FILM REVIEW: PORNO (FANTASIA INTERNATIONAL FILM FESTIVAL)

As FANTASIA 2019 rolls on, we bring you another review from the front lines. Our first review showed you the cerebral, absurdist comedy THE ART OF SELF-DEFENSE, which was admittedly NOT a horror film…So for our follow-up review we’ve plunged right into the heart of a faith-based comedic horror extravaganza

FILM REVIEW: THE ART OF SELF-DEFENSE (FANTASIA INTERNATIONAL FILM FESTIVAL)

THE ART OF SELF-DEFENSE is a film that is difficult to classify. It walks that razor-thin line between genres, making it a film that exists on its own little island of awkward. What I can safely tell you is that it’s funny as hell, a little disturbing, and well…just plain

FILM REVIEW: ROBBERY (TORONTO AFTER DARK FILM FESTIVAL)

It’s the 13th year of the TORONTO AFTER DARK (TAD) film festival and year after year, it just keeps getting better.  Much like Montreal’s FANTASIA film festival, TAD is not horror specific. These festivals are for sci-fi, genre, action, fantasy and more.  That makes for some really interesting and formidable

FILM REVIEW: LIFECHANGER (Fantasia Film Festival 2018)

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

FILM REVIEW: SMALL GAUGE TRAUMA (FANTASIA 2018)

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

FILM REVIEW: HEAVY TRIP (FANTASIA 2018)

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

As the 2018 Fantasia Film Festival rolls on, we bring you another review from the Montreal based festival. Our next film comes to us from the USA, by director Daniel Robbins. Robbins is no stranger to the horror genre, as he brought us the 2016 creature feature UNCAGED. Although his
