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.

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...
