Primal Rage Review
When I’m not at work, the gym, or some family get-together, the majority of my time is spent watching and sharing my thoughts on movies. This leaves me very little time to look at what others are saying about films — which ones are good, which ones people should steer clear of. Thanks to social media, however, I am able to get a small glimpse into what is circulating around the genre. One film that I saw over and over [...]
The Dark Review
In case you haven’t noticed, I’ve been watching tons of movies lately. I’ve been able to dig into things that I, a few months ago, thought I’d never have time for. A little shifting around of my every day routine, however, has allowed me the luxury of checking out some horror flicks that otherwise would go unwatched, collecting dust on my shelves. Tonight’s feature is Justin P. Lange’s The Dark.

Streets of Vengeance Review
I ran out of shelf space for my ever-growing film collection a long time ago. The more movies I amass, the higher my stacks grow. Because of this poor choice of organization, it’s very easy for me to misplace things. I do go digging from time to time and end up seeing a release or two that catches my attention. Tonight’s attention-grabber was Paul Ragsdale and Angelica De Alba’s Streets of Vengeance.

Last week I showcased a company that puts out some amazing merchandise that all horror fans can appreciate. Luckily for us diehard collectors, there is more than one distributor out there that aides in feeding our ever-growing horror shrines. One of the best ones doing it today is, of course, NECA.
NECA, short for National Entertainment Collectibles Association, is one of the largest manufacturers of toys, statues, and other collectibles anywhere. They have released merchandise based on all of our [...]
Truth or Dare Review
I’m not sure when I first learned of this film, but I’ve been looking for a copy of it ever since. Every so often, I’d search a couple of the usual spots for a new home video release — Amazon, eBay — to no avail. The thought never came to me to just go straight to the source, the director herself! After years of waiting, I’ve finally had the pleasure of watching Jessica Cameron’s Truth or Dare.
Watching as many movies as I do these days, it becomes rather difficult to get excited too often. There are the occasional rumblings, however. The one-off posts on social media, the positive chatter. Sometimes it’s for blockbuster nationwide releases and sometimes those rumblings are for underground releases, perhaps on their way to some kind of cult status. I feel like that very well could happen with Takashi Hirose’s Brutal.
