Besetment stars Abby Wathen (The Bay) as Amanda Millard, a young woman who takes a hotel position in a small town where she ends up fighting for her life…. Struggling and desperate for a job, Amanda takes a position at a hotel in a small town in Oregon. It’s a creepy, back country kind of town but owners Mildred Colvin and her son Billy seem nice enough at first. It’s not long before Amanda discovers their real intentions, and her struggle to make a living becomes a nightmarish fight for her life.
The tone of Besetment is set straight away during the films opening credits: creepy imagery of blood running down shower drains, fluids being injected into… something/someone, and stitches being removed, »

The Dark Tapes, 2017.
Directed by Vincent J. Gustini and Michael McQuown.
Science fiction and the supernatural interchange and interlock in a dark anthology of mystery, superstition, psychopaths, demons and horror.
I’ve probably said this before but I’m not a fan of the found footage horror sub-genre. Despite the occasional few good ones, such as Creep and The Bay (both of which I reviewed in my October Horror series last year) I find most of them to be incredibly dull and repetitive haunted house door slam fests.
However, the sub-genre that I do love in my horror films is when they go down the anthology route, allowing film-makers to tell a variety of different stories, perhaps using different styles and just generally allowing for a greater degree of creativity and variety.

When a rogue scientist discovers an immense egg in the dark recesses of a rainforest he thinks hes stumbled across his fame and fortune. But little does he know that it belongs to a terrifying hybrid monster, known only as the Piranhaconda (a moniker only mentioned once in the Entire film and dismissed as a stupid name!). Soon the beast is on the loose, hunting for its unborn child, rampaging through the country and destroying everything in its path in a mass of CGI-enhanced gory-glory.
A killer-creature B-movie from the Roger Corman staple, Piranhaconda is yet another made for Syfy TV movie suprisingly this one comes from director Jim Wynorski, who is well-known in the horror community for successfully mixing T&A and horror. »
