Horror Down Under: WOLF CREEK (2005)

If you asked any Australian what their favourite Aussie horror film would be, I guarantee you that the first answer would be WOLF CREEK. If you have seen the film, it’s not hard to understand why that is. Before the film was released in 2015, Australian horror films were basically dead at the cinema. Sure […]

SXSW Daily Recap: Days 8 & 9

I only attended two screenings on the last day of SXSW (including festival closer Life), so I’ve combined days eight and nine. For most of the films at SXSW, ballots are issued so that the films can be rated on a scale of one to five. You’re not able to give a half point rating (e.g. […]

VHS Cover Series: A Night At The Video Store: Part V: The Return Of The Video Store

I’ve been renting videos since I was little. My mom would let me rent pretty much anything in the store, but when it came to watching it I had to close my eyes for any of the “no-no” scenes. That’s what my mom called them when I was a little kid and it still makes […]

HACK-O-LANTERN 30th Anniversary Limited Edition Coming May 9th!!!

  Back in high school/community college, there was one title I used to come across quite a bit while I browsed the horror section of my local video store. From the front and back cover, I thought it looked so god-awful that I imagined it would be really fun to watch. The title of that […]

Arrow Announces June Titles! The Return of Argento’s THE BIRD WITH THE CRYSTAL PLUMAGE!

SXSW Review: TRAGEDY GIRLS

I live for horror films. It doesn’t matter if they are great, mediocre, bad, goofy, or inventive, I’m always on board. I’ve always said watching a terrible horror film is always easier than watching a terrible drama or comedy. This day and age it’s getting a little easier to make and distribute a film. Just […]

SXSW Review: METH STORM: ARKANSAS USA

While Meth Storm: Arkansas USA sounds like some direct-to-video sequel of a Nick Cage movie, I can assure you that’s not at all what this is. Meth Storm is a documentary that premiered at SXSW about users, DTF/DEA, and the Mexican Cartel. The cameras roll as DTF agents bust down doors and users that are […]

GetOut

Theatrical Review – Get Out

‘Get Out,’ directed by Jordan Peele of the Key & Peele show, utilized the creative space of the horror-comedy genre as a vessel for social commentary regarding the complexities of race relations and commodification of nonwhite bodies in contemporary American society. The film also comments on the sociopolitical-theological paradigm of both liberal and conservative ideologies […]
