Recently I joined a found footage movie group on Facebook. I usually stay away from FB groups since they always seemed to be just a place where people attack each other on their opinions and talk crap, but I was bored and thought I would try it out. After a week or two, I found out that a lot of first time movie makers will post their teaser trailers and shorts in this group. Shawn Robinson asked if he could [...]
Life of Belle Review
Masking Threshold Review
I was looking over my physical media stockpile hoping to find something new to watch. Nothing really jumped out at me, so I went online and checked out my VOD options. That is when I came across a movie called Masking Threshold; Having never heard of it before, I watched the trailer (something I try not to do generally), and it was the perfect combination of psychosis and creepiness. After watching the trailer, I couldn’t click on the rent [...]
The Hoot Owl Review
With social media as it is, it’s hard to not hear about movies, especially if you are a horror nut like myself. So as I was scrolling through my movie options last night I came across The Hoot Owl.

The Hoot Owl follows the story of a young couple, April and Scott, who along with her sister [...]

They have produced some great movies, but they are few and far between in my opinion. When I heard [...]
The Devil's Hand Review
One of my favorite sub-genres is theological horror. There are some really great movies like The Exorcist and Saint Maud, but there are also some really bad ones, as well, like The Remaining and End of Days. Seeing that Karl Mueller wrote this movie and he also wrote/directed one of my favorite found footage movies — Mr. Jones — I decided to give The Devil’s Hand a chance. Worse case scenario, I waste 86 minutes of my time [...]
I got to say, Tubi is REALLY stepping up their game with horror movies lately. It’s been my platform of choice for the past month and I have yet to see a really bad movie; I’m sure they are on there, but haven’t been disappointed yet.
Unsheltered is the directorial debut of Marcus Small and it was filmed in Orlando, Florida (my old stomping grounds). The story is told with a mix of formats — found footage (from the main [...]
