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.

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.

Horror fans have it good in the year 2019. There are countless boutique labels putting out tons of films, from the most popular to the most obscure. The biggest fish in this sea of genre films are of course Arrow Video, Scream Factory, Vinegar Syndrome, and a handful of others. There are other companies pumping out some great stuff, however; Ones that don’t make as much noise, but perhaps should. The latest film presented by Dread is clearly evidence of [...]
