Raze Review
Written by Jason McDonald, Posted 201 Days Ago. | 14 Comments
“Raze” is one of those films that I feel like I’ve been hearing about for a long time now.  Since its world premiere at the 2013 Tribeca Festival, a quiet anticipation for “Raze” has been slowly gestating in the dark crevices of my brain.  Unfortunately, I had forgotten all about it until an email notified me [...]

Haunter Movie Review
Written by Chris Egan, Posted 205 Days Ago. | 5 Comments
I’m really glad I went into Vincenzo Natali’s Haunter knowing basically nothing about it and I think it made for a much more enjoyable experience. All I knew was that it starred Abigail Breslin and had something to do with ghosts. Not knowing anything about the movie really allowed me to flow along with the [...]

Here Comes The Devil (2012) review
Written by Flay Otters, Posted 205 Days Ago. | 6 Comments
What might seem like a stock-standard demonic possession film from the outside, Here Comes The Devil is a much different thing once you’re into it. Director Adrián García Bogliano weaves a fairy simple story from the onset but delves into unexpected, more complex and darker territory as things progress and the feeling you’re left with [...]

The Following Season Two Review
Written by Jason McDonald, Posted 207 Days Ago. | 4 Comments
This review contains spoilers for the first season of “The Following.” However, it does not contain spoilers for the second season.  If you want to catch up on the first season it’s currently available for streaming on Netflix.  Otherwise, you’ve been warned! The Following is back and, after the shocking finale of season one, it [...]

New on Netflix : Stitches Movie Review
Written by Ash, Posted 209 Days Ago. | 26 Comments
There are not enough horror films being made with psychotic clowns. Fact. It’s strange how clowns have an unsettling effect on so many of us yet are not utilised nearly enough in film. Growing up in the 80’s I can remember three movies with clowns that affected my perception of those that are supposed to spread joy. Clownhouse and [...]

New on Netflix Instant: Sightseers Film Review
Written by Ash, Posted 210 Days Ago. | 1 Comment
British film writer & director Ben Wheatley is probably best known for the love it or hate it head-fuck that is The Kill List. Revelling in its ambiguity, The Kill List left some viewers cold and perplexed. His follow up film Sightseers has a much more linear narrative structure and is all the better for it. It also happens [...]

New On Netflix Instant: All the Boys Love Mandy Lane Review
Written by Justin Haaksma, Posted 210 Days Ago. | 39 Comments
When you see a movie at a premiere screening sometimes you dont know what you are gonna get. I think its a great way to see a movie because there are no other opinions or reviews to get in your head and change the experience and you see the film for what it is, good [...]

New On Netflix Instant: Pathology Review
Written by Serena, Posted 210 Days Ago. | 15 Comments
For several months, I had been anticipating the theatrical release of Pathology, a movie which got majority of its buzz created through the net. Going into the screening, I thought I was prepared for the gratuitous sex and violence that would shine onscreen, (considering it was penned by the Neveldine/Taylor team, the guys who brought [...]

Paranormal Activity: The Marked Ones (2013) Review
Written by Flay Otters, Posted 210 Days Ago. | 5 Comments
The Paranormal Activity series really boils down to, in my mind, the concessions afforded by the viewer to each film for the gaps in logic and reliance on spook-house gimmicks to scare the audience. On the first item, if you watch enough horror movies (of all types) you get to a point where you often [...]

Magic Magic Movie Review
Written by Simon Rother, Posted 214 Days Ago. | 15 Comments
The excellent Michael Cera (“Superbad”; “Scott Pilgrim Vs. the World”) stars in Sebastián Silva’s suspense film, “Magic Magic”. He plays an unbelievable role in this movie, but it doesn’t live up to his great acting. Alicia (Juno Temple; “The Dark Knight Rises”; “Killer Joe”) moves to Chili to join her cousin. However, things turn sour [...]

Bad Milo Movie Review
Written by Chris Egan, Posted 214 Days Ago. | No Comments
With the bluray of Magnolia Films’ low-budget creature feature Bad Milo being released on January 21st; I thought it would be a good time to do a refresher review for the many that did not see it during its limited theatrical run. I never thought I’d enjoy a movie about a demon that lives in [...]

Paranormal Activity: The Marked Ones Review
Written by Jason McDonald, Posted 214 Days Ago. | 17 Comments
This past year was noticeably light on the paranormal activity. Instead of receiving our annual dose of ghostly shenanigans around Halloween, Paramount opted to skip a year and deliver a double shot of “Paranormal Activity” in 2014.  First up is “Paranormal Activity: The Marked Ones” which comes out this January.  Has the year away made [...]

The Adventures of the Amazing Living Corpse Review
Written by Chris Egan, Posted 215 Days Ago. | No Comments
Being familiar with “The Living Corpse” comic book I was interested in checking this out. I thought an R-rated animated flick based on the comic would be a great addition to the property if done right. Key words being “if done right.” Now, not being an insane fan who knows all the ins and outs [...]

Antisocial (2013) Review
Written by Flay Otters, Posted 218 Days Ago. | 2 Comments
When you’re dealing with technology in a horror film (or darn near any other genre’ for that matter), you’re destined to date yourself at some point down the line. Today’s cutting-edge technology is tomorrow’s Atari 2600; once you put it on film, it stays there. That doesn’t mean that film displaying dated technology is doomed, [...]

Open Grave (2013) Movie Review
Written by Herner Klenthur, Posted 218 Days Ago. | 9 Comments
Open Grave is  a movie that has just landed on video on demand with a lot of buzz from die-hard genre fans like myself. Typically when movies like this get released with a lot of underground attention from bloggers they end up being a big disappointment. In my completely spoiler free review I will clear [...]

Toad Road (2013) Review
Written by Flay Otters, Posted 219 Days Ago. | 2 Comments
Every once in a while, you come across a film that you would have a hell of a time explaining and/or describing to others. Such is the case with Jason Banker’s Toad Road which is, by and large, two separate films. One the one side, a dark and dirty look at the hopelessness and pathetic [...]

Ghost Team One (2013) Review
Written by Flay Otters, Posted 219 Days Ago. | 3 Comments
There are not of lot of things right about a horror-comedy film when the horror is uninspired and unoriginal and the comedy is mildly amusing at best and outright offensive at worst. Generally speaking, you want at least one of those two things to work to at least cover up for the other one but [...]

The Walking Dead Season 2: All that Remains Review
Written by Jason McDonald, Posted 226 Days Ago. | 10 Comments
Telltale’s “The Walking Dead” is back with a brand new season filled with hard choices and even harder consequences.  I should start off by saying that this review won’t have spoilers for the first episode of season two, but it might contain spoilers for season one.  I hope you remember that. Season one of Telltale’s [...]

Ils (Them) Movie Review
Written by Christopher Horton, Posted 238 Days Ago. | 7 Comments
I have already prepared myself for the onslaught of negativity that will come with my opinion of this film.  I sat in my living room floor, cross legged, chanting a mantra: ” I will not care what people on the internet say”…. I am writing in a Zen state. Do your worst, internet. I can [...]

Sennentuntschi: Curse of the Alps review
Written by Flay Otters, Posted 240 Days Ago. | 1 Comment
After watching a film like Sennentuntschi: Curse Of The Alps (full title, although I care much more for just the first word as the title), one has to wonder why more genre/horror films don’t come out of Switzerland. Because beyond some narrative confusion at points, director Michael Steiner’s Sennentuntschi is a brilliant bit of folklore [...]
