Avenged (2015)

Avenged banner

I’m gonna tell you right from the get-go that I wasn’t expecting much from AVENGED (formerly titled SAVAGED). Yes the trailer was well done but at the end of the day it just looked like another rape-revenge flick in the I SPIT ON YOUR GRAVE vein. But damnit if I wasn’t wrong (and very glad … Continue reading

SUBURBAN GOTHIC (2014)

title

My review of filmmaker Ricky Bates’ first movie, EXCISION, was one of my earliest, and looking back at it, I found myself wondering two things: 1) why didn’t Scott kick me out of Anythinghorror for my verbosity and pomposity? and 2) I wonder what Ricky Bates has come up with to follow this? Well, the … Continue reading

Pernicious (2015)

Pernicious banner

I’m starting to think indie horror filmmaker James Cullen Bressack has either cloned himself or sleeps about three hours a month. Since exploding on the scene with his debut feature film, MY PURE JOY, Bressack hasn’t rested at all. Since 2011 Bressack has made four short films, directed segments in two different anthologies, directed seven … Continue reading

The Pyramid Comes to Blu-ray with an Extended Ending

The Pyramid banner

THE PYRAMID snuck into the end of 2014, which I thought was odd, to some mixed reviews. If you missed this one you’ll now get the chance to judge for yourself. THE PYRAMID is directed by Grégory Levasseur, written by Daniel Meersand and Nick Simon, and stars Ashley Hinshaw, James Buckley, Denis O’Hare, Christa Nicola, Faycal Attougui, and Philip Shelley. Check out the Blu-ray specs … Continue reading

The Burning Dead (2015)

The Burning Dead banner

When I first came across this title I was soooo hoping it meant that humans were being turned into zombies due to a really bad case of gonorrhea!! Nope [cue sad music]. Even though THE BURNING DEAD (formerly titled “Volcano Zombies”) isn’t about a flaming case of the clap it’s a really fun zombie flick that … Continue reading

The Treehouse (2014)

TH9

If I had to sum this movie up in three words, it’d be “Slow Burn Disappointment”. When I review a movie, sometimes I will look up reviews in places like IMDb and Metacritic, just to get a feel of how other people feel. Not that it would affect my own opinion, but it sometimes gives … Continue reading

Wyrmwood: Road of the Dead (2014)

Wyrmwood banner

This is the kind of zombie film I live for!! WYRMWOOD: ROAD OF THE DEAD is exactly what the title teases. It’s a zombie film strained through a MAD MAX filter and it completely works. There’s no social commentary, the zombies aren’t metaphors for something else, and there’s no whiney, self-reflective characters. What we get … Continue reading

NEW HORROR DVD & BLU-RAY RELEASES FOR THE WEEK OF FEB. 22, 2015

!!!!New Release Banner99

Not a whole bunch of new releases this week but there’s some true classics coming out!! Let’s get to it!! A CANDLE FOR THE DEVIL (Remastered Edition) (1970) Italian-made shocker chronicles the lives of two sisters–one a strong-willed religious fanatic, the other meek and fearful–as they run a small Spanish inn. When the more forceful … Continue reading

BUDDY HUTCHINS (2015)

BH100

In one of those Batman graphic novels, the exact title escapes me, the Joker tries to show Batman or Commissioner Gordon or someone how all it takes to turn a decent, ordinary guy into someone as batshit crazy as The Joker is if he has One Bad Day, presumably to lend some justification to his … Continue reading
