B.U.F.F. review: KILL YOUR FRIENDS

In 1996, the British Music Industry accumulated a record number of sales.

Fierce competitions erupted between the music labels, managers, and everyone […]

Review: THE SHELTER

For every slasher or gore-filled genre entry, I try to keep an eye on films that rely more on your psychological side. It’s a gamble, with most films falling in the category ending up being a rehash of the same ol’ mind-trip that their protagonists go through.

Chattanooga Film Fest review: KRISHA

Bluray Review: DISTURBING BEHAVIOR

After being responsible for this year’s Bluray release of ZOMBIE HIGH, the gang at Scream Factory must have decided to put out a film with a similar plot, a better soundtrack and a much more entertaining ride, 1998’s DISTURBING BEHAVIOR. While it’s far from a perfect film, the ’90s teen body-snatcher yarn is one that […]
