There’s a Bloke With His Throat Ripped Open

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.

The Plot

Two film students are [...]

Ether Riders of the Narthrak Review

Ether Riders of the Narthrak

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. It is times like this that I thank the good Lord for short films… although, after watching VRVLVM’s Ether Riders of the Narthrak, it seems that my thanks are more [...]

Bliss Review

I know this has to come to an end very soon, but I still find myself traveling down this long stretch of road where all stops are really great films. Never before have I been on such a roll and I couldn’t be happier as a film fan and as someone who writes about these films for fun. The latest treat to cross my path is Joe Begos’ Bliss.

The Plot

Dezzy (Dora Madison, “Dexter”) is a talented artist [...]

This time around, it was director Jed Brian’s Unlisted Owner on the chopping block.

The Plot

This is the Real Deal

The Ice Cream Truck Review

The Ice Cream Truck poster

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?

The Plot

Mary moves back to her small hometown and has some time to kill before the rest of her family joins her. It doesn’t take long [...]

Purgatory Road Review

Purgatory Road Movie Review

For avid horror movie collectors, it isn’t uncommon to have a select few distribution companies that are considered favorites. Companies that can release any film, blind buy or not, and it is still deemed worthy of purchasing. With the roll that Unearthed Films has been on as of late, it isn’t unfair to say that this is one company that all collectors should be keeping an eye on. The latest release worthy of your time is Mark Savage’s Purgatory Road [...]
