My Little Sister Review

My Little Sister movie review

On paper, it doesn’t seem difficult to create an effective slasher film. Like most horror sub-genres, there are a few key elements to the proper formula that, if followed precisely, should ensure a good film experience. Unfortunately, this isn’t always the case when it comes to independent filmmaking. The most recent evidence I have of this is Maurizio and Roberto del Piccolo’s My Little Sister.

Sheila and Tom are meeting their friends in the woods for a [...]

Rust Review

Rust movie review

For most horror fans, there is nothing more exciting than finding new films in your favorite sub-genre. A lot of hardcore collectors and film viewers probably feel like they’ve “seen it all” already, so the promise of a new experience from a new filmmaker is always intriguing.

Don't Look Review

Don't Look movie review

It’s pretty safe to say that the most popular sub-genre of horror is the slasher flick. While they aren’t as prevalent now, the 80s saw countless filmmakers attempting to cash in on the masked killer craze.

Blood Lake Review

Blood Lake movie review

Anyone who remembers the good old days of video rental stores will recall the awesome artwork that was always on display in the horror section. More often than not, if you weren’t sure of a film, all you had to judge was that beautifully horrifying cover art. For many physical media collectors today, that same allure still exists. There are tons of films being released by countless boutique labels on a daily basis. Quite often, newly commissioned or even just [...]

The Pigman Murders Review

The Pigman Murders

For anyone who has followed my reviews over the years, it is no secret that I used to dislike watching independent films. Since starting Repulsive Reviews, however, my appreciation for low-budget, do-it-yourself horror films has greatly increased. I actually look forward to watching a lot of the lesser known flicks by up-and-coming filmmakers quite a bit now. The latest one that I can scratch off my list is Stephen Patrick Kenny’s The Pigman Murders.

The Plot

Kolobos Review

Kolobos movie review

No matter how many times I may stray, I always find my way back to the slasher sub-genre. While I love all things horror, from werewolves to aliens, the slashers are the ones I have the most fun with it. Today’s journey into slasher territory was a new one for me, Daniel Liatowitsch and David Todd Ocvirk’s Kolobos.

The Plot

A group of young strangers answer a casting call for a new social experiment. They are to live in [...]
