A Taste of Phobia Review
If someone were to ask me my biggest fear, I’m not sure what I would answer. It would probably be a typical response, like most — Something like fear of heights or spiders and other creepy crawlers. I guess I’m lucky in the sense that I really don’t have any crazy, irrational fears. The same cannot be said for the characters featured in the short films comprising the horror anthology, A Taste of Phobia.

The Endless Review
Last week, I wrote about a highly anticipated sequel, well-known to horror fans (see The Strangers: Prey at Night). Today, I get to talk about one that was even more highly anticipated for me, personally. Not because it is tied to a cult-classic franchise, but because of the filmmakers responsible for creating it. Justin Benson and Aaron Moorhead have made two films that I have enjoyed immensely for different reasons, so I could not be more excited to see [...]
The Strangers: Prey at Night Review
In all of the years I’ve been watching horror films, I can’t recall a more anticipated and sought after sequel. Think about it. In this genre, fans loathe remakes with ferocious passion and sequels are not that far behind on the hatred meter. At least, that’s how it used to be. It always seemed to be the opposite when it came to The Strangers, however. It feels as if as soon as the first one was released and reached [...]
Moon Child Review
Since I started reviewing films, years ago, I have come to know Cult Epics as one of the best distributors of genre flicks; Everything from sound and picture quality to packaging and bonus features are top-notch on the few releases I own from them. With that said, I assumed I couldn’t go wrong by adding another of their releases to my collection. My latest Cult Epics acquisition is Agustí Villaronga’s Moon Child.
Generally, I utilize the second paragraph in [...]
Tremors: A Cold Day in Hell Review
I can’t necessarily explain why, but I’ve always been a huge fan of franchises in the horror genre. The more sequels in a series, the better, I say. This is especially true in the current state of horror, or film in general really, where everything and anything is being given the remake treatment. Thankfully, instead of getting a Tremors reboot, we continue to receive films that expand the lore originally created almost 30 years ago with the release of the [...]
Insidious: The Last Key Review
I’ve been on a huge giallo kick lately and while the films of Fulci, Argento, and the rest of the maestros of the golden age of horror will forever be held in high regard, it is nice to get back into something more modern. I have really enjoyed this franchise ever since the first installment and I am happy to finally view its latest chapter, directed by Adam Robitel, Insidious: The Last Key.
Master clairvoyant, Elise Rainier (Lin Shaye), [...]
After months of watching movies “just for fun,” I figured it’s time to dust off the old keyboard and share a few of my thoughts on one. I’m not sure I even remember how to do this, but what better way to dive back into the swing of things than with Ted Geoghegan’s newest film, Mohawk.
During a time when the Brits and Americans were at war, the Mohawk tribe is doing its best to remain neutral. This is [...]
Hell of the Living Dead Review
I think you guys would realize this by now…but I have a LOT of free times on my hand and I mean a LOT of it. So once again, it is time for gaming and VRV and I must choose a film from my watch list. Well, did I find a gem of a film today. Let me take you back to 1980 with this time machine, so that we can take a close look at the film Virus – [...]
