POPULATION ZERO – found footage review

OK, OK, OK. It’s a fake documentary, as FAUXumentary, if you will. And it’s not a horror film. Not to ruin any sort of mystery for you but it’s better if you know going in or you will spend the entire film wondering what will happen to spookify it all.  It’s not there.  This isn’t… Continue reading POPULATION ZERO – found footage review

HOWARD’S MILL – found footage review

File this under - Movies that seem ‘real’ but aren’t.  This isn’t real. There, that’s out of the way.  As I have mentioned before, there is a very subtle art to making ‘fauxumentary’ / ‘mockumentary’ films. You have two masters to serve, the documentary, and the fictional film. In the end, you are making a… Continue reading HOWARD’S MILL – found footage review

Oh, Hey, It’s Tubi!

Ya know, I have to admit that I was very, very late to the Tubi game but man alive, I am all in now. Tubi, for those who may not know is a free streaming service (owned by a bigger entity, thus allowing them to exist) that allows you to stream movies for free. We… Continue reading Oh, Hey, It’s Tubi!

Dashcam – found footage review

REVIEW! Hey you, it’s a review.  I don’t rhyme often, until I do.  That totally ties into this movie and this review.  I SWEAR IT! Anyway.  There are movies that are sit down, think about, contemplate, and question your life movies. Those are great. They are amazing. They open your mind to the world around… Continue reading Dashcam – found footage review

Following The Streams

Maybe you’re like me and don’t want to be hurt again.  You tried, you trusted, you opened your heart up and you got burned.  You got burned good.  So good that it stings just to think about it and you swear, NEVER AGAIN all while you eye the new shows about to hit the streamers… Continue reading Following The Streams

Fan-Dumb

It gets exhausting being a fan. It’s hard enough to keep straight the reboots, prequels, sequels, offshoots, and all the merchandise that comes out in every flavor possible without then having to ask yourself - am I one of THOSE fans? And the THOSE in this case are the fans that take things not just… Continue reading Fan-Dumb

GODFORSAKEN – Found Footage Review

One of the great sins I am finding with a lot of found footage films is the idea of creating so much of a tease that there’s no real way to pay it off. They are so desperate to make the movie exciting and interesting and scary that they don’t really think of how they’re… Continue reading GODFORSAKEN – Found Footage Review

FOLLOWERS – found footage review         

If there is something ripe for capturing when it comes to found footage it’s the prevalence of influencers and social media celebrities and how they film everything they do. I think most of us roll our eyes when we see the word Influencer but, like it or not, these are the people that are creating… Continue reading FOLLOWERS – found footage review         

FIRESTARTER (2022) – review

Firestarter is not one of the books most King readers point to as their favorite book of his. It’s also not one of the books that, upon mention, people moan over and gnash their teeth about. For me, I have always loved the book. Seen 100 yards away, it’s interesting that his early work featured… Continue reading FIRESTARTER (2022) – review

The Fires That Drive Us

           There are topics that I come to time and again because I feel like we need to hear some things more than once. We need that sort of a mantra that keeps us going. That ‘I Think I Can, I Think I Can, I Think I Can’ sort of thing that fuels us through… Continue reading The Fires That Drive Us

Just What We Always Wanted

           You get the feeling that this old coal cart is speeding towards broken track? Sure, we might jump the gap and come out on the other side just fine and zoom off into the distance. Or we could tumble over into the abyss, never to be seen again. That feels like where we’re at,… Continue reading Just What We Always Wanted

The Widow – review

           Oh, you wily little movie, you. You almost had me. Well, OK, let’s be honest, you did have me. I went into this film thinking it was Found Footage. I was on my endless trek through the wonders of the found footage subgenre and happened on this import. It was dubbed, but that was… Continue reading The Widow – review
