Legend of the Bog

Legend of the Bog

| November 18, 2009

Legend of the Bog is one of those strange sort of movies that’s really rather tough to talk about. As you can see above, it’s a clear two star but mostly because on the whole it’s rather unspectacular. Basically, the plot deals with things called “bog bodies”, which are a kind of two thousand year […]

The Last Resort

The Last Resort

| November 18, 2009

I saw the trailers for The Last Resort and I confess that I didn’t feel any too good about its chances going in. It looked downright cheesy, purely low budget. And though I did get cheesy low budget out of this one, I also got some half-decent shocks out of it and a few good […]

For those of you not already in the know, a little background before we kick off this round of coverage–Frank Peretti is one of a very, VERY few novelists in a field called “Christian horror”. You wouldn’t think that such a thing would exist, but it’s possible and Peretti’s living proof. All you have to […]

I had to admit, I was pretty scared when I cracked this one from Lions Gate open–frankly, just hearing the words “H.P. Lovecraft movie” are enough to make my blood run cold any more. There have only been a precious few of these that can actually be considered good, and each new one that comes […]

Cravings

Cravings

| October 6, 2009

It’s nice to see a vampire movie that doesn’t involve sparkles, because as we are well aware that sort of thing has been going around a lot lately. And with Cravings, a new vampire movie from Lions Gate, we will manage to do better than sparkles, but not by much. Seen anything in the movies […]

Dead Wood

Dead Wood

| August 27, 2009

I had my doubts about this one going in. I’ve always been leery of movies that require more than one director and more than two writers. But this one was looking to prove me wrong from the start. When four friends, including one couple and another duo whom the couple hopes will BECOME a couple, […]

Frayed

Frayed

| August 27, 2009

I’ll admit at the outset, when I saw the downright frightening box art–any time you involve clowns in a horror movie you’ve got at least some reason for optimism–that I was interested in catching Frayed. But then, when I saw that the movie had no less than FIVE writers, and two of them were also […]

Okay, this is the part where I start sweating bullets. I’m not a hundred percent sure I’ve found the dog of the After Dark Horrorfest yet, and if it’s going to happen anywhere, it’s probably going to happen here. This is the one no one saw coming, the third iteration of a movie that was […]

From Within

| July 3, 2009

So we’re coming into the home stretch for this year’s After Dark Horrorfest, and so far, I’ve been unsettlingly right. So far, the After Dark Horrorfest has produced mostly good movies, with only a couple that could merely be called mediocre. The fact that I’ve been this right so far suggests that I’m likely to […]
