We all endure trauma in our lifetime, some more than others. It effects us in different ways based on the source of the trauma and severity of the trauma, as well as on our mental state.

As a huge fan of ’80s horror, I love practical effects. I recently heard of a short film, Slime, which was said to be chock full of practical effects and gore and I really wanted to see it.

Demon Hunter (2017) Movie Review

As far back as I can remember, I’ve always loved movies and TV shows with strong female leads. I attribute this to two things. 1. I was raised by a strong single mother. 2. As a child, I was introduced to the movie Buffy The Vampire Slayer and fell in love with the film (the TV show is one of …

Killer Party (2014) Movie Review

I’m hopelessly addicted to social media, which is a double-edged sword. On one hand, I spend way too much time on my phone instead of talking to those around me. On the other hand, I’m able to connect with indie filmmakers and discover new films. Such is the case with the horror comedy Killer Party. Three cheers for social media …

Cut Shoot Kill (2017) Movie Review

I would think that starring in an indie horror film is kind of stressful: the long days, the short pay, the stretched budget. I can only imagine that the filmmakers deciding to actually try to kill you for the sake of their film would bring that stress to a whole new level. That is the general idea behind Cut Shoot …

Breaking Vera (2017) Short Film Review

Last year, I reviewed the film Don’t Fuck in the Woods (read the review here), and one of my favorite things about the movie was Brittany Blanton, who absolutely kicked ass in the film. Awhile back, I saw on Brittany’s Facebook page that she was writing a short. That short became Breaking Vera, Blanton’s directorial debut. Producer Shawn Burkett recently gave me …
