Hush (2016)

I was skeptical when I saw the Blumhouse signature, but I have to say that this movie surprised me. Blumhouse typically churns out Friday-night teen horror flicks ridden with jump scares and cheap tricks, but Hush (2016) actually broke out of the typical mold I'm so used to seeing with Jason Blum. The director, Mike…

Vhs: Viral – US Release today!

Today's the day. VHS: Viral (which is basically VHS 3) comes out tonight! The first two gave found footage a reason to continue its existence, in my opinion. Though many people compare them to ABCs of Death, I find the VHS series to be much, much better than that. (I hate ABCs of Death with…

My Review of Mockingbird (2014)

And I Fell In Love Instantly: I was browsing the DVD section at Walmart the other day when I noticed this film. I picked it up and noticed two things - 1) It was created by Blumhouse. 2) It was also a collaboration with the people who made The Strangers. The Strangers is my favorite…

The challenge requires entrants to create short films, specifically in the horror genre. Though this one did not win first place (it only…

My Review of The Act of Killing (2012)

The hallucinatory result is a cinematic fever dream, an unsettling journey deep into the imaginations of mass-murderers and the shockingly banal regime of corruption and impunity they inhabit." If you haven't heard of this…

My Review of Maniac (2012)

FIRST SCENE I had NO IDEA that we were looking at the girls from the stalker's POV until he spoke. That was fabulous. I want some questions answered. Who is this guy? Why is he following Judy? Does she know him and if so, how? It's obvious that she is freaked out by his car…
