It takes a lot for a horror movie to disgust me. I like gore. I like blood. I like violence. I think that gore and blood and violence satisfy a human need to see what’s really happening inside our bodies, to see what’s taboo. But to this day, Deadgirl is one of the few horror movies that has truly disgusted me. Maybe this disgust could have worked for the film, could have …Continue Reading...
David Ondaatje’s first feature, The Lodger, is somewhat of an unfortunate undertaking. Even though it claims to be a modern adaptation of Marie Belloc Lowndes’ novel rather than a remake of the 1927 Hitchcock film, it is still treading on the same ground as the Master of Suspense and because of that there are certain expectations. Expectations that are sadly never met as a suspense film or even a film in general. …Continue Reading...
Let’s face it; like telephones and road maps, cinematic vampires have undergone some radical transformations since the days when Bela Lugosi winked at his audiences with, “I never drink… wine.” While the decade following the Millennium has seen us grow totally comfortable with the technological wonder of iPhones and GPS navigation systems, most bloodsucker movies have actually regressed somewhat, having lost the well-established mojo that made them one of the most intriguing …Continue Reading...
Anthony Armstrong’s short tale of a modern day doppelganger started its screen life as a 25 minute episode of Alfred Hitchcock Presents. The great Hitchcock himself took the directorial duties for the episode. A short story translates particularly well to the anthology format, and often suffers when expanded to feature length. The feature long adaptation The Man Who Haunted Himself naturally suffers from padding as a result of this translation, but still …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...
First off, I’m a huge fan of haunted house flicks: The Haunting, The Changeling, and The Shining are all films that rest upon the peak of haunted horror greatness. Robert Wise’s original film is a masterwork of chills and mystery, but really, most of the success of the truest of haunted house flicks lies in the directors’ ability to personify the house itself; Wise’s film is no different, and it is my …Continue Reading...
Before he went Hollywood with The Dead Zone, David Cronenberg made some extremely cold and cerebral low-budget horror films in his home country of Canada. The Brood isn’t his best earlier film, but it’s the movie where he steps up with the theme that he took to extremes throughout the 80’s and early 90’s: the horror of what’s inside our bodies and what our bodies are capable of when pushed to their …Continue Reading...
“They’re coming to get you, Barbara!”
With that strangely memorable sound bite, screenwriter John A. Russo and director George A. Romero redefined a genre and permanently laid to rest the living, breathing, voodoo-empowered zombies depicted in the 1932 independent film, White Zombie. Night of the Living Dead lurched into theaters on October 1st, 1968. Almost 40 years and five sequels later, the creatures born of Russo and Romero’s collaboration continue to be the …
If 1977’s hallucinogenic and hyperbolic shocker Suspiria was as close as Italian director Dario Argento could get to a nightmare on celluloid, then the sequel, 1980’s Inferno is even more difficult to pin down because of its disavowal of any recourse to logic. Although Inferno continues the exploration of the mythical Three Mothers, it manages to have an illogical internal structure all of its own. This is Argento’s most unique production. Inferno takes narrative incoherence …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...

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 …
