    After Midnight

    ★★★★★

    Gardner, Stella, Benson and Moorehead are a match made in heaven. This one feels a lot like Spring, only less touristy and more southern gothic. 

    It’s a beautiful story of loss and love, and the perseverance to bridge the gap between the two. And then it becomes a horror movie. Gardner and Brea Grant are so convincing and heartbreaking. Zebrowski’s comedy just plays so well into the plot as well. I’d love more of this in the future.

    ★★★½

    VFW is 100% grindhouse style, midnight madness. It’s chocked full of cheesy lines, dirty people, and more fake blood than anyone can stomach. 

    Joe Begos outdid himself, once again.

    Fangoria putting their stamp of approval on this one should tell you everything you need to know

    Just like Bliss, this feels like a film that was unearthed from another decade. 

    Do yourself a favor and check this one out. It’s surely going to make our best of the year list in 10 short months.

    The story is great and weird and so far out. Nic Cage acts his ass off and they let him off the chain to be wild and…

    Gareth Evans’s Apostle is The Wicker Man for 2018. A slow burn mystery in its first half, and a goretastic ride in its second half. Dan Stevens kills it in this role, as a man searching for his kidnapped sister, taken by a strange cult. Its stylish. Its creepy. Its violent as hell. There is some Wicker Man here, some Silent Hill, theres even a few scenes that he managed to sneak his style from The Raid into. This movie was well worth the wait.
