The Texas Chainsaw Massacre 2 Review
In 1986, Tobe Hooper, the mastermind behind 1974’s classic, The Texas Chainsaw Massacre set out to do something nobody ever expected — He set out to make a sequel to a movie that in no way could ever have a sequel. A movie like The Texas Chainsaw Massacre really could never have a direct sequel, due to the type of film it is. It was a masterpiece, a horror film that opened up like a real life crime story. A [...]
Silent Night Mini-Review
What is not to love about Christmas movies? Especially Christmas movies that fall into the “slasher” category. There are countless slasher-themed holiday movies, with the late 70’s and early 80’s bringing some of the best. The best known holiday horror movie would more than likely be Silent Night, Deadly Night, coming at a time when mothers were against anything violent in a Christmas movie. My personal favorite pick would be the Tales From The Crypt episode, “And All Through [...]
From Dusk Till Dawn 3: The Hangmans Daughter Guest Review
The Hangman’s Daughter is a direct-to-DVD horror film from 2000 that serves as a prequel to the 1996 hit, From Dusk Till Dawn, and the lackluster 1999 sequel, From Dusk Till Dawn 2: Texas Blood Money. It stars Michael Parks and Rebecca Gayhart with cameo appearances from Kevin Smith and none other than Danny Trejo…again.
The story opens with an outlaw escaping the noose, with the help of an American female would-be outlaw, and kidnapping the hangman’s sexy [...]
From Dusk Till Dawn 2: Texas Blood Money Guest Review
Remember the first time you saw From Dusk Till Dawn? The first time you saw the “Titty Twister” dive bar? The unforgettable cameos from Salma Hayek and Cheech Marin? The direction from Quentin Tarantino and Robert Rodriguez? Well, forget all that when turning on the 1999, sequel From Dusk Till Dawn 2: Texas Blood Money. Directed by Scott Spiegel and starring Robert Patrick, this movie falls incredibly short of the movie it’s following. It has cameos from Bruce [...]
Texas Chainsaw 3D Guest Review
When I was young, one of my all time favorite things to do was watch horror movies. I remember getting the VHS tape of The Texas Chainsaw Massacre, when I was around 10, and it quickly became a favorite. Cut ahead to today, I am 32 years old, and it is still one of my top three movies, as it is a near perfect classic in my eyes.
I’ve stood by as they made six other movies (two direct [...]
Deadgirl Guest Review
While flicking through the movies on Fearnet the other day, just bored and looking for something to do, I came across a movie from 2008 called Deadgirl, and while I had never heard of it, I was interested. It stars Shiloh Fernandez (Evil Dead) and Noah Segan (Cabin Fever 2: Spring Break) and is directed by two guys I have personally never heard of.
The story starts off slow and never picks up… basically two [...]
Edge of Sanity Guest Review
Everybody knows the tale of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde; it’s a tale that I shouldn’t even have to elaborate on, so I won’t bother boring you with the details that you already know. Instead, I’ll tell you about a small 1989 British horror film directed by Gérard Kikoïne, starring “Psycho’s” own Anthony Perkins as Henry Jekyll and Jack “The Ripper” Hyde. The movie in question is “Edge Of Sanity.”
In this version of the beloved tale, Dr. Jeykll is [...]
Night of the Demons Guest Review
When I was six years old, while many of my peers in class were watching “Garfield,” I was already into horror movies. Some of my favorite movies from the 80’s revolve around demonic possession and one that particularity comes to mind is the 1988 Kevin S. Tenney directed “Night Of The Demons.” This movie also spawned two terrible sequels and an even worse remake, with a sequel to the remake in the planning stages called “Night Of The Demons: After [...]
