The mockumentory WHAT WE DO IN THE SHADOWS is gearing up for its big Sundance premiere and they’ve made what I consider to be a very wise choice and have teamed up with those crazy bastards at FUNNY OR DIE to get the word out about their project. I think it bodes well for the film since FUNNY OR DIE isn’t going to associate itself with a known stinker and they are going to going … Continue reading

They … Continue reading

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.

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.

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
