SYNOPSIS: Oncologist Peter Peel discovers a possible cure for cancer in an exotic parasite. When he tests his cure on himself, a monster is born. REVIEW: Skinless (aka The Ballad of Skinless Pete) is a movie that really surprised me with how much I liked it.

Book Review: Exponential – Author Adam Cesare


I can’t remember the last straight-up monster book that I’ve read. Probably some book about Bigfoot or something when I was younger. It’s not even that I don’t like the creature features, but more that my tastes usually lay in a more reality-centered realm, where there are far more serial killers and devil-worshippers than there are monsters hiding in the dark. So leave it to Adam Cesare (Video Night, The Summer Job, and one of … Continue reading

Here, we’ll be going with the title In the Land of Cannibals, which is simply a translation of the Italian title, Nella terra dei cannibali. But, much like the director, … Continue reading

Film Review: American Guinea Pig: Bouquet of Guts and Gore (2014)


SYNOPSIS: Japan’s darkest secret has become America’s newest nightmare REVIEW: If you’re reading this review, you’re no doubt already familiar with the legendary Guinea Pig films from Japan. If not, long story short, they’re a group of hardcore gore films from Japan, made in the 1980’s, definitely not for the squeamish, that pretty set new standards for how disturbing and depraved a horror film can be. The story of Charlie Sheen contacting the FBI regarding … Continue reading

Film Review: A Gun for Jennifer (1997)


SYNOPSIS: A woman comes to New York City from Ohio to escape an abusive husband and gets entangled with murderous female vigilantes who prey on abusive men.

With most of the films in the subgenre, about the first two-thirds of the movie … Continue reading

Film Review: Knochenwald (2000)


REVIEW: If there’s one thing that drives me crazy, it’s when people get down on independent, shot on video movies for not looking enough like Titanic, or not having as good of acting as Twilight, or not being written as well as Battlefield Earth (ask me on a different day, you’re liable to get a whole list of other answers as to what the “one thing” is that drives me crazy). It’s especially unnerving when … Continue reading

But they are not alone – serial killer Max Seed is back and he brought the whole family.

Film Review: Ilsa the Tigress of Siberia (1977)


YNOPSIS: Erotic adventure in Siberia. REVIEW: Poor Ilsa (you haven’t heard that very often, have you?). I feel like, deep down, all she’s ever tried to do was prove that women can be as strong as, if not stronger than, men. It’s a valiant enough goal, but I think the problem lays in her methods. Running a Nazi prison camp, a slavery ring, and an abusive women’s prison, while simultaneously trying to essentially take over … Continue reading

About seanofthedead

Sean has had a few short stories published and a few punk records recorded. If you watch a horror movie with him, he'll drive you crazy connecting the actors to their other movies and dropping useless bits of trivia. He thinks the Exorcist III is by far the superior film of the franchise, and believes Braindead was more deserving of an Oscar than Lord of the Rings.
