Directed by: George A. Romero
Written by: George A. Romero
Starring: Josh Close, Michelle Morgan, Shawn Roberts, Scott Wentworth, Amy Lalonde, Joe Dinicol, Philip Riccio, Tatiana Maslany and Chris Violette.
Distributed by: Dimension Films

Plot: A group of young filmmakers is caught up in the midst of a zombie apocalypse and records the events while struggling to survive.

The Good:
-Some good scenes and creative scenarios.
-Romero takes yet another fascinating look at politics through his zombie chaos, this time examining human nature itself when all humanity is lost and our need to record and watch tragedy.

The Bad:
-Some awful acting.
-Unlikeable, douchey characters.
-Some really awful writing. Seriously, a 70 year-old man dropped this many F-bombs in his script? And I quote "I just killed another man. I've killed five men today. And a woman." Oh, God please help me.
-Awful CGI blood and some horrid digital effects.


All In All: This is easily not Romero at the top of his game, and while not as awful as Survival Of The Dead this is a mess of a film. However, there are a handful of moments that shine just bright enough to make this one worth your time, however be prepared to suffer through a lot of bad acting, writing and effects to get to those moments.

My Rating: 5/10

6 Souls (2010)


Directed by: Marlind & Stein
Written by: Michael Cooney
Starring: Julianne Moore, Jonathan Rhys Myers, Jeffrey DeMunn, Brooklyn Proulx, Frances Conroy, Nate Conroy, Briana Wilson and Joyce Feurring.
Distributed by: Anchor Bay Films

Plot: A woman discovers that her psychiatric patient's multiple personalities are all murder victims and becomes embroiled in a mystery.

The Good:
-Original plot.
-Fantastic acting. Julianne Moore is as elegant and strong as ever while Jonathan Rhys Myers steals the show in a breathtaking performance. Jeffrey DeMunn is always an immense pleasure to watch as well.
-Solidly creepy.
-Actually requires it's viewers to think and treats it's audience with intelligence.

The Bad:
-It can be a little hard to follow at times.
-Not sure what it's trying to say.
-Cop-out ending.

All In All: This is a nice surprise. A strong little film filled with atmosphere and helped along by a cast of great performers. It's not perfect, but compared to most output in the horror genre as of late, this one deserves to be better remembered. I'm sure it'll become something of a cult classic as the years ware on. If you like your horror films intelligent and creepy you should check it out too.

My Rating: 7.5/10

Planet Terror (2007)


Directed by: Robert Rodriguez
Written by: Robert Rodriguez
Starring: Rose McGowan, Freddy Rodriguez, Josh Brolin, Marley Shelton, Jeff Fahey, Michael Biehn, Rebel Rodriguez, Bruce Willis and Quentin Tarantino.
Distributed by: Dimension Films

Plot: A group of survivors attempts to escape their small town after a leakage of deadly government chemicals causes a zombie outbreak.

The Good:
-A cast of likeable and "unique" characters, all played by great actors.
-The jokes frequently hit their marks.
-Beautiful cinematography.
-Awesome soundtrack.
-Rose McGowan with a gun for a leg.

The Bad:
-The story is pretty scant.
-A tad too bizarre.

All In All: If you're ready for a crazy, completely off the wall ride, then you'll enjoy this one. But it requires a very specific sense of humor. But if you're the right audience, then modern exploitation films don't get any better than this.

My Rating: 7.5/10

White Noise (2005)


Directed by: Geoffrey Sax
Written by: Niall Johnson
Starring: Michael Keaton, Deborah Kara Unger, Chandra West, Ian McNeice, Sarah Strange, Nicholas Elia and Mike Dopud.
Distributed by: Universal Pictures

Plot: After losing his wife in a supposed car accident, a man becomes obsessed with the phenomena of "EVP", a process in which the living can speak to the dead through sound and video recording devices.

The Good:
-Some creepy moments.
-Solid direction and cinematography.

The Bad:
-Moves way too slow.
-Not as shocking or original as it thinks it is.
-Phoned in performances from everybody.
-Instead of being a real ghost film, this one attempts to be some "grown up" version of Final Destination.

All In All: There's nothing even remotely original about this film. It's literally a collection of pieces from countless films ranging from The Ring and The Mothman Prophecies to Final Destination. Not really worth anyone's time, but it's not really awful at all, just mind-numbingly mediocre, unoriginal and boring.

My Rating: 5/10

Horns (2013)


Re-Watch

Directed by: Alexandre Aja
Written by: Keith Bunin
Starring: Daniel Radcliffe, Juno Temple, Max Minghella, Joe Anderson, David Morse, Michael Adamthwaite, Kelli Garner, James Remar, Kathleen Quinlan and Heather Graham.
Distributed by: Radius TWC and Mandalay Films.

Plot: After the death of his girlfriend, a young man is suspected of her murder although he is innocent. One morning he awakes to find strange horns sprouting from his head and soon discovers that his new features cause anyone near him to divulge their deepest secrets and darkest desires. With his newfound power he sets out to clear his name and find his girlfriend's true killer.

The Good:
-Truly original.
-Fantastic acting.
-Beautiful direction and flawless cinematography.

The Bad:
-It can be a little jarring your first time through. A second viewing is recommended.
-Rather complex and doesn't fully explain everything.

All In All: This is one of the finest horror efforts of the last few years, and the very type of film that proves that horror can be so much more than just blood and guts. For the viewer with an open mind and a suitable taste for pitch-black humor this one is amazing. A surefire cult classic to be.

My Rating: 9/10
