Bad Milo

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

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 […]

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 […]

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

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 […]
