Pool Party Massacre

  Support independent horror. That’s what I’ve said for a long ass time. Even if the films are mediocre or not your favorite, still support it. If you don’t, it will go away and none of us want that. Do you want to support independent horror? Good! You’ve come to the right place. In April […]

Review: THE TRANSFIGURATION

Lately, the best aspect about being a movie fan for me is throwing myself into a film I have zero knowledge of.

SXSW Review: The Archer

As a kid watching films you normally didn’t analyze anything while sitting there. If you did read into it, you didn’t over analyze it. Re-watching some of these films as an adult, you can see their flaws or how ridiculous they may be. Of course you can give your suspension of disbelief but that can […]
