Review: Arcadian

‘Arcadian’ is a dystopian monster movie that packs an impressive amount into its lean runtime, leaning on strong performances to compliment some unique creature design, culminating in a coming-of-age drama with bite. The film opens at the end of the world. A weary Nicholas Cage makes his way along a ruined fortified wall, above it […]

Review: Butcher, Baker, Nightmare Maker

Despite its catchy but rather juvenile name ‘Butcher, Baker, Nightmare Maker’ (aka Night Warning) is a film somewhat ahead of its time with its challenging of social stereotypes and its inversion of the ‘final girl’ role.

Review: Crawl

With ‘Crawl’ Aja does for basements and alligators, what Niel Marshall did for the sub-terrain and cave creatures. An almost perfect blend of creature feature with a slasher sentiment, ‘Crawl’ is well worth your time if you’re a fan of either genres. The plot is deceptively simple. A young lady goes looking for her estranged […]
