Written by Flay Otters, Posted 815 Days Ago. | 5 Comments
I’ve been gestating on Franck Khalfoun’s Maniac since last week when I saw the film with a packed crowd at Texas Frightmare Weekend on Saturday evening. Prior to the screening, I rewatched the 1980 William Lustig/Joe Spinnell original and now that I’ve had some time to stew, I don’t know if that was the best idea after all. [...]

Texas Frightmare Weekend: Byzantium (2012) Review
Written by Flay Otters, Posted 815 Days Ago. | No Comments
In the post-age of the Twilight films, it is tricky business to venture into vampire mythology without running the risk of having tomatoes thrown in your direction. Gone are the days of Cronos and Near Dark and Nosferatu and lately we’ve instead been bombarded with the slug of vapid, shallow Twilight films strewn with emotionally [...]

Texas Frightmare Weekend: Scream Park Review
Written by Flay Otters, Posted 822 Days Ago. | No Comments
The midnight screening at Texas Frightmare last night was the often goofy, 80’s throwback Scream Park. While far from perfect (seemingly deliberatley so), the film is a bit of fun romp through the standard clichés’ of teenage slasher fare that left me chuckling and grinning as it ran its credits. Thankfully, the film is not [...]
