shock till you drop
Werewolves have been used in the past to sink their teeth into themes of puberty, teenage angst, infidelity and sexuality, and fears of alienation and uncontrollable power.
Apparently, there is a holy war happening in the back woods of some backwater small town deep in the South in order to unleash the ultimate evil on the world.
There’s something pitch black, oily and gross flowing through the veins of Starry Eyes.
Without sound too hyperbolic, I genuinely believe writer-director Mike Flanagan is one of the genre’s most promising directors today.
Marriage is some next level stuff. It’s new, exciting, intense and scary. For some, it’s business as usual. A casual transition from dating to serious commitment to marriage.
Torture Chamber finds Jimmy, a young boy badly abused, kept in a cage, and subjected to exorcism in an attempt to rid him of his evil.
The Den is yet another POV flick with a twist. Instead of someone carrying around a GoPro and giving the viewer nausea with shaky cam syndrome, nearly the entire movie is seen from the view of a webcam.
When I was asked to write a review on The Returned, I happily accepted. I did my research on the film and immediately groaned.
