FILM REVIEW: TIME OF MOULTING (FELLWECHSELZEIT)-FINAL GIRLS BERLIN FILM FESTIVAL

The Final Girls Berlin Film Festival showcases horror cinema directed, written, or produced by women and non-binary filmmakers. Though women continue to make a strong presence for themselves in the horror genre, chances like these are still an important event on the road to gender equality in the film industry.

FILM REVIEWS: THE BEST FILMS OF 2020

What a long strange trip it’s been…and I’m not talking about The Grateful Dead. I’m talking about the year 2020, or the year Covid-19 brought the entire planet to a screeching halt, or the great global dumpster fire…whichever you prefer. 2020 was in and of itself a horror movie in

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

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
