There’s a lot of BS floating around just now regarding the writing credit on William Barrett’s directorial debut Temple.

Last year Yeon Sang-Ho’s animated horror Seoul Station plotted the course of a viral outbreak in South Korea with solid, but not groundbreaking, results. The hype for Sang-Ho’s debut live-action film has been unparalleled and the reviews overwhelmingly enthusiastic. Thankfully its deserved.

Cary Hill’s debut film Scream Park belongs to the outer rings of straight-to-DVD Hell, its cardinal sin? Being dull as dishwater and twice as disposable.

Not surprising when you check out the horde of experienced producers behind the project, people like Todd Brown, Christian Becker, and Nate Bolotin, who collectively orchestrated films like […]
The feature film debut from writer and director Mathew A. Brown, Julia is a Neo-Noir rape-revenge film about a girl who is dragged into a shady form of cult therapy after a brutal trauma.
Body, from Dan Berk and Robert Olsen, is an odd, hilarious, and vaguely worrying film about a group of girls who fake a rape in order to clear themselves of an accidental murder.
