Chattanooga Film Fest review: KRISHA

unnamed (2)

Taking cues from the best of John Cassavetes, the Trey Edward Shults-helmed KRISHA is a film that is able to transport you to the darkest of family get-togethers. Focusing on a Thanksgiving in which the decade-absent Krisha returns in hopes of reconnecting with a son she abandoned, a sister who has many unresolved issues with […]

Bluray Review: WHAT HAVE YOU DONE TO SOLANGE?

solange

As the then brand-new format of the Digital Versatile Disc began making it presence quite apparent in the late 1990’s and early 2000’s, hundreds upon hundreds of horror films that had either been forgotten or banished into obscurity suddenly began to resurface and slowly obtain a devoted audience. Everything from lesser-known slashers and overlooked art-house […]

After being responsible for this year’s Bluray release of ZOMBIE HIGH, the gang at Scream Factory must have decided to put out a film with a similar plot, a better soundtrack and a much more entertaining ride, 1998’s DISTURBING BEHAVIOR. While it’s far from a perfect film, the ’90s teen body-snatcher yarn is one that […]

Ah, The Mutilator, the memories of my teenage years  you bring back. I remember the exact moment I gazed upon your VHS box in the summer of 1987 at El Chaparral Supermarket and held you in my arms for the very first time. Your artwork sent chills down my spine and I knew right then […]

[…]

Review: ALIENATED

“I want to tell you something, but I don’t want you to get mad.” This is something that stops me in my tracks every time I hear it. I prepare for the worst, maybe hold my breath, and let the anxiety hit me like a pile of bricks. Maybe it’s something people hear often when […]

Review: CABIN FEVER (2016)

cfban

In 2002, director Eli Roth threw his proverbial hat into the horror ring, with CABIN FEVER, a film that a lot of horror fans consider a modern day splatter classic. The shocker, which revolved around a group of vacationing students who end up coming into contact with a flesh-eating virus, was filled to the brim […]
