“Rings” Review: aka This Ring Should Be Thrown Into Mt. Doom

Damien Glonek 0
  The following is a true story. In 1999 a friend of mine gave me a VHS tape of a Japanese horror movie called Ringu. He said, “this is pretty good, you should check it out.” I knew nothing of Ringu previously, it wasn’t released in the US yet, but I knew this person to […]

While you might not be aware of it, according to wikipedia 113 horror movies were released last year. […]

I’ll assume it is safe to say that everyone participated in their own Turkey Day Movie Marathon this year? What’s that you ask? You were out shopping on Black Friday instead? For shame. Surely you remember that the real holiday celebrated in November is not that gluttonous meal you attended with your family, but in […]

The movie starts in a fog-filled graveyard at night with some ominous music. A caretaker sees someone with their back turned standing in the distance, he cautiously approaches and taps the person on the shoulder. With a loud scream, the person turns to reveal a hideous zombie face zooming into the camera and the title Children Shouldn't Play with Dead Things appears on the screen.

31 Nights of Halloween Horror part 30: It Follows

Turn that Creep-O-Meter up to 10. Not since Ringu have I seen a movie that has made the hair on my arms stand up. That is not the only thing It Follows has in common with Ringu. They are both movies involving curses with the only way to get rid of them is to pass them on to someone else.

When Starry Eyes hit a couple years ago it was all the rage. I finally got around to checking this flick out to see what the deal was about and it does not disappoint. Tonight we are looking at something much more psychological with Starry Eyes.

Sigh...yeah we are going to do this. Prepare yourself for one of the most vile movies ever and I mean that in a good way. Be warned this is certainly not for everyone and I won't hold it against you if you skip watching this one, but for those of you brave enough...ugh, here we go.

31 Nights of Halloween Horror part 25: The Shining

A true horror classic and in a lot of top ten lists for best and scariest horror film of all time. I have seen this movie plenty of times. The other day though I got to see it in the theatre for the first time and being able to see it on the big screen was probably the best time I have ever seen th

Ah the old monster rapes a woman and woman gives birth to the monster's offspring movie. It occurred to me that we really didn't do any true monster movies this month. So tonight let's unleash The Beast

31 Nights of Halloween Horror part 23: Sodoma’s Ghost

In the late 80s the Italian horror movie market was fast declining along with Fulci’s health. He was still churning out horror films on a yearly basis, but the budgets were drying up and poor Fulci was not left with much to work with, in his post horror hay day ending in 1982 with New York Ripper things would sadly go down hill for Fulci films.
