ABCs of Death 2 (2014)

The ABCs of Death2 banner

The horror anthology is a staple in the genre and dominated the landscape in the 1960s and 1970s. Some of my favorites are 1945s DEAD OF NIGHT, 1963s BLACK SABBATH, 1965s DR. TERROR’S HOUSE OF HORRORS, 1971s THE HOUSE THAT DRIPPED BLOOD, 1972s TALES FROM THE CRYPT and ASYLUM, and 1975s TRILOGY OF TERROR, but this … Continue reading

See No Evil 2 (2014)

See No Evil 2 banner

In 2006 the slasher film SEE NO EVIL produced by WWE (World Wrestling Entertainment) and distributed by Lionsgate hit screens in the U.S. On an estimated budget of $8mil, the film opened to a meager $4.5mil and went onto to earn a worldwide gross of around $18.5mil. Not exactly a Cinderella story, but not a failure … Continue reading

Wrong Turn 6: Last Resort (2014)

Wrong Turn 6 banner

I think when it comes right down to it, everyone’s gotta have a guilty pleasure. What’s a guilty pleasure? I look at it as something we love even though we know it’s bad for us or at the very least we know it doesn’t do anything positive for us. It doesn’t matter what your guilty … Continue reading

Cabin Fever: Patient Zero (2014)

Cabin Fever 3 banner

In 2002 Eli Roth gave horror fans something to stand up and cheer about. Instead of the same tired slashers killing the same tired twenty-somethings in the same tired settings, Roth gave us a new kind of killer:  The flesh-eating disease. Still confusing to me today the horror community was split down the middle about … Continue reading

Jodorowsky’s Dune (2013)

Banner

Of all the words of tongue and pen, the saddest are these: ‘It might have been’. Except for the plans to have Shia LeBeouf take over the Indiana Jones franchise getting dropped. That’s not sad, that’s proof of a higher power forestalling the Apocalypse. Hollywood history tells of a number of films that for various … Continue reading

Horns (2014)

Banner

Now, this is one I went into almost completely ignorant of the movie and its content. All I know was that it starred Daniel “What movie character is he famous for again?” Radcliffe, and that it was about a guy who grew horns. Something in my mind associated this with being some sort of variation … Continue reading

Snake with a Human Tail (2014)

Snake banner

If you needed any proof that the indie horror scene is the future of the genre, you need not look any further than filmmaker Spencer Gray’s short film, SNAKE WITH A HUMAN TAIL. SNAKE may mark Gray’s directorial debut, but you can feel the passion and heart that went into this project. For almost the … Continue reading

The Omega Man (1971)

Banner

This is another birthday gift, a DVD of one of my favourite films of all time. I remember seeing this on TV as a boy, on the 4:30 Movie on ABC (Channel 7 in the New York area), the place where I was introduced to Toho’s GODZILLA movies, the PLANET OF THE APES series, and … Continue reading

Rabid (1977)

Rabid banner

This is the raw, gruesome, and disturbing Cronenberg I love. RABID is one of David Cronenberg’s body horror masterpieces (along with SHIVERS, THE BROOD, VIDEODROME, and THE FLY). Fans of both David Cronenberg and Anything Horror will be familiar with the sub-genre in horror known as “body horror.” In this sub-genre the human body itself … Continue reading

More Brains! A Return to the Living Dead (2011)

Banner 3

Okay, so it’s my birthday. I don’t like celebrating them, except that I suppose you celebrate the fact that you haven’t died yet, especially of something embarrassing. Burgomaster Hans Steininger died in 1567 when he broke his neck tripping over his own 4.5 foot long beard. Paul G Thomas, the co-owner of a textile company, … Continue reading
