Tusk Guest Review
Funny. Gory. The most disturbing thing I’ve ever seen. Funnyman Kevin Smith directs the horror movie Tusk, based on a strange Craigslist ad he saw a few years back. It has Smith’s usual witty humor along with moments that made my jaw drop and my face cringe. It is very dialogue-heavy, as are many Kevin Smith movies, with great camerawork and amazing special effects makeup on Justin Long.
After seeing the movie and discussing it with people, something that [...]
The Babadook Guest Review
The 2005 short film, “Monster,” gets a full treatment and Jennifer Kent (director and writer) couldn’t have unleashed it at a better time, daring to stray from the canon possession tale of the slew of spooky, ghostly features (more Paranormal Activities, Oculus, The Conjuring spin-offs, etc.) Already the winner of several awards (AACTA, Australian Academy of Cinema and Television Arts Award), there is no excuse to deny The Babadook. It will only make it stronger.

A Serbian Film Guest Review
I have seen a myriad of unspeakable films. However, the 2010 movie, A Serbian Film makes Cannibal Holocaust, The Human Centipede 1 and 2, Traces of Death (yes, Traces not Faces), and the I Spit on Your Grave series look like a walk in the park.
I had never heard of this movie until a friend brought it to my attention. With piqued curiosity, I got my best movie guy on the mission of getting this movie for [...]
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 [...]
Devil's Due Guest Review
I wish that I could say you need a strong stomach to see Devil’s Due because it’s so disgusting and cringe-worthy that you need to leave the room before you get sick, but sadly, this is not the case. In fact, the reason you may need to look away before your popcorn repeats on you is because of the excessive and unnecessary shakiness of the handheld cameras that this found footage film consists of. There should be a warning beforehand [...]
