  1. Book Review: "Twisted Visions" (2017)

    As a regular reader of horror reference books, there is clearly a wide range of themes, approaches and overall quality. Some books are merely lists, while others are in-depth biographies or deep film-by-film studies. Some wade in the pool of psycho-babble and find meaning where it was never intended.

    For a film directed by a former pizza restaurant owner, THE ZODIAC KILLER is certainly not what one would expect, but rather something that can be enjoyed in all its lunacy - come on in, grab a seat and a slice, cause we're going to cut this one up into 8 pieces and slap it in a box for the delivery kid to carry out.

    Michael Walker could be considered an auteur, though not as well known as many directors who have been given that title. Working outside of the studio system, he has succeeded in both writing and directing his own pictures. ...
  5. Fantasia Film Review: "The Night Watchmen" (2017)

    Three inept night watchmen, aided by a young rookie (Max Gray Wilbur) and a fearless tabloid journalist (Kara Luiz), fight an epic battle for their lives against a horde of hungry vampires… and clowns.

    Where to begin on this one? First of all, it is hilarious, original, quirky, and a true midnight movie. Time will tell if this becomes a cult film, but it seems to have enough elements that repeat viewings are inevitable. Horror fans might be lured in by seeing the names James Remar ...
