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 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.

Ether Riders of the Narthrak Review
I may not live the busiest life, but it is still extremely difficult for me to lounge around and watch as many films as I’d like. Sometimes, with my work schedule and my pretty strict gym routine, I’m lucky if I even get two films in, any given week.

Unlisted Owner Review
It doesn’t happen often, but I am occasionally approached by filmmakers, offering me an opportunity to check out their work. I have seen the good, the bad, and the ugly at this point, so I am always open to give someone’s newest project a chance without much hesitation. This time around, it was director Jed Brian’s Unlisted Owner on the chopping block.
A week after moving in, a family of five is murdered in their new home, adding [...]
The Ice Cream Truck Review
Even though the last few I’ve watched were less than enjoyable, I still get excited for a new slasher flick to enter my grasp. I really needed a fun one to get the bad taste out of my mouth; Was Megan Freels Johnston’s The Ice Cream Truck the indie slasher to do it?
