It’s Not Past For Me!

A Record of Sweet Murder Review

A Record of Sweet Murder movie review

It seems pretty rare, but once in a while, a movie comes along that you fall in love with immediately. It may be the acting or the special effects, or it may be something much different entirely.

Red Room 2 movie review

With so many movies to watch and so little free time, it is very difficult to plan out a viewing schedule and actually stick to it.

I’ll Take You Out For Some Chicken

She Wolf Review

She Wolf movie review

Not only did I really miss out on Women in Horror Month this year, but one could say I failed completely. That brings me to today, International Women’s Day, and my almost unintentional attempt at rectifying that particular failure. Quite fittingly, today’s film of choice was the 2013 Argentinian film featuring a female lead — Tamae Garateguy’s She Wolf.

The Plot

A serial killer uses the art of seduction to lure her male victims to their deaths. Unfortunately for [...]
