Horror movies Review
“Shocking” -Dread Central
“Disturbing” -SF Bay Guardian
“Powerful… a new genre: Acid Horror!” -Variety
POP SKULL depicts the lonely and disjointed life of Daniel, a young Alabama pill addict, as his efforts to cope with the trials of his day-to-day life collide with the increasing influence of murderous and displaced spirits that inhabit his home.
Plagued by ghosts, Daniel discovers his home holds a secret to a grisly crime… a crime he’s doomed to repeat if he can’t prevail against the forces that haunt him.
“Superb… smart… Pop Skull is a multimedia assault on your senses… there is a strobe warning at the top of the film that is to be taken very seriously. Sometimes shredding, sometimes simmering… get ready for the chill to run up your spine, but don’t be afraid to see this film.” -LA Splash
“Unlike any horror film you’ve ever seen—or ever will see, POP SKULL is a must-see.” -Stephen Susco, writer of THE GRUDGE
