Film Review: CENTRAL PARK (2017)

The slasher film, love it or hate it, is one of the most durable and prolific horror sub-genres. Cheap to film and easy to grind out on a by the numbers script it’s become a staple of low budget filmmakers. Of course once you break away from the by the numbers approach you can do a lot of things with it. CENTRAL PARK, the debut film from writer/director Justin Reinsilber attempts to throw some social commentary into the mix, with some...

Film Review: Melancholia (2017)

Meancholia is a really boring movie directed by Lars Von Trier, starring Kirsten Dunst. This, however, is not that movie. This Melancholia is a short independent film from the underground, directed by Emir Skalonja. Skalonja writes, directs, and produces his own movies. He has made feature length films, shorts, and segments for anthology films like Grindsploitation. He has four releases set up for this year, including a title that...

Film Review: THE VOID (2016)

When it comes to ‘homage’ movies, I love the ones that are strictly “no bullshit” about what they are, and where they’re about to take you. Writer/directors JEREMY GILLESPIE and STEVEN KOSTANSKI squarely put their movie, THE VOID, into this category from jump, and it wears its influences and their love of those influences on its gory, slimy sleeve. Carpenter’s PRINCE OF DARKNESS and THE THING. Stuart Gordon’s Lovecraft entries, like...

Film Review: AMERICAN GUINEA PIG: SONG OF SOLOMON (2017)

The American Guinea Pig project has moved the filmmakers involved and Unearthed Films ridiculously far in only a couple years. The release of Bouquet of Guts and Gore was a very low budget experiment in practical gore effects. It was a great shout out to the infamous Flower of Flesh and Blood from 1985. The follow-up, Bloodshock, was an arthouse experiment in claustrophobic aesthetics. The move from film one to film two showed that...

Film Review: TORMENT (2017)

Torment is a film that was inspired by the killings of John Wayne Gacy. The infamous clown killer raped, tortured, and mutilated at least 33 victims. He has been famously and infamously used in films and books for years. While many people blame It or American Horror Story for making them afraid of clowns, I blame this real-life example of brutality and murder. This is a film directed by Adam Ford. It is also being produced by...

Film Review: 47 METERS DOWN (2017)

47 Meters Down Film Review by Meredith Brown Written by Johannes Roberts and Ernest Riera Directed by Johannes Roberts Starring: Mandy Moore, Claire Holt and Matthew Modine Mandy Moore. Gosh, you’re an awful actress. So very, very BAD. However, casting you in a shark-themed film where you may be devoured by a great white, actually peaked my interest in an extremely sinister way. I like shark movies. Hell, I SWAM with sharks in Bora...

Film Review: Karaoke Terror (2003)

Karaoke Terror is a strange, yet likable release from Synapse Films. It was directed by Tetsuo Shinohara, who has had a prolific career; however, is not very well known outside of his native Japan. The novelist behind this film is one that many fans have hear of due to the worldwide hit directed by Takashi Miike, Audition.  The Japanese title of this film is Shôwa kayô daizenshû. I have no idea how much of the title has to do with...
