SHORT FILM REVIEWS: ANDREW J.D. ROBINSON

There’s nothing quite like viewing the work of up and coming filmmakers as they test their visual tool belts and flirt with all the possibilities of the medium. Behold the beauty of shorts! They are the unavoidable rite of passage for anyone that is serious about making movies.  A pragmatist

MUSIC: ITCHY-O

Having lived in both Chicago and Denver, I’ve seen my fair share of outrageous musical performances. These performances span the musical spectrum from the use of pigs’ blood by Swedish metal maestros Watain, to the smoke and lights of French DJ Madeon. I’ve seen a lot of great shows, and

FILM REVIEW: SHHHH

(Editors note: I couldn’t find many stills for the film so I Googled “Assholes In Movie Theaters” and the images that came up are most certainly of the kind of assholes in movie theaters that would/should die in this film.)   Apologies in advanced for the hacky box art one-liner,

FILM REVIEW: ELIZABETH HARVEST

Nothing can exist without its opposite. You can’t have love without hate, reality without fantasy and especially creation without destruction. Thanks to writer-director, Sebastian Gutierrez , ELIZABETH HARVEST is a film that dissects and artistically displays the contradictory and horrifying dynamics of love. The film starts off as a vastly

FILM REVIEW: LIFECHANGER (Fantasia Film Festival 2018)

Fantasia Film Festival has come to an end, it was a wild ride and I’m already looking forward to next year. The last film I’m reviewing from Fantasia actually premiered closer to the beginning of the fest, but it is one that I had to chew on for a while

FILM REVIEW: SMALL GAUGE TRAUMA (FANTASIA 2018)

As the 2018 Fantasia International Film Festival comes to a close, it certainly brought us all manner of genre treats. As is the case with most film festivals, the shorts program is often the strongest, and fastest selling ticket in town. Few fests do the shorts programs as much justice

FILM REVIEW: HEAVY TRIP (FANTASIA 2018)

Alright, I know what you’re thinking: “Not ANOTHER mockumentary about a symphonic, post-apocalyptic, reindeer-grinding, Christ abusing, extreme war, Pagan, FennoScandian metal band on a mission from Satan!” Trust me, I felt the same going into HEAVY TRIP (HEVI REISSU), which played recently at FANTASIA 2018. I decided to push my

As the 2018 Fantasia Film Festival rolls on, we bring you another review from the Montreal based festival. Our next film comes to us from the USA, by director Daniel Robbins. Robbins is no stranger to the horror genre, as he brought us the 2016 creature feature UNCAGED. Although his

Film Review: ROKUROKU: THE PROMISE OF THE WITCH (Fantasia Film Festival 2018)

Fantasia Film Fest has been delivering the weird and wonderful as well as the scary this year. With a tonne of Japanese content this year I couldn’t pass up the chance to see at least one film from the country. What made me choose ROKUROKU: THE PROMISE OF THE WITCH
