I was recently sent a review copy of Anglerfish — a 2022 indie horror game by Professional Villains — and I played it all the way through! John and Maria, Anglerfish‘s creators, were very clear that they would appreciate honest feedback, good or bad (how refreshing!!) because they’re constantly striving to get better at their craft. With so many video game-related disappointments in recent years (who else pre-ordered Cyberpunk 2077 and Pokémon Scarlet? Oof!), did Professional Villains’ Anglerfish add to the pile of “Wow… They really shouldn’t have released this yet” or did it rise above and st ..read more

Death Count is an upcoming 2022 horror movie attempting to put a modern spin on the oftentimes formulaic torture subgenre. The film was directed and shot by Michael Su (Bloodthirst, Night of the Tommy Knockers) and features veteran actors like Michael Madsen (Reservoir Dogs), Costas Mandylor (Saw franchise), and Sarah French (Pretty Boy).  The first time I sat through the trailer, I was intrigued! It promises over-the-top special effects, a grim commentary on the impact of social media on the world, and a harrowing look at eight people who are in a whole lot of trouble.  Not having a ..read more
