THE DONUT KING Review

The Donut King is a fascinating story of the promises (and blunt realities) of the American dream for one Cambodian refugee.

ATTACK OF THE DEMONS Review

The unique and masterfully executed animation is worth the price of admission alone, but the thoughtful homage to classic monster movies and the frequent comedic injections make this a fun, albeit rough around the edges, spook show.

SYNCHRONIC STILL # 604 8

SYNCHRONIC Review

After their debut with 2012’s glorious low-budget mindfuck, Resolution, Justin Benson and Aaron Moorhead have been producing hit after hit, with their clever genre mashups that always keep the audience on its toes. With every release we can see them hone their

THE MORTUARY COLLECTION Review

This is a repost of our review from Fantasia Festival 2020. The Mortuary Collection will be available on Shudder October 14, 2020.

Although the anthology film has been a mainstay in the horror genre for decades, it’s been a few years since

THE WOLF OF SNOW HOLLOW Review

Back in 2018 (which feels like a lifetime ago), I became completely enamored with Jim Cummings’ feature debut, Thunder Road, a dry, dark comedy about a police officer slowly succumbing to his emotions after the death of his mother. Impeccably written and

SHIVERS Blu-ray Review

Director David Cronenberg is the master of the body-horror sub genre, and his 1975 film Shivers (also known as They Came From Within in the States) is one of the first to inspire that moniker.

LITTLE MONSTERS Blu-ray Review

Even though I was a rabid fan of horror as a youngster, I wasn’t allowed to watch the really heavy stuff as a kid, so I had to find as many kid-friendly scary movies as possible. Richard Greenberg’s Little Monsters from 1989

BOY BEHIND THE DOOR, THE (1) 6

Fantastic Fest 2020: THE BOY BEHIND THE DOOR Review

Reminiscent of 2016’s home-invasion thriller Don’t Breathe, David Charbonier and Justin Powell’s kidnap thriller The Boy Behind The Door is an undeniably suspenseful, albeit often misguided, story about two best friends fighting for survival after being abducted.

Setting aside the inconsistent messaging,

RED, WHITE & WASTED Review

It may be almost as messy as the trucks heading back from the Yacht Club, but movies like this are a gateway into the nooks and crannies of our country and serve as a sociological time capsule of this time and place.

THE OWNERS Review

We’ve seen it before: would-be burglars get more than they bargained for when they decide to break into the wrong house. As clichéd an idea as it may be, it still manages to be one that is rife with opportunity, and Julius

The Paper Tigers 1 8

Fantasia 2020: THE PAPER TIGERS Review

Reminiscent of a Kung Fu version of Uncle Drew and even the recent Cobra Kai TV series, Quoc Bao Tran’s feature debut, The Paper Tigers, concerns the lives of three former Kung Fu prodigies who must overcome their past conflicts and now-middle-aged

PVT Chat 2 2.5

Fantasia 2020: PVT CHAT Review

Playing out like some kind of perverted fantasy rather than a deep rumination on obsession and addiction, Ben Hozie’s PVT Chat may mean well, but its misguided finale sets the wrong tone on a subject that’s becoming more relevant as more sex
