The Dooms Chapel Horror (2015) [Review]
Written by Shaun Huhn (CineNiche), March 16, 2015
To become a horror filmmaker, like any kind of filmmaker, one must first construct an innovative narrative. It all begins with words on a page. From there it takes preparation, dedication, and pure passion. Making films today (in comparison to the past) is only easier in the sense that technology is more accessible. Even with

The House On Pine Street (2015) Review
Written by Shaun Huhn (CineNiche), March 9, 2015
  “No live organism can continue for long to exist sanely under the conditions of absolute reality.”  Shirley Jackson, The Haunting of Hill House 1959 In 1963 Robert Wise created the perfect haunted house film. In The Haunting, Eleanor Lance (Julie Harris) is a woman with a troubled past. From the film’s beginning we know

Clown [Review]
Written by Shaun Huhn (CineNiche), March 7, 2015
I’m a huge fan, but regardless of how you feel about Eli Roth, Clown proves the director has a sense of humor. The production for the film began in the strangest of places, through a faux trailer. Since Grindhouse (2007) it is not that unlikely that a film’s production would begin with a fake trailer. Robert Rodriguez

Wyrmwood: Road of the Dead Review
Written by Shaun Huhn (CineNiche), February 27, 2015
I feel late to the party on this one. With some films, you’re the first guest to arrive, and its cool to see how the festivities are created. And then sometimes you’re right on time when the bash is in full swing. In this instance I feel like the friend you gloat to the next

Headless [Review]
Written by Chris Savage, February 24, 2015
A few years back I witnessed a little indie film entitled Found, which was directed by Scott Schirmer and written by Todd Rigney. Since witnessing the film I’ve been praising it to the high heavens. It was a beautifully crafted yet eerie and somewhat sadistic film that I instantly fell in love with. It has stayed

Digging Up the Marrow Review
Written by Jason McDonald, February 21, 2015
After a week long tour through America “Digging Up the Marrow” has come to roost in Los Angeles.  However, if you aren’t near the City of Angels you can also find Adam Green’s latest feature streaming on various VOD services.  A service that I gratefully took advantage of because, damn, do I hate driving to Los

El Gigante [Review]
Written by Chris Savage, February 11, 2015
A few months back we received a trailer for a short film entitled El Gigante, which is directed by Gigi Saul Guerrero, produced by Luchagore Productions and based upon Shane McKenzie’s novel Muerte Con Carne. Being a huge wrestling fan and from that small tease I was salivating all over my monitor, but I had no

Alien Outpost Review
Written by Jason McDonald, January 31, 2015
Aliens and mockumentaries have generally been an interesting combination.  I’ve either found them to be absolutely terrifying, like “Incident in Lake County”, or entertaining set pieces like “District 9.”  The latest film to combine the two is “Alien Outpost.”  Does it successfully build a narrative based on “real life” events or does the facade fail

Beaster Day: Here Comes Peter CottonHell [Review]
Written by Chris Savage, January 21, 2015
If there is one thing the genre needs it’s more killer rabbit movies. I mean, I’m struggling to think of any besides Night of the Lepus and Easter Bunny Kill! Kill!, it’s definitely something we need more of. So, it appears as if The Snygg Brothers have heard their calling as they have unleashed a giant

[Book Review] ‘in Sanity, AZ’ Will Leave You In Stitches
Written by Stephanie Joyce, January 15, 2015
After attending a most awesome first annual Phoenix ComiCon Fan Fest in Phoenix, AZ  I got deathly sick with whatever killer flu bug that’s been going around, but I had the chance to read an anthology that really highlights…em… the natural beauty that is Arizona. What I really enjoyed about Fan Fest is that it

REC 4: Apocalypse (2015) review
Written by Flay Otters, January 2, 2015
There are two ways to take Jaume Balagueró’s film, REC 4, the final installment of the REC franchise. You can take it as a zombie/infection thriller film on its own merits, or, you can take it only as a part of the grander REC story. As its own film, it is a pretty entertaining and a

A Grim Becoming [Review]
Written by Chris Savage, November 18, 2014
After months and months of hyping up Adam R. Steigert’s A Grim Becoming, I was fortunate enough to witness what he has crafted for the screen, and thankfully I was not disappointed. From the get go we knew that this one was going to be something else, I mean, A Grim Becoming, stars some of

Alien: Isolation PS4 Review
Written by Jason McDonald, November 16, 2014
After the mess that was “Aliens: Colonial Marines”, many fans of the “Alien” franchise were left bitter and resentful over Sega’s handling of the series.  So when word came soon after the release of “Colonial Marines” that Sega was working on another game, people were starting to sharpen their pitchforks and light their torches.  Is “Alien: Isolation” a turning

The Creepiest Kind Of Creep
Written by Shaun Huhn, November 9, 2014

Slender: The Arrival PS3 Review
Written by Jason McDonald, November 2, 2014
Apologies are in order for this one. I had quite a few technical difficulties as of late that kept me from reviewing a few games on time. As such I have a backlog of reviews incoming that include “Alien Isolation” and “The Evil Within.”  However, this review will be for a game that has also

The Town That Dreaded Sundown Movie Review
Written by Matthew McPhee, November 2, 2014
In what’s arguably the best slasher remake ever made, The Town That Dreaded Sundown stands apart more as a companion piece to the 1976 horror docudrama of the same name. The film revolves around the small Texarkana town, which screens The Town That Dreaded Sundown every Halloween to pay tribute to the “Moonlight Murders” that shook

[Comic Review] Image’s “Nailbiter” Chronicles Town Full of Serial Killers
Written by Stephanie Joyce, October 29, 2014
With taglines like “Congratulations, It’s a Serial Killer,” who wouldn’t be intrigued with the ideas behind one of Image’s latest projects, Nailbiter. One of the most haunting and original tales I’ve have read all year, this comic is already on the sixth issue and I already have so much to comment on. But before we

[Review] The 13th Unit Makes You Feel Claustrophobic
Written by Stephanie Joyce, October 23, 2014
If you like well-made, low-budget horror flicks, you may have found your next title to add to your Halloween line-up. The 13th Unit does boast having good actors, music, camera-work and editing and most critics say it’s good for the little horror film it is. But what got me into watching it more than anything

Wolves Movie Review
Written by Matthew McPhee, October 20, 2014
The werewolf lore has be rewritten so many times in film land that the conventional full moon, silver bullet and the inability to suppress animalistic instinct after transforming into a savage beast sometimes get thrown out the window. And that’s exactly what writer/director David Hayter did with his latest film, Wolves, as the titular creatures
