Haunted Hospital: Heilstatten Review

Haunted Hospital: Heilstatten Movie Review

It is Valentine’s Day yet again! I didn’t want to do the same thing as every other site, YouTube channel, or blog, so instead of checking out a holiday-appropriate flick, I just chose another at random. Today’s viewing goes to Michael David Pate’s Haunted Hospital: Heilstatten.

Macabre Review

Macabre Movie Review

After a recent re-introduction to the work of Timo Tjahjanto and Kimo Stamboel, I’ve made it a personal mission to watch everything in their filmography which I’ve missed over the years. My latest viewing was actually of their first feature film. I’m talking, of course, about 2009’s Macabre.

Brutal Review

Brutal | Repulsive Reviews | Horror Movies

Watching as many movies as I do these days, it becomes rather difficult to get excited too often. There are the occasional rumblings, however. The one-off posts on social media, the positive chatter. Sometimes it’s for blockbuster nationwide releases and sometimes those rumblings are for underground releases, perhaps on their way to some kind of cult status. I feel like that very well could happen with Takashi Hirose’s Brutal.

The Plot

Man murders women. Woman murders men. What happens [...]

The Mimic | Repulsive Reviews | Horror Movies

As a long time collector and, in more recent years, ‘film critic,’ it was inevitable that I’d stack up movie after movie without getting to watch all of them. From time to time, I start digging through these piles and after what seems like hours, I finally decide what to watch next. Today’s mood struck me as a perfect time to give Jung Huh’s ghost story, The Mimic, a chance.

The Plot

Hee-yeon has moved her family to care [...]

Cold Ground Review

Cold Ground | Repulsive Reviews | Horror Movies

There was a time when all I watched was found footage films. A few years back, it seemed as though everyone and their mother was making them. Trust me, there were a lot of duds to sift through. Thankfully, there were also a lot of gems, too. Read on to find out where Fabien Delage’s Cold Ground fits in amongst the pack.

The Plot

In 1976, a group of biologists and journalists were investigating multiple cases of animal mutilations in [...]
