  • [Review] FF ’11: ‘Livid’ Creepy, Yet Weak

    Premiering at the TIFF before screening this past weekend at Fantastic Fest in Austin, Texas, I was a mediocre fan (yet enjoyed it quite a...

  • The Day

    " 'The Day' is so firmly entrenched in its post-apocalyptic style that it fails to cull together anything we haven't seen before. Add in questionable...

  • Juan of the Dead

    " 'Juan of the Dead' is a fun little zombie film...in a landscape where everyone and their mother are making zombie films, definitely stands...

  • [Review] FF ’11: ‘The Human Centipede 2 (Full Sequence)
