Purgatory Road Review
For avid horror movie collectors, it isn’t uncommon to have a select few distribution companies that are considered favorites. Companies that can release any film, blind buy or not, and it is still deemed worthy of purchasing. With the roll that Unearthed Films has been on as of late, it isn’t unfair to say that this is one company that all collectors should be keeping an eye on. The latest release worthy of your time is Mark Savage’s Purgatory Road [...]
The horror genre is a vast spectrum made up of tons of mini sub-genres. There are your straight-forward slasher flicks and your creature features. Then there are the more difficult ones to wrap your head around; The ones that don’t quite fit into any one category. That is, at least for me, what can be said about Adrian Corona’s Dis.

Watching as many movies as I do these days, it becomes rather difficult to get excited too often. There are the occasional rumblings, however. The one-off posts on social media, the positive chatter. Sometimes it’s for blockbuster nationwide releases and sometimes those rumblings are for underground releases, perhaps on their way to some kind of cult status.

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 [...]
