Feature Presentation:Santa Claws (1996)

Welcome back to week 3 of Feature Presentation:The Nightmare on Christmas. Having already seen wrestlers grapple with puns in Santa’s Slay and why traumatized kids should never grow up to play Santa in Silent Night, Deadly Night, this week’s feature includes a special Christmas treat for me, or so I thought. As I’ve stated many, […]

Falling Down (1993): Crazy Never Sleeps

From the first shot, a intense close-up of teeth that pulls out slowly to reveal the sweaty upper lip, the eyes, and the horn rim glasses of William ‘D-Fens’ Foster, director Joel Schumacher establishes the pressure cooker feeling pervades his 1993 film Falling Down. As he sits in a traffic jam, the inside of his […]

Mental Health Awareness Month: Cat In The Brain (1990)

Hello folks and welcome to week three of Mental Health Awareness Month. This week’s post is special to me not only because I once again get to revisit one of my favorite directors, but today is my 200th film review. I am very happy to have reached this milestone, and I hope to be here […]

Halloween Top 13: The Remake – #8: Body Snatchers (1993)

Last year when Werner Herzog released his film Bad Lieutenant: Port of Call: New Orleans, it really amused me how bent out of shape Bad Lieutenant director Abel Ferrara got from the idea of his film being remade. Anyone who read anything about Herzog’s film would have found out that the title of the Ferrara’s […]

There’s More Than Just Pitts in this Berg

I was checking around for information on tonight’s film and one of the sites I checked was Tom Savini’s. Strangely, I could find no mention of his involvement with the project, but perhaps not so strange after all. Our Lord and Savior Tom (for more info on why Tom is the son of god check the […]

Return from Death a.k.a Frankenstein 2000 (1991) Joe D’Amato Brings Horror to Life

Despite the fact that the phrase an “average Joe” remains in the lexicon of colloquialisms, in the last thirty years the name Joe has taken a drastic drop in popularity. It seems that the average on “Joe” just isn’t what it used to be. Speaking of Joes that’d defy the average, there’s one that I […]

Left Turn at Albuquerque: The Wrong Turn Franchise

When I started this project, I actually thought I hadn’t seen the first Wrong Turn. Even going into it, it seemed both familiar and completely new. By the end of the film, I realized that I had not only seen it once, I’d probably seen it a good half dozen times over the years. With […]

The Lightning Bug Dollar Deals: Abraxas

So with bailouts going on left and right, I’m back to pitch in again to bail out your genre movie collection. Tonight’s movie is one that has been a “value” title nearly since it’s release in 1991. I recall seeing it on video for three or four bucks back in the nineties, and while I […]

Happy All Hallow Eve Eve to you fine folks. Tonight as you rush around to carve your pumpkins, make those last minute changes on your costume, or making sure you have enough candy or booze to make it, it’s time to kick back and watch a rarity in horror, the epic hero. Ashley J Williams, […]
