Scream Park (2012)

Scream Park banner

I’m going to start off with a question: Does labeling your film as an “homage” or as a “throwback to 80s slasher films” give the filmmaker the right to be completely unoriginal and uninspiring? It seems for writer-director Cary Hill it does. Some filmmakers seem to use the “homage” gimmick to save their asses. To … Continue reading

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

Daddy’s Little Girl (2012)

Daddys Little Girl banner2

The ‘horror-revenge’ genre is a tough one to pull off successfully mainly because the devil is in the details. The writer of the film needs to have fleshed out characters that the viewer will care about (and hate) and the director needs to avoid the pitfalls of having his/her film fall into the realm of … Continue reading

Call of Cthulhu (2005)

If you lived in New York City, you might be familiar with Channel 7, WABC-TV. And if you lived there in the 60s or 70s, you might remember the 4:30 Movie, when they would, well, show movies. At 4:30. Hence the name. What made them special for me was that they would often do themed … Continue reading

Friday banner

We all have to accept that FRIDAY THE 13TH is getting another reboot. I guess it needs it after the horrible fucking 2009 remake. Paramount and Platinum Dunes have been talking about a reboot for a little over a year now and previously put a second FRIDAY THE !#TH film on hold. But I guess … Continue reading

Frankenhooker (1990)

“Wanna date? Going out? Looking for some action? Horror filmmaker Frank Henenlotter is one of the few directors who has been able to capture the sleaze and depravity of the lost, bygone 42nd Street/Grindhouse era. Henenlotter is of course the director of 1982s BASKET CASE, 1988s BRAIN DAMAGE, BASKET CASE’s sequels, and 2008s criminally overlooked BAD BIOLOGY. All of … Continue reading

From Dusk Till Dawn: The Series (2014)

FromDuskTillDawn_Hero_700x394

The best part about having a puppy (or a child I suppose, though I bet most children don’t smell like popcorn) is that you get to introduce her to things that you love – pizza, pretzels, Doctor Who, John Carpenter – and to warn her about things she should avoid – vampire movies, mainly. Not … Continue reading
