WILDLING Review

With curious fluctuations in tone, questionable motivations, a dull look and jagged editing that takes us out of potentially affecting moments, this tall tale feels slight.

What The Fest!? 2018: BLUE MY MIND Review

Though Blue My Mind gets intense and graphic in spots with Mia’s metamorphosis, it always feels grounded in the feelings and emotions of her situation, the horror elements left as effective allegory.

What The Fest!? 2018: REVENGE Review

Aided by an ’80s-style, synth-heavy score, Revenge excels on nearly every technical level, and while the plot fits neatly into the rape-revenge subgenre, it easily puts all others to shame.

CHILDREN OF THE CORN: RUNAWAY Blu-ray Review

The tenth, yes tenth, entry into the Children of the Corn series, Children of the Corn: Runaway, is now out on Blu-ray, and while I’ll immediately begin by saying that this is every bit as hokey and poorly crafted as what you might expect, it isn’t nearly as abysmal as the last entry in the series, Children of the Corn: Genesis.

DEMON HOUSE Review

Bagans' handling of this information turns what could be an interesting exploration of a strange phenomenon into a three-ring circus.

THE STRANGERS: PREY AT NIGHT

The clichés lay waste to a scenario and setting rife with possibilities, leaving Prey at Night a forgettable knockoff that won’t have the staying power of its predecessor or any of the genre classics it futilely copies.

THEY REMAIN Review

They Remain seems more interested in cribbing Alex Garland’s style than developing an aesthetic of its own that really fits the material.

The Lodgers 04 - Charlotte Vega as Rachel 4.5

THE LODGERS Review

Strong visuals alone can’t save The Lodgers from being a dreadfully average and dull horror experience however, and although my ears perk up anytime I hear about a new entry into this subgenre that sees far too few contemporary releases, this is one I have suggest viewers pass on.

ARE WE NOT CATS Review

Not since the days of David Cronenberg has the classical approximation of love as being the act of “giving a part of one's self to another” ever been more grotesquely literal than in Xander's Robin's destitute romance Are We Not Cats.
