The Mimic Review
As a long time collector and, in more recent years, ‘film critic,’ it was inevitable that I’d stack up movie after movie without getting to watch all of them. From time to time, I start digging through these piles and after what seems like hours, I finally decide what to watch next. Today’s mood struck me as a perfect time to give Jung Huh’s ghost story, The Mimic, a chance.

Cold Ground Review
There was a time when all I watched was found footage films. A few years back, it seemed as though everyone and their mother was making them. Trust me, there were a lot of duds to sift through. Thankfully, there were also a lot of gems, too. Read on to find out where Fabien Delage’s Cold Ground fits in amongst the pack.

Bonehill Road Review
One of my most recent reviews was of a movie directed by independent filmmaker, Todd Sheets. While it wasn’t my favorite low-budget flick of recent times, it had a lot of potential. For that reason, I was excited to check out another of his features, which also happens to have received a recent home video release. Read on to see how Bonehill Road measures up.

The Predator Review
Happy New Year to all of you sick and depraved horror nuts out there! Here’s to hoping that 2019 is full of good health, happiness, and tons of horror and sci-fi goodness! There are still a ton of flicks that I need to cross off of my 2018 watch list, so let’s start the new year off with another from the past few months, Shane Black’s The Predator.

Although filmmakers Sonny Laguna and Tommy Wiklund released another film on home video earlier this year, it’s been quite some time since I’ve watched anything by the co-directors. Their past projects have been a bit of a mixed bag for me, but I was still pretty damn excited to see what these two have cooked up for us once again. Was their 2015 film Animalistic a good film to end 2018 off with? Read on to find out…
Halloween 2018 Review
It’s not often that I get to sit and enjoy what would be considered a “mainstream” horror film. Sure, they are out there, but for the most part, I am watching direct-to-home release independent features. There’s nothing wrong with that, but it is extremely nice to take a break from those from time to time to watch something more ‘polished.’ This brings me to the mother of all horror films in 2018, in my humble opinion, David Gordon Green’s Halloween.
