    FILM REVIEWS

    • After having watched hundreds of horror movies over the years, my initial assumption of this movie was proved wrong. I completely fell in love with Alex, played by Michelle Argyris.

      Erin Griffith – ‘Devil Seed’ Review
    • As far as demon possession films go, director Greg A. Sager does a really, really nice job retelling this classic story of devil finds girl, devil loses girl, devil finds new girl to plant his demon spawn into. The film is a combination of "The Exorcist" meets "Rosemary's Baby"; however, it's definitely not in their class of motion picture. But Greg A. Sager (remember this name) does a truly commendable job with a very limited budget, and this no-name cast.

      THE FARIS REEL – ‘Devil Seed’ Review
    • Very well made...People tend to forget not every movie has to be a masterpiece to be enjoyed, especially in the horror genre. I wasn't looking for an Oscar worthy movie, I simply went looking for a creepy and entertaining horror movie and I found it.

      Gomez Addams – ‘Kingdom Come’ Review
    • A creepy, scary atmosphere gives the viewer shivers, with plenty of twist and turns to glue the viewer to their seat...t is a clever little movie and they make the most of the special effects, CrypticRock gives Kingdom Come 4 out of 5 stars.
