The Philadelphia Unnamed Film Festival, or PUFF as it’s affectionately called, has wasted no time making a name for itself in its brief three years in existence. PUFF is the brainchild of a few well-established genre journalists, and it’s clear that they love what they do. The small festival always
Coming to US theatres on August 31 is the French language, Belgian crime thriller LET THE CORPSES TAN. The film drew me in on the brilliant title alone. It has been and continues to be played extensively at film festivals around the globe and I have been hearing about it constantly.
THE CRESCENT has to be easily one of the most bizarre and stunning genre films I’ve seen this year. Coming out of the 2017 TIFF Midnight Madness program, THE CRESCENT has all the makings of a cult horror film, if it could just get out of its own artsy way.

Fantasia Film Festival has come to an end, it was a wild ride and I’m already looking forward to next year. The last film I’m reviewing from Fantasia actually premiered closer to the beginning of the fest, but it is one that I had to chew on for a while
As the 2018 Fantasia International Film Festival comes to a close, it certainly brought us all manner of genre treats. As is the case with most film festivals, the shorts program is often the strongest, and fastest selling ticket in town. Few fests do the shorts programs as much justice
Alright, I know what you’re thinking: “Not ANOTHER mockumentary about a symphonic, post-apocalyptic, reindeer-grinding, Christ abusing, extreme war, Pagan, FennoScandian metal band on a mission from Satan!” Trust me, I felt the same going into HEAVY TRIP (HEVI REISSU), which played recently at FANTASIA 2018. I decided to push my
