FIlm Review: THE RITUAL (2017)

The last time that you saw a good horror flick that tickled your fear of being alone in the deep, dark woods…when was it? What was it you saw? THE BLAIR WITCH PROJECT? WRONG TURN? The Jeff Lieberman classic JUST BEFORE DAWN? Or maybe it was one of the early installments of the FRIDAY THE 13TH franchise? Well, director DAVID BRUCKNER (V/H/S, SOUTHBOUND) has another one you can add to your “bucket list” with the Netflix Original...

Film Review: Hellraiser: Judgment (2018)

Hellraiser is a franchise that is near and dear to me. I have covered the entire series in one way or another on this site already. Outside of my reviews, I also read the comics and the books. I even collect the toys; in fact, I have an entire shelf dedicated to Clive Barker in my horror room…which is now a horror walk-in closet thanks to the birth of my child. With all of that being said, there are many hardcore Hellraiser and...

Film Review: WAKE IN FRIGHT (1971)

WAKE IN FRIGHT is a 70’s Oz-ploitation film set in the unforgiving barren Australian outback. Written by Evan Jones (based on the Kenneth Cook novel) and directed by Ted Kotcheff the film follows the story of John Grant. John is a young, handsome teacher who works begrudgingly in the small township of Tiboonda. Quite early on we learn that John’s only motivation to teach in Tiboonda is because of his teaching bond, making all new...

Film Review: BLACK CREEK (2017)

The quality of Writer/Director JAMES CROW’S third feature made in that capacity, BLACK CREEK (2017), ironically seems somewhat to mirror the plot of the movie. Every time the halfway decent storyline tries to rise into existence, the grade-school level acting of the majority of the cast keeps killing it. Over…and over…and over…and over again. Maybe I’m not getting it because it wasn’t intended for someone from my...

Film Review: THE FAITH COMMUNITY (2017)

THE FAITH COMMUNITY (2017) I have to say right from the start I had a hard time watching THE FAITH COMMUNITY. Not because of anything in it’s content but because this may be the shakiest film in the history of found footage. While I don’t particularly like shaky cam footage it usually doesn’t affect me. This was so bad I ended up with a headache. The plot follows three students, Hannah (Janessa Floyd), Colin (Jeffrey Brabant), and...

Film Review: ZOMBIOLOGY: ENJOY YOURSELF TONIGHT

Well. WOW. How do I even begin? I went into director ALAN LO’S epic ZOMBIOLOGY with little to no expectations, save my past experiences with Asian horror/sci-fi/fantasy…the last encounter having worked out pretty well, considering it was another zombie thriller from South Korea, TRAIN TO BUSAN. This mostly Hong Kong production does share quite a few similarities, but diverges into SHAUN OF THE DEAD-country more often than not....

Film Review: Contamination (1982)

Contamination was another “splatteriffic” film that I picked up from this year’s Arrow Video Festive Sale. It was released in 1980 and directed by Luigi Cozzi. He made a Hercules movie and a Godzilla movie. He did some stuff to honor Dario Argento as well. For the most part, though, we only care about him because of this movie. Contamination is an alien exploitation film that will remind you of everything from Hell of the...

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...
