Forsaken Film Reviews – Is The Rezort (2015) just Jurassic Park with Zombies?

In my latest review, I look at a film whose plot bears some similarities to Spielberg’s classic Jurassic Park; only this time the guests are hunting down the world’s remaining zombies. Story (2/5) – The Rezort comes to us from the writer Paul Gerstenberger and had the working title of Generation Z.  The film takes place … Continue reading Forsaken Film Reviews – Is The Rezort (2015) just Jurassic Park with Zombies?

Compliance (2012)

Stephen King once said, “Monsters are real…They live inside us, and sometimes, they win.” This statement popped into my head while I was watching Compliance.  I also wondered if it was possible for a conscientious person to perform outrageous acts on another simply because someone of authority ordered them to.  At what point does an … Continue reading Compliance (2012)

Episode 50 (2011)

Episode 50 came out when movies were … Continue reading Episode 50 (2011)

Chemical Peel (2014)

Last week I rented two DVDs.  And yes, not all reviewers watch films for free.  I was really stoked about seeing one of these films, because the trailer was phenomenal.  The other DVD was an independent horror film that I wasn’t sure about.  Strangely, after watching both films, the one I was really excited about … Continue reading Chemical Peel (2014)

Starry Eyes (2014)

Starry Eyes is a clever film written and directed by Kevin Kolsch and Dennis Widmyer.  The story has many interesting “what-the-hell” moments before the story fully emerges in its final act. On the surface, this movie was about a woman named Sarah struggling to become famous, like the actresses that she pins pictures of to her … Continue reading Starry Eyes (2014)

Ghostlight (2013)

Sadly, many modern horror films use jump scares to give us moments of terror.  But how long do those scares last after exiting our seats?  Atmospheric horror immerses us in the creepy though, giving horror fan’s that primal excitement that we crave, even after leaving the cinema. Ghostlight certainly follows in the classic tradition of … Continue reading Ghostlight (2013)
