Knock Knock Review
Eli Roth is no stranger to pushing boundaries in his films, which comes as no surprise, seeing as how he got his start working for the notoriously
disgusting “Troma.” It’s very clear that he has a love for all sub-genres of horror; From Giallos to cannibal films, his knowledge and passion shine in all of his work. His newest film, Knock Knock, is probably the best film of 2015, if not his career. Since Eli Roth is already an [...]
The Blood Lands Review
We all know that the horror genre actually contains a whole slew of sub-genres — from the ghostly and supernatural to the gruesome slashers. Quite frankly, some of these sub-genres are more effective than others because of the simple fact that they are more relatable. Sure, you might get a little frightened from a monster movie or a creature feature, but in the end, you know the events of that film will never actually happen. It is this exact reason [...]
The Strangers Review
I can still remember the experience I had seeing Brian Bertino’s The Strangers in vivid detail — A carload of my closest friends and self-proclaimed horror-heads drove to the theater and eagerly awaited our visit from ‘The Strangers.’ Within minutes, I could feel the atmosphere around me getting tense. I didn’t bother to glance at any of my friends’ faces because I was too enthralled in the events that were unfolding in front of me, on the gigantic screen.
Mischief Night Review
It’s always great going in to a movie for the first time expecting one thing and ending up with something totally different. While some may claim to see the twists coming, this is kind of what happened with my viewing of Travis Baker’s Mischief Night.
Kaylie (Brooke Anne Smith) is spending the night before Halloween babysitting. After saving the house from a few young pranksters, another visitor comes by. This time, it’s not a prank, and Kaylie must fend [...]
Mother's Day Review
Director Darren Lynn Bousman’s film Mother’s Day is an unsettling home invasion film with so much tension and dread that, at times, it becomes truly tough to sit through. This is a sub-genre that I’m overly fond of for a few reasons in particular. The character development always seems to be a priority in these settings, as well as the tension of the cat and mouse game. Mind games, torture, and overall cruelty to the seemingly innocent cast can really [...]
It is quite refreshing to pop on a film you’ve never seen before only to be treated to an original and creative presentation. That is exactly what one will get when viewing Paul China’s Crawl for the first time.
Not like your typical Aussie horror flick, Paul China managed to take a screenplay with very limited dialog and turn it into a wonderful time. I want to say that about 70% of the film is completely without any type of [...]
