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…

The Terrible Ten: 2015’s Most Avoidable Horror Movies

Oh the giddy joy of the “the worst list”…it’s awful to admit it, but writing about terrible movies is so much fun I’m almost ashamed of myself…I’m not quite there yet, but I’m working up to feeling actual shame. But let’s not talk about that, instead let’s focus on the worst, most awful horror movies that the last year has … Keep Reading…

10 Must Watch Horror Movies of 2015

It’s that magical time of year again lovelies, when reviewers, bloggers and others with far too much time on our hands, look back at the last 12 months of movie releases and shamelessly weed through them as we peck at, dissect, deconstruct and generally tear apart the efforts of others, all for the annual Best and Worst Horror Movies of … Keep Reading…

Radcliffe and McAvoy Go Slumming in Victor Frankenstein (2015)

It’s always disappointing when great actors find themselves neck deep in terrible movies, mostly because history has shown that they can do SO much better. James McAvoy and Daniel Radcliffe, two of the most talented actors working today, have most definitely done better than this, so much better in fact, that I really can’t help but wonder why on earth … 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…

The Final Girls (2015)…A Fun & Fresh Twist on the Slasher Genre

I love a good 80’s slasher flick, don’t you? Friday the 13th, Sleepaway Camp, Cheerleader Camp, Slumber Party Massacre…the cheesier the better as far as I’m concerned, and let’s face it, the 80’s were THE definitive era of cheesy horror. The following decades had plenty of decent killer flicks of course, but the genre started taking itself way too seriously at … Keep Reading…

The Exorcism of Molly Hartley (2015)…A Straight Up Evil Sequel (and Not in a Good Way)

Sequels are always kinda touch and go, some are good, some are great, some, like this one, are the cinematic equivalent of eating week old fried chicken…nasty, unsatisfying and guaranteed to make you wish you’d never tried it in the first place. It’s not like The Haunting of Molly Hartley, arguably one of the very worst films of 2008, really needed … Keep Reading…

Crimson Peak (2015)…Del Toro Delivers a Hauntingly Gorgeous but Unsatisfying Fable

There is not one moment during Guillermo del Toro’s sumptuous gothic ghost story Crimson Peak, when we are not fully aware that we are witnessing the work of a master of the craft. Everything, from the stunning set designs to the opulent costumes to the phenomenal, first rate cast speak volumes about del Toro’s ability to weave the intricate worlds of his own imagining … Keep Reading…

Horror Quickie: Last Shift (2014)

Watching horror movies ain’t always a cake-walk. Some of these flicks give real meaning to the term unbearably bad (I’m looking at you Gnome Alone), so it’s always fan-fucking-tastic when a movie I was expecting to blow actually ends up being pretty good. I’m not exactly sure why I was expecting Last Shift to be terrible, maybe the poster, maybe because police movies tend … Keep Reading…
