Review: MOCKINGBIRD

mockingbird-bryan-bertino-blumhouse-tilt

After an extremely successful run with his debut film THE STRANGERS, director Bryan Bertino’s follow-up was highly anticipated.  Boasting a unique spin on the ‘found footage’ subgenre, MOCKINGBIRD seemed like it was going to be a tense second film from Bertino.  Unfortunately, MOCKINGBIRD is the definition of sophomore slump.  It possesses some of the simplistic […]

Review: INNER DEMONS

Inner Demons still 4

Addiction is scarier than any horror film. The way in which drugs, alcohol or any other substances can overtake someone and cause them to become somebody completely different than who they truly are, is a terrifyingly real issue, and while it’s been tackled in a couple of genre films over the last couple of years […]

Review: DELIVERY: THE BEAST WITHIN

Screen Grab 019 (1)

Possessed pregnancies seems to be a subgenre that is alive and booming, with film likes DEVIL’S DUE, THE DEVIL INCARNATE and now Brian Netto’s  DELIVERY: THE BEAST WITHIN. I don’t know if someone in independent horror land just wants to steer potential baby-makers away from having a kid with stories of the devil executing his […]

Review: AS ABOVE, SO BELOW (2014)

As-Above-So-Below

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 […]

Fantasia Review: CREEP

Creep - 2

Horror comedies can be quite the odd combination at times. When a film focuses too much on one over the other, it runs the risk of pushing certain fans away. Throw the found-footage/POV angle into the mix, and well, the odds are almost against you from the get-go. Luckily, the Patrick Brice/Mark Duplass collaboration CREEP […]
