Cooties

Cooties

| November 30, 2015

I saw an advertisement at the Alamo Drafthouse in which Elijah Wood told the audience to keep quiet during the movie.  Behind Wood was a poster for Cooties, which featured him, a blonde who looked like Kristen Bell (turned out to be Allison Pill; The Newsroom) and a group of other adults fighting for their […]

Jaws 19

Jaws 19

| October 23, 2015

No one was more skeptical than me going into Jaws 19.  It’s difficult for any film series to stay fresh and interesting after 19 installments and the Jaws franchise is absolutely no exception.  The original Jaws is a masterpiece, which I’ve been watching since I was a kid.  That is maybe not appropriate for a […]

The Rocky Horror Picture Show: 40th Anniversary Celebration

The Rocky Horror Picture Show: 40th Anniversary Celebration

| September 30, 2015

On Blu-ray, The Rocky Horror Picture Show looks and sounds sweet, just like a Transvestite from Transylvania should. And I know you must have been shivering with anticipation when you heard that 20th Century Fox Home Entertainment was re-releasing Rocky Horror on Blu-ray (as well as DVD and Digital HD) in a new, 40th Anniversary […]

Blood Punch

Blood Punch

| September 6, 2015

First off, I have no idea why this movie is called Blood Punch.  There is a lot of blood, but very little punching.  Maybe it’s an old esoteric saying that I’m not familiar with and somehow perfectly describes this movie about meth cooks trying to make a big score in the middle of the woods […]

Vendetta

| August 18, 2015

With 2012’s American Mary and the “T is for Torture Porn” segment of ABCs of Death 2 (2014) the directing duo of the Soska Sisters made a name for themselves as a pair who loves to bring the sick and twisted to the screen. That they pretty much immediately thereafter went to work for WWE […]

A young girl studying the psychology and physiology of lucid dreaming finds herself working through some family baggage in her sleep.  Jessica (Lilly-Fleur Pointeaux) and her mother (Catriona MacColl) have never gotten along.  Caitlyn (MacColl) doesn’t understand why Jessica is wasting her life studying dreams and delusions and not devoting her life to something more […]

Der Samurai

Der Samurai

| June 9, 2015

Living up to its distributors namesake, Till Klienhart’s Der Samurai, from Artsploitation Films, is part art house, part slasher film that manages to entrance with its nightmarish imagery, but doesn’t make it compelling enough to withstand the test of time. The film centers around Jakob (Michel Diercks), a young police officer in a small town, […]

Asmodexia

| June 3, 2015

Sometimes I wonder why I volunteer to review so many horror movies.  I very rarely stumble upon a good one.  Every great horror movie I’ve ever seen is shown to me by a friend who vouches for it.  I do like the versatility of the horror genre.  There may not be many movies that are […]

Spring

Spring

| June 1, 2015

I came to the attention of directors Benson and Moorhead from their first feature film, Resolution, through a friendly recommendation. “Yeah man, you’d dig it” was what my buddy just randomly spouted out, as I was discussing not having seen a worthwhile horror movie in the last few months. The film managed to both blur […]
