The Frozen (2012) – Stranded in a winter wonderland

September 22, 2013

First of all, do not get yourself confused with horror film Frozen that was released in 2010. The Frozen is a thriller directed by Andrew Hyatt and starring Brit Morgan, Noah Segan and Seth David Mitchell. One of my friends just got the DVD few days back and I was kind of zoomed it on […]

Abduction (2011) – Doesn’t thrill you much

Abduction (2011) – Doesn’t thrill you much

August 20, 2013

John Singleton directed action thriller Abduction is not the one that will keep you on edge till the last moment.

The Last Exorcism (2010)

July 7, 2013

This is yet another found-footage supernatural horror film I have watched in recent time, including that of Paranormal Activity and Grave Encounters.
