The Zombie and the Coed Stoner (2014)

CatZS0

A few years ago, I was a member of a terrific improvisational comedy group called Comedysportz. Established in America (Manchester, England, has the only non-US team, and I was the token Yank), it consists of performers competing against each other in family-friendly, Whose Line Is It Anyway-style games based on suggestions from the audience (“You’re … 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

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

Return of the Living Dead Part II (1988)

Return-of-the-Living-Dead-pt-II

(This is the next in a series of reviews of movies from the 70s and 80s, part of a small collection of horror and science fiction movies on videotape that I bought at a flea market before Christmas, some of which I haven’t seen since they first came out) RETURN OF THE LIVING DEAD PART … Continue reading

Zombie Night (2013)

ZN Banner 3

“Audiences don’t know somebody sits down and writes a picture.  They think the actors make it up as they go along.” -Sunset Boulevard (1950) It would certainly explain movies like ZOMBIE NIGHT. I speak not from the vantage point of a failed writer not having received the acclaim and recognition I think writers deserve. I have had six … Continue reading

Dead Walkers: Rise of the 4th Reich (2013)

dead-walkers-banner

Damnit!! He got me again. My old buddy Philip Gardiner cranked out another shitty horror flick and I wasn’t paying attention and I watched it. I knew five seconds into this one that it was a Gardiner flick. It has all the “Gardiner Stamps” we’ve come to love: Overly stylized shots, absolutely no plot to … Continue reading

World War Z (2013)

WWZ-banner

We’ve all read the stories about what a disaster this film was during production.  Going over budget (waaaaay over budget), script problems, pacing issues, etc.  But now that the film is in theaters there’s only one thing that matters:  Is WORLD WAR Z a good film?  My curiosity got the best of me and even … Continue reading

2 Zombie Shorts: Day 9 (2013) & Flesh Eaters: A Love Story (2012)

Zombie Shorts

This past Saturday was a rare occasion for me. My wife is out of town for work and my kids were sleeping over their friends’ houses. I was all alone and have the TV all to myself. Then I realized it’s been a really long time since I watched any horror shorts and it just … Continue reading

zwlogo_18-jan-13_Banner_1024

Have you been on a zombie walk, or watched one? Last October I was lucky to have witnessed what is now an annual event, the Manchester Zombie Walk, where a thousand people assembled to shamble and moan and rattle chains through the city centre, and all to help raise money for a number of charities … Continue reading
