Crazed Movie Review

Dec 05, 2016 No Comments by

Crazed is director Kevin A. McCarthy‘s contribution to the large canon of renegade cop films. While the genre hit its heyday nearly thirty years ago, the idea of an officer of the law gone rogue still fascinates as much as it always has. Has Crazed succeeded in getting away with it or is this one […]

The Lurking Fear Movie Review

Jul 05, 2016 No Comments by

Apart from a couple names, the title, and an association with the paranormal, The Lurking Fear is a 1994 film that shares little with the H.P. Lovecraft story from whence came its title. This tale of a ghoul-assailed town from director C. Courtney Joyner and finally released on Blu-ray by Full Moon Features is a […]

Alienated Movie Review

May 10, 2016 No Comments by

Alien abductions are almost always unpleasant experiences—take it from me. They are scary, fleeting, fragmented episodes that come back in waves of terrifying recollection. Thus, they are a great topic for any horror movie dealing with extraterrestrial life. Brian Ackley’s Alienated is a film about ominous UFO sightings and a crumbling relationship. The probing question […]

Star Leaf Movie Review

Jul 07, 2015 2 Comments by

Richard Cranor’s Star Leaf is a film about many things, including aliens, personal demons, rules, deceit, horror, and lastly—surprisingly—marijuana. For a film that is about three friends trekking through the thick wilderness of the Pacific Northwest to find and toke up on an extraterrestrial strain of weed, though, there is surprisingly little of the tropes […]

Cthulhu Lives! An Eldritch Tribute to H.P. Lovecraft Book Review

Apr 14, 2015 No Comments by

In Cthulhu Lives!, editor Salomé Jones brings together many stories for Ghostwoods Books that fall under the vast cyclopean umbrella that is the Cthulhu Mythos. The stories range from straightforward horror stories to epistolary fiction and everything in between. If that isn’t cool enough, how does an afterward by S.T. Joshi sound? Pretty bad ass, […]
