    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 […]

Beyond Fright Review: MY LIFE DIRECTED BY NICOLAS WINDING REFN

Danish born filmmaker Nicolas Winding Refn is one of the most exciting and diverse directors working in and outside the film industry today. A cinephile who states that Tobe Hooper’s TEXAS CHAIN SAW MASSACRE is the film that cemented his desire to one day make a picture himself, Refn’s films exude such cinematic passion with […]

Icons of Fright Interview With EJECTA/PONTYPOOL Screenwriter Tony Burgess!!

Screenwriter/actor Tony Burgess has done a hell of a job creating a name for himself by writing such unique genre films that really stand out from most others. Films like the awesome PONTYPOOL and the disgustingly surreal, yet completely entertaining SEPTIC MAN, are just two examples of a screenwriter who refuses to be confined by […]

Alien abduction films have a power of planting a seed of thought, a small fraction of an idea inside of its viewer, one that makes you picture the worsts of situations one could come upon. When done right, they can frighten us as a viewers, implant the scary idea and question of “What if we […]

Films that are not only throwbacks to the exploitation films of the old days, but are also able to recapture that feeling of bloody and hilariously  fun genre films (another one […]
