With Halloween right around the corner, I am trying my damnedest to get back into the role of ‘horror film critic.’ While last week I reviewed a recent Hollywood production (see The Mummy), I decided to visit the other side of the spectrum with a low-budget indie flick this week. Was Bev Land’s Lycan worth both my time and yours? Read on to find out…

Sheep Skin Review
Boy, do I love surprises! I’ve seen a couple of flicks released by Unearthed Films, which gave me the idea that I knew what I was getting into if I ever watched another one distributed by them. I absolutely hated Thanatomorphose and while I thought Collar was an okay film, it wasn’t the best indie horror I’ve ever seen. After shutting off another film put out by Unearthed recently, I pretty much decided that I was done with them all [...]
Little Dead Rotting Hood Review
Aside from the fun time I had with Sharknado 2: The Second One, I don’t have any first-hand experience with The Asylum. I do know that they are [in]famous for their mockbuster films that have mimicked some of the most popular genre films to come out. They also have made some noise, in more recent years, with their SyFy channel original series, “Z Nation.” With all of that said, I thought it was the perfect time to get another [...]
I recently reviewed a surprisingly entertaining werewolf flick that came seemingly out of nowhere. Straight off the heels of that look at Howl comes another were- flick, also somewhat out of the blue and straight to home release. This time, it is Daniel Robbins’ independent effort, Uncaged.
Shortly after turning 18, Jack (Ben Getz) gets a letter from his uncle, inviting him to stay at his cabin. His cousin, Brandon (Zack Weiner), and friend, Turner (Kyle Kirkpatrick), decide to [...]
There are a number of horror sub-genres that have been done to death (no pun intended). The ones that come to mind right away are, of course, zombie flicks, any found footage type of supernatural film, vampires, and werewolves. With that said, however, it is still possible, although rare, for a film that revolves around any of that stuff to come out and be somewhat original. Enter Paul Hyett and his latest flick. Howl is not only original, but it [...]
There have been plenty of times that I’ve searched Google for “the top 10 werewolf movies” in hopes of finding that hidden gem of a were flick that I may have missed. Those lists always seemed to contain the same flicks — An American Werewolf in London, The Howling, etc. — and I never really found anything new or exciting. The more digging I did, however, the more I learned of how deep the wolfman sub-genre actually is. [...]
Hot off the heels of a great werewolf flick, comes another review dealing with the wolfman sub-genre. In general, I try to stay away from films that have overly silly titles or plots, but occasionally, depending on my mood, will give one a shot. I’m glad I did this time around because Lowell Dean’s widely talked about WolfCop is a great watch all around!

Late Phases Team Review
Werewolves made their way to the silver screen with an unforgettable performance by arguably one of the greatest character actors of his time, Lon Chaney Jr., in the classic film The Wolf Man. Since its release in 1941, countless imitations and re-imaginings have failed to capture what made that film in particular so mesmerizing the first time we saw it. Whether it is the absolute terror we felt watching the wolf man stalk his victims or it was our [...]
