Artful horror is rarely ever uplifting material.  Jim Mickle’s “We Are What We Are” and Jeremy Gardner’s “The Battery” were the two most beautifully rendered films I’ve had the pleasure of reviewing this past year, but … Continue reading

melancholia-2011

SYNOPSIS:

REVIEW:

Director Lars von Trier has a style that not all may agree with. Though in his latest effort titled Melancholia, he does achieve taking you on a journey that has you contemplating and guessing every step of the way. I’m often at war in my own views as to what … Continue reading

A portrait of contemporary youth culture, where the lines between reality and fiction are blurred with often frightening results.

REVIEW:

From out of the Artsploitation Films collective of releases arrives a somewhat hallucinary film titled” Toad Road”. The film was acquired by SpectreVision, an Elijah Wood company.
