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.
Paul is a military veteran [...]
Terror 5 Review
Having seen two new horror anthologies in the same amount of days, I might be tempted to say that their popularity is on the rise once again. While this format has always been a favorite of mine, they aren’t always executed successfully.

My favorite thing about the movies they release is that they are all vastly different from one another. Since 2012, there have been gory horrors, satirical horror comedies, and hard-to-watch drama thrillers, all under the same Artsploitation banner. Where does their newest release, Adolfo J. Kolmerer’s Snowflake, fall [...]
