Brutal Massacre: A Comedy Review
Growing up, I hated horror comedies. I couldn’t understand why anyone would try to mix humor and dread together into this strange amalgamation of emotions. As the years progressed, I ended up being introduced to a whole slew of films from this sub-genre that I actually quite enjoyed and my hatred slowly deteriorated. If done right, comedic horror films can be some of the best ones around. Read on as I discuss whether or not I still feel that way [...]
American Zombieland Review
As I continue to try and reach some sort of consistency with my movie reviews, I manage to find more and more films that I have no recollection of ever obtaining. Tonight’s viewing pleasure goes to another that I knew nothing about beforehand, George Bennett’s American Zombieland.
Sam (Dave Mussen, Trafficked) is an aspiring filmmaker who, after being rejected by yet another film festival, scores the chance of a lifetime when he decides to make the [...]
The Hunt Review
The other day I wrote a review for the last film that I had seen in a movie theater before this current global pandemic hit us all. Now, as I slowly attempt to get back into writer mode fully, I find it fitting to write about the first film I watched digitally once my quarantine took effect. I’m referring to Craig Zobel’s somewhat controversial 2020 flick, The Hunt.

Come to Daddy Review
While my interest for films generally centers around their plot, there are times when the movie could literally be about anything as long as a certain director or actor is tied to it somehow. One of the names on that short list is Elijah Wood. The latest one that features his work and that I couldn’t go without seeing is Ant Timpson’s Come to Daddy.
Norval (Wood) hasn’t seen his father since he was a small child [...]
Zombieland: Double Tap Review
When the bigwigs in Hollywood deem a film to be a huge success, they usually don’t take too long to green light a sequel. I mean, it makes sense, right? If the first one made tons of money, you have to cash in one more time, before it’s too late. On the other hand, there are times when fans clamor for more and they just don’t get it. That seemed to be the case here, but we’ve finally got our [...]
Ready or Not Review
Too often have I been duped by film trailers. I can’t even recall how many times I’ve watched a teaser or full-length preview for a film to think I was going to get some awesomely entertaining film, only to have suffered through a laborious 90+ minutes. Fortunately for me, that is not the case with Matt Bettinelli-Olpin and Tyler Gillett’s Ready or Not.
