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 [...]

Friday the 13th: The Game | Repulsive Reviews | Horror Movies

Make them remember what fear tastes like, Jason! Make them suffer! We are a few months away from the official release of Friday the 13th: The Game on your home gaming consoles. The beta was released several weeks ago and although I didn’t have the chance to play myself, I did watch others play for hours on both YouTube and Twitch.

The makers of this game are by far the most faithful contributors to a franchise product. So much [...]

Gremlins 2: The New Batch Video Review

Gremlins 2: The New Batch | Repulsive Reviews | Horror Movies

It’s a takeover tonight, as Jock Lindsey hijacks Rottin’ Roger’s video room and does a brand new video review of his own! His movie of choice…? Joe Dante’s 1990 Gremlins sequel, Gremlins 2: The New Batch.

More comedic than the original 1984 flick, Gremlins 2 has, well, a whole new batch of Gremlins — the smart one, the spider Gremlin, the eerily sexy female Gremlin, etc. Which one is Jock’s favorite and what is his final Repulsive Rating?  Click [...]

Amityville: It's About Time Review

Amityville 1992: It's About Time | Repulsive Reviews | Horror Movies

Time to hit the nostalgia sweet spot for me once again with this one.  The Amityville series is a unique one, to say the least, and this movie is no exception. Amityville 1992, another film I owned on VHS, back in the day, right before we moved towns and didn’t have cable or a close video store, so we snagged as much new cinema as we could before the move. This was one of those gems and it holds [...]

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, [...]

A Nightmare on Elm Street 2 Review

A Nightmare on Elm Street 2 | Repulsive Reviews | Horror Movies

Ah, to be the new kid in school, as if that wasn’t a nightmare already.  Today I review part two of my favorite series of horror, A Nightmare on Elm Street. I chose part two to start because, well, it widely goes overlooked.

I am the biggest fan of the first, four, five, and six are a different beast, and seven is an island all its own. I use to own the original three on a VHS tape and [...]

Something’s Coming

10 Cloverfield Lane Guest Review

10 Cloverfield Lane | Repulsive Reviews | Horror Movies

Tight spaces, frogs, and being kidnapped. Those are the things that encompass what I fear the most. However, aside from the occasional tight car ride or near-fatal bullfrog encounter, those fears are seldom reached. My comfort zone was all but obliterated the night I watched 10 Cloverfield Lane.

I consider myself a sensible man, when it comes to fictitious media. I’ve always been able to remind myself what I am viewing is not real, and continue viewing it without [...]
