Hello again, you awesome creatures. You know, I don’t know what it is about movies that take place in the past that I enjoy so much. My theory, however, is that because I have such a growing disdain for humanity these days, it’s nice to watch something that takes place in a time when things were simpler and there was none of the garbage we’re almost constantly exposed to on television, radio and the internet. In this case, I’m talking about the new Guillermo Del Toro film Crimson Peak. I didn’t have very high hopes going into it, due to my not being very impressed by the trailer. So let’s go over it and see what the end result was. Continue reading

The Indie horror scene is a tricky one. While it seems sometimes that it’s the last bastion of originality compared to what Hollywood churns out nowadays, Indie horror can still be hit or miss on occasion. But the gems that I do find keep me optimistic for the future of horror. Today, I’ll be talking about The Purgation, a movie that had an Indiegogo campaign that ended in early 2014. It unfortunately didn’t meet its goal, but it was a flexible funding campaign, and production went through nevertheless. Special thanks go out to Director Elaine Chu, who was gracious enough to provide a screener so I can inform you good people about The Purgation. So without further ado, let’s begin. Continue reading

Such is the case for Jessica and Dan, the main characters in today’s movie I’m reviewing, The Inhabitants.

In a world where reboots and remakes are popping up like weeds, it’s nice to go to an alternative that tries its best to be something original. In this case, I’m talking about the 2009 horror The Sky Has Fallen. Its been a while since I watched something with a post-apocalyptic aspect (no, I haven’t seen the latest Mad Max yet, I’ll get around to it in time), and the director Doug Roos was kind enough to hook me up with a look at his endeavor, so thanks go out to him.

Hello once again. After some consideration as to what I should review next, I thought maybe it’s time I delved back into the world of found footage. But I didn’t want to review any old FF flick that I came across, which is why I chose As Above, So Below. Though I almost never trust trailers, the trailer for this particular flick did grab my attention, and so it made sense to me to take the plunge and see what came of it. As Above, So Below is directed by John Erick Dowdle, who was involved in the making of such horror films as Quarantine, Quarantine 2 (as a writer), and Devil. With those movies under his bet, my optimism was somewhat raised. Add to that the fact that the majority of the film was actually filmed in the Paris catacombs (which was apparently a first for any film crew) and it became a must watch for me. But enough delay, let’s get into it. Continue reading
