  1. Review: "Open Windows" (2014)

    A jilted fan (Elijah Wood) soon finds himself pulled into a deadly game of cat-and-mouse after he accepts the opportunity to spy on his favorite actress (Sasha Grey) via his laptop.

    This film has a strong beginning, showcasing a film within a film. In actuality, that film may be even more fun than the movie we end up seeing! What can be said for sure is that Sasha Grey is really blossoming; this role seems appropriate for her, and one might be surprised she was not cast as "herself". ...
  2. Not Your Average Ghost Story: "Housebound" (2014)

    Kylie Bucknell (Morgana O'Reilly) is forced to return to the house she grew up in when the court places her on home detention. Her punishment is made all the more unbearable by the fact she has to live there with her mother Miriam (Rima TeWiata), a well-intentioned blabbermouth who is convinced that the house is haunted.

    Let us begin with a short note on New Zealand horror, or New Zealand cinema in general. For many people outside the country, it begins and ends with Peter Jackson. ...
  3. "Late Phases" (2014): A Powerful Release From Dark Sky

    Wounded war vet Ambrose (Nick Damici) moves to a place where people are dying from mysterious circumstances.

    This is the most pleasant surprise in the horror genre in quite a while. Although a few films have caused a bit of a stir (including "The Babadook" and "Starry Eyes"), this may turn out to be the sleeper hit of 2014 when word of mouth begins on the DVD release.

    Werewolf films are few and far between, and good ones are even more rare. Although ...

    While the increasing issue of overzealous police procedures continue to be a hot-button issue here in the states these days, you've got to admit one least there isn't a werewolf/police officer out there running rampant!

    Not that I'm seeing that as a negative in any conceivable fashion, you simply have to look at the alternatives: would you rather get a little lip from a cop and suffer through a traffic stop where you could ...

    I recently had the opportunity to nail down an interview with someone whose work I've been addicted to for quite a while: Bill Oberst, Jr. While I've always thought of him as "the man who portrayed 1,000 maniacs," his face (and performances) will forever be etched into the world of indie-filmmaking for years to come. With the insane (no pun intended) response that the Facebook app TAKE THIS LOLLIPOP got from its initial posting, Oberst, Jr managed to ...
