Review: THE BEAST

the-beast

I have never seen horses have sex (nor has the opportunity ever risen), but the opening sequence of Walerian Borowczyk’s THE BEAST decided to break my cherry. With close ups of horse vaginas gaping open for the taking, I did not deny what would come next, but a huge dripping horse penis accepting the inviation […]

Fantastic Fest review: THE MIND’S EYE

Mind's eye

2013’s ALMOST HUMAN showcased not only the talents of director Joe Begos, actor/editor Josh Ethier and actor Graham Skipper, but a genuine love for all things John Carpenter and David Cronenberg.

Review: DARK WAS THE NIGHT

There’s something incredibly powerful when genre films are elevated by great writing. As a fan of horror, there is no greater reward to being given a hell of a story in which you CARE and sympathize for every character in front of you. It’s what sets certain horror films apart from typical slasher fare, and […]

There are films that you know are not good films by any means, but you still find yourself attracted to them. Films that cause you to wonder why you’re watching them, but you find yourself watching them over and over again, for some sadistic and inhumane reason, who knows, maybe people like myself are just […]
