Embrace of the Vampire

Embrace of the Vampire

Sometimes, a film has no business being remade.  Steve Martin’s spin on The Pink Panther for instance is a true abomination.  I had even heard tell of a Casablanca remake starring Ben Affleck and Jennifer Lopez, before God stepped in and broke the couple up.  Good lookin’ out, big guy.  Sometimes a film can really […]

Well, it seems like we’ll never really be rid of everyone’s favorite mass-murdering doll, Chucky.  In this sequel to the 1988 horror “classic,” Chucky (Brad Dourif, reprising the role), is mysteriously mailed to Sarah (Chantal Quesnelle) and her daughter Nica (Fiona Dourif; Brad Dourif’s daughter).  Things hit the ground running when Nica is woken up […]

Resolution

Resolution

I volunteered to review this for one reason:  there’s a quote on the cover of the DVD from the Village Voice that states that Resolution “Puts The Cabin in the Woods to Shame.”  Now, if you haven’t seen The Cabin in the Woods, it’s fantastic.  It made my top ten list for last year against […]

Hatchet III

Hatchet III

| August 5, 2013 | 0 Comments

The Hatchet franchise is one steeped in notoriety. Adam Green’s homage to 80s horror first made waves on the horror scene with the first installment in 2006, but didn’t receive much fanfare except within the horror community itself. Its sequel received its fair share of publicity in 2010, when AMC famously agreed to distribute the […]

Every year, Mr. Lambrick (Jeffrey Combs; Re-Animator) hosts an event at his home.  The eccentric billionaire invites 8 hand-chosen, unrelated people to dinner with the promise of a game, and the idea that the winner will receive a substantial amount of money – presumably enough to set them up for life.  The game in question […]

Being a horror fan, I often find myself in discussions with other horror fans about what movies we may have recently watched, and unfortunately more often than not we compare notes on what we disliked about those films. Watching a lot of independent horror films naturally leads to these kinds of conversations for horror fans […]

Deadball is- well, maybe that’s the best place to start. Deadball simply is. Even days after watching the movie, the fact that Deadball exists is nothing short of amazing. Not because the movie itself is shocking, but because I’m still trying to figure out… why? I mean, I know a blame lot of swill I […]

Shadow People

Shadow People

I had a surreal moment at the beginning of my viewing of Shadow People.  When we’re first introduced to the Charlie character, he’s hosting his late night radio show and we only hear his voice.  He’s talking to a caller, who is asking about a girl he likes on facebook but doesn’t know how to […]
