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...

Double Film Review: The Dance of Reality & Endless Poetry (2013-2017)

It is pretty common to see a bunch of “best of” and “worst of” lists during the first week of a new year. I usually do them. This year, however, I am completely worn out from the vast amounts of cinematic negativity on the internet. I have just been waiting for that one guy to make two lists consisting of no titles, and then going on to explain why he hates everything…even the stuff he has yet to see. The...

Film Review: THE DEVIL’S WELL (2017)

A husband and wife team of paranormal investigators go out on a mission, only one comes back. A year to the day later the survivor mounts a new expedition to find out what happened and clear his name. We’ve seen a million variation of this, mostly in found footage films. Now writer/director Kurtis Spieler (SHEEP SKIN) takes his shot at it with THE DEVIL’S WELL. Bryan (Bryan Manley Davis) and Karla Marks (Anne-Marie Mueschke) are...

Film Review: DARKEN (2017)

Fantasy as a genre has never enjoyed the success that horror and science fiction have in the movies. This is undoubtedly due in large part to the cost of properly filming it. Done on a low budget it tends to look either really cheap and tacky or like somebody brought a camera to a LARP. There are exceptions of course but for every BEASTMASTER or THE SWORD AND THE SORCEROR there’s a dozen like THE BLADE MASTER. Now Audrey Cummings...

Film Review: DEATH-SCORT SERVICE 2: THE NAKED DEAD (2017)

With a title like  DEATH-SCORT SERVICE PART 2: THE NAKED DEAD (2017) there should be no question just what kind of a film you’re getting. When it’s from The Sleaze Box and director Sean Donohue there is no doubt. The followup to 2015’s DEATH-SCORT SERVICE is everything the original was and more. Opening with a recap of the first film’s conclusion before jumping into the plot with a particularly graphic, in terms of both gore and full...

Film Review: DEMENTIA 13 (2017)

In 1963 legendary producer Roger Corman gave an aspiring writer director named Francis Ford Coppola a shot at his first legit credit (he’d done a couple of nudies and some uncredited reshoots on Corman’s THE TERROR). The result was the low budget classic DEMENTIA 13 (1969). Now in 2017 SyFy’s spooky sibling Chiller has given us an updated version. Can this updated DEMENTIA 13 (2017) match the original, a film that gave so many of us...

Film Review: DEATH-SCORT SERVICE 2: THE NAKED DEAD (2017)

Sean Donohue is back, with editor and DP Chris Woods, and the girls of The Sleaze Box. I, of course must start by saying that I was super impressed by the first Death-Scort Service film. I even bought the damn thing a second time when they released their Shot-on-Video edition. So you can probably understand that as a fan, I didn’t feel great about the fact that I couldn’t help out for their crowdfunding campaign for the...

Film Review: DOWNRANGE (2017)

Ryûhei Kitamura has made a name for himself with his grim and bloody films such as VERSUS, MIDNIGHT MEAT TRAIN and NO ONE LIVES. With DOWNRANGE he distills plot to a bare minimum and pumps the gore up to eleven. Like a slasher film, except with a sniper rifle instead of a machete. Todd (Rod Hernandez) and Sara (Alexa Yeames) and several fellow students who’ve kicked in gas money find themselves stranded on a deserted stretch of road...
