Witness protection isn’t enough to keep a mother and her young daughter safe, as the vigilantes hunting them down catch up to the pair. They want a confession the mother either can’t, or won’t, give and the location is so remote any help will be at least an hour away. There’s no obvious way out,

Something deadly has begun in the woods as an infectious spore mutates from ‘Patient Zero’ to begin an alarming spread. People are its food source as well as reproduction method, giving it plenty of chances to evolve even further, and there doesn’t appear to be any way to stop it. The structure of The Spore

Ditched Film Review

Canadian writer/director Christopher Donaldson wants you to know that Ditched is supposed to be “that B-movie you accidentally missed in 1986”. Do not watch it hoping for a deep message or psychological layers to peel, that’s not his goal. Watch it for the gory thrill ride that it is and be prepared to groan at

Infection Film Review

Infeccion (Infection) is writer/director Flavio Pedota’s debut feature length film and Venezuela’s first zombie flick. While the movie contains many of the genre’s popular tropes, it is the location that sets it apart from all others. Pedota wanted viewers to know that he was not just making a zombie movie; he was exposing the truth

Cursed Land Featured image

Cursed Land (in competition at the Dracula Film Fest under the name Cursed Land. Fate), was one of the best films I saw at that festival, a big surprise basically coming out of nowhere – if for ‘On the 3rd Day’ I knew what to expect, here I had just a great poster to start

Post Mortem 2021 Review

Post Mortem (2020), Hungary’s first horror movie of international acclaim, is one of the best ghost stories I’ve ever watched. With scenes that rival Frances Ford Coppola’s ability to create atmosphere, Post Mortem explores death and the macabre in such a way that the viewer may get so wrapped up in the story that they

vStanleyville film review

Stanleyville has a simple premise: five contestants compete in a contest to win a brand new habanero-orange compact SUV. Maria joins hoping for a chance at transcendence, but the other four really really want that car. How those players choose to interpret the games is where it all jumps off the rails in this wild

As a horror film critic, it’s my job to watch a movie with as little bias as possible, and to provide an honest review that hopefully entices potential viewers to watch it. What do I do, then, when a film I was pumped to see turns out to be the biggest load of garbage I’ve

Lake of the Dead FIlm Review

The Hammer films of the late ’50s and ’60s are my go-to comfort films. I’m particularly partial to ones starring Peter Cushing and Christopher Lee, but honestly, who doesn’t love those? Older horror films don’t have all of the high budget effects and scare gags that a lot of their modern counterparts do, so they
