Blood Quantum Review
Every horror fan knows the painful reality of being excited for a film, only to be let down with how terrible it actually is. Then there is the flip side to that devastating coin — we expect a film to be ‘just okay,’ something maybe worthy of one watch, which turns out to be amazing in almost every way. That, my friends, is how I feel about Jeff Barnaby’s Blood Quantum.

American Zombieland Review
As I continue to try and reach some sort of consistency with my movie reviews, I manage to find more and more films that I have no recollection of ever obtaining. Tonight’s viewing pleasure goes to another that I knew nothing about beforehand, George Bennett’s American Zombieland.

I’m not sure what is going on with the Universe, but time flies by way too quickly nowadays. Unfortunately, as I get older, that all seems to happen even more rapidly. As if the year didn’t speed by quickly enough on its own, I’ve decided to help things along by watching a film which takes place during Christmas time. The film I am referring to is John McPhail’s Anna and the Apocalypse.

The Dead Don't Die Review
It’s truly a great time to be a horror fan. Over the last few years especially, the genre all of us have loved for so long has been reaching more and more people. An entirely new audience is being subjected to countless TV shows, films, and other horror content, something I would have never imagined just a decade ago. With that new reach comes new ideas from filmmakers. Some are hit, some are miss. Read on to see where Jim [...]
