Review: SCARE CAMPAIGN

sc

Tackling the subject of pranks and how one can go horribly wrong, Brothers Colin and Cameron Cairnes’ SCARE CAMPAIGN takes that idea and runs with it quite effectively.

Review: JACK GOES HOME

unnamed-6

There are films like THE AVENGERS, where you walk into them to see things explode, silly superhero fare and a fun time. Then there are films that you watch to really hit a nerve with you, to challenge you and to invoke a sense of relation within you. I tend to gravitate towards those types […]
