My Little Sister Review

My Little Sister movie review

On paper, it doesn’t seem difficult to create an effective slasher film. Like most horror sub-genres, there are a few key elements to the proper formula that, if followed precisely, should ensure a good film experience. Unfortunately, this isn’t always the case when it comes to independent filmmaking. The most recent evidence I have of this is Maurizio and Roberto del Piccolo’s My Little Sister.

The Plot

Sheila and Tom are meeting their friends in the woods for a [...]

Slaughterhouse Rulez Review

Slaughterhouse Rulez movie review

When I was younger, I absolutely loathed horror comedies. I didn’t see any place for a film to be both funny and terrifying. Sure, I made exceptions for flicks like The Evil Dead or Dead Alive. Other than those and perhaps a select few others, I wasn’t having it. Now, older and wiser, with open arms, I welcome the marriage of the two genres. The latest film that utilizes this lovely union successfully is Crispian Mills’ Slaughterhouse Rulez.

The Trigger Effect Review

The Trigger Effect movie review

While I tend to gravitate towards the gory side of the horror spectrum, I really do appreciate all types of films the genre has to offer. One part of the broad range that horror fans tend to forget about often is the “thriller.” If done right, thriller flicks can be quite entertaining. This can definitely be said about David Koepp’s The Trigger Effect.

The Plot

A solar storm has caused a massive blackout across what seems like the entire [...]

A Record of Sweet Murder Review

A Record of Sweet Murder movie review

It seems pretty rare, but once in a while, a movie comes along that you fall in love with immediately. It may be the acting or the special effects, or it may be something much different entirely. Perhaps it’s something you can’t even put your finger on. The latest film to give me this warm and fuzzy feeling is Koji Shiraishi’s A Record of Sweet Murder.

The Plot

Journalist, Soyeon, is contacted by a childhood friend after his escape [...]

Rondo Review

Rondo movie review

In one of my most recent reviews, I spoke about originality and how it must be extremely difficult for filmmakers to have any of it in this day and age. Still, I find myself impressed from time to time, when writers and directors are able to tell a story in a way that has never been done before. My most recent experience with this comes in the form of Drew Barnhardt’s Rondo.

The Plot

Paul is a military veteran [...]

Rust Review

Rust movie review

For most horror fans, there is nothing more exciting than finding new films in your favorite sub-genre. A lot of hardcore collectors and film viewers probably feel like they’ve “seen it all” already, so the promise of a new experience from a new filmmaker is always intriguing. Unfortunately, there are times when some films are better left undiscovered. That just so happens to be the case with Joe Lujan’s Rust.

The Plot

After Heather barely escapes an abandoned haunted [...]
