Daughters of Darkness Review
As a long time collector, it is not a foreign concept to acquire a film, stick it on one of my many shelves, and forget about it for ages. In a day and age when new restorations of said films are given to fans periodically, there is no longer a reason to ignore them. As I received yet another copy of Harry Kümel’s Daughters of Darkness, there was no better time to finally dive into it.
The House by the Cemetery Review
After years of running this site, I have a confession to make. Even though I’ve taken the last name “Fulci” for my on-site persona, I have actually missed out on quite a few of the films made by my namesake, the maestro himself, Lucio Fulci. One that I actually have seen in the past, however, is his 1981 flick, The House by the Cemetery. Read on to see how revisiting this one went, years after my initial viewing.
Hell of the Living Dead Review
I think you guys would realize this by now…but I have a LOT of free times on my hand and I mean a LOT of it. So once again, it is time for gaming and VRV and I must choose a film from my watch list.

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 [...]
The Stendhal Syndrome Review
There have been a number of times that I’ve changed my mind about a particular film, instances where I’ve gone from hating a movie the first time seeing it, only to enjoy it immensely during my next visit. That seems to be the case, once again, with Dario Argento’s 1996 film, The Stendhal Syndrome.
There is nothing more exciting than finding new slasher films from the golden era of horror. The 80’s saw releases of some of the greatest horror films of all time. Among them are slasher greats like Intruder, Maniac, and The Burning. Now, I have another to add to the ever-growing list with Dick Maas’ Amsterdamned.
A deranged killer is murdering people throughout Amsterdam. He is able to avoid capture, however, by using the city’s canal system [...]
