Frightgown Review: Christopher Bickel’s ‘Bad Girls’

Christopher Bickel’s “Bad Girls” is a blood-soaked, modern exploitation feature with three badass female leads in the vein of “Coffy” or “Death Proof” and an over-the-top style reminiscent of Troma’s productions or a less futuristic “Hobo With A Shotgun” that really brings the whole thing to life! The editing is extremely impressive for a budget film, with multiple camera angles […]

CFF Review: Robert Woods’ ‘An Ideal Host’

A very inventive and well-crafted debut from director Robert Woods, who has done some effects work on films prior to this, but decided to “go out to a farmhouse with some friends and see what we could put together” as he worded it in the intro.
