This year has been a rather somber one for horror fans. We’ve lost a lot of influential contributors to the genre including the great filmmaker, George A. Romero. Now, this isn’t a review about a film from the man who perhaps singlehandedly created the zombie sub-genre, but it does have some very deep ties to him and his early filmmaking days. Close friends and repeat collaborators of Romero’s made a little known film in the late 70’s that, hopefully, until [...]
With Halloween right around the corner, I am trying my damnedest to get back into the role of ‘horror film critic.’ While last week I reviewed a recent Hollywood production (see The Mummy), I decided to visit the other side of the spectrum with a low-budget indie flick this week. Was Bev Land’s Lycan worth both my time and yours? Read on to find out…
A group of students are given an assignment to work together and rediscover a [...]
The Mummy Review
I have always been a huge fan and supporter of two or more characters from different mythologies unexpectedly coming together and co-inhabiting a common universe. This is why, even if it’s not the greatest film, I am a fan of Freddy vs. Jason; even more so, why I am a huge fan of the entire Marvel Cinematic Universe (different genre, I know). Needless to say, I was extremely excited to hear news of another possible attempt to do this [...]

The Stylist Review
Hey guys… remember me? I know, I know. I’ve been m.i.a for quite a while now, but what better time to come back to all of you fine folks than… a random Thursday evening…? Anyway, time and day of the week aside, I am indeed back with another horror review and this time I am extremely excited. Why, you ask? Well, because I finally have, in my hot little hands, a copy of Jill “Sixx” Gevargizian’s “The Stylist.”

Cards of Death Guest Review
Cards of Death has a very interesting existence and story. Written by, directed by, and starring Will MacMillan (The Crazies, Christmas Evil), the film was released in 1986 via a limited edition VHS run in Japan. After this, the film was considered lost for 28 years until Bleeding Skull Video got their hands on a copy and decided to re-release the film in America, again via a limited edition VHS run.
The plot for Cards of Death [...]
The Voices Review
Greetings, my excellent friends. EvildeadInks has returned to review another horror gem. This bad boy also balances with some dark comedy; Tonight we talk The Voices with Ryan Reynolds.
This is a very colorful movie that features Ryan being… well, Ryan with a dark twist. The twist being Ryan has a problem with reality and what’s in his head. The man is disturbed and needs meds to keep the crazy down. He works a factory job, just a regular dude. [...]
According to some studies, five to seven percent of the world population suffers from claustrophobia, or the fear of tight, confided spaces. That number may not seem very high, but I’m sure you or someone you know suffers from this fear. I’d like to think I’d do okay in small spaces, if need be, but I also admit that I do not want to find out anytime soon. Imagine being trapped in tight quarters for an undetermined amount of time.
