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 [...]
My last review (The Curse of Doctor Wolffenstein) showed what Nico B. and the folks behind the scenes of ReelGore Releasing are bringing to the table, so to speak — splatter flicks for all of the gore fiends out there.

Bringing new life to some of the most controversial foreign gore films of all time, Cult Epics has previously released beautifully remastered editions [...]
Nekromantik 2 Review

This next review is certainly one that can justify that title and I am more than satisfied to cover it here for all of you fine folks.
There comes in a point in the lives of all horror movie fans where 1980’s slashers just don’t cut it anymore. Research is done and obscure movies are sought after, in hopes of finding new and exciting ways to ‘scare’ oneself or that next level of disgust. That’s usually when films like Cannibal Holocaust or most recently A Serbian Film get viewed for the first time. We’ve all done it and I’m no different. Due to a brand new restoration [...]
