I can’t tell you how many times I have sat in a theater, viewing trailer after trailer, shouting out, “oh, that is gonna be good!” Sometimes I am right, but sometimes I am totally and utterly wrong. On the other hand, there are times when I completely dismiss a film based on a preview that looks downright awful, only to be surprised by the actual full-length film. That is exactly what happened with Justin Dec’s Countdown.
Many years ago, a group of up-and-coming filmmakers were deemed The Splat Pack. Whether this title was official or not, the group consisted of some of the most promising directors, many of whom went on to be pretty damn successful.

Fortunately for me, my reviews do manage to reach some filmmakers, making it a real treat when I am approached [...]
Bed of the Dead Review

After all of the years running this website, it’s hard to stay enthusiastic film after film. It’s not a tough “job,” yet still, sometimes it feels as if it’s a chore to get through some of the stuff that crosses my path. Fortunately, there will always come a new release to break me out of my slump and bring that excitement back to the forefront. This time, the movie that did the trick is Bruce R. Cook’s Nightwish.
