Beyond The Gates

Star Rating: 4 out of 5 stars I have to be honest, Beyond the ameaates is a horrible film. There is absolutely nothing redeeming about it. The acting is stale. There's no emotional depth to any of the characters. The story is filled with massive jumps in logic, and the climax comes and goes so quickly … Continue reading Beyond The Gates

The Belko Experiment

Star Rating: 3 out of 5 stars It's not very often a film can be as violent as The Belko Experiment and also smart. The last film in recent memory that felt fresh and exciting while also having a fun, smart, and intelligent premise was The Cabin in the Woods. But, where The Cabin in the Woods … Continue reading The Belko Experiment

It's another great … Continue reading 28 Days Later

How does a director go from directing two low budget horror comedy/monster films, a weird, disturbing, adulterated version of the muppets, a crime drama, and a somewhat higher budget horror comedy and then the Lord of the Rings trilogy? I believe the answer lies … Continue reading The Frighteners

We Are Still Here

Star Rating: 1 out of 5 Continuing with the horror film trend I've set up for myself (it is October after all), I decided to watch We Are Still Here, a movie that was on several lists of the top 10 horror movies in 2015. I had watched one trailer for the movie and decided I … Continue reading We Are Still Here

The Hallow

Star Rating: 2 out of 5 stars A popular sub-genre of horror movies is the so called "dark fairy tale." These are stories that take mythical creatures and imagine them as something more vicious than what we remember from our childhood or they twist the story of Little Red Riding Hood into some modern-day murder … Continue reading The Hallow
