A young journalist must investigate a mysterious videotape which seems to cause the death of anyone in a week of viewing it.

REVIEW:

To review a film as groundbreaking as “The Ring”, is to note its contribution to not only the genre, but to the Asian horror market as a whole.

The year was 2002, the Asian market was not prepared for the wave that would head their way from … Continue reading

“A Horrible Way to Die” arrives under the directorial talent of Adam Wingard who had a few great releases with “Home Sick” (2007) and “Pop Skull”(which I’ve yet to see). Though I do recommend “Home Sick” which is cult fav of mine. The movie stars the talented AJ … Continue reading

SYNOPSIS:

Set in Middle America, a group of teens receive an online invitation for sex, though they soon encounter fundamentalists with a much more sinister agenda.

REVIEW:
