Review: Don’t Be Afraid Of The Dark (2011)

The Guillermo del Toro-Produced remake of the 1973 Made-For-TV film hit theaters this past weekend. See how it stacks up in Jeff’s review…




An Italian Disasterpiece: Hell of the Living Dead

An Italian Disasterpiece: Hell of the Living Dead

Tweet While some are swooning over Argento’s visual design, Bava’s atmospheric giallos, and Fulci’s colorful gore during Italian Week, I’ve decided to share some laughter over one of the epic failures of Italian horror. Whatever name you call it — Virus, Hell of the Living Dead, Night of the Zombies, Zombie Creeping Flesh, Zombies of […]




A Night At the Opera, Giallo Style

A Night At the Opera, Giallo Style

Tweet There are a lot of reasons filmmakers have been spending 90 years bringing Gaston Leroux’s Phantom of the Opera to the big screen. There’s a complicated, disfigured villain that needs to be played by a veteran presence that can be seductive and sadistic. Spectacle is necessary because the opera house itself is a leading […]




TUCKER & DALE VS. EVIL Scheduled for U.S. Release

TUCKER & DALE VS. EVIL Scheduled for U.S. Release

Tweet Magnolia’s Magnet Releasing has acquired the U.S. distro rights to horror comedy Tucker & Dale vs. Evil. Director Eli Craig’s festival darling stars Alan Tudyk (Serenity) and Tyler Labine (Reaper) as best friends mistaken for murderous rednecks by a group of college kids, among them Katrina Bowden (30 Rock). After debuting at Sundance, Tucker […]




For the Fans of Mainstream Horror

For the Fans of Mainstream Horror

Tweet The lovers of Hollywood-inspired, non-challenging horror movies often get a bad rap. For some reason, we consider anything that doesn’t make it to theaters and doesn’t have big names attached to it as a more coveted caliber of film. And with that indie, edgy sub-genre attached, it is instantly favored against a theatrically-released horror […]




Extraterrestrials (and Lens Flares) be damned: A Review of JJ Abrams’ Super 8 (2011)

Extraterrestrials (and Lens Flares) be damned: A Review of JJ Abrams’ Super 8 (2011)

Tweet I’ve developed something of a like/hate relationship with JJ Abrams‘ work in the past few years. I have not quite reached the point of acquiring any feelings of adoration for anything the man has done though I can acknowledge that his heart is most certainly in the right place. However, with his latest opus […]




Murder for Hire in Salem: The 1830 Murder of Captain Joseph White

Murder for Hire in Salem: The 1830 Murder of Captain Joseph White

Tweet On April 7th, 1830 in Salem, Massachusetts, servant Benjamin White was descending the stairs to his master’s elegant three-story home when he discovered a back window to the house was propped open by a plank. Fearful that his master had been robbed, Benjamin awoke Mrs. Kimball, the housekeeper at 6:30 a.m. then rushed to […]




By My Righteous Hand: The Bleeding House

By My Righteous Hand: The Bleeding House

Tweet From the beginning, The Bleeding House is a quirky and strange feature with a slow burn, methodical approach. This eventually gives way to something that is both startling and brutal. It’s like an orchestral movement that crescendos into one big gut punching finish. At the onset, we’re introduced to a family of four who’ve […]




Bikers, Babes and Bullshit: The Violent Kind (2010)

Bikers, Babes and Bullshit: The Violent Kind (2010)

Tweet Jesus fuck, I hate this movie. Let’s get that out of the way right now so admirers of this can either start spewing hate at me in the comments and those unaware of the film at all, know where I stand. That said, “hate” may be too strong a word here. Vehemently dislike may […]




Get Your Boots On And Your Guns Ready – A Review Of Stake Land (2010)

Get Your Boots On And Your Guns Ready – A Review Of Stake Land (2010)

Tweet It seems like I’ve been waiting for Stake Land for at least two years now. The moment I laid eyes on the first trailer, I knew that this was the vampire film that I had been waiting on. It’s hard to be a fan of the sub-genre, as most things related have been terrible, […]




Interview With Director Johnny Daggers

Interview With Director Johnny Daggers

Tweet The rich history of horror originating from Pittsburgh includes George Romero, Bill “Chilly Billy” Cardille, and Tom Savini. Director Johnny Daggers of DaggerVision Films can add his name to this list. Fiercely independent and outspoken, Daggers is making a name for himself in the world of low budget filmmaking. He took some time from […]




Would You Like Fries With That?

Would You Like Fries With That?

Tweet Thor, the latest blockbuster from Paramount and Marvel Studios, is the result of what happens when too many people have too much riding on a franchise opportunity: they spend so much time making sure it isn’t bad that they neglect to make it any good. Designed to stroke all of the right brain centers […]




Spring Cleaning

Spring Cleaning

Tweet I own movies I will probably never watch again.  And that’s pretty lame, because it means that I wasted money and precious shelf space. It may be time to clean out the shelves, making room for stellar Blu-Rays in place of less-than-relevant DVD’s/VHS’s. Here’s 5 titles that probably shouldn’t survive my spring cleaning.   […]




Teens vs. Corpses, Don’t Call Them Zombies

Teens vs. Corpses, Don’t Call Them Zombies

Tweet Ty Drago’s “The Undertakers: Rise of the Corpses” pits a ragtag band of teens against extradimensional invaders who walk around wearing dead bodies.   Vampires, sexiest in the pantheon of monsters, have been ubiquitous in youth fiction over the past decade. But “The Undertakers: Rise of the Corpses,” the newest novel from Ty Drago, […]




We Aren’t In Nilbog Any More: Review of THE TROLL HUNTER (2010)

We Aren’t In Nilbog Any More: Review of THE TROLL HUNTER (2010)

Tweet Two sub-genres I’ve never understood the appeal of: Mockumentary and ” Found Footage Films” (not real found footage, mind you, but that CLOVERFIELD bullshit). Sure, there are the rare exceptions as Christopher Guest rarely misses his mark as far as mockumentaries are concerned and every once in a while there is a solid “found-footage” […]
