...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 allRead More
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.Read More
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.Read More
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.Read More
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.Read More
...the rate at which Found Footage 3D accelerates itself into the territory of blood, guts and dread is so rapid, that you're given absolutely no time to prepare; with the time spent in these moments all but ensuring no chance to compose yourself either.Read More
The Babysitter has that 80's kind of retro feel to it, so if you're one of those who happen to love films like, All Cheerleaders Die, and perhaps are looking forward to the similarly styled Death Day and Tragedy Girls, you are without a doubt going to enjoy this; a guaranteed bloody-fun time.Read More
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.Read More
"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".Read More
...it's the realistic setup, which leads to very realistic misfortune - misfortune that COULD have been avoided - that allows these 6 minutes to have as much an impact as something telling the same story, in 90Read More
...you have in Elliot a profoundly gut wrenching journey that's deeply affecting. Be prepared to run through the gamut of emotion, and in turn, experience disgust, fear, hope, and crushing despairRead More
We really can’t recommend this enough, and for horror fans who are lucky to have the opportunity to attend any of the festivals this is playing at, DON'T MISS IT.Read More
Two band mates stuck serving coffee on Halloween need to kill time before their biggest show yet. Too bad for them time isn't the only thing being killed.
Director: Topher Hansson
Writer: Topher Hansson
Stars: Kati McCarron, Topher Hansson, Bérénice Achille
For the most part, each "kill" offers up something hilariously unique about it that you can't help but either gawk in astonishment or laugh in disbelief. I won't give them away, but the hammy performances of those meeting their demise, lend the perfect flavor to what would (should?) otherwise be disturbing acts of violenceRead More
There's a very recognizeable common thread that binds George James Fraser's recent work together, specifically Happenstance, and My Little Miracle - and it's not just the Shyamalan-esque twists either.Read More
When Sam returns home to the tidal island where he grew up to attend a funeral, he soon discovers that the seedy underbelly of this small community harbours more than just a few secrets.
...there was no denying that the Dogged Kickstarter would be a successful one. The only question that remained was, would the qualities which made the short film such a horrifically endearing experience, translate well to a full length feature film.
To cut to the chase; yes, they would.Read More
When Sam and Lola are the victims of a peeping tom, Sam's life begins to spiral out of control. After a series of terrifying encounters with masked maniacs, he must stay alive long enough to expose their true identities.
The first thing that immediately hits you when the short starts is the score. A score can make or break a horror movie in many ways, but this one is dark, intense, and really sets the tone for the story as it unfolds.Read More
Needless to say, if you're the sensitive type, and you prefer your horror films to play it safe (read: boring) - STAY AWAY. Thick-skinned gore hounds however, couldn't ask for a better gift than this! Craig Anderson's mean-spirited yuletide splatterfest is just the film for youRead More
...first 'Ghost in the Shell', and now 'Death Note'... I feel pretty much the same about both films. They don't really do anything sacrilegious or infuriating to the source material, and despite some flaws, they are pretty damn fun.Read More
...while Ghost House certainly has its fair share of stumbles, mainly in the way of editing inconsistencies, oddly misplaced musical pieces, and Jim, it still manages to be a highly energetic, gorgeously shot ghost story.Read More
Space Babes blasts us out of this world, to what feels like a long lost 'USA Up All Night' universe. This is easily the most light-hearted and fun romp we've seen from Williams.Read More
