RED EYE

If you're of the mindset that art - effective art - is characterized by its ability to make those who observe it, thoroughly uncomfortable, then Tristan Clay and Destinie Orndoff, mission accomplished!

ALYCE KILLS

Alyce Kills is a twisted tale that manages to spiral out of complete and utter control the deeper you delve. And possibly it might just tell the story of our beloved Alice in Wonderland, and how she takes on all the characters in her own personal twisted version of Wonderhell

STIRRING

Troy Escamilla has developed something of a trademark style. Beginning with Party Night, an emphasis on the gruesomely gory deaths as a sort of money shot, carries over to greater effect in this, his gleefully violent tribute to holiday horror.

Neverknock

Maybe I'm just too old for these teeny bopper wannabe horror movies, which try to live up to some sort of expectation, set by no one. Jury's still out on that. One thing's for sure; Neverknock?

More like never watch.

M.F.A.

So color me surprised to find that Natalia Leite's particular entry, while patterning some of its narrative against this familiar beat, spends a lot more of its time examining the parts of "rape-revenge" that aren't as easily glamorized. This is easily MFA's greatest strength

DEATH ON SCENIC DRIVE

...all the things I knew the film would deliver on, never materialized. So let me just cut right to the chase and say that, putting it lightly, this simply didn't do it for me at all

SPIDARLINGS

Spidarlings has plenty to say with regards to the male gaze, female oppression, and the sad necessity to compromise one's self in order to survive, but a lot of the impact and poignancy is dulled by the film's many technical and directional problems. I say give it a shot anyway, despite the problems, if not just for the sake of experiencing a fairly unique Troma film, one scored with some incredibly catchy tunes.

CANNIBALS & CARPET FITTERS

From performances to visual effects work, down to the script itself, I'm thoroughly impressed with what was accomplished here... ...Cannibals & Carpet Fitters is an exceedingly competent, humorously violent homage to the kind of horror films that give the genre its wide-appealing charm; in short, a bloody-good time.

MURDER MADE EASY

Much like the aforementioned board game, a lot of what gives Murder Made Easy its charm are the colorful personalities involved in the sordid affair. While Professor Plum and Miss Scarlet don't necessarily make an appearance, you still get some close approximations and enough variety to simulate the dynamic they would bring.

THE FOLLOWER

If you're looking for a spooky little tale, one which finds itself sitting in-between sub-genres, perhaps give The Follower a shot. It isn't perfect by any stretch of the imagination, but it still has enough moxie to provide a satisfyingly creepy romp.

MAN DOG MAN

Man Dog Man is a hilariously grim eleven-minute romp that hints at some of the lengths Condo is willing to go in order to tell his story, this being an indication of what we'll get from the budding director, there's good reason to get excited...

...you’re in for a darkly comedic dogie treat.

PLACEBO

"Placebo", is a substance/treatment with no active effect. Sometimes it is given in order to deceive the patient into thinking that it's actually working; this is called the "placebo effect", which in Latin means, "I shall please".
