Well folks, there’s good news and bad news regarding Angry Nazi Zombies. First, the good news: Angry Nazi Zombies is not actually a full-length feature about angry Nazi zombies. It is actually an anthology of short micro budget horror films all set during World War II and shot in the UK, and originally released there […]

It’s no surprise that given the popularity of the zombie film sub genre, the list of film books on zombie movies is becoming fairly crowded since the turn of the century. Peter Dendle’s The Zombie Movie Encyclopedia was published in 2001, followed in 2005 when FAB Press published Jamie Russell’s Book of the Dead: The […]

Surpassed in iconicity only by his title role in 1925’s The Phantom of the Opera, Lon Chaney’s performance as Quasimodo in The Hunchback of Notre Dame (1923) was a defining moment in the actor’s prolific, but all-too-short filmic career. Renowned for his ability to transform himself entirely through the use of makeup and by altering […]

Scarecrow

Scarecrow

| February 24, 2014 | 0 Comments

There’s a fine line between science fiction and horror, and Scarecrow falls squarely in the horror column, which would be fine except this is a production of the Syfy channel. I don’t understand how Sci-fi and horror have become the same in some people’s eyes.  There are definitely a lot of crossovers between the genres […]

Robert Louis Stevenson’s classic novella Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde, originally published in 1886, is as potent an allegory today as it ever was, asking us to consider the ever-present base, immoral, and animalistic urges that within all of us. We all have the capacity to perform horrible, unspeakable deeds. Whether we do these things […]

I like to think I can sit through pretty much anything.  There have been 2 movies in my life that I remember being so painful that I had to stop watching after about 15 minutes:  Repo: The Genetic Opera, and the 1970s made or TV remake of Double Indemnity.  I’m not saying Bad Milo is […]

I was very confused when the John Cusack movie 2012 came out in 2010.  It seemed like in order to play to the real life mythology surrounding the Mayan apocalypse prophesized for 2012, the film would have been released as close to the alleged doomsday as possible.  Now I get it.  It’s been more than […]

Byzantium

| October 30, 2013 | 0 Comments

Halloween nights are generally accepted as a splendid time to pop in a nice horror film, sit back with some candy, and enjoy the fright fest. So that is what I did, choosing Byzantium (2012) as my nights attraction. The moment I finished the final minutes of Byzantium I relished in amusement; the feeling that the […]
