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?

My Little Sister 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.

Blood Lake 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
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.
