Short of the Week: Sicko (2013)

Pitch: Sicko is a “A short experimental horror film, made in a grindhouse style…” featuring a serial killer nightly routine. Director: Luke Adey and Vincent Gallagher Origin: UK Quick Review: I don’t know how I feel exactly about Sicko since it’s not really original (it reminded me of Maniac, which is a good thing actually) but if […]

High Tension (2003) Review

Original Title: Haute Tension Synopsis: Two college friends, Marie and Alexa, encounter loads of trouble (and blood) while on vacation at Alexa’s parents’ country home when a mysterious killer invades their quiet getaway.

Friday the 13th (1980) Review

Synopsis: Camp counselors are stalked and murdered by an unknown assailant while trying to reopen a summer camp that was the site of a child’s drowning.

The Burning (1981) Review

Synopsis: A former summer camp caretaker, horribly burned from a prank gone wrong, lurks around an upstate New York summer camp bent on killing the teenagers responsible for his disfigurement.

Evidence (2013) Review

Synopsis: A detective hunts down a killer using video footage shot by the victims of a massacre at an abandoned gas station. My Review: I was not a fan of The Fourth Kind, director Olatunde Osunsanmi’s previous effort, and, while I liked Evidence better, there are still many problems plaguing this found-footage movie. First of all, it’s […]
