The scariest nightmare are the ones you can wake up to in “We Are The Missing”; a drama/horror pseudo-documentary following The Madisons’ desperate search for their missing daughter.

Starring: Maissa Houri, Mark Templin, and Willow Mcgregor

Directed and written by: Andrew J.D. Robinson

   There’s shows like Dateline, and 20/20 that have been covering all kinds of murders, crimes, and disappearances for years now. Those kind of crime related programs have picked up recently with shows all over cable tv. Hell there’s even tons of true crime podcasts now with some actually helping solve the crimes. So why not have a little fun with that kind of production, and make a horror movie out of it? Well, that’s exactly what “We Are The Missing” has done!
  It starts off very seriously with Angie Madison (Maissa Houri) and John Madison (Mark Templin) talking about the disappearance of their daughter Riley. Each of them in their own locations, it goes back and forth with them telling a little about their daughter, and what was happening around the time of her disappearance. They’re very serious to start, and the audience might immediately fell sorry for them. Then there’s the mention of Riley’s imaginary, which changes the tone of things. 
  Along with the imaginary friend, there’s also the introduction of a real friend, Mackenzie. They were best friends who had an interest in horror movies. The documentary also talks a little with her, and how she’s trying to help find Riley through Facebook, and later getting involved in a local legend like Big Foot. Early on, it seems the film as a good formula of pretending to be a serious documentary, and then brings up something almost ridiculous to explain things.
  Then the film decides to take a dive, and turn this into one very strange documentary. From what originally was the disappearance of Riley, is now the disappearance of Riley and her parents. This leaves the documentary talking to her sister Paige, who didn’t want to be involved. It only gets worse as Mackenzie goes missing as well, shifting the documentary to follow her sister April. It’s not over there because the documentary soon moves from strange to truly bizarre. The people behind the documentary got more than they bargained for, but hang in there to try and put all the pieces together.
  Documentary or mockumentary, “We Are The Missing” will definitely have the audience going back and forth. Early on it definitely seems like the average as seen on tv missing persons story, but then reveals a formula of realness and almost ridiculousness. It plays on disappearances involving social media, local legends, and more. Then with no fear it pushes the boundaries with multiple disappearances, and bizarre reasoning behind it all. It may seem a little long at points and a bite complicated, but the pieces of the puzzle are all there in the end. It seems like a great timing for a film like this to come along and have a little fun with all these crime shows. They definitely took a risk here, but I think it pays off for them so I give it 3 pools of blood and hope not to disappear!

Horror Movie Survival Kit

Man Crates is a new company that ships awesome gifts for men in custom wooden crates that he has to open with a crowbar! At Man Crates, it is their mission to end the difficulties that have long been associated with buying gifts for men.  And what does Man Crates have to do with horror? Well, while they have a wide assortment of crates, they also have horror themed ones like their "Zombie Survival Crate." Someone at Man Crates asked me to create my own Horror Movie Survival Kit as part of their Halloween celebration so here we go! Us horror fans know that is usually takes a lot to survive a horror film. A lot of it comes from the person's will to live, and a little luck. Obviously those things don't come in a crate, so lets start by thinking about the kind of horror movies we could end up in. We have zombies, vampires, werewolves, ghosts, aliens, end of the world scenarios, and even sharknados! Even with a crate I'm not sure we could be totally prep

Starring: Lisette Alexis, John James Cronin, Pat Healy, Vinessa Shaw and Sierra McCormick Directed by: Sean King O’Grady Written by: Max Booth III A Popcorn Frights Film Festival Review   How many horror movies come to that part when a character says, “We Need To Do Something?” A big storm has hit, and forced a family to hunker down in one of their bathrooms for safety. Parents Diane (Vinessa Shaw) and Robert (Pat Healy) figured that was the best place to be with their teen daughter Melissa (Sierra McCormick), and young son Bobby (John James Cronin). In a way it turns out to be a good decision because a tree comes down onto the house destroying part of it. The family is safe except for one thing.   The tree has blocked the bathroom door, and left them stranded
