Paranormal Activity: The Ghost Dimension Review
When Ryan and Emily find a house that’s too good to be true, it seems like they really got the deal of a life time… until Ryan and his brother, Mike, stumble upon some old VHS tapes and an impressive camera. Soon after viewing the tapes and fooling with the video equipment, Ryan and Emily’s daughter, Leila, begins talking to an imaginary friend named “Tobe.” Soon, it becomes obvious that Tobe is no friend and something very strange is going [...]
Sinister 2 Review
Anyone who has been following my reviews over the years already knows that I don’t necessarily have the best memory when it comes to remembering details from any kind of story — whether it be from books, comics, film, etc, — so it should be of no surprise that I really don’t recall much of what happened in the first Sinister movie. What I do happen to remember is that I really didn’t enjoy that film and was completely underwhelmed [...]
The Vatican Tapes Review
The horror genre is a strange one to be a fan of. There are plenty of sub-genres and topics that seem to be way too over-utilized, but fortunately for the fans, there are some filmmakers out there that can still breath new life into the same old stories. Mark Neveldine was able to do just that with his latest supernatural flick, The Vatican Tapes.
Angela Holmes is your average 27-year-old, but shortly after her birthday, her boyfriend Pete (John [...]
Last Shift Review
Anyone who has been following the site since its inception knows that Roger and I have some conflicting thoughts when it comes to certain films. For instance, he thoroughly enjoyed The Babadook, while I disliked it very much; He loves all things Troma whereas I… well, let’s not even go there. The point is, whenever we discuss a new film that we’ve watched, I have to be aware of these differences and understand that just because he really liked [...]
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 [...]
There are certain directors that I enjoy so much that I’d never miss a new project by them. After his work on P2 and Maniac, one of those directors is Franck Khalfoun. His latest film, i-LIVED had tons of promise, but unfortunately, managed to fall a little flat.

Inner Demons Review
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 [...]
The Lazarus Effect Review
Science and religion are the perfect example of two things that are the antithesis of each other. The two ideas have clashed forever, not only in movies, but in real life debates all over the world. This is one of the reasons why it is the perfect basis for David Gelb’s latest film, The Lazarus Effect.
A group of scientists are working on a serum that allows medical professionals to keep patients’ brains alive long enough to resuscitate them [...]
