Review: A PLAGUE SO PLEASANT

One topic that always comes up whenever someone learns I’m a horror fan is if I watched the latest WALKING DEAD episode (or FEAR THE WALKING DEAD at the time of this writing). This question tends to come from people who wouldn’t declare themselves a horror fan, but just a casual viewer. This is something […]

Review: I-LIVED

Franck Khalfoun’s 2012 MANIAC remake was definitely a showcase of what the director could, when it comes to technical shots and doing something quite different than what was expected from him. While we initially believed that his studio followup, AMITYVILLE: THE REAWAKENING would came next, Khalfoun was able to slip in a smaller, very DIY-like […]

Beyond Fright Review: COMET

We’ve all been there, crossing paths with someone who is able to completely take you back and keep you enthralled just at the idea of spending more time talking to them. That awkward feeling in your stomach and the adrenaline-filled, almost child-like excitement that makes you think or at least hope that you’ll be able […]

Review: THE POLTERGEIST OF BORLEY FOREST

Oh boy. Walking into a film like THE POLTERGEIST OF BORLEY FOREST, you find yourself expecting either a found footage entry akin to everything we’ve seen in the last few years, or another haunting film that well, we’ve all seen time and time again. While it’s definitely not another found footage film, it IS the […]

Review: THE WALKING DECEASED

I’ve always subscribed to the idea that film parodies only work when they’re played straight. When the situation is what brings the laughs, instead of continual references and camera winks, so to speak. Films like the SCARY MOVIE or A HAUNTED HOUSE series never quite did the trick, with turning cliche-filled parts of the films […]

Review: SOMETHING WICKED

A suspenseful tale is always something that I find incredibly easy to jump into. There’s nothing like a mystery, one that leads you down a path with its characters, and providing its share of twists, catching you off guard. The flipside to that ability to engage a film’s audience is when a mystery story doesn’t […]

Bluray Review: TUSK

Kevin Smith is definitely at an interesting point in his career. Once the king of the indie comedy genre, Smith has worked hard at dipping his toes in genres that typically wouldn’t be associated with the same guy whose characters complained about working on their day off, or various other topics that many people found […]

Review: DAY OF THE MUMMY

Oh mummy movies with huge faces and full blown action-extravaganza DVD covers. I mean, judging from the look of this one, DAY OF THE MUMMY is sure to be a full on EPIC adventure film, full of mummy-horror and a lot of chasing jeeps and guns, right? Sadly, the reality of the film tends to […]
