It’s Not Past For Me!
A Record of Sweet Murder Review
It seems pretty rare, but once in a while, a movie comes along that you fall in love with immediately. It may be the acting or the special effects, or it may be something much different entirely. Perhaps it’s something you can’t even put your finger on. The latest film to give me this warm and fuzzy feeling is Koji Shiraishi’s A Record of Sweet Murder.

This Reminds Me of Something
Red Room 2 Review
With so many movies to watch and so little free time, it is very difficult to plan out a viewing schedule and actually stick to it. I am pulled in many directions, between watching movies for pleasure and watching those that I’ve been sent for the sole purpose of sharing my thoughts on, here on the site. Still, I was lucky enough, this time around, to actually stick to a plan; I was able to watch a sequel to a [...]

Red Room Review
A little while back I had mentioned that I was on an Asian horror kick. Sadly, it didn’t last too long, as I was thrust into watching and reviewing more random horror flicks.

Today’s viewing pleasure belonged to Daisuke Yamanouchi’s Red Room.

I was never good at answering those “who is your favorite” questions. The most difficult for me is when it comes to something like favorite director. In recent years, however, one filmmaker that sticks out in my mind much more than others is Gareth Evans. I recently learned of his first-ever feature film, Footsteps, and decided to give it a watch.

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 No-No Part of the Woods
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.
