Hack and Slash: Sleepaway Camp

Sleepaway Camp is very much a rip off of films like Friday the 13th and The Burning. It steals the setting, much of the killing, and even the …

When Nature Attacks: Rogue

Australia has given us many great imports and as far as I’m concerned writer/director Greg McLean (Wolf Creek 1 & 2, The Darkness, The Belko …

Hack and Slash: The Strangers-Prey at Night

2008’s The Strangers was a dark, relentless, and brutal film filled with unbearable tension. It was moody, heartbreaking, and built genuine terror …

This is Torture: Amusement

The cover of amusement is a bit misleading. One would think this will be a story about a deranged clown. While that metaphorically has some weight, …

Techno Terrors: Chopping Mall

The idea that technology would turn on us one day is hardly new. Between 2001: A Space Odyssey and The Terminator, that ground was covered fairly …

Box of Screams: Supernatural-Season 13

Supernatural has been through many evolutions in the now 13 seasons it has been airing. We have seen many come and go, sometimes to the shows …

Haunted Horrors: Prison

The concept of setting a haunting in a prison is actually a rather inspired one. It’s surprising, frankly, that there aren’t more films that have …

Devil’s Reich: Blood Creek

It is widely known that Adolf Hitler employed some unusual techniques when plotting his world domination. He is said to have become obsessed with the …

Invading Species: Body Snatchers

Body Snatchers is a rather clever take on the classic Jack Finney tale of pod people taking over the world. Director Abel Ferrera (The Driller …

Hack and Slash: Killer Movie

There are so many things about Killer Movie that should have made it not work. The writing isn’t terribly inspired, many of the characters are very …

TV

When Nature Attacks: The Ruins (Unrated)

Let’s face it, nature is a cruel mistress. There are so many things out there that actively want to consume you that it may be better to just stay …

Breaking In: Mother’s Day (2010)

Rebecca De Mornay is an actress that doesn’t get the credit she deserves. Not many people are capable of playing crazy quite as well as she is. Yes …

Cronenberg Rising: Rabid

No matter what you think of his films or their content, you cannot deny that David Cronenberg has put his stamp on the horror genre with films like …

Western Front: Bone Tomahawk

I have to admit that westerns aren’t usually my favorite genre. They have their highlights but they have just never been for me. I remember watching …

Head Case: Inoperable

I want so badly to root for Danielle Harris. I really do. She is a likable and fairly talented actress. That’s why it’s so frustrating that the roles …

Monstrous Medicine: Tell Me How I Die

Tell Me How I Die is a study in mediocrity. When it’s not being boring, generic, and unimaginative, it’s downright bad. We’re not talking ha ha bad …

Haunted Horrors: Winchester

Sarah Winchester is a fascinating historical figure. A woman that was thrust into running one of the most well-known firearms manufacturers of all …

Body and Brains: The Return of the Living Dead

Return of the Living Dead is everything that was great about 80’s horror. You have over the top acting and comedy. You also have great practical …

In the Blood: Dying Breed

In the opening of this film we are reminded that from the mid 1700’s to the early 1800’s, Australia was a prison colony for the British. We are told …

When Nature Attacks: Pig Hunt

Let’s face it, there aren’t enough horror films about giant killer boars in the world. Razorback is really the only one that comes to mind. We get …

Zoology

Hack and Slash: Child Eater

It’s not really fair to lump this film in with other slasher pictures because it actually has a sort of fairytale slant to it. For a film I had never …

In Your Head: Soul Survivors

This film is bad. I have to state that right from the get go. You need to understand that this movie is a giant mess. It tries to hold itself up to …

Horror

Invading Species: Phantoms

Dean Koontz is a well-known and fairly prolific horror writer, so it has always surprised me that more of his stories haven’t been brought to the big …

Baring Fangs: Innocent Blood

Let’s face it, with the exception of An American Werewolf in London, director John Landis doesn’t exactly get the horror cred he deserves. He’s also …

Crime

One Eyed, One Horned: Humanoids from the Deep aka Monster

Roger Corman is known for the amount of shlock and T & A in his films. It’s his brand. In the late 70’s and early 80’s people were becoming more …
