That said, I would argue this is the best un-hyped horror film from 2014 that I just watched, truly. Meaning: until I saw a glowing recommendation for it […]

I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again — Rusty Nails is the hardest working man in horrorbusiness.  He’s left his mark all over the Chicago horror scene with his relentless, multi-annual movie festivals and marathons.  He’s put a lot of blood, sweat, and even more blood into these events, and it shows. I’m […]
