REVIEW:

I’ve said it  before.  One would be damning 97% of all horror films in existence if a lack of original content alone was enough to warrant unfavorable judgement.  After all, there are so many other areas in which our beloved genre can royally muck … Continue reading

Film Review: Nutbag (2000)

Nutbag-2000-Movie-6

SYNOPSIS:

A serial killer stalks prostitutes on the mean streets of Las Vegas.

REVIEW:

It is sometimes said that in an author’s first work, he or she often ends up spinning a highly personal and highly autobiographical tale as their inexperience can cause them to (inadvertently) fall back on what they know. I don’t know how this theorem translates over to film, but let’s hope Nutbag is all the product of the director’s … Continue reading

Film Review: Darkman (1990)

Darkman-bluray

SYNOPSIS:

A hideously scarred and mentally unstable scientist seeks revenge against the crooks who made him like that.

REVIEW:

You might remember this one from its tag line at the time “Who is Dark Man?”. If not, you surely know it from its ominous poster art that looks like a cross between the “The Shadow“, “Batman” and the “Invisible man“. This 1990 dark comedy action film was an earlier creation by none other … Continue reading

Slaughter-Daughter-2012-movie.-Travis-Campbell-6

SYNOPSIS:

A former beauty queen plots the death of her overbearing mother with the help of her pen-pal, a serial killer on death row.

REVIEW:

The resurgence of exploitation cinema has been met with mixed emotions and certainly mixed reviews.  From Grindhouse releases to the lesser-known (and in this humble opinion, better) works of Richard Griffin and the wonky Canadian outfit Astron 6, it seems the midnight … Continue reading
