Maniac (2012)…Reflections on a Remake

Hmmm Elijah Wood as a murdering, mommy obsessed, lady scalping maniac…I’ll admit it, I had my doubts (many, many doubts).With his delicate, almost elven features and his un-intimidating stature, he didn’t seem exactly an ideal choice to fill the original maniac’s (Joe Spinell) big clunky shoes…come on, you know what I mean. He’s, you know, short and adorable, like a … Keep Reading…

5 Wickedly Fun 80’s Horror Flicks You Should Be Watching This Halloween!

Halloween is fast approaching kiddies, and with it come the customary lists of high brow horror that one must absolutely watch, lest you lose your right to call yourself a true fan of the genre. Nothing against your better class of horror films of course, but I figured I’d switch it up a little with a list of some purely fun … Keep Reading…

Killing Mr. Right (2014)…A Fun and Twisted Little Indie Horror!

There’s a lot to be said about low-budget, independent horror films, not the least of which is that, more often than not, they kinda suck. So, even though the trailer looked like Killing Mr. Right might be a decent viewing I went into it expecting only something to hold my attention while I folded my laundry (oh yeah, it’s all scary/sexy … Keep Reading…

See No Evil 2…The Soskas and the Beauty of Horror

Fuck yes!!! Nah seriously, FUCK YES!!!! I just finished See No Evil 2, a movie that I watched only because of the Soska Sisters’ involvement, and I am now watching it again, because it kicked THAT much ass!!! I mean fuck, look at all the exclamations I’m using, I am one enthused bitch right now. Alright, first, I might as well … Keep Reading…

Fade to Black: Jeff Grobnagger is Kinda the Man!

In the hopes of saving the life of an oddly bleach obsessed author (ahem), I decided last night to start reading Fade to Black, the first in a series of five novels (ambitious) called The Grobnagger Chronicles. What can I say, I like helping people, and pleasantly enough however, I found myself hooked from the first two sentences. “Any minute now … Keep Reading…

Frankenstein in Heels: Women and Monsters

Did you know that there’s only been one female version of the Frankenstein monster? Of course I don’t mean that there’s only ever been one female character to be re-animated on film, and I’m also not referring to the “brides”, but speaking strictly of Dr. Victor Frankenstein’s creation, only one lady has ever filled those enormous shoes. German born Austrian model/actress Susan … Keep Reading…

Fright Night (1985) and the Near Perfect Horror Film

Contrary to popular belief, Fright Night has never been, nor will it ever be, remade. Tragically there exists a tasteless rumor, believed by many to be fact, that some very misguided soul took it upon himself to remake this near flawless gem of a horror-comedy, and in his endless detachment from rational thought, cast Colin Farrell as the villain. Ludicrous really, … Keep Reading…

Mr. Tusk (2014) and the Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Movie.

What. The. Fuck? Let me begin by saying, in case the blog title left some doubts as to my feelings about this movie, that Tusk is bloody, fucking awful. Argh, no seriously argh. I have lost the will to communicate this movie was so bad. Holy crap, what the hell was every single person involved thinking? What was Kevin Smith … Keep Reading…

Martyrs (2008), An Exercise in Suffering…w/ some spoilers

Martyrs is not, by any stretch of the imagination, an easy viewing. In fact,  I would go as far as to say that most people should just straight up not watch this movie, like ever. But for the more sadistic among you, or for the terminally curious (such as myself), I realize no amount of warning will keep you away. Personally, … Keep Reading…

The Exorcist (1973) and why 11 year olds probably shouldn’t watch it.

Ah Linda Blair, you crucifix defiling little hussy…if only you knew the sleepless nights you were responsible for. Well, to be fair, I think my mother was more to blame for the fear induced insomnia that plagued me during the tail end of 1992. After all, Linda Blair had no say as to who watched her film, my mother on … Keep Reading…
