FILM REVIEW: TiCK (Toronto After Dark Film Festival)

TiCK is the second short film by Toronto native Ashlea Wessel. It’s also her second short film (the first being INK) to play the Toronto After Dark Film Festival. I was a big fan of INK, but I found TiCK to be leaps and bounds ahead of it.   There

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: THE FAMILY WAY : COMING HOME

As a fan of all things serial killer I was intrigued by the synopsis of this short film. It’s a take on the “hunter becomes the hunted” tale which if executed well can create great tension and draw out some really strong performances. Building tension is tough to do in

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.
