Happy Times Review
I’ve never been one to plan many things ahead of time. My life is pretty routine, but when I veer off path and do things out of the ordinary, I like for them to be spontaneous. I guess the same can be said for my movie viewing. Every time I try to plan out the next few films I’m going to watch, a new one comes out of nowhere and squeezes its way into said schedule. That is exactly what [...]
But It’s Already so Cold
The Dead Ones Review
We are about a third of the way into October and I remain successful on my quest to join the rest of the October marathoners in the Halloween Hall of Fame. Instead of continuing to scour Netflix or Amazon Prime for horror flicks, I decided it’d be best to grab the next title from my mountainous ‘to watch’ pile.

She’s Not an Acrobat or an Astronaut
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.

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. Continue reading to see whether or not Sebastian Rotstein and Federico Rotstein were able to pull out all the stops with their film, Terror 5.
