Piranha (2010)

MOVIE REVIEW: PIRANHA (2010) ⭐️⭐️⭐️ Alexandre Aja (High Tension, Crawl) dives into shamelessly entertaining, eco-horror as he takes us to Spring Break on Lake Victoria, Arizona where burnt out college kids are ready to let loose in the horror/comedy remake Piranha. Adult movie producer Derick (Jerry O’Conell) is in town to film his new movie,…

The Conjuring 2

THE CONJURING 2 ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ James Wan is the embodiment and maestro in the creation of terror, as well as the director of what is considered the decade’s scariest movie The Conjuring. In its follow up, The Conjuring 2, Wan succeeds in holding the flame up to his original work, something we cannot say about most…

Crawl

MOVIE REVIEW: CRAWL ⭐️⭐️⭐️ With special effects that make enormous alligators appear hyper-realistic, Crawl punches a whirlwind of a storm into two hours of giant fun. The elements of fear abound in Crawl, a movie set against a backdrop of a massive Florida hurricane where apex predators; oversized, angry alligators are hellbent on hunting humans…

Welcome Home (aka The Getaway)

MOVIE REVIEW: THE GETAWAY AKA WELCOME HOME ⭐️⭐️✨ The Getaway showcases American couple Ryan and Cassie (Aaron Paul and Emily Ratajkowski) as they try to enjoy a week long trip in Italy hoping to repair their strained relationship.

Shut In (aka Intruders)

FILM REVIEW: SHUT IN (AKA INTRUDERS) ⭐️⭐️ Intruders stars Anna Rook (Beth Riesgraf) a strange bird who suffers from severe agoraphobia after experiencing trauma years earlier. Believed to be at her brother Conrad’s (Timothy T. McKinney) funeral three intruders break into her home hoping to rob the place in a quick hit. But intentions get…

The Young Cannibals

FILM REVIEW: THE YOUNG CANNIBALS ⭐️⭐️ We are tricked into believing Kris Carr’s The Young Cannibals will be strong in storytelling, as the movie begins in a psychiatric ward where Nat (Megan Purvis) is being held after a suicide attempt. But the truth is, this is where its strength begins and ends. After escaping the…

House Of The Dead

FILM REVIEW: HOUSE OF THE DEAD ⭐️ In House of the Dead a group of teens gets stranded on an island when zombies attack a rave in this lower than B budget horror movie that uses the 1996 Sega game as its premise. With no houses in sight one wonders why Director Uwe Boll didn’t…

Bloodline

FILM REVIEW: BLOODLINE ⭐️⭐️ Bloodline stars Sean William Scott as Evan, a first time father who has a dark and abusive past. In flashbacks we learn of Evan’s physically abusive father who pleads with both his son and wife to right his wrongs but unfortunately winds up dead and buried in the family garden. As…

Major Horror Movie Alert: Candyman 2020

If there was a horror movie I’d most like a reboot for, Candyman the story of an amputee who has a hook for a hand, a mesmerizing voice to fall spell too and who appears when you say his name five times while looking in a mirror, would be high up on that list. As…

13 Cameras

FILM REVIEW: 13 CAMERAS (AKA THE LANDLORD) ⭐️⭐️ In writer-director Victor Zarcoff’s low-budget yet decently made film 13 Cameras, newlyweds Ryan (P.J. McCabe) and Claire (Brianne Moncrief) move from New York City to California and plan to begin their new family. After renting a two-bedroom home from the exceedingly creepy landlord Gerald (Neville Archambault); a…

Isabelle

FILM REVIEW: ISABELLE ⭐️✨ Isabelle, directed by Rob Heydon stars Adam Brody and Amanda Crew as Matt and Larissa Kane. Overall the project has decent acting but quickly dies with an uninteresting plot and annoyingly cringeworthy cliches that prompted me to abandon ship several times before its ending. Matt and his expecting wife Larissa have…

Satan’s Slaves

FILM REVIEW: SATAN’S SLAVES (PENGABDI SETAN) ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ I am a big fan of international horror movies. One coming out of Indonesia is particularly creepy. Satan’s Slaves, a Shudder exclusive is a creep-worthy ghost story with a subtle twist on the zombie genre. After the death of their ailing mother strange occurrences begin. The family is…

They Nest (aka Creepy Crawlers)

FILM REVIEW: THEY NEST aka CREEPY CRAWLERS ⭐️⭐️✨ In this fun and mild insect movie that doesn’t involve spiders or ants, They Nest hatches an invasion of roaches onboard an African barge as it makes its way to a small island town off the coast of Maine. Dr. Ben Cahill (Thomas Calabro), recovering from a…

Candy Corn

FILM REVIEW: CANDY CORN ⭐️⭐️ Director Josh Hasty brings us back to the familiar Small Town, USA in Candy Corn, a fun new thriller that is as dense in plot as candy corn is full of nutrients. And while some folks enjoy a bowl of a mixed variety of chocolates and sweets others are perfectly…

Truth Or Dare (aka Truth Or Die)

FILM REVIEW: TRUTH OR DARE (released in the US as TRUTH OR DIE) RELEASE DATE: Britain 2012 ⭐️⭐️⭐️ We all know the awkward kid at the party who tries his hardest to unsuccessfully fit in. Most of the time he floats about seemingly, there one moment and then he’s not. No harm no foul, as…

The Hatchet Trilogy

FILM REVIEW: HATCHET PARTS 1-3 ⭐️⭐️⭐️ I find the Hatchet franchise to be a bloody good time! While I’m not terribly frightened by the films there are a few jump scares that made my heart skip a beat, but mostly the excessive gore and use of practical effects takes me to place where I appreciate…

Rufus (aka Hunted)

FILM REVIEW: RUFUS (AKA HUNTED) ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ It’s a fresh take on “vampire trying to escape the vampire hunter” genre. And it works well. When horror movies become sociology experiments the affect has somehow worked beautifully each and every time. (Think The Addiction, Nadja, The Transfiguration). With a very loose nostalgia for Twilight, Rufus (aka Hunted)…

Cabin Fear

FILM REVIEW: CABIN FEAR 2015 ⭐️ In 2015 (sometimes listed as 2016) Director Joe Bandelli decided to invest time, energy, money and resources in the American film Cabin Fear; not to be confused with two other great thrillers similarly named Cape Fear and Cabin Fever. Furthermore, while this try at horror is set in a…
