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 [...]
The Burning Video Review
Roger is back and he’s talking about another slasher! That’s right, folks. It’s Wednesday and Rottin’ Roger has some stuff to tell you about Tony Maylam’s The Burning.
Released in 1981, just when the slasher sub-genre was really taking off, The Burning is similar in plot to most — a group of campers are being stalked by a disfigured murderer who kills them off, one by one. Doesn’t sound too interesting, right? WRONG! Listen to Roger, as he tells [...]
Justice League Dark Review
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… [...]
