When watching independent films it’s important to keep an open mind. They are seen as being more experimental and don’t tend to follow typical tropes laid out by bigger-budgeted works.

I am one to hold the belief that not all movies need to break new ground. However, the most important aspect of a film for me is the story and its ability to draw me in.

One of the first series of books, that I can remember, to do this was Scary Stories t...[Read More]
When most people think of monsters the words beauty and art don’t come to mind. However, there is a real beauty that lies in the details of monster creation and design.

Fortunately, the creators of the fil...[Read More]
Pawarumi is a Sci-Fi action arcade game with a focus on shooting and dodging enemy attacks. The aim of the game is to take fans of this genre back to the glory days of 80s arcades when games like Galaga reigned supreme.

B-horror movies are meant to break from the mainstream and, instead, be a celebration of ridiculousness and border the line of comedy. Heads bursting, over-exaggerated reactions, and just buckets of gore are tropes littering these sorts of films. It’s good old-fashioned horror fun and something that isn’t seen much today. Filmmakers who choose to make a b-horror film usually earn my re...[Read More]
