    The Lords of Salem

    ★★★½

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

    A surprisingly conventional horror outing from Rob Zombie. I’ve been late to the Zombie party and have been slowly playing catch-up. From what I’ve experienced so far - Zombie has a great eye for style and writing memorable villains, but doesn’t do so hot with writing conventional characters - specifically the protagonists. This must have made Lords of Salem quite the challenge for him, as it plays like something you’d expect out of just another modern horror director in terms…

    A sometimes forgotten founding father of the found footage movement. First of all, it’s so cool that this movie exists. It’s cool from a historical perspective when something comes along and revolutionizes all that comes after - such as The Blair Witch Project.

After a day of on and off reflection I think I’m finally ready to get it all down satisfactorily. Saint Maud is aptly titled as this movie is all…

    The Sadness

    ★★★★½

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

    A ludicriously gory zombie survival film that eschews the typical sappy story for maximum violence. Through advertisements and Shudder disclaimers they did a good job of preparing anyone tuning into to wach this one that it was going to be a rough ride, and right they were. The Sadness slaps, stabs and eye maims its 100 minute runtime with only brief reprieves in the atrocities on screen. While there are some typical parallels drawn between the savagery of mankind and…
