With all the principles and conventions of a basic slasher film adhered to The Slumber Party Massacre seems on the surface an unremarkable piece of 80’s sub genre culture. However, there is no alluding to the fact that this film was written by prominent feminist and American novelist Rita Mae Brown and directed by feel good writer/director Amy Holden Jones (Mystic Pizza, Indecent Proposal). Consequently my presumptions upon viewing this film were …Continue Reading...
Lars Von Trier really wants you to know that Anti-Christ is his film–even before we get the title of the movie, von Trier’s name is written across the screen in a hasty, messy scrawl. Von Trier is known for his punishing, gritty independent films, films in which women are usually subjected to all kinds of horrors: in Breaking the Waves, a spunky Emily Watson had to have sex with random men to …Continue Reading...
Zombie Honeymoon has the distinction of being, as far as I can tell, the only zombie flick based on a true story. No, the shambling undead have not really risen from the sea to leave a gory trail in the sands of the Jersey Shore. However, the overwhelming emotions of young love cut short by unexpected tragic loss is what drove director Dave Gebroe to tell this story. The lead characters are …Continue Reading...
Made only, oh, almost twenty years after the initial biker-exploitation wave of the mid to late sixties, this insane film from Spain and Sweden is still worth a look. I guess this is a combination Spain and Sweden productions, which in my mind should combine Ingmar Bergman and Luis Bunuel. Instead, it’s like the fevered dream of a exceedingly violent biker on acid. It’s so over the top that the violence and …Continue Reading...
Ah, Critters. One of those flicks I grew up with that has not only held up over the years, but I actually enjoy it more now than I did as a kid. It was unfairly declared a Gremlins clone despite director Stephen Herek’s rebuttal of such claims, chalk it up to bad timing I suppose. SadlyGremlins has become the much more popular of the two over the years and while I do think it’s …Continue Reading...
Tagline “Don’t cross him or he’ll cut you down to size”
I usually recommend this film when people ask for a good introduction to Grindhouse or exploitation films. It’s not great, it’s pretty technically inept, and it’s really kind of ludicrous. Still, this film delivers the goods, albeit a little sneakily. The film doesn’t quite live up to the title, which is one of exploitation films finest, but it’s still worth tracking down …
Wes Craven’s first movie, Last House on the Left, begins with an idyllic shot of ducks on a lake, a cozily autumnal country road, and then a shot of a solidly middle-class house. The camera then focuses on a girl, Mari, our main character, as she showers. The camera work here is gauzy and romantic, much like the opening of Brian DePalma’s Carrie, where the camera lingers lovingly on girls’ bodies. In …Continue Reading...
Japanese culture, among the various oddities that have sprung from it are game shows which consist of male contestants being whacked in the genitals and animated pornography, termed “hentai”. They even sell toilet paper with short horror stories printed on it for god knows what reason. This utterly insane culture extends into their films as well, and one doesn’t have to look any further than “Vampire Girl vs. Frankenstein Girl” for an …Continue Reading...
For horror movies, sometimes cheap is good. And Carnival of Souls looks cheap in the best sense of the word—the film has almost no attempts at special effects, and the stark, pared-down settings and scenes lend to the overall effect of creepiness. Like Romero’s Night of Living Dead, black and white film, minimal effects, and minimal settings really work for this movie. And, like Night of the Living Dead, much more …Continue Reading...
There are films that try to be goriest, the most sadistic, and there are films that try to be the scariest. Now, what about films that try to be the filthiest? What happens when a director comes along who decides that they’re going to cross every single line that a filmmaker, outside of snuff and pornography, has ever crossed? Well, when the budget is next to nothing, a director …Continue Reading...

Neil Marshall steps aside, but not completely off the film set, for this much anticipated sequel. The original Descent was directed by Mr. Marshall, and while he’s producing the sequel, the editor of the first installment has given the film a go as director. Even though this is Jon Harris’s directorial debut, expect much of the same in respects to the brutal carnage, claustrophobic dwellings, and fast paced action.

PA made quite an impression on domestic audiences. The film cost $15,000 to shoot in just two weeks. How much did the film gross domestically? A little over 100 million! Well, it turns out that the film is becoming just as huge of a hit overseas. Within its opening week in countries such as the U.K and Germany, it raked in just a little over 35 million at box offices.
So what does …
