Citadel (REVIEW)

Midway through Ciaran Foy's “hoodie horror” film I had to pause the film in order to catch my breath and stretch my legs. Citadel had the rare effect of unnerving me to my core. You would think that watching hundreds of genre movies a year and knowing a bit about how the sausage gets made would inure me from such occurrences but there I was, remote in one hand while the other wiped off the cold sweat that had broken out .

Atrocious (REVIEW)

"Paranormal Activity" seemed to spawn a dozen copycats almost overnight with its massive success in 2009. The low budget, haunted house, easy to make found footage format was easily replicable for amateurs and studios alike. "Atrocious" appears at first glance to be a Spanish stylization of the film until its abrupt final twists rip off "The Shining" with such audacity its hard to fathom.

Netflix Instant Watch: "Videodrome" (1983)

Who doesn't love "Videodrome", a sci fi horror film written and directed by David Cronenberg, starring James Woods and Blondie's own Debbie Harry. Set in Toronto, James Woods plays Max, the CEO of a small cable station that stumbles upon a broadcast of a television show airing extreme violence and torture. As Max presses further into the Videodrome signal, he begins to lose touch with reality in the form of violent, bizarre hallucinations. The movie is jam packed with beautiful camera shots, great set design and the seamless blending of the characters' hallucinations with their realities.

Netflix Instant: "The Impaler" will leave you scratching your head

It's a documentary... about a "vampire"... running for Governor of Minnesota. Probably the one place where a guy like that would have a chance. Watch the layers of the onion peel back on this fascinating study in self delusion.

Netflix Instant: "The Hazing" (2004) is calling my name...

I'm supposed to watch something else to review for the site today but I can't stop staring at this title in my Netflix Instant queue. Tiffany Shepis is an evil siren... (slight NSFW trailer after the jump)
