Annihilate the Specters

Another Evil Review

Another Evil | Repulsive Reviews | Horror Movies

When I was younger, I hated the idea of horror comedies. Films that blended frights and laughs equally just didn’t make sense to me.  If I wanted to laugh, I’d watch a straight-up comedy flick, not a horror one! As I grew older, however, I started watching more and more of these films that were actually very successful in combining both genres. Is Carson Mell’s supernatural comedy, Another Evil, one of the successful ones? Read on to find out. [...]

He Killed His Mama

Henry: Portrait of a Serial Killer Review

Henry: Portrait of a Serial Killer | Repulsive Reviews | Horror Movies

In my recent review of Don Coscarelli’s Phantasm, I made mention of the fact that I couldn’t quite comprehend what all of the fuss over the film was really about. By the end of my second viewing, I had more of a grasp on it, but still wasn’t quite there. Another film that had the same effect on me upon my first viewing was John McNaughton’s 1986 film, Henry: Portrait of a Serial Killer. This second viewing, however, [...]

Let’s Get Going

Traders Review

Traders | Repulsive Reviews | Horror Movies

One of the largest concerns on the minds of people these days seems to be the same worldwide. No matter where you live or what your current situation may be, I feel as though it is always on our minds, at least to some degree. What I’m referring to is financial security. You have a great paying job, a beautiful home, and everything you ever dreamed of having, but what happens if that is all taken away overnight? You lose [...]

Chicks are Like Old Men

Scherzo Diabolico Review

Scherzo Diabolico | Repulsive Reviews | Horror Movies

I’m starting to learn that revenge flicks come in many forms. The sub-genre used to only contain films of beaten and battered women who escape their captors, only to seek vengeance in the most brutal of ways. While I happen to love films of that nature — I Spit on Your Grave (original and remake franchise), Savage Streets — it is still refreshing to see a new take on the old formula. That is exactly what we get with Adrian [...]

…I Just Saw my First China Hole

Emelie Review

Emelie | Repulsive Reviews | Horror Movies

There have been a string of really unique and creative home invasion films over the past few years. Movies including You’re Next, The Aggression Scale, and more recently Intruders and Hush have really livened up the sub-genre, making it an exciting experience every time. Luckily for fans of this style of horror, there continue to be more up and coming filmmakers who decide to take a stab at it. First-time feature director, Michael Thelin has done just that [...]

Death is the Beginning

Cherry Tree Review

Cherry Tree | Repulsive Reviews | Horror Movies

While there is somewhat of an oversaturation of multiple horror sub-genres — zombies, found footage, etc — there is one theme I’d like to see explored a little more frequently. What I am referring to is witchcraft. There have been witches in horror before and with the recent release of The Witch, I predict we will be seeing a lot more of it in the near future, as well. Luckily, I didn’t have to wait too long for that [...]

I Think We Just Picked Up Dracula

The Texas Chain Saw Massacre: 40th Anniversary Edition Review

The Texas Chain Saw Massacre

The classics never die. It seems every few years we get re-prints of our favorite horror films with more and more special features to sucker us in. Some aren’t all they’re cracked up to be and leave us with less money in our wallets and multiple versions of so-called “improved transfers” or “Ultimate Collector’s Editions.” However, Dark Sky Films has managed to give us way more than we could have hoped for with the amazing “40th Anniversary Edition” of arguably [...]
