  • Dead Within 2014

    ★★★ Watched 21 Oct, 2014

    Indie horror at it's finest. By the poster, lack of many special effects, and only two actors on the bill, it's apparent that they didn't need much of a budget to achieve this film.

    I was drawn in by the plot : set six months after a (or THE??) zombie apocalypse, a couple's mental stability is wearing thin. The female has never left the house even, and we never gain a full grasp on the chaos happening outside besides the…

  • Horns 2013

    ★★★ Watched 13 Oct, 2014 2

  • Deadgirl 2008

    ★★★★ Rewatched 24 Jul, 2012 4

    I've seen this film about four times, and according to most people, that's 3 1/2 times too many.

    I know why I really enjoy this film and why most others don't as well. The premise is original and the characters were great. Though Shiloh is not the best actor, Noah stole the show and plays an engaging anti-villan.

    I assume most of the audience can't get past that these guys are using a dangerous, insane naked chick for sex. BUT if you can stomach that, the way they display carnal urges is interesting, in my opinion.

    A nice, new rape-revenge movie of the new age.

    ★★★★½ Watched 21 Jul, 2012 6

    A great little gem of a film. I hadn't heard of it before until it was recommended to me. I am not a fan of 70's horror/gore due to terrible effects and acting, but this really worked! The gore was frightening and the characters were engaging. I really enjoyed this flick.
