Stake Land II Review
There are times when movies are announced, their release date comes and goes, and you hear nothing about the film at all. No good opinions, no negative criticisms, nothing. Generally, that’s not a good sign. I would just assume that means the movie was nothing special and isn’t worth anyone’s time. Oddly enough, however, that is certainly not the case with Dan Berk and Robert Olsen’s 2016 film, Stake Land II, as it is a great sequel and a [...]
Being an avid horror fan for as long as I can remember, I wish I could say that I’ve watched every film ever released in the genre. Sadly this is not the case and realistically, it never will be. Because of this, there are remakes that I get a chance to watch before ever seeing the original production they are based off of. This happens to be the exact case with Victor Matellano’s newest film, Vampyres, a faithful re-imagining [...]
Daughter of Dracula Review
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. [...]
John Carpenter's Vampires Review
There are a select few filmmakers that are synonymous with the word “legend,” when it comes to the horror genre. Undeniably, John Carpenter is one of them. Even though I tend to agree that the man is an iconic director, writer, composer, etc., I still have yet to see a large chunk of his filmography. Today, I finally got to cross another one of his great pieces of work off of my ‘to watch’ list with his adaptation of John [...]
From the Dark Review
At this point, it’s a pretty safe bet to say that any and every film that Dark Sky Films releases will be a great one. Obviously some are better than others, but I can honestly say that all of the releases that I own from this company have been extremely enjoyable in one way or another. Their latest release, Conor McMahon’s From the Dark, is no different and is a worthy entry in the vampire sub-genre.
A young couple, [...]
Dracula Untold Review
Ever since Roger and I started doing this whole review thing, I’ve made it a point to stay away from other review sites. Don’t get me wrong; There are some awesome sites out there with some pretty great insight on what’s going on in the horror genre — the good, the bad, and the God awful — but I don’t want other writers’ opinions to subconsciously effect mine. Although I’ve stayed away from these full-blown reviews, I still manage to [...]
From Dusk Till Dawn: The Series - Season One Review
We’ve all seen film remakes and even those remakes that were presented in a television mini-series format (see Rosemary’s Baby), but in recent years, we’ve seen the tides turn a little bit. Instead of your straight reboot scenarios, we are seeing filmmakers and producers taking their work to television. With episodic series like Bates Motel, we are diving deeper into the stories behind some of the horror genre’s cult classics. The most recent example of this is the [...]
Rigor Mortis Review
Fresh off of watching the greatly entertaining vampire flick, Afflicted, comes another vampire film review. This time around, it is Juno Mak’s martial arts-infused ghost story, Rigor Mortis.
A lonely and depressed man has moved into an apartment building where the supernatural roam the halls. Ghosts, vampire hunters, and the undead are all tenants in the building and this suicidal man is thrown right in the middle of it all.
I have seen a few Asian horror films [...]
