    Review: APPLECART

    Dustin Wayde Mills isn’t your average genre filmmaker. While other filmmakers are busy trying to appease the mass consumption of horseshit, a certain small group of filmmakers like Mills are doing what any filmmaker not following the Spielberg playbook of tentpole and blockbuster event film do: truly create art. Not in a hipster, “I’m an […]

    Review: IT FOLLOWS

    There comes a time that we all fear as movie fans–that moment when you actually sit down to watch a film that either you, or the media, has been hyping up in your head. The premise of IT FOLLOWS is somewhat preposterous at first mention: On their second date, Jay and Hugh have sex. Afterwards, […]

V/H/S Star Hannah Fierman Joins Cast of Crowdfunded Film EVENTS SURROUNDING A PEEPING TOM & THE HORROR THAT FOLLOWED!

The scariest part of the first V/H/S film was easily the performance of Hannah Fierman, the infamous “I LIKE YOU” girl in the “Amateur Night” segment. Ever sense viewing that segment, I have been absolutely interested in what Fierman has been up to, project wise, and news has come our way that she has officially […]

Review: HALO NIGHTFALL

Making a film adaption of a popular video game series can be somewhat of a tricky endeavor. When you already have a set fanbase expecting the elements of the games translated perfectly into film form, the chance of making a successful one is more time than not, a disappointment. Unfortunately, such is the case with […]

Review: SPRING

Every year, a select few films are able to do what most filmmakers aspire to: transcend the genre the film would typically fall into and become something else, something greater. These films not only entertain us (as they should), but invoke an emotional response for one reason or another. Maybe the viewer has gone through […]

Review: SOMETHING WICKED

A suspenseful tale is always something that I find incredibly easy to jump into. There’s nothing like a mystery, one that leads you down a path with its characters, and providing its share of twists, catching you off guard. The flipside to that ability to engage a film’s audience is when a mystery story doesn’t […]
