The last I can recall any mention of a djinn in a horror film is with the Wishmaster franchise, which started in 1997. The djinn of that series was an evil entity that could grant wishes, sort of a malevolent genie. Fast forward almost 20 years and Ajmal Zaheer Ahmad has brought us a completely different take on the evil beings, in his film Jinn.
After a mysterious package arrives at his door, Shawn (Dominic Rains) and his wife, [...]
Gnome Alone Review
Years ago, I thought of Lionsgate as an authority on horror films. They released some pretty great stuff back in the day, but lately, I’ve been beyond disappointed. With awful films like Gingerclown and Speak No Evil, I’ve come to really expect the worst from the studio’s DVD-only releases. The latest horror film from their straight-to-DVD slate is entitled Gnome Alone and while I went in expecting nothing special, I was pleasantly surprised to find a cheesy, yet fun [...]
Doctor Mordrid Review
While some are downright terrible, I have enjoyed quite a bit of films that have been released under the Full Moon Features/Productions/Entertainment/Studios/Pictures label over the years. The very best of them always seem to have one thing in common. That one thing, just like in Charles Band’s 1992 fantasy film, Doctor Mordrid, is the fact that the star of the film is Jeffrey Combs.

There are tons of movies that have slipped right by me over the years. I don’t even mean just in the horror genre either. If it weren’t for studios like Mill Creek Entertainment, I would have never had the opportunity to watch the 80’s sci-fi adventure film, Krull.
On the planet Krull, a young couple are to be wed and named the new king and queen, when an opposing force, the Black Fortress, and its Slayers interrupt the ceremony, [...]
Journey to the West: Conquering the Demons Review
Magnet Releasing releases some of the most diverse genre films around. From amazing titles like Bad Milo! and Grand Piano, I am never disappointed. It is because of their great catalog, that I get excited to watch all of the trailers they include with their DVD and blu-ray releases. If I had skipped over these trailers, like most people would, I would have never found out about the fantastic action adventure fantasy movie directed by Stephen Chow, Journey to [...]
I, Frankenstein Review
I remember seeing a TV spot for the first Underworld film years ago and thinking how stupid is was to have vampires and werewolves battling each other with guns and other modern weaponry. Needless to say, I didn’t run out and see it and actually, quite a few years passed before I finally sat down and watched the film for the first time. Ever since I finally decided to do so, I fell in love with the entire franchise. I [...]
