Halloween 2018 Review
It’s not often that I get to sit and enjoy what would be considered a “mainstream” horror film. Sure, they are out there, but for the most part, I am watching direct-to-home release independent features. There’s nothing wrong with that, but it is extremely nice to take a break from those from time to time to watch something more ‘polished.’ This brings me to the mother of all horror films in 2018, in my humble opinion, David Gordon Green’s Halloween.

All Hallows' Eve 2 Review

Enter horror anthology sequel, All Hallows’ Eve 2, featuring shorts directed by Jesse Baget, Elias Benavidez, Andrés Borghi, Jay Holben, Mike Kochansky, James and Jon Kondelik, Bryan Norton, [...]
All Hallows' Eve Review
Director Damien Leone is one nasty, talented S.O.B. If you are big into short horror films or the indie horror scene, you have probably seen some of his truly disturbing work. I had been waiting for his film All Hallows’ Eve to get released without the knowledge that most of the film had already been released on the internet as short films, so I went in completely blind and left more than happy.
I’m a huge fan of horror anthologies [...]
