Written by Chris Savage, October 29, 2015
Several years ago we ushered in the trailer for the short horror film Hellraiser: Origins from Mike Le Han and Paul Gerrard, a short which was a pitch for the reboot of the Hellraiser franchise, but for whatever reason Dimension Films either didn’t take notice or they passed on the pitch. Either way, we got a

Cooties (2014) Review – Stanley Film Festival
Written by Flay Otters, May 16, 2015
There aren’t a lot of films that tackle the ‘killer-kid/killing kids’ sub-genre because, mainly, this is taboo territory. Films like Max Kalmanowicz’ The Children (1980) or the beautiful 1976 Spanish film, Who Can Kill A Child? or even the original Children Of The Corn, the Belgian Film Welp/Cub or Cronenberg’s The Brood (1979) are near the

The Invitation Movie Review ( SXSW 2015 )
Written by Flay Otters, April 20, 2015
The slow starting, rumbling dread and unease of Karyn Kusama’s The Invitation is borne out in a lot of different ways. From painfully uncomfortable social interactions to suspicions of ulterior motives to unequal emotional outpourings – all of which play right into the wheelhouse of those squigged out by those type of things. This opens

Unfriended Movie Review SXSW 2015
Written by Flay Otters, April 18, 2015
Technology is a fleeting thing – the right now thing that is intertwined in most everyone’s day-to-day life becomes the butt of a joke the next day and near forgotten soon thereafter. It is the nature of the ever-changing, ever-charging technological world we find ourselves in. So it is natural for a film like Unfriended

Nina Forever Movie Review – SXSW 2015
Written by Flay Otters, March 30, 2015
There are so many many things about Ben and Chris Blaine’s Nina Forever to admire – whether it is the matter-of-fact way in which they approach decidedly off-center sexual dynamics or the practicality of blood effects or maudlin dark humor or the sweet nature of ever-challenging romance – it all works so well. So whether

Turbo Kid Movie Review, SXSW 2015
Written by Flay Otters, March 28, 2015
There is no logical, intelligent or rational way anyone could take a film like Turbo Kid and filter it down to some easy explanation. It is part Richard Stanley’s Hardware, it is part coming-of-age film, it is part 80s splatter and, lord, a dozen more. What is really is, when you get down to it,

[Exclusive Trailer] Mary Loss of Soul Wows Festivals
Written by Stephanie Joyce, November 14, 2014
Here’s an interesting concept. A fifteen year-old girl goes missing only to come back with, um, something missing. It’s just her soul, no biggie. What I liked most about watching this trailer is that it looks like every scene was meticulously lighted and choreographed. Like a heart-warming family film…only not! This film is just coming
