The House Review
If it weren’t for Artsploitation Films, I would never become aware of some very talented filmmakers from around the world. The company is constantly supplying genre fans new releases from all corners of the globe, some that end up becoming instant favorites of mine. Their latest offering is Reinert Kiil’s The House.
Two Nazi soldiers and their prisoner are turned around and seemingly lost in the wintry landscape of the Scandinavian mountains. Looking for refuge, they enter [...]
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. While I don’t see this year being any different, unfortunately, I can say that I did get to watch and review at least one of the many there seem to be floating around out there. That one is Reinert Kiil’s Christmas Blood.
Artsploitation Films has been releasing movies from around the world for just about seven years now. I actually own just about the entire catalog of their films in my personal collection. 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.

Since then, I’ve become a bit more brave and have ventured into a few more titles from the American Guinea Pig series. Because I’ve been on somewhat of a roll with the more graphic and explicit stuff, when the opportunity presented [...]
The seasons are changing and along with it the days are getting shorter, the temperature is dropping significantly, and the leaves are changing colors, ready to fall at any given second. These are all normal occurrences during this time of year, but perhaps this is all the beginning of something much more serious… Oh, nevermind, it only feels like that because it is the second week in a row that I’ve watched a film which takes place in a post-apocalyptic [...]
German Angst Review
A couple of years back it felt as though a new anthology film was being released every other week. Tons of great filmmakers were able to flex their skills amongst their peers in features like The ABCs of Death and V/H/S/ franchises. Like most trends in horror, the anthology wave seemed to be dying down. That is, until the great folks over at Artsploitation Films decided to give us both A Taste of Phobia and German Angst.
