The-Beast-2012-shortfilm

SYNOPSIS: THE BEAST is a short horror film about the internal struggle that a father faces when his young boy is afflicted with the curse of the werewolf. REVIEW: Saying that this is simply another werewolf movie doesn’t do The Beast any justice whatsoever. Yes, the main premise is very closely tied with the concept of a werewolf, but this short film focuses more on a father’s moral dilemma. Should you kill your son because … Continue reading

Children-of-Sorry-2012-movie-Jourdan-McClure-6

SYNOPSIS: A young woman embeds herself in a cult looking for answers to her sister’s disappearance, only to find a dark secret within the cult and an even darker secret within herself.

Interview: Trevor Juenger (Coyote)

FutureofHorror_005_Trevor_Juenger_500b

Low budget film making allows its creator free reign with no boundaries or rules.

This freedom to go rogue is liberating for independent horror and few take as hard a look into the human psyche as the guest … Continue reading
