Exorcist II: The Heretic Review

Exorcist II The Heretic | Repulsive Reviews | Horror Movies

Over the years, I’ve probably watched The Exorcist at least 10 times.  It is an undeniable classic in horror cinema and everyone knows it. I haven’t, however, ever watched any of the sequels that came after it. Hell, most of the time, I forget that the sequels even exist. With a brand new home release on the horizon, I figured there was no better time to finally check out John Boorman’s Exorcist II: The Heretic.

Four years after Regan [...]

You Find the Devil Where It’s Dark

Bram Stoker's Shadow Builder Review

Shadow Builder | Repulsive Reviews | Horror Movies

There are few authors who are synonymous with the horror genre. In modern times, we have the likes of Stephen King or Dean Koontz. Older names consist of Mary Shelley with her story of Dr. Frankenstein and his monster and, similarly, Bram Stoker with Dracula. Abraham Stoker wrote many more stories, however.  In 1998, over 100 years after its original publication, one short in particular was turned into a feature film, Jamie Dixon’s Bram Stoker’s Shadow Builder.

Insidious: The Last Key Review

Insidious The Last Key | Repulsive Reviews | Horror Movies

I’ve been on a huge giallo kick lately and while the films of Fulci, Argento, and the rest of the maestros of the golden age of horror will forever be held in high regard, it is nice to get back into something more modern.  I have really enjoyed this franchise ever since the first installment and I am happy to finally view its latest chapter, directed by Adam Robitel, Insidious: The Last Key.

Something Not Quite Right

The Lift Review

The Lift | Repulsive Reviews | Horror Movies

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 [...]

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. [...]

Spooky… Ain’t It?

Pulse Review

Pulse | Repulsive Reviews | Horror Movies

What is it that determines whether a film is deserving of a re-mastered re-release? Plenty of companies gain the rights to cult classics that fans long for in mighty Blu-ray HD quality or even 4k, more recently. While others seem to waste time on movies that don’t have any business living past their VHS-only existence. Where does the recent release of Paul Golding’s Pulse fall on this spectrum of horror gems? Read on and find out.

Sexy Things Happening

Death Spa Video Review

Death Spa | Repulsive Reviews | Horror Movies

If you aren’t excited for Wednesdays by now, you might just be dead! Rottin’ Roger is back with another one of his [in]famous video reviews. This time, he goes into detail about Michael Fischa’s Death Spa.

This supernatural slasher, originally released in 1989, is about, you guessed it, a haunted spa/fitness club. There is tons of nudity and plenty of gore, so you know Roger tells all in his Splatter Facts portion of the video.

Tombs are for the Dead

Manhattan Baby Review

Manhattan Baby | Repulsive Reviews | Horror Movies

Mythological tales exist from almost every culture you can think of — Babylonian, Greek, Roman, Egyptian, etc. They are rich in culture and tell a great deal about the history of the people whom created such stories. There is plenty of material out there and one director who was intelligent and imaginative enough to seize the opportunity to make a film about some of the mythos was Lucio Fulci with his 1982 production, Manhattan Baby.
