Posted Apr 27, 2012
3.5/5 —— The Aggression Scale (2012) " The Aggression Scale feels like a cult classic in the making and pretty much has "midnight movie" written all over it. " — Dread Central
Posted Apr 27, 2012
2/5 —— The Fields (2011) " By no means is the flick terrible, it's just very bland and lacks any sort of thrilling aspects that one would come to expect from a 'thriller.' " — Dread Central
Posted Apr 19, 2012
