10 Cloverfield Lane Guest Review

10 Cloverfield Lane | Repulsive Reviews | Horror Movies

Tight spaces, frogs, and being kidnapped. Those are the things that encompass what I fear the most. However, aside from the occasional tight car ride or near-fatal bullfrog encounter, those fears are seldom reached. My comfort zone was all but obliterated the night I watched 10 Cloverfield Lane.

I consider myself a sensible man, when it comes to fictitious media. I’ve always been able to remind myself what I am viewing is not real, and continue viewing it without [...]

I’m Not Afraid Anymore

The Monster Guest Review

The Monster | Repulsive Reviews | Horror Movies

I can’t say that I ever really believed in monsters. I was a fearless kid who mistrusted the real world too much to focus on unimaginable creatures. I’ve always been under the impression that the things that “could’ lurk in the shadows were never as scary as the terrors the real world might produce. Don’t get me wrong, I still cannot sleep with my feet dangling over the edge of my bed (because if monsters were real, they would live [...]

The Return of the Cox!

Stan Against Evil Season One Guest Review

Stan Against Evil | Repulsive Reviews | Horror Television

In competition with Ash vs Evil Dead, IFC released the first season of Stan Against Evil. There are many similar concepts between both shows — An older gentleman begrudgingly battles evil forces all the while spouting witty dialogue. Not saying I don’t totally dig both shows, they are both a lot of fun and they will fit nicely in my DVD collection together someday.

Stan Against Evil does feel a bit more fast-paced with the quick cuts and [...]

We’re Missing A Kidney

I Am Not a Serial Killer Guest Review

I Am Not a Serial Killer | Repulsive Reviews | Horror Movies

I am cautious about the term “indie horror;” As someone who likes independent and horror films, I appreciate that horror can be both smart and scary. ‘Terrifying’ doesn’t mean gratuitous amounts of violence or cliché jump scares anymore. It helps of course to possess those theatrical tropes, but it isn’t a deal breaker if a movie lacks the axe-wielding, gut spilling terror that is often associated with the genre. Even though I can appreciate how far horror movies have come [...]

A Lot of People Think We’re Crazy

The Invitation Guest Review

The Invitation | Repulsive Reviews | Horror Movies

When I graduated high school, I promised myself that by the time my ten-year reunion rolled around, I would gladly accept the invite just so I could show up and brag about the high profiled life I imagined for myself. I admit, I was an imaginative, nerdy, and socially awkward 18-year-old who spent more time hiding in the library than socializing with my graduating class. I hated my small town and my small school because I felt like an outsider [...]

That’s When I’ll Come Inside

Hush Guest Review

Hush | Repulsive Reviews | Horror Movies

“I can come in anytime I want. And I can get you, anytime I want. But I’m not going to. Not until it’s time. When you wish you’re dead…that’s when I’ll come inside.”

What’s worse than having a masked killer appear at your window when you’re completely isolated, living alone in the woods? Experiencing all of the above without the ability to hear anything. And that is where the heart-pounding thriller, Hush, from acclaimed writer and director, Mike Flanagan [...]

I Don’t Want to Die in Canada

Tusk Guest Review

Tusk

Funny. Gory. The most disturbing thing I’ve ever seen. Funnyman Kevin Smith directs the horror movie Tusk, based on a strange Craigslist ad he saw a few years back. It has Smith’s usual witty humor along with moments that made my jaw drop and my face cringe. It is very dialogue-heavy, as are many Kevin Smith movies, with great camerawork and amazing special effects makeup on Justin Long.

After seeing the movie and discussing it with people, something that [...]

This is My House!

The Babadook Guest Review

The Babadook

The 2005 short film, “Monster,” gets a full treatment and Jennifer Kent (director and writer) couldn’t have unleashed it at a better time, daring to stray from the canon possession tale of the slew of spooky, ghostly features (more Paranormal Activities, Oculus, The Conjuring spin-offs, etc.) Already the winner of several awards (AACTA, Australian Academy of Cinema and Television Arts Award), there is no excuse to deny The Babadook. It will only make it stronger.
