Review: THE SHELTER

For every slasher or gore-filled genre entry, I try to keep an eye on films that rely more on your psychological side. It’s a gamble, with most films falling in the category ending up being a rehash of the same ol’ mind-trip that their protagonists go through. Some films however, offer something different, something intellectual […]

Scream Factory triple review: WHITE OF THE EYE, THE CAR and WOMEN’S PRISON MASSACRE!!

With how many quality releases the gang over at Scream Factory puts out every year, it can be a bit overwhelming (I’m kidding, it’s actually pretty great). They’ve been on a solid roll since making their mark with the awesome HALLOWEEN II and HALLOWEEN III: SEASON OF THE WITCH blurays they used to help kickstart the horror […]

Fantasia Film Fest Review: OBSERVANCE

The psychological thriller subgenre of horror has always been one that either works or it doesn’t. When it hits, you can either get a JACOB’S LADDER or you can get,..well…a GOTHIKA. It’s hard for a film that falls somewhere within that kind of film to not be paint by numbers, having spooky and oddly random metaphorical […]

Review: PHOBIA

Oh, Phobias. While all of us deal with them in one way or another, some fears are almost crippling, taking an individual over and refusing to let said individual live their normal life. Phobias are always ripe for cinematic dissection, and Rory Douglas Abel’s aptly titled PHOBIA does just that. Taking the more common than you’d think Agoraphobia […]

TEN LITTLE INDIANS Gets New Spin In DON’T BLINK Trailer; Mena Suvari, Zack Ward, Brian Austin Green Lead Cast

There’s something easy to latch onto with films that take the Agatha Christie written “And Then There Were None” (or TEN LITTLE INDIANS) and give it a brand new spin. I happen to love films that fall into that category, as it’s always a lot of fun to watch a film based on a group […]

Review: ANNA

There is something fascinating about the concept of a person with the ability to get into another person’s mind, with also having the ability to experience their memories. This is the case in Jorge Dorado’s film ANNA.  Also known in other regions as MINDSCAPE,  the film is an experience, full of the thrill of a universe […]

Review: MR. JONES

It’s refreshing to expect one thing from a film and to walk out of it, having sat through something completely different than what you initially thought it would be. While the genre has had more than its share of bad found footage/POV-style films, every once in a while one comes that dares to do something different, […]

Beyond Fright Review: THE MACHINE (2014)

  Creating an science-fiction film that not only spins a good yarn, but also makes its viewers think is something that just isn’t all to common these days, as the majority of what comes out in the sci-fi genre seems to be either a graphic novel adaption of something popular or  a huge studio tent-pole […]
