Eric’s Review: Nati Morti (Born Dead) (Portland Horror Film Festival 2022)
★★★★ If you have a stomach for extreme violence
★★1/2 If you can’t handle it
Nati Morti will kick your ass, rip out your guts, and rub them all over your face. It is not, however, a non-stop gore festival. It has a big story to tell, and it has some moments of real poignancy. But, yes, you will need to be able to handle getting your guts ripped out.
Mike’s Review: Stag (Portland Horror Film Festival 2022)
★★★★ out of ★★★★★
We’ve said it before and we’ll say it again — comedy is a difficult task that’s made all the more difficult when it gets mixed up with its gory cousin, HORROR. To see it done well is one of the more pleasant sites that a horror fan gets to ever see.
The new film, Stag, by quadruple threat (actress, writer, director, and producer) Alexandra Spieth marries these two ugly cousins together perfectly — ironically in the context of a weekend bridal party.

Mike’s Review: What is Buried Must Remain (Portland Horror Film Festival 2022)
★★★.5 out of ★★★★★
There’s a very real chance that this film may be the first of its kind. True story. One of one. The first ever. Well, that might be a little bit of a stretch, but it’s unlikely that there are any other found footage horror films made by Syrian teens who happen to be refugees living Lebanese settlement camps. If there are others out there we’d sure love to know about them.
