Noroi: The Curse

Dir. Kôji Shiraishi

A found footage film horror film done right. It was even shot on video. Giving that nice low budget documentary feel to it. Don’t expect many scares going in though. Like many other J-horror films before it, Noroi is all about atmosphere and suspense. The film is a bit long, slow paced, and convoluted. But it all builds up into this great climax that is truly unsettling. There’s a wrap-up and then an ending that just really gets under your skin. So turn off the lights, raise the volume, and watch this film.

All My Life (After Baillie) (2016) by Clint Enns

Yes. Yes. Yes. Yes. Yes. Yes. Yes.

This was so good. Perfect. It can go right up next to Grave Encounters and Abduction at Lake County for my favorite found footage movies. Tension was built perfectly. This movie was pretty uniquely set up to show you lots of creepy sights and sounds and makeup. I felt genuine anxiety the further into the movie I got and the characters actually acted like human beings would react. Then when things started getting bad, they got real bad and real real terrifying. The ending fell a tiny bit flat but the journey was good enough that I didn’t care.

No Through Road

On December 17th 2008 four 17 year old boys were found dead in their car at an abandoned farm, 10 miles from their hometown. This video contains the unedited footage from the camera belonging to one of the boys, also found in the car.

If you have any information regarding the footage please contact us at the website given at the end of the video.

So I’m sick in bed with some sort of weird stomach thing (no, it’s not a hangover—- judgers!) and it seemed like the perfect time to watch Bobcat Goldthwait’s latest film Willow Creek.
It was excellent!
I’m not going to spoil anything (the trailer does that enough for us), but I recommend spending the $6.99 to rent it.
There’s another Bigfoot meuvie coming out at some point directed by one hit wonder (I did enjoy Lovely Molly though) Eduardo Sanchez—- if his meuvie is better than Willow Creek, I’ll eat my hair.
