With still a few months to go, 2019 has already been a pretty good year for horror cinema. I think I’ve gone to the movies more this year than any of the previous five or so and I really haven’t walked out of the theater disappointed yet. One film that was great the first time around and even more so after a re-watch, is Tate Taylor’s Ma.

Unlisted Owner Review
It doesn’t happen often, but I am occasionally approached by filmmakers, offering me an opportunity to check out their work. I have seen the good, the bad, and the ugly at this point, so I am always open to give someone’s newest project a chance without much hesitation. This time around, it was director Jed Brian’s Unlisted Owner on the chopping block.

Ghosts of Mars Review
While most diehard horror fans have their own favorite directors, most every day moviegoers won’t recognize their names. There are, however, names that have become synonymous with the genre, even for casual fans. One of those names is, of course, John Carpenter.

In a distant future, a Mars police [...]
The Velocipastor Review
My last few expeditions into independent horror territory have been less than enjoyable, to say the least. I must be a glutton for punishment because I continue to head back out there and see what else lies ahead in low-budget filmland. Luckily, few still exist that are worth my time. The latest is Brendan Steere’s The Velocipastor.

Bigfoot Blood Trap Review
My last couple of reviews have been of films with much larger financial backing than most of the normal stuff you’d find on Repulsive Reviews. After a little break, I felt that I was finally ready to jump back into some indie horror and see what some of these up-and-coming filmmakers have to offer. Read on to see if John Orrichio’s Bigfoot Blood Trap was the right one to jump back in with.

Blood Paradise Review
We are in a day and age where we are delivered more content than can possibly be digested. Luckily, I’ve positioned myself in a way that I come across more films than your average viewer by way of the lesser known boutique labels, indie directors, etc. The latest to cross my path is Patrick von Barkenberg’s Blood Paradise.
