Synopsis: A musical theater troupe is stalked by a deranged killer, all to music!

When I first heard of Jerome Sable’s Stage Fright (2014), my initial reaction was that it was a remake of Michele Soavi’s superb 1987 directorial debut of the same name. After all, the genre has been overrun of late with remakes and reimaginings to keep up with the demands of home video and video-on-demand. More horror product and an … Continue reading

The title character is portrayed with understated grace by actor John Amplas as a young man whose uncle is convinced that he … Continue reading
