Film Review: FAKE BLOOD (2017)

The debate over violence in entertainment goes back as far as entertainment itself. I’m sure there were complaints that the tales told around Neanderthal’s campfires got too gruesome at times, and it’s only gotten worse as technology has let violence look more realistic. Now in FAKE BLOOD, (which screened as part of this 2017’s Blood in the Snow festival), director ROB GRANT (YESTERDAY, MON AMI) takes a personal and at times...

Film Review: TALON FALLS (2017)

TALON FALLS (2017) is the first feature length film from writer/director Joshua Shreve. It stars Brad Bell, Fred Biggs, and Lonnie Bloomburg, and has gained distribution through MVD Entertainment.   Talon Falls is a backwoods/slasher/splatter amalgamation of some sort. It is a film that will definitely receive mixed reviews from many of the horror fans out there. I think this is why I still have mixed feelings about the film. On one...

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: STRAWBERRY FLAVORED PLASTIC (2018)

Strawberry Flavored Plastic (2018) Directed By: Colin Bemis Reviewed By: Madeline Milden It is not often I encounter a film so dull it’s more irritating than sleep inducing. Trust me eating strawberry flavored plastic would have been more enjoyable than watching this mess again. Filmmakers Errol and Ellis discover a serial killer named Noel and make him the subject of their first documentary. Noel finds out his ex from a few years ago...

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: 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...

Film Review: ANTIVIRAL (2012)

CALEB LANDRY JONES. You’ve probably been seeing that name associated with a lot of roles lately, from the psychotic brother of Allison Williams character in Jordan Peele’s brilliant directorial debut GET OUT, to a conflicted, drug-addicted boyfriend in David Lynch’s revisit to TWIN PEAKS. His first role should have been an indication of things to come, as one of the kids on bikes who spots a wounded Javier Bardem in The Coen Brothers’...

ADAM CHAPLIN (2011) Directors: Emanuele De Santi, Giulio De Santi Synopsis: Adam Chaplin investigates his wife’s murder and discovers mafia boss Denny, is involved. Unable to trust the corrupt police, Adam summons a demon to lead him to the murderer, if he does everything the demon asks.

Film Review: J.D.’S REVENGE (1976)

I love Arrow Video’s dedication to classic fringe genres. They are one of the top choices when it comes to “The Criterion Collection of Cult Collecting”. As with The Criterion Collection, I also have to wait for their sales before I can afford the majority of the upgrades my collection craves. With less than a week left in this year’s Festive Sale, you may want to pick up this title along with many others....
