The Green Inferno Review
Written by Jason McDonald, September 24, 2015
Before “The Green Inferno” made its LA debut at AFI Fest, director Eli Roth came on stage and asked us to clear our minds of any preconceived notions we might have had of the film.  The idea was to cleanse ourselves of any assumptions that might have been made in lieu of marketing or advertisement. I did

Eli Roth’s Green Inferno Movie Review
Written by Simon Rother, September 24, 2015
It is a huge shame that there are complications with the theatrical release of “The Green Inferno” because this enormous, raging ball of fire should be seen for those avid horror fans who wish to see a hardcore, intense movie on the big screen. It made its Quebec premiere at Montreal’s Fantasia Film Festival and

‘Scream Queens’ Pilot Episode Review
Written by Jason McDonald, September 20, 2015
The minds behind “Glee” and “American Horror Story” are putting together their love of mayhem and irreverent humor for a brand new series that looks to take a stab at the slasher genre.  Is “Scream Queens” the best of both worlds or does it fail to balance humor with horror? “Scream Queens” features an ensemble

Written by Chris Savage, September 20, 2015
One of the best things about the horror genre is that it is absolutely filled with some truly awesome talent, that is screaming to be seen. Case in-point; Cindy Maples. This wonderful actress has starred in a slew of movies, shorts and TV shows, throughout the years. But it gives me great pleasure to introduce you

Dark (2015) [Review]
Written by Chris Savage, September 2, 2015
If you were one of the many people who helped fund Nick Basile’s feature-length debut Dark, like myself, you’ll be very pleased to know that this one was definitely worth the investment. Watching Dark, you’d have a hard time believing this was Basile’s first feature film, since this one is shot with such precision that many

Until Dawn Review- You’ll Be Up All Night
Written by Jason McDonald, August 29, 2015
“Until Dawn” has had a long history with the Playstation.  Originally the game was supposed to release during the Playstation 3 era and be a Playstation Move exclusive.  Thankfully, that didn’t come to pass. Just last year Sony revealed that the game was still alive and would finally be coming out on the PS4 as

Fear the Walking Dead ‘Pilot’ Episode Review- What’d You Think?
Written by Jason McDonald, August 24, 2015
After striking undead gold with the first “Walking Dead” series, AMC set off to find a way to capitalize on that success and double down on it.  Thus a new series was born.  A series that, having been unburdened by the comic book series that spawned the original show, could explore any number of infinite

The Taking Movie Review
Written by Simon Rother, August 14, 2015
When you have no expectations going into a movie, especially an independent, small film, you may sometimes be pleasantly surprised. I certainly was when “The Taking”, straight out of the UK, made its International premiere at Montreal’s Fantasia International Film Festival. Bex and Dawn work in a small café within a big, indoor market. They

The Invitation Horror Movie Review
Written by Simon Rother, August 9, 2015
Character-driven. Tense. Discomforting. Solid storyline. Insane acting. These are only a few of the many terms I would use to describe the sensational “The Invitation” which made its Canadian premiere at Montreal’s International Film Festival. You need to watch this film. This is the second glowing review that this film has received the first coming

Nina Forever Horror Movie Review
Written by Simon Rother, August 9, 2015
What if your spouse tragically died in an accident? What if you tried to move on with your life, and every time you’d engage in sexual encounters, your deceased loved one ghoulishly clawed her/his way through the bed sheets, gory and bloody, to discuss how you are still theirs? Sounds odd, but it somehow harmoniously

Goodnight Mommy Fantasia Movie Review
Written by Simon Rother, August 9, 2015
When you’re 9 years old and your mother is not acting like who she usually is, it can be terrifying. This is what Lukas and Elias experience in the Austrian film “Goodnight Mommy”, making its Quebec premiere at Fantasia International Film Festival. Lukas and Elias are twin brothers who live in a beautiful, secluded home

The Editor Horror Movie Review
Written by Simon Rother, August 8, 2015
I love when a horror movie doesn’t take itself too seriously. When it is combined to an Italian-style, murder-solving, 70s-looking extravaganza, you know you’ll be in for a riot. “The Editor” is just this riot as it made its Quebec premiere at the 2015 edition of Fantasia International Film Festival. Rey Ciso (Adam Brooks; “Father’s

Excess Flesh Horror Movie Review
Written by Simon Rother, August 8, 2015
Jealousy can drive you insane. It can drive you to do things you never thought you’d be able to do. If you’re jealous of someone you live with, in addition to this person being a complete bitch, then that can make your life a living Hell. This is what occurs in “Excess Flesh”, having made

They Look Like People Horror Movie Review
Written by Simon Rother, August 8, 2015
The world can be a scary place. It is double the terror when you are receiving anonymous phone calls, telling you that the people surrounding you are not really human and that a life-threatening war is about to occur. We discover how it feels in “They Look Like People” which made its International premiere out

Jeruzalem (2015) Horror Movie Review
Written by Simon Rother, August 4, 2015
“There are 3 gates to Hell: one in the desert; one in the ocean; and one in Jerusalem.” “Jeruzalem” is the latest found footage flick from Yoav & Doron Paz, from Israel, making its world premiere at Montreal’s Fantasia International Film Festival. Prior to two American girls’ departure for Israel, one of them receives a

Observance (2015) Movie Review
Written by Simon Rother, August 4, 2015
When a movie doesn’t tell you much about what is going on halfway through the film, it sometimes unfolds into an eye-opening experience that has you saying: “Ohhh! So that’s why this happened!” and allows the viewer to discover the twists and turns on his or her own. Unfortunately, the Australian filmed-with-North-American-accents flick “Observance” is

Extinction (2015) Movie Review
Written by Simon Rother, August 3, 2015
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. The post-apocalyptic “Extinction” made its world premiere at Montreal’s Fantasia International Film Festival. Nine years have passed since a virus has turned practically

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
