I asked myself a question the other day: will deer skulls ever not be absolutely terrifying? My answer is still, “no, get those things away from me.” They are creepy as hell, as Jordan Graham‘s folk horror film SATOR substantiates. The film is a backwoods nightmare wherein the forest and

FILM REVIEW: AFTER MIDNIGHT

When AFTER MIDNIGHT ends, you cannot help but start a conversation about it. The movie is an automatic spark that entices anyone to chat about its hidden point, and the clear intention of the very weird plot it carries to the end. I guarantee you that conversation will not end
