The first one, a zombie film full of CG blood and the other, a trippy nightmare of a film that will not leave your head for days. Some good, some bad, both hitting shelves […]

Fantastic Fest review: THE MIND’S EYE

2013’s ALMOST HUMAN showcased not only the talents of director Joe Begos, actor/editor Josh Ethier and actor Graham Skipper, but a genuine love for all things John Carpenter and David Cronenberg.

There’s a feeling that comes along once in a while, where you witness a film that just changes things.

Focusing on Kat (Mad Men‘s Kiernan Shipka), a fragile young girl […]

Ash Gets A Crew in Brand new ASH VS. EVIL DEAD Featurette

Full disclosure: I was more than skeptical when the original announcement of ASH VS. EVIL DEAD hit computers everywhere. The first film in the EVIL DEAD series is one I hold high with great esteem, and as much as I dig EVIL DEAD 2, the approach to go silly with that one and ESPECIALLY in […]

Icons of Fright Talks SOME KIND OF HATE With Director Adam Egypt Mortimer

It’s no secret that I absolutely loved Adam Egypt Mortimer’s SOME KIND OF HATE (review). The supernatural revenge film (starring Ronen Rubenstein and Grace Phipps and now in theaters/on iTunes/VOD) deals with a young man trying to keep his anger at bay, all while being continuously picked on, was one that deeply resonated with me. While not […]
