Death Race 2050 Review

Death Race 2050 | Repulsive Reviews | Horror Movies

A few days ago, I made it a point to watch the Roger Corman-produced, Paul Bartel-directed Death Race 2000. It was quite different from I had built up in my mind, but pretty enjoyable, nonetheless. The reason I wanted to watch the ’75 flick was really to prepare myself for what I thought was a sequel that had just been released.  It turns out G.J. Echternkamp’s Death Race 2050 isn’t a sequel, but instead a brand new re-imagining of [...]

Did You Hear Something?

Ernest Scared Stupid Mini-Review

Ernest Scared Stupid | Repulsive Reviews | Horror Movies

Ernest Scared Stupid is the horror installment of the Ernest franchise. Although it is very much an Ernest movie, it does contain elements of creepy fun and is a gateway film for the young.

The movie takes place in Briarville, Missouri, so points for the home-state hero, being a MO native, myself. Ernest works as apparently the only garbage man in this whole town who is also a descendant of the family that put Trantor the Troll in the ground, [...]

Why are You Taking Off Your Shoes?

Night of the Living Deb Review

Night of the Living Deb | Repulsive Reviews | Horror Movies

When I was younger, you could not get me to watch a horror film that was laced with comedy. To me, it was impossible to meld the two distinctive genres together successfully. Sure, there was The Evil Dead and Peter Jackson’s Dead Alive, but those were on another level. I have changed my stance on the matter since then, however; Filmmakers have made leaps and bounds in their genre-infusing abilities, especially when it comes to zombie comedies — zom-coms, [...]

You Look Like my Butthole’s Ass

Cooties Review

Cooties | Repulsive Reviews | Horror Movies

The last few films that I’ve seen starring Elijah Wood have been some of the most original genre films I’ve witnessed in a very long time. Needless to say, when his project about a virus outbreak at an elementary school was announced, I was more excited than words can describe. When I started spotting initial reviews of the film, however, the opinions didn’t seem to coincide with what I had come to expect. I heard some pretty negative things, but [...]

No Fare, No Ride

Lavalantula Review

Lavalantula | Horror Movie Review

I used to seriously hate almost all made-for-television, more specifically made-for-the-syfy-channel, movies. That all changed, however, when I finally caved into the Sharknado craze and watched Sharknado 2 last year. I had a blast watching that flick and since then have changed my tune when it comes to the low-budget monster/natural disaster mash-up movies. Luckily for fans of this type of thing, it doesn’t look like these kind of flicks are going to go away anytime soon. The latest one [...]

You’ve Gone Necro, Bro

Burying the Ex Review

Burying the Ex

Ever since watching Anton Yelchin’s performance in Odd Thomas, I became an immediate fan. When I first got wind of a new zom-com directed by Joe Dante of The Howling and Gremlins fame and starring Yelchin, I knew I was going to be in for a treat. I have to tell you, I was not disappointed either! Burying the Ex turned out to be a great time all around.

Horror fanatic, Max (Yelchin), isn’t happy with his overbearing, overly [...]

Wake That Dick Up

Zombeavers Review

Zombeavers

The best thing about the horror genre is that you can pretty much find a film to watch no matter what mood you are currently in. If you want to be spooked, you can turn off the lights and more often than not, a good supernatural ghost story will do the trick; if you want to have a few friends over and just sit back, relax, and have a good time, you can rent, purchase, or stream any number of [...]

The Voices Review

The Voices | Repulsive Revidws | Horror Movies

Although he has done some more serious roles over the past few years — Buried, Safe House — Ryan Reynolds may perhaps always be known as somewhat of a funny man. I’ve seen a few of his comedic outings like Van Wilder and Waiting…, but never have I seen him portray a character quite like he does in Marjane Satrapi’s black comedy horror film, The Voices.

Jerry (Reynolds) is an awkward factory worker who is seeing a [...]
