Curse-of-the-Blue-Lights-1988-movie-6

SYNOPSIS:

A group of teenagers battle a horde of zombies and evil creatures that live underneath a graveyard.

REVIEW:

With the 1980s came the growth of the personal video camera market. With the growth of the market came an influx of low-budget films made by amateur filmmakers who did not have a deep knowledge of how to make films. With this new wave of low-budget films came an abundance of low-budget horror that … Continue reading

If it wasn’t obvious before then it’s plain to see now, Lucky McKee likes to make films with strong, really strong female characters. His outstanding directorial debut, May (2002) is one of my favorite films of … Continue reading

Film Review: Abby (1974)

Abby-1974-movie-William-Girdler-4

SYNOPSIS:

Abby, a wholesome young woman becomes possessed by the Nigerian god, Eshu.

REVIEW:

ABBY is a forgotten blaxploitation gem from the golden age of American International Pictures. Upon its release, it had been remarkably successful, grossing millions (its budget had been under $500,000). But, shortly after its initial run, American International got sued by Warner Bros. for ripping off THE EXORCIST. Warner Bros. won the case, and ABBY, as a result, became … Continue reading

When I say that absolutely nothing makes sense in this movie, I mean it. Absolutely nothing makes sense. Somewhere in all the blabber and gratuitous orgy and pool party scenes, accompanied by 70s’ funky porn … Continue reading

Film Review: Armistice (2013)

Armistice-movie-2013-warhouse-Luke-Massey-5

SYNOPSIS:

A Royal Marine awakens to find himself imprisoned and forced to fight to the death against inhuman opponents again and again.

REVIEW:

War is Hell.  For yours truly, being fortunate enough to never have encountered firsthand what the term “war” encompasses, it took merely my 8th grade English required reading list to bring to light that it isn’t all justified murder and a hero’s welcome home.  The book was Dalton Trumbo’s Johnny … Continue reading

Film Review: The Aztec Box (2013)

The-Aztec-Box-2013-movie-Serge-Bronstein-4

SYNOPSIS:

4 college students dig up an ancient Aztec relic in their own backyard, only to discover a dark force that is attached to it.

REVIEW:

Two things have come along, enabling almost anyone to make a horror movie: changes in technology and the found footage sub-genre. Anymore, all you need is a digital camera, some editing software, a friend with a midi synth, and a screenplay that invokes constant running cameras. Boom. … Continue reading
