Interview with Familiar Writer/Director Richard Powell and Producer Zach Green

Jun 13, 2012 No Comments

Richard Powell’s twenty-two minute short horror film Familiar draws us in using…well, familiar narrative devices (sorry) and then turns them upside down in a visceral climax that makes every one of those twenty two minutes waltz back in begging questions. Robert Nolan plays John, a middle-aged married father whose only light at the end of […]

Rage Movie Review

May 27, 2012 No Comments

Filmmaker Chris Witherspoon’s Rage is a small-budget exploitation thriller that packs a punch much larger than its budget would suggest.  Taut storytelling, tension so high it requires a parachute, and explosively violent action propel Rage past a significant portion of its indie peers.  Witherspoon’s got the directorial chops to do whatever his resources will allow […]

Apr 29, 2012 No Comments

Director James McTeigue has built up quite a résumé over the last two decades in cinema, including his directorial debut V for Vendetta and work on all three Matrix films.  The film I enjoyed most of his is one that others may not hold in as high regard, but I thought The Invasion was fantastic […]

The Cabin in the Woods Movie Review

Apr 15, 2012 No Comments

The Cabin in the Woods might be the most generic title for a horror movie you’ll ever hear, but I’m willing to bet it will be the most creative horror movie you’ll ever see.  Co-writer Joss Whedon has called the film “a very loving hate letter” to the genre we all love. This is a […]

Dexter Season 6 Review

Dec 25, 2011 No Comments

Editor’s Note: Spoilers ahead! DEXTER SEASON 6 is in the books and I feel like I should be in mourning.  No, not because the hit Showtime series is built on a foundation of death, homicide in particular, but rather it seems as though last year’s fear that the show had jumped the shark has in […]
