I am a bit of a found footage freak. I’ve lost [...]
When I first started reviewing horror films, I was under this odd assumption that once I launched a site, people would eventually approach me to review their films. I learned very quickly that that was most certainly not the case, at least in my experience. More often than not, I am begging and pleading for upcoming releases to review. Still, there is the rare occasion where someone will contact me through one of my social media accounts, asking if I [...]

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. Since starting Repulsive Reviews, however, my appreciation for low-budget, do-it-yourself horror films has greatly increased. 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.
A group of [...]
