    Review: DELIVERY: THE BEAST WITHIN

    Possessed pregnancies seems to be a subgenre that is alive and booming, with film likes DEVIL’S DUE, THE DEVIL INCARNATE and now Brian Netto’s  DELIVERY: THE BEAST WITHIN. I don’t know if someone in independent horror land just wants to steer potential baby-makers away from having a kid with stories of the devil executing his […]

    Review: GRAVE HALLOWEEN

    Having a really solid foundation to a film gives a filmmaker a step in the right direction. Where it goes from there is up to a good combination of everything from a solid script, and eye for telling a visually striking film and performances that sell the story and the foundation. While Steven R. Monroe(director […]

Review: THE DEVICE (2014)

These days, alien abduction films tend to be limited to some form of POV and/or found footage angle, bypassing the classic approach, letting things play out in a narrative and visually appealing way.

Genre Gut Punches: “The Dog Monologue” in FROZEN

Bluray Review: PUMPKINHEAD

The first and only time I had seen PUMPKINHEAD was upon its initial release, maybe once since, but I can’t remember for the life of me. From what I recall, I liked it but never thought it was anything to write home about. Well, some things change, and some films age in ways that change […]
