House of Forbidden Secrets Review
If you’ve been reading my most recent reviews, you’ll have noticed that I’ve been on a little Unearthed Films kick. In continuing with that recent trend, I figured I’d check out another one of the most recent additions to their ever-growing filmography, Todd Sheets’ House of Forbidden Secrets.
It’s Jacob’s first night as the security guard for ShadowView Manor. After meeting with the rest of the night residents of the building, Jacob reluctantly agrees to be a participant in [...]
The Unnamable Review
With my recent ventures into the more extreme side of horror cinema, I have been diving deeper into the Unearthed Films catalog. With that, I was able to discover another of their more recent releases that piqued my interest. This time around, it wasn’t another indie film from an up-and-coming young director who was assaulting us with tons of gore. Instead it was a film that was only available on VHS until now, Jean-Paul Ouellette’s 1998 The Unnamable.
The Song of Solomon Review
After being part of the horror community for so many years, you start to hear rumblings of the next film that you “just have to see.” These films generally push the envelope, taking things like gore and gratuitous nudity to the next level. Years ago, they were traded on VHS tapes as a type of underground barter system among diehard horror enthusiasts. In 2018, however, films like this are more readily available, while still causing tons of controversy. One series [...]
Lilith's Hell Review
As someone who runs a website dedicated to reviewing films, I have the privilege of receiving emails from studios and distribution companies about upcoming releases. As you may have noticed, the time I spend watching and reviewing movies has changed over the years, going from publishing multiple reviews in a day, at one point to, now, only once a week. Because of this, I rarely even look at the emails that come flooding into my inbox. I simply just do [...]
An extremely large number of murders remain unsolved in Mexico each year, leaving those of us to wonder how the perpetrators get away with their heinous crimes. Even though there have been a countless number of horror films “based on true events,” it is possible that first-time feature film director Lex Ortega’s Atroz is one of the most accurate depictions of every day life in Mexico.
After a gruesome accident, the police commander in charge of the scene takes it [...]
Sheep Skin Review
Boy, do I love surprises! I’ve seen a couple of flicks released by Unearthed Films, which gave me the idea that I knew what I was getting into if I ever watched another one distributed by them. I absolutely hated Thanatomorphose and while I thought Collar was an okay film, it wasn’t the best indie horror I’ve ever seen. After shutting off another film put out by Unearthed recently, I pretty much decided that I was done with them all [...]
There seems to be two different schools of horror fan. First, there are those that enjoy horror films with substance — believable acting, original storylines, awesome special effects, etc. Then there are those who like movies that really have nothing going for them other than a complete gross-out factor — over-the-top gore, no real plot to follow, and filth galore. In my honest opinion, it seems that Éric Falardeau’s Thanatomorphose fits more properly in the latter class of genre.
