I never thought I’d see the day that one of the greatest action stars of all time would be featured in a zombie film. Sure, we’ve seen the likes of Brad Pitt in virus/outbreak/zombie movies, but seeing the former Governator himself, Arnold Schwarzenegger, in Henry Hobson’s Maggie has blown me away.
Marguerite (Abigail Breslin) is one of the many suffering from the necroambulist virus that has been spreading like wildfire across the states. After two weeks of searching for her, [...]
We’ve all seen zombie flicks from all sides of the spectrum — the low-budget indie films to the blockbuster motion pictures. The problem with that is … just that! We’ve all seen zombie flicks from all sides of the spectrum! It’s all been done before, so where can filmmakers take the sub-genre that hasn’t been seen? It’s extremely hard to say and unfortunately Andrew Gilbert’s Infected just doesn’t do anything to further the zombie craze.
Infected is similar in [...]
The best thing about the horror genre is that you can pretty much find a film to watch no matter what mood you are currently in. If you want to be spooked, you can turn off the lights and more often than not, a good supernatural ghost story will do the trick; if you want to have a few friends over and just sit back, relax, and have a good time, you can rent, purchase, or stream any number of [...]
Anyone who pays any kind of attention to the horror genre already knows about the V/H/S and The ABCs of Death franchises, but there is a brilliant anthology film that I fear is going under too many people’s radars. Produced by Jesse Baget and featuring work by a multitude of directors, Zombieworld is gory as hell and an all out blast!
Like the other anthology series I already mentioned, Zombieworld features numerous directors tackling their own short films, which are [...]
Beyond the Grave Review
Writer/director Davi de Oliveira Pinheiro has a bright future in the horror genre. If the name doesn’t sound familiar, hopefully I can sway you to check out his film Beyond the Grave aka Porto Dos Mortos.
This film is a fantastic take on many horror sub-genres with a western vibe. Relentless and violent, the pace is astounding as well as the cinematography and editing. Most indie films tend to not focus so much on the bread and butter, they [...]
Zombie Killers: Elephant's Graveyard Review
It’s hard to get excited for zombie movies these days. At this point, we’ve all seen so many, and sadly, a lot of the time, the films turn out to be really bad. Fortunately for fans of the undead, there are still filmmakers out there that can breathe life into this over-saturated sub-genre. One of the latest to see a home video release is Harrison Smith’s Zombie Killers: Elephant’s Graveyard.
Zombie Killers tells the story of a small fracking [...]
The Demon's Rook Review
I’m really starting to believe that indie filmmakers have the most fun, when working on a film. Without any restrictions from major studio execs or higher-ups, anything can be said and done and nothing needs to be held back. One new film which shows the exact type of fun I’m talking about is The Demon’s Rook, written and directed by and starring James Sizemore.
Young Roscoe is visited almost nightly by an ancient wizard monk named Dimwos. Dimwos abducts [...]
The Sky Has Fallen Review
I like to think of myself as a connoisseur of horror. I’ve seen it all and I’m always on the look out for indie directors who make me feel the same thing I did when I watched The Evil Dead for the first time. It’s been a few months since Doug Roos film The Sky Has Fallen came into my possession. For some reason, I put this film on the back burner and nearly forgot about it. After an email [...]
