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...

Film Review: LIVING SPACE (2018)

Film Review: LIVING SPACE (2018) Director: Steven Spiel Stars: Georgia Chara, Andy McPhee, Emma Leonard Alright, so…Remember HAPPY DEATH DAY? A movie that took a pretty grim premise and actually managed to make it almost “fun” to watch? Well, what happens if you take the ‘fun’ out of it, switch the scenario to an entirely different country, and then let it play out in a totally different way? One possibility is writer/director...

Every Unearthed Films Release, Ranked and Rated: Part 4 of 5 (#11-#20)

The top twenty releases from Unearthed Films are truly must-own films for the collector of independent, underground, and extreme horror. Many of these are modern releases, showing the growing quality of the label with multi-disc releases and wild special editions. There are still some classics in the top twenty though. Some are going to be tough to find, making some of these older releases excellent collector pieces. The newest...

Every Unearthed Films Release, Ranked and Rated: Part 1 of 5 (#51-#75)

Thanks to the Letterboxd app, I am becoming obsessed with making lists. I know I’m late to that show, because all anyone has ever wanted to read on the internet for the last ten years has been list posts. Anyway, for my first website related list, I decided to rate and rank of all the films that have been released by Unearthed Films thus far. Since Letterboxd uses a 1-5 star scale, with 1/2 numbers as an option, I started with...

Double Film Review: LEATHERFACE and JIGSAW…aka First remakes, now Useless Sequels (2018)

As an unofficial follow-up to my super-official series of commentary relating to remakes, I will be talking about the never-ending string of sequels in the horror world. I recently watched Leatherface and Jigsaw, despite the numerous online complaints about both films. Luckily enough, I don’t care about other peoples’ opinions. I tell all of my fifteen readers, on a regular basis, not to even listen to my opinion. So take...

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. Upon meeting the comic book artist, writer, director, and film animator, I was quickly given access to his follow up film Dusten Choke. The man behind these films is Joona Kopperoinen. He lives in Finland, and is currently working on...

Film Review: LIN! FOREST OF HATRED (2016)

Lin! Forest of Hatred is the story of a drunken man who tries to escape his recent past within the embraces of alcohol and solitude in his secluded log cabin. However, the past won’t let go, and as his desperation grows, the forest slowly turns into a nightmare of hatred, suffering and pain. Troceleng Studios created this 26 minute animated horror short. Lin! Forest of Hatred serves up some old school animation. For me whilst...

Film Review: LONG NIGHT IN A DEAD CITY (2017)

If you’ve ever walked down a darkened, empty street in your town at some point, and felt that surreal, displaced feeling that all is not what it seemed – not even YOU, then LONG NIGHT IN A DEAD CITY, director RICHARD GRIFFIN’S own peripheral ode to CARNIVAL OF SOULS, will be just what you’re looking for. Griffin, together with life and producing partner TED MARR, has been the driving force behind Scorpio Film Releasing, his...

Film Review: LIVE EVIL (2015)

There’s been a small boom in genre films set in police station in the past few years, films like THE TRAVELER, INKUBUS, and THE LAST SHIFT. Shot in 2015, LIVE EVIL seems to have been an attempt to parody them. I say seems because the results are so muddled it’s really hard to tell exactly what’s going on. It’s sad because there’s the germ of a good film in here, but it’s lost in a sea of unexplained events and odd style choices....

Film Review: LITTLE EVIL (2017)

No company that produces a lot of movies every year, gets it right 100% of the time. For every time that jump shot hits “nothing but net”, there’s those ‘air-balls’…the near-misses to the outright “HTF does this movie even EXIST???” Netflix is no exception, and this time the ‘almost-got-there’ award goes to writer/director ELI CRAIG’S LITTLE EVIL (2017). Craig, you’d think, would be a shoo-in for an OMEN-like horror parody,...
