“MartialHorror” is a website dedicated to my two favorite film genre’s: Martial arts and horror.

If a movie simply has martial arts, or has it’s scary moments, I may also review them.

Yet I have also come to the realization that it’s just as important to understand those you don’t agree with, as hostile generalizations will only drive us further apart. I’ve even learned that the mental image of a shirtless Putin bending Trump over his Oval Office Desk is very contagious and this sentence may cause an epidemic. But on a more bittersweet note, 2016 taught me it was time to move on… From reviewing… I know, I know, this is obviously the most devastating news of 2016, but hear me out. I’ve been critiquing movies since 2007, with “Rush Hour 3” being my first (posted) review. I chose to adopt a video format for some of my works in 2009 and my original intention had been to lampoon bad movies- because that was a totally original concept that hadn’t been done by the entire internet…I eventually broadened my horizons with...
