PiFan Film Fest, Day 4: Baal’s Flowers, Asmodexia, Whispers Behind the Wall, Housebound

Each year I see at least 36 films at the Pucheon International Fantastic Film Festival, and thankfully only about 2 out of that number are usually clunkers. I don’t enjoy writing negative reviews without discussing some positive aspects, but Baal’s Flowers leaves me with pretty much nothing to recommend.

This Italian production is a loosely woven, slow-paced piece that features writer, director, and editor Leonardo Pepi in the starring role as as unnamed university student … Continue reading

REVIEW:

“Shock Value”, A 2014 horror comedy may just be the perfect horror movie fan film of 2014.  Honestly I wasn’t sure what to expect thinking perhaps this may of been one of those over the top visceral films, however things began to lighten up very quickly. In concept, I could easily see half a dozen … Continue reading

Fantom-Kiler-1998-movie-Roman-Nowicki-(7)

SYNOPSIS:

Fantasy and reality become blurred as a misogynistic, masked killer ritually stalks and kills beautiful women who he has encountered previously.

REVIEW:

To take a look at the cover art and movie poster of Roman Nowicki’s 1998 release and debut film, Fantom Kiler, one might think it looks more like a porno than a horror movie. One who thought that wouldn’t be too far off. Reminiscent of a late 80’s/early 90’s … Continue reading

SYNOPSIS:

With the help of a magic ticket, a young film fan is transported into the fictional world of his favorite action film character.

SYNOPSIS:
