horror movie VooDoo
I tend to eye any movie about voodoo that has nary a person of color in it suspiciously. Has voodoo become gentrified now? Are white people conjuring Baron Samedi in between their twerking sessions and "This Is America" parody videos? Coming across the title VooDoo, I had two immediate thoughts....
Safari horror movie
Even for hardcore horror fans, found footage movies have pretty much worn out their welcome. Too often, they feel like an easy way for someone to make a film on the cheap without having to account for polished camerawork, effects, editing or dialogue. And too often, they show little...
The Final Project horror movie poster
Oh look, it’s another found footage horror movie! Along with glossy Hollywood remakes, jittery found footage films have been the whipping boys of horror fans for years -- justifiably so, given the dearth of originality in the countless Blair Witch Project and Paranormal Activity retreads over the past decade....
Bigfoot: The Lost Coast Tapes horror movie poster
Of the recent glut of “found footage” horror movies...Bigfoot: The Lost Coast Tapes is one of them. It’s far from the best example of this style, but it’s certainly not the worst. What it lacks in scares, it makes up for in sheer competence -- which frankly is more...
Da Hip Hop Witch movie

A Blair Witch Project spoof in the year 2006? Congratulations, you're seven years out of touch! The whole black and/or hip-hop angle was done years ago in The Black Witch Project and Da Hip-Hop Witch (although sadly, Bigfoot might be the best of the bunch) , so what's supposed...
The Bogus Witch Project movie
Ah, the year 2000. 'Twas a simpler time: pre-9/11, pre-dot-com bubble burst, pre-Dancing With the Stars. Back then, Britney Spears's vagina was still intact, Rosie O'Donnell was still the sexually ambiguous "Queen of Nice" and Blair Witch Project spoofs were still a viable form of artistic expression. Looking at...
Hanah's Gift horror movie poster
Hanah's Gift is an ambitious little film that pits a pair of age-old mortal enemies once more at each other's throat: angry black women and mute, autistic Hispanic girls. Yes, it's that tired formula AGAIN. Hanah (Alina Herrera) is an autistic six year old who doesn't speak and lives in...
