No matter how many times I may stray, I always find my way back to the slasher sub-genre. While I love all things horror, from werewolves to aliens, the slashers are the ones I have the most fun with it. Today’s journey into slasher territory was a new one for me, Daniel Liatowitsch and David Todd Ocvirk’s Kolobos.

The House Review
If it weren’t for Artsploitation Films, I would never become aware of some very talented filmmakers from around the world. The company is constantly supplying genre fans new releases from all corners of the globe, some that end up becoming instant favorites of mine. Their latest offering is Reinert Kiil’s The House.

Vampire flicks are few and far between these days. Even when they do present themselves, they are usually of the lower-budget persuasion and not the most enjoyable to watch. That couldn’t be further from the truth, however, with Sung-hoon Kim’s latest film, Rampant.

I was never good at answering those “who is your favorite” questions. The most difficult for me is when it comes to something like favorite director. In recent years, however, one filmmaker that sticks out in my mind much more than others is Gareth Evans. I recently learned of his first-ever feature film, Footsteps, and decided to give it a watch.
Andrew is in a downward spiral after his father is in a terrible accident. Afraid to [...] “You’ll Soon Get the Hang of It”
The Cloverfield Paradox Review
I am not a football fan whatsoever. I use the Superbowl as a way to get together with family and/or friends who I don’t get to see too often, eat some good food, and have a good time. With that said, the only thing I ever really remember about the big game is a handful of worthy commercials. One commercial from last year’s event that sticks out most clearly is the announcement/trailer for Julius Onah’s The Cloverfield Paradox.
The[...] “We’re Definitely Not in Kentucky Anymore”
Hotel Inferno Review
My recent journey into the history of Italian horror cinema reminded me of some films that I have been meaning to watch for years. While the ones I am referring to aren’t considered giallo by any means, they are created by Italian filmmakers. One of the films I’m referring to is Giulio De Santi’s Hotel Inferno.
Hitman Frank Zimosa is hired for what he considers a simple job — head to a location and take out an [...] “I Just Feel Cool”
