FILM REVIEW: PSYCHO GOREMAN

2021 is here! We’ve still got a long way to go, but hopefully some semblance of normalcy is in sight. I’m hopeful, at the very least, that we’re going to start to see some of 2020’s delayed feature films see the light of day. One of the films I was

FILM REVIEW: BRIGHT HILL ROAD

BRIGHT HILL ROAD is a road-side motel supernatural thriller from director Robert Cuffley and writer Susie Moloney. The setting in this little Canadian film is not quite the Bates Motel, although it does have some creepy medical textbooks in the reading room and a dark, spooky basement.   When Marcy fires

FILM REVIEW: CLIMATE OF THE HUNTER

In the last few years of the decade, horror films started featuring a more raw, animalistic vampire. This trend may have appeared as a way to distance the classic horror monster from the teen romance epidemic of the mid to late 2000s. In doing so, perhaps we have forgotten how

FILM REVIEW: POSSESSOR: UNCUT (TELLURIDE HORROR SHOW 2020)

Whoever said horror films can’t be smart, obviously hasn’t seen Brandon Cronenbergs’ latest film POSSESSOR UNCUT. I was lucky enough to catch this artistic bloodfest as a part of Telluride Horror Show’s closing night. Telluride always brings the heat on the final day of the fest, and the 2020 Shelter-In-Place

Interview: Brandon Cronenberg

With a name like Cronenberg, the eyes of film fans would most assuredly be on you with keen anticipation. But (and not to be blasphemous) let’s forget about David for a minute. Despite constant questions about and comparisons to his father, Brandon Cronenberg continues to prove his talent as a

FEATURE: TELLURIDE HORROR SHOW 2020

The 11th annual Telluride Horror Show kicks off this weekend (October 15th-18th), and like so many other fests this year, THS has taken itself online for the first ever Shelter-In-Place edition. Good to know the folks over there have a sense of humor about it. Honestly, nothing is more depressing

FILM REVIEW: NO ESCAPE

As the year 2020 trudges on in the midst of a global pandemic, it’s a miracle that new films are being released at all. Although it seems like a good time for VOD to be booming, it’s a weird time for distribution without the benefit of traditional film festivals to

FILM REVIEW: THE DARK AND THE WICKED (FANTASIA INTERNATIONAL FILM FESTIVAL)

When the Fantasia Film Festival announced its 2020 film lineup, one that immediately piqued my interest was Bryan Bertino’s THE DARK AND THE WICKED. I’ve been a big fan of the directors’ work since he burst onto the scene with 2008’s home invasion shocker THE STRANGERS. That particular film is

FILM REVIEW: FRIED BARRY (FANTASIA INTERNATIONAL FILM FESTIVAL)

As most of the world grinds to a halt, The Fantasia Film Festival pushes forward. Like so many other fests this year, Fantasia has taken itself online in order to keep its fans drenched in genre cinema, while also keeping them safe from a global pandemic. Many of the films

Thankfully our prayers have been answered and the Fantasia International Film Festival 2020 is going ahead! This year Fantasia is happening in cyberspace, screening virtually to Canadian audiences. The excitement of the festival is not so lost, as many films are showing as they would usually in Montreal. Though we
