Film Review: REVENGE (2017)

Writer/director CORALIE FARGEAT’S REVENGE might be, as of now, one of the most “beautifully ugly” films I have ever seen, and certainly one of the most gorgeously-shot rape/revenge features of this or any time. And there are two different ways you can look at what kind of vibe Fargeat is trying to transmit here: you can call it the cinematic equivalent of a radical women’s rights advocate, breaking into a “men’s rights” meeting with...

Film Review: ISLAND ZERO (2018)

ISLAND ZERO (2018) Director: Josh Gerritsen Writer: Tess Gerritsen Stars: Laila Robins, Adam Wade McLaughlin, Teri Reeves It’s a sad thing, that not too many filmmakers devote their energies to telling good stories anymore, such as the ones that populated the TV screens of yesteryear, as “made-for-TV” films produced by the likes of Aaron Spelling, Douglas S.

Film Review: ALL HALLOWS’ EVE (2013)

All Hallows’ Eve (2013) Director: Damien Leone Stars: Katie Maguire, Catherine A. Callahan, Marie Maser When I hear that a character or story has been spun off from a horror anthology, I love the idea! Especially since the wildly entertaining and creepy-as-fuck SIREN was extracted from the first film in the V/H/S franchise. Looking forward to more of that kind of thing, when I heard that Dread Central Presents was about to...
