    THINGS I LEARNED FROM WATCHING THE HOSTEL TRILOGY IN ONE SITTING

    There are moments in my life where I make extremely unwise decisions and I will be the last to admit it when I’ve made a mistake.  However, this is an instance where I will scream from the rooftops how much of an idiot I am.  I’m the type of person that likes to watch franchises […]

    Review: DON’T BLINK

    Ensemble films can be quite the tricky endeavor, especially for a first time director.

Review: AS ABOVE, SO BELOW (2014)

Theatrical horror is notoriously disappointing, so the expectations I had for AS ABOVE, SO BELOW were almost nonexistent.  The lure of cave exploration (a la THE DESCENT) is 100% the only reason I went to see the film, and I’m glad to say that I was pleasantly surprised with how much I enjoyed myself.  I […]
