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

Phobia [Review]
Written by Chris Savage, October 20, 2014
A few months back we stumbled upon the highly intriguing artwork for Rory Abel’s latest feature Phobia, artwork which quickly grabbed my attention. Sadly though, the movie itself doesn’t deal with spiders, well, that’s a lie, there is one scene which is pretty out there, I won’t spoil it, but instead it deals with the

‘Flesh Computer’ Short Film Review
Written by Jason McDonald, October 19, 2014
When a film is described as being “Cronenberg-esque”, you know you’re in for some pretty messed up stuff.  Or, at least, you hope you are.  “Flesh Computer” is a short film which sets out to blend heavy philosophical concepts with icky practical effects. It’s a pairing of ideas that seems perfect for the Cronenberg comparison,

31 Days of Halloween Horror Movies 2014: Week Two Recap
Written by Goon, October 19, 2014
I’m back again with another recap of my horror viewing escapades during my 31 Days of Halloween marathon. Last week had a pretty good line up of movies that I hadn’t seen that were also relatively recent. You can check out last weeks recap right here. I always preface by saying this is by no

31 Days of Halloween Horror Movies 2014: Week One Recap
Written by Goon, October 10, 2014
It’s that time of the year again when I give up a little part of my sanity to watch 31 horror movies in 31 days. Yep, its Halloween. Last year was the roughest year I have ever had doing this. I had a lot of real life responsibilities at the time but I wasn’t going

The Pact 2 Review
Written by Jason McDonald, October 9, 2014
The first “Pact” film was originally released in 2012 and made a divisive splash in the horror community.  It didn’t garner the sort of reaction that would make you think a sequel would be in the works, but it would appear that someone thought it should have a second chance.  Does “The Pact 2″ improve

Open Windows 2014 Movie Review, Fantastic Fest
Written by Flay Otters, October 5, 2014
Spanish director Nacho Vigalondo has an interesting and wildly diverse book of business when it comes the genre films. From his bendy-twisty Timecrimes (2007) to the slight and charming Extraterrestrial (2011) to shorts in both the first ABC’s of Death (‘A is for Apocalypse’) and the newest V/H/S Viral (‘Parallel Monsters’) – Vigalondo seems to

Annabelle (2014) Movie Review
Written by Flay Otters, October 4, 2014
It is tricky to put your finger on exactly what doesn’t work, on the whole, with John R. Leonetti’s Annabelle because it isn’t one glaring issue. It isn’t the whole of the script, it isn’t the actors themselves, it isn’t the art direction (which is amazing) or the look of the film – it just kind

‘Inner Demons’ Review
Written by Jason McDonald, October 1, 2014
“Inner Demons” is the latest found footage film to take a stab at the subject of demonic possession through guerrilla filmmaking, however, this one uses a unique premise and method to portray the familiar story in a new light.   That being said, does the film manage to do more than simply have a unique hook? The

Daniel Radcliffe’s Horns Movie Review (Fantastic Fest 2014)
Written by Flay Otters, September 28, 2014
There is a confounding challenge screenwriters face when it comes to capturing the magic of the written word in the pages of a novel and channel that into a script and onto the screen. It becomes all the more tough when a novel or writer is highly thought of – such is the case with

Godzilla Review
Written by Jason McDonald, September 28, 2014
The King of Monsters is back for another round in America.  We all remember the 1998 American attempt at adapting Godzilla to the big screen.  What a glorious wreck that was.  Personally, I didn’t truly hate it, but I could see why Godzilla fans the world over were super upset about it.  So does this

Legacy of Thorn [Review]
Written by Chris Savage, September 28, 2014
As you guys are well aware, we love the indie scene. It’s where ideas are free to flourish regardless of the size of the budget, all that matters is that they have a ton of passion and a camera, and the rest should simply fall into place. Case in point is MJ Dixon. An indie

Shrew’s Nest Movie Review (Fantastic Fest 2014)
Written by Flay Otters, September 23, 2014
There is an inescapable rumbling, murmuring dread that creeps along in the undercurrent of Juanfer Andrés and Esteban Roel’s Shrew’s Nest that is so steady and so well measured that once things hit the fever-pitch, you hardly know what to do with yourself. It is something that is hard to put your finger on as

Tusk Movie Review (2014 Fantastic Fest)
Written by Flay Otters, September 21, 2014
At its heart, Kevin Smith’s Tusk is a midnight movie. The strange mad-scientist angle, the screwy body horror, the slightly blue humor of its leads – this is all midnight movie territory. And while that is cool in a way, we’ve all seen enough of those to know that you either have to go full-out,

ABC’s of Death 2 Movie Review (Fantastic Fest 2014)
Written by Flay Otters, September 21, 2014
Much like with the V/H/S series, it would be a fool’s errand to try to compare (on the whole) the first ABC’s of Death film to the newest ideration. Primarily because you have a whole new batch of directors tackling the framework and the behind the scenes folks having had the experience of making the

Circus of the Dead (2014) Review
Written by Flay Otters, September 21, 2014
If you’re an average, normal thinking person, you feel deep down that there is something inherently creepy about clowns. Given the cinematic context clues from everyone from Pennywise in IT, Captain Spaulding in House of 1000 Corpses, Stitches, the ‘Killer Klowns’ (from outer space) and hell, even that midget clown in Xtro, there is more than enough to suggest the

When Animals Dream Movie Review (2014 Fantastic Fest)
Written by Flay Otters, September 21, 2014
What is immediately and undeniably striking about Danish director Jonas Alexander Arnby’s film, When Animals Dream is the textural quality that everything in draped in right from the start. It is a wispy, muted color palette that seems to ebb and flow in a way that is deliberate and lovely but not contrived. It is

CUB (Fantastic Fest 2014) Movie Review
Written by Flay Otters, September 19, 2014
When dealing with children in peril in horror films, you come to expect a certain set of rules, a certain pathway from start to end that give us the hero, the villain, the comic foil, the human drama, the adult influence and the calming resolution. This is what we see time and time again and

Dead Snow 2 Review : The Must See Horror Film!
Written by Simon Rother, September 18, 2014
If you loved “Dead Snow”, then it’s IMPOSSIBLE for you NOT to like “Dead Snow 2: Red Vs. Dead”, directed by Tommy Wirkola (who also did the first chapter), and having been presented at Montreal’s Fantasia Film Festival. (SPOILERS IF YOU HAVEN’T SEEN THE FIRST “DEAD SNOW”.) “Red Vs. Dead” picks up where the first

All Hell Breaks Loose (Review)
Written by Chris Savage, September 15, 2014
A couple of weeks ago we got word of a little flick entitled All Hell Breaks Loose, which is a throwback to that grindhouse style. A style which has had somewhat of a resurgence these past couple of years, and of course there have been some good and some not so good. Thankfully, All Hell
