Each year I see at least 36 films at the Pucheon International Fantastic Film Festival, and thankfully only about 2 out of that number are usually clunkers.

To take a look at the cover art and movie poster of Roman Nowickiâ€™s 1998 release and debut film, Fantom Kiler, one might think it looks more like a porno than a horror movie. One who thought that wouldnâ€™t be too far off. Reminiscent of a late 80â€™s/early 90â€™s … Continue reading
