The Station

ORDER DVD A remote frozen station of scientists discover something in the ice that first strikes their resident dog before then preying on them in all its twisted, unnatural forms. Yeah, John Carpenter’s The Thing is great movie. And apparently the makers of Austrian horror The Station thought so, too, because that is also the […]

Everyone Must Die

ORDER DVD Without having done extensive research online I’d wager that I wouldn’t be the first to follow the title of this film with the words “starting with the people who made this film!”. Like I’ve said on previous occasions, if only films could be reviewed on the basis on the enthusiasm of the filmmakers […]

Pop Skull

ORDER DVD For Daniel (Lane Hughes) life is at a crossroads. His existence in blue collar Alabama suffered a huge body blow when he was dumped by his girlfriend Natalie (Maggie Henry). While she is off with her new actor boyfriend, Daniel seeks solace in over-the-counter drugs and pills. Unfortunately for Daniel, the self-medication backfires. […]

Caesar & Otto’s Deadly Xmas

ORDER DVD A low budget entry into the comedy horror stakes, this is part of a continuing series of flicks starring Caesar and Otto, all of which take a stab at the horror genre but with genuine love and understanding. With Deadly Xmas they’ve dragged in (or dusted off) Linnea Quigley, Brinke Stevens, Felissa Rose, […]

Sanguivorous

 ORDER DVD Billed as the first Japanese avant-garde, vampire silent film, Sanguivorous, directed by Naoki Yoshimoto, is a dark, disturbing film based on the premise of a young girl (Ayumi Kakizawa) unknowingly descended from a lineage of vampires whose own vampiristic tendencies emerge with the onset of a 2000 year old curse. Unfortunately it is her […]

Puppet Master V

ORDER DVD I always thought Jeff Burr would’ve had more success within the genre, From A Whisper To A Scream was a solid anthology flick that I thought showed a lot of promise at what Burr had to offer. Burr however just ended up helming a bunch of sequels such as Leatherface, Stepfather II, and Pumkinhead II. I’m fairly fond […]

Penance

ORDER DVD There’s been quite a lot of found footage/shaky cam kinda flicks recently some good and some bad. I’ve personally enjoyed the recent crop of films such as [REC], Cloverfield and Diary Of The Dead. The subgenre was becoming a bit over saturated and tired for my liking but then along came Paranormal Activity which really impressed me and although […]

Paura: Lucio Fulci Remembered Volume 1

ORDER DVD Lucio Fulci is a household name among horror fans thanks to a large body of work including classics of the genre such as The Beyond, New York Ripper, City Of The Living Dead and his biggest box office success Zombie. Fulci dabbled in several different genres including fantasy (Conquest) and comedy (Young Dracula) before finding his […]

Patrick

ORDER DVD Along with Brain De Palma Richard Franklin is a director who wears his Hitchcock influence on his sleeve, which depending on your point of view is either a good or bad thing. Personally I dig both these directors’ work watching their films more often than Hitch’s probably due to my love of all […]

Dollman

ORDER DVD Albert Pyun dropped some great flicks on the laps of me and my fellow trash fiends including one of my favourite fantasy films The Sword and the Sorcerer. During the late 80s and early 90s he was at his peak with flicks like Cyborg, Bloodmatch and the completely underrated Kickboxer 2 (gimme this […]

Descendents

ORDER DVD Foreign horror films have certainly been enjoying a more prominent place in the spotlight in recent years with several countries showing they have the chops to slug it out with the US studios by producing some of the better horror flicks of the last 10 years. Spain really hit the ball out of […]

Demonic Toys

ORDER DVD Full Moon are notorious for their low budget “so bad it’s good” (and in some cases just unbelievably fucking shit) flicks and along with Troma they are the kings of this particular style of filmmaking… if you could call it that. There definitely are a lot of Full Moon’s flicks that basically smear […]
