3.5/5 60% Cold Sweat (Sudor frío) (2012) "You should no doubt appreciate the utter lunacy of Cold Sweat's gritty nightmarish tale and have as much of a blast (pun intended) as I did with it. " ‐ Dread Central
Posted Jan 20, 2012
3.5/5 26% Underworld Awakening (2012) "Beckinsale has never been better, the story and action finally blends together a bit more smoothly, and incorporating humans into the Vampire/Lycan war breathes a new life into the series. " ‐ Dread Central

3/5 33% Puppet Master (1989) "While the movie has terrific atmosphere and set designs, it's the iconic posse of killer puppets that have cemented Puppet Master in horror history as a campy cult classic. " ‐ Dread Central

Posted Sep 24, 2011
2/5 41% Straw Dogs (2011) "As psychological thrillers go, Straw Dogs is about as mediocre as they come. Every moment of tension that the film is trying to build toward in the third act blatantly slaps you right upside your head during the first and second acts. " ‐ Dread Central
Posted Sep 15, 2011

Posted Aug 10, 2011
4/5 No Score Yet Laid to Rest (2009) "Director Hall was able to create a slasher film with characters we care about but definitely doesn't take anything too seriously either, giving horror fans a movie that's both entertaining and a lot of fun to watch. " ‐ Dread Central

3/5 No Score Yet Cyrus: Mind Of A Serial Killer (2010) "Cyrus is a remarkably fresh take on sort of a stale subgenre these days. Anchored by great performances and a unique storytelling approach, the film is a great find for all those indie horror fans out there. " ‐ Dread Central

4/5 41% The Catechism Cataclysm (2011) "It has the potential to be a midnight cult classic that fans will discover for years to come. " ‐ Dread Central
Posted Aug 10, 2011
2.5/5 No Score Yet Dark Reel (2009) "Dark Reel comes so close to being a pretty decent horror flick but its being part ghost story and part slasher flick just end up making it seem like for me that someone filmed two separate movies and wove them together. " ‐ Dread Central
Posted Aug 10, 2011
4/5 45% Drive Angry (2011) "Drive Angry is fun-fueled exploitation bliss that hearkens to the golden days of grindhouse flicks and features the pure spectacle of the car/action movies of the 70s. " ‐ Dread Central

Posted Aug 10, 2011
3/5 No Score Yet The Grudge 3 (2009) "The Grudge 3 isn't perfect, and sometimes the film feels like it's trying a little too hard to emulate Shimizu's work. Ultimately though, the 3rd act left me feeling like the series had finally come to a satisfying resolution. " ‐ Dread Central
