“Awakening the Zodiac” Review

June 9, 2017 Blair Hoyle

Perhaps I’m in the minority here, but I find that films inspired by the case of the Zodiac Killer are consistently entertaining and worthwhile. Whether they be David Fincher’s technical masterpiece Zodiac, or Tom Hanson’s […]

“Dobaara: See Your Evil” Review

June 5, 2017 Blair Hoyle

The very existence of Prawaal Raman’s Dobaara: See Your Evil is kind of incredible. Despite the fact that Oculus was a moderate financial and critical success three years ago, it doesn’t really seem like the kind of […]

“Seoul Station” Review

May 30, 2017 Blair Hoyle

If Yeon Sang-ho’s masterful zombie horror film Train to Busan (review) taught us one thing, it’s that the director has no qualms about breaking hearts. His live-action debut is a beautiful, but soul-crushing, emotionally-draining story and […]

“Blackenstein” Blu-ray Review

May 29, 2017 Blair Hoyle

Black exploitation films from the 1970s are polarizing for a number of reasons. Created with small budgets and unbridled passion, some of these films reach legitimate greatness, while most fall short. William A. Levey’s Blackenstein is […]

“Dark Harvest” DVD Review

May 29, 2017 Blair Hoyle

For years now, Intervision has been releasing extremely low-budget, lesser known, and often underappreciated horror films from the ’80s and ’90s. Films like Things, Sledgehammer, and Dream Stalker are among the best their catalog has […]

“Wolf Guy” Blu-ray Review

May 21, 2017 Blair Hoyle

It should come as no surprise that Wolf Guy: Enraged Lycanthrope is an incredibly weird movie. Aside from its bizarre title, the film — which is based on a Japanese manga — is filled with […]

“Lake Bodom” Review

May 18, 2017 Blair Hoyle

It seems that every few decades, slasher films undergo a drastic change. What formally began in the 1970s came to a close in the early 1990s. What began with Scream eventually ended in the 2000s […]

“Good Morning” Blu-ray Review

May 15, 2017 Blair Hoyle

Yasujirô Ozu is best known for directing the likes of Tokyo Story and Late Spring; highly emotional dramas exploring the relationships among the members of traditional Japanese families. Both of the aforementioned films are absolute […]

“Hounds of Love” Review

May 10, 2017 Blair Hoyle

Australian serial killer films are consistently grim, harsh, and mean — as serial killer films should be. Unlike their American counterparts, true crime stories from the Land Down Under generally lack any sort of levity, and […]

“Another Evil” Review

May 4, 2017 Blair Hoyle

Finding the perfect balance in a horror-comedy is a difficult thing to do. Far too often, it seems, these films are so concerned with being scary that they forget to add the jokes — or […]
