• 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: BENEATH (2014)

There’s something utterly terrifying and claustrophobic about being stuck in tight places, especially when you’re surrounded by people everywhere you turn. It’s no surprise that that fear of those tight spaces is so prevalent in people today, as an individual’s personal space and fear of said personal space being invaded is enough to drive someone […]

Review: GRACE: THE POSSESSION

It is safe to say that there is no shortage of films out right now that involve someone being possessed by a demonic entity. When done right, those types of films can scare even the most hardcore horror aficionado. We love that stuff, so naturally, it’s safe to say our outlook on them is to say […]

Actress, screenwriter, journalist, and make-up artist Axelle Carolyn recently added “director” to her long list of credentials with her debut flick, SOULMATE.  After a couple of short films, Carolyn finally tackled a feature, and did so with wonderful results.  Presented by her husband, Neil Marshall (THE DESCENT) Axelle Carolyn has molded an elegant, haunting, and […]

Review: LFO

*Editor’s note: A short background on my experience coming across Antonio Tublen’s film, LFO: I arrived in Austin, TX last year (2013) for Fantastic Fest, and immediately became lost. My phone’s battery had died, and my buds and I were pretty much in the middle of nowhere (so we thought). We sat there on a curb […]

Trailer Debut For ‘A Girl Walks Home Alone At Night’

I was fortunate enough to catch a very early screening of this bizarre and unique debut film from first time feature writer/director Ana Lily Amirpour and thought it was excellent. When I say bizarre and unique, I mean it’s similar to the way I felt first seeing the original version of LET THE RIGHT ONE […]
