Posted by Jared | Posted 6 days ago.
The genre of “New Extremism” is deeply routed in horror’s history and a sub-genre of that, recently dubbed “New French Extremism” is a version I find particularly interesting.  New French Extremism lingers in those moral grey areas that litter our world, shocking audiences with its’ unrelenting deceptions of brutal violence and graphic sexuality.  Taboo is [...]

Here Comes The Devil (2012) review
Posted by Flay Otters | Posted 99 days ago.
What might seem like a stock-standard demonic possession film from the outside, Here Comes The Devil is a much different thing once you’re into it.

Sennentuntschi: Curse of the Alps review
Posted by Flay Otters | Posted 134 days ago.
After watching a film like Sennentuntschi: Curse Of The Alps (full title, although I care much more for just the first word as the title), one has to wonder why more genre/horror films don’t come out of Switzerland. Because beyond some narrative confusion at points, director Michael Steiner’s Sennentuntschi is a brilliant bit of folklore [...]
