Review: Don’t Leave Home, lost souls

Michael Tully’s would-be art house haunter Don’t Leave Home explores the parallels of art imitating life in his slow-burning, moody eurohorror throwback. While artfully crafted and beautifully shot, Don’t Leave Home takes too long to drag itself out of boring genre fare and ultimately squanders what little potential its bizarre final act attempts. In this one, […]

Review: Summer of 84, the neighborhood slasher

Following in the footsteps of their debut film (RKSS’ post-apocalyptic face-melter Turbo Kid) is another nostalgia-fueled stab at the genre with Summer of 84, only this time they’re re-visiting the glory (and gory) days of the slasher genre.
