  1. TADFF Review: Hellmouth (2014)



    A throwback to cheesy and great horror movies of yesteryear, Hellmouth comes to audiences courtesy of John Geddes and Tony Burgess. Director Geddes is coming off his well-received Exit Humanity (which appeared at the Toronto After Dark Film Festival circa 2011) while writer Burgess is responsible for bringing genre fans films such as Pontypool and Septic Man (also a TADFF alum).

    Together they have teamed for Hellmouth which stars Stephen McHattie (Pontypool, Watchmen) ...

  2. TADFF Review: Suburban Gothic (2014)



    In 2012, I came across the hidden gem Excision. Directed by Richard Bates Jr., Excision was the type of film that horror fans love to find – a title that they knew nothing about starring a bunch of people that we never heard of that, upon screening, was much much better than the throwaway DVD we expected.

    Excision didn’t have us pacing the halls awaiting the next Richard Bates Jr. effort, but it did have us stand notice when his new project, Suburban Gothic was ...

  4. "Saw" Regular Kevin Greutert Unveils a New Horror: "Jessabelle" (2014)

    Returning to her childhood home in Louisiana to recuperate from a horrific car accident, Jessabelle (Sarah Snook) comes face to face with a long-tormented spirit that has been seeking her return -- and has no intention of letting her escape.

    "Jessabelle" is directed and edited by Kevin Greutert, who made his name as part of the "Saw" franchise crew (he was involved in all of them, and directed parts six and seven). Keep in mind, though, these may be targeting ...
  5. A Surprisingly Welcome POV Horror: Grace (2014)

    This is the story of Grace (Alexia Fast), an orphan whose mother died in childbirth and a father she never knew. These are her experiences in her college days and the terrible things that happen soon after.

    Up front, it must be said that this "Grace" has nothing to do with the film "Grace" from 2009 starring Jordan Ladd. This shared title is unfortunate, as it will likely confuse horror fans. On the plus side, this is probably the better of the two films, so if ...
