  • Short Film Review: Zombie Chronicles: The Infected

    If director Marvin Suarez set out to make a comedy with his 26 minute film Zombie Chronicles: The Infected, then bravo, but the sad reality is that he actually set out to make a genuine horror film.

  • Short Film Review: The Misogynist

    Harlan (Pascal Yen-Pfister) is a photographer with the photographer’s equivalent of ”writer’s block”. He lacks inspiration in his work as of late.

  • Pilot Review: Overcrowded

    Imagine a sitcom where you had four characters who had the persona and intelligence of Cosmo Kramer from Seinfeld?

  • Interview With Timothy J. Cox

  • With Great Power Comes Great Responsibility

  • American Horror Story : True, Entertaining Psychological Horror

    I was thinking a while back, when shows such as Once Upon A Time and Grimm were announced, if we’re going to turn a new leaf, going for a softer side as far as entertainment is concerned, perhaps in response to all the zombie/vampire shows that have taken over lately. And then I watched American […]

  • Short Film Review: Terry Kendall and Orange Green (2011)

    Director Jim Jarmusch once said,’’ I have no desire to make films for any kind of specific audience. What I want to do is make films that… tell stories, but somehow in a new way, not in a predictable form, not in the usual manipulative way that films seem to on their audiences’’. Filmmakers like […]
