Film Review: THE FLATWOODS MONSTER (2018) – Midwest WeirdFest

Since the release of THE MINERVA MONSTER in 2015 Small Town Monsters has built a reputation for producing interesting and well made documentaries on various strange phenomena mostly involving cryptozoology, the study of legendary creatures such as Bigfoot.

Film Review: ANTIHUMAN (2017)

Originally filmed under the title POST HUMAN: AN EVENT, the second film from directors Luke Gietzen and Mark Robins would have had a hard time finding acceptance among mainstream horror fans as it was. A slow, dialogue driven film better filled with scenes and ideas better suited for the art house than mass market in the first place. But then Wild Eye Releasing re-titled it ANTIHUMAN and sold it as a cross between ORPHAN BLACK and...

Film Review: THE FAITH COMMUNITY (2017)

THE FAITH COMMUNITY (2017) I have to say right from the start I had a hard time watching THE FAITH COMMUNITY.

Even though evil dolls have been around since the beginning of film, it was ANNABELLE that reanimated it. And CURSE OF THE WITCH’S DOLL may well be the film to kill it again. Beginning with a prologue set in 1660 in which a witch is dragged off to her doom as her doll, (with eyes that look oddly plastic given the time period), watches. We then jump ahead to 1942, Adeline (Helen Crevel SURVIVAL INSTINCT) and her daughter Chloe (Layla...

Film Review: UNLISTED OWNER (2013)

UNLISTED OWNER (2013) from writer/director Jed Brian is yet another found footage film about people going somewhere with an evil reputation and running into evil activities. Despite differing a bit from the usual by being pieced together from footage from several cameras the film is still mostly an exercise in deja vu. UNLISTED OWNER starts with a family moving into their new home. Their daughter is convinced they’re not alone but...
