What the Waters Left Behind Review
I really wish there were more hours in a day. The amount of movies I have piling up on my “to watch” list is absurd and I really only have enough spare time to watch one or two per week. Because of this, pressing play on a blind-buy or a movie I know nothing about is a huge gamble. Luckily for me, there are still some hidden gems out there that are a breath of fresh air when stumbling upon [...]
Ghost Killers vs. Bloody Mary Review
At this point, it is safe to say that there are more horror films out there that I’ve never heard of than ones that I have. While never even hearing of a film is generally a bad thing, there are some rare instances in which I am pleasantly surprised. Luckily, that is the exact case here with Fabricio Bittar’s Ghost Killers vs. Bloody Mary.

I have never, however, reviewed anything that has won major academy awards. I can finally say that has now changed, as I share my thoughts on Bong Joon Ho’s Parasite.

Carved: The Slit-mouthed Woman Review
Months ago, I watched a film that, after only one viewing, blew me away. I had no previous experience with the director, at least none that I could recall at the time, so I immediately did a bit of research to not only learn of his filmography, but to also find copies of any of his previous films that I could get my hands on. As is normal in most people’s lives, time flew by quickly and while I had [...]
