Train to Busan Review
There were a ton of horror films released in 2016. Like every year, there are of course, the good, the bad, and the ugly. I wish I could say I’ve seen them all, but we all know that this is close to impossible with real life getting in the way of movie watching. There were, however, a few last-minute releases that were making waves amongst horror fans that I knew I just had to see sooner rather than later. One [...]
Summer Camp Review
I wonder how many great films fall completely under the radar of the masses, never to be seen. I’m sure there are tons of amazing horror films out there that I’ll never watch or never even hear of. It’s a shame, but it is an unfortunate reality. Luckily, I was able to watch at least one more of these films, as I fear Alberto Marini’s Summer Camp will fall tragically into this realm of unheard of gems.

Cabin Fever Review
Eli Roth’s debut film, Cabin Fever, will always have a solid spot in my ‘favorite horror movie’ list. I actually enjoyed it so much that I got excited when its sequel was originally announced.

It doesn’t take long for all of her interactions from the previous film to start having dire consequences. Riley (Matt Mercer, Madison County, Auteur) is now feeling the effects of the disease and races against the clock to search for a vaccine.
Man, oh man, did Josh Forbes and Craig [...]
Each year that I take part in this whole film review pastime, I become more aware of what is going on with the horror genre, or so I think anyway. With that said, there are still quite a bit of releases that manage to fly right under my radar. Apparently, reading all of the greatest and most popular genre news sites/blogs still won’t keep you informed on 100% of the goings on, as I wasn’t really aware of Eli Morgan [...]
The last few films that I’ve seen starring Elijah Wood have been some of the most original genre films I’ve witnessed in a very long time. Needless to say, when his project about a virus outbreak at an elementary school was announced, I was more excited than words can describe. When I started spotting initial reviews of the film, however, the opinions didn’t seem to coincide with what I had come to expect. I heard some pretty negative things, but [...]
