True Love Ways [Review]
Written by Chris Savage, September 25, 2016
I absolutely love it when a film comes along and it just delivers swerve after swerve. You just don’t know what to expect yet, and Mathieu Seiler has delivered with the deeply atmospheric and stylish revenge thriller True Love Ways. The film begins innocently enough with the young couple of Séverine (Anna Hausburg) and Tom (Kai Michael Müller)

[Review] ‘Ash Vs Evil Dead’ Season 2 Premiere- Hail to the King Baby
Written by Jason McDonald, September 18, 2016
Last year the most remarkable thing happened: We got an “Evil Dead” tv series and it was pretty damn good.  Who would have ever predicted that a movie series like “Evil Dead” would successfully make the jump from cinemas to the small screen and be largely faithful to the series and fans?  But with season two

[Review] ‘Blair Witch’- Is it Worth Returning to the Black Hills?
Written by Jason McDonald, September 17, 2016
Whether or not you were a fan of the original “Blair Witch” movie, there’s no denying that that film had a lasting impact on both pop culture and horror.  When we talk about these mythical “game changing” horror films, the “Blair Witch” is a film that one could easily point to and say that it had

Don’t Breath Movie Review
Written by Simon Rother, August 19, 2016
I am one of those who believe that director Fede Alvarez did a fantastic job with the remake of “Evil Dead”. He did not disappoint with his latest film, “Don’t Breathe,” which was presented in a special advanced screening at Montreal’s Fantasia International Film Festival. Rocky (Jane Levy; also starred in Alvarez’s “Evil Dead”), Alex

I am Not a Serial Killer Fantasia Review
Written by SImon Rother, August 15, 2016
Not often do you get to see legendary actor Christopher Lloyd play in a horror movie. We get this opportunity in “I Am Not a Serial Killer” which made its Canadian premiere at Montreal’s Fantasia International Film Festival. John (Max Records; “Where the Wild Things Are”, “The Sitter”) isn’t like most teenagers. Obsessed by serial

Before I Wake Fantasia Review
Written by Simon Rother, August 15, 2016
Follow your dreams. We’ve heard this motto before. But sometimes, your dreams follow you. As you know, dreams and nightmares are quite different, but “Before I Wake”, which was presented in a special advanced screening at Montreal’s Fantasia International Film Festival (with director Mike Flanagan and star actress Kate Bosworth present), will definitely confirm that

The Devils Candy Review
Written by Simon Rother, August 14, 2016
When you buy the home of your dreams, you expect some magical moments with your family: not to have a deranged, former occupant attempt to invade your home and dismantle everyone in his path. This occurs in “The Devil’s Candy” which made its Quebec premiere at Montreal’s Fantasia International Film Festival. Jesse (Ethan Embry; “Late

Viral Review
Written by Jason McDonald, August 2, 2016
Directors Henry Joost and Ariel Schulman have had an interesting roller coaster career thus far.  Their first major success, “Catfish”, was a weirdly intense entry that put them on the map.  Then they followed it up with perhaps the best “Paranormal Activity” film, number 3, and then the worst, number 4.  But then their most recent

Too Young to Die Review
Written by Simon Rother, August 1, 2016
It had been a long time that I hadn’t gone through a range of emotions and had so much fun while watching a movie. I got to fulfill such an exciting experience while viewing “Too Young To Die!” straight out of Japan, which made its Canadian premiere at Montreal’s Fantasia International Film Festival. Daisuke has

Review: Kevin Smith’s Yoga Hosers
Written by Simon Rother, August 1, 2016
Kevin Smith’s directing work is adored by some; disliked by others. His newest film, “Yoga Hosers,” made its Canadian premiere at Montreal’s Fantasia Film Festival, and even though Kevin Smith was there in person and went on for about an hour before the screening of his movie in a very entertaining monologue, I was disappointed

Movie Review: James Wan’s Lights Out
Written by Simon Rother, July 24, 2016
Many us were very afraid of the dark as kids, and some of us still are. With “Lights Out” being presented in a special advanced screening at Montreal’s Fantasia International Film Festival, some of us may begin to be anxious within the shadows. Rebecca (Teresa Palmer; “Warm Bodies”; “I Am Number Four”) has moved away

Documentary: Beware the Slenderman Review
Written by Simon Rother, July 24, 2016
Slenderman. This urban legend has inspired numerous creepy stories, legends, and videos online. As most of these seem obvious that they are fictitious, they may not be to everyone. A horrible crime occurred in 2014, caused by this sinister character, and “Beware the Slenderman,”a documentary that made its Quebec premiere at Montreal’s Fantasia International Film

Antibirth Movie Review
Written by Simon Rother, July 23, 2016
Sometimes, life just takes you by surprise. And I suppose you might not even feel surprised if you’re drunk and high. Discover the feeling of an unprepared and mishandled pregnancy, which may just hide something more, in “Antibirth”, making its Canadian premiere at Montrea’s Fantasia International Film Festival. Lou (Natasha Lyonne; “American Pie”) lives life

[REVIEW] You Should Be Watching ‘Stranger Things’ on Netflix Right Now
Written by Jason McDonald, July 17, 2016
This isn’t exactly a formal review, but I felt like I just wanted to get the word out there about this fantastic new series currently available on Netflix.  I’m only halfway through it, but I felt like I’ve seen enough to know that a great deal of you would want to hear about this show

Der Bunker [Review]
Written by Chris Savage, July 13, 2016
Just when you think you’ve seen it all, along comes this little gem which slaps you around the face, pulls your twisted carcass in, and then spews you out more deranged than before. Der Bunker is brilliant, fascinating and utterly bizarre, yet it has this strange warming charm about it. Anyway, the German-language movie is Nikias Chryssos’ feature debut and

Stag Night of the Dead DVD Review
Written by Sam, July 8, 2016
The Film This micro budget British effort shows us a UK that has survived a pandemic that turned people into zombies (a fact that seems to have been well hidden from the population at large). Rather than attempt a serious take on this idea writer/director Neil ‘Napoleon’ Jones throws us in with a group of

The Perfect Husband [Review]
Written by Chris Savage, July 1, 2016
Going into Lucas Pavetto’s The Perfect Husband, I initially thought it was just another run-of-the-mill horror flick in a secluded cabin, but there is much more than meets the eye with this one. It has several layers that slowly begin to peel away until you get to its rotten core, and that core might be a

[REVIEW] ‘Terrordactyl’ Creature Feature Fun Takes Flight
Written by Jason McDonald, June 22, 2016
I don’t know what it is about the summer season, but when the world erupts into flames like the intro of “Terminator 2” and I’m forced to wear tank tops and flip flops, I’m suddenly in the mood for creature feature fun.  And arriving just in time for fit that need is ‘Terrordactyl’, a tale of

Written by Jason McDonald, June 14, 2016
After taking a quick break from horror to direct “Furious 7”, James Wan returns to the genre with a sequel to the hugely successful 2013 film “The Conjuring.”  With the “The Conjuring 2”, Wan has gathered the band back together with the hopes of repeating the critical and financial success the first one enjoyed.  But
