Those Are the Rules

Ready or Not Review

Too often have I been duped by film trailers. I can’t even recall how many times I’ve watched a teaser or full-length preview for a film to think I was going to get some awesomely entertaining film, only to have suffered through a laborious 90+ minutes. Fortunately for me, that is not the case with Matt Bettinelli-Olpin and Tyler Gillett’s Ready or Not.

The Plot

Grace has married the man of her dreams and wants to make a good [...]

It’s For the Family

Pilgrim Review

I may have things a little backwards here. Since I’m a firm believer in the saying “it’s better late than never,” I decided to squeeze a Thanksgiving-related review in here before going full-on Christmas mode. With that said, continue on to read my thoughts about Marcus Dunstan’s Pilgrim.

The Plot

In hopes of bringing her family closer, Anna has invited a group of Thanksgiving re-enactors to her home for the holiday. Never breaking character, the new guests take some [...]

It’s a Little More Than Enjoyin’ Some Elvis

Clownado Review

As much as I love serious films that require you to pay close attention and keep a watchful eye over every little detail, it is way more fun to turn on a horror flick that you can mindlessly watch with no real commitment whatsoever. That is what I hoped for with Todd Sheets’ Clownado and I am happy to report that it is everything I expected and more!

The Plot

After brutally murdering her lover, Savannah gets her revenge on [...]

Thanksgiving has come and gone and I have sufficiently stuffed myself for an entire four days.

The film I chose to help me do just that is Cameron Macgowan’s Red Letter Day.

The Plot

Melanie and her two children are adjusting to their new lives in the quiet community of Aspen [...]

I Was Mid-Jam Right Now

47 Meters Down: Uncaged Review

One thing I always take flak for is the fact that I don’t know how to swim. For some reason, people find this hard to believe. Personally, I’m fine with it, but it does make going to the beach a bit less fun. I do take solace knowing that I have less of a chance of getting attacked and eaten by some murderous great white sharks though. Unfortunately, the same can not be said for the characters in Johannes Roberts’ [...]

Get That Big Ass Fish Out Here

Harpoon Review

Horror fans have it good in the year 2019. There are countless boutique labels putting out tons of films, from the most popular to the most obscure. The biggest fish in this sea of genre films are of course Arrow Video, Scream Factory, Vinegar Syndrome, and a handful of others. There are other companies pumping out some great stuff, however; Ones that don’t make as much noise, but perhaps should. The latest film presented by Dread is clearly evidence of [...]
