Film Review: Don't Grow Up SYNOPSIS:: The story about a group of youths who can't face the thought of growing up because anyone who does becomes a rampaging zombie.

The Master Cleanse - HNN - Horrornews.net SYNOPSIS: The Master Cleanse centers on a heartbroken man who attends a spiritual retreat, only to d.

Film Review: Amicus Mortis A twisted and bloody tale of revenge shown in reverse chronological order. Low budget horror shorts are hard to do well.
