Abominable Movie Review

Apr 30, 2020 No Comments

I’ve been watching a lot of ‘80s direct-to-video creature features lately. I couldn’t tell you for sure exactly how I got started down that particular cinematic rabbit hole, just that it’s addictive once you start. Something about B-movie efforts, with their bald-faced earnestness and enthusiastic effects, can’t help but be charming. Abominable, a 2020 release […]

The Invisible Man Movie Review

Mar 04, 2020 No Comments

When I was a kid, the TV series The A-Team—a show about four Vietnam vets who dished out vigilante justice on behalf of the innocent while being on the run themselves—was extremely popular and when we neighborhood children would get together, we’d pretend we were A-team members, naturally. All of us wanted to be B.A. […]

Cupid Movie Review

Feb 05, 2020 No Comments

Love is in the air, everywhere you look around, during this time of year. But you’ve been misled your entire life, folks. Cupid doesn’t actually enjoy love–in fact, the mythological creature hates everything about it and the people who celebrate the Hallmark holiday on February 14th. Cupid starts off quite promising–an animated sequence tells us […]

The Tokoloshe Movie Review

Dec 11, 2019 No Comments

“Why do you like horror?” We get this question a lot, usually from people too puritanical or weak stomached to enjoy the genre, but this time was different. The woman who asked me was a refuge from Iraq. “I’ve seen too much horror,” she said. “I don’t like it.” I had no good answer; I […]

This Is Our Home Movie Review

Dec 04, 2019 1 Comment

If there’s one thing I love, it’s a scary story with a creepy kid as its main monster. I mean, kids are scary enough in real life, right? I have two of my own and I know this to be true. So, when I saw the trailer for Omri Dorani’s new film called This Is […]

Doctor Sleep Movie Review

Nov 20, 2019 1 Comment

Confession time: I prefer Stanley Kubrick’s take on The Shining to Stephen King’s. That’s not a knock on King. I burned through the original novel in a couple days when I picked it up back in college. But precious little fiction in any medium can lay claim to the brooding menace that infuses every scene […]

Portal Movie Review

Nov 13, 2019 No Comments

You’ve no doubt seen those supernatural reality shows dotting your channel guide. Most are low-budget affairs that promise much and deliver little. The same could be said of Ghost Seekers, whose crew is having great difficulty scaring up paranormal entities. As lead investigator Steve (Ryan Merriman) puts it, “Hard evidence is exactly that — hard […]

Blood Myth Movie Review

Nov 06, 2019 No Comments

In our ultra-modern and super-connected world, the past seems almost superfluous. We are so used to our modern conveniences that it seems our ancestors must have been another species entirely. What happened even ten years ago seems like a different lifetime. But the past is not so easily erased. It patiently endures and continues into […]

Pumpkins Movie Review

Oct 29, 2019 No Comments

Horrorween is just a few days away, and I don’t know about you, but this is my favorite time of the year. Now that my family and I have relocated from the Hellmouth (aka Florida) to the Midwest for a bit, we finally get the opportunity to experience what a “real” Halloween looks and feels […]

Clownado Movie Review

Oct 01, 2019 No Comments

This clownado swirls up a whole lot of crazy characters, cheap-chunky guts and a little T&A. Director Todd Sheets (Dreaming Purple Neon, Bonehill Road), wrote, directed and edited Clownado and much in the same fashion of his other films, Clownado harkens back to grindhouse and pulp influences, but despite the ambitious effort to merge clowns […]
