Manhattan Baby Review

Manhattan Baby | Repulsive Reviews | Horror Movies

Mythological tales exist from almost every culture you can think of — Babylonian, Greek, Roman, Egyptian, etc. They are rich in culture and tell a great deal about the history of the people whom created such stories. There is plenty of material out there and one director who was intelligent and imaginative enough to seize the opportunity to make a film about some of the mythos was Lucio Fulci with his 1982 production, Manhattan Baby.

While on vacation in [...]

Don’t You Have Anything Good?

Brainscan Review

Brainscan | Repulsive Reviews | Horror Movies

EvildeadInks back again with another blast from the past and, yes, the mid 90’s are further back than some of us want to believe. Today, I tackle another video store find that doesn’t get a lot of love, Brainscan.

This bad boy features a still fresh-faced Eddie Furlong, right off the heels of T2. He plays the character Michael who has a taste for horror and by far the most amazing electronic setup in his room ever put [...]

There’s a Dance Montage…

Slaughterhouse Video Review

Slaughterhouse | Repulsive Reviews | Horror Movies

Another week has gone by, so of course, that means Rottin’ Roger is back with another one of his gore-tastic video reviews! What is it this week, you ask?  Well, Roger has another slasher on the chopping block, this time around, with Rick Roessler’s Slaughterhouse.

This 1987 slasher flick contains many, if not all, of the tropes we’ve grown to love from our favorite sub-genre — a pretty high body-count, some gnarly kills, and a menacing antagonist, Buddy Bacon… [...]

We Don’t do History

Stake Land II Review

Stake Land II | Repulsive Reviews | Horror Movies

There are times when movies are announced, their release date comes and goes, and you hear nothing about the film at all. No good opinions, no negative criticisms, nothing. Generally, that’s not a good sign. I would just assume that means the movie was nothing special and isn’t worth anyone’s time. Oddly enough, however, that is certainly not the case with Dan Berk and Robert Olsen’s 2016 film, Stake Land II, as it is a great sequel and a [...]

Everybody’s Afraid Sometime

Venom Review

Venom | Repulsive Reviews | Horror Movies

One of my favorite things about the horror genre is the diversity of its antagonists. The killers of our favorite movies come in all shapes and sizes. There are the brooding villains from the slasher films, supernatural entities that haunt and hunt their prey alike. Hell, there are even killer gingerbread men and murdering puppets! However, among all of these, some of my favorite films are those that utilize nature’s various killers. You know, films like Jaws, Shakma, [...]

Evil Laugh Video Review

Evil Laugh | Repulsive Reviews | Horror Movies

Just like every Wednesday, Rottin’ Roger DeMarco is back with another one of his video reviews! This time around, he takes a look at the 1986 slasher flick, Evil Laugh.

Directed by Dominick Brascia (Joey from Friday the 13th: A New Beginning), Evil Laugh blended horror and self-aware comedic elements, 20 years before films like Scream mastered the art.

Roger has tons of insight and behind-the-scenes tidbits about this film that you’re going to want to hear. He [...]

Dessert’s Even Better

Dead West Review

Dead West | Repulsive Reviews | Horror Movies

I guess the saying “don’t judge a book by its cover” can go in either direction. Typically, that adage is used when the proverbial ‘cover’ is deemed negative in some way, but the ‘book’ turns out to be positive. Well, in the horror genre and independent films in general, I would assume, the opposite happens quite often. So is the case with Jeff Ferrell’s Dead West.

A charismatic killer travels from town to town, picking up women and killing [...]
