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 used to think of myself as a pretty cultured fan of film. I would watch foreign flicks from time to time and, at one point, thought I had a finger on the pulse of what was going on outside of the States.

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 [...]
The biggest problem, if you can even call it that, for a movie collector is the fact that they can have a film on their shelf for years, never having seen it once. I personally buy way more movies than I could possibly have time to watch, so this isn’t unheard for me. I buy a movie, it gets placed somewhere, never to be handled again. One film that, after years, I’ve finally watched is Romain Basset’s Horsehead.
