Your Melon is Too Sweet

Reign of Assassins Review

Reign of Assassins | Repulsive Reviews | Horror Movies

Guys, we’ve been over this before. Yes, I am an avid horror fan, but I also like to watch other types of films from time to time. There’s a whole bunch of great stuff out there, so I have to make time for it all. Today, I am glad I made time for Su Chao-Pin’s epic martial arts thriller, Reign of Assassins.

An ancient Chinese legend tells of a mystical Buddhist monk who’s remains possess great power. Whoever is [...]

Death Will Rise

Daughter of Dracula Review

Daughter of Dracula | Repulsive Reviews | Horror Movies

There are a whole mess of films out there dealing with vampires and more specifically Dracula. Each year, while more films on the subject are being made, I am introduced to those of the 70s and 80s that have managed to elude me all this time. I have seen the good, the bad, and the ugly that the sub-genre has to offer, but I continue to dig through to see what else the undead bloodsuckers can bring to the table. [...]

Smells Like Burnt Chicken

Atroz Review

Atroz | Repulsive Reviews | Horror Movies

An extremely large number of murders remain unsolved in Mexico each year, leaving those of us to wonder how the perpetrators get away with their heinous crimes. Even though there have been a countless number of horror films “based on true events,” it is possible that first-time feature film director Lex Ortega’s Atroz is one of the most accurate depictions of every day life in Mexico.

After a gruesome accident, the police commander in charge of the scene takes it [...]

Time is Running Out

Kill Zone 2 Review

Kill Zone 2 | Repulsive Reviews | Horror Movies

I’ve been a fan of martial arts films for at least fifteen years now. Sadly, however, I do not watch them frequently enough to really keep up with the actors or any new trends that may be occurring in the genre. When I do happen to stumble across one and actually have time to watch it, I am blown away at how the genre has evolved. In that regard, Pou-Soi Cheang’s Kill Zone 2 is no exception.

There are many [...]

But if it Happens by Chance…

Fever Review

Fever | Repulsive Reviews | Horror Movies

Artsploitation Films has a knack for releasing some very interesting films, many of which I would never even hear about if it weren’t for the indie studio’s distribution. There are plenty of films in the catalog I have yet to see, but the ones I have had the pleasure of viewing have all been entertaining in their own unique way. While it isn’t my favorite of the bunch, Raphael Neal’s Fever is no different in its uniqueness and originality.

The Shock Woke Me Up

Sex Murder Art Review

Sex Murder Art | Repulsive Reviews | Horror Movies

It always amazes me how much love and care some studios put into the horror genre’s most obscure and seemingly lost titles. Currently, there are various companies doing so around the world, but when it comes to the controversial films of German director Jorg Buttgereit, there is only one that can take that title — Cult Epics. Bringing new life to some of the most controversial foreign gore films of all time, Cult Epics has previously released beautifully remastered editions [...]

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 [...]

We Are Marked by Karma

Lady Snowblood Review

Lady Snowblood | Repulsive Reviews | Horror

Anyone who has been part of the horror community long enough knows that there are plenty of discussions that involve the inclusion of other genres from time to time. I don’t mean things like ‘action’ or ‘comedy.’ Although those will always have their place, of course. What I do mean is those other genres that are actually quite closely knit to horror for one reason or another, things like exploitation and its numerous sub-genres (blaxploitation, nunsploitation, Nazisploitation, etc.), among others.
