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

President Wolfman (2012)

Wolfman banner

THIS is what happens when you let your guard down, even if only for a second. When I first read the description for PRESIDENT WOLFMAN I thought it sounded like it was going to be a fun, silly, exploitation film full of gore and titties. I couldn’t have been more wrong. In fact, I was so … Continue reading

She (2014)

She banner1

As in most genres, the horror genre can be roughly divided into those filmmakers who just want to make a kickass horror film and those who want to make a horror film that’s both kickass and one which has a message, whether it be a social or political commentary/metaphor. When a filmmaker makes a horror film … Continue reading

Bigfoot Wars (2014)

Bigfoot Wars banner

Wow!! What the fuck did I just watch?? I’m so completely gobsmacked by what I just saw that I’m almost at a loss for words. Almost. I was really looking forward to seeing BIGFOOT WARS, which is based on the novel BIGFOOT WAR by Eric S. Brown. First a little something about Brown’s novels. To … Continue reading

Z Nation (2014)

ZN Banner

There’s a food truck on a particular road on the route I take going to work. It’s a simple, basic set-up, it’s an ordinary guy running things, not a franchise, And there’s a small rickety table and two chairs set up beside it. And the food? Sausages, bacon, eggs in various greasy combinations, shoved into … Continue reading
