    Review: APPLECART

    Dustin Wayde Mills isn’t your average genre filmmaker. While other filmmakers are busy trying to appease the mass consumption of horseshit, a certain small group of filmmakers like Mills are doing what any filmmaker not following the Spielberg playbook of tentpole and blockbuster event film do: truly create art. Not in a hipster, “I’m an […]

SXSW Review: WE ARE STILL HERE

There comes a time in every subgenre of horror, when as viewers, we’ve just seen it all. Slasher films lost their edge a few years into the ‘80s and the teenage whodunit horror films of the late ‘90s lost their appeal not long after making their mark. In the last few years, the haunted house […]

Review: VALLEY OF THE SASQUATCH

The October People are on a roll. Taking genre subjects and injecting them into well written and acted dramas, films like Jeremy Berg’s THE INVOKING and THE DEVICE have done a great job giving viewers an old school, slow-burn approach to storytelling, all while being completely engrossing while doing so. Now switching roles a bit, […]
