Film Review: Slink (2013)

Slink-2013-Movie-Film-3

SYNOPSIS:

In the rural town of Wickenhaven, a psychotic tanning salon owner is responsible for the disappearances of many young, innocent girls, while his wife, an exotic purse designer, is willing to overlook his evil nature.

REVIEW:

Slink, the word brings the imagination into full force.  What could it mean, a slasher film where they slink around, methodically stalking their pray? Could it be the name of an interstellar conquer coming to enslave … Continue reading

Film Review: One Dark Night (1983)

One-Dark-Night-1983-Movie-film-9

SYNOPSIS:

As part of an initiation into a club called the Sisters, a young girl must spend the night in a mausoleum.

REVIEW:

At a quick glance, One Dark Night might be mistakenly lumped in with Phantasm (1979) as more evil funeral home fun. Given its general premise, it could also be assumed that this is another low budget slasher knock-off. Again, that would be a mistake. One Dark Night is truly one … Continue reading

Film Review: The Demons of Ludlow (1983)

The-Demons-of-Ludlow-1983-movie-2

SYNOPSIS:

A murderous demon lurks inside an antique piano in a picturesque coastal town.

REVIEW:

I had never heard of The Demons of Ludlow before writing this review and having seen it, I’m not surprised at all. This was one bad movie; if I did things on a five-star system, this would get one star and that’s only because one might wring joy from this thing provided they are well stocked with alcohol or … Continue reading

Film Review: Apartment 1303 (2012)

Apartment-1303-2012-Movie-7

SYNOPSIS:

A modern ghost story which turns a love/hate relationship between mother and daughter into a tale of horror. Some rentals are too good to be true.

REVIEW:

With some films you start to wonder what people were thinking, what meetings took place and decisions were made that result in the finished production. Apartment 1303 (I’m going to ignore the 3D bit) is one of the dullest horror films I have ever seen. There … Continue reading

Film Review: Invitation to Hell (1984)

Invitation-to-Hell-Wes-Craven-1984-Movie-5

SYNOPSIS:

A family moves to a suburban town only to be coerced into joining a suspicious club.

REVIEW:

Less than five minutes into Invitation to Hell, we see a distracted limousine driver cruising through the parking lot of a posh country club where he accidentally runs over a glamorously attired and dramatically coiffed woman. Has she been killed? Hardly. Director Wes Craven (yes, that Wes Craven) isn’t going to kill off his Special Guest … Continue reading

Film Review: Halloween (1978)

halloween-bluray

SYNOPSIS:

The first flick in the trilogy from director John Carpenter, Halloween almost single-handedly invented the 1980s slasher genre. Escaped lunatic Michael Myers (no, not the Austin Powers actor) goes on a murderous baby-sitter-slaying rampage on Halloween. Only baby sitter Jamie Lee Curtis (the quintessential scream queen) and psychiatrist Donald Pleasence can stop him.
