Aliens-1986-Movie-1

SYNOPSIS: The planet from Alien has been colonized, but contact is lost. This time, the rescue team has impressive firepower, but will it be enough? REVIEW: Ahh…1986, what a fine year it was.

And what expectations it brought along with it! No … Continue reading

Film Review: Child’s Play (1988)

childs-play-1988-movie-3

SYNOPSIS: Young Andy Barclay gets the doll he wanted. However, he did not know it was alive! REVIEW: I might have mentioned in the past that there are only a couple of things that actually scare me moviewise. One of them is demonic possession, I don’t dig flicks that deal with possession. Ever since “The Exorcist” traumatized me as a child in 73′ I try to stay away from those type of movies although I … Continue reading

Cold-Sweat-Sudor-Frio-(2010)-banner

SYNOPSIS: Any Drop Could Be Your Last… REVIEW: What’s that you say? What kind of a synopsis is that? What the heck is “Cold Sweat” about you ask? The Black Saint was kinda confused as well as this new thriller from Argentina began. But as it progressed, I found out that at it’s heart it’s just a fun but overall stupid little movie that tries a little too hard to entertain us. Let me explain.. … Continue reading

Top 10 Films for 2011 | Black Saint List

Drive-2011

It has been a interesting year for horror/sci-fi films this year. In my opinion, it’s been something of a down year for genre films. There have been some really good films released this year but by & large I think the bad ones far outweighed the good ones. I even scrambled to watch “The Orphan Killer” & “The Woman” in the last few days because of all the positive press both had received & I … Continue reading

I have emerged from my mausoleum to take in a movie that’s actually not geared towards the young folk!

Interview: Sierra Holmes (Scream Queen Campfire, Scream Queens)

Sierra-Holmes-scream-queen-6

The title “Scream Queen” became popular in the late 70′s & is still popular today. But in actuality they’ve been around since the fifties, they just weren’t given the title of “Scream Queen”. Beverly Garland (The Alligator People), Mara Corday (Tarantula) & Yvette Vickers (Attack Of The Killer Leeches) are perfect examples of actresses who became very familiar to moviegoers in the fifties & sixties who frequented horror/sci-fi films. The tradition continued through the sixties … Continue reading
