It’s in the Blood Now Available on Amazon & iTunes!!

Its In The Blood banner

Hopefully by now you all know that I take my horror movies pretty seriously.  Sure I love the occasional horror-comedy as much as the next guy, but when it comes to the scares, I get downright serious.  If you remember, the first film I screened at the 2012 Texas Frightmare Weekend was IT’S IN THE … Continue reading

Bloody Bloody Bible Camp (2011)

BLOODY BLOODY banner

When the tag line of a horror film reads, “Heaven is for everyone. Except you,” you know you’re dealing with something not meant to be taken too seriously. BLOODY BLOODY BIBLE CAMP is a slasher-throwback to the heyday of the slasher film, and director Vito Trabucco (who also wrote the script along with Shelby McIntyre … Continue reading

6 Short Horror Films: Texas Frightmare Weekend 2012

!!!TFW

Saturday afternoon at this year’s Texas Frightmare Weekend there was a screening of six short horror films (there was supposed to be seven, but we’ll get to this below).  Whoever chose the shorts did a nice job of gathering up some diverse films.  There’s an experimental flick, a horror-comedy, two that take place in an … Continue reading

Father’s Day (2011)

Fathers Day banner

What is it with Canada’s love affair with the good old exploitation/grindhouse flicks of yesteryear? Don’t get me wrong; I’m not condemning our friends to the North. I think you all know me well enough by now that I absolutely adore the grindhouse genre that sprung up in New York City’s 42nd Street district. Sleazy … Continue reading

Jacob (2011)

Jacob1

Here’s a film I’ve been waiting to see since I first heard about it at the 2011 Texas Frightmare Weekend. So when I saw JACOB made the line-up of screeners at this year’s TFW, it pretty much shot to the top of my “must-see” list. JACOB is written, directed, and stars Larry Wade Carrell, a … Continue reading

The Victim (2011)

The Victim banner

THE VICTIM is the solo directorial debut from genre actor, Michael Biehn (in 2010 he co-directed THE BLOOD BOND with Anthony Szeto). I’ve posted a few articles about the progress of this film over the last year, and then suddenly it went silent. So I was pretty happy that THE VICTIM was being screened at … Continue reading

Huff (2012)

Huff banner

Here’s one that really surprised me. I hadn’t heard anything about this one until the final screening schedule came out for the 2012 Texas Frightmare Weekend line up. Besides the basic plot, HUFF was described as a modern day retelling of the Three Little Pigs. Hhmmm. Okay. Sounds gimmicky; very gimmicky. Boy was I wrong. … Continue reading

Abraham Lincoln vs. Zombies (2012)

Lincoln vs Zombies banner

If your first thought here is, “I think the title is actually ABRAHAM LINCOLN: VAMPIRE HUNTER,” well you’re wrong. If you’re now thinking, “Aahhh; it’s a mockbuster … we must be dealing with The Asylum,” well then you hit the nail square on the head. ABRAHAM LINCOLN VS. ZOMBIES is indeed a ‘mockbuster’ (a lower-budgeted … Continue reading

Zombie Ass: Toilet of the Dead (2011)

Zombie-Ass-banner

Aahhh yes … just read that title again!!  The Texas Frightmare Weekend 2012 dug deep for this one (hee hee)!!  This was listed on the program as a “Secret Screening” due to it not being picked up yet for North American distribution.  The title, ZOMBIE ASS: TOILET OF THE DEAD, captures exactly what this film … Continue reading

Texas Frightmare Weekend 2012: Q & A with The Italian Masters, Deodato, Bava, & Stivaletti

Italian banner

If nothing else occurred at this year’s Texas Frightmare Weekend except this Q & A, I would’ve been extremely satisfied and fulfilled. I’m talking about the Q & A with three of the Masters of Italian Horror Movies: Ruggero Deodato, Lamberto Bava, and Sergio Stivaletti. The only thing that could’ve made this panel better is … Continue reading
