She Rises Movie Review

Apr 11, 2018 No Comments

Ohhhh Angus. Why? Michael, why? Why waste your considerable talents on She Rises, a low-budget, high-risk horror flick that had zero chance of success? I’m talking about Angus Macfadyen (Braveheart, TV’s Turn) and Michael Biehn (The Terminator, Aliens, Tombstone), a pair of screen veterans who certainly didn’t need the paltry paycheck from this $300,000 pile […]

Apr 03, 2018 No Comments

Spring has sprung, and with it comes a favorite holiday. Can you guess which one I’m talking about? No, not Easter, but it does have to do with grass.

Mar 21, 2018 No Comments

There is almost certainly nothing more horrible than your own body turning against you.

The Lullaby Movie Review

Feb 28, 2018 No Comments

Babies. They’re not for everyone. Sure, they’re cute, but they’re exhausting.  Better yet, sometimes their very existence can unleash all kinds of hell upon a naïve new mother.  In Siembamba, or The Lullaby written by Tarryn -Tanille Prinsloo and directed by Darrell Roodt, this seems to be the case. Now, before you stop me and […]

The Shape of Water Movie Review

Jan 08, 2018 No Comments

You watch any pre-George Romero horror movie and you know the monster is going to go after the hot blond.  There’s a certain Victorian sensibility to this, the contrast of the innocent maiden with the creature of darkness, though of course the trope was already old when St. George liberated a virgin princess from a […]
