REVIEW:

Horror anthology films have been something of a mixed bag throughout the decades. For every Dead Of Night (1945) & Tales From The Crypt (1973) there’s a Creepshow III (2006) or The Monster Club (1981) to make us regret wasting our … Continue reading

Seven high-school friends begin their Euro-trip at the actual castle of Vlad the Impaler where he supposedly sold his soul to the devil over 500 years earlier, but the decrepit castle’s past envelopes them in a bloody ritual.

The Impaler, the name makes you think of only one thing, Vlad the impaler, the man that inspired the famous monster, Dracula. Would this movie do the history of this man’s legend justice, or … Continue reading

Unnoticed-2013-Movie

SYNOPSIS:

A mysterious killer is going around knocking off high school students in a small town.

REVIEW:

By now most of you out there know that I enjoy low budget horror flicks and actually prefer them over their major Hollywood counterparts. Unnoticed was shot on what looks to be a very low budget and while it wasn’t the best movie I’ve ever seen I still enjoyed it for what it was. Having shot a … Continue reading

Ovulation-2013-movie-1

SYNOPSIS:

A desperate woman determined to have a baby goes to some extreme measures (including murder) in order to become pregnant.

REVIEW:

I’m always up for checking out new low budget horror films that are shot on video. Some of them are very good while others leave a lot to be desired, so you never know for sure what you are going to get until you sit down and watch them. I recently watched … Continue reading

Film Review: Nothing Left to Fear (2013)

Nothing-Left-to-Fear-2013-Movie-3

SYNOPSIS:

A family’s journey toward a better life is interrupted by an unstable man of the cloth.

REVIEW:

Despite the fact that the iconic name ‘Slash’ (aka from Guns ‘n’ Roses fame) produced this movie, it turned out to be a fairly average horror film which managed to throw in a couple of scares but nothing ground-breaking. I’ve noticed that over the past few years, along with handheld films, religious horror seems to have … Continue reading

Film Review: The Exorcist (1973) – 40th Anniversary [Blu-ray]

exorcist-40th-bluray-393x500

If this horror classic doesn’t terrify you, maybe you need a shrink. Movie actress Chris MacNeil (Ellen Burstyn) realizes an evil spirit may possess her daughter (Linda Blair). Against formidable odds, two priests (Max von Sydow and Jason Miller) try to exorcise the demon. A superb meditation about the nature of evil, The Exorcist was created with adults in mind and isn’t appropriate for youngsters.

SYNOPSIS:

Alpha Girls is about a Sorority House terrorized by an unholy curse of their own creation.

It doesn’t matter if a film was good or bad but if you had fun while watching it. Alpha Girls isn’t a bad film at all (in fact, it’s quite good), it just really knows how to push buttons and have a good time. The film will most … Continue reading

REVIEW:

Director: Lindsey C. Vickers

During my schooldays, there was this guy I used to hang out with all the time. He was rude, incredibly stubborn, didn’t shower very often and smoked at every available opportunity. And although I still enjoyed his company, I often wondered to myself if he was actually … Continue reading

demon-2013-movie-Rob-Walker-7
