I didn’t know a whole lot about Flu before I saw it and to be honest I really wasn’t expecting much. I just assumed that it was going to be yet another movie about a killer virus running rampant and killing off hordes of people along the same lines as Outbreak or … Continue reading

Blood-Simple-1984-Coen-Brothers-movie-1

SYNOPSIS:

A rich but jealous man hires a private investigator to kill his cheating wife and her new man. But, when blood is involved, nothing is simple.

Film Review: Buck Wild (2013)

Buck-Wild-2013-Movie-Tyler-Glodt-3

SYNOPSIS:

A hunting vacation goes horribly awry for 4 friends after they accidentally shoot the lease’s land owner.

REVIEW:

I can’t help but have a certain amount of admiration for Buck Wild, simply because it isn’t trying to be anything it’s not – it knows it’s not the best film ever, but simply embraces its lowly position on the horror totem pole. Described as a tongue-in-cheek movie, there are definite similarities to be drawn … Continue reading
