Impressions: The Descent

Over the years I have raved about this movie, so I thought I might finally take the time to do an impressions piece on it. A bit of background, The Descent is a UK movie that came out in 2005. One year after the lead character, Sarah, loses her husband and daughter in a car…

Favorite Zombie Movies

In honor of the month of spooky, I thought I would write something about one of my favorite sub-genres of horror, the zombie. Now zombies have gone through a number of changes in recent years. Thanks to the late great Mr. Romero there was a drastic shift from the zombies of ancient lore to diseased,…

Impressions: Cult of Chucky

The first thing I want to say is to the fans of the Child’s Play/Chucky franchise, I tried. I truly did. The second would also be a bit of a warning; I have not seen most of this series. I genuinely enjoyed the first movie and thought the second was silly fun. Since then I…

Impressions: Knee Deep

While a little late to the party I recently got a chance to play Knee Deep. Knee Deep falls into that category of game I enjoy so much, a story driven narrative where your gameplay is based mostly on choices. To add something a bit unique to this game it’s set up as though it’s…

Impressions: The Bunker

The Bunker is an indie horror game from Splendy Games. It is FMV (full motion video) which is what first peaked my interest in the game. Coming from a mostly PC games background in my young years I played plenty of games that featured at the very least FMV for cut scenes. Of course, a…
