The Black Saint is a reasonable saint. I am willing to ignore stupid dialogue & plot holes big enough to drive the space shuttle through if the movie is enjoyable.

You know, when The Black Saint attends movie screenings, he usually attends private ones in small 30-40 seat screening rooms. I abhor waiting in line for anything. Usually the line leads to me and it’s filled … Continue reading

Zombies have never looked so good.

SYNOPSIS:

 A centuries old vampire falls in love with a scruffy pickpocket & transforms her into a creature of the night.

REVIEW:

Ok, here we are. “Where are we” you ask? Well acolytes, we are in the “Twilight Zone”. I don’t mean the classic Rod Serling series of the 60′s though, I wish it were that easy. No, I mean the pithy, sugary sweet & unfathomably (to me) popular series of … Continue reading
