    Contest- Win A Free Digital Copy of THE BLAIR WITCH PROJECT, Courtesy Of Lionsgate!

    Full disclosure: I’ve only seen THE BLAIR WITCH PROJECT once, and that was when it was first released. 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 […]

    Review: GRACE: THE POSSESSION

    It is safe to say that there is no shortage of films out right now that involve someone being possessed by a demonic entity. When done right, those types of films can scare even the most hardcore horror aficionado. We love that stuff, so naturally, it’s safe to say our outlook on them is to say […]

Bluray Review: THE SQUAD

Scream Factory’s lineup of original releases have been somewhat of a hit or miss thing for viewers. Some, like the French Lovecraft-ian DEAD SHADOWS were met with moderately positive praise and some of the them, such as THE MONKEY’S PAW was not. Personally, I’m a big supporter of the gang at Scream Factory releasing these […]

The creature horror film, LATE PHASES is set to be released by Dark Sky Films on November 21st and the […]

A film so visually and emotional resonant, that it transcends any boundaries or limitations that are typically placed on the type of genre that the film falls under. A rare gem, led by one brave and […]
