Where’s Your Cape, Drac?

Effects Review

Effects | Repulsive Reviews | Horror Movies

This year has been a rather somber one for horror fans. We’ve lost a lot of influential contributors to the genre including the great filmmaker, George A. Romero. Now, this isn’t a review about a film from the man who perhaps singlehandedly created the zombie sub-genre, but it does have some very deep ties to him and his early filmmaking days.  Close friends and repeat collaborators of Romero’s made a little known film in the late 70’s that, hopefully, until [...]

That’s My Kinda Nasty

Lycan Review

Lycan | Repulsive Reviews | Horror Movies

With Halloween right around the corner, I am trying my damnedest to get back into the role of ‘horror film critic.’ While last week I reviewed a recent Hollywood production (see The Mummy), I decided to visit the other side of the spectrum with a low-budget indie flick this week.  Was Bev Land’s Lycan worth both my time and yours? Read on to find out…

This is Not a Tomb

The Mummy Review

The Mummy | Repulsive Reviews | Horror Movies

I have always been a huge fan and supporter of two or more characters from different mythologies unexpectedly coming together and co-inhabiting a common universe.  This is why, even if it’s not the greatest film, I am a fan of Freddy vs. Jason; even more so, why I am a huge fan of the entire Marvel Cinematic Universe (different genre, I know).  Needless to say, I was extremely excited to hear news of another possible attempt to do this [...]

I Just Wanna Try it On

The Stylist Review

The Stylist | Repulsive Reviews | Horror Movies

Hey guys… remember me?  I know, I know.  I’ve been m.i.a for quite a while now, but what better time to come back to all of you fine folks than… a random Thursday evening…?  Anyway, time and day of the week aside, I am indeed back with another horror review and this time I am extremely excited. Why, you ask? Well, because I finally have, in my hot little hands, a copy of Jill “Sixx” Gevargizian’s “The Stylist.”

Wait in a Safe Place

Tunnel Review

Tunnel | Repulsive Reviews | Horror Movies

According to some studies, five to seven percent of the world population suffers from claustrophobia, or the fear of tight, confided spaces. That number may not seem very high, but I’m sure you or someone you know suffers from this fear. I’d like to think I’d do okay in small spaces, if need be, but I also admit that I do not want to find out anytime soon. Imagine being trapped in tight quarters for an undetermined amount of time.  [...]

Are You Afraid of Death?

Dark Waters Review

Dark Waters | Repulsive Reviews | Horror Movies

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 Kid Needs His Mother

Pig Pen Review

Pig Pen | Repulsive Reviews | Horror Movies

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 [...]

Spooky… Ain’t It?

Pulse Review

Pulse | Repulsive Reviews | Horror Movies

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.
