"Sakichi Sato gets a lot of credit for knowing that even when your movie features a sewage cannon, pedophilia jokes, and castration by rotten teeth you still need a character you can stand to watch over the long haul."
"While Vinyan is a beautifully shot film, it will most likely not please genre fans. It is more a horror film for art house snobs or members of Amnesty International..."
"Think 'The Wire' meets 'Silence of the Lambs' and you've got a good idea of where 'The Chaser' comes from."
"Atmosphere and striking visuals, an abundance of sly wit, several jolting surprises, and a handful of well-executed performances should keep most viewers satisfied."
"Splinter succeeds where so many similar, low-budget films fail, by squeezing incredible tension out of small, potentially insignificant setups and a very limited cast."
"From Within" is a moody, slow burner that has some good intrigue and a decent plot.
"Dying Breed had a decent setup for a double dose of carnage but fails to dig far enough into either aspect."
"Ultimately Ray Pye is an empty childish monster playing at life. His victims are troubled, wayward, and fledgling; lost but endeavoring to find a life beyond their pain."
"Solet intends for Grace to be a pro-woman film. I don't think he would dedicate it to his mother if he didn't think this were true..."
"Autopsy wastes no time in getting strange, which is more than a bit refreshing."
"It's a punch to the gut... a bleak and hopeless ending in a film that continually coaxes you into not giving up hope."
"Bad Biology is pure Henenlotter. It's sleazy, trashy, putrid, weird, funny, and uncomfortably vulgar - all at the same time."
"Perkins 14 is a great amalgamation of parts stemming from several different genres."
"Automatonophobics who check out 'Triloquist' for a cheap thrill will probably find themselves wondering if the filmmakers are as hollow-headed as the dummy in the movie. "
"Peter Cornwell has not created the finest of haunted house films. He has however, made a very nice attempt."
On the eve of what would have been Anthony Perkins 77th birthday, Tor takes a look at the sequel that almost never happened.
Casey's expectations may not have been in check, but he still enjoyed this Spanish mind-bender quite a bit.
Todd: "While the gems in this peculiar subgenre are worth their weight in platinum tumbleweeds, it would appear that crafting a decent western horror flick is a lot harder than it looks on paper.
Shelton: "It might be surprising that perhaps the most popular Korean horror franchise has never been tapped for a Hollywood remake..."
"This is the only film that I am aware of where nocturnal Frisbee enthusiasts serve as the deus ex machina."
"Sadly, this leaves you with an empty feeling on what could have been quite a fulfilling fast food horror film."
Equal parts Z-grade horror study and touching tribute to an obscure filmmaker who's no longer with us.
"...you have no choice but to give yourself over to its goofy, indescribably innocent charm."
Despite the unfortunate title, Shelton finds a lot to like in "Alien Raiders".
Tor takes a look at this lovingly crafted tribute to the horror hosts of his youth, and the new generation using the internet to pick up where they left off.
Casey says this micro-budget meta slasher shows tons of potential.
I'm sure the makers of "Killer Movie" had a lot of profound things to say about horror and reality television, unfortunately I couldn't tell you what any of those things are.
Although it contains fetishized torture, Shelton maintains the words "torture porn" are the last that could be used to describe this French powerhouse of a movie.
Jon says that despite some positive aspects, something about this remake is just "a little too easy".
Tor tries his best to praise this Norwegian stalk & slash, but runs out of back-handed compliments about halfway through.
So... short people are creepy, amiright?
Needless to say, it's weird...
Rob Zombie swings... and misses.
