The Neighbor, written and directed by Marcus Dunstan (The Collector, The Collection, Saw IV), follows John (Josh Stewart, The Collector, The Collection, Transcendence), a middleman pushing coke in the bum-fuck, middle of nowhere which is Cutter, Mississippi.

Rampage: President Down (2016)

I know, I know, technically Rampage: President Down (Uwe Boll, Alone in the Dark, Assault on Wall Street) isn’t a horror film but it is a thriller and the overall theme of the film is unnerving enough for me to feel compelled to write about it  (plus the death toll is insane). Brendan Fletcher (Freddy VS Jason,…

The Neon Demon (2016)

The Neon Demon, Nicolas Winding Refn’s latest masterpiece, has been the victim of ample scrutiny and the judging eye of an illiterate and uncivilized movie going audience for the past couple of months since it’s release on June 24th.

Well Emelie (Michael Thelin, 2015) is that girl times ten.  In Thelin’s feature narrative debut (he normally does live shows and musician interviews according to his…

The Poughkeepsie Tapes (2007)

If you’re like me (and I am very forgiving), you probably have seen what seems like 100,000 found footage or “documentary style” horror movies. They all enjoy a shaky handheld camera, give no apologies for form or quality, and ultimately it’s up to the writing and acting to convey all of which you cannot see….

The Mind’s Eye (2015)

“Zack Connors and Rachel Meadows were born with incredible psychokinetic capabilities. When word of their supernatural talents gets out, they find themselves the prisoners of Michael Slovak, a deranged doctor intent on harvesting their powers.
