Review: THE SHELTER

cropped-the-shelter-final1

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 […]

Chattanooga Film Fest review: KRISHA

unnamed (2)

Taking cues from the best of John Cassavetes, the Trey Edward Shults-helmed KRISHA is a film that is able to transport you to the darkest of family get-togethers. Focusing on a Thanksgiving in which the decade-absent Krisha returns in hopes of reconnecting with a son she abandoned, a sister who has many unresolved issues with […]

While it’s far from a perfect film, the ’90s teen body-snatcher yarn is one that […]

Ah, The Mutilator, the memories of my teenage years  you bring back. I remember the exact moment I gazed upon your VHS box in the summer of 1987 at El Chaparral Supermarket and held you in my arms for the very first time. Your artwork sent chills down my spine and I knew right then […]

Review: ALL HELL BREAKS LOOSE

When creating exploitation movies, there’s a bit of a challenge in making them out of artistic integrity versus utilizing the genre to make generic material. When Quentin Tarantino and Robert Rodriguez joined forces to create their GRINDHOUSE project, both talents embarked on a still divisive film experience that wasn’t as commercially successful as hoped for.

Review: CAMINO

CAM_03

Whether Zoe Bell is lead actress in a movie or doing stunt work for films by Quentin Tarantino, one thing is for sure, Zoe Bell is badass. Leading up to seeing a screener of director Josh C. Waller’s film, Camino, I had only known Zoe Bell’s work as mostly that of a stunt woman. When […]
