Lilith's Hell Review

Lilith's Hell | Repulsive Reviews | Horror Movies

As someone who runs a website dedicated to reviewing films, I have the privilege of receiving emails from studios and distribution companies about upcoming releases. As you may have noticed, the time I spend watching and reviewing movies has changed over the years, going from publishing multiple reviews in a day, at one point to, now, only once a week. Because of this, I rarely even look at the emails that come flooding into my inbox.  I simply just do [...]

Smells Like Burnt Chicken

Atroz Review

Atroz | Repulsive Reviews | Horror Movies

An extremely large number of murders remain unsolved in Mexico each year, leaving those of us to wonder how the perpetrators get away with their heinous crimes. Even though there have been a countless number of horror films “based on true events,” it is possible that first-time feature film director Lex Ortega’s Atroz is one of the most accurate depictions of every day life in Mexico.

After a gruesome accident, the police commander in charge of the scene takes it [...]

That’s a Sick Sense of Humor

Hangman Review

Hangman | Repulsive Reviews | Horror Movies

There was a period in time where I was in love with the found footage sub-genre and had to get my hands on as many films that fell into the category as possible. Needless to say, I have seen the good, the bad, and the ugly. Even with all of those found footage films under my belt, however, I still reach a certain level of excitement when a new one crosses my path. How does Adam Mason’s Hangman stack up [...]

Oh Sarah McLachlan!

The Visit Review

The Visit | Repulsive Reviews | Horror Movies

Although I haven’t seen some of his most recent work, I have always been a fan M. Night Shyamalan’s older films like The Sixth Sense, Signs, and Unbreakable. Even with those great films under his belt, it seems that over the past few years, the writer and director has been getting quite a bit of negative reviews. I don’t know firsthand how his last couple of projects were, but I was certainly excited for his latest, after [...]

Find Anything Good?

Inner Demons Review

Inner Demons

Possession movies have been around for a very long time and they are not going away anytime soon. It is safe to say that the same can be said about found footage films. Naturally, this makes for a great pairing, as seen plenty of times before in films like The Last Exorcism, The Taking of Deborah Logan, The Atticus Institute, etc. Seth Grossman decided to take this idea and run with it, as well, with his newest [...]

He Looks Like a Gay Skeletor

The Jokesters Review

The Jokesters

In my last review, I stated that it was a hugely surprising disappointment to expect a great movie and to receive a crappy one. It happens all the time. What happens more rarely though is the expectation of a bad or mediocre flick, only to receive an awesome one in return. That’s exactly what happened here with AJ Wedding’s The Jokesters.

Four friends are the stars of a YouTube-like online prank show sensation called the “PrankMasters.” After a successful [...]

The House with 100 Eyes Review

The House with 100 Eyes

A little over a month ago, I reviewed the anniversary release of a documentary about the legend of snuff films entitled Snuff: A Documentary About Killing on Camera. It is only fitting that I chose this next film for review as it fits perfectly into the snuff mix. Artsploitation’s release of The House with 100 Eyes, directed by Jay Lee and Jim Roof, is a decent entry in the found footage sub-genre that brings plenty of blood and [...]
