Cannibal-Campout-1988-movie-Tom-Fisher6

SYNOPSIS:

Four teens drive their van deep into the woods for an intimate party when they are attacked by a trio of backwoods cannibals.

REVIEW:

“Soup’s On”

When you think of cannibal movies from the 1980’s, you may think of Cannibal Holocaust, Cannibal Ferox, or even Anthropophagus, but you may not think of Cannibal Campout.   Most likely, this would be due to the fact that this is an ultra-low budget independent film created by … Continue reading

SYNOPSIS:

Tonia goes out drinking. She wakes up in prison, not having a clue why she’s there. She is tortured to encourage her to confess to a crime she is not aware of.

REVIEW:

Polish director Ryszard Bugajski’s 1989 film, Interrogation (or Przesluchanie), is not so much a horror movie as it is one great big metaphor. It was originally filmed in 1982 (when most of the country was under martial law), but … Continue reading

Krull-1983-movie--Peter-Yates-(7)

SYNOPSIS:

A prince and a fellowship of companions set out to rescue his bride from a fortress of alien invaders who have arrived on their home planet.

REVIEW:

In 1983, Ron Silverman produced a British-American directed by Peter Yates called Krull.

It lacked a certain charisma inherent in beloved fantasy films made timeless … Continue reading

Even big names Kate Beckinsale and Luke Wilson couldn’t save this anti-climactic steaming pile of crap. The premise seems like a good recipe for potential terror: An estranged couple finds themselves entrapped in a diabolical scheme to produce … Continue reading

Film Review: Identity (2003)

Identity-2003-movie-6


SYNOPSIS:

Stranded at a desolate Nevada motel during a nasty rainstorm, ten strangers become acquainted with each other when they realize that they’re being killed off one by one.

REVIEW:

The 2003 theatrical debut of “Identity” was a slam dunk for movie plotlines. I remember seeing this one live and thinking, “wow! what a brilliant film that I couldn’t wait to tell others about”. Maybe it’s “Identity’s” intricate approach to storytelling or … Continue reading
