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 […]

Aug 13, 2011 No Comments

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. When I heard that the West Londoner, and motion capture expert, Andy Serkis was on board, I cried tears of joy. When I heard Marky Mark Wahlberg was […]

Jun 10, 2011 1 Comment

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 […]

Interview with Writer-Director Cory Udler

Apr 10, 2011 No Comments

Wisconsin based filmmaker, Cory Udler marches to the beat of his own drummer.  The fact that his drummer is a maniac with ball-peen hammers for sticks and a hollowed out human torso-snare is of little consequence.  It just means that Cory makes weird flicks.  His influences comprise the A-list of B-movies from the pinnacle of […]

Insidious Movie Review

Apr 09, 2011 1 Comment

After much anticipation, ceaselessly whetted by ads and commercials that were themselves quite insidious, I was able to watch the film Insidious on its Friday, April 1st, 2011 date of release. When I first began seeing these teasers for it a couple of weeks ago, the imagery and the concept fascinated me, albeit a bit […]

Interview with Actress Michelle Shields

Mar 20, 2011 4 Comments

In this day and age, sisters are doing it for themselves. No, I’m not talking about boring stuff like being the face of key government positions or playing head bread maker in the 21st century household across the globe. I’m talking about scaring the crap out of you.  Long gone are the days of women […]

Face Off: Bringing Monster Making to the Masses

Feb 21, 2011 No Comments

Face Off, the new reality series on the Syfy television network, has been a long time coming.    Sometime around 1984, a couple video rental places sprung up in my hometown.  My mother, always trying to keep her head above water with regard to technology, had a VCR and immediately got memberships to these video rental […]
