The outback once more becomes a place of horror as another unwitting tourist becomes the prey for crazed, serial-killing pig-shooter Mick Taylor.
Back in 2005, director Greg McLean told us the story of Mick Taylor and his predilection for slaughtering tourists who happened to wander near his home in Wolf Creek. The first film was a taut, nerve wracking exercise in horror that left audiences stunned at its brutality. Here we are … Continue reading
Drug dealing gangsters enter into battle with a narcotics task force; both parties have secret weapons.
Youâ€™ve scraped the bottom of the barrel. Youâ€™ve scraped, and scraped, and scrapedâ€”until you think you can scrape no more. Youâ€™ve seen TROLL 2, SINS OF THE FLESHAPOIDS, THEY SAVED HITLERâ€™S BRAIN. You donâ€™t believe it can possibly get any worse. I mean, how could it? How could a movie be more cheap, incoherent, and ludicrous … Continue reading
A cryptic phone call sets off a dangerous game of risks for Elliot, a down-on-his luck salesman. The game promises increasing rewards for completing 13 tasks, each more sinister than the last.
Since Richard Connell warped the man vs. man plot archetype in his 1924 short story â€śThe Most Dangerous Game,â€ť the thematic device of have-nots being treated as disposable, unwilling entertainment for those who have remains fertile ground for genre artists.Â … Continue reading
Frankenstein’s creature finds himself caught in an all-out, centuries old war between two immortal clans.
After being shuffled between two different release dates (& missing both of them) last year, the cinematic powers that be have decided to do what they were really planning to do all along and release I, Frankenstein to theaters in the cinematic graveyard otherwise known as…January. And in doing so they’ve succeeded in making January 2014 one … Continue reading
A failed amusement park owner devises a plan to commit gruesome murders in the park as a publicity stunt to sell tickets.
The plot, much like this movie, is paper thin.Â A bunch of kids work at an amusement park thatâ€™s closing down and decide to have an after hourâ€™s party on premises.Â Two men show up wandering around suspiciously when the body count starts.
Apparently the parkâ€™s owner had the bright … Continue reading
An ancient resurrected evil is loose at Western New York’s largest and most terrifying haunted attraction: the House of Horrors. It’s goal- to forever open the gates of Hell on Earth.
Where do I begin? One word can accurately describe this poorly acted attempt at a clever filmâ€”typical. And in this typicality, despite its undeniably amusing moments, it fails to deliver. This is surprising, considering the bulk of the material that … Continue reading
A Realtor must sell a house where every new resident dies under strange circumstances.
â€śDead on Appraisalâ€ť has become my all-time favorite, low budget horror movie because of the sheer insanity factor that gets kicked up here.Â The plot revolves around real estate dealer John Dante whoâ€™s trying to unload a house with a crazy history of murder and weirdness told through a trilogy of far out stories, the first and … Continue reading
This satire of the marriage equality movement is presented with a documentary feel, until an act 2 twist brings in classic horror tropes.
Marriage is not often a topic for a horror, even a horror short, and so I was most curious about what to expect from this 6-minute piece. I was pleasantly surprised and thought that the juxtaposition of romance and horror worked a treat. Because the lighting … Continue reading
A charming young cannibal tries to win over a relationship-jaded vampire within the confines of an insane asylum.
This insane horror short has got to be the only one of its kind â€“ described as a cannibal/vampire rom-com on their Facebook page, this is certainly not something many people have encountered before. (Vampires and werewolves, now thatâ€™s a different story!). I loved the quirky style of Call Me Crazy and thought … Continue reading

After trying to seduce a naĂŻve young actress, an overly cocky young horror director has the tables turned on him when the actress and her girlfriend restrain him and proceed to torture him in the same manner he had tortured people in the film that made him famous.
As most horror enthusiasts know, helpless, attractive young women often dominate the victim market. Trembling, sweaty, scantily-clad, and typically promiscuous women find themselves … Continue reading
A group of Apocalyptic fanatics must use their knowledge of apocalyptic movies to save the world from a devastating solar flare.
Over the past few years, I have become exceedingly fascinated by the idea of bad movies. The low quality of the productions combined with the poor scripting helps to highlight the effort, fun, or lack thereof in the movies. With that said, it probably comes as no surprise that I … Continue reading
When two bus crash survivors awake to discover that they are the only people left in their town, they work together to unravel the truth behind the strange events.
It is always nice to see a film that successfully combines a variety of genres, and After does just that â€“ with elements of sci-fi, horror and romance all featuring at some point or another. Indeed, I know that most films these … Continue reading

Jeez, where do I begin here?
ok well, I would like to begin by saying that I didn’t HATE this film. There are a lot of good things I can say about it…and I will…but I digress…
Let me lay out the premise for you. … Continue reading
