Nightmare City director

This is a pretty cool headline!! Tom Savini, the King of Splatter and Gore who essentially gave the good folks at FANGORIA magazine a career, is attached to direct a remake of the 1980 classic zombie flick by Umberto Lenzi, NIGHTMARE CITY. The film is also known as CITY OF THE WALKING DEAD, which shouldn’t be … Continue reading

From Dusk Till Dawn: The Series (2014)


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

Do me a favour, okay True Believers? Don’t tell my lady that my most favourite present this Christmas wasn’t the men’s cologne she got me, it was CRYSTAL LAKE MEMORIES: THE COMPLETE HISTORY OF FRIDAY THE 13TH. (She’s probably guessed it already, though; I’ve only used the cologne once, but I’ve stayed up for the … Continue reading

Cool as Hell (2013)


James Balsamo is back and brings with him his no-holds-barred style of guerrilla-filmmaking that reminds me a lot of the old school Troma flicks from Lloyd Kaufman and Michael Herz (you know, before they had budgets). COOL AS HELL marks Balsamo’s third feature length film and he’s showing no signs of slowing down (he’s already … Continue reading

Red Band Trailer Drops for Balsamo’s Cool As Hell


Indie horror filmmaker James Balsamo is one hard working sonuvabitch!!  He’s been hard at work in post-production on COOL AS HELL, his upcoming film, and there’s no sign of him letting up any time soon (see my previous article on Balsamo here).  COOL AS HELL is written, directed, and stars Balsamo and also stars Tom Savini, … Continue reading

James Balsamo is a busy man.  Balsamo has made two feature-length films in the last two years and it looks as though he has no intentions of slowing down!!  His first film, HACK JOB, was a horror anthology (my review) and covered just about every horror sub-genre you could think of (I think it also … Continue reading

Day of the Dead Review & Retrospective (1985)

Day of the Dead banner

You’re only as good as your last movie, or so Hollywood says (fortunately for Michael Bay, his movies remain consistently loud and stupid, thus sparing him confusion). Of course, this never seems to apply to those who keep green-lighting loud and stupid films. But I’m not here to talk about them. I’m here to talk … Continue reading

Tom Savini & Kane Hodder to Fight Robin Hood: Ghosts of Sherwood

Robin Hood banner

Wow. Just wow. Here’s a movie that takes the classic figure of Robin Hood and turns he and his band of Merry Men into the undead and has them haunting the woods they once protected. The film, ROBIN HOOD: GHOSTS OF SHERWOOD, has all the makings of a SyFy Original … but it’s not!! Yeah; … Continue reading

The Theatre Bizarre (2011)

Theatre Bizarre banner

I thank Scott for alerting me to this indie anthology (most recently in his post here), which made me get this when it became available. As we all know, anthologies are great, in that you can get a variety of stories, some good, some not so good, but even the worst ones don’t usually outstay … Continue reading
