FILM REVIEW: THE SCOPIA EFFECT

There’s just no easy way to say it, THE SCOPIA EFFECT is not a good film. That being said, the film shows signs of craft and an emerging talent that may have just tried too hard to swing for the fences. My honest opinion is that the high concept elements

Film Review: THE BLACK CAT

Full disclosure, I was going to pass on reviewing this short film for FEAR FOREVER. Strictly on the basis that it is a little out of our wheelhouse. It’s not horror, genre, sci-fi or action. Do you know what it is? It’s a beautifully done spooky little tale that is

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: MOUNTAIN FEVER

Have you checked out Stephen King’s THE STAND? Just omit the “Devil” Randall Flagg, “Angel” Mother Abigail Freemantle, the massive journey to salvation and all the supernatural effects.

DR. FRIGHTMARESTEIN PRESENTS: THE BIRTH OF THE FEARBEAST

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: THE VILLAINESS (TORONTO AFTER DARK)

THE VILLAINESS (originally titled Ak-Nyeo) opens with one of the most badass fight scenes in recent memory. Seriously, the opening number (which feels like a single first-person shot) opens with such fire and fury that it’s almost nauseating. I mean that in the best of ways. Playing at this year’s

One of the more subversive offerings this time around is the superb vampire comedy EAT LOCALS. Not subversive in terms of being
