DVD Review: THE HORROR NETWORK

thn

Horror anthologies are making a huge comeback and I have no complaints. The recently released TALES OF HALLOWEEN has proven to be a fan favorite on social media and will surely continue to live on as a Halloween favorite.

Luckily, the Michael Polish-helmed AMNESIAC is just that kind of film. A mystery thriller […]

Fantastic Fest review: THE DEVIL’S CANDY

Some films leave an impact on you so profoundly, that it takes a while for you to fully wrap your head around them.
