[Review] The Blood of the Dinosaurs: Joe Badon’s Latest Leap into Lunacy Hits the Surreal Jackpot Once Again

When reviewing a Joe Badon film, words such as “ersatz,” “systematically,” and “avuncular” will never work. Nor will attempting diatribes or didacticism. His films are like surreal gossamer coated with Dadaist treacle. His newest work is the short film The Blood of the Dinosaurs, a prologue to his upcoming feature film The Wheel of Heaven, […]

[Review] Apps [Another Hole in the Head Film Festival]: South American Anthology Tackles the Horrors Hiding within Smartphone Technology

Chile/Argentina coproduction Apps is a horror anthology based around smartphone apps. Its segments are much like apps in that some work well while others are disappointing.  After the first segment of the good-looking but rather lackluster wraparound “Date Freak,” the film kicks into high gear with director Jose Miguel Zuniga’s “Eye Wolf,” in which female […]

Loosely based on accounts of a creature that is said to be the subject of one of the first Bigfoot sightings in Texas in the 1800s as well as in a more modern encounter, The Wild Man of the Navidad (2008 but receiving a new DVD rerelease) hearkens back to the heyday of 1970s docudrama […]

[Review] THE LAST RITE: A Solid Lead Performance Balances Out Plot Issues in This Possession Horror Film

U.K. horror feature The Last Rite mixes a few different elements of terror, resulting in an effort that tries to pack too much into one film but boasts some effective spookiness. Bethan Waller’s performance, especially during the second half, is enough to warrant a recommendation.  Waller stars as Lucy, a young woman who begins seeing […]

Writer/director/editor Joseph Covello shows that it is still possible, however, in his Canadian short film He Comes at Night. Covello does this […]
