Review: THE SENTINEL

When you’re suicidal and the wife of the guy you’re having an affair with mysteriously dies, it’s only normal that you wouldn’t feel ready to move in with that guy and marry him, right?

Movie Review: Rabies

Just when I was in the mood for the usual backwoods gorefest and excited to meet a new psychotic family of killers, the Israeli horror movie “Rabies” (Blood Clan/Kalevet) threw me for a loop and gave me something I wasn’t expecting. What trailers implied to be a typical slasher turned out to be far from it, and the film’s characters …

Movie Review: Dark Feed

The last time that I checked, The Ward was a total suckfest of a movie so, marketing your next horror release by associating yourself with a failure isn’t exactly a high selling point for audiences.

Movie Review: The Lords of Salem

Whatever the reason, volunteering is supposed to provide one with a meaningful and positive experience. In the indie horror, I Didn’t Come Here to Die, six young humanitarians discover …

Apocalpse of the Dead: Movie Review

Someone needs to tell Ken Foree that he doesn’t need to do every horror movie that comes his way and more importantly, that not every zombie movie is written and directed by George Romero. Unfortunately, for the horror legend, he seemed unaware of these two things when he signed onto the 2009 Serbian horror, Zone of the Dead (released in …

The Frozen: Movie Review

Here’s a bit of advice fellas: if your girlfriend wants to go on vacation with you, don’t take her on a camping trip in the middle of nowhere during the winter. Not only will you not get laid, you may find yourself being stalked and taunted by a creepy stranger. In The Frozen, a couple soon realizes that their romantic …

Grave Encounters: Movie Review

It seems as though everyone and their mom has a paranormal television show and since the success of Paranormal Activity, found-footage style movies have reigned supreme. The 2011 horror, Grave Encounters, took both of those successful aspects and put a spin on their movie, presenting a parody of the genre that quickly becomes terrifying. Grave Encounters, written and directed by …
