ere’s one that was mailed to me that I’d never heard about before. I had no idea what “Mimesis” even meant until later when its defined within the movie. It basically means to imitate. Which exactly what this movie does... Continue reading

Had this one in my Netflix Queue for awhile before I finally watched it last night. I expected crap from this flick but instead got a mixed bag. While the acting and production values were pretty decent, other then a few CGI scenes I didn’t care for, the overall plot was interesting... Continue reading

Cut (2000)

The cast and crew of the horror flick Hot Blooded get a shock when a mysterious killer slaughters their director. Now, each time someone tries to complete the film there's another brutal slaying. But a little massacre isn't going to stop the next batch of bright would-be filmmakers: They'll finish the film if it kills them -- and it probably will -- in this gory horror flick starring Molly Ringwald.

Not a whole lot to say about this movie honestly. It's pretty straight forward, nothing awful, but nothing great. Continue reading

But when the kids get to Madison County, the author is no where to be found and the towns people act like they haven't seen him in years. They also say that the killer never existed and the murders never happened.

I expected this to be garbage. Redbox users rated this as a horrible filmed in the backyard sort of movie. So, I was happy when it turned out not to be nearly that bad... Continue reading

I was contacted by the author to give this one a shot, and quite frankly I had no idea what to expect from this one. The cover and name obviously had something to do with a Jester... Continue reading

A weekend of island beach-house debauchery turns into a hellish nightmare for a group of friends when one of them loses an arm in a vicious shark attack. Worse, the pals soon discover that the waters are infested with dozens of the toothy predators.

I went into this one not knowing anything about it. I recall at one point back when it was in the theater seeing trailers, but I didn’t remember anything about it. Before renting it tonight I asked Facebook friends if they’d seen it and what they thought about it. Most said it was pretty crappy... Continue reading
