With Halloween right around the corner, I am trying my damnedest to get back into the role of ‘horror film critic.’ While last week I reviewed a recent Hollywood production (see The Mummy), I decided to visit the other side of the spectrum with a low-budget indie flick this week. Was Bev Land’s Lycan worth both my time and yours? Read on to find out…

Cards of Death Guest Review
Cards of Death has a very interesting existence and story. Written by, directed by, and starring Will MacMillan (The Crazies, Christmas Evil), the film was released in 1986 via a limited edition VHS run in Japan. After this, the film was considered lost for 28 years until Bleeding Skull Video got their hands on a copy and decided to re-release the film in America, again via a limited edition VHS run.
The plot for Cards of Death [...]
A Nightmare on Elm Street 3: Dream Warriors Review
Greetings, my excellent friends! EvildeadInks is back with my newest review from my fav franchise – A Nightmare on Elm Street. Today, we cover the most popular in the series, Dream Warriors. Released in 1987, this put the series back on track after part two that got mixed reviews… you know I love part two, but lets not get off topic. ‘Back on track’ meaning the rules of the series are enforced more correctly and brings back characters [...]
The Burning Video Review
Roger is back and he’s talking about another slasher! That’s right, folks. It’s Wednesday and Rottin’ Roger has some stuff to tell you about Tony Maylam’s The Burning.
Released in 1981, just when the slasher sub-genre was really taking off, The Burning is similar in plot to most — a group of campers are being stalked by a disfigured murderer who kills them off, one by one. Doesn’t sound too interesting, right? WRONG! Listen to Roger, as he tells [...]
The Mutilator Video Review
Guys, it’s Wednesday… It’s freakin’ Wednesday! That can only mean one thing — Rottin’ Roger is back with another one of his infamous video reviews! This time around, Rog tackles the 1984 slasher flick, The Mutilator, written and directed by Buddy Cooper.
Also known as Fall Break, this slasher includes all of the tropes of the era and of course, Roger breaks everything down for you with his Splatter Facts. How does The Mutilator stack up against the [...]
Slaughterhouse Video Review
Another week has gone by, so of course, that means Rottin’ Roger is back with another one of his gore-tastic video reviews! What is it this week, you ask? Well, Roger has another slasher on the chopping block, this time around, with Rick Roessler’s Slaughterhouse.
This 1987 slasher flick contains many, if not all, of the tropes we’ve grown to love from our favorite sub-genre — a pretty high body-count, some gnarly kills, and a menacing antagonist, Buddy Bacon… [...]
Evil Laugh Video Review
Just like every Wednesday, Rottin’ Roger DeMarco is back with another one of his video reviews! This time around, he takes a look at the 1986 slasher flick, Evil Laugh.
Directed by Dominick Brascia (Joey from Friday the 13th: A New Beginning), Evil Laugh blended horror and self-aware comedic elements, 20 years before films like Scream mastered the art.
Roger has tons of insight and behind-the-scenes tidbits about this film that you’re going to want to hear. He [...]
A Nightmare on Elm Street 2 Review
Ah, to be the new kid in school, as if that wasn’t a nightmare already. Today I review part two of my favorite series of horror, A Nightmare on Elm Street. I chose part two to start because, well, it widely goes overlooked.
I am the biggest fan of the first, four, five, and six are a different beast, and seven is an island all its own. I use to own the original three on a VHS tape and [...]
