Evil-eye-1975-Movie-Mario-Siciliano-2

SYNOPSIS:

REVIEW:

When I say that absolutely nothing makes sense in this movie, I mean it. Absolutely nothing makes sense. Somewhere in all the blabber and gratuitous orgy and pool party scenes, accompanied by 70s’ funky porn … Continue reading

I honestly don’t know how to review this movie without talking about the chicks and dicks and sex scenes and how it’s all somehow connected to Satanism. … Continue reading

Film Review: Armistice (2013)

Armistice-movie-2013-warhouse-Luke-Massey-5

SYNOPSIS:

A Royal Marine awakens to find himself imprisoned and forced to fight to the death against inhuman opponents again and again.

REVIEW:

War is Hell.  For yours truly, being fortunate enough to never have encountered firsthand what the term “war” encompasses, it took merely my 8th grade English required reading list to bring to light that it isn’t all justified murder and a hero’s welcome home.  The book was Dalton Trumbo’s Johnny … Continue reading

The-Aztec-Box-2013-movie-Serge-Bronstein-4

SYNOPSIS:

4 college students dig up an ancient Aztec relic in their own backyard, only to discover a dark force that is attached to it.

REVIEW:

Two things have come along, enabling almost anyone to make a horror movie: changes in technology and the found footage sub-genre. Anymore, all you need is a digital camera, some editing software, a friend with a midi synth, and a screenplay that invokes constant running cameras. Boom. … Continue reading

Low-2011-movie-Ross-Shepherd-6

SYNOPSIS:

A lonely city girl finds herself taken hostage by disturbed outsider. Miles from home she must not only escape her captor, but also protect a dark and dangerous secret.

REVIEW:

Low is a low budget psychological thriller indie that plays on the concept that you really don’t know the true person that you are talking to. Yes people might look harmless on the outside, but deep down we all have … Continue reading

The-Paranormal-Diaries-Clophill-2013-movie-1

Film Review: The Amazing Adventures of the Living Corpse (2012)

The-Amazing-Adventures-of-the-Living-Corpse-(2012)-movie-6

SYNOPSIS:

A somewhat self-aware zombie takes it upon himself to keep the rest of the walking dead at bay.

REVIEW:

It was only a matter of time before someone was savvy enough to bring us a comic book zombie hero.  In this humble opinion, James O’Barr had already accomplished that exact artistic feat when he created The Crow over twenty years ago, but that’s neither here nor there.  Besides, Eric Draven never once … Continue reading

Treasure-chest-of-Horror-2012-movie-1

SYNOPSIS:

Percival Pirate goes on a journey to discover his Grandpappy’s hidden treasure chest. What he believes is treasure turns out to be four never before seen horror films.

REVIEW:

TREASURE CHEST OF HORRORS: it’s like an unofficial sequel to VHS. It’s an anthology flick . . . and each story is understood to unfold from an old VCR. There are no sleazoids finding scary tapes in the act of burglary, though. Instead, a … Continue reading
