The Lift Review
In horror, whether literature or film, we’ve seen haunted automobiles, haunted washing machines, and of course haunted houses. Very rarely have we seen anything like a haunted elevator shaft. That is unless you’ve watched Dick Maas’ 1983 film, The Lift, of course.
After a brief power outage, a group of had-too-much-to-drink couples gets stuck inside of an elevator. With the elevator’s air conditioning also not working, the group doesn’t last long, passing out from heat exhaustion and almost losing [...]
Another Evil Review
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. [...]
What is it that determines whether a film is deserving of a re-mastered re-release? Plenty of companies gain the rights to cult classics that fans long for in mighty Blu-ray HD quality or even 4k, more recently. While others seem to waste time on movies that don’t have any business living past their VHS-only existence. Where does the recent release of Paul Golding’s Pulse fall on this spectrum of horror gems? Read on and find out.

Death Spa Video Review
If you aren’t excited for Wednesdays by now, you might just be dead! Rottin’ Roger is back with another one of his [in]famous video reviews. This time, he goes into detail about Michael Fischa’s Death Spa.
This supernatural slasher, originally released in 1989, is about, you guessed it, a haunted spa/fitness club. There is tons of nudity and plenty of gore, so you know Roger tells all in his Splatter Facts portion of the video.

Manhattan Baby Review
Mythological tales exist from almost every culture you can think of — Babylonian, Greek, Roman, Egyptian, etc. They are rich in culture and tell a great deal about the history of the people whom created such stories. There is plenty of material out there and one director who was intelligent and imaginative enough to seize the opportunity to make a film about some of the mythos was Lucio Fulci with his 1982 production, Manhattan Baby.

Amityville: It's About Time Review
Time to hit the nostalgia sweet spot for me once again with this one. The Amityville series is a unique one, to say the least, and this movie is no exception. Amityville 1992, another film I owned on VHS, back in the day, right before we moved towns and didn’t have cable or a close video store, so we snagged as much new cinema as we could before the move. This was one of those gems and it holds [...]

The Forest Review
I have waited a long time to watch The Forest because of all of the negative reviews I had been hearing/reading about it. I try not to let other people’s opinions affect mine, so I had to let the criticism die down a bit before I could really give this one a fair shot. Unfortunately, after finally viewing it, I agree with a lot of the low scores the film has received since its release. I thought there was a [...]
