The-Aztec-Box-2013-movie-Serge-Bronstein-4

SYNOPSIS:

4 college students dig up an ancient Aztec relic in their own backyard, only to discover a dark force that is attached to it.

REVIEW:

Two things have come along, enabling almost anyone to make a horror movie: changes in technology and the found footage sub-genre. Anymore, all you need is a digital camera, some editing software, a friend with a midi synth, and a screenplay that invokes constant running cameras. Boom. … Continue reading

Low is a low budget psychological thriller indie that plays on the concept that you really don’t know the true person that you are talking to. Yes people might look harmless on the outside, but deep down we all have … Continue reading

Film Review: The Amazing Adventures of the Living Corpse (2012)

The-Amazing-Adventures-of-the-Living-Corpse-(2012)-movie-6

SYNOPSIS:

A somewhat self-aware zombie takes it upon himself to keep the rest of the walking dead at bay.

REVIEW:

It was only a matter of time before someone was savvy enough to bring us a comic book zombie hero.  In this humble opinion, James O’Barr had already accomplished that exact artistic feat when he created The Crow over twenty years ago, but that’s neither here nor there.  Besides, Eric Draven never once … Continue reading

Treasure-chest-of-Horror-2012-movie-1

SYNOPSIS:

Percival Pirate goes on a journey to discover his Grandpappy’s hidden treasure chest. What he believes is treasure turns out to be four never before seen horror films.

REVIEW:

TREASURE CHEST OF HORRORS: it’s like an unofficial sequel to VHS. It’s an anthology flick . . . and each story is understood to unfold from an old VCR. There are no sleazoids finding scary tapes in the act of burglary, though. Instead, a … Continue reading

On the outside Adam appears to be a normal teenager, but underneath…his mind has been so rotted by trauma from his past and the gory films he watches, that he has blurred the lines between reality and pretend! This prompts Adam to start killing people in similar ways to films he watches, making sure to put his own little spin on it

REVIEW:

There is a contemplative, perhaps brilliant film lingering beneath … Continue reading

For every movie full of boobies I’ve had to sit through in my life, thank you so much David DeCoteau for a little beefcake. Lots of well sculpted man-chest in this one, ladies. Pretty, … Continue reading

American-scream-king-2010-movie-Joel-Paul-Reisig-1

SYNOPSIS:

When two guys get a hold of a camera from a debt, they decide to make a horror movie since most of them are cheesy and cheap anyways. They know nothing about special effects or make-up so why not just kill people for real while filming their movie?
