Film Review: American Gothic (1988)

American-Gothic-1988-movie-1

SYNOPSIS:

On a lonely island in the Pacific Northwest, a group of travelers find themselves targeted by a crazed, homicidal family.

REVIEW:

This 1988 release is not to be confused with the TV series by the same name. The title of the film is taken from the famous painting by Grant Wood. The original VHS cover also makes a parody of that painting replacing the charcters with actors from the … Continue reading

The-Darkest-Hour-banner


SYNOPSIS:
In Moscow, five young people lead the charge against an alien race who have attacked Earth via our power supply.

REVIEW:

Lo & behold! I have emerged from my mausoleum to take in a movie that’s actually not geared towards the young folk! There’s been a lot of kiddie fare gracing the big screen as of late & The Black Saint has been bombarded by the likes of … Continue reading

Wow, I hate to give a great director a bad review on his latest release. Though to be quite frank, this film should have been named “Don’t Be Afraid of the Movie”.

Now the correct … Continue reading

Bloodsucking-Nazi-Zombies-oasi-of-the-zombies-movie-8

An expedition searching for treasure supposedly buried by the German army in the African desert during WW II comes up against an army of Nazi zombies guarding the fortune

REVIEW:

“Oasis of the Zombies” (1981) (sometimes referred to as “The Treasure of the Living Dead”) is one of those films that you’ve probably heard about, but never seen. There’s good reason for that. An expedition looking for treasure in Africa runs … Continue reading

Clear-Lake-WI-2009-movie-1

SYNOPSIS:

“Clear Lake, WI” is very much what fans would expect from a psychological thriller starring the one-and-only, Michael Madsen.

paranormal-Haunting-Curse-of-Blue-Moon-Inn-movie-4

SYNOPSIS:

Some people flock to the Blue Moon Inn for a special event (watching the moon turn blue? I guess these people don’t get out much and as a result it doesn’t take a lot to amaze them) that only takes place every 100 years. Once they arrive at the supposedly haunted inn all sorts of bizarre and unexplainable events begin to take place and people start behaving oddly, disappearing, and … Continue reading

Film Review: Blade (1998)

blade-1998-movie-wesley-snipes-5


SYNOPSIS:

A half-vampire, half-mortal man becomes a protector of the mortal race, while slaying evil vampires.

REVIEW:

1998 was a good year for Welsey Snipes. Quickly igniting an all-around action hero, his role as Blade sparked a franchise with a hit debut. Wesley brought the right mix of marital arts, cool demeanor and a no apology ass-kicking into his comic book character-turned-film franchise. Blade went on … Continue reading

Film Review: Little Deaths (2011)

Little-Deaths-movie-2011-2

SYNOPSIS:

Composed of three disturbingly sensual and terrifying short narratives, unified by the twin themes of sex and death.

REVIEW:

Out of the UK comes a pretty edgy anthology featuring 3 shorter pieces dealing directly with sex and death. The shorts feature some top notch story-telling elevating it slightly above others of its genre by not holding back on the erotically deviant content. I was surprised with the … Continue reading
