FILM REVIEW: AWAKENING THE ZODIAC

Last night my boyfriend was talking about his fears of going to Tampa for Thanksgiving as there is an active and elusive serial killer on the loose. The most recent victim was killed today. They have no leads and no suspects, just some grainy security camera footage. Now, imagine that

FILM REVIEW: MAYHEM (TORONTO AFTER DARK)

MAYHEM played at the Toronto After Dark Film Festival this month. My schedule did not allow me to go see it when it played in the theatre, so I watched it at home.  Before I delve deeper (and reveal some spoilers) I will say this: If you get the chance

FILM REVIEW: HAPPY DEATH DAY

HAPPY DEATH DAY is a film that on a quick glance of the trailer could be written off as just another one of the countless whodunit slashers that employs your standard package of the straight-from-central-casting crew of beautiful, white, sun-kissed, cult-like/abusive levels of narcissist personality disorder that are gift-wrapped nicely

FILM REVIEW: RIFT (PHILADELPHIA UNNAMED FILM FESTIVAL)

RIFT (Rökkur) is an Icelandic film that is as stunning and slow moving as the glaciers that surround our two lead characters.  Set in an extremely remote and secluded area surrounded by water, glaciers and dotted with mostly abandoned cabins and huts, Einar (Sigurður Þór Óskarsson) has retreated to his

ART EXHIBITION: GUILLERMO DEL TORO – AT HOME WITH MONSTERS

I had the privilege of being invited to preview the traveling exhibition of art and memorabilia that usually reside in “The Bleak House“.  Owned by visionary director Guillermo del Toro, the house is legendary due to it being less of a house and more of a love letter to monsters,
