Film Review: MOM AND DAD (2017)

It’s probably safe to say that every parent in existence today, or every one that EVER existed, has had that moment of pause: that split second when dealing with their kids, regardless of what age (ESPECIALLY with teenagers, though), when something’s gone wrong, or something has happened that turned a shit day into an even shittier day, thanks to their ‘little darlings’, and that thought has crossed their mind before they could even...

Film Review: Mad Macbeth (2017)

Mad Macbeth is a new project from the European gore machine Domiziano Christopharo. As far as indie film directors go, this newcomer may be the most promising of the lot. He has consistently done nice work across numerous horror sub genres. He is also one of the newest filmmakers to hit the best indie horror label in the U.S., Unearthed Films. Mad Macbeth is one of Christopharo’s most interesting projects to date. It is a...

Film Review: MY LITTLE MIRACLE (2017)

Clocking in at a quick eight minutes MY LITTLE MIRACLE, the latest short from George James Fraser (HAPPENSTANCE) is a charmingly grim bedtime story that manages to be darkly funny and cringe inducingly disturbing. A young mother (Charmaine Jossick) answers her daughter’s question “Where did I come from” as a bedtime story. As we hear her sweet tale, we see what really happened and the disconnect between the two adds some very black...

Film Review: MOTHER! (2017)

ART, CONTROVERSY, AND SOCIAL MEDIA: My favorite artists are the ones that do their own thing. They are the ones that are sometimes the only ones that know what they are doing. This usually makes them incredibly original, but also polarizing. In film, the guys that come to mind are fairly common names to most of us. Alejandro Jodorowsky and David Lynch are the first two names that come to mind when I think about these types of divisive...

Film Review: MY DEMON WITHIN (2005)

My Demon Within was a film directed by Michael Su back in 2005. It has a very strange digital look to it. Apparently is was shot on a camera that wasn’t used a whole lot for making whole films. I don’t know a whole lot about the technical end of things. All I know is that IMDB said it was the first full feature film to be shot entirely on the (at the time brand new) Sony HDR FX 1 camera. Aside from the overall digital look of the...

Film Review: M.F.A. (2017) [Fantasia 2017]

The rape/revenge film has earned a reputation for being sleazy even by horror and exploitation standards, and to a certain degree that certainly justified. Sexualized rape scenes and over the top killings abound. Of course not all of them went to the lengths of 1985’s VICTIMS which ended with the surviving women being told by the sheriff that they asked for it by going camping alone, but sleaze abounds.With M.F.A. director Natalia...

Film Review: MEATBALL MACHINE KODOKU (2017) [Fantasia 2017)

In 2005 the original MEATBALL MACHINE was unleashed on a largely unsuspecting world, it not only helped kick off a wave of surreal Japanese gore films but launched the career of it’s effects guru Yoshihiro Nishimura who would go on to direct the likes of TOKYO GORE POLICE and HELLDRIVER as well as his effects work on everything from underground films to the live action DEATH NOTE films. Now, he brings it full circle and directs...
