Film Review: Piranha 3DD (2012)


I like to think that my tastes, for the most part, are broad and well-rounded. Yeah, I’m in a very deep and meaningful relationship with the horror genre, but we’re only monogamish; I also tend to gravitate toward any documentary I can get my hands on, any solid drama, any brainy comedy.

Book Review: “found. and other stories” by Todd Rigney


As genre devotees, we have all, at one time or another, looked at life through the filter of a horror movie.  Through them, we’ve learned to stay smart; to stay safe.  Usually, it’s simple, pragmatic things:  if there are children in your corn, RUN; reanimating your girlfriend’s corpse is never a good idea; the only […]

Film Review: The Human Centipede 2 – Full Sequence (2011)


I’m a little tardy to the party on The Human Centipede 2:  Full Sequence.  I know that by this time, it’s been reviewed many times over, and critics have vomited up their feelings on this weird little film all over the inter-tubes; it seems to be a pretty polarizing piece of work.  Personally, it made […]
