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.

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.

All the Colors of Giallo Review
Growing up in a large [and loud] Italian family, I remember my excitement when I first learned of the huge influence the culture has had on the horror genre. Learning, at a young age, that there were Italian filmmakers creating some of the most memorable films the genre has seen was something of great pride for me. Naturally, when I heard of a new documentary that takes a closer look into the evolution of the giallo film, I knew I [...]
