Film Review: Mutilations (1986)

Mutiliations-1986-movie-Larry-Thomas.-3

SYNOPSIS:

A High School Science Field Trip is stalked by an Alien!

REVIEW:

The most fascinating films come from artists who pour their heart and soul into a project only to have the final product be a colossal mess. They spend all of that time making their vision come to life only for it to be realized as a monstrosity. Nothing seems to work properly in the film yet it all comes together … Continue reading

Film Review: Killer Legends (2014)

Killer-Legends-Josh-Zeman-2014-movie-3

SYNOPSIS:

A documentary team looks at the true origins of common urban legends in America.

REVIEW:

If you grew up losing sleep over episodes of UNSOLVED MYSTERIES—and, strangely, remember the experience fondly (I did), then KILLER LEGENDS is the movie for you. It is wonderfully sensationalist, replete with eerie piano music and gritty stock footage.

The real events, which, in turn, urban legends grow out of are way scarier than the myths … Continue reading

Zombie films have always been fairly popular. From the old classics like George A. Romero’s Dawn of the Dead (1978) to Danny Boyle’s 28 Days Later (2002), for some reason those flesh-eating folk always … Continue reading

Film Review: Kill Zombie! (2012)

Kill-Zombie-Bluray

SYNOPSIS:

The bizarre story takes place in Amsterdam-West, where a virus turns people into bloodthirsty zombies. Although much blood is flowing and many limbs chopped off, there is a lot to laugh at in this bizarre horror comedy.
