A Record of Sweet Murder 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.

She Wolf Review
Not only did I really miss out on Women in Horror Month this year, but one could say I failed completely.

Quite fittingly, today’s film of choice was the 2013 Argentinian film featuring a female lead — Tamae Garateguy’s She Wolf.
