Terrifying Tuesday: Frontière(s)

What is it about France lately? Well, I think I’m caught in the aftershock of watching Martyrs, and I feel the need to dig further into this new wave of French horror. When I was checking out some of the titles out there, I saw that this one had been banned in Thailand for its […]

Trick or Treat (1986): I Want To Rock and Roll All Night (And Electrocute People With My Guitar)

For October 1st, I wanted to watch a movie for the first time, and so for nearly a year I have held on to today’s film, Trick or Treat (1986) and resisted the urge to watch it. I’m so glad I did. It turned out to be the perfect way to start October. I love […]

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, […]

I, Madman (1989)- Reading Might Be Fundamental, But It Can Be Murder!

Once again, it’s time to throw open the video tape vaults here at the Lair and delve into another diabolical selection from the world of VHS. That’s right; it’s time for another thrilling installment of It Came From Video Tape. Today’s selection, I, Madman, is one that I recall staring at me from the racks […]

Turkey Thursday:The Town that Dreaded Sundown (1976)

When I first looked up the IMDB page for Charles Pierce I was quite impressed. I scanned down the role of credits Coffe, Black Belt Jones, and The Outlaw Josey Wales among them, but then I noticed that those credits were for set decorating. Needless to say even though all three of those movies have […]

Chromeskull: Laid to Rest II: The Horrorhound Weekend Report

Hello all! Day One of Horrorhound Weekend is already behind me, and I already have things to report. Apart from getting to meet up with some folks (including Emily from The Deadly Doll’s House, The NOTLP crew, the Bloody Good Horror folks, Grey from The Dark Hours Podcast, Mike from Cadaver Lab, and many more), […]

Jeepers Creepers (2001) Death Loves Johnny Mercer

Holy shazbot, this makes three days in a row, and this time I’m back with an old favorite. Sometimes with all the new flicks I want to talk about, I neglect to go back and really talk about old favorites that deserve a place on your shelf, your queue, and definitely on the Lair. I’m […]

The Burning (1981) or Camping with George, Tom, and Harvey

I never went to summer camp, and the reason is simple. I don’t like the outdoors, outdoor sports, bugs, snakes, swimming in lakes, archery, making leather wallets, or getting gruesomely killed by a vengeful psycho. OK, perhaps the latter didn’t come into the equation when I was a lad, but it sure as hell would […]

Who Are These Kids? It’s My Bloody Birthday!

So I’ve been trying to enjoy my birthday all day long, but I just haven’t been able to get any peace. These three little kids have been following me everywhere, and something gives me the impression that they’re trying to kill me. I went to Denny’s to get my complimentary Birthday Slam, and they tried […]

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 […]
