The Deep Ones (H.P. Lovecraft Lo-Budget Stank Horror by Chad Ferrin)

  Ask most horror nerds why there’s never been a truly successful Lovecraft adaptation, and they’ll tell you it’s because Lovecraft never described his monsters, but chose to keep them in the shadows, and once you drag something ineffable into sunlight it loses its power. I call bullshit on that for a few reasons. First, […]

Exorcism (Paranormal Blair Witch in a Croatian Basement)

  Aww geez, a demonic possession film? Well, it had better feature someone’s head rotating 180 degrees, at least. While Dalibor Matanić’s Exorcism (Egzorcizam in Croatian, 2017) unfortunately does not feature anyone’s head spinning in half circles, it does nonetheless serve as a worthwhile addition to the expanding library of demonic possession films. Shot on […]
