Polybius (2017) Horror Short

He’s gonna take you back to the past, to make a short movie that kicks ass. That’s right, this one is about none other than the Angry Video Game Nerd, James Rolfe, the architect of his own indie horror website, Cinemassacre.com. He has certainly outdone himself this time. For those who don’t know, James has played a character that became …

Lo Specchio Di Colore Giallo Dell’Anima (2017) Short Film Review

Grindhouse Films is a fine German purveyor of only the filthiest underground horror around. With numerous notorious titles under their belts, they have now completed their latest work. Lo Specchio Di Colore Giallo Dell’Anima, which means “Yellow Mirror Of The Soul,” is Grindhouse Films offering to the giallo gods. What I love about Grindhouse Films is that they are underground movie …

Night Train To Terror (1985) Retro Review

God bless the coked out ’80s. In a decade where anything and everything went, Night Train to Terror had it all. The best part is, it’s not just a single movie but three films crammed into one. The film is similar to Creepshow, Tales From the Hood and Terror Tract. However, rather than a completed anthology with three short tales and a …

‘Bloody Drama’ (2017) A 90’s Slasher Throwback

Slasher films of the 70’s and 80’s typically revolve around deranged mask donning knife-wielding monstrosities that often defy death. However, a new type of slasher emerged in the 90’s with films such as Urban Legend, Scream and I Know What You Did Last Summer. With motive driven mortal killers who hide in plain sight while strategically evading discovery, slashers were …

‘Unbearing’ (2017) A Short Film Review

I never really babysat when I was younger. Or even now for that matter. For me, there is something rather unnerving about watching other people’s children. Especially for strangers. You can’t help but think of every worse case scenario.  Maybe the movie, When a Stranger Calls (1979) had something to do with it. “Have you checked the children?” That line …

‘Hooker Assassin’ (2017) Deliciously Revengeful

I love revenge films. They’re empowering, exciting, and often heartwrenching. There’s something wickedly special about watching someone seek revenge on those who have tormented them. In the new horror short Hooker Assassin, the main character makes revenge a work of art. The short is directed by the lovely Misty Dawn as well as co-written by herself and Hanna Campbell. The …

Devil’s Acid (2017) Review

Coming to us from Gorilla Tree Films is Devil’s Acid, a romp through a single drug-fueled night featuring cults, blood, and possibly even the Devil himself. It is directed by Garrett Kruithof as well as co-written by himself, Eric Gibson, and Finch Nissen. Let’s get into it, shall we? Now first, talking about the plot of this film is… a bit complicated, to …

Lucio Rojas’ ‘Trauma’ (2017) Film Review

From Chile comes Trauma, one of the most controversial films I’ve had the pleasure of viewing, although not everyone will share this opinion, I’m sure. Right up there with A Serbian Film, Trauma breeds the same kind of discontent for the country’s political regime.  Straight out of The Optical Theater Festival, Trauma opens up with a scene so revolting and jarring, I …

‘Bullet Head’ (2017) Movie Review

It’s always fascinating to me to see what actors do in the latter parts of their careers, after they’ve made those two or three movies that cemented them as legends; do they go for the quick-and-dirty cash grab that they know will probably help pay for the next couple years’ mortgage (I’ll still never wrap my head around how Kevin …
