FILM REVIEW: THE RANGER

One of the strangest genre offerings this year would have to be Jenn Wexler’s THE RANGER. After making its debut at SXSW earlier this year, this unusual little film has been making the rounds on the festival circuit ever since. It’s not a perfect film, but it’s something different, and

FILM REVIEW: ONCE UPON A TIME AT CHRISTMAS

FILM REVIEW: PORCELAIN STARE

I recently had the opportunity to screen Robin Rippmann’s short film PORCELAIN STARE, which comes to us all the way from Switzerland. I will be the first to admit that I have seen thousands upon thousands of horror films, and this is probably the first Swiss horror film I’ve seen.
