Film Review: Come Back To Me (2014)

comeb

SYNOPSIS:

Sarah & Josh are married suburbanites. After a car accident, Sarah suffers blackouts & ends up pregnant though Josh is sterile. As her life spirals she hides a camera in her home & unlocks a horrific secret with far-reaching consequences.

REVIEW:

Based on a book (The Resurrectionist) by Wrath James White, Writer/Director Paul Layden’s Come Back To Me is something of an odd bird. It almost seems to be two separate films … Continue reading

Film Review: The House on Pine Street (2015)

The-House-on-Pine-Street-2015-movie-Aaron-Keeling-(10)

SYNOPSIS:

A psychological horror about a young woman coping with an unwanted pregnancy after moving into a seemingly haunted house.

REVIEW:

I would like to state for the record that this film has bothered me more than any film I have seen before. I suppose that is the true mark of a horror movie:to make the viewer uncomfortable.

our story begins with an expecting couple, Jennifer and Luke (Emily Goss, Taylor Bottles) moving … Continue reading

Cut-2014-movie-David-Rountree-(8)

Nothing is as it seems as an ex-con and aspirant filmmaker set out to manufacture a horror film by scaring real people; however, when it goes too far and someone actually dies, the pair decide that killing for real on film is the way to make a truly terrifying movie.

REVIEW:

One of the most affecting aspects of horror that can be milked without ever losing its creep factor is the concept … Continue reading

Film Review: Once Bitten (1985)

Once-Bitten-1985-movie-Howard-Storm-(3)

SYNOPSIS:

A vampire Countess needs to drink the blood of a virgin in order to keep her eternal beauty. It seems that all is hopeless, until she bumps into Mark Kendall.

REVIEW:

When I think of 1980s vampire movies, three movies that immediately come to mind are The Lost Boys, Near Dark, and Vampire’s Kiss. Each of those three movies have managed to stay in the minds of fanboys for many reasons. They are … Continue reading

Film Review: The Power Rangers NSFW (short film) (2015)

The-Power-Rangers-NSFW-short-film-(7)

SYNOPSIS:

Deboot of the Power Rangers. My take on the FAN FILM. Not a pilot, not a series, not for profit, strictly for exhibition. This is a bootleg experiment not affiliated or endorsed by Saban Entertainment or Lionsgate nor is it selling any product. I claim no rights to any of the characters (don’t send me any money, not kickstarted, this film is free). This is the NSFW version. An alternate safe version … Continue reading

Film Review: Chill The Killing Game (2013)

Chill-The-Killing-Games-2013-movie-Noelle-Bye-(9)

SYNOPSIS:

When a group of college students attempt to turn an ill-fated campus tradition into a viral-game, the players become trapped in an all too real battle for survival against a violent masked assailant.

REVIEW:

So this is a story about a game called Chill. Pretty simple game, really. You draw lots from a box, and whoever gets “yes” is a killer, and everyone else must try to escape while trying to figure … Continue reading

Film Review: Cannibal Fog (2014)

Cannibal-Fog-2014-movie-Jonas-Wolcher-(2)

SYNOPSIS:

First bite gives you focus, third bite gives you pleasure, fifth bite – Cannibal Fog.

REVIEW:

Cannibal Fog is a Swedish film by writer/director Jonas Wolcher about cannibals, this I do know for sure. Now, there are a lot of foreign language horror films where not a word of English is spoken throughout the entire running time, but someone who did not understand the native language could still understand the … Continue reading

Film Review: Toxin (2015)

Toxin-2015-movie-Jason-Dudek-(3)

SYNOPSIS:

A pharmaceutical company recruits a well-known scientist to help develop a vaccine against a deadly virus.

REVIEW:

If reality truly did imitate art, our wacky governments would be precariously on the cusp of unleashing Armageddon upon the world with clandestine experiments in biological warfare. Life as we know it could be a well-intentioned animal rights group (“28 Days Later”) or one panicked soldier (“The Stand”) away from becoming life as the cavemen knew … Continue reading

Film Review: Foreclosure (2014)

Foreclosure-2014-movie-Richard-Ledes-(2)

SYNOPSIS:

The story of a broken family striving to stay together while a curse and the ghosts of a haunted house try to tear them apart.

REVIEW:

Haunted houses are the new zombies.

Though there remains no foreseeable shortage of the undead baddies gracing our screens anytime soon, isolated homesteads with dark histories are as abundant now as they were in the William Castle days of Illusion-O Vision. Coincidentally, many of our current celluloid ghost … Continue reading

Film Review: Malignant (2013)

Malignant-2013-movie-Brian-Avenet-Bradley-(8)

SYNOPSIS:

After the death of his wife, a grieving man becomes the victim of a horrific experiment to cure his addiction.

REVIEW:

There are few cinematic sins that frustrate more than a lapse in logic that is never overcome nor even confronted. Though such thematic flaws are often ignored when the film in question is garbage, they can torpedo an otherwise competent production straight out of the gate. I despise those initial unanswered questions … Continue reading

Film Review: Abstraction (2013)

Abstraction-2013-movie-Prince-Bagdasarian-(1)

SYNOPSIS:

An intense action crime drama revolving around the heist of a half a million dollar painting.

REVIEW:

Let me start this review by saying that Eric Roberts has been in a whole lot of stuff over the past few years that nobody cares about or even knows exists. He’s one of those actors who will do any role put in front of them. People might say that about some other, more popular actors, … Continue reading

Film Review: C Me Dance (2009)

C-Me-Dance-2009-movie-Greg-Robbins-(8)

SYNOPSIS:

A drama centered on a teenage girl who has trained her entire life to dance for the Pittsburgh Ballet.

REVIEW:

Let me just open here by saying that I am not a religious person in any way shape or form. Therefore, I do feel that there is the possibility that the messages that this movie was trying to send across are some what completely lost on me.

The movie C Me Dance … Continue reading

The Babadook-2014-banner-horror-film

SYNOPSIS:

A single mother, plagued by the violent death of her husband, battles with her son’s fear of a monster lurking in the house, but soon discovers a sinister presence all around her.

REVIEW:

The buzz around The Babadook should not be taken lightly. This film which screened at Sundance blew me away in its inventive and thrilling style. Director Jennifer Kent with little to no budget has made one of the best….maybe even … Continue reading

Film Review: Spiders (2013)

Spiders-3d-2013

SYNOPSIS:

Eight Legs Three Dimensions One Disaster.

REVIEW:

You can’t get much more “too” the point with a movie titled: “Spiders”. “Spiders” I have been hearing about now for the last year, mostly due to an aggressive marketing campaign. I went into the film knowing that it did have a decent production and budget and in some cases even made a theatre run.

Heck, let’s be real, it’s a movie about spiders, and … Continue reading

Film Review: Hell’s Ground (2007)

hells_ground_2

SYNOPSIS:

Pakistan s first splatter flick in the tradition of Friday the 13th and The Texas Chainsaw Massacre delivers spine-tingling thrills when an attractive group of teens pile into a van that runs out of gas in the middle of a dark mysterious forest. Their ghoulish nightmare begins when rotting fresh-eating zombies and a decapitated head-toting screaming banshee-like hitchhiker begin to terrorize them at every turn. But when a mysterious figure … Continue reading
