"FAMILIAR is a legitimate genre masterpiece" - Review of Fatal Pictures' horror movie.


"Every bit as brilliant as he was in Worm, Nolan once again brings a frustrated, pathetic but very dangerous character to life. Like Worm, the bulk of the lines come from Dodd’s internal monologue, delivered with finesse by Nolan....

...Completely shocking body horror and some brilliant visual effects occur later on as the short builds to a truly twisted and unforgettable climax. This is an excellent and well-crafted tale. Credit must also go to Powell for his assured direction. I thought his work in Worm was great, I’m prepared to say I thought it was even better in Familiar. That is strong praise indeed."

Great new review of WORM just in! - "...another gem in the ranks of genre shorts."

WORM

"Wow. I'd heard some great things about Worm but I was still shocked by just how amazing it was. Anchored by a brilliant performance by Robert Nolan (one that assured I will eagerly look forward to more of his work) and fantastically shot and crafted by writer/director Richard Powell, Worm is a must-see. As much a fascinating character-drama as a horror story, this is yet another gem in the ranks of genre shorts." 
Watch for HEIR - The Final Short From Fatal Pictures now in post-production!

Great new review of MOURNING HAS BROKEN by Unsung Films


"Mourning Has Broken" starts to settle as it reaches its end. It becomes more reflective, gentler, harder. It slowly unwinds until we reach the starting point again. And by the end, it is exceedingly difficult to remain unmoved by the profound and devastating plight of a broken man at the quiet breaking point of despair." 

MOURNING HAS BROKEN will be released on Feb. 3, 2015

Just out! A great new review of Fatal Pictures horror film WORM by Legless Corpse

 WORM - A fine new review:

"I honestly didn’t know what to expect when I first saw this little film, but was very happy that I had the opportunity when it was over. I’ve watched it many times since then, and find it just as chilling on subsequent viewings...

This little twenty-minute flick did a lot to push me out of my comfort zone; by taking something all of us can relate to, a figure that in a perfect world should be a bastion of trust and inspiration, and turning it into the blackest of fears, writer/director Richard Powell crafted a tale that was both unsettling and captivating. His use of the camera, close in on Dodd when we’re most uncomfortable with what we’re hearing, almost creates the illusion that we’re his conscience on his shoulder; the voice he can’t hear."

Two great new Reviews of horror film SILENT RETREAT just released in North America on Sep. 2, 2014

"Director Tricia Lee Kalpakis makes her feature film debut with SILENT RETREAT and shows a high degree of talent in transitioning genres.... Characters as portrayed by Chelsea Jenish, Sofia Rosenkranz and Robert Nolan are perfectly cast as they lend their combined talents to a tale that all three seem committed to pulling together." - (Review by KillerReviews.com

"SILENT RETREAT proves that sometimes the monster to be feared is the human one... Robert Nolan is absolutely chilling as the Doctor. His presence is felt throughout the film as the hard driving disciplinarian villain. He uses a combination of hypnosis and mind control techniques to force the women to go all Stepford Wives at this rehab. And, truly, he is the REAL monster of the story... It’s a movie filled with all the things we horror fans love. Monsters, evil men, pretty girls, creepy woods and the cabins in them! I highly recommend “Silent Retreat” to all of you." - (Review by Horror Cabin)

SILENT RETREAT was released in North America (US and Canada on September 2nd. Widely available on a variety of platforms including:
