Ghoulies II Review
Welcome, boils and ghouls, to another EvildeadInks movie review. Today, we cover another lost sequel, Ghoulies II!
First off, you don’t need to watch the original to enjoy this film. In fact, if it wasn’t a double feature, I’m not sure I’d even own the original. The only tie between them are the ghoulie creature designs. In Ghoulies II, these nasty little beings are presumably summoned by Satanists and quickly stolen by a priest. After dropping the poor [...]
The Monster Guest Review
I can’t say that I ever really believed in monsters. I was a fearless kid who mistrusted the real world too much to focus on unimaginable creatures. I’ve always been under the impression that the things that “could’ lurk in the shadows were never as scary as the terrors the real world might produce. Don’t get me wrong, I still cannot sleep with my feet dangling over the edge of my bed (because if monsters were real, they would live [...]
Jeepers Creepers II Review
In 2003, Victor Salva decided it was a good idea to release the follow-up film to his sleeper hit, Jeepers Creepers. It had been two years and some of the hype had worn off, not to mention the internet was buzzing with talk of how despicable Victor Salva truly was. Light was being shed on his past and many horror fans were not having it. Perhaps the final nail in the coffin Jeepers Creepers II was trying to open [...]
Dark Was the Night Review
In my honest opinion, there are not enough good creature features in the horror genre. I think this is most likely the case because it is an extremely difficult feat to pull off. I mean, there are plenty of indie filmmakers out there that have tried I;m sure, but it isn’t easy to create a monster that has never been seen before, while also making it look convincing and downright frightening. Thankfully, it does happen occasionally and I am glad [...]
I loved everything about Resolution after my first viewing of it. The writing was intriguing and funny, the acting was fantastic, and the entire thing was unpredictable. The only problem with it was that damn ending, the ending that kept me wanting more. Although it is completely unrelated and has no connection whatsoever plot-wise, Aaron Moorhead and Justin Benson’s Spring is that more that I was waiting for.
After his ill mother dies and he gets fired from his job, [...]
The Thing from Another World Review
Most horror fans of my generation grew up loving the John Carpenter film The Thing. Its incredible cast, mounting paranoia, and utterly astounding creature effects, courtesy of Rob Bottin, made a lasting impression on our young minds. While the film pushed every boundary possible in the realm of practical effects, it is highly regarded for its psychological elements that still lead to discussions among horror fans to this day.
Truly a master of his craft, Carpenter lets the tension [...]
Motivational Growth Review
The horror genre is definitely a vast one. There are your run of the mill, straight-forward flicks that provide the common tropes of various sub-genres including slashers or creature features, but then there are those movies that are so out there that you don’t even know how to classify them. That’s exactly how I feel about Don Thacker’s strangely original film, Motivational Growth.
Ian Folliver (Adrian DiGiovanni) hasn’t left his apartment in over a year. He is a filthy, [...]
Fear Clinic Review
Having never actually seen an episode of the original web series, which premiered on FEARnet.com, I wasn’t quite sure what I was getting into with the all new feature film, Fear Clinic. Luckily for me, Robert Hall has made a thoroughly entertaining film with original ideas and tons of creativity.
Dr. Andover (Robert Englund) is a renowned physician who has invented a chamber that facilitates in the exploration and treatment of phobias. After a tragic event, however, the good [...]
