‘System Shock’ Review – Nightdive’s Remake Makes a Frustrating Leap to Consoles

Historical preservation has never been much of a priority in the gaming biz, with this commercially-driven industry preferring to chase after what’s trendy and in vogue, oftentimes at the expense of its own heritage. After all, there’s little profit to be squeezed from varnishing creaky retro titles that are well past their prime (and of […]

Rebooting and expanding upon Bryan Bertino’s chilling 2008 horror film in a brand new trilogy, all installments already shot as part of one continuous, overarching story, makes for one of the more ambitious horror endeavors as of late.

Lifetime’s ‘The Manny’ Is a Fun, Silly Take on ‘The Stepfather’ [Review]

You know that when prolific director Doug Campbell is involved in a thriller, it’s going to be a ridiculously good time.

‘Crow Country’ Masterfully Replicates PS1-Era Survival Horror [Review]

I’m always amazed that during the original PlayStation era, we were graced with a pair of survival horror games that would be two very different tonal blueprints for the genre going forward. Resident Evil became the model for the more B-movie route, with gory thrills and eerie mysteries, while Silent Hill would show us something […]

‘The Last Stop in Yuma County’ Review – An Insanely Fun Single-Location Neo-Noir Thriller

It’s easy to see why writer/director Francis Galluppi is already set to helm a new Evil Dead movie in the wake of his feature debut, The Last Stop in Yuma County. There’s a savage sense of humor and mean streak to Galluppi’s tense, dusty neo-noir western, even as it escalates the pressure cooker scenario. It helps that the film’s […]

“Pretty Little Liars: Summer School” Review – A Hot Girl Summer Turned Final Girl Summer

When I previously wrote my review of Pretty Little Liars: Original Sin, I mentioned that I was optimistic for the series to be renewed for another season, but questioned how the showrunners would be able to introduce a fresh batch of conflicts for our Millwood liars to tackle. After all, “A” had been apprehended! The […]

‘Something in the Water’ Review – Shark Thriller Swims into Familiar Waters

New shark movies these days often come with an overwhelming, not to mention frustrating sense of déjà vu. That’s largely because filmmakers have resigned themselves to rehashing the same ideas, over and over again. Something in the Water treads familiar waters, seeing as the characters here also find their vacation in ruins once they leave […]

‘Tarot’ Review – The Monsters Shine in Simple Gateway Horror Movie

Writers/Directors Spenser Cohen & Anna Halberg keep it simple with the PG-13 horror movie Tarot. Instead of a cold open to hook audiences on the horror, Tarot launches straight into introducing the group of seven friends partaking in a party weekend at an isolated manor. It’s there that they dabble with things they shouldn’t, setting in motion a […]

‘This Never Happened’ Review – New Tubi Original Is an Unoriginal Ghost Story

Tubi has been making strides with its original horror content lately, albeit small ones. For instance, director Ted Campbell’s first overtly horror offering, This Never Happened, shows how the popular streaming platform is progressing in the genre game while still having plenty of room to improve. These newer originals certainly look better than their predecessors; […]
