Every Unearthed Films Release, Ranked and Rated: Part 5 of 5 (TOP TEN!!)

As we approach top 10 territory, I realize that these are the films that I have watched an almost unhealthy number of times. These are examples of horror film history. They come from all over the world and exemplify the best of multiple sub-genres of extreme horror.  10.5??? Coming in tenth place was essentially a tie between Marcus Koch’s insane clown film 100 Tears. It is a cult classic, and possibly the best movie I’ve...

Every Unearthed Films Release, Ranked and Rated: Part 2 of 5 (#36-#50)

Numbers thirty-six through fifty make up most of the three star reviews. Number thirty-five actually received three stars, with thirty-four starting off the series of 3.5 star reviews. Number thirty-seven also marks the middle of road, being the halfway point between one and seventy-five. So this is the part of the list where we abandon all fear of cliches, and break on through to the other side. Philosophy of a Knife and Android of...

Multi-Film Review: A24 FILMS (2018)

Independent film is the only way we can find originality in cinema anymore. If you’re sick of prequels, remakes, comic books adaptations, and a  never-ending supply of sequels, you may need to expand your horizons. So even though this is Beneath the Underground, I know we have readers that appreciate all types of films. Usually I do something weird like this around award season. A couple years ago, I offended some readers by talking...

Film Review: FUTURE (2017) – Midwest Weirdfest

Future (2017) is a thought provoking indie gem that creatively explores the human condition, depression and living your best life. A worthy winner at the Genre Blast Film Festival 2017 Film Festival.

Film Review: THE FAITH COMMUNITY (2017)

THE FAITH COMMUNITY (2017) I have to say right from the start I had a hard time watching THE FAITH COMMUNITY. Not because of anything in it’s content but because this may be the shakiest film in the history of found footage. While I don’t particularly like shaky cam footage it usually doesn’t affect me. This was so bad I ended up with a headache. The plot follows three students, Hannah (Janessa Floyd), Colin (Jeffrey Brabant), and...

Blu-Ray Review: FEED THE LIGHT (2014)

Film Review: Feed the Light (2014) Released in 2017 by INTERVISION PICTURE CORP. and SEVERIN FILMS, FEED THE LIGHT is bare bones, bizarre genre brilliance. Co-written, produced and directed by Henrik Möller, this marks Möller feature film debut after 65 video and traditional short form projects in total. Perhaps as close to a master of short form storytelling as you will find on the scene, Möller and co-writer Martin Jirhamn release a...

Film Review: Flesh of the Void (2017)

Flesh of the Void is an art-house horror film from Sodom & Chimera Productions. This Austrian company was founded by the writer and director of this film. This is his first feature length film, after producing numerous experimental short films. So who the hell is he? That is exactly what I was thinking when I started this up. Now that it is over, it is a name that I definitely won’t forget. James Quinn is the mad genius...
