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 [...]
ABCs of Death 2 Review
I am completely on board with the anthology craze that the horror genre has been seeing the past few years. Hell, it’s produced some pretty great releases. Because every release seems to try to outdo the others floating around out there, filmmakers are getting pretty ambitious. Perhaps this is most evident in the ABCs of Death franchise. I remember being really disappointed with the first film release back in 2012, but I think I have grown to appreciate things differently [...]
Tales From the Crypt Review
I believe it was around Christmas time last year, perhaps in January even, I got my hands on DVD sets of complete seasons of the television show, Tales From the Crypt. I remember seeing episodes I never knew existed and enjoying them for the very first time. One of these great tales was “And All Through the House” about an escaped maniac who was running around in a Santa Claus outfit. Interestingly enough, this same story, taken from the [...]
Creeping Crawling Review
I hate to say it, but I’ve come to expect the worst when watching independent horror films. I usually can’t get past the low-budget cameras, the sub-par acting, and everything else you find in your average indie project. There are, however, some very impressive hidden gems out there in the scene, looking to be discovered. One of these gems is the anthology film, Creeping Crawling, written and directed by Jon Russell Cring and Tracy Nichole Cring.
A pair of [...]
The Perfect House Review
There have been plenty of awesome anthology films in the horror genre over the years. From Creepshow and Body Bags to the more recent Trick ‘r Treat and V/H/S/, most great anthologies bring something new and refreshing to the table. The same can be said for Kris Hulbert and Randy Kent’s 2012 The Perfect House.
A newly married couple are taking a tour of what they hope will be their new dream home. As the overly sexy real [...]
The Twilight Zone: Essential Episodes Review
Horror/sci-fi and non-horror/sci-fi fans alike are all aware of the late 50’s/early 60’s anthology television show, The Twilight Zone.

To commemorate the show’s 55th anniversary, RLJ Entertainment and Image Entertainment have released a 2-disc DVD set of the series’ most essential episodes.
Covering many topics in the horror, fantasy, and science fiction genres, The Twilight Zone [...]
