31 Days of Halloween 2016 #4 – It’s a Chopping Celebration

When you commit to the slasher, you either commit to it or you’re just another I Know What you Did Last Summer crappy teen movie, but Hatchet (2006) isn’t one of those.  It… Continue reading

31 Days of Halloween 2016 #5 – The Vampire Motorcycle

What makes a good bad movie?  I Bought a Vampire Motorcycle (1990) is a movie that’s bad on purpose, not like Battlefield Earth or something, but it’s debatable if it’s so bad it’s… Continue reading

31 Days of Halloween 2016 #6 – Dracula, Prince of Darkness

Dracula, Prince of Darkness is one of the better Hammer horror movies, but I could have used at least a word or two from Christopher Lee.  This movie sorta features Christopher Lee and… Continue reading

31 Days of Halloween 2016 #7 – Jacob’s Ladder: An Analysis

All horror twists owe something to Jacob’s Ladder.  This movie is about death, obsessing and holding onto lost love ones, and the nature of memory.  The movie itself is weird like a David… Continue reading

31 Days of Halloween 2016 #8 – Rasputin is Mad

To coincide with the celebration of Christopher Lee, this marathon takes a look at Rasputin, the Mad Monk from 1966.  This movie is underrated.  When I first saw it, it was on a… Continue reading

The Walking Dead – ep 7.1 – Has it gone too far?

Unfortunately, the media had a harsh reaction to season seven premiere of The Walking Dead, some going so far as to suggest that the show bordered on torture porn.  I think intense and gritty and… Continue reading

31 Days of Halloween 2016 #9 – They Live

I haven’t met anyone yet who doesn’t like They Live, much less anybody who enjoys their movies with a side of social commentary.  Admittedly, the movie stops short of diving into its main theme,… Continue reading

31 Days of Halloween 2016 #10 – Spencer Tracy as Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde

Which version of this story is best?  There’s plenty of versions to choose from.  Most people prefer the 1931 version, with the goofy Hyde and over-the-top performances.  The 1941 version starring Spencer Tracy… Continue reading

31 Days of Halloween #11 – Day of the Dead

Can anyone or anything top Dawn of the Dead?  I’m thinking George Romero already knew that.  He didn’t even try.  So in effect, we get this movie, the anti-Dawn of the Dead.  It… Continue reading

31 Days of Halloween #12 – The Always Evil Dead

This is simply a classic, and an essential part of any horror library.  Anybody who doesn’t like Ash, needs to watch the 1981 original and the sequels all over again and get with… Continue reading

31 Days of Halloween 2016 #13 – Cube 1997

Creators of The Blair Witch Project must have watched Cube (1997) and thought walking to nowhere was a good idea.  I’m really a sucker for low-budget junk that tries to be something more… Continue reading

31 Days of Halloween 2016 #14 – The First Final Chapter

Most people argue that Friday the 13th Part 6 or 7 is the best of the bunch, but The Final Chapter is underappreciated.  Roger Ebert had the strongest review of this movie I’ve… Continue reading

31 Days of Halloween 2016 #15 – I feel re-animated

I’ve never seen Re-Animator (1985), so I went in with no expectations, and came out surprised and re-animated.  The reason I didn’t think much of it is because the story sounds very plain,… Continue reading

31 Days of Halloween #16 – Videodrome by David Cronenberg

So I’ve reviewed a lot of horror comedies, monster movies and slasher flicks, but Videodrome (1983) is a straight-up horror film meant to mess with your head.  It’s got hallucinations and strange, cyberpunk… Continue reading

31 Days of Halloween – The New Glow-in-the-Dark Godzilla (2016)

The new Toho, glow-in-the-dark Godzilla is different from any previous version of the famous monster.  This time it’s a complete movie, not a superficial wham-bam action cartoon, and it’s got plenty of themes to… Continue reading
