    Fantasia Review: CYBERNATURAL

    While the found footage/pov sub-genre has seemingly been done to death, this year’s Fantasia International Film Festival has done its best to prove otherwise, with completely solid efforts such as the Patrick Brice/Mark Duplass horror-comedy CREEP (review soon), and now, Leo Gabriadza’s Skype-based horror film CYBERNATURAL.  The technology-led horror film not only provides viewers with enough shock and […]

    Fantasia Review: AT THE DEVIL’S DOOR

    Nicholas McCarthy hit the horror scene hard with his 2012 feature debut, THE PACT, catching viewers off guard and getting tons of praise within the horror community as well. With such a strong first film, the pressures of following up that debut could make a lesser man cave under the pressure, but alas, McCarthy obviously […]

    Exploitation Alley: CONTAMINATION .7

    I decided to ask a friend for a recommendation recently (said friend being  Jerry) , and he suggested this epic, train wreck of a film. After viewing it, I still don’t know if I want to punch him and revoke my friendship, or bake him cookies, and give him a high five.  I mean, this film […]

    “In sleep he sang to me, in dreams he came…” It’s not a secret that I’m a jazz-handing, jazz squaring, belt singing musical theatre fangirl.  Pair my love of horror movies with my obsession of musicals and it’s no surprise that one of my favorite horror movie characters is the famous “Phantom of the ______.”  […]

Is LIFE AFTER BETH Digging A Little BENEATH THE SURFACE?

Coming up with an original story is a tough one, in a day and age where just about every story has been a told a multitude of times, in various incarnations. The idea of working hard on a project, putting your time, blood, sweat, tears and well..your money into something just to see key images […]

Review: NOTHING BAD CAN HAPPEN

While films having to do with torture, causing physical and mental harm to another individual typically run the risk of committing acts to film for shock’s sake, some films dealing with such situations can rise above the much dreaded “torture-porn” label, instead heading into cinema that uses shocking and horrific moments as not only statements, […]

Exploitation Alley: MONSTROSITY (AKA- THE ATOMIC BRAIN)!!!

This is one film that I simply could not believe I had never seen before. I have a space in my heart reserved for weird, trippy (and somewhat terrible films) films, especially if they’re in black and white…I just can’t get enough.  Alas, I went into this expecting something great, and within a few minutes […]
