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.

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.

The Intruder Review
You might have noticed from my last review, I am a huge proponent of mainstream wide releases of horror films, remake or otherwise. Even if they are not the greatest the genre has to offer occasionally, they still manage to pull off things that a lot of the lower-budgetted films cannot. The latest to pique my interest is Deon Taylor’s The Intruder.
