The Haunting of Helena -Movie Review
Written by Chris Egan, Posted 144 Days Ago. | 10 Comments
With yet another “polar vortex” ravaging most of the country with terribly cold days, there’s a good chance some of us will be looking to stay in-doors with a horror flick. Here’s one that was just added to Netflix’s streaming service. The Haunting of Helena tells the story of a little girl living with her [...]

Cabin Fever: Patient Zero – Movie Review
Written by Chris Egan, Posted 144 Days Ago. | 2 Comments
The first of two Cabin Fever sequels, both (supposedly) planned to be released this year, is Cabin Fever: Patient Zero, aka Cabin Fever 3. This is a strange time for such a plan for a franchise that has mixed reviews at best. It has been 11 years since Eli Roth’s original which focused heavily on [...]

[Book Review] Snowpiercer Vol. 2 – The Explorers
Written by Chris Savage, Posted 159 Days Ago. | No Comments
With the big-screen adaptation of Snowpiercer set to finally hit the U.S. hopefully very soon. The wonderful folks over at Titan Comics are unleashing the original graphic novel in English for the very first time, and it is nothing short of awesome. It has been a great ride, and thankfully I was lucky to check [...]

[Review] Jennifer Campbell’s Bruised
Written by Chris Savage, Posted 168 Days Ago. | 2 Comments
In this day and age, we are unfortunately inundated with remakes, but it’s nothing new. Remakes have been a part of the genre since as far back as I can remember, but with so many remakes in such a short period of time I often hear people questioning, “Where’s the originality? Where’s the creativity?” It [...]

Deadly Weekend aka Zellwood, follows two couples taking their last vacation together before graduating college. They take a road trip down to Zellwood, Florida to enjoy camping, fan-boat rides and whatever else four college students would do in the swampy woods of Florida. During the opening credits we are shown some crime statistics about Zellwood [...]

Nurse 3D Movie Review
Written by Chris Egan, Posted 170 Days Ago. | 1 Comment
I went into Nurse 3D knowing very little about it other than it being about a killer nurse. I expected a standard slasher flick and happily got way more than that. Abby Russell is a dedicated nurse, in all aspects of her life. By day she is a well-liked and hard working nurse at a [...]

Grand Piano Movie Review
Written by Flay Otters, Posted 172 Days Ago. | 5 Comments
The nail-biting tension of a thriller will only go so far as the premise on which it is built. In some cases the setup is just too much to comprehend as plausible (see Untraceable) and any and all tension just feels fake and ultimately silly. A good portion of the time, however, the framing of [...]

Resolution Horror Review
Written by Shaun Huhn (CineNiche), Posted 174 Days Ago. | 2 Comments
Ambiguity abounds in Justin Benson and Aaron Moorehead’s Resolution. This low-budget drama horror leaves you with questions you may never have an answer to. I belong to the camp that believes this to be a good thing. This article may dive into the spoiler zone, but how much can you give away about a film [...]

Battle of the Damned Movie Review
Written by Chris Egan, Posted 174 Days Ago. | 2 Comments
In various southeast Asian countries different corporations are able to work on projects that their home countries would frown upon. At some point in the near future one such project is accidentally released during its production; a lethal pathogen that basically turns people into zombies. This region of the Earth is cut off from the [...]

Forgetting The Girl (2013) Review
Written by Flay Otters, Posted 180 Days Ago. | 1 Comment
While not a traditional horror film, or really a traditional thriller either, Forgetting The Girl is a stick-on-your-ribs kind of thing that is impressive in both its slight style and bold choices. First time director Nate Taylor balances these two extremes pretty darned well and takes advantage of the endearing nature of his lead (the [...]

Raze Movie Review
Written by Christopher Horton, Posted 182 Days Ago. | 4 Comments
“Raze” was one of those films that I didn’t know a whole lot about, and I wasn’t exactly jumping for joy about seeing it. But I had heard of it, and decided to give it a shot. Man, was I in for a surprise. “Raze” begins with a girl in a bar, being wooed by [...]

I, Frankenstein (2014) review
Written by Flay Otters, Posted 186 Days Ago. | 11 Comments
It is not a stretch to say that Stuart Beattie’s I, Frankenstein has about as much to do with Mary Shelley’s original as the finest Petits fours produced by a scratch bakery have to do with Twinkies. The film does not suffer from a lack of interesting ideas because it has them in spades. The [...]

Dead of the Nite Movie Review
Written by Chris Egan, Posted 186 Days Ago. | 1 Comment
I am always on the lookout for something spooky to watch and like many out there I love finding little unknown gems. I was hopeful that Dead of the Nite would be one such gem, knowing that Tony Todd was in it. The film picks up the day after a ghost hunting expedition goes horribly [...]

Devil’s Due Review
Written by Jason McDonald, Posted 191 Days Ago. | 31 Comments
  “Devil’s Due” hit theaters last Friday with all the impact of a pillow hitting a brick house.  There doesn’t seem to be much fanfare or interest surrounding this movie, which is a rare occurrence when a found footage film gets a theatrical release.  Is this some sort of weird fluke or did “Devil’s Due” deserve [...]

[Book Review] Snowpiercer: The Escape
Written by Chris Savage, Posted 193 Days Ago. | No Comments
Let this be a lesson for many of you, especially if you’re like myself. Please go check out the original works from which many movies are based upon. Whether its a short, a novel or a comic, they harbor such treasures that a film may not be able to put to screen and it’s just [...]

Mischief Night (2013) Review
Written by Flay Otters, Posted 193 Days Ago. | 2 Comments
There is a spark of interesting and creative execution that bubbles up to the surface of Mischief Night every now and again but by and large it is an exercise in boredom and frustration through the bulk of its runtime. The film sports an interesting lead (Noell Coet) with an interesting problem (psychosomatic blindness stemming [...]

Being Human Season 4 Premiere Review!
Written by Chris Egan, Posted 196 Days Ago. | 6 Comments
Beware, some minor spoilers ahead! Season 4 of Being Human picks up with the multiple cliffhanger that left fans hanging and begging for more at the end of last season. Aidan let his werewolf-blood infected progeny, Kenny, run away rather than killing him like he should have. Josh is a werewolf again and after going [...]

Written by Chris Egan, Posted 196 Days Ago. | 6 Comments
Lucy and Wade are a young, happily married couple. They both have good careers, a new home and a new baby. Lucy helps abused women and children and Wade does something great too, I guess. You never really find out what he does, but their house is super modern so it must be something that [...]

New on DVD : You’re Next Movie Review
Written by Flay Otters, Posted 196 Days Ago. | 37 Comments
Damn. That is the only word I can think to start this write up with, having wrestled with various other combinations of colorful descriptive and expletives but ultimately deciding any I concocted didn’t cut the proverbial mustard. So, damn it is. The next thing I think is important to note from the start is that I [...]
