FROZEN

FROZEN

| September 27, 2010

There’s a shared phenomenon common amongst all who’ve either strapped on a board or snapped into skis — and that’s the stalled chairlift. It could be that some doof fell trying to get on or off the lift, or some technical glitch. Whatever it was, if you’ve ever visited the ski slopes, you know the […]

Forget Me Not

Forget Me Not

| August 29, 2010

Not really sure why I picked this movie up. Probably the cool cover. Or maybe it was the only new horror tile released that week. What ever it was — Holy Calvin Klein!! I haven’t seen so may pretty faces on my screen since The Osmond Brothers made their umpteenth appearance on the Andy Williams […]

Burning Bright

This little flick was simply fun to watch. I’m a great big fan of the old 70s TV Movie of the Week, and Burning Bright reminded me a whole lot of those classic small screen gems. Girl in peril forced to make life altering decisions amidst horrific scenarios! Briana Evigan (last seen slicing through Sorority […]

Dead in the Water

There’s a scare ploy that has become all too common (but not as common as the leaping cat) in the modern horror flick, which is the prophetic whack job who (a) runs out of the woods shaking a severed eyeball, warning the kids in the car that they’re driving towards imminent bloody mayhem; (b) steps […]

My Skin

My Skin

| September 10, 2006

There’s a class of filmmakers that I mischievously refer to as “fanboys.” This is a group of movie lovers who simply love watching movies so much – usually cult favorites – that they wish to Zeus that they had made the damn things themselves. And sometimes they get their wish. When they get down to […]

Blood Bath

Blood Bath

There are some films that seem to exist–not by design, but rather by default–solely for the amusement of the purebred fan. The average movie-goer, in their right mind, would never sit through an hour and a half of amateurish acting, student-film photography, and sets so minimal that Samuel Beckett would be bored without either demanding […]

From the days of our country’s founding, and even long before in the old countries, there have been secret societies of men that yield furtive powers that our beyond our comprehension. Whether they bear ominous names like Skull and Bones or the Illuminati, or have less than threatening monikers like the Freemasons, the mere mention […]

CSI may think it’s the show that brought gore to the small screen. That’s because they didn’t see the opening scene of the made for TV movie House on Greenapple Road. With the backdrop of sweet melodic 70s muzak, little Eve Plumb (fresh in our minds and hearts as little Jan Brady) skips through pristine […]

The Beast Must Die

The Beast Must Die

| July 21, 2006

It’s matinee flicks like this that remind you just how much fun you could have at the movies before there was such a thing as CGI special FX. From the opening chase scene with a man pursued by a helicopter, a battalion of armed gunmen, booby traps and high-powered surveillance cameras to the bare fisted […]

When you talk about old school British horror films, most likely the conversation travels towards the legendary Hammer Studios. It’s natural. They were a very showy bunch. But they weren’t the only creeps in town who were churning out genre flicks like a busy witch brewing up spells. Amicus Studio was doing a fine job […]
