    ★★★½

    I really enjoyed this, at least for what it was. Stumbled upon the soundtrack first and had to find out how a short form Giallo could play out. Imagine taking a few minutes from the beginning, middle, and end of a film and removing all dialogue. That's essentially what was made.

    Tension is surprisingly present as scenes of the killer stalking and killing are mixed with scenes of the protagonist driving, news clips of the killer's exploits, and the killer's…

    ★½

    I was hoping to enjoy this, just wasn't there for me. While it wasn't the worst found footage movie I've seen, it was absolutely not worth the wait.

I was going to drive myself crazy until I watched it, so at least I can mark it off my list.

The creature design reminded me of Cloverfield's monster and a Licker from Resident Evil, but the element of powerful hearing gave them a fresh spin. Was hoping to…

    Invasion of the Flesh Hunters

    ★★½

    This review may contain spoilers. I can handle the truth.

    I'l start by mentioning that to me, this wasn't a horror film. This was a hodgepodge of action, cannibalism, biker revenge, and even soft erotica, with some suspenseful moments. I won't go into an in-depth review, as that's been done numerous times. Will just share some thoughts.

    Apparently part of the virus is gaining a deep comradery with previously afflicted, as they immediately have each other's backs as soon as the common infection is noticed. John Saxon still remains cool…
