  1. Review: All Cheerleaders Die (2014)



    I still donít know what to make of writer/director Lucky McKee. It started strong with May (2002) which I thought was a wonderfully crafted drama/thriller that put McKee on my radar. His venture into television as director of the Masters of Horror episode titled ĎSick Girlí was ok, but didnít capture my attention as much as May. Then came The Woods (2006) and Red (2008) which were both relatively competent, but hardly memorable. The Woman (2011) was definitely memorable and made ...

  2. Review: Willow Creek (2014)



    I have just about had it to here (hand raised to just below my nose) with found footage films. The genre that was brought back into the mainstream thanks to the successes of The Blair Witch Project and the Paranormal Activity franchise is an easy way for anyone with a video camera to put together something that resembles a film.

    The low production costs and potential high ...

    I love lists. I also love horror films. So you can imagine my unparalleled glee when I heard of Shock Till You Dropís documentary 50 Best Horror Films Youíve Never Seen. The doc lists fifty lesser-known horror films counting down a half-hundred titles of films that every horror film should see.

    The film has various directors and historians introducing each new entry and they give a quick synopsis of the spotlighted film sometimes highlighting their favorite scenes. ...

  4. Review: Only Lovers Left Alive (2014)



    I am all vampired out. Hate to admit it, but itís true. And I have been all vampired out for quite some time. The fascination with the fanged undead started to peter out in the 90ís after From Dusk Till Dawn and Interview with a Vampire. Since then, we have been vampired to death at the theatre and on television with countless vampire movies/series just in the past 20 years. Vampires that sparkle (Twilight), vampires in comedies (Dark Shadows), television vampires (True Blood), ...

  5. Review: Godzilla (2014)



    I first met director Gareth Edwards back in 2010 when he came to the Toronto International Film Festival to promote his sci-fi alien flick, Monsters. The conversation was brief but clearly evident was Edwardsí love for film and his mature understanding on how to get his vision captured on film. Two years later, word came that Edwards was tapped to reenergize the Godzilla franchise that was mangled by Roland Emmerichís gawd-awful 1998 adaptation and recently had its rights purchased ...
