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.

Women in Cellblock 9 Review
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.
Three women are apprehended from a fruit truck, taken to [...]
Ghoulies II Review
Welcome, boils and ghouls, to another EvildeadInks movie review. Today, we cover another lost sequel, Ghoulies II!
First off, you don’t need to watch the original to enjoy this film. In fact, if it wasn’t a double feature, I’m not sure I’d even own the original. The only tie between them are the ghoulie creature designs. In Ghoulies II, these nasty little beings are presumably summoned by Satanists and quickly stolen by a priest. After dropping the poor [...]
Death Spa Video Review
If you aren’t excited for Wednesdays by now, you might just be dead! Rottin’ Roger is back with another one of his [in]famous video reviews. This time, he goes into detail about Michael Fischa’s Death Spa.
This supernatural slasher, originally released in 1989, is about, you guessed it, a haunted spa/fitness club. There is tons of nudity and plenty of gore, so you know Roger tells all in his Splatter Facts portion of the video.

The Creeps Review
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 [...]
Nekromantik Video Review
We might be a day late, but better late than never, especially when it comes to another video review from Rottin’ Roger DeMarco. This time, Roger dives into the…um… classic Jorg Buttgereit flick Nekromantik.
Roger gets into the nitty gritty of things with his Splatter Facts, as always. Now, if you know anything about this 1987 German shock film, then you know it’s pretty out there. The subject matter is rather ‘controversial,’ so you can only imagine how entertaining [...]
The Path to Pet Sematary Review
Welcome once again to the show that never ends. Today we talk the doc for Pet Sematary, entitled Unearthed and Untold: The Path to Pet Sematary. First off, I am a sucker all day for in-depth documentary videos on classic horror flicks; I was first in line for Never Sleep Again and Crystal Lake Memories. I consume all I can find and waited with high anticipation for this one.
I love the cover art they chose for [...]
99 Women Review
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 [...]
