I’ve Been at the Bottom of the Barrel

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.

The Plot

A week after moving in, a family of five is murdered in their new home, adding [...]

This is the Real Deal

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?

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 [...]

I ran out of shelf space for my ever-growing film collection a long time ago. The more movies I amass, the higher my stacks grow. Because of this poor choice of organization, it’s very easy for me to misplace things. I do go digging from time to time and end up seeing a release or two that catches my attention. Tonight’s attention-grabber was Paul Ragsdale and Angelica De Alba’s Streets of Vengeance.

Truth or Dare Review

Truth or Dare | Repulsive Reviews | Horror Movies

I’m not sure when I first learned of this film, but I’ve been looking for a copy of it ever since. Every so often, I’d search a couple of the usual spots for a new home video release — Amazon, eBay — to no avail. The thought never came to me to just go straight to the source, the director herself! After years of waiting, I’ve finally had the pleasure of watching Jessica Cameron’s Truth or Dare.

So Much Exquisite Darkness!

Dreaming Purple Neon Review

Dreaming Purple Neon | Repulsive Reviews | Horror Movies

One of the main reasons I started reviewing films years ago was to talk to others who enjoyed the horror genre as much as me. With my goal being to reach other fans, I never expected that reach to extend to those who are actually involved with the films — actors, producers, etc. I was recently contacted by Todd Sheets after reviewing a couple of his movies, with an invitation to watch another of his newest projects. I couldn’t [...]
