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 [...]

A Nightmare on Elm Street 2 Review
Ah, to be the new kid in school, as if that wasn’t a nightmare already. Today I review part two of my favorite series of horror, A Nightmare on Elm Street. I chose part two to start because, well, it widely goes overlooked.
I am the biggest fan of the first, four, five, and six are a different beast, and seven is an island all its own. I use to own the original three on a VHS tape and [...]

The Orphan Killer Review
It’s no secret that the slasher sub-genre is my favorite of all when it comes to horror cinema. When done correctly, these films can be both shocking and entertaining.

Luckily for us diehard fans, there are still a few filmmakers out there who produce some real quality slasher material. One of those [...]
