Film Review: ASCENT TO HELL (2017)

Horrors of the supernatural kind, rooted in real world horror can be some of the most effective. The real components of the story lending seriousness to the fictional. In the case of Dena Hysell’s ASCENT TO HELL that reality is the 1911 fire at the Triangle Shirtwaist Factory in New York City, with additional references to similar tragedies happening now in the likes of India and Bangladesh. Using these tragedies as a starting point...

Film Review: THE GIRL WITH ALL THE GIFTS (2016)

For the longest time, whenever the subject of the ‘zombie apocalypse’ sub-genre has been raised, THE WALKING DEAD series has pretty much sucked all the air out of the room. With its jaw-dropping success, it was shortly joined by Z-NATION, iZOMBIE, and the like.  Unfortunately, with each new manifestation, the entire canon of zombie lore, begun by the great George Romero all the way back in 1968 with NIGHT OF THE LIVING DEAD, became...

Film Review: Cinema Paradiso (1988)

Arrow Video as a label actually splits up its time into a few different categories. Many collectors out there, the ones reading this site anyway, look at the “Arrow Video” releases, that focus on cult and horror releases. So here we go with a quick lesson. Arrow Films is the company. Arrow Video has the cool Blu-ray and combo releases with full-color art, booklets, and awesome features that we have come to love. Arrowdrome is the DVD...

Film Review: PSYCHOS (2017)

Three young girls abused for years before escaping, their tormentors never caught. Now, years later somebody has mailed them videotapes of their ordeal. They band together, determined to find those responsible and take revenge. Sounds like a simple enough plot, a group effort I SPIT ON YOUR GRAVE, but PSYCHOS, Sandy Chukhadarian’s debut feature takes things in some unexpected directions. The film begins with police making a gruesome...

Film Reviews: The Violent Shit Collection (2017)

While I could do a retrospective covering one of the craziest series of films of all time, I think it would be a little repetitive. While the films vary in quality, plot, and acting, they are still independent micro-budget splatter-fests. I wouldn’t want to waste your time explaining thing like shot-on-video, practical effects, and the history behind European film censorship for a review of each film. I wouldn’t do a great...

Film Review: Child Eater (2017)

Awhile back I reviewed a surprisingly well-done horror anthology film called Patient Seven. One of the directors on that film now has two feature length movies being distributed. Child Eater and Rift are the film titles to remember and Erlingur Thoroddsen is the director to remember. Child Eater is a suspenseful and action packed supernatural thriller. It truly surprised me. Walking into it, I imagined it being another one of those...
