Film Review: DEMONS (2017)

DEMONS (2017), the new film from writer, director and star Miles Doleac (THE HOLLOW) is described as a psychological thriller that marries elements of THE EXORCIST, THE SHINING and THE BIG CHILL. And while an exorcism is involved, the film is much more BIG CHILL than chilling. Colin Hampstead (Miles Doleac THE HOLLOW, SHARK LAKE) left the priesthood after a failed exorcism resulted in the death of a young girl. Now a famous horror...

Film Reviews: RE-ANIMATOR, DON’T TORTURE A DUCKLING, and RONIN from Arrow Video

Arrow Video has recently released three great films that I already have in my collection. These are classic genre films that have been spoken about at great lengths on this site and many others; so, I will just give you a quick run-down in regard to which are most likely additions to which type of collector. They have already done great things with the Re-Animator series. This new edition is an unrated Blu-ray release with a bunch of...

Film Review: DEVIANT BEHAVIOR (2017)

Deviant Behavior (2017) Film Review by Meredith Brown Directed by Jacob Grimm Written by Sal Hernandez Starring John Dugan, Tania Monroy, Eric Rodrigue, L. G. Koruptore, Alex Heatherley A pint of Fireball was needed when I watched this film. A pitcher of sangria is what I needed to write this review. DEVIANT BEHAVIOR is horrible. When the potential thrill appears during the opening credits, I tend to think YES! This is going to be one...

Film Review: DEMON HUNTER (2016)

Since it’s release in 1994 THE CROW has left it’s mark on horror fans and goths alike with it’s dark, action filled tale of supernatural revenge. Now Zoe Kavanagh grafts that film’s look and feel onto BLADE’S swordplay, makes the lead a young woman and gives us DEMON HUNTER. And for such a low budget effort, the results are fairly impressive. We first encounter Taryn (Niamh Hogan) killing a demon and giving it’s head to an accomplice...

Film Review: DELIVER US (2016) [Fantasia 2017]

Demonic possession and exorcism has been a genre staple since the book and movie THE EXORCIST pulled in huge amounts of both cash and critical acclaim. And that popularity has been on the rise lately thanks to films like THE CONJURING and DELIVER US FROM EVIL. Now Federica Di Giacomo takes a look at the realities of modern day exorcists in the documentary DELIVER US (LIBERA NOS in it’s original Italian) and the results are frightening...

Film Review: DIAMOND CARTEL (2017)

Diamond Cartel is a film from MVD Entertainment and Cleopatra Records. It stars Michael Madsen and Peter O’toole. It is a film that will blow your mind, just not in a good way. When you view the cover of this film, you will think it has Kill Bill written all over it. I think that was the point too. It does, in fact, seem to have taken a huge amount of influence from Tarantino. Its plot screams True Romance, while its structure in time...

Film Review: DEAD SHACK (2017) – Fantasia 2017

I’m sure for many, one of the most terrifying events of our adolescent years was the family vacation. Forced to endure ones parents idea of fun and trapped in the company of younger siblings, it was pure hell. How could it possibly get worse? Well there could be zombies. DEAD SHACK is the story of just such a vacation. Colin (Gabriel LaBelle) and his sister Summer (Lizzy Boys) and Colin’s best friend Justin (Matthew Nelson-Mahood) are...

Film Review: DEVIL’S DOMAIN (2017)

Devils Domain stars Michael Madsen and a bunch of teenage girls. It is, for the most part, a stereotypical teen dramedy mixed with a stereotypical demonic revenge film. Director Jared Cohn churns out a few movies a year, many of them following stereotypical plots, often capitalizing on the popularity of a more recent and recognizable film. So yes, he makes SyFy and Redbox and VOD cash grabs. This, of course, isn’t the worst...
