Paranormal Activity: The Marked Ones (2014)

PATMO9

When I was younger and still an avid collector of Marvel Comics, I would wait with bated breath the Annuals of my favourite comics; for only twice the price, I could get double the action! I sort of lost interest when Marvel began doing Big Events that crossed over nineteen or twenty different annuals, and … Continue reading

Scream Park (2012)

Scream Park banner

I’m going to start off with a question: Does labeling your film as an “homage” or as a “throwback to 80s slasher films” give the filmmaker the right to be completely unoriginal and uninspiring? It seems for writer-director Cary Hill it does. Some filmmakers seem to use the “homage” gimmick to save their asses. To … Continue reading

Anchor Bay Picks Up The Dead 2: India

The Dead 2 banner

I admit it: I wasn’t blown away by 2010′s THE DEAD. This film was getting rave reviews from both non-horror and horror fans alike. The film was written and directed by Howard J. Ford and Jonathan Ford and was filmed entirely in Africa. In the end I did recommend THE DEAD but cautiously warned people that the … Continue reading

Daddy’s Little Girl (2012)

Daddys Little Girl banner2

The ‘horror-revenge’ genre is a tough one to pull off successfully mainly because the devil is in the details. The writer of the film needs to have fleshed out characters that the viewer will care about (and hate) and the director needs to avoid the pitfalls of having his/her film fall into the realm of … Continue reading

Call of Cthulhu (2005)

If you lived in New York City, you might be familiar with Channel 7, WABC-TV. And if you lived there in the 60s or 70s, you might remember the 4:30 Movie, when they would, well, show movies. At 4:30. Hence the name. What made them special for me was that they would often do themed … Continue reading

Frankenhooker (1990)

Frankenhooker banner

“Wanna date? Going out? Looking for some action? Horror filmmaker Frank Henenlotter is one of the few directors who has been able to capture the sleaze and depravity of the lost, bygone 42nd Street/Grindhouse era. Henenlotter is of course the director of 1982s BASKET CASE, 1988s BRAIN DAMAGE, BASKET CASE’s sequels, and 2008s criminally overlooked BAD BIOLOGY. All of … Continue reading

Knights of Badassdom (2014)

KoB Banner

Confession time: I’ve never played Dungeons and Dragons. It wasn’t that I didn’t want to, but I was a kid in the pre-Internet days so never knew who played it in my neighbourhood, and the neighbours’ kids were so straight-laced and vanilla they’d make fun of guys who had hair long enough to touch their … Continue reading

Dysmorphia (2012) & Split (2014): 2 Short Films by Andy Stewart

Split banner

If you need proof that an effective, creepy, squirm-inducing short horror film doesn’t need a huge, Hollywood budget then you need not look any further than the films of Andy Stewart. Andy passed along two of his short films, DYSMORPHIA and SPLIT, a while back and to say I was blown away is an understatement. … Continue reading

Army of the Damned (2013)

AoTD Banner

In the weeks since my last contribution to Anythinghorror, there have been some significant changes to your Uncle Deggsy’s lifestyle. The place where I worked for over a decade fired me because I posted a harmless joke on Facebook about some of my company’s customers, a joke my manager, who had her sense of humour … Continue reading

Frequent reader and fan of AnythingHorror.com, Brandon Engel, felt it was time to look back on the classic film, AN AMERICAN WEREWOLF IN LONDON. Being a huge fan of that film myself, who was I to refuse. Enjoy!! —– How fitting that there’s a full moon out tonight! It’s been 32nd years since the U.S. release … Continue reading
