Horror Review: All Through the House (2016)

house-1PLOT

A killer dressed as Santa Claus is stalking a small town on his way home, killing young women and castrating men.  This will be one Christmas painted red!

REVIEW

With Halloween coming up, it’s a perfect time for horror (well, all year round is perfect for horror), but I’m a sucker for Christmas horror films (Black Christmas 1974, Gremlins, and Krampus being some of my favorites), so I was super pumped when I initially saw the trailer for All Through the House.  It looked like a badass throwback to 80s slasher films, and the movie was just that!

Horror Review: Secret Santa (2016)

ss-1PLOT

A group of college students are gathering around for a secret Santa party to exchange gifts…but they are met by an unexpected guest with a few gifts of his own. 

REVIEW

I don’t need to say it anymore, but all of you know my obsession with slasher films.  I’m always looking out for new ones and when it comes to independent films, the slasher is still alive and kicking!  I was thankfully sent a screener of the new slasher film, Secret Santa, and it was a delight from beginning to end!

MINI HORROR REVIEWS – PART 2 – 2016

DON’T BREATHE – 10/10

Three young adults (Rocky, Alex, and Money) want to escape the trashy neighborhood they live in.  They learn a blind man lives alone in a secluded house with 300,00 dollars hidden in his house.  It should be the perfect theft, but they were so wrong.  Just because someone is blind, it doesn’t mean they’re helpless.

HORROR REVIEW: THE SHRINE (2010)

Shrine 1PLOT

Two female journalists and a male photographer head to Poland to find a missing boy and a story, but what they find is much, MUCH worse. 

REVIEW

Whenever I crave something I haven’t seen before, I head to Netflix and tonight the lucky choice was the 2010 horror film The Shrine, starring Aaron Ashmore.  I’ve heard mixed things about the movie, but the plot was interesting and the trailer intrigued me.  I went into the film expecting one film, but instead got something else entirely.  Did I like the film I got?

MINI HORROR REVIEWS – 2016

I have been slow on reviews this year, because in September my first novel is being released and I’ve been working with my publisher and editors to get it ready this year. I saw a few horror films this year I haven’t had the chance to review, so I’m gonna post a mini review and verdict for each film in one post.  Enjoy!

HORROR REVIEW: SAVE YOURSELF (2016)

SY 3PLOT

Five young women, who recently shot a horror film, are on their way to LA when they are kidnapped by a madman…and chaos happens. 

REVIEW

Save Yourself is a movie I’ve had my eye on for a while.  The word of mouth was fantastic and the trailer really knocked my socks off.  It sounded and looked like a great time, plus I am a HUGE fan of Tristan Risk, Jessica Cameron and Bobbie Phillips (who shows up in a cameo).  The producer was kind to send me a screener and how did the movie hold up?

Horror Review: Flesh for the Inferno (2016)

Flesh 1PLOT

A church youth group volunteers to clean up an old abandoned church, but something haunts the old school, and is not Caspar the friendly ghost. 


REVIEW

Richard Griffin is a new director taking the Independent world by storm!  He is a unique breathe of fresh air that always brings a flesh flair to his films.  His visual style is very reminiscent of old school Argento (back when he was still good) and a colourful John Carpenter.  When I watch his films, I feel like I am entering a teleport back into the late 70s/early 80s.  Even if the film doesn’t always work, he still brings his unique voice to the film…Flesh for the Inferno is no different…in fact I think it might be Griffin’s best film to date!
