Martyrs (2015)…A Pale Imitation of a Startling Original

Martyrs…it’s one hell of a messed up cinematic experience. Any way you slice or dice it, the story of two young women whose quest for vengeance leads them into the clutches of a depraved group of people trying to create modern day martyrs, is one of those epic mind fuck flicks that will stay with you for a vast eternity, … Keep Reading…

Poltergeist (2015)…They’re Heeeeeeerrre…Now Go Away!

Remakes…It’s no secret that I am not fond of these particular movies, and although I’m willing to admit they occasionally do hit the mark, this is unfortunately not the case with the over-hyped remake of Poltergeist.

Black Christmas (1974 & 2006)…Simultaneously the Very Best & Very Worst Holiday Horror Movies!

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…
