Psycho Ward

Psycho Ward

| May 30, 2010

Ah, abandoned prisons. Clandestine party spot, raging kegger central, horror movie setting since time immemorial and of course, killing spree central. And that’s the central theme behind today’s horror movie spectacular, Psycho Ward. Psycho Ward features a group of young people off to do a documentary about an abandoned prison, and some of the stuff […]

When a movie can start off with a line like “There’s a razor thin line between sanity and insanity, sometimes you don’t even know you’ve crossed it”, it’s a fair bet that something big is going to happen. And chances are, it’s not going to be pretty. But whether or not it’ll be entertaining remains […]

House of the Devil

House of the Devil

| May 30, 2010

Ti West, if you haven’t been keeping track of him lately, has had sort of a strange sort of infatuation with retro fare. After seeing “The Roost”, I had an idea how he was looking to handle his movies. Turns out House of the Devil was going to be another example of retro fare. House […]

Home Movie

There is nothing, ladies and gentlemen, quite so scary as the concept of children gone bad. Children, you see, awaken certain instincts in us. In most of the population, these are instincts of protection, instincts that in most cases requires us to defend the children in question. The thought that we may have to defend […]

The Hills Run Red

The Hills Run Red

| March 4, 2010

Considering that the first five minutes of The Hills Run Red open up with some truly horrendous self-mutilation, I can see where you would think this would be pretty shocking. And giving me further hope for the movie is the surprise revelation that this is a Dark Castle film. Dark Castle has given me LOADS […]

Sometimes that which you see is only the beginning. And sometimes it takes a team of heavily armed sociopaths holding you hostage in a grocery store to see the world for what it really is. That’s the basic concept of Alien Raiders, our review target this go-round. And it’s a downright doozy too, kids. In […]

Dead Air

Dead Air

| March 4, 2010

First off, for those of you expecting a zombie movie, you will be somewhat disappointed, but only somewhat. See, Dead Air isn’t really a zombie movie so much as it is one of those 28 Days Later-esque “rage virus” movies. And this is directly related to the plot–in Dead Air, a handful of what I’m […]

Do you have any idea how rare good science fiction is? Conversely, do you have any idea how even more rare good direct to video science fiction is? And by the time I bring in “imported” to “good direct to video science fiction”, well, I’ve just blown the scale of possibility wide open to the […]

Well, folks, if you’ve been hungering for a monster movie–and these days, monster movies are pretty much the exclusive province of the steadily more horrible SyFy Channel (I still personally resent typing that title. It literally hurts to type it.)–then you might be happy to see Razorteeth, a monster movie quite a bit unlike many […]

The Witches Hammer

The Witches Hammer

| January 19, 2010

The return of the British vampire movie! Or so says the box breathlessly. I confess that British cinema can be downright entertaining–I’ve seen enough BBC America to have at least some understanding on that point, So I confess further that I was definitely interested in The Witches Hammer when I got a copy from MTI.
