As diehard horror fans dedicated to diving deeper into the genre, we have all seen films from the likes of Dario Argento and Mario Bava, films that deliver frights in more ways than just hacking and slashing. These films were present prominently in the 70’s and 80’s, but are you aware that there were other filmmakers creating beautifully frightening films akin to those of the masters, well into the 90’s? Yeah… me either! One of these films is Mariano Baino’s [...]

A Nightmare on Elm Street 3: Dream Warriors Review
Greetings, my excellent friends! EvildeadInks is back with my newest review from my fav franchise – A Nightmare on Elm Street. Today, we cover the most popular in the series, Dream Warriors. Released in 1987, this put the series back on track after part two that got mixed reviews… you know I love part two, but lets not get off topic. ‘Back on track’ meaning the rules of the series are enforced more correctly and brings back characters [...]
Pig Pen Review
By now, everyone knows how much I enjoy revenge flicks. I’ve covered a countless number of them and am always pleased at how filmmakers continue to push the sub-genre into different directions. There have been the classic rape/revenge flicks and even those taken to supernatural levels, but I don’t believe there have been any as gritty or realistic as Jason M. Koch’s Pig Pen.
Zack (Lucas Koch), who also goes by “Pig Pen” by bullies at school, lives with [...]
Bill and Ted's Bogus Journey Review
Greetings, my excellent friends. EvildeadInks here with another outside the box review for ya. Today, I tackle a comedy with some elements of creepy — Bill and Ted’s Bogus Journey… of the original title, Bill and Ted Go to Hell… that’s a metal title, huh?
We pick up with Bill and Ted post-high school, their living on their own and still trying to get the band Wyld Stallions off the ground. I love how messy their place is [...]
Five Nights at Freddy's Video Game Review
Greetings, my excellent friends. Today we talk about the phenomenon of the Five Nights at Freddy’s franchise. No, wait. Before you back out the door and say I don’t need to hear about this stuff, I felt it needed a look. Here is my reasoning — first of all, being a dad, I have had no choice but to hear about this game from my kiddos. What I found fascinating and funny at the same time is the lore that [...]
What is it that determines whether a film is deserving of a re-mastered re-release? Plenty of companies gain the rights to cult classics that fans long for in mighty Blu-ray HD quality or even 4k, more recently. While others seem to waste time on movies that don’t have any business living past their VHS-only existence. Where does the recent release of Paul Golding’s Pulse fall on this spectrum of horror gems? Read on and find out.
On vacation from school, [...]
Women in Cellblock 9 Review
My recent viewing of Jess Franco’s 99 Women was a true eye-opener for me. It was the one film of his I was waiting for, it proved to me that the man had depth and truly was a great filmmaker. Even for a women in prison film, it had artistic vision and substance. Unfortunately, I cannot say the same for another of his sexploitation ventures, Women in Cellblock 9.
Three women are apprehended from a fruit truck, taken to [...]
Ghoulies II Review
Welcome, boils and ghouls, to another EvildeadInks movie review. Today, we cover another lost sequel, Ghoulies II!
First off, you don’t need to watch the original to enjoy this film. In fact, if it wasn’t a double feature, I’m not sure I’d even own the original. The only tie between them are the ghoulie creature designs. In Ghoulies II, these nasty little beings are presumably summoned by Satanists and quickly stolen by a priest. After dropping the poor [...]
