Honor Student (2015) Not Your Average Horror Short Review

The titles of movies to me are always so intriguing. I’m always wondering in what way do they have to do with the movie itself.

Reptilicus

Not only is Reptilicus an early 1960’s Danish-American giant monster movie, it’s apparently the only Danish giant monster movie. How does it hold up?

Stark Contrast: A Look Inside ‘The Dark Half’ (1993)

Directed by George A. Romero, Stephen King’s The Dark Half is a complicated film, with much of the storyline being open to interpretation. It’s also just a fun horror movie, Hoss. To be honest, I have not watched The Dark Half recently, yet many of the plot details and imagery are somehow fresh in my mind. More importantly, I remember the …

The Dark Tapes (2017) – Found Footage Meets Anthology

Found footage films seem like such a simple concept to execute. They are one of the most highly debated horror movie genres. They are also relatively easy and cheap to pull off, so the level of creativity and inspiration aren’t always of the greatest quality. However, there are some original and cutting edge found footage films out there that took more than …

3 Hours Till Dead (2017) – Movie Review

The horror community has been inundated with zombie movies over the past decade. It seems as if every walking dead trope has been done – slow zombies, fast zombies, unkillable zombies, talking zombies, pet zoombies, soldier zombies, zombie hordes, radioactive zombies, virus-infected zombies, rabid zombies… we’ve even had intelligent zombies. The synopsis for Gravitas Ventures’ 3 Hours Till Dead actually sounded a bit …
