Why Can’t We Just Have Normal Friends?
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.

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.

Lilith's Hell Review
As someone who runs a website dedicated to reviewing films, I have the privilege of receiving emails from studios and distribution companies about upcoming releases. As you may have noticed, the time I spend watching and reviewing movies has changed over the years, going from publishing multiple reviews in a day, at one point to, now, only once a week. Because of this, I rarely even look at the emails that come flooding into my inbox. I simply just do [...]
Smells Like Burnt Chicken
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 [...]
