The Invisible Man and the Blind Girl

Wrapping his mind around the theme of loneliness, writer/director Xiao Ma collapses the walls of the natural order and tells a sweet story of an invisible man and a blind girl in the short film The Invisible Man and the Blind Girl. After years of being ignored by everyone, including his parents, William (Bryan Schany) … Continued

The Dirty Kind

Raymond (Duke Williams), a young private investigator specializing in divorce, gets too ambitious and takes on a case that involves more than just snapping pictures of cheating couples. While searching for the estranged daughter of a client, he discovers that she works as a stripper under the name Natalie Cottontail (Victoria Wallace). Natalie’s exploits bring … Continued

The Dead Don’t Die

I have to say that I’m a traditionalist when it comes to zombie movies. I prefer the older stuff, particularly the George Romero films. Dawn Of The Dead could be the only zombie movie ever made, and I think that would be enough. Movies like Shaun of The Dead that take their cues from Romero … Continued

We Are Gathered Here

Who doesn’t love a good wedding? It’s even more special if you’re part of the wedding party. You show up a day early, walk through the ceremony at the rehearsal, and then onto a fancy dinner. You go to sleep, wake up, and the festivities begin. Easy peezy, what could go wrong? What could go … Continued

About A Donkey

There aren’t many films out there for the hardcore donkey lover. The list is a pretty short one. Off the top of my head only Pinocchio (1940), Bachelor Party (1984), and Au Hasard Balthazar (1966) come to mind. Now, however, there’s a new addition, and this one is aimed at fans of indie dramedies. About … Continued

Shaft

The same sentiment can be applied to the film itself, which, despite its glossy, contemporary sheen and purported relevance, has a distinct … Continued

The Land

It’s not hard to remember that life in America was tough ten years ago. The housing crash was felt globally, and I personally felt the pain of losing my job of over seventeen years. We also forget that the much-maligned middle America suffered as well. This is the subject of The Land from Stephen Wallace … Continued

5 Cult Films that are Actually About Cults

Each offbeat flop and limited release comes with the caveat that, a few years down the line, it could achieve cult status. But how many of these films are actually about cults? It turns out a healthy chunk of them are. This could be because of the naturally eccentric nature of living in a cult. … Continued

Head Count

A HISJI is a vengeful thing Five times its name you never sing With skin pale white and eyes of green It’s something you’ve already seen Director Elle Callahan’s horror debut Head Count opens with this demon-summoning verse, perhaps bringing to mind the likes of Jennifer Kent’s The Babadook or Bernard Rose’s Candyman. Yet Callahan … Continued

Would You Like To Try Again?

What if life was like a video game. You drop a quarter in the slot, move your character down some path and you succeed or fail. Success means a new high score. Failure means you have a chance to try it again and do it right. This is the idea behind Michael Felker’s short film, … Continued
