No matter how nicely Tyler asks, he cannot keep the demons from eating the renters (nor even persuade them to wait a month or two). The demons never listen. And why should they? They have … Continue reading

An archaeological team attempts to unlock the secrets of a lost pyramid only to find themselves hunted by an insidious creature.
It seems odd that a horror movie like The Pyramid would open in December, smack dab in the middle of a slew of prestige films looking for award consideration. Could it be that director Gregory Levassuer & screenwriters Daniel Meersand/Nick Simon believe that their film is worthy of some kind … Continue reading

After twenty-two years of psychiatric care, Norman Bates attempts to return to a life of solitude… but the specters of his crimes — and his mother — continue to haunt him.
The original film (directed by Alfred Hitchcock in 1960) was essentially the first slasher film and, in turn, initiated a new avenue of horror that has, by now, become passĂ© (though, nonetheless, commercially successful). The manipulative nature of Hitchcockâ€™s … Continue reading

A group of actors on an acting retreat in the middle of the woods are stalked and killed by a trio of homicidal brothers.
Iâ€™m always going on and on about all the great slasher flicks that came out of the 1980â€™s but sometimes I forget that there were a lot of terrible ones too. Hollywoodâ€™s New Blood definitely belongs in the bad group as it is quite horrible and has … Continue reading

Five people get lost in a crypt and meet up with a strange crypt keeper who tells them stories of how they died.
Holy Jeebus, I haven’t seen this film since I was a kid. Based on the classic “Tales from the Crypt” and “The Vault of Horror” comics from EC, written by Bill Gaines, Al Feldstein, and Johnny Craig, this 1972 classic horror is sheer cheesy goodness.
This is, as … Continue reading
