Underworld: A Love Letter

Underworld: A Love Letter

This post contains a ton of spoilers about the Underworld series. You’ve been warned. You know what I love about the Underworld series? Pretty much everything. It starts off as a solid vampire/werewolf (or lycan, in the parlance of the movie) action-horror series, taking story cues from Romeo and Juliet and visual cues from The Matrix. The first movie is a fun action movie with monsters that takes itself entirely too seriously. I will fight anyone who says otherwise. They…

Movie Review: Everlasting

Movie Review: Everlasting

This movie was very, very good. Now that I’ve captured you with an enticing introduction, let me tell you why it was good: The cinematography and the directing is some of the best I’ve ever seen in an indie film. This is an absolutely beautiful film and the performances from leads Adam David and Valentina De Angelis will simultaneously break your heart and leave you shaking with anger. Few movies have been able to shake me from early on and…

Hollows Grove: Movie Review

Hollows Grove: Movie Review

Synopsis: A group of charlatan ghost hunters head to a haunted orphanage to record an episode of their show, S.P.I.T. (Spirit Paranormal Investigation Team)  They allow a friend along to document their process, and end up talking about how they fake everything.  I have no idea why they do this.  Anyway, the orphanage turns out to actually be haunted and terrible things happen to this crew. Thoughts: The movie opens with Mykelti Williamson as director of the FBI, very seriously…

Breakfast: Trailer Talk

Breakfast: Trailer Talk

Do you all remember Dinner? The short film about Dylan and her monster-kicking habits? Well…Dylan is back. Behold, the trailer for Breakfast! Like Dinner, it looks like a no-budget monster romp written and directed by Aleksandra Svetlichnaya (who plays Dylan). “It’s not a sequel,” it promises. “It’s the next course.” This appears to follow two men who find an unfinished comic and – I assume – unwittingly start the zombie apocalypse. I get it, guys. We were all young once….

The Conjuring 2

The Conjuring 2

I know I’m a little late talking about this movie but I watched it last night as part of my Halloween Horror Night and boy do I have some stuff to say. This franchise is the perfect example of one step forward two steps back. For every single effective scene and beautiful cinematography trick, there’s a giant misstep that completely breaks any and all immersion. The first Conjuring movie suffered from this as well with the inclusion of Annabelle. That…

White Empress: The music I never thought I needed.

White Empress: The music I never thought I needed.

I don’t normally do music writeups but this is different. I was recently introduced to this band and they’ve successfully two burning questions inside of me. “What if horror was thematically more metal and what if metal could be more cinematic.” Ok. So those aren’t questions I had but in retrospect I should have probably asked them. I was sent the video to  Revenant which is a short horror film with accompanying music and had to watch it about 13…

31: Movie Review

“You know what they say: in Hell, everybody loves popcorn.” This film tells the story of a group of wealthy individuals that abduct and torture a group of travelers. The film opens on a strong note, with a black and white introduction to Doomhead (played by Richard Brake, in the most intersting performance of the movie).  Whether it was his psychotic smile or devlishly quotable lines, he stole the show every time he was on the screen.  Unfortunately, that can not…
