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 [...]

The Mutilator Video Review
Guys, it’s Wednesday… It’s freakin’ Wednesday! That can only mean one thing — Rottin’ Roger is back with another one of his infamous video reviews! This time around, Rog tackles the 1984 slasher flick, The Mutilator, written and directed by Buddy Cooper.
Also known as Fall Break, this slasher includes all of the tropes of the era and of course, Roger breaks everything down for you with his Splatter Facts. How does The Mutilator stack up against the [...]
Manhattan Baby Review
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.
While on vacation in [...]
EvildeadInks back again with another blast from the past and, yes, the mid 90’s are further back than some of us want to believe. Today, I tackle another video store find that doesn’t get a lot of love, Brainscan.
This bad boy features a still fresh-faced Eddie Furlong, right off the heels of T2. He plays the character Michael who has a taste for horror and by far the most amazing electronic setup in his room ever put [...]
Slaughterhouse Video Review
Another week has gone by, so of course, that means Rottin’ Roger is back with another one of his gore-tastic video reviews! What is it this week, you ask? Well, Roger has another slasher on the chopping block, this time around, with Rick Roessler’s Slaughterhouse.
This 1987 slasher flick contains many, if not all, of the tropes we’ve grown to love from our favorite sub-genre — a pretty high body-count, some gnarly kills, and a menacing antagonist, Buddy Bacon… [...]
Stake Land II Review
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 [...]
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, [...]
Evil Laugh Video Review
Just like every Wednesday, Rottin’ Roger DeMarco is back with another one of his video reviews! This time around, he takes a look at the 1986 slasher flick, Evil Laugh.
Directed by Dominick Brascia (Joey from Friday the 13th: A New Beginning), Evil Laugh blended horror and self-aware comedic elements, 20 years before films like Scream mastered the art.
Roger has tons of insight and behind-the-scenes tidbits about this film that you’re going to want to hear. He [...]
