Today I’m starting a new segment called “Short Reviews for Short Films”, which is pretty self-explanatory. For my first review I watched the short film The Shed, from Infested Films honchos Scott Dawson and David Sherbrook. For those of you who might have missed it, these two gentlemen, along with Sean Canfield, also directed the horror anthology Dead on Appraisal, which I had previously reviewed some time back. Feel free to click here if you missed that one. Right now though, let’s talk some about The Shed. Continue reading

Hello again, you awesome creatures. You know, I don’t know what it is about movies that take place in the past that I enjoy so much. My theory, however, is that because I have such a growing disdain for humanity these days, it’s nice to watch something that takes place in a time when things were simpler and there was none of the garbage we’re almost constantly exposed to on television, radio and the internet. In this case, I’m talking about the new Guillermo Del Toro film Crimson Peak. I didn’t have very high hopes going into it, due to my not being very impressed by the trailer. So let’s go over it and see what the end result was. Continue reading

The Indie horror scene is a tricky one. While it seems sometimes that it’s the last bastion of originality compared to what Hollywood churns out nowadays, Indie horror can still be hit or miss on occasion. But the gems that I do find keep me optimistic for the future of horror. Today, I’ll be talking about The Purgation, a movie that had an Indiegogo campaign that ended in early 2014. It unfortunately didn’t meet its goal, but it was a flexible funding campaign, and production went through nevertheless. Special thanks go out to Director Elaine Chu, who was gracious enough to provide a screener so I can inform you good people about The Purgation. So without further ado, let’s begin. Continue reading

Ah, the dream of owning your own bed and breakfast. If you’re a people person who doesn’t want to work for “the man”, such an opportunity might be right up your alley. However, you may want to do some research into the history of the house, or it might cost you your life and/or sanity. Such is the case for Jessica and Dan, the main characters in today’s movie I’m reviewing, The Inhabitants. Special thanks go out to Shawn and Michael Rasmussen for giving me the opportunity to watch and review their latest directorial effort. Shall we begin? Continue reading

In a world where reboots and remakes are popping up like weeds, it’s nice to go to an alternative that tries its best to be something original. In this case, I’m talking about the 2009 horror The Sky Has Fallen. Its been a while since I watched something with a post-apocalyptic aspect (no, I haven’t seen the latest Mad Max yet, I’ll get around to it in time), and the director Doug Roos was kind enough to hook me up with a look at his endeavor, so thanks go out to him.
