KAL The Clown (2016) Short Film Review

Clowns are something that a bunch of people I know personally are afraid of, although they have never really bothered me. Dolls and puppets are other things that tend creep a lot of people out. This I can relate to, as the Child’s Play franchise terrified me as a kid …

Betsy (2017): An Upcoming Werewolf Film to Sink Your Teeth Into

The first film I reviewed for PopHorror.com was Shawn Burkett’s Don’t Fuck In The Woods (2016).

Loss can make us do crazy things. Think about the people you love and what your life would be like if they passed away. You would probably be a mess. I know I would. Now imagine you could bring your loved ones back from the dead. Would you do it? What …

Frankenstein Created Bikers (2016) Movie Review

Dear God No! (2011) is a nasty piece of exploitation cinema that from it’s opening scene to the end credits, left me nauseated. From the aftermath of the rape and murder of a group of nuns to a pregnant woman being raped, stabbed repeatedly, gutted, and her unborn child torn …
