uni

Universal is giving horror fans a double shot of Blumhouse horror, with today’s release of M. Night Shyamalan’s creepy as hell POV film, THE VISIT, as well as Eli Roth’s cannibal horror homage, THE GREEN INFERNO. How do these two films and their DVD/Bluray releases fare for their respective directors? Quite antithetically, with the former being […]

maxresdefault (4)

There are filmmakers out there who themselves are die-hard horror fans that spend hours upon hours researching and brainstorming to try and come up with an idea of creating a film that will go against the norm and become something that will stand on its own and apart from the other films competing for that […]

Review: OPEN WINDOWS

ow2

I experienced a wave of conflicting emotions during Nacho Vigalondo’s English language debut, OPEN WINDOWS. Vigalondo, best known for his 2007 breakthrough Spanish thriller TIMECRIMES, is a director who is undoubtedly gifted at telling his stories in unique ways.

Fantasia Review: CYBERNATURAL

Cybernatural 3

While the found footage/pov sub-genre has seemingly been done to death, this year’s Fantasia International Film Festival has done its best to prove otherwise, with completely solid efforts such as the Patrick Brice/Mark Duplass horror-comedy CREEP (review soon), and now, Leo Gabriadza’s Skype-based horror film CYBERNATURAL.  The technology-led horror film not only provides viewers with enough shock and […]

We’re Glad They Found This Footage: SIX POV MOVIES THAT WE LOVE

POV

Let’s be honest here. Out of 10 “found footage” type films, you’re lucky if two or three are actually enjoyable. Why the characters in said sub-genre always seems to have to document EVERYTHING might have worked early on, when the style was created, by 2014, we’ve seen so many variations of it, that the films […]
