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 [...]

Henry: Portrait of a Serial Killer Review

Henry: Portrait of a Serial Killer | Repulsive Reviews | Horror Movies

In my recent review of Don Coscarelli’s Phantasm, I made mention of the fact that I couldn’t quite comprehend what all of the fuss over the film was really about. By the end of my second viewing, I had more of a grasp on it, but still wasn’t quite there. Another film that had the same effect on me upon my first viewing was John McNaughton’s 1986 film, Henry: Portrait of a Serial Killer. This second viewing, however, [...]

Death Race 2050 Review

Death Race 2050 | Repulsive Reviews | Horror Movies

A few days ago, I made it a point to watch the Roger Corman-produced, Paul Bartel-directed Death Race 2000. It was quite different from I had built up in my mind, but pretty enjoyable, nonetheless. The reason I wanted to watch the ’75 flick was really to prepare myself for what I thought was a sequel that had just been released.  It turns out G.J. Echternkamp’s Death Race 2050 isn’t a sequel, but instead a brand new re-imagining of [...]

Train to Busan Review

Train to Busan | Repulsive Reviews | Horror Movies

There were a ton of horror films released in 2016. Like every year, there are of course, the good, the bad, and the ugly. I wish I could say I’ve seen them all, but we all know that this is close to impossible with real life getting in the way of movie watching. There were, however, a few last-minute releases that were making waves amongst horror fans that I knew I just had to see sooner rather than later. One [...]
