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 [...]
The Ones Below Review
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 [...]
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 [...]
One of the largest concerns on the minds of people these days seems to be the same worldwide. No matter where you live or what your current situation may be, I feel as though it is always on our minds, at least to some degree. What I’m referring to is financial security. You have a great paying job, a beautiful home, and everything you ever dreamed of having, but what happens if that is all taken away overnight? You lose [...]
The Badger Game Review
Have you ever been traumatized so badly by a film that you try to avoid anything and everything that even remotely reminds you of it in the tiniest bit? That’s exactly how I feel about The Bunny Game. I’m not traumatized because the film was ‘so shocking,’ like many articles have claimed, but because the damn thing was so awful, painful to sit through really. That is why any film even mentioning the word ‘game’ in the title immediately [...]
No Escape Review
My last couple of reviews have been about some pretty great titles, a few very worthy of the ‘repulsive’ title. 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.
Roommate Wanted Mini-Review
Judging by its home release cover, you’d think that Rob Margolies’ Roommate Wanted would be a full-blown horror film. Oddly enough, this is not the case at all, as there really aren’t any horror elements to be seen whatsoever.
Don’t get me wrong, this film about two roommates who get on each other’s nerves enough to want to savagely beat each other does get pretty brutal at certain points, but I still wouldn’t call it a ‘horror’ per se.
Child 44 Review
I’m not sure what the determining factor is when it comes to which films end up shown in movie theaters around the world or just receive home releases, but it is my fear that there are tons of brilliant movies that are going unnoticed by the general public. One of the latest of these brilliant pieces is Daniel Espinosa’s drama thriller, Child 44.
After refusing to denounce his wife, Raisa (Noomi Rapace, Prometheus), as a traitor, secret agent [...]
