Review: Kiss of the Damned (2012)

Vampires, they’re a sexy bunch ain’t they? Of all the villains to grace the big screen, vampires are the ones most often portrayed as eternally beautiful, desirable and with an irresistible allure that makes them almost perfect predators. Now I’m obviously not speaking of the white-washed, bloodless, toothless Twilight bunch (you all know I can’t stand that shit), but vamps … Keep Reading…

Anarchy Parlor (2014)…An Unfulfilling Tale of Skin & Suffering

Torture porn…don’t you just hate that term? It implies that someone, somewhere, gets off on watching people suffer excruciating torment, and although that may be true, I prefer to think that most horror fans are only trying to test our limits when watching flicks like Hostel (which I loved), Turistas (meh) and The Human Centipede (which I hated). Anarchy Parlor is … Keep Reading…

Pay the Ghost (2015)…Probably Not the Worst Film You’ll See This Year

Do you remember, way back in the 1990’s, when Nicolas Cage was hailed as one of the greatest living actors? Seems unlikely right now, I know, because if one were to measure his greatness by his last 30 or so films, I could only assume that his talents were grossly overestimated. Make no mistake, Cage’s performances in such classics as his … Keep Reading…

Horror Quickie: The Last Witch Hunter (2015)

I don’t think I’ll be shocking anyone here when I say that Vin Diesel, gorgeous creature that he is, has not always been the most prolific actor. We all know the man is hot as Hades and possesses an undeniable charisma, but no one has ever accused him of challenging himself or his audience with his chosen roles. Fortunately that makes absolutely no … Keep Reading…

Tobe Hooper’s Djinn (2015)…Just Doesn’t Live Up to its Potential

You know what sucks? When a movie is sooooooo close to being good and then it just…isn’t. Director Tobe Hooper’s latest flick Djinn is one of those movies, and fuck if it isn’t a piss off…again. I mean COME ON, why does every movie about the djinn have to be a disappointment…obviously I mean every movie since Wishmaster. Sigh… The … Keep Reading…

Sinister 2 & The Fall of Mr Boogie

Despite what some may think, invoking fear in an audience is not an easy task. Most horror films, regardless of budget, very rarely manage much more than a well placed jolt or momentary scare that fades as quickly as it surfaces, and unfortunately Sinister 2 is one of those movies without any real frights…or much else worth watching either. The original … Keep Reading…

Final Girl (2015)…Stylish to a Fault but Seriously Lacking in Substance

Sigh…How I wanted to love this movie… The familiar story of a young woman named Veronica (Breslin) who, as a child, is recruited into a nameless, covert agency by a calculated man named William (Wes Bentley, who I forever think of as the plastic bag boner boy from American Beauty) and trained to be an assassin…of sorts. At the completion of … Keep Reading…

Felicia’s Review: Insidious 3 (2015)

Insidious 3 starts with teenager Quinn Brenner (Stefanie Scott) seeking out the help from psychic Elise Rainier (Lin Shaye) in attempts to communicate with her recently deceased mother. Quinn is faced with rejection from the gifted but recently retired psychic. It is simply too hard to use her abilities and she can no longer simply contact the after life but … 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. Funnily enough, this is not the worst horror reboot I’ve ever seen, not by a long shot, but this unnecessary, unwanted and unimaginative remake isn’t … Keep Reading…

Felicia’s Review: Unfriended (2014)

Unfriended is the latest studio release looking to bank off the most recent wave of hand held footage films, but as a twist, this time the villainous murderer is a social media stalking, screen name killer. Right… Back in my day killers weren’t just screen names! They were masked mad men running through cornfields with chainsaws, lunatics who terrorized teens … Keep Reading…
