Film Review: Near Dark (1987)

Near-Dark-1987-movie-1

SYNOPSIS: A young man reluctantly joins a travelling “family” of evil vampires, when the girl he’d tried to seduce is part of that group. REVIEW: One of the top vampire themed films ever created, “Near Dark” often sits in a class of its own. Far from the traditional aspects, void of romanticism, and even more of a cult film than some of the more predictable vampire films, “Near Dark” is a creation that has lasted … Continue reading

The-Lost-Boys-1987-movie-3

REVIEW: Up all night, Sleep all day, this 1980’s American teen classic directed by Joel Schumacher, spins a horror story depicting a pack of bike riding blood thirsty vampires led by David (Kiefer Sutherland). Everyone who knows me knows I am a Sucker, no pun intended, for a good Vampire movie. “Lost Boys” does not disappoint. This … Continue reading

Film Review: A Return to Salem’s Lot (1987)

A-Return-to-Salems-Lot-1987-movie-1

SYNOPSIS: A man and his son vacation to the quiet vampire populated town of Salem’s Lot. REVIEW: Hollywood has been doing a far better job with its sequels in recent years by maintaining production levels, story continuity and recasting actors. Audiences are given a better movie experience and Hollywood is rewarded with higher grosses, but this wasn’t always the case. Many poorly conducted sequels that feel like a different movie entirely, and are often worse … Continue reading

SYNOPSIS: A race of space vampires arrive in London and infect the populous. REVIEW: Director – Tobe Hooper Starring – Steve Railsback, Mathilda May, Peter Firth If you’ve never seen this movie it’s the one with the nude space vampires. Well, at least one nude space vampire that is worth mentioning and her name is Space Girl (played by the absolutely stunning Mathilda May).

Fright-Night-1985-movie-7

SYNOPSIS: When a teenager learns that his next door neighbour is a vampire, no one will believe him. REVIEW: Director – Tom Holland Starring – Chris Sarandon, William Ragsdale, Amanda Bearse, Roddy McDowall, Stephen Geoffreys This gem of a horror movie came out in 1985 and at the time was a welcome breath of fresh air. Until then, the screen was starting to become dominated by the ever popular splatter genre (in all honesty my … Continue reading

Film Review: Blade (1998)

blade-1998-movie-wesley-snipes-5

SYNOPSIS: A half-vampire, half-mortal man becomes a protector of the mortal race, while slaying evil vampires. REVIEW: 1998 was a good year for Welsey Snipes. Quickly igniting an all-around action hero, his role as Blade sparked a franchise with a hit debut. Wesley brought the right mix of marital arts, cool demeanor and a no apology ass-kicking into his comic book character-turned-film franchise. Blade went on to inspire 2 more sequels and a short-lived TV … Continue reading

Fangs

Fangs_clip_image002

Fangs have historically been the center piece of most fictional characters. Vampires, werewolves and monsters all have them. Different size fangs and fang positions have existed throughout literature/theatrical history. Fangs create the image of wild beasts such as bears, lions and wolves that we as humans have been fearful of for centuries. Any type of fang has been a warning sign that that animal is carnivorous with us potentially being its next meal! So fangs … Continue reading

ABVHcover

Actually the project has been casting up for a couple weeks now but to be quite honest the news has been well, rather dull.  Director Timur Bekmambetov has chosen to go with a cast of pretty much unknowns but tonight came the news that he’s cast the role of Mary Todd Lincoln and I think fans will like this one. Robin McLeavy will take the role and rumor has it that she beat out Mary … Continue reading

David Slade Set To Pilot THE DEMETER

sladevampirepic

David Slade is no stranger to the vampire genre, actually his name is synonymous with them of late mainly because hit last two films were about the bloodsuckers. Sure, one of them was a TWILIGHT movie but it did make a butt load of money.  The other of course was 30 DAYS OF NIGHT which I personally like a whole bunch.  Seems Mr. Slade is done with the “tweenie” horror is as going to be … Continue reading
