Film Review: Chasing the Devil (2014)

Chasing-The-Devil-2014-Mark-Haber-2

REVIEW:

Demonic possession has been getting a lot of play in Redbox kiosks and Netflix queues these days.  Since “The Exorcist” threw down the gauntlet by inspiring mass hysteria and controversy in 1973, it has not … Continue reading

Film Review: Stage Fright (2014)

Stage-Fright-2014-movie-Jerome-Sable-Minnie-Driver-8

SYNOPSIS:

A snobby musical theater camp is terrorized by a blood-thirsty killer who hates musical theater.

REVIEW:

Although the words “Horror” & “Musical” aren’t exactly bosom buddies there have been a few memorable films that dared to combine the two and attempt to make something memorable. Although most would immediately assume that “The Rocky Horror Picture Show” (1975) is the great granddaddy of the sub genre, I would consider Ray Dennis Steckler’s “The … Continue reading

Film Review: Like a Doll (short film) (2014)

SHORT_FILM_Like-a-Doll.mp4.0006

SYNOPSIS:

2014 French short horror film directed by Joseph Catté

REVIEW:

I’ve long believed that the French make some of the most f*cked up horror movies ever released (how about Baise Moi, Irreversible, Inside, Martyrs, In My Skin – to name just a few!) and Like a Doll – despite being only 5 minutes long – seems to fall comfortably into this idea as well.

The story itself is told with subtlety and much … Continue reading

Love-me-Deadly-Jacques-Lacerte-1973-Movie-5

SYNOPSIS:

A coven of devil-worshipping necrophiliacs moves to Los Angeles and sets up their base of operations out of a funeral home.

REVIEW:

If you’re looking for an out-there introduction to a movie, there aren’t many better options than the first ten minutes of director Jacques Lacerte’s 1973 (and apparently only) movie, Love Me Deadly. It opens with a funeral, friends and relatives shedding tears over the loss of their loved one. Each … Continue reading

Rabid-Love-2013-movie-Paul-J.-Porter-4

SYNOPSIS:

Five recent college grads go for one last vacation in the woods during the summer of 1984 and one of them is infected with a mad scientist’s synthetic rabies virus.

REVIEW:

One of the most intriguing areas of horror film making is the low budget horror film. These are moves that end up being either complete garbage made solely to make a movie, or a calling card for aspiring artists who want … Continue reading

Event-15-2013-Alpha-alert-movie-Matthew-Thompson-1

SYNOPSIS:

Three soldiers get trapped in an elevator when terrorists set off a dirty bomb. But when White escapes, her world turns upside down as she realizes nothing is what it seems.

REVIEW:

As a big fan of psychological horror, Event 15 ticked a lot of boxes for me. It explored relationships between people in a highly stressful situation, as well as throwing a few curve balls in there to keep the audience … Continue reading

SYNOPSIS:

Emanuel (Kaya Scodelario), a troubled young woman, becomes preoccupied with her mysterious new neighbor (Jessica Biel), who bears a striking resemblance to her dead mother.

REVIEW:

This is a dark drama exploring issues of loss, motherhood and secrets, and there’s an intensity to this film that some might find unsettling. I’m not entirely sure if the more surrealistic elements of the film worked, but there was certainly a fresh and creepy quality present … Continue reading
