Now You Know Where the Party Is

Ma Review

Ma poster

With still a few months to go, 2019 has already been a pretty good year for horror cinema. I think I’ve gone to the movies more this year than any of the previous five or so and I really haven’t walked out of the theater disappointed yet. One film that was great the first time around and even more so after a re-watch, is Tate Taylor’s Ma.

He’s Gonna Bring Some Pies

The Intruder Review

The Intruder

You might have noticed from my last review, I am a huge proponent of mainstream wide releases of horror films, remake or otherwise. Even if they are not the greatest the genre has to offer occasionally, they still manage to pull off things that a lot of the lower-budgetted films cannot. The latest to pique my interest is Deon Taylor’s The Intruder.

The Plot

Annie and Scott are ready to move away from the city to start a family. [...]

The Trigger Effect Review

The Trigger Effect movie review

While I tend to gravitate towards the gory side of the horror spectrum, I really do appreciate all types of films the genre has to offer. One part of the broad range that horror fans tend to forget about often is the “thriller.” If done right, thriller flicks can be quite entertaining. This can definitely be said about David Koepp’s The Trigger Effect.

The Plot

A solar storm has caused a massive blackout across what seems like the entire [...]

Marrowbone Review

Marrowbone | Repulsive Reviews } Horror Movies

With social media constantly bombarding us with instantaneous updates about the everyday occurrences of everyone’s lives, it is extremely difficult to stay spoiler-free from any form of entertainment.  Still, I do my best to steer clear of anything that may ruin a movie for me before I ever get a chance to see it for myself.  Hell, sometimes I don’t even read the synopsis plastered on the back of a home release’s artwork/case because I just want to go into [...]

Nothing Will Happen

The Ones Below Review

The Ones Below | Repulsive Reviews | Horror Movies

As I’ve stated in the past, films that you know nothing about can be the most exciting ones to watch. No trailers have generated expectations for you and no critics have influenced how you may feel about it. On the contrary, however, you may wind up feeling underwhelmed when the film’s credits roll and you’ve received nothing to write home about. Sadly, that is the case with David Farr’s psychological thriller, The Ones Below.

Expecting husband and wife, Justin [...]

Hang Tight, John

River Review

River | Repulsive Reviews | Horror Movies

Sometimes the films that depict events that can actually happen are more horrifying than the most gory of underground horror cinema. They may not be as grisly or anywhere near as explicit, but real-life events can cause real-life emotions from viewers. Thus is the case with Jamie M. Dagg’s crime thriller, River.

American doctor, John Lake (Rossif Sutherland, Hellions), is taking a much-needed holiday from his clinic in southern Laos. After an alcohol-filled night leads him to intervene [...]
