Contracted the Movie
Eric England


Samantha kills Nikki, her apathetic girlfriend, by choking her to death after Nikki finds out Samantha hooked up with a man at a party and Nikki confesses she's been cheating on Samantha, then bludgeons her friend Alice to death after going to her house and telling her she has nobody left but Alice (she gives Alice a bloody, gross out kiss and then kills her).  Samantha then cleans herself up (as best she can), calls Riley to come over, and has rotting, maggot-y sex with Riley and then transforms into a full on zombie as she's driving home to her mom.  She gets out of the car, takes a swipe at someone trying to help, and then, when her mom calls for Samantha to come to her, Samantha lunges at her and the screen goes black.


What a magic little gem this is and one which will make you think twice about having a one night stand! My only complaint about this one is that it didn’t run long enough and ended too abruptly. I wanted more. This movie runs along a similar vein as Thanatomorphose where a young girl becomes infected with a virus and her body begins to fall apart. 
Though nowhere near as graphic as Thanatomorphose, there are enough differences between both movies to make them unique. This story is about Samantha who is a lesbian and after breaking up with her girlfriend attends a party where she is drugged and raped by a man she doesn’t know. The story progresses over a three day period where Samantha’s condition worsens by the hour as she experiences her flesh rotting, vaginal maggots, an abnormal menstrual cycle which becomes a river of blood, fingernails, hair and teeth falling out and the progressive loss of her eyesight. 
She very quickly regrets her one night stand as her life unfolds over the three days into a living hell. As the disease consumes her, she becomes a murderous soul killing her best friend and taking bites out of other people’s necks. Her crumbling body sends her insane and the final result is when she’s killed in a car crash and is reborn as a zombie. The zombie part only lasts for about one minute, the rest of the movie is about how she came to end up in this state. 
I know some people have canned this movie but I have to say I really enjoyed it. It was very well made with high quality special effects and the acting was brilliant especially by Najarra Townsend who played the part of Samantha. I found it to be a bit different and very entertaining. I invite you to leave your comments below and let me know what you think.




Kairo (Pulse) review

Kairo (Pulse)


It’s safe to say that we’ve created our share of iconic horror characters here in America. Horror icons like Freddy Krueger (A Nightmare on Elm Street), Michael Myers (Halloween), or Jason Vorhees (Friday the 13th) are so highly recognizable, that they’re pretty much synonymous with the mere concept of a horror movie. Even so, no country handles horror quite like Japan does. Japanese horror films have a much-deserved reputation for being exceptionally horrifying and thought-provoking at the same time. You won’t find as many homicidal maniacs gracing genre screens in... Read More

The Black Room Review

The Black Room


When it comes to classic horror tropes – like haunted houses and the dark secrets they hide – there’s definitely more than one way to approach material that is very familiar to the average genre fan by now. More and more modern filmmakers are adopting a cerebral approach and turning their haunted house movies into social commentaries with something larger to say. Others are focused on simply telling a good scary story with plenty of jump scares and special effects. Still more go for an exploitive approach that is almost intentionally trashy. The Black Room could probably... Read More

The Shrine Review

The Shrine


The Shrine is the type of film that comes complete with lots of familiar horror tropes an avid genre lover will recognize. You’ve got the mysterious disappearance of a traveler under mysterious circumstances, as well as a team of people seeking answers as to the details of those circumstances. You’ve got a remote village in a foreign land populated by strange people who raise an eyebrow or two thanks to their mysterious beliefs and practices. Scares, jumps, and mysteries abound as the protagonists attempt to make sense of it all. Given those facts, the plotline of The... Read More



Jack Crow is much more than a vampire hunter. He is a war machine that considers vampires as the embodiment of Evil and teammates as soldiers to be strictly trained so that they never fail. The Vatican monitors him from afar, assists him through specially trained priests, and supports him economically. This unlikely but functional partnership between this sort of crepuscular cow boy and one of the most important religious institutions in the world undergoes a stop when the ancient and powerful Valek breaks into the room where a vampire hunting party is celebrating, making...

The Curse of La Llorona Review

The Curse of La Llorona


If you’re a fan of the ever-expanding universe of The Conjuring, then it makes sense that The Curse of La Llorona would definitely be on your radar. It is the sixth addition to the franchise, joining other recent hits like The Nun and Annabelle in fleshing out the world first introduced by the original Conjuring back in 2013. It’s also the directorial debut of Michael Chaves (who will also be directing the upcoming Conjuring 3) and is, of course, produced by James Wan. Linda Cardellini (Strangeland), Raymond Cruz (From Dusk Till Dawn 2), Sean Patrick Thomas (Kemper, The... Read More
