The Dead The Damned and the Darkness (2014)

DDD866434-2

Back in 2011, when Scott reviewed a movie by Rene Perez, THE DEAD AND THE DAMNED (here), he started out by stating that the movie tried hard, but “we all know that good intentions pave the road to that really hot place”. I’ve had the pleasure of viewing Rene Perez’ follow-up, a semi-sequel called THE … Continue reading

Zombie Isle (2014)

ZI10

I had an idea for a story or screenplay once, set in a world where personal karma was a measurable quantity used for practical purposes, so for instance people with bad luck due to them could be prevented from boarding airplanes, and specialists could be hired to inflict controlled calamity on others to prevent worse … Continue reading

Zombeavers (2014)

Banner

Hollywood history is filled with movies whose titles seem to have been chosen by people on heavy medication. Really, if the idea of a title is to attract an audience, then what’s the point of a misleading title? Lars Von Triers’ ANTICHRIST had no devil; it should have been called WILLEM DEFOE GETS HIS BITS … Continue reading

The Matchmaker (2013) & Super Zero (2014)

Shorts 1

It seems as though I get short films in batches over here at AnythingHorror.com. I’ll go months without getting any short films and then suddenly my inbox will be flooded with them. It’s either feast or famine!! Recently I received a bunch of shorts and this is a review of two of them (more reviews … Continue reading

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
