Refuge is a suspense-thriller about a family struggling to survive in the wake of a great catastrophic event.
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 donâ€™t … Continue reading
Following up the successful “P.O.E.: Poetry of Eerie”, some of the original filmmakers regrouped for this newest experiment which aims to bring the tales of Edgar Allen Poe to life through the distinct lens of Italian horror with spoken English. While the original film’s focus was the poetic and macabre dimension of the infamous Boston author, this sequel focuses instead on the bloody, violent and disturbing. Stories include ‘The Pit and the Pendulum’, … Continue reading

An American tourist in Bangkok encounters a mysterious group of web performers harboring a terrible secret
Itâ€™s hard to talk about Cam2Cam without feeling like youâ€™re talking about a product of work thatâ€™s really two distinct short films, with a smattering of shared actors and have been stitched together by Director Joel Soisson (Piranha 3DD). And thereâ€™s good reason for this as our opening kill â€“ the kind of … Continue reading

A group of friends who venture into the remote Texas woods for a party weekend find themselves stalked by Bigfoot.
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 SĂˇnchez (Blair witch, Altered) that dares … Continue reading
A hole in the Ozone layer turns some rednecks into flesh-eating mutants.
If you really think about it (and I know you want to), itâ€™s kind of surprising that with the recent cash-in on everything zombie, we havenâ€™t seen much from the mutant/mutation sub-genre. Really, theyâ€™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
“At night and on weekends, four men in a suburban garage have built a cottage industry of error-checking devices. But they know that there is something more. There is some idea, some mechanism, some accidental side effect that is standing between them and a pure leap of innovation. And so, through trial and error they are building the device that is missing most. However, two of these men find the device and … Continue reading
A group of friends pays a late-night visit to the city morgue to surprise Amy (Harris) on her birthday. But the surprise is on them when the one-eyed corpse of brutal psychopath Jacob Goodnight (Jacobs) unexpectedly rises from a cold sub-basement slab. Their wild party quickly turns into a terrifying slay-fest as the sadistic mass-murderer resumes his savage rampage complete with hooks, surgical knives and power saws.
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

Clive Barker directs the film, which is based on his novel Cabal.
It should … Continue reading
When a body is found in the woods outside the quiet town of Morningside, NJ, Sheriff Tom Haulk and Deputy Klara Austin embark on a desperate race against time to catch the killer, pitting them against friends, enemies and even each other.
The title alone makes me happy. it sounds like a film that should really stink on ice, which is the kind of film I love.
Our story takes place … Continue reading
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.
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
Manolo, a young man who is torn between fulfilling the expectations of his family and following his heart, embarks on an adventure that spans three fantastic worlds where he must face his greatest fears.
Book of Life, a supernatural-tinged animated feature from producer Guillermo del Toro and director Jorge Gutierrez, is pure imagination on a stick, colorful, inventive, touching and funny. The minds behind this film, written by Gutierrez … Continue reading

As deadly weather settles over Europe, it becomes apparent a new ice age awaits. An American Air Force pilot and his new wife must race across the continent to rescue the pilot’s two children.
100 DEGREES BELOW ZERO is another Asylum Studios (today’s answer to New World Pictures, but nowhere near as cool) flick. This studio takes blockbuster popcorn movies, re-does them, shamelessly, with a third of the budget, and they end … Continue reading
