• LET’S TALK ABOUT AMERICAN HORROR STORY: FREAK SHOW

    We’re over halfway through the fourth season of AMERICAN HORROR STORY and Ryan Murphy has once again served us a peculiar plate of camp, horror, and recycled storytelling.  Of all the horror television shows out there, the only one I follow religiously is AHS.  Perhaps it’s my small obsession with Frances Conroy or the show’s […]

    Beyond Fright Review: THE MULE

    Good, original crime thrillers can be extremely difficult to come by. For ever GOODFELLAS or FARGO, there are quite a few efforts that end up falling a bit flat, giving viewers a definite “been there, done that” feeling. When original crime films do come, it’s typically out of nowhere and a lasting effort that ends […]

Review: GROW UP, TONY PHILLIPS

Back in 2009, I caught a screening of Emily Hagins’ zombie film PATHOGEN at a women in film festival, followed by ZOMBIE GIRL: THE MOVIE, a documentary centered around her making this film.  At the time of PATHOGEN‘s production, Hagins was merely twelve years old.  It was an impressive film, regardless of her age, and […]

Review: V/H/S: VIRAL

There comes a point in every series, in which some (or all) of the magic that made a franchise’s first entry so fun to latch onto. When 2012’s V/H/S hit, it showcased a cool concept of various horrible stories playing out on videotapes that hoodlums watched. The following year, V/H/S/2 took the same approach, added […]

Review: MOCKINGBIRD

After an extremely successful run with his debut film THE STRANGERS, director Bryan Bertino’s follow-up was highly anticipated.  Boasting a unique spin on the ‘found footage’ subgenre, MOCKINGBIRD seemed like it was going to be a tense second film from Bertino.  Unfortunately, MOCKINGBIRD is the definition of sophomore slump.  It possesses some of the simplistic […]
