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 [...]
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 [...]
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.

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 [...]
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, [...]
Dead West Review
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 [...]
