Film Review: Infected (2013)

Infected-(2013)-Movie-poster

SYNOPSIS: A blood virus infects a small group of hunters turning a father & son trip into a fight for survival. REVIEW: Where to begin? Zombie films. There are always going to be zombie films, or films where a viral outbreak or chemical explosion turns humans into rabid beasts. Many recent ones have gone for the comedy horror option such as Zombieland and Shaun Of The Dead. Some play it straighter, an excellent recent example … Continue reading

Film Review: Species (1995)

Species.1995-movie-4

SYNOPSIS: A message from outer space contains instructions on how to modify human DNA. REVIEW: “Species” is a hard film to be ambivalent about for many people. It’s been my experience that whenever I mention Species in some circles that I usually get a “Oh God that movie sucked.” or I get “Damn, that movie was so awesome! That Sil chick was hot!” Yeah, those kinds of responses. I don’t think I’ve ever been in … Continue reading

Film Review: Piranhaconda (2011)

Piranhaconda-2011-movie-8

SYNOPSIS: Part Snake! Part Fish! All Killer! REVIEW: At personal risk to the ragged shred of integrity I still grip like a sleeping baby clutches a binky, I must confess that I have a soft spot deep in the cockles of my heart for SyFy Channel movies. What else is there to do on a lazy weekend afternoon with a case of Pabst Blue Ribbon and no place to go? Better yourself with a good book? Pshaw, … Continue reading

Film Review: The Brazen Bull (2010)

The Brazen Bull 2010

SYNOPSIS: An ice cold tale of misguided ambition and savage revenge. Set in the bowels of an iconic derelict Los Angeles high-rise, we follow Lauren and her real-estate investing fiancĂ© as they discover first hand what happens when a madman leads not with emotion, but rather chilling rationality. The Man in question brings a heaping helping of sanity and jet-black humor to the crazy table. The result is a wonderfully off-kilter horror/thriller that never goes … Continue reading

the-bleeding-dvd-artwork

SYNOPSIS: Surrounded by carnage, slaughter, brutal crashes and total mayhem, Shawn Black is in a race to save the world from pure evil. REVIEW Into every generation a slayer is born, not the spunky little lady we love and know as Buffy, but the muscular ex-soldier known as Shawn Black.
