ALONE
4 Stars
Year Released: 2006
MPAA Rating: Unrated
Running Time: 20 minutes

While many feature length films have difficulty sustaining suspense and mystery throughout their running time, a short seems like a perfect home for a claustrophobic, compact horror movie and it works perfectly in “Alone…”

NECRONOMICON: POST MORTEM

BEST OF 2005! If nothing else, the Necrocomicon can probably have the distinct honor of being the most surreal horror convention ever to hit the West Coast. I have a feeling after this weekend of horrors, many of us are debating whether or not that was a good thing…

Year Released: 2004
MPAA Rating: R
Running Time: 81 minutes

HELLBENT

4 Stars
Year Released: 2004
MPAA Rating: Unrated
Running Time: 85 minutes

SCREENING AT AFM NOVEMBER 3 & 4! In retrospect, it seems odd that it’s taken until now to have a gay-themed slasher film. Fortunately, “Hellbent” is a refreshingly straight-up genre flick with lots of blood and a few nice scares along the way…
