Sep 25, 2011 No Comments

Sometimes the most inspirational epiphanies strike during the unlikeliest times.  Take Rich “Freakshow” Peterson for example.  The self-made late night horror host and director of the Madison Horror Film Fest was neither of those things five years ago when he was kicking back on the couch, squeezing in the last bit of available rest and […]

Dead Hooker in a Trunk: An Indie Exploitation Exposé

Sep 18, 2011 No Comments

In early 2010, I caught wind of a film hailing from Canada that had the indie world abuzz. I did a little research and was immediately dragged into the hype. Two beautiful twins who coined themselves the Twisted Twins had made a faux-grindhouse trailer and showed it at their film school’s graduation ceremony. Half the […]

Don’t Be Afraid of the Dark Movie Review

Aug 28, 2011 No Comments

In 1973 a made-for-TV movie scared and inspired future cretin creator Guillermo del Toro so much that it’s stuck with him for nearly forty years.  And after much hype and plenty of creepy commercials, the del Toro-produced and co-written remake of ‘Don’t Be Afraid of the Dark’ lives up to most of the manufactured anticipation […]

Alma Movie Review: A Concise Creepy Doll Nightmare

Aug 20, 2011 3 Comments

This is more of an artistic critique, over film review, so as not to distract with spoilers. The moral in this sublime animated fable is actually a crusting of several worn, oft-spoken and trite truisms any child of the Bible belt or seasoned guru quipper knows: “Curiosity killed the cat.” “Be careful what you wish […]

Ravenous horror humorist, Billy Boyce is back with more amusing musings on the latest genre output…. When I heard this movie was in pre-production, I was stoked.

Does chasing after marauding trolls through the Norwegian countryside and taking them out with a bevy of homemade specialized weapons sound like fun? Of course it does. Did I mention that these aren’t the cute, fuzzy little critters that sit on the end of your pencil? This weekend, American audiences will have a limited opportunity […]

Hobo with a Shotgun Movie Review

May 05, 2011 No Comments

Hobo with a Shotgun, directed by Jason Eisener and starring Rutger Hauer in the titular role, looks, sounds, and plays exactly like what it’s emulating – an exploitation extravaganza circa the early 1980’s.  Having originally been made as a fake trailer for the promotion of the Quinton Tarantino and Robert Rodriguez throwback vehicle, Grindhouse (2007), […]

Interview with Actress Rosa Frausto

Apr 24, 2011 12 Comments

With the glut of crappy remakes to go along with half-baked motives and embarrassingly cheesy acting that have plagued mainstream horror cinema over the last few years, I sometimes wonder what I’ll see first (if I ever witness either at all)- a Chicago Cubs world championship or another big time, Hollywood horror blockbuster to sit […]

Scream 4 Movie Review

Apr 17, 2011 4 Comments

Whenever you hear ‘Part 4’ with a film, it’s human nature to shudder. So I don’t blame anyone for going into Scream 4 with skepticism. However, I went in with teenage exuberance – I seriously had butterflies in my stomach when the trailers ended and I heard the first sounds of a phone ringing.  I […]
