Ouji-2014-movie-banner

SYNOPSIS: A group of friends must confront their most terrifying fears when they awaken the dark powers of an ancient spirit board. REVIEW: Universal Pictures team up with Hasbro to bring the board game “Oujia” to cinematic life much like Battleship (2013) but with a far reduced budget and an equal reduction of imagination, passion and effort. The resulting film, Ouija, represents everything that is wrong with modern horror. It waters down the horror for … Continue reading

insidious_movie_2010-3

SYNOPSIS: A family looks to prevent evil spirits from trapping their comatose child in a nether realm called The Further. REVIEW: The definition for the word “Insidious” is basically “Intended to entrap”. And that is exactly what James Wan’s latest offering “Insidious” did to The Black Saint.
