Film Review: Refuge (2013)

Refuge-2013-movie-Andrew-Robertson-(6)

SYNOPSIS:

Refuge is a suspense-thriller about a family struggling to survive in the wake of a great catastrophic event.

REVIEW:

The post-apocalyptic worlds that are set up in different movies, television shows, and books are fascinating. They are able to include modern amenities while also creating a dependence upon items that do not require replenishment. Weapons tend to revert to blunt items rather than guns which need ammunition. Travel necessitates vehicles that don’t … Continue reading

Film Review: Cam2Cam (2014)

Cam2cam-2014-movie-Joel-Soisson-(7)

SYNOPSIS:

An American tourist in Bangkok encounters a mysterious group of web performers harboring a terrible secret

REVIEW:

It’s hard to talk about Cam2Cam without feeling like you’re talking about a product of work that’s really two distinct short films, with a smattering of shared actors and have been stitched together by Director Joel Soisson (Piranha 3DD). And there’s good reason for this as our opening kill – the kind of … Continue reading

Film Review: Exists (2014)

Exists-2014-movie-Eduardo-Sánchez-(10)

SYNOPSIS:

A group of friends who venture into the remote Texas woods for a party weekend find themselves stalked by Bigfoot.

REVIEW:

If you were ever wondering when the time might arrive that actually uses Big Foot as a main horror element AND succeeds in being a kick ass horror film, then that time has come. “Exists” is a 2014 horror film directed by Eduardo Sánchez (Blair witch, Altered) that dares … Continue reading

Film Review: Ozone! Attack of the Redneck Mutants (1986)

Ozone!-Attack-of-the-Redneck-Mutants-1986-movie-Matt-Devlen-(2)

SYNOPSIS:

A hole in the Ozone layer turns some rednecks into flesh-eating mutants.

 REVIEW:

If you really think about it (and I know you want to), it’s kind of surprising that with the recent cash-in on everything zombie, we haven’t seen much from the mutant/mutation sub-genre. Really, they’re the same type of movie, a horde of transformed ex-humans on the loose, sometimes changing with little to no warning. While with zombies … Continue reading

Film Review: Kettensagen Zombies Redux (Chainsaw Zombies) (2010)

Kettensägen-Zombies-Redux-Chainsaw-Zombies-Redux-2010-movie-(7)

REVIEW:

Okay, so apparently, back in 1999, Andreas Pape (a regular in Timo Rose films) and Oliver Kellisch (an actor almost exclusively in Timo Rose films) got together and made a short (28 minutes long) German splatter movie about a zombie with a chainsaw called Kettensagen Zombies (or Chainsaw Zombies). For whatever reason, in 2010 the same two directors got together, along with their 1999 short, and re-cut, re-edited, and re-packaged the same … Continue reading

Film Review: Sledge (2014)

Sledge-2014-movie-John-B-Sovie-II-(4)

SYNOPSIS:

Sledge hits you from the beginning with humor and originality. Opening with Assly’s True American Horror television program, the action kicks off instantly with skull crushing deaths from the killer, Adam Lynch. Adam believes he is in a movie and video game that he has created in his head.

REVIEW:

Sledge is, arguably, an interesting movie. Don’t let my words confuse, though: ‘interesting’ doesn’t necessarily mean ‘good’ or ‘bad’. Being totally honest, it … Continue reading
