Train to Busan Review
There were a ton of horror films released in 2016. Like every year, there are of course, the good, the bad, and the ugly. I wish I could say I’ve seen them all, but we all know that this is close to impossible with real life getting in the way of movie watching. There were, however, a few last-minute releases that were making waves amongst horror fans that I knew I just had to see sooner rather than later. One [...]
My last review (The Curse of Doctor Wolffenstein) showed what Nico B. and the folks behind the scenes of ReelGore Releasing are bringing to the table, so to speak — splatter flicks for all of the gore fiends out there. While that fact does remain evident, their second official release relied less on viscera and more on atmosphere and psychological suspense. The film I’m describing is Andreas Marschall’s Masks.
After another failed audition, Stella (Susen Ermich) is [...]
The Curse of Doctor Wolffenstein Review
The fine folks at Cult Epics have been bringing the most extreme horror films to home release for years. With releases like Nekromantik and Schramm included in their discography, they’ve managed to become one of the leaders in beautiful HD remasters of some of the goriest films in cinema history. Founder Nico B., along with film producer, Steve Aquilina, have decided to keep up the brutal tradition by starting a new company, one aimed at releasing newly produced splatter films [...]
More often than not, foreign horror flicks are extremely entertaining. Some of the most fun horror experiences I’ve had have come from creature features, slashers, and zombie flicks delivered from outside of the states. Because of this, I’m usually pretty open to watching new genre films from overseas. Thankfully, we’ve been delivered another great one with Tomaz Gorkic’s Killbillies.
In need of some cash, Zina (Nina Ivanisin) has accepted a modeling gig, which finds her and fellow [...]
Reign of Assassins Review
Guys, we’ve been over this before. Yes, I am an avid horror fan, but I also like to watch other types of films from time to time. There’s a whole bunch of great stuff out there, so I have to make time for it all. Today, I am glad I made time for Su Chao-Pin’s epic martial arts thriller, Reign of Assassins.
An ancient Chinese legend tells of a mystical Buddhist monk who’s remains possess great power. Whoever is [...]
Daughter of Dracula Review
There are a whole mess of films out there dealing with vampires and more specifically Dracula. Each year, while more films on the subject are being made, I am introduced to those of the 70s and 80s that have managed to elude me all this time. I have seen the good, the bad, and the ugly that the sub-genre has to offer, but I continue to dig through to see what else the undead bloodsuckers can bring to the table. [...]
An extremely large number of murders remain unsolved in Mexico each year, leaving those of us to wonder how the perpetrators get away with their heinous crimes. Even though there have been a countless number of horror films “based on true events,” it is possible that first-time feature film director Lex Ortega’s Atroz is one of the most accurate depictions of every day life in Mexico.
After a gruesome accident, the police commander in charge of the scene takes it [...]
Kill Zone 2 Review
I’ve been a fan of martial arts films for at least fifteen years now. Sadly, however, I do not watch them frequently enough to really keep up with the actors or any new trends that may be occurring in the genre. When I do happen to stumble across one and actually have time to watch it, I am blown away at how the genre has evolved. In that regard, Pou-Soi Cheang’s Kill Zone 2 is no exception.
There are many [...]
