Women in Cellblock 9 Review

Women in Cellblock 9 | Repulsive Reviews | Horror Movies

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.

The Creeps Review

The Creeps | Repulsive Reviews | Horror Movies

It’s no secret, at this point, that one of my biggest guilty pleasures is watching the films of Charles Band and his Full Moon imprint. While they aren’t the best films in the genre, by any means, they do manage to be highly entertaining every single time I press play. The most recent Full Moon feature I can cross off my watch list is the 1997 Charles Band-directed The Creeps.

Dr. Winston Berber (Bill Moynihan, Double Trouble) has [...]

99 Women Review

99 Women | Repulsive Reviews | Horror Movies

There are various types of exploitation films; Over the years, I’ve come across nunsploitation, blaxploitation, nazisploitation, even dwarfsploitation (see The Sinful Dwarf). One of the oldest and most popular amongst fans, however, seems to be women in prison films. Numerous filmmakers have entries in the sub-genre, but the king of all exploitation seems to be unanimously voted as the prolific Jess Franco. The film that I am referring to, this time around, is his 1969 production of 99 Women [...]

It’s the Devil

Justice League Dark Review

Justice League Dark | Repulsive Reviews | Horror Movies

Guys, I have some BREAKING NEWS… I like to watch things other than horror films! Okay, okay, I don’t need to be so obnoxious about it, but you’d be surprised at how many times I’ve gotten flack for reviewing things other than straight up horror flicks on this site.  I’ve probably lost regular readers because of my reviews of No Holds Barred and Son of Batman, but quite frankly, I do this for myself, because it’s fun, and because [...]

Tombs are for the Dead

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.

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, [...]

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 [...]
