  • “GREEN ROOM” (TIFF Film Review)

    ,,

    Following up his award-winning grimy art house thriller BLUE RUIN, writer/director Jeremy Saulnier returns with an even more intense and satisfying film that goes straight for the jugular (at times, rather literally). Pitched somewhere between siege and survival horror, this punks vs. neo-Nazis tale (you know, that old chestnut), is a harsh and vicious little genre effort laced with just enough cynical humor to qualify as sterling entertainment. It’s a nasty movie that, above all else, confirms Saulnier’s versatile talents and provides genre fans with enough raucous entertainment to likely earn itself a bit of a cult status somewhere down the road.

  • “THE WITCH” (TIFF Movie Review)

    ,,,

    Set in the paranoid and devotedly religious period New England and told in a manner that blurs the line between the imagined and the supernatural, Robert Eggers’ THE WITCH is one of the more remarkable horror debuts in recent years. Eggers takes the material and period detail quite seriously, so a romp this is not as terrifying as it might be. Perched somewhere between the art house and gore lore, the film is an ideal genre entry in film festivals that will worm its way under the weathered skin of film snobs and genre aficionados alike. It’s not an easy horror ride, but an enjoyable one worth taking, especially for those with a longstanding fear of goats.

  • INTERVIEW: “BLOODY BIRTHDAY” director Ed Hunt talks new film “HALLOWEEN HELL”

    ,

    Serious genre film fans are aware of the name Ed Hunt. And certainly, even general horror hounds know the man’s work. The U.S.-born Hunt made his name North of the border in Canada, helming a series of rickety exploitation films in the early 1970’s, including the Christopher Lee-starring sci-fi potboiler STARSHIP INVASIONS and the following year’s thoughtful, award-winning apocalypse thriller PLAGUE. The 1980’s saw him spit out a pair of oddball masterpieces in 1985’s outrageous and disturbing BLOODY BIRTHDAY and 1988’s literally cerebral monster mash THE BRAIN, the latter of which this writer has had an unnatural obsession with for decades.
