I used to think of myself as a pretty cultured fan of film. I would watch foreign flicks from time to time and, at one point, thought I had a finger on the pulse of what was going on outside of the States. It wasn’t until I started Repulsive Reviews, however, that I really became aware of how many great films were really truly out there, waiting to be discovered. The latest to cross my path is Rene Eller’s We [...]
Blood Paradise Review
We are in a day and age where we are delivered more content than can possibly be digested. Luckily, I’ve positioned myself in a way that I come across more films than your average viewer by way of the lesser known boutique labels, indie directors, etc. The latest to cross my path is Patrick von Barkenberg’s Blood Paradise.

Christmas Blood Review
Literally every year since I started this site, I’ve made myself a vow to review as many Christmas-themed horror films as possible during the month of December. I have failed to do so every. single. year.
