Film Review: THE ROAD MOVIE (2016) [aka Doroga]

The Road Movie (2016) aka Doroga Director: Dmitrii Kalashnikov We are all too familiar with the saying, “It was like watching a car crash…you didn’t want to watch, but you couldn’t look away.” Well, director/editor DMITRII KALASHNIKOV has done exactly that with THE ROAD MOVIE: taken dashcam footage from parts of Russia you might recognize, and some you probably didn’t even know existed, and hammered it all into a fascinating, at times...

Film Review: Lin! Forest of Hatred and Dusten Choke (2018)

Lin! Forest of Hatred is an animated short film that we reviewed on this site a a couple weeks ago. After watching the short film, I couldn’t wait to see more from the man behind the animation.

Film Review: DIVERGE (2016)

Like something out of the classic sci-fi/fantasy publication METAL HURLANT, (aka HEAVY METAL, to U.S. fans), writer/director JAMES MORRISON’S DIVERGE (2016) begins almost wordlessly. A man and woman are seen, living a hardscrabble existence with a blasted, desolate, dystopian landscape as their backdrop. Husband and wife, as we discover later, they carry with them a precious cargo: some meager flowering plant life in a container,...

Film Review: DESOLATION (2017)

“Just because you’re paranoid, doesn’t mean they’re not out to get you…” That could very easily be the log line for director DAVID MOSCOW’S riveting thriller, DESOLATION. It could also be aptly subtitled “Gaslighting Katie”, for all of the severe psychological torture that the heroine has to endure. Moscow, a steadily working actor known for films such as DEAD AIR with genre icon Bill Moseley, and RIDING IN CARS WITH BOYS with Drew...

Film Review: DEVIL’S GATE (2017)

DEVIL’S GATE (2017) We’re all familiar with the theory that alien visitors are the source of ancient tales of Gods and Demons interacting with mankind. Even various biblical have been attributed to celestial beings rather than divine ones. But could that happen today, in a world drenched in technology? Maybe if it happened in rural part of the Bible Belt, somewhere like Devil’s Gate, North Dakota. FBI Special Agent Daria Francis...
