I tend to not like movies about the military, which isn’t to say I don’t like war movies.  War movies have a lot of action and conflict and things constantly going on, and that tends to make them pretty interesting to watch as well as visually engrossing.  Movies about the military however can be quite […]

Sometimes I wonder why I volunteer to review so many horror movies.  I very rarely stumble upon a good one.  Every great horror movie I’ve ever seen is shown to me by a friend who vouches for it.  I do like the versatility of the horror genre.  There may not be many movies that are […]

Humans understand time through narrative. Our ability to organize events into a logical cause/effect order allows us to view time as moving ever forward with purpose. Our penchant for narrativization doesn’t end there though. We look at the motionless image of a painting and we narrativize it. We find an old photograph of someone we’ve […]

I came to the attention of directors Benson and Moorhead from their first feature film, Resolution, through a friendly recommendation. “Yeah man, you’d dig it” was what my buddy just randomly spouted out, as I was discussing not having seen a worthwhile horror movie in the last few months. The film managed to both blur […]

Olive Films has been making some interesting choices in films to distribute recently. Their new partnership with Slasher Video, for example, means they’ll be distributing some truly obscure shot-on-video horror films from the 80s and 90s. They have also been steadily releasing some films from that era that seemed unlikely candidates for Blu-ray like Robert […]

First off, this movie is a lot weirder than the title implies.  Done in the style of a 1950’s horror movie, Zomies from Outer Space is about a race of dome-headed aliens who come to Earth and start turning humans into zombies as part of their plan to conquer the planet.  Presumably, once the humans […]

A group of teenagers are hunted by a demonic presence out in the woods.  No, I didn’t accidentally watch The Blair Witch Project – just another in a long line of copies.  Remember like 20 years ago when Fox aired those “Masked Magician” specials in which a professional magician showed you a bunch of common […]

I’m not sure why every director feels the need to do a conventional teenage drama at some point in their career, but this is Uwe Boll’s (In The Name of The King) attempt.  Honestly, it’s better than a lot of similar movies I’ve seen, but I remain incapable of relating to these characters because I […]
