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. With a central connective story involving a conversation between a feminine voice and a Raven in a cemetery, it is insinuated that the voice is that of one of the statues.  As she continues to go on from…

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. Don’t Hang Up decently recreates smart horror in more of a reproduction than homage but what movie is not a duplicate from the story that preceded it? Two high…

Creepshow Documentary: Just Desserts

Horror Anthologies bring together separate short films into a larger landscape to create one cohesive frightfest for the delight of the fans, there have been many great ones over the years but none can compare to the legacy of Creepshow. In 2007 a documentary was released called Just Desserts: The Making of Creepshow revealing some of…

Evil meets Evil: Sadako v Kayako

Epic battles are a staple fascination in culture, not only in real life but in fiction as well, for years fervent horror fans called for the ultimate battle between Jason Vorhees and Freddy Krueger to finally decide who will be the king of slashers. We received in my opinion a well displayed slasher with a…

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. Howard Lovecraft put it best when said “Searchers after horror haunt strange, far places.”…

Irish Lore In The Hallow

There were two movies released in 2015 with very similar names, one was called The Hallow and the other The Hollow. One movie was over shlocky completely saturated with unbelievable CGI and a horrendously incomprehensible plot, the other was an amazing English-Irish production about a family tormented by ecological monsters from ancient celtic lore seeking…

Europa’s Sea Monster

In Arthur C. Clarke’s  2010: Odyssey Two, Jupiter’s dense atmosphere ignites turning the giant into a small star, this concept is not far off from many ideas that NASA has about our solar system’s 5th planet from the sun. It is believed and theorized that Jupiter is a failed star leading many to speculate that…

Critters Ate The Farm

Carnivorous space hedgehogs armed with poisonous spikes and an insatiable appetite escape from an intergalactic prison, travel to earth and attack an unsuspecting family of farmers with space bounty hunters hot on their trail. Sounds like a standard 80’s schlock creature feature, and it was, but it also symbolized the pinnacle of 80’s  horror classics….
