    Review: PARA ELISA

    The familiar student who desperately needs money to go on a class trip and accepts the wrong job is the starting point of  Juanra Fernandez’s PARA ELISA, but there’s a whole lot of things going on within the story that elevates the Spanish film into some terrifyingly original places. Filled with dread and tension, it’s […]

    Review: BLOOD PUNCH

    A rehab facility is the perfect place to find someone to cook meth, right? Only in BLOOD PUNCH does that scenario feel appropriate as this dark comedy brings together actors from one of the many POWER RANGERS shows and one of the writers of THE TIGGER MOVIE in a bloody, drug fueled epic that will […]

    Review: BIG SKY

    I first saw actress Bella Thorne on a morning talk show promoting her teen comedy THE DUFF and wasn’t sure how to interpret her. That film was aimed towards the MTV audience that watches shows like AWKWARD and TEEN MOM.  She seemed to struggle a bit in the interview trying to establish that her film was […]

    Review: INNSMOUTH

    Watching filmmakers adapt the works of H.P. Lovecraft is always a good thing in my book, and with films like RE-ANIMATOR, FROM BEYOND, and even entries that may not be straight from the source but more of an homage (see Carpenter’s IN THE MOUTH OF MADNESS), you can tell that Lovecraft’s influence is prevalent and definitely […]

All that needs to be said to reel me into a film is the word CULT. It’s the fastest way to really catch my attention, and it guarantees that I’ll be on board to check it out. Thankfully, Candy Factory Films seems to agree, because the trailer to their new film LIMBUS, is so full […]

Event Report: FLASHBACK WEEKEND 2015

Today (8/8/15) I attended my second Flashback Weekend in Rosemont, Illinois. As a lifelong horror fan, I wasn’t aware that convention culture existed in the midwest until the last couple years. Last year I attended my first convention c2e2 in Chicago, primarily to meet Tony Todd as CANDYMAN is still one of the scariest movies […]

Review: THE GIFT

Considering Joel Edgerton acted as the director/writer/producer and star of THE GIFT, it’s safe to say that the newest Blumhouse release was sincerely presented as his vision. Bleak, unnerving, and at times, difficult to stomach, THE GIFT is a thrilling exploration of the consequences of how we treat one another.  The yuppie couple of Simon (Jason Bateman) and Robyn (Rebecca […]

New Trailer for L. Gustavo Cooper’s JUNE hits; Reminds you not to upset demonic children

Confession: the evil children subgenre of horror is one that is instantly able to sink its hooks into me. I love the stuff, and I’ll give any film that falls into that category a watch or two. The upcoming film JUNE, directed by pro skateboarder turned filmmaker L. Gustavo Cooper, just dropped its trailer and […]

First Trailer For THE LAST WITCH HUNTER Arrives; Pretty Impressive Cast

Horror/action hybrids are always a gamble to me. Sometimes they tend to discard all horror elements and end up being stale (see I, FRANKENSTEIN and the majority of the UNDERWORLD films), but then again, there are ones that combine both elements to be a great combination of both (CONSTANTINE). One film that has been on […]
