Synopsis: A cunning remake of George A. Romero’s black and white zombie classic Night of the Living Dead is a taut and terrifying return to the macabre scene of mayhem and dismemberment where the recently deceased begin rising from the grave as flesh-hungry zombies. Review: Tom Savini’s remake of George Romero’s Night of the Living […]
Reviews like this are tough, because a movie like Return of the Living Dead has been discussed-to-death on the internet for at least the last two decades. What can one possibly say that another hasn’t already? In addition to that, this is also the third Blu-ray release of the film I have seen. There was […]
When I was twelve years old, I was into baseball. I was pretty good, too. I could pitch, catch, infield, outfield and I could definitely bat. I was a switch hitter, which isn’t as sexual as it sounds. It simply means that I could successfully bat in both the right, and left-handed batting stances. Once, […]
I enjoyed the first Dead Snow film well enough, but it seemed like it gathered a ravenous fanbase, which I was not a part of. It was a competently made zombie film, but at the time, I had pretty much had it up to here with the genre. Plus, another couple of nazi “zombie” movies […]
Saturday marked the third day of Toronto After Dark 2014, and as is customary on the weekend, there were three separate screening blocks (as opposed to the standard two during the weekdays). Saturday at TADFF also usually means Zombie Appreciation Night, so you generally know that you are going to get at least two films featuring the […]

A ship docks fresh from Somalia which contains one infected worker that passes unnoticed into the very heart of India’s overpopulated bustling streets, setting off an unstoppable chain of events. Meanwhile, American turbine engineer Nicholas Burton (Joseph Millson, Casino Royale) is working in the stark yet tranquil Indian countryside when he receives a call from his love Ishani (Meenu), a local girl who lives on the outskirts of the slums of Mumbai and who has hidden their relationship from her tradition-minded father. She reveals she is now pregnant and scared for her life as chaos and terror have taken ahold of the cities as the dead return to life and attack the living. Nicholas has to battle his way across their 300 mile landscape filled with flesh-eating – and infectious – undead.

I’ve heard both good and bad things about Open Grave, but I am a fan of Sharlto Copley, so I plan to watch it anyway. I don’t know anything about it at all, I’ve never even watched a trailer, but the press release describes it as a “gritty zombie thriller”, so it could go either […]

If I were to sit here and list, the amount of plot elements Battle of the Damned has stolen from famous genre films, we would be here all day. Escape From NY, The Terminator, 28 Days Later, Maybe even Chopping Mall? This isn’t necessarily a complaint, more of an observation, maybe even a mild warning. […]
As is customary at TADFF, Saturday was Zombie Appreciation Night, which meant that the day’s programming consisted of two zombie-related films along with the International shorts program. Though I think zombies are by and large a bit played out, I still look forward to the night every year at the festival because they tend to […]

Day two of the 2013 edition of the Toronto After Dark Film Festival has now come and gone. Dubbed “Insect Night,” the night’s programming consisted of a pair of movies where the (arguably) main star was a bug. The idea of “theme nights” is one that has become more prevalent at the festival over the […]
The Battery (2012) Starring: Jeremy Gardner, Adam Cronheim Writer & Director: Jeremy Gardner Synopsis: Two former baseball players, Ben and Mickey, cut an aimless path across a desolate New England.

To get it out of the way, I’m am going to alert you to the fact that Day of the Dead is not only my favorite Romero film, but quite frankly, I think it’s the best zombie film that has ever been made. I often refer to it as the “Empire Strikes Back” of George […]
