Film Review: Kuso (2017)

I recently heard about this film in a Facebook group. It is a really strange apocalyptic peek into urban living, sex, the music industry, and fame. It is a film that will definitely leave a mark on your memory, whether you decide that you like it or not. The writer and director of this film is the quirky and eccentric musician that goes by the name Flying Lotus. He is apparently fairly well known in the music world. His music and...

Film Review: Antithese (2017)

Antithese is a short film from Thomas Binder and Jonas Sommer. It centers around a couple, in a cabin, in the woods; but, it’s no Evil Dead. I don’t mean that in a bad way either. Although it is short film, it definitely has sequences that will pack a gory punch for most viewers. The gore hounds, of course, are expecting that kind of experience from the director of Necrophile Passion and the evil mastermind behind Black...

Film Review: BEWARE, THE BEAST I WORSHIP (2017) – Brooklyn Horror Film Festival

A lone man on a late night subway train encounters a large wolf like dog out on it’s own. A dog that talks with a voice only the man can hear, a voice that says things that may not be in the man’s best interests. Adam Chitayat’s ten minute short BEWARE, THE BEAST I WORSHIP feels like it took the alleged motivation for one of NYC’s most notorious killers Davis Berkowitiz aka Son of Sam and crossed it with FALLING DOWN. The result is...

Film Review: DEATH-SCORT SERVICE 2: THE NAKED DEAD (2017)

With a title like  DEATH-SCORT SERVICE PART 2: THE NAKED DEAD (2017) there should be no question just what kind of a film you’re getting. When it’s from The Sleaze Box and director Sean Donohue there is no doubt. The followup to 2015’s DEATH-SCORT SERVICE is everything the original was and more. Opening with a recap of the first film’s conclusion before jumping into the plot with a particularly graphic, in terms of both gore and full...

Film Review: HAGAZUSSA: A HEATHEN’S CURSE (2017) – Brooklyn Horror Film Festival

Horror is usually looked upon as lowbrow entertainment for the masses, and given many of the genre films that’s fairly accurate. But when it is aimed at the arthouse instead of the grindhouse, the genre can produce some incredible films such as THE WICKER MAN and NOSFERATU: THE VAMPIRE. And while HAGAZUSSA: A HEATHEN’S CURSE may not quite be in their league, it’s still a breathtaking film. Even more impressive when you consider it’s a...

Film Review: DEMENTIA 13 (2017)

In 1963 legendary producer Roger Corman gave an aspiring writer director named Francis Ford Coppola a shot at his first legit credit (he’d done a couple of nudies and some uncredited reshoots on Corman’s THE TERROR). The result was the low budget classic DEMENTIA 13 (1969). Now in 2017 SyFy’s spooky sibling Chiller has given us an updated version. Can this updated DEMENTIA 13 (2017) match the original, a film that gave so many of us...
