    I rewatched this film this morning after spotting it on the 'featured' page on Shudder. I had a relatively fond recollection of it, but I couldn't remember details. For some reason, like many folks, I think that I mentally placed it under that general umbrella of 'found footage'/'immersive horror' and filed it away as part of a general mainstream trend at the time; however, it's not that at all. "Mockumentary" doesn't really set well with me either, since there's a…

    This review may contain spoilers. I can handle the truth.

    I watched “Unearth” due to the nostalgia factor of Adrienne Barbeau and Marc Blucas, and I had the sense that it was eco-horror from the description since the focus is fracking and farmland, etc. I didn’t expect to be 45 minutes in and still wondering if I had stumbled into some kind of odd farmer-drama soap opera. The characters are simply unlikeable. I hate to make a blanket statement like that given the quality of most of the acting—it’s good…

    Note: I didn't finish it because I lost interest. The two stars here are for a certain gritty visual appeal and all of the (latent? intentional?--it was supposed to be a "black comedy," right?) homoeroticism between the two protagonists that made me laugh a couple of times before I moved on.

    "Winchester" had a budget of $3.5 million and made almost $39 million at the box office. There are low-budget films in my 'viewed' list that are ten times more interesting. Heck, I've watched episodes of "Supernatural" that were better written. It's a particular point of irritation to me when movies that are based on stories with so much available background info, that are beautifully shot, and that are populated with excellent actors are so terrible due to lack of creativity…

    For a while there, I thought the other reviewers of this watched another film. The first part of "Black Mountain Side" is pret-ty rough: halted lines, awkward interactions, etc. The pacing is slow, which is fine with me, but the shots linger too long at times (well beyond what's necessary)...and that combined with the awkwardness of interactions makes it feel more like an attempt at mumblecore than a Horror movie. It does get a bit better as it moves along…
