⭐️⭐️⭐️1/2 out of ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ A beautifully shot slow-burn B-movie with a goofy looking alien, fun dialog, and a visceral closing act. Meteor showers, man. What's not to love?
★★★ out of ★★★★★ As a horror film Moloch really has everything you’d ever want. Well-placed scares. A little blood, but not too much. Ghost-ish characters. Possession — sort of. Pre-christian Low Country mythology. And even -- gasp -- pagan demon cults!
★★1/2 out of ★★★★★

Intensity:🩸🩸 out of 🩸🩸🩸🩸🩸

The horror western Ghosts of the Ozarks is a curiosity. It feels like a wholly original concept and yet it telegraphs all its plot movements. It is populated full of interesting characters with some pretty notable actors, but in their fun quirkiness, they end up playing like one-note caricatures. And, in spending most of its time world-building, the film fails to propel the story in any dramatic or scary way.

Aficionados of the weird, the wild, and the wonderful, prepare yourselves for two days of stimulating cinema as The International Fortean Film Festival presents its 2022 edition on September 2 and 3 in Gloucester, U.K. From the supernatural to cryptozoology to alien life and far beyond, the fest has selected a tantalizing array of narrative and documentary features and short films.
★★★★1/2 out of ★★★★★ A cosmic horror odyssey that never leaves the bathroom! Glorious is one hell of a film!
★★★ out of ★★★★★ Distress Signals is a micro-budget survival thriller, done simply, and executed well. This is a lost in the woods scenario, a story that we can all identify with. In its simplicity though, I found myself wishing there was more dramatic tension and more visceral threat. As thrillers go, this is more solitary drama than thrills.
★★★★ out of ★★★★★ The unique and stylistically powerful art of Mike Mignola is put into the shadowy spotlight of the documentary of the Hellboy artist. A documentary is only as interesting as the subject material, and Mr. Mignola proved to be a fascinating study of a complex individual and a late blooming artistic genius.
★★★ out of ★★★★★ Prepare yourself for a lot of lunacy and absurdity, and arm yourself with a heaping helping of willing suspension of disbelief, and you should have an entertaining time with Orphan: First Kill, the prequel to 2009’s Orphan.
★★★.5 out of ★★★★★ Many horror films try, but equally, many films fail to concoct the perfect period piece. Often times concepts for period pieces in the world of horror seem to be centered around someone’s uncle who has a really mint 1977 Trans Am. Seems like an easy tasked to build an entire film around some funky vintage clothes and a sweet ride, but more often than not it’s a task where many fail.
In this interview with It Hatched director, Elvar Gunnarsson, you will get a full upload of Icelandic folklore and history. So, not only will you be entertained, you're going to learn something! It Hatched has been getting rave reviews in its run through the festival circuit, and Elvar was generous enough to spend his time discussing how he made this remarkable film, an artistic and narrative showcase for the first-time director.
★.5 out of ★★★★★ Anthology horror films are so full of creepy goodness! Moral tales. Freaky through lines. Peculiar and off-putting horror hosts and narrators. They give us everything we desire in spooky bite-sized chunks. Until they don’t.

Intensity 🩸🩸🩸for gory action violence

Prey is a remarkable refresh of the old Predator franchise. For my money, this is the best action horror movie since The Descent, the best horror western since Ravenous, and could arguably be better than the original Predator. The movie has the best protagonist yet (Including Dutch), and the monster is better than ever. The movie is a transportive adventure, and who would have thought that this previously moribund series could find such fresh legs?

★★★★ out of ★★★★★ GWAR is the little band that no one has ever heard of, but absolutely everyone needs to know. Their horrifying musings are just that — horrifying musings. Don’t be mistaken there’s so much more this gore-filled party. So much more. After nearly 40 years they have perfected the art of soaking their weak and puny audiences with blood, guts, urine, and yes, semen. 
★★★1/2 out of ★★★★★ The Eyes Below is perhaps the closest thing to a real nightmare since David Lynch's 1977 opus, Eraserhead. If you have ever had dreams of being smothered, suffocated, or strangled, this is your unrelenting torment. Be mindful though, it also includes the occasionally repetitive tedium of a dream you can't get out of..
★★★★★ out of ★★★★★ Skinamarink is a mesmerizing work set in the dark of a nighttime home that finds two young siblings confronted by a chilling evil, with visual and aural approaches that make the proceedings all the more unsettling.
★★★★★ No matter whether you are a well-read aficionado of Forteana and high strangeness or a newcomer to the world of extraterrestrials, cryptids, and supernatural occurrences, Zelia Edgar's debut book Just Another Tin Foil Hat Presents is a delightful, entertaining read.
