Encapsulated Movie Reviews – Five New Indie Titles (And One Short!)

Sorry film freaks – only a meager five flicks for critical dissection this time out, but I also helmed a premiere this week (Go The Harvesters!) and there’s a short film review here too, so cinematically it’s a push.  In any case five very different movies below including a political one-man show, a romantic comedy, […]

Top 20: Aaron’s Odds & Ends of 2014

I enjoy putting together different year end lists, as they tend to function as a way for me to put emphasis on a lot of film that I would hope people check out at some point (or avoid, in the case of the ‘Worst of’ list).  This year, given how I have ranked a large […]

The Sacrament (Blu-ray Review)

I’m a big big fan of up and coming indie horror director Ti West.  He reached me in an incredible way with his breakout film House Of The Devil and I’ve been following his career with great excitement ever since.  His follow up, The Innkeepers was a great little follow up with a more modern […]

Ti West’s THE SACRAMENT Will Chill You To The Bone August 19th!

Ever since House Of The Devil, Ti West will always have my attention and my dollar.  I’m very interested in anything he does.  His latest effort, The Sacrament, I caught on VOD a few months ago as it didn’t play in any theaters here.  And its a pretty unique little animal he’s constructed.  Yes, groan […]

Lamb Next, Tiger Next, Fox Next, ‘You’re Next’ (Movie Review)

I was just talking about the effectiveness of simplicity in another review and now we have a simple and efficiently made horror flick, titled You’re Next.  Despite having been lingering around for a couple years, this is a horror flick that has maintained its positive buzz since debuting at the 2011 Toronto International Film Festival […]

You’ll Find The “Magic” In ‘You’re Next’ This Weekend (Movie Review)

So here’s a title that I profess to know nothing about going into the press screening last Thursday night at the brand new Alamo Drafthouse Lakeline here in Austin, TX.  Now come on, how can one turn that offer down?  I said the BRAND NEW Alamo Drafthouse!  I’m probably only the 100th person to have […]

‘V/H/S’ Brings On Grainy Anthology Horror

I love the idea of anthology horror films and wish there was more of them.  I love Creepshow, for example, and the most recent anthology horror flick that I really enjoyed, Trick r Treat, is another delightful entry as well.  I think it has to do with seeing lots of ideas packed into one feature […]

The Innkeepers (Blu-ray Review)

I’d been really interested in seeing The Innkeepers when I heard about the project and it being Ti West’s follow up to the excellent The House of the Devil. Spooky New England hotels, ghosts, demons, people crapping themselves in hotels where ghosts and demons live? Hell yeah! I should also make mention that I had […]

SXSW Film Festival: ‘V/H/S’ (Movie Review)

Back when V/H/S (which, for brevity and sanity’s sake, we’re going to call VHS from here on out) premiered at the Sundance Film Festival, the word on the street was that directors Ti West, Joe Swanberg, Radio Silence, David Bruckner, Adam Wingard, and Glenn McQuaid had crafted one helluva found-footage horror anthology:  reports had audience […]
