The end of the world is nothing we want to be witnesses of. Having to live next door to someone you despise during this apocalypse must make it all the more difficult.

Are Horror Fans Helping or Hurting the Genre?
Written by Herner Klenthur, August 2, 2015
I read a great article earlier in the week titled ‘F*ck You – An Open Letter to the Horror Community‘. Put plainly the article looked at the current state of indie horror film making and why so many up and coming talents are being overlooked because horror fans are refusing to embrace and support them. Now

Written by Jason McDonald, August 1, 2015
In L.A.there are a lot of neat movie experiences to be had.  Personally I’m a big fan of the outdoor screenings we have here like Street Food Cinema or Cinespia where they play movies in the Hollywood Cemetery.  But then there are some events that stand out above all others. This year Horror’s Hallowed Ground

Cooties Movie Review
Written by Simon Rother, August 1, 2015
When horror and comedy meet, it takes some great horror and some hilarious comedy to make things work. Thankfully, this occurs in the hysterical “Cooties”, making its Canadian premiere at the 2015 edition of Montreal’s Fantasia International Film Festival. The fact that Elijah Wood and Rainn Wilson star in this movie makes it all the

We Are Still Here (2015) Movie Review
Written by Simon Rother, August 1, 2015
If you’re looking for a nice throwback to old school horror, look no further than “We Are Still Here”, being presented for the first time in Canada at the 2015 edition of Fantasia’s International Film Festival. Set in the 1970s, Anne (Barbara Crampton; “Re-Animator”; “From Beyond”) and Paul have bought a house in the rural

Deathgasm Movie Review
Written by Simon Rother, August 1, 2015
Are you a metalhead? Are you an outcast? Have you ever resurrected demons through the playing of an ancient tune? No? That’s ok. You may still appreciate “Deathgasm”, straight out of New Zealand, making its Canadian premiere at this summer’s Fantasia International Film Festival. Brodie has moved in with his uncle and his jock of

Antisocial 2 Movie Review
Written by Simon Rother, August 1, 2015
After “Antisocial” made its world premiere at Montreal’s Fantasia International Film Festival in 2013, it was only logical that its sequel, “Antisocial 2”, made another world premiere at the same festival. However, contrary to its predecessor, the follow-up film failed to impress and entertain me. “Antisocial 2” takes place a few months after the events

Written by Simon Rother, August 1, 2015
Bullying is a common issue in every school across the world. It takes a supernatural turn in “Some Kind of Hate”, being presented for the first time in Canada at Montreal’s International Film Festival.

10 Indie Horror Films Every Horror Fan Should See!
Written by Flay Otters, August 1, 2015
There was a bit of noise out of the Independent Spirit Awards recently surrounding the idea of ‘independent’ or ‘low budget’ and what that means. A twenty million dollar budget and a huge promotional machine behind a film seems, to me anyway, to strip away a little of what makes a film ‘independent.’ That said,

Written by Jason McDonald, August 1, 2015
“The Crow” remake, unlike it’s titular character, can’t seem to come back to life no matter how hard it tries.  First it was various lead actors coming and going to the project and now it looks like financial issues might be gumming up the works for this latest remake. According to Screen Daily, production on “The
