Film Review: May (2002)

May_(movie_poster)

SYNOPSIS: A lonely young woman traumatized by a difficult childhood and her increasingly desperate attempts to connect with the people around her is sent into a murderous tailspin.

Film Review: Cabin Fever (2016)

SYNOPSIS A group of five friends are terrorized at their getaway cabin. REVIEW Why? That one single-word question pretty much sums up my reaction to hearing of a CABIN FEVER remake.

Film Review: Uncaged (2016)

SYNOPSIS: A sleepwalking teen straps a camera to himself and discovers a sinister family secret. REVIEW: Of all the horror subgenres, the most inconsistent one of them all is the werewolf film.

fid11227

SYNOPSIS: A psychic works with the FBI in order to hunt down a serial killer. REVIEW: The film SOLACE has had a very interesting history before finally making it to the screen this year.

An unknown virus begins to spread infecting the local population almost instantly, but footage found by the CDC of one man’s survival may just help them find a cure.
