Brothers' Nest 2018

Brothers’ Nest Fantasia Film Festival 2018 Premiere

More Hot Movies From The Fantasia Film Festival— Brothers’ Nest

This Australian crime thriller encases a movie about sibling rivalry in a very special way. The two lead characters are actually brothers. They bounce off each other with a familiarity normally unseen in a film like this. One half of the duo is the driving force behind the film. This is not Clayton Jacobson’s first rodeo as director and it shows. Brothers’ Nest is not Clayton and Shanes first movie together either. They previously starred in a cult hit favorite called Kenny (2006) a comedy about porta-loos.

If you’ve not seen Kenny, I recommend watching the trailer on YouTube here.

Tigers Are Not Afraid 2017

Tigers Are Not Afraid Review

Are Fairytales Real or Just Imagined?

Because Tigers Are Not Afraid is set in present time, the layered and magical way the story is told really gives you something to think about after the credits roll and the screen goes dark.

When I saw the trailer for this Mexican horror, fantasy infused with childhood fairytales I knew I had to see it. Lucky for me it was part of 2018’s Fantasia Film Festival Line up. Now it’s coming to Shudder and will begin streaming from September 12th 2019.

Whether or not you believe that making three wishes will allow your dreams to come true, this darkly lit, shocking film by Issa Lopez will test your senses.  Lopez found a way to give the world some insight into the horrible drug wars happening right now not only in Mexico but mirrored in many countries around the world.Read More »Tigers Are Not Afraid Review

Microhabitat 2017

Fantasia 2018 Review For Microhabitat 2017

The Directorial Debut for Jeon Go-Woon

Fantasia 2018 is finally here and for me, it’s like Christmas. Microhabitat promised a story about a slacker choosing cigarettes and booze to not having a roof over her head and I couldn’t resist.

The movies this year are awesome and my schedule is full of movie watching goodness. To kick it off, I thought this romantic drama by Jeon Go-Woon was a good way to ease into things. After having written two previous films Familyhood (2016) and The Sunshine Boys (2012) this is her time to drive the directorial bus. How did she do?

Downrange 2017

Downrange (2017) Ryuhei Kitamura Full Movie Review

Downrange airs on Shudder.com 26th April 2018. If you like films set in single locations, then this is one not to miss. Directed by Ryuhei Kitamura who’s behind classics like Versus and Midnight Meat Train. It’s a simple premise done well. Don’t think about it, relax and just watch the movie.

#ChimeraTheMovie Chimera 2018

Chimera Strain 2018. A Science Fiction Movie for Science Nerds

This time I’m taking you to science fiction town and dragging you through some thriller and drama while I’m there. Maurice Haeems (writer/director) is a virgin for feature films. He is not, however, a lightweight. After careers in mechanical/fluid engineering, investment banking, and software he collaborated with former investors and made this film.

The casting was selected by Mark Tillman who also cast It (1990), MacGyver and Robocop (1994). It’s no wonder that casting for Chimera is tight. If you like sci-fi thriller movies, then you really shouldn’t pass this one up. It’s taken a while to release in theatres, but the idea is a really interesting one.

The title of the film has been given an additional word for release in theatres across the USA, Chimera Strain.
