Train to Busan Review
There were a ton of horror films released in 2016. Like every year, there are of course, the good, the bad, and the ugly. I wish I could say I’ve seen them all, but we all know that this is close to impossible with real life getting in the way of movie watching. There were, however, a few last-minute releases that were making waves amongst horror fans that I knew I just had to see sooner rather than later. One [...]
Burial Ground Review
Even though it may seem like a more recent trend, an overabundance of zombie films is no new thing to the horror genre. The 1980s are known as the golden age of the slasher film, but it was really the golden era for zombie flicks, as well — the majority of which were produced and released in Europe. One of those Italian splatter films was Andrea Bianchi’s Burial Ground.

Night of the Living Deb Review
When I was younger, you could not get me to watch a horror film that was laced with comedy. To me, it was impossible to meld the two distinctive genres together successfully. Sure, there was The Evil Dead and Peter Jackson’s Dead Alive, but those were on another level. I have changed my stance on the matter since then, however; Filmmakers have made leaps and bounds in their genre-infusing abilities, especially when it comes to zombie comedies — zom-coms, [...]
The Chilling Review
It has officially been Spring for about two weeks now. The problem it seems is that Mother Nature either didn’t get the memo or decided to extend April Fools Day this year. Here in New York, it is currently 36 degrees with winds up to 25 miles per hour. Looking out at the snow-covered trees, I couldn’t think of a more fitting film to watch than Deland Nuse and Jack Sunseri’s The Chilling.

Contracted: Phase II Mini-Review
Contracted: Phase II picks up directly where the first one ends; Samantha (Najarra Townsend) has come full circle with the disease and is gunned down in the street. It doesn’t take long for all of her interactions from the previous film to start having dire consequences. Riley (Matt Mercer, Madison County, Auteur) is now feeling the effects of the disease and races against the clock to search for a vaccine.
Man, oh man, did Josh Forbes and Craig [...]
The last few films that I’ve seen starring Elijah Wood have been some of the most original genre films I’ve witnessed in a very long time. Needless to say, when his project about a virus outbreak at an elementary school was announced, I was more excited than words can describe. When I started spotting initial reviews of the film, however, the opinions didn’t seem to coincide with what I had come to expect. I heard some pretty negative things, but [...]
I never thought I’d see the day that one of the greatest action stars of all time would be featured in a zombie film. Sure, we’ve seen the likes of Brad Pitt in virus/outbreak/zombie movies, but seeing the former Governator himself, Arnold Schwarzenegger, in Henry Hobson’s Maggie has blown me away.
Marguerite (Abigail Breslin) is one of the many suffering from the necroambulist virus that has been spreading like wildfire across the states. After two weeks of searching for her, [...]
