Friday’s Feature: Facing Fear – The Unseen Is Always Scarier

Welcome to the last feature in October and the last horror focused feature for awhile. If you missed the previous posts I've looked at visuals, the victims, and how characters can make the audience feel the fear, and today I am looking at whether the seen or the unseen is scarier. Now every horror fan … Continue reading Friday’s Feature: Facing Fear – The Unseen Is Always Scarier


Sword Oratoria Episode 3

Review: Spin-off by their very nature are always going to be compared to the original and cross overs between events in the original series and the spin-off are more or less inevitable. However, Sword Oratoria seems devoted to walking us through the events that Bell experienced, only without Bell actually being present but for the … Continue reading Sword Oratoria Episode 3

Attack on Titan Series Review

Overview: Eren Yeager has grown up in a city surrounded by walls. Three in fact and they are the only things keeping the titans (really large humanoid monsters) from eradicating what is left of humankind. However, Eren wants out of the city. Then, a titan breaches the gate and Eren's world comes crumbling down. Training … Continue reading Attack on Titan Series Review

Bloodivores Episode 12

Review: How many synonyms are there for saying something is bad? There we go, episode 12 of Bloodivores reviewed in all its shining glory. Not only is this series without any resolution, the one reveal of any note this episode was something we'd all kind of figured out (or at least suspe cted) since episode … Continue reading Bloodivores Episode 12

Bloodivores Episode 10

Review: Does anyone else have a problem with Mi Liu essentially feeding Lee Shin to a monster just because Lee Shin's awakening power is an inconvenience to Mi Liu's most recent half-thought-out 'plan'? Or was that just me? As an episode, Bloodivores this week was not great (not that it has ever really been great). … Continue reading Bloodivores Episode 10

The Cabin in the Woods Movie Review

My very first movie review (yes, even I take a break from anime occasionally). Overview: Five friends go to a remote cabin in the woods. Then things go strange. And really, that's all you can say about this without giving anything away. The review below is completely full of major plot points so please feel … Continue reading The Cabin in the Woods Movie Review

Bloodivores Episode 5

Review: How do you even start with this? Why is the scar on Mi Liu's arm on his inner arm when his father clearly grabbed him the other way? And in case we forgot that minor detail from episode 1, let's have a flashback sequence to make it clear that the scar and the 'Sapphire' … Continue reading Bloodivores Episode 5

Bloodivores Episodes 4

Review: At least someone is asking what happened to all these missing Bloodivores. It doesn't look like he's actually going to find an answer any time soon (and I'm pretty sure that they are setting him up to get in over his head and then killed) but at least someone is asking. That said, our … Continue reading Bloodivores Episodes 4

Cute High Earth Defense Club Love Episode 4

Review: And I'm done here as well. I really didn't think this show had a second season in it and when the giant ball of hair monster caused the building to sprout hair I knew it was over. The thing is, Cute High was a parody of magical girls but once you've got the joke … Continue reading Cute High Earth Defense Club Love Episode 4

The Lost Village Episode 9

Review: Forget subtle or slow building of tension. The Lost Village his the accelerator last week and just kept going. Characters run around confronting each other and their various monsters and once again nothing is explained. Turns out Hayato is even crazier than I gave him credit for after the mob scene and it isn't … Continue reading The Lost Village Episode 9
