Did you know there existed a movie named Cthulhu released in 2008?

It’s amazing a movie called Cthulhu garnered such little attention. In all fairness, the cephalopod headed creature from Lovecraft’s imagination probably is his most renowned creature. So much so that it is even featured in the credit of the Rick & Morty cartoon. But if you were to ask most…

Ever heard of this French found footage shot in the snowy Alps?

Blurry shot of a woman screaming amongst a bunch of people.
Still from the movie

This French Fright wasn’t planned and yet it’ll definitely be a nice follow up to the last one, which was about Lost Bullet. There are at least five wild movies being made in France each year. What producers call a wild movie is a guerilla one, a full-length feature shot…

This a stupid piece, a light piece I wrote a while ago. Might fit the holiday spirit.

Let it be said that I don’t believe in coincidence.

I’m sure you have your own ideas about justice through the Dark Ages. Still, they may be false.

Street is crowded. It smells. Wherever you’d look, there be beggars. Stone walls, stalls made of wood, almost rotten food. Ground sticks on your feet every step you take. To your right, a child, he seems famished. You see his tiny hands rising from his green clothes, too large for…
