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.

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 [...]
