The film scared the living hell out of me, and though it would probably do nothing to me these days, a full 15-years later, I still haven’t had the nerve to revisit it. Well, a lot of people […]

    Review: BENEATH (2014)

    There’s something utterly terrifying and claustrophobic about being stuck in tight places, especially when you’re surrounded by people everywhere you turn. It’s no surprise that that fear of those tight spaces is so prevalent in people today, as an individual’s personal space and fear of said personal space being invaded is enough to drive someone […]

The arrival of Kevin Smith and his debut film CLERKS brought on the idea that talking fast and being extremely profane makes for an entertaining movie.
