Halloween II Review
The new Halloween is heading right for us this October, but before it wipes the slate clean, I figured I’d review 1981’s Halloween II. In the name of Ben Tramer, who will never be forgotten, this one’s for you.
Halloween 2 is my personal favorite in the franchise for many reasons. It can be played back-to-back with the original, it ups the ante for the body count, the backstory is revealed, and The Shape gets a fitting end… or [...]
Drag Me to Hell Video Review

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.

Nekromantik Video Review
We might be a day late, but better late than never, especially when it comes to another video review from Rottin’ Roger DeMarco. This time, Roger dives into the…um… classic Jorg Buttgereit flick Nekromantik.
Roger gets into the nitty gritty of things with his Splatter Facts, as always. Now, if you know anything about this 1987 German shock film, then you know it’s pretty out there. The subject matter is rather ‘controversial,’ so you can only imagine how entertaining [...]
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 [...]
