20 Years Later

20 Years Later

| January 30, 2009

20 Years Later is one of those movies where I can’t shake the feeling like I walked into the middle of the film even though I clearly started at the beginning. The plot, which I’m having a terribly difficult time following, is about a woman who gets pregnant just after nuclear war turns America into […]

Cold Prey

Cold Prey

| January 20, 2009

I’m all sorts of impressed by this week’s offering, folks, and as such, it’s my sacred obligation to fill you in on it. It’s called Cold Prey, and it’s a beauty of a slasher film. Cold Prey represents part of a strange new development in the horror film market: namely, the entry of the Scandinavian […]

Kiss of the Vampire

Kiss of the Vampire

| January 14, 2009

I really, truly hate movies like this. By now it’s probably no secret that, with only a very few exceptions, I hate vampire movies. Why? Because most of them are the same thing, over and over again. Oh, sure, I’ll watch a new one when it comes out, on the off chance that it’s actually […]

The Alphabet Killer

The Alphabet Killer

| January 7, 2009

Let me preface this week’s remarks by saying that I never thought Rob Schmidt could do a creepy atmospheric thriller. And this week, in a rare twist, I’m actually glad to be disappointed. My disappointment this week comes in the form of The Alphabet Killer, yet another winner from the good folks at Anchor Bay. […]

Sundown: The Vampire In Retreat

Sundown: The Vampire In Retreat

| December 30, 2008

It’s not every day I get to use phrases like “forgotten art form” or “horror western”, so I have to eat a bit of crow here and thank Lions Gate, who often winds up as my whipping boy in pieces like this, for routing me a copy of Sundown: The Vampire In Retreat. It truly […]

Hack!

Hack!

| December 24, 2008

Hack is one of those strange movies that I have absolutely no idea what to say about it. But before I get into the commentary, let me introduce you to the plot and give you a better idea of why I’m so downright baffled by this thing. Basically, a biology major is leading a group […]

House of the Dead: Funny Version

House of the Dead: Funny Version

| December 17, 2008

Okay…it’s not every day that I actually cheer for a new Uwe Boll film. In fact, with the sort-of exception of Postal it’s never actually happened. I say sort-of, of course, because Postal can best be described as the best of a bad lot, but that’s neither here nor there. This is, however, a cause […]

Dance of the Dead

Dance of the Dead

| December 9, 2008

Okay, I admit freely that you’ve been just a little bit hoaxed, kids. I deliberately set this up so that I would cover this one, the last in the lineup of eight films that comprised the Ghost House Underground series, last. That’s right–from the beginning you’ve been hearing about the Ghost House Underground series in […]

The Last House in the Woods

The Last House in the Woods

| December 2, 2008

Well, folks… Just when you think Ghost House Underground can’t get any worse, along comes the Italian entry, The Venetian Chainsaw Massacre. Now, you just think I’m being funny at this point, but no, it’s true. Ghost House Underground was apparently so desperate for titles to round out its lineup that they were willing to […]

Dark Floors

Dark Floors

| November 18, 2008

You bastards. I’ve been trying valiantly to tone down the whole language bit, but frankly, there’s not a whole lot of equivalents for “bastard.” That and they can say it on network TV–watch an episode of South Park and see–so I’m feeling all right about it. Anyway, that aside, the reason I’m seething with rage […]
