Review: THE VOURDALAK is a Beautiful and Horrifying Vampire Tale
Daily Dead
by Emily von Seele
12h ago
Adrien Beau’s feature debut The Vourdalak is a horror film that brings a unique vibe to the table. A French, period-set vampire tale that utilizes some unique effects work to bring the titular fiend to life. The Serbian folk monster the Vourdalak is not exactly the same thing as a vampire, but they’re close cousins.

Archie’s House of Horror: TRUTH OR DARE
Daily Dead

When it comes to the golden age of horror films—hell, the golden age of films in general, I will die on the hill arguing that it is the late 1990s into the early 2000s. Sure, you might have incredibly valid reasons to argue against that, but this was a time of peak cinema when it comes to my personal media consumption. I consider it a source of pride that my strongest trivia category, were I to encounter it, would easily be Teen Movies of the late ‘90s into the early ‘00s. You see, I was at the perfect age for those movies to make an impact—a nerdy preteen with no siblings who was often glued ..read more

Review: DELICATE ARCH is an Interesting Film that Plays with Reality Itself
Daily Dead
by Emily von Seele
2d ago
In some stories, the world is exactly as it seems. The rules, physics and details are all adhered to and the story evolves under a set of standard expectations. In others, what we think we know turns out to be false and the rules of the world are turned upside down in the name of examining just what makes perception reality. Matthew Warren‘s Delicate Arch is a story that challenges the nature of reality itself. It’s a story of boundaries and liminal spaces. Of finding yourself in the in-between. It’s a fun film that keeps the viewer and the characters guessing, while cleverly upending the rul ..read more
