MOUNTAINTOP MOTEL MASSACRE’s a mess. But a creepy one about the horrors of neglected mental illness.
Xavier Gens delivers a political piece of brutal body horror with FRONTIER(S)
With a low budget, SHADOW manages to tackle the realities and nightmares of war through a backwoods horror-type plot set in Italy.
A trip into the backwoods like never before! Slovenian rednecks and liquor await.
Nothing out of the ordinary here. Yet ROVDYR (a.k.a MANHUNT) packs a visceral, brutish punch all the same.
