FEARNET Movie Review: 'Locker 13'

The end result is a 95-minute anthology that somehow manages to feel about three hours long. That the filmmakers are going more for "ironic thriller" than full-bore "horror" is not the problem.

FEARNET Movie Review: 'Knights of Badassdom'

The "likable nerds who mistakenly conjure a monster" premise is, of course, nothing new, but there's a bit of novelty in seeing it used in LARP culture and, again, the cast does a thoroughly impressive job of making the good gags shine

FEARNET Movie Review: 'Wolf Creek 2'

It's been almost a decade since the rough, tough, and memorably grim Aussie import called Wolf Creek helped to usher in an international wave of graphically intense horror films.

FEARNET Movie Review: 'The Mule' [SXSW 2014]

The new Australian film The Mule is not a horror film -- although, yeah, I bet we'd all love to see a flick about a man-eating, rabid mule. Nor is The Mule exactly a suspense movie or a "thriller" in a traditional sense. So why are we reviewing it at FEARNET?

FEARNET Movie Review: 'What We Do in the Shadows' [SXSW 2014]

It's so simple a comedic concept that many filmmakers would walk past it due to sheer obviousness: a mockumentary about a handful of very old yet very childish vampires who sometimes try to assimilate into the modern world but mostly stay cooped up in their New Zealand estate so they can bicker about each other and bitch about the modern world.

FEARNET Movie Review: 'Housebound' [SXSW 2014]

"A troubled young woman is convicted of petty felonies and forced to withstand house arrest in the home of her estranged mother, blank slate of a stepfather, and a bunch of evil spirits who make creepy noises..."

FEARNET Movie Review: 'Among the Living' [SXSW 2014]

Among the Living starts out with a wonderfully disturbing prologue that could easily work as its own short film, but the central story is about three 14-year-old troublemakers who, on the last day of school before summer vacation, decide to skip school, cause trouble for a local farmer, and basically enjoy one of those lazy adolescent afternoons in which three young pals can feel cool, tough, and invincible.
