Review: BOUND TO VENGEANCE

When it comes to female captive/revenge films, it’s become such a common practice of injecting rape scenes to inject a hefty amount of shock into what is an already scary idea of a situation.

“Look What I Made You”: In Defense Of James Wan’s DEATH SENTENCE (2007)

Mention James Wan’s name, and more times than not, the SAW or INSIDIOUS series will come up. Every once in a great while, a fan of the criminally underrated DEAD SILENCE will be brought up (and rightfully so, it’s wonderful), but for the most part, Wan’s fanbase tends to focus on the traps of SAW, the […]
