Family Game Night Review
I don’t have the busiest schedule during a typical week, but there are certain days that I have less time than others it seems. I try my best to keep up with the films that I am constantly acquiring for my collection, but it is virtually impossible to do so. On nights where I really don’t have time for a full-length feature, I count my lucky stars for short films! Tonight’s viewing pleasure belongs to Nick Ferwerda’s Family Game Night [...]
The Stylist Review
Hey guys… remember me? I know, I know. I’ve been m.i.a for quite a while now, but what better time to come back to all of you fine folks than… a random Thursday evening…? Anyway, time and day of the week aside, I am indeed back with another horror review and this time I am extremely excited. Why, you ask? Well, because I finally have, in my hot little hands, a copy of Jill “Sixx” Gevargizian’s “The Stylist.”

Call Girl Review
After a quick skim over some horror news and fan sites this morning, I ran across a podcast from not too long ago that featured an interview with Laurence R. Harvey who most fans now know from The Human Centipede II (Full Sequence).

Not much was mentioned [...]
It always amazes me when filmmakers can make a short film that ends up being far more superior than most feature films that I watch. With the blending of multiple sub-genres and an overall fantastic production quality, so is the case with Richard Powell’s amazingly entertaining short entitled Familiar.
John Dodd is a middle-aged man who is sick of performing the same routine, day in and day out. He is sick of his wife, his daughter, his entire existence. [...]
Counter Parts Team Review
Patrick Rea’s short film Counter Parts is already making noise winning “Best Short” at its very first screening. Counter Parts is reminiscent of a Twilight Zone episode and is executed flawlessly. The story revolves around two sisters with a bond, and an even deeper resentment.
Patrick Rea is no stranger to the genre either with many short films to his credit and the Lionsgate released Nailbiter. Counter Parts is well-crafted and does better in 10 minutes than most films [...]
Doll Boy Review
In August, when I went to Crypticon in Kansas City, I met a ton of people pushing independent projects. Among those people, I met a fella named Gary Cooper who helps run Slaughter Movie House. They screen and promote independent horror in a big way. He gave me some promotional material for a movie called “Doll Boy,” which immediately peaked my interest. Unfortunately, they didn’t have any copies of the DVD. It took me a few months to acquire the [...]
