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: UNCLE PECKERHEAD

When punk culture was inevitably co-opted and absorbed by the Hot Topic crowd sometime in the 90s, the remnants of the “real shit” retreated back where it belongs- sketchy basements and $1 beer dives.

FILM REVIEW: RELIC

Sometimes a horror film is well…more than just a horror film. That’s sort of the beauty of the genre. It can be a mindless slaughter-fest, or it can be a cerebral challenge that forces us to deal with our fears from a safe distance. It can be confrontational, it can

Alright, so I don’t know the last time you sat down and watched an Indian horror film but for me it was never. I watched the screener of TONY (MY MENTOR THE SERIAL KILLER TONY) with an open mind and ready for whatever the film would throw at me. Between
