The Good Things Devils Do Movie Review

Sep 23, 2020 No Comments

Low-budget horror films are kind of a category unto themselves. When it comes to a critique, you’re somewhat honor bound to review them on their terms, taking into account the penny-pinching science that goes into special effects, scoring and, of course, casting.

Widow’s Point Movie Review

Sep 08, 2020 No Comments

Personally, nothing beats a well-crafted haunted house story. Perhaps my affinity for them is rooted in the fact that they are just so damn hard to get right. For every The Changeling or The Others, there is a Walmart bin of lazy attempts and half-baked ideas that simply miss the mark. Which brings us to […]
