FACE OF 4 (2017): Short Film Review…Grabs You By The Hackles

So…you’re a filmmaker that’s taking a one-location, minimal-dialogue script, two actors, and a handful of props, setting out to make a film that both demands attention and draws an audience into that world, holding them firmly until the final resolution creates a catharsis of emotion in those viewers…and you’re going to do all of this with less…

WE GO ON (2016): Review…Be Mindful Of That Which You Seek

miles_facing_fears

Ghost stories run a wide gamut in the spectrum of horror films.  Otherworldly spirits can range from malicious entities hell-bent on harming the living (The Amityville Horror, the Paranormal Activity  franchise), spectral deviants drawing similar souls into their torment (The Shining, Poltergeist ), vengeful souls wronged in life (best evidenced in J-Horror films like Ju-On  and Ringu ),…

THE HOLLY KANE EXPERIMENT (2016): Review – An Enjoyable Espionage-Type Thriller

the_holly_kane_experiement_review

The Holly Kane Experiment really falls into the espionage thriller genre and was a film I enjoyed. An obsessive psychologist attempts to reprogramme her subconscious mind, but when her actions become increasingly uncharacteristic she fears her experiment is dangerously out of control. The synopsis is from the film’s ImDB page (http://www.imdb.com/title/tt4862506/?ref_=nv_sr_1), I feel if I…

OUIJA: THE INSIDIOUS EVIL (2017): Review…Supernatural Horror Overlapping A Life Tragedy

Have you Fellow Fans checked out any of the stuff coming outta Ireland for the last couple years? There’s some pretty thought-provoking horror flowing outta the Emerald Isle, with names like Ivan Kavanagh, Colin Downey, and Gerard Lough being some directors whose work I’ve enjoyed greatly. Having their own particular flavor, films like Tin Can Man,…

VOODOO (2017): Review – Doggystyle’n With A Demon

voodoo-movie-review

I have to admit this is one of the more unique found footage films I have seen. But don’t let that fool you, there are some major issues with the film, outside of the whole tired found footage genre. Voodoo  tells the tale of Dani, a southern girl going to the big city of Los…

CAPTURE KILL RELEASE (2016): Review – There Is No Release From This One

capture-kill-release

Capture Kill Release  is a POV shot (aka “found-footage” film) that has some merits, even though I am not fond of the sub-genre. The flick follows the same formula of said sub-genre to the point of nothing actually happening until about an hour into the movie.  Sure, we get glimpses of character traits and bits and pieces…

THE FIANCÉ (2016): Review…”Buck up, Bucko”

The Fiance Review

Sometimes trailers and synopses can be deceiving. As a horror fan and creature feature fan, I was excited about this film after viewing the trailer. It looked like an action-packed, funny take on the bigfoot creature in all its glory. However, watching the film I was left laughing hysterically — not at the humor IN…
