Beyond Fright Review: BAD TURN WORSE

A good Texas-pulp thriller can be hard to come by. That feeling and mood that filled stories written by Jim Thompson and various others just don’t seem to translate to film that often.

SMITH’s review of KILLER JOE!!!

Murder, trailer parks, backstabbing, and…fried chicken? Some interesting ingredients to a film, but William Friedkin’s KILLER JOE utilizes all four of them into a movie that is at times hilarious, awkward and downright scary all at once. While it’s not necessarily a horror film per se’, there are quite a few interesting and sometimes brutal […]
