  • The Dreadful Ten: 10 Horror Films Featuring Creepy Neighbors!

    ,,

    Just this past week I overheard a young guy venting (loudly) about how strange it is to live in an apartment building. The strangeness, he said, comes from living right next to people that he doesn’t know in the slightest. We’re all so used to having neighbors that we don’t stop to wonder about these mysterious humans that are practically living on top of us. After all, many of us sleep with one flimsy wall separating us from the bedrooms of our neighbors.

  • Some Severe Situations #4: “Our Father”

    ,,,

    In this moment, John Riggi wasn’t so focused on the fact that he didn’t want to meet his father-in-law-to-be for a coffee, but that the man he’d soon call “dad” had immensely less a desire to meet with him. Martin Clavaster–father of Clarissa Clavaster—love of John Riggi’s life—was nothing if not the following three things: cockney, terrifying, and a hater of Italians. John Riggi, on the other hand, embodied all of the qualities a person like Martin despised, the most worrisome of which being a Sicilian heritage. This was a terrible match. But here the two of them were, in a small cafe, on a Sunday afternoon, just one week out from the wedding.

  • PUFF 2016: “BAD BLOOD: THE MOVIE” (Film Review)

    ,,

    No, not the ever-empowering Taylor Swift song: BAD BLOOD: THE MOVIE is a horror comedy by writer/director Tim Reis about a 17-year-old girl cursed with sudden and mysterious case of amphibious lycanthropy. In other words, she becomes a ‘werefrog.’ The premise of the film is utterly ridiculous in a good way. A werefrog movie with sick kills and bizarre humor a la AN AMERICAN WEREWOLF IN LONDON? Where do we sign up!?? It’s full of slime and is certainly enjoyable and a fun time given the right crowd. However, BAD BLOOD: THE MOVIE suffers from tonal issues which leave it feeling stilted towards the end.

    To some, he’s an independent film auteur, a contemporary among the likes of Quentin Tarantino, Robert Rodriguez, and Steven Soderbergh. To others, he’s a gonzo horror filmmaker, producing bold and original visions of viscera that play with tone and content unlike any storyteller working in the genre today. And to many more, he’s one of the forefathers of fandom, who has used speaking tours, comic books, podcasts, and the internet to help bring geek culture to the mainstream in a major way.

  • Event Report: The First Annual Philadelphia Unnamed Film Festival

    ,,

    In an old mob joint down in South Philly on one rainy day in October, something amazing happened: Philadelphia got a taste of something special. Of course, I am talking about this past weekend’s Philadelphia Unnamed Film Festival (PUFF), which this writer attended during their eclectic Saturday, the day they screened their International Oddities collection of shorts. This diverse selection of horror, sci-fi, and bizarre shorts from around the world mirrored the tenor of the festival overall. While the mission statement for the festival said it was to ‘hang out and watch great movies with cool people,’ it didn’t take long to realize something else was going on there.
