Rating: Not Rated Stars: Aislinn Ni Uallachain, Dillon White, Brian Fortune, Paddy C. Courtney, Elaine Hearty, Anna Davis Writer: Martin Robinson Director: Eric Courtney Distributor: Virgil Films Release Date: May 12, 2015 The found-footage genre, that friend to every filmmaker who has a tale (and some who don’t) but no budget, ranges from the sublime to the idiotic. AN IRISH EXORCISM doesn’t break any ground – apart from perhaps being, as is claimed in the behind-the-scenes featurette, the only serious exorcism movie made so far in Ireland – but it’s a mostly good small-scale horror film. Writer Martin Robinson and …Read On »

Rating: Not Rated Stars: J. Michael Trautmann, Dana Melanie, Nick Herra, Clint James, Daniel Fredrick Writers: Alex Child, Miles Harrington & Michael Bartlett Director: Michael Bartlett Distributor: Uncork’d Entertainment Release Date: Blu-ray DVD, March 31, 2015 TREEHOUSE is one of those low-budget horror movies that starts off so slowly that it seems like it’s never going to pick up speed. Unfortunately, unlike some other genre entries that lull us in order to make the jolts that much more impactful, TREEHOUSE continues as it begins. It takes 25 minutes to get into the treehouse, where we wind up feeling more trapped …Read On »

VOD Review: HOOKED UP

HOOKED UP | © 2015 Uncork'd Entertainment

Rating: Not Rated Cast: Jonah Ehrenreich, Stephen Ohl, Julia Molins, Natascha Wiese Writer: Pablo Larcuen, Eduard Sola Director: Pablo Larcuen Distributor: Uncork’d Entertainment Release Date: April 7, 2015 HOOKED UP proudly embraces the fact that the entire movie was shot using an iPhone. While this probably is bragging rights in some circles, I’m not sure if you should be proud of the achievement. Do many people rent video-on-demand features with the intention of seeing craptacular video quality? And while found footage and retro-set films have used filters and special effects to introduce bad looking video quality, I’m pretty sure the …Read On »
