The Devil's Familiar Review
The majority of the films that I cover in my reviews are ones that I specifically ask to receive copies of. There are the rare occasions when I write about films that are simply collecting dust on my shelves and then there are the even more rare instances when I am approached to share my thoughts on a particular film. This is exactly what happened this time with Kieran Edwards’ The Devil’s Familiar.

Manson Family Movies Review
It’s no secret that America is fascinated with serial killers and other true crimes. While I’m not sure where this fixation comes from, I can’t deny that I, too, am intrigued by all of the sociopaths walking the face of the earth. There are countless documentaries, made-for-television movies, and TV series telling these true tales of terror, but there are none that are quite like the Manson Family Movies directed by John Aes-Nihil.

Unlisted Owner Review
It doesn’t happen often, but I am occasionally approached by filmmakers, offering me an opportunity to check out their work.

The Pigman Murders Review
For anyone who has followed my reviews over the years, it is no secret that I used to dislike watching independent films.

I actually look forward to watching a lot of the lesser known flicks by up-and-coming filmmakers quite a bit now. The latest one that I can scratch off my list is Stephen Patrick Kenny’s The Pigman Murders.

Haunted Hospital: Heilstatten Review
It is Valentine’s Day yet again! I didn’t want to do the same thing as every other site, YouTube channel, or blog, so instead of checking out a holiday-appropriate flick, I just chose another at random. Today’s viewing goes to Michael David Pate’s Haunted Hospital: Heilstatten.
A group of vloggers agree to spend a 24 hour period inside a notoriously haunted sanatorium, as their latest challenge to one another. Will the boys of Prankstaz.tv outlast their online [...]
The Monster Project Review
While it seems that the found footage sub-genre is almost non-existent at this point, there are still a few filmmakers who dare to try their hand at it. Some manage to do so quite effectively, I might add. The latest evidence of this is Victor Mathieu’s The Monster Project.
A couple of buddies who want to increase their [YouTube] viewer count decide to make a documentary about real life monsters. They have all the right ingredients for [...]
