End of Days
Never before has a security personnel had this much unrestrained power. Jericho Cane – a former cop now working in private security – storms through End of Days with less check and balances than the president, entering crime scenes, stealing and hiding evidence from the police and conducting his own investigation of key witnesses without ever more than a cursory comment from the deputy. At the start of a film, Cane hangs off the bottom of a helicopter flying over downtown Manhattan, and towards the end, he stops by his work and leaves toting a grenade launcher. I understand he’s guarding high-risk and/or wealthy individuals, but I’m pretty sure even the president’s secret service doesn’t have access to that type of military-grade weapon (a quick Google search confirms the secret service use primarily pistols, along with some shotguns and submachine guns, but no grenade launchers).Continue Reading...
House on Sorority Row
The 1983 slasher movie House on Sorority Row has pretty much every element you’ve seen in a slasher movie since then: clever-but-unlikely death scenes, girls at various levels of nakedness, the slutty girl/virginal girl combo, and the unstoppable faceless killer who can be everywhere at once. Although it’s completely predictable (with a few nice twists), House on Sorority Row is also incredibly fun–it does what 80’s slasher movies do best–it sells its gore and goofiness with a sense of humor. Although it lacks the real terror and interesting social commentary of Black Christmas (another early sorority house slasher), it’s worth a viewing to see how the college slasher genre invaded popular culture.Continue Reading...
Easter Bunny, Kill! Kill!
Maladjusted characters and plenty of 70s-style sleaze and violence are what make this modern send-up of the classic exploitation film worth a watch, but only if you’re a fan of the genre. Aside from a vague religious theme there isn’t too much going on, but what it lacks in substance it makes up for with some good interplay between its cast of (for lack of a better word) scum – an armed robber, a pedophile, coked-out strippers and an enigmatic homeless man, to name a few. Timothy Muskatell puts on a great performance as Remington, the criminal trying to work his way into the lives of Mindy and her son, and offsets his nasty demeanor with a good dose of humor.Continue Reading...
There is something that is so painfully real about Angela Bettis’s portrayal of May. You could say that there is a little “May” in all of us because May is ambitious, curious, shy (her dominant personality trait), and vengeful. Bettis also gives what is perhaps the best female performance, ever, within any genre of horror. Will her performance be as memorable as Jamie Lee Curtis’s roll in the first Halloween? Probably not…but it deserves to be. I can say this because the character and the life that Bettis brings to May is so real, and three dimensional, that it is impossible not to relate to her on multiple levels. True, we probably felt THAT shy in grade school, but for some people, like May, that shyness never really goes away. Bettis is exactly the female version on myself of when i was in 3rd grade…but really…this film is excellent.Continue Reading...
A link to a nice horror short by Robin Kasparik. It’s gotten much appraise in all the right places and most importantly…it’s kind of creepy! It reminds me of A Drop of Water, a famous Mario Bava short. Enjoy this!
“I think it is really first rate work – direction, designed, acting, all worked.”

Blood and Chocolate
Unquestionably the most exhilarating element of any werewolf film is the transformation into the wolf. The human body as host for the untamed monster that rips its way out of human flesh, developing into a bloodthirsty animal intent on destruction is incredibly terrifying and exhilarating. Unfortunately, this film was billed as a werewolf movie, but with a 12A certificate Blood and Chocolate (Katja von Garnier UK, Germany, Romania 2007) is anything but horror driven. Consequently, what this film suffers from, and what the werewolves seem to strive for is identity. There seems to be confusion as to what genre of film this is, possibly due to the fact that this is based on the book of the same name, written by Annette Curtis Klause with a core audience of young adults and teenagers. Adapted as a screenplay by Ehren Kruger, who also wrote the screenplay for The Ring (USA 2002; Gore Verbinski); it appears to have lost its focus. Is it a teen angst story set against a gothic backdrop or a re-imagined take on Little Red Riding Hood? Either way the focus is on an adolescent female, fighting hormones and her ‘family’.Continue Reading...
One thing is certain about Judith: A Halloween Tribute Short Film– the creative voices behind the film are passionate about John Carpenter’s 1978 horror classic. This short film is a labor of love by director/producer/cameraman Josh Hasty and writer Kenny Caperton. Not only is the unique camera style from the original Halloween replicated, but the entire story is filmed in the same home where the classic film took place. Judith is meant to offer fresh perspective on a very minor, yet important character whose role in the original Halloween was extraordinarily memorable, despite her very minimal screen time. (Warning: minor Halloween spoilers ahead.)Continue Reading...
“If you give a monkey a camera, it will go out there and shoot something” – Ron Atkins
A fitting statement from one of the featured subjects in Horror Business, a documentary on the horror film industry that has a lot of monkeys with cameras, but very few filmmakers. One doesn’t have to be part of mainstream Hollywood to be considered a director, but most of the no-talent hacks showcased within this movie are shooting stuff at the level and with the same amount of care as a high school student shooting their English Media project. There are a few small appearances from accomplished filmmakers involved in the horror business, such as H.G Lewis, Sid Haig and Lloyd Kaufman, but for the most part the featured “directors” don’t stand the slightest chance of ever making it in the horror business this film professes to be about.Continue Reading...
Italian journeyman filmmaker Antonio Margheriti certainly knows how to churn out a decent genre B movie. Like the majority of directors working in popular Italian cinema during the 1960’s, 70’s and 80’s Margheriti (who often used the nom de plume Anthony M. Dawson) had a high degree of skill in switching genres. He’s pretty much done it all – from Mario Bava inspired gothic horror like Horror Castle (1963) and Castle of Blood (1964) to gialli like Naked You Die (1968) and Seven Deaths in the Cats Eye (1973). Outside the horror genre Margheriti has directed science-fiction, spy adventures, sword and sandal peplum adventures, and war films. It is no surprise then that Cannibal Apocalypse which blends several sub-genres is a very enjoyable, confident, efficient, if somewhat mindless B movie that gives the director the opportunity to hone his skills at shooting action sequences.Continue Reading...
