German Angst Review
A couple of years back it felt as though a new anthology film was being released every other week. Tons of great filmmakers were able to flex their skills amongst their peers in features like The ABCs of Death and V/H/S/ franchises. Like most trends in horror, the anthology wave seemed to be dying down. That is, until the great folks over at Artsploitation Films decided to give us both A Taste of Phobia and German Angst.

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.
A Taste of Phobia features [...]
Around the time that Annabelle: Creation was hitting theaters, I acquired a film that also had to do with some sort of killer doll. I put it on my shelf without any real hesitation, as I figured it was just another cheap imitation looking to make a few bucks off of the possible success of the big horror sequel. This happens from time to time, so it isn’t really a surprise anymore. I was looking for something to watch this [...]

All Hallows' Eve 2 Review
It may not be the right time of year for a film so heavily based on Halloween, but is there really ever a wrong time for horror? No, I didn’t think so either. Even more so, there is never a wrong time for a flick that seems to get everything right! Enter horror anthology sequel, All Hallows’ Eve 2, featuring shorts directed by Jesse Baget, Elias Benavidez, Andrés Borghi, Jay Holben, Mike Kochansky, James and Jon Kondelik, Bryan Norton, [...]
A Christmas Horror Story Review
I’ve been doing this little horror film review gig for about four years now and every year around this time, I get in the mood to watch some good ol’ Christmas-themed horror flicks, naturally. It seems, however, that every year, Christmas comes and goes and sadly, I really never actually review any of the films that I have planned. Well, hopefully I can change that this year, starting with this bad boy, A Christmas Horror Story with segments directed by [...]
The Invoking 2 Review
Anthology films have been a part of the horror genre for decades. From the British film of the 1940’s, Dead of Night, to 1963’s Black Sabbath directed by Italian legend Mario Bava, all the way through the 70’s, 80’s, 90’s, and so on, horror anthologies have been bringing fans tales of the grotesque covering any topic you can think of. It seems that the last few years has seen a resurgence in the popularity of these types of horror [...]
Scream Machine Review
It’s obvious that writer/director/producer Scarlet Fry aka Walter Ruether III is a fan of all things horror and that can be an admirable trait in a filmmaker. However, his film Scream Machine is less of a love letter to genre greats and more of an insult.
Despite having an introduction by Lloyd Kaufman of Troma fame, this film is one big let down in all aspects of horror. Told in anthology form by two terrible hosts, Dr. Fry and Dr. [...]
