Modern Vintage Horror: Eyes Of My Mother

Death Is Policy In The Belko Experiment

The Belko Experiment is “Lord Of The Flies” meets “Cube” in this absolute assault on human decency.

Scourge Of The Outback:Razorback

If you follow my blog it’s clear that I consider the 80’s the Golden Age of Horror, I am a huge fan of practical effects as well as giant monsters in the “Natural Horror” genre and the 1980’s was abundant with both. There is a film that without question  clearly holds all these qualities,an Ozploitation…

Poe’s Extraordinary Tales of Horror

Five of Edgar Allan Poe’s best poems are transformed into artistic perfection in this beautifully designed movie.

Don’t Hang Up Review

In the age of Saw it is difficult to make a well constructed smart horror, the eight sequels have failed  adding nothing more than gore porn.

Knock…Don’t Knock Twice

Don’t Knock Twice is a modern reinvention of bloody mary, similar to how Candyman created it’s own urban myth this English film could be a considered a fairy tale of witches and demons with an urban legend ambiance. Chloe seeks refuge with her estranged mother Jess played by Katee Sackhoff, (Oculus, Battlestar Galactica) her friend…

Oculus: The Eye From Hell

To say horror fans are divisive on movies would be an understatement, though sometimes we may disagree on what is considered good or crap I think it should be remembered and understood  what matters is our shared enthusiasm for the genre.
