Film Review: SHOWER SHARKS (2018) (Short Film)


SHOWER SHARKS *** U.S.A 2018 Dir: Noah "Shark" Robertson 10 mins

Is nowhere safe from sharks any more? JAWS made us afraid to go to the beaches, and since then there have been films that saw this terrifying beast of the sea come up close and personal with humans. Bill Zebub attacked our genitalia in DICKSHARK (2016), Ron Bonk has HOUSE SHARK (2017) and even Mark Polonia terrified the land with LAND SHARK (2017).

Film Review: MOM AND DAD (2017)


MOM AND DAD **** USA 2017 Dir: Brian Taylor. 86 mins

Here’s what you get when one half of the filmmaking duo behind the CRANK movies unleashes an inversion of the concept behind THE CHILDREN: here, an epidemic of ambiguous origin causes parents across America to literally want to kill their own kids. It’s a feature-length extension of all those fleeting, loss of control parental moments in which an empty but rage-infused “I’m gonna kill you” is threatened, and its subversive tone is set by a suitably disarming title sequence suggesting some forgotten 1970’s American sitcom-from-Hell.
