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.
Man murders women. Woman murders men. What happens [...]
The Mimic Review
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.

Cold Ground Review
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.

Evil Dead Trap Review
Now that Christmas has come and gone, it’s time to get back to the myriad of non-holiday titles that are out there. I happened to get a delivery from an eBay order today, so it seemed like the perfect film to throw on and share with you all… as strange as that experience may have turned out to be. The film in question is Toshiharu Ikeda’s Evil Dead Trap.

Christmas Blood Review
Literally every year since I started this site, I’ve made myself a vow to review as many Christmas-themed horror films as possible during the month of December. I have failed to do so every. single. year. While I don’t see this year being any different, unfortunately, I can say that I did get to watch and review at least one of the many there seem to be floating around out there. That one is Reinert Kiil’s Christmas Blood.
Artsploitation Films has been releasing movies from around the world for just about seven years now. I actually own just about the entire catalog of their films in my personal collection. My favorite thing about the movies they release is that they are all vastly different from one another. Since 2012, there have been gory horrors, satirical horror comedies, and hard-to-watch drama thrillers, all under the same Artsploitation banner. Where does their newest release, Adolfo J. Kolmerer’s Snowflake, fall [...]
