I loved everything about Resolution after my first viewing of it. The writing was intriguing and funny, the acting was fantastic, and the entire thing was unpredictable. The only problem with it was that damn ending, the ending that kept me wanting more. Although it is completely unrelated and has no connection whatsoever plot-wise, Aaron Moorhead and Justin Benson’s Spring is that more that I was waiting for.

The Thing from Another World Review
Most horror fans of my generation grew up loving the John Carpenter film The Thing. Its incredible cast, mounting paranoia, and utterly astounding creature effects, courtesy of Rob Bottin, made a lasting impression on our young minds. While the film pushed every boundary possible in the realm of practical effects, it is highly regarded for its psychological elements that still lead to discussions among horror fans to this day.
Truly a master of his craft, Carpenter lets the tension [...]
Motivational Growth Review
The horror genre is definitely a vast one. There are your run of the mill, straight-forward flicks that provide the common tropes of various sub-genres including slashers or creature features, but then there are those movies that are so out there that you don’t even know how to classify them.

Dr. Andover (Robert Englund) is a renowned physician who has invented a chamber that facilitates in the exploration and treatment of phobias. After a tragic event, however, the good [...]
Deep Rising Review
For years, I have had a strange fixation with the Stephen Sommers’ film Deep Rising. When I was younger, I would catch it on Starz! all the time. I simply could not go past the channel it was on without watching it. I could never find it on DVD and my VHS copy had long since disappeared from numerous moves throughout the years. I happened to stumble across a DVD copy of it for $2 the other day and [...]
Lurking Fear Review
H.P Lovecraft stories have been adapted for the screen for some time now, yet it seems like the only ones I truly get into have Jeffrey Combs attached to them. Full Moon Entertainment has some truly gothic films, thanks to Lovecraft and his twisted tales, so when C. Courtney Joyner got behind the short story of H.P entitled “Lurking Fear,” the stage was set. Then with the casting of Vincent Schiavelli, Ashley Laurence, and Mr. Combs, himself, it would be [...]
