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

Film Review: Slaughter Daughter (2012)

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

Night-of-the-Demons-bluray

SYNOPSIS:

A group of horny and rebellious teenagers are going to Angela’s Halloween party at creepy Hull House. They engage in a little séance that brings out the evil and all hell breaks loose!

REVIEW:

“Night of the Demons” sat among many of campy but fun films of the eighties. It was later remade in 2010 under the direction of Adam Gierasch, though it was Kevin Tenney who really laid the cultish groundwork for … Continue reading

REVIEW:

When sitting down to watch a movie called Chilling Visions: 5 Senses in Fear, the mind races at what this could possibly be about, and if you take the title for it’s most literal meaning, then it tells you plain out. This movie is about the five senses, with … Continue reading

Film Review: Phantoms (1998)

Phantoms-1998-Movie-4

SYNOPSIS:

150 dead and 350 missing in the tiny mountain town of Snowfield, Colorado. And that’s only the beginning…

REVIEW:

“Phantoms” is sort of a guilty pleasure. It’s a film I’ve seen several times, not merely due to the content, but to the fact that it attracted a pretty stellar cast in their earlier careers. I’m pretty certain you wouldn’t find Ben Affleck taking on a mid level horror role these days, but … Continue reading

Film Review: Ritual (2013)

Ritual-Mickey-Keating-movie-2013-3

SYNOPSIS:

After receiving a distressed phone call, a man arrives at a seedy highway motel to find that his estranged wife has killed a stranger who is connected to a dangerous cult.

REVIEW:

A man.  A woman.  A seedy motel room.  A dead body.  This scenario has launched so many entertainments throughout the years, it’s hard to imagine where it originated.  Was it born within the pulp fiction pages of the early twentieth century, … Continue reading
