Wes Craven (1939-2015)

02/24/07 - Writer/Director Wes Craven(pictured) and his son Jonathan Craven co-wrote "The Hills Have Eyes 2" which hits theatres on March 23rd.

Anythinghorror is sad to report another loss to the horror genre this year: Wes Craven has died over the weekend at the age of 76, after a long battle with brain cancer. There are many in the industry who could be described as One Hit Wonders: somehow coming up with a brilliant, innovative, well-made movie, … Continue reading

Zombie Resurrection (2014)


Full disclosure here: I’m writing this on the cusp of having just lost my job. I worked in a customer service capacity, was really enjoying it, but I made one or two too many mistakes during my probationary period, so they decided to let me go. So, maybe the review you’re about to read might … Continue reading

Shock Value (2014)


Some time ago, I reviewed the movie SHADOW OF THE VAMPIRE (here), which while a vampire movie (duh!) had a novel premise: that the director of the original silent classic NOSFERATU got hold of a real live (unalive?) vampire to star in the movie, for authenticity’s sake, but that this bloodsucker grew too powerful and … Continue reading

Deliver Us From Evil (2014)


Anyone who knows me, personally or through my guest reviews here, will be aware of my long-term affection for KOLCHAK: THE NIGHT STALKER, the short-lived but highly influential horror series (if you know nothing about it, go reread my retrospective on it here). It, and the TV movies which inspired the series, successfully combined the … Continue reading

Oculus (2014)


Anyone who’s hung around Anythinghorror long enough knows that Scott and I are staunch supporters of independent horror filmmakers. Low in budget, they often compensate with original, inventive ideas, stories, atmosphere and direction, and the best of them can stand head and shoulders above many of the generic studio offerings out there. Back in 2011, Scott … Continue reading

Popcorn (1991)


True Believers, I realise I might be older than Methuselah or even Madonna compared to some of you, but I’m not *that* old. I may have been old enough to have seen STAR WARS when it first came out, but I’m not old enough to have been around for the gimmicky horror and science fiction … Continue reading

The Car (1977)

Car 13

Okay, another blast from the past. And what a blast! I saw this in 1977 when I was eleven, and went to a drive-in. No, Uncle Deggsy wasn’t a pre-teen Fonzie, taking chicks on dates on his Big Wheel. No, the parents took my sister and I there, where we played in the playground for … Continue reading

Trailer for Leprechaun: Origins Drops. And, Um…

Lep Origins

Well… What can I say? I’ve watched it, rewatched it, and it, um… Some background first, perhaps. Anyway, LEPRECHAUN: ORIGINS will be the seventh in the franchise, and an apparent reboot which usually means taking a character back to its roots, hence the title. Warwick Davis managed quite well in the first six movies, but … Continue reading

Sinbad and the Eye of the Tiger (1977)


Full disclosure from the start: this is, for the most part, not a good film – at least, not if you’re over the age of eleven. I was that age when the movie came out, several weeks after a little number called STAR WARS appeared. I desperately wanted to see STAR WARS, without knowing anything … Continue reading

Patrick (2013)


Australia’s a funny old country. They have the most beautiful beaches in the world, their tiniest wildlife can kill three grown men with just a dirty look, their money is colour-coded and waterproof for when you’re drunk and in the water (it’s true!), and their lager can double as an anaesthetic. Area-wise, it’s about the … Continue reading
