Is That Our Ted?
The Stranger Beside Me Review
With the recent Netflix film and docu-series, it is only fitting that other other movies on the subject of Ted Bundy make a comeback of their own. One of them making its way back into the sight of the audience is Paul Shapiro’s The Stranger Beside Me.
While working at a crisis center in the 70’s, Ann Rule, unwittingly becomes friends with soon-to-be notorious serial killer, Ted Bundy.
Ted Bundy is one of the most [...]
No Fare, No Ride
I used to seriously hate almost all made-for-television, more specifically made-for-the-syfy-channel, movies. That all changed, however, when I finally caved into the Sharknado craze and watched Sharknado 2 last year. I had a blast watching that flick and since then have changed my tune when it comes to the low-budget monster/natural disaster mash-up movies. Luckily for fans of this type of thing, it doesn’t look like these kind of flicks are going to go away anytime soon. The latest one [...]
You Discovered Santa’s Sleigh!
I usually steer clear of the natural disaster horror films that make their way to the Syfy channel, but after the blast I had with last year’s Sharknado 2, I’ve changed my tune a bit. These made-for-TV films are actually upping their game a little bit and Jonathan Winfrey’s Icetastrophe proves itself as another worthy entry into the sub-genre.
It’s Christmas time and the small town of Lennox has gathered to celebrate the holiday and the changes coming in [...]

Grave Halloween Review
What better movie to review during the month of October than one with the word “Halloween” in it? No, I’m not talking about those Halloween movies either. This time around, I’m talking about Steven Monroe’s SyFy original movie, Grave Halloween.
Maiko, an exchange student at a local university, agrees to take a documentary crew on a trip to find some answers about her recently deceased mother. They are warned to stay out of “suicide forest,” but Maiko is determined [...]

Dan Curtis' Dracula Review
To be completely honest, I’m not a fan of many vampire films. Well, let me re-phrase that; I’m not a fan of sappy vampire movies with little to no action. Bigger, nastier vampire films like John Carpenter’s Vampires or From Dusk Till Dawn tickle my fancy. Needless to say I wasn’t exactly overly excited to see yet another take on Bram Stoker’s Dracula. At least until I saw that Jack Palance was cast as Dracula himself.
I can’t say [...]
Pig’s Blood for a Pig
Now, I know I’m not alone when I say that I despised the 2013 version of Carrie. Despite how much I hate it and want to rant about it, I’m going to leave it alone. I want to sing a little bit of praise for the 2002 made-for-TV version of Carrie. I feel like David Carson’s vision/version of the novel and already fantastic original film is a fantastic adaptation, often passed over by casual fans or mistaken for [...]
