ABCs of Death 2 Review
I am completely on board with the anthology craze that the horror genre has been seeing the past few years. Hell, it’s produced some pretty great releases. Because every release seems to try to outdo the others floating around out there, filmmakers are getting pretty ambitious. Perhaps this is most evident in the ABCs of Death franchise. I remember being really disappointed with the first film release back in 2012, but I think I have grown to appreciate things differently [...]
Tales From the Crypt Review
I believe it was around Christmas time last year, perhaps in January even, I got my hands on DVD sets of complete seasons of the television show, Tales From the Crypt. I remember seeing episodes I never knew existed and enjoying them for the very first time. One of these great tales was “And All Through the House” about an escaped maniac who was running around in a Santa Claus outfit. Interestingly enough, this same story, taken from the [...]
Creeping Crawling Review
I hate to say it, but I’ve come to expect the worst when watching independent horror films. I usually can’t get past the low-budget cameras, the sub-par acting, and everything else you find in your average indie project. There are, however, some very impressive hidden gems out there in the scene, looking to be discovered. One of these gems is the anthology film, Creeping Crawling, written and directed by Jon Russell Cring and Tracy Nichole Cring.
A pair of [...]
The Perfect House Review
There have been plenty of awesome anthology films in the horror genre over the years. From Creepshow and Body Bags to the more recent Trick ‘r Treat and V/H/S/, most great anthologies bring something new and refreshing to the table. The same can be said for Kris Hulbert and Randy Kent’s 2012 The Perfect House.
A newly married couple are taking a tour of what they hope will be their new dream home. As the overly sexy real [...]
The Twilight Zone: Essential Episodes Review
Horror/sci-fi and non-horror/sci-fi fans alike are all aware of the late 50’s/early 60’s anthology television show, The Twilight Zone. Any time the name is mentioned, everybody immediately knows what you’re talking about even if they’ve never seen an episode in their lives. To commemorate the show’s 55th anniversary, RLJ Entertainment and Image Entertainment have released a 2-disc DVD set of the series’ most essential episodes.
Covering many topics in the horror, fantasy, and science fiction genres, The Twilight Zone [...]
All Hallows' Eve Review
Director Damien Leone is one nasty, talented S.O.B. If you are big into short horror films or the indie horror scene, you have probably seen some of his truly disturbing work. I had been waiting for his film All Hallows’ Eve to get released without the knowledge that most of the film had already been released on the internet as short films, so I went in completely blind and left more than happy.
I’m a huge fan of horror anthologies [...]
Monsters: The Complete Series Review
I was born in 1987, so obviously I wasn’t able to watch any of the awesome horror anthology shows that were airing around that time, until I was much older. I remember catching some episodes of Tales From the Crypt here and there, while staying up late at my grandmother’s house, but I could never fully appreciate it. One show that I managed to miss the existence of completely was Monsters. The show originally aired for three seasons, from [...]
