    The film adaption of Dan Shaffer’s graphic novel, The Scribbler, began production back in 2012, and it’s been one that I’ve been anticipating for quite some time. Shaffer’s graphic novel is a fun one, and judging from the new trailer for the film (also penned by Shaffer), THE SCRIBBLER looks like a stylish and completely […]

    Review: SANCTUARY: QUITE A CONUNDRUM

    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. What so many filmmakers didn’t take away from Smith’s film though, is that there has to be intelligence, wit, and heart behind those seemingly profane personalities. Without those elements, […]

Review: VARSITY BLOOD

Oh, high school horror, how I love thee. Not really, but hey, I’m open to anything in front of me at least once. Earlier in the year, Lucky McKee & Chris Silvertson gave horror fans an interesting entry with ALL CHEERLEADERS DIE, a movie that while not perfect, was a lot of fun and very […]

Brand New Trailer For L.A. SLASHER Promises Death To Reality TV!!

Martin Owen’s L.A. SLASHER has done an excellent job establishing a good sized buzz for itself, with convention appearances, viral marketing and the promise of bringing the “death to reality TV”, which sounds like one excellent plan to me. While just the synopsis alone is enough to turn most horror fans on, today the debut […]

Review: THE QUIET ONES (2014)

Hammer Films have for the most part, done a good job with choosing which films to make since returning in 2007 to give horror fans some genuinely good entertainment. Sure, for every LET ME IN, there’s been entries like THE RESIDENT, but for the most part, Hammer has done a great job at returning as […]

Review: ROSEMARY’S BABY (2014)

With everything under the sun being remade these days, it was only a matter of time before ROSEMARY’S BABY would see the dreaded redux.
