  • PUFF 2016 Presents: “DEAD BODY” and the Modern Murder Mystery, plus Giveaway/Ticket Announcement!

    ,,

    For almost as long as the horror genre has been around, so has the murder mystery subgenre. Whether it’s tale of dubious claims on grand fortunes or veiled metaphors for sexual repression, murder mysteries often depicted enigmatic lunatics that were often revealed to be the character you’d least suspect. And as the horror genre evolved, the murder mystery would later become a major element to many other subgenres, including the slasher genre (ala Wes Craven’s SCREAM) or serial killer thrillers. Sadly, the genre has gone somewhat dormant as of late, with possession and supernatural tales reigning supreme at the box office.

  • “TRAIN TO BUSAN” (Film Review)

    ,,

    As an American relegated to only briefly glimpse into the wide world of Korean Cinema, it’s been rewarding to see a cinematic culture redefine subgenres that Hollywood could only dream of doing. Whether it’s the serial killer thriller with I SAW THE DEVIL, the creature feature with THE HOST, or, in this instance, the zombie film with TRAIN TO BUSAN, Korean filmmakers have been able to subvert expectations and create truly emotional, multidimensional stories that effectively mix drama, humor, action, and horror. And in the case for TRAIN TO BUSAN, all those elements naturally compliment one another while presenting spectacle and adult-oriented blockbuster entertainment that captivates the audience from start to finish. In fact, Yeon Sang-ho’s TRAIN TO BUSAN so effectively crafts a heartfelt story and pulse-pounding set pieces that one may almost forget that the film is an unabashedly proud horror title.

  • “BLAIR WITCH” (Film Review)

    ,,

    When reviewing a film, there’s much to be taken into account, but at the end of the day, a critic’s job is to review the film and only the film. Sure, one could spend their whole day discussing the various impacts of the film’s marketing, the early hype, the legacy of films that came before it, or even what the film signifies in the bigger picture of modern cinema. But for a critic, a review should focus on their personal experience to the film in question, without any outside elements weighing upon their expectations. In lesser terms, you’re not reviewing what the film should be, but rather what the film is. And in the case of Adam Wingard’s BLAIR WITCH, the film is a perfectly fine horror offering whose pedestrian nature is actually hindered by the occasional stroke of brilliance that the filmmaker and his frequent collaborator Simon Barrett bring to the table.
