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. [...]
Voices From the Grave Review
Directors Laurence Holloway and Richard Stoudt’s new film, Voices From the Grave, brings us a horror anthology that has everything we would expect plus more.
I have to say that for a lower budget film, the stories in Voices really move at a pace that you wouldn’t expect and despite some acting and voice overs being less than stellar, the story is captivating and fun.
Each of the three segments are fun with no real weak links among them. [...]
Anyone who pays any kind of attention to the horror genre already knows about the V/H/S and The ABCs of Death franchises, but there is a brilliant anthology film that I fear is going under too many people’s radars. Produced by Jesse Baget and featuring work by a multitude of directors, Zombieworld is gory as hell and an all out blast!
Like the other anthology series I already mentioned, Zombieworld features numerous directors tackling their own short films, which are [...]
