PRIME TIME: a triple feature of slashing oddities

I wouldn’t exactly call all three of these slashers, even though there’s hacking and slashing in each one. It’s everything else going on in between the kills that kept me watching: werewolves, witches, ghosts, gut aliens, violent new wave band … Continue reading

PRIME TIME: Let’s Not Meet or we’ll get Fractured by the Ghastlies

Vampires, ghosts, demons, zombies, slashers… For me, there’s one film worth digging out of this wreckage of films from 2007 and 2008. REVERB (2008) I like the premise of this one a lot. It’s the execution that ruins it for … Continue reading
