Bone Tomahawk Review

October 28, 2015 // 0 Comments

This is a hell of a year for Kurt Russel fans. Not having done a western of any kind since Tombstone, 2015 will see him star in two oaters, this being the first, and the second one being QT’s upcoming ‘Hateful 8’. Bone Tomahawk (a truly great title) is billed as a genre-crossing horror western, although I would say that’s really only [...]

Nosferatu Review

October 26, 2015 // 0 Comments

While far be it from me to condone direct theft/plagiarism, I will say here, that even though this movie was a direct rip-off of Bram Stroker’s Dracula, as a motion picture, it remains superior to any subsequent attempt to film the Dracula story, even to this day. This is another review from the big 50-pack horror movie box set I bought a few [...]

Army of Darkness Review

October 25, 2015 // 0 Comments

At the end of Evil Dead 2 Ash, (who while not killing the undead demonic hordes of the world is a humble retail sales associate at S-Mart) jumped into this time vortex thingy-what-have-you or whatever and it transported him back to medieval times where he must use his cunning badassedry to help save a simple people from the evil that lurks among [...]

Evil Dead 2 Review

October 24, 2015 // 0 Comments

Still trapped in the same cabin from part one, Ash, the sole survivor from last time out, still finds himself battling the undead. To keep things interesting a few interlopers and visitors pop up here and there, but mostly, this is Ashley’s inner-badass coming out party bay-bay. Evil Dead 2 is the film most people think of when they think of the [...]

The Evil Dead Review

October 23, 2015 // 0 Comments

As we get nearer to Halloween, I was struggling to think of more horror titles to fit in with the QDR series when the ‘Evil Dead’ franchise popped in my head. This works as a double tie-in with the Halloween season, plus the new TV series starting this fall starring none other than Mr. Bruce Campbell in the role that only he can play. My [...]

The Little Shop of Horrors Review

October 22, 2015 // 0 Comments

I’m a sucker for old Roger Corman flicks and other such “D-Movie” shenanigans, but this movie was just a really lazy and rushed affair. I’m not one to normally harp on the superiority of remakes, but the 1986 musical version of this story is superior in just about every way. I found this flick as part of a big collection of horror movies [...]

The Final Girls Review

October 20, 2015 // 2 Comments

If I tell you this movie is like Scream filtered through the world of Last Action Hero, I will have given you the premise of this movie, but will have told you nothing about its heart. This movie is a parody of the classic 80s slasher genre, but, as strange as it may sound, a good natured and emotionally poignant one that clearly wears its’ [...]

Halloween: Resurrection Review

October 19, 2015 // 0 Comments

This is without a doubt the laziest of all the Halloween movies. Even part three, as misguided as it was, at least tried to be creative. Halloween: Resurrection can’t be bothered with the formalities of either the franchise it represents or decent storytelling in general. For the past half dozen or so flicks, Michael Myers sole reason for [...]

Halloween H20 Review

October 18, 2015 // 0 Comments

With a title like ‘Halloween H20’ featuring a mass murderer stalking a college campus I wish I could say this movie was about Michael Myers stalking the campus of South Central Louisiana State University doing battle with Bobby Boucher (Adam Sandler) with Bobby’s mom (Kathy Bates) taking over the Donald Pleasance role of reminding us that [...]

Halloween 6: The Curse of Michael Myers Review

October 17, 2015 // 0 Comments

I am reviewing the director’s cut here, which is the first time I have seen it—I would like to go back and see the original theatrical now for comparison’s sake, but I’ll save that for a later review. This is the first Halloween movie I was old enough to see as a kid, and being a young horror fan back then, I found it pretty gnarly. [...]
