  • “NIGHT FARE” (Mile High Horror Film Review)

    ,,

    To call NIGHT FARE a weird entry into the horror genre is one hell of an understatement. It’s an incredibly well-crafted and exceptionally thrilling film that, at times, shows shades of JOY RIDE, THE HITCHER and THE MIDNIGHT MEAT TRAIN into the mix. However, it’s also a bit of a tonal rollercoaster, and while the entire experience is a damn fun time, some of the sharp turns on display are flat-out bewildering. While a lesser filmmaker would likely make those choices in a disjointed or erratic fashion, director Julien Seri works some unabashed midnight movie magic to make NIGHT FARE work as a strange, sinister new import you’ll have to see to believe.

  • “THEY LOOK LIKE PEOPLE” (Mile High Horror Film Review)

    ,,

    There’s a certain skill in creating a psychological horror film that feels ultimately human. While it was Norman Bates who reminded us that “We all go a little mad sometimes,” to tap into innately human fears that the average person can relate to is a difficult task, especially when so many filmmakers go for the explicitly surreal to heighten their scares. Yet it is the humanity of THEY LOOK LIKE PEOPLE that makes it so absolutely unnerving, playing up the everyday life of the characters and their unassuming normality before twisting the perspective into something much scarier.

  • “GRAVY” (Film Review)

    ,,

    As many horror fans know, horror comedies can be a tricky tonal tightrope to walk as there’s so many things to be considered. On the comedy side, the material needs to be funny, organic to the scary situations on display and respectful of the genre, lest you fall too far into the even trickier realm of genre parody. On the horror side, the material needs to be able to jump into comedy effectively and naturally while deciding how it will work in relation to audience expectations, either working towards genre tropes to set up the humor or work with the humor to subvert expectations. However, even if the horror and the comedy doesn’t quite jive, a strong cast, funny dialogue and messy practical effects can buy much good will, which is largely why James Roday’s directorial debut GRAVY works as well as it does.

  • “A CHRISTMAS HORROR STORY” (Mile High Horror Film Review)

    ,,

    To be completely fair, there were only few ways A CHRISTMAS HORROR STORY could have failed in this writer’s eyes. As a lifelong fan and supporter of anthology horror as well as having a soft spot for Christmas horror, a film that would blend the two (and effectively at that) would automatically have an advantage as opposed to your average, everyday fright film. And luckily, A CHRISTMAS HORROR STORY uses neither subgenre as a shameless gimmick, instead delivering a really impressive and diverse film that brings psychological and gory goodness in equal measure.

  • “GODDESS OF LOVE” (Film Review)

    ,,

    When a horror film- or any film for that matter- is subject to the independent production process, the sheer lack of budget and time to bring the story to reality is a true test to the mettle of a filmmaker. For some, the temptation to cut as many corners as possible and stretch out any given moment in an amateur attempt to get to feature length is an irresistible one. However, tried-and-true filmmakers rely on resources, passion and healthy collaboration to bring their story to life as authentically as possible. Jon Knautz certainly falls in the latter category, and in that regards, GODDESS OF LOVE uses its low-budget means to its advantage by crafting an utterly claustrophobic and bold film that is gripping from start to finish.

  • “COP CAR” (Blu-ray Review)

    ,,

    While foreign horror fans may know Jon Watts best from his yet-to-be-released-stateside debut film CLOWN, the filmmaker made one hell of an impression with his indie thriller COP CAR earlier this year. And upon watching the film, COP CAR is really worth the hype, offering a lean, mean story of unassuming children in fatal danger with an atmosphere that feels like a mix between Coen Brothers crime film with the pacing of a Micheal Haneke flick. And with a new Blu-ray from Universal Home Entertainment, viewers will have a chance to experience the flick in a whole new light thanks to a stunning 1080p transfer.
