Horror fans have it good in the year 2019. There are countless boutique labels putting out tons of films, from the most popular to the most obscure. The biggest fish in this sea of genre films are of course Arrow Video, Scream Factory, Vinegar Syndrome, and a handful of others. There are other companies pumping out some great stuff, however; Ones that don’t make as much noise, but perhaps should. The latest film presented by Dread is clearly evidence of [...]
This year has been a pretty great year for horror films and there are still two months to go. I’ve been lucky enough to have seen plenty of entertaining genre flicks in theaters, making the movie-watching experience that much more grandiose. One of my favorites to experience in this manner was, without a doubt, Alexandre Aja’s Crawl.

Bird Box Review
I tend to steer clear of the films that make the most noise, the films that everyone claims are “the best I’ve ever seen.” More often than not, I am sorely disappointed.

While Daddy’s Little Girl, Charlie’s Farm, and Last Shift may not exactly fit with this next one, horror fans and action fans alike still won’t want to miss out on what it has to offer. John Erick Dowdle’s No Escape is full of action and thrills, from the moment it begins, up until the very end credits.
You guys may be asking yourselves why a movie of this caliber is being reviewed on a website called ‘Repulsive Reviews.’ Well, it’s simple really. Alfonso Cuarón’s award winning “Gravity” is as much of a survival horror film as it is a stunning visual masterpiece.
Right from the start, we are treated with gorgeous scenery and what seems to be some lighthearted, every day, run-of-the-mill occurrences for a crew who happen to be doing work outside of the Earth’s atmosphere. [...]
