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.

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.

Halloween 2018 Review
It’s not often that I get to sit and enjoy what would be considered a “mainstream” horror film. Sure, they are out there, but for the most part, I am watching direct-to-home release independent features. There’s nothing wrong with that, but it is extremely nice to take a break from those from time to time to watch something more ‘polished.’ This brings me to the mother of all horror films in 2018, in my humble opinion, David Gordon Green’s Halloween.

Party Night Review
In the past, I’ve explained that I go through phases with my horror viewing. There will be months where I’ll watch nothing but werewolf flicks or a long stretch where it’s all found footage films. Currently, I seem to be diving deeper into another of my slasher episodes. After my viewing of Troy Escamilla’s latest feature, a few days ago, I thought it only fitting to watch his first film, Party Night.

Evil Dead Trap Review
Now that Christmas has come and gone, it’s time to get back to the myriad of non-holiday titles that are out there. I happened to get a delivery from an eBay order today, so it seemed like the perfect film to throw on and share with you all… as strange as that experience may have turned out to be. The film in question is Toshiharu Ikeda’s Evil Dead Trap.
