Sh*t Can be Bonkers

Bliss Review

I know this has to come to an end very soon, but I still find myself traveling down this long stretch of road where all stops are really great films. Never before have I been on such a roll and I couldn’t be happier as a film fan and as someone who writes about these films for fun. The latest treat to cross my path is Joe Begos’ Bliss.

Dezzy (Dora Madison, “Dexter”) is a talented artist [...]

Going In?

Possum Review

Possum | Repulsive Reviews | Horror Movies

Movie trailers generally do a pretty good job of letting an audience know what they are in for. There are those rare instances, however, where you watch a trailer and still have no idea what a film is about. That is the exact experience I had with Matthew Holness’ Possum.

The Plot

A disgraced children’s puppeteer is haunted by secrets and his very own puppet, after returning to his childhood home where his stepfather still resides.

My Thoughts

I’ve [...]

So You Like Scary Stories, Do Ya?

The Dark Review

The Dark | Repulsive Reviews | Horror Movies

In case you haven’t noticed, I’ve been watching tons of movies lately. I’ve been able to dig into things that I, a few months ago, thought I’d never have time for. A little shifting around of my every day routine, however, has allowed me the luxury of checking out some horror flicks that otherwise would go unwatched, collecting dust on my shelves. Tonight’s feature is Justin P. Lange’s The Dark.

The Plot

A wanted man finds refuge in rundown [...]

Rules of Engagement, Rusty Guts

Mohawk Review

Mohawk | Repulsive Reviews | Horror Movies

After months of watching movies “just for fun,” I figured it’s time to dust off the old keyboard and share a few of my thoughts on one.  I’m not sure I even remember how to do this, but what better way to dive back into the swing of things than with Ted Geoghegan’s newest film, Mohawk.

During a time when the Brits and Americans were at war, the Mohawk tribe is doing its best to remain neutral.  This is [...]

Annihilate the Specters

Another Evil Review

Another Evil | Repulsive Reviews | Horror Movies

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. [...]

Henry: Portrait of a Serial Killer Review

Henry: Portrait of a Serial Killer | Repulsive Reviews | Horror Movies

In my recent review of Don Coscarelli’s Phantasm, I made mention of the fact that I couldn’t quite comprehend what all of the fuss over the film was really about. By the end of my second viewing, I had more of a grasp on it, but still wasn’t quite there. Another film that had the same effect on me upon my first viewing was John McNaughton’s 1986 film, Henry: Portrait of a Serial Killer. This second viewing, however, [...]
