Review: Killer Therapy

Review by Paul Grammatico


There are times when a family can be severely fractured because of one bad apple in the family. An apple, while it is young, can have some internal development issues coupled with bruising from outside forces. When said apple turns rotten, it enters into the barrel that surrounds it and infects the other apples, thus the phrase, “one bad apple can spoil the barrel”. This may be true, but when you look harder, it can be an inversion of the proverb where the bad apples in the barrel can spoil the apple that it surrounds. Nothing could be closer to this than Killer Therapy, a film produced by Rellik and distributed by 4Digital Media where a child’s development grows out of control as nurture triumphs over nature.

Review: A Night of Horror – Nightmare Radio

Review by Paul Grammatico


When I was a small child, I was surrounded by much older adolescents when my family resided at a summer cottage in the woods in Northern Michigan.

These stories shaped my childhood and made me a maven of the unusual and unexplained with terror being a byproduct which entered my cerebral cortex. Black Mandala and Uncork’d Entertainment’s newest horror anthology A Night of Horror: Nightmare Radio brings those tales to the terrestrial airwaves.
