We are crossing the border for a creepy little tale from Mexico for tonight's feature. You won't find any wrestling masks here, just the hair standing up on the back of your neck. Get ready because Here Comes the Devil.
Six people, each representing some kind of sin, gluttony, homosexuality, assholism, etc. get an invitation to their 10 year high school reunion. Once there they find out they were the only ones invited and a crazed killer is stalking them. Each person is killed in a variety of creative ways...
Slaughter High encompasses everything I hate about slasher films, but hey some people love them and who am I to judge, I like plenty of Eurotrash films I'm sure no one else can see the value in. I am not going to ridicule this film with the why and logistics of things, but I am going to ruin the ending for you, which really isn't ruining anything because this movie was only made for one reason and that was to have a massive body count.
Half The Exorcist, half Blaxploitation, all Abby. When a movie hits it big like The Exorcist, the independents churn out copy cats and AIP was among the leaders. Successful with their horror and blaxploitation films, Abby combined both genres. Tonight we take a look at the wild world of possession with Abby. The great William "Blacula" Marshall is a preacher archeologist out on a dig in Nigeria, studying the Yoruba religion.
31 Nights of Halloween Horror: Part 13 in a 31 part series. A horror film reviewed, every night for the month of October. Tonight we’re talking about: Session 9 |Dir. Brad Anderson | 2001/USA | 97 mins. I’m not going in there. One of the scariest places to venture into is an old abandoned building, […]
God damn. You know how people say with older movies, "oh this is a classic" just because it is old. Well, let me tell you, The Innocents is a classic. One of the best ghost story movies ever made. If someone gives you their list of top ten ghost movies and this isn't in there, then don't trust them. Tonight I will try and convince you to stop what you're doing and watch The Innocents.
Up to this point, we have been watching a lot of fun horror films. Whether good or bad, bloody or, well they have all been bloody, they were all a good time. Tonight we are going to explore a film that is much more cerebral than anything else we have viewed so far. Tonight's feature comes from a land not very well know for their output of horror, in fact, I don't think I have ever seen a horror film from this country before. Our feature Baskin (translates to Raid) comes all the way from Turkey.
Tonight we are going to take a break from the killers and stalkers, the blood and guts, the victims and terror and discuss a film that while has none of that, is still very much a Halloween movie. Tonight we go black and white and venture once more to the castle up on the hill to visit Mel Brook's Young Frankenstein.
I will do my best to try and explain what happens in this movie, but bear with me as about half way through I tried gouging my eyes out with rusty rail road spikes and stuff my ears with burning coals instead of having to endure the pain of this film any longer.
It’s 1981 and that means more teens in peril. Funhouse uses the excellent location of a traveling carnival as its setting for terror and is directed by Texas Chainsaw Massacre grand poobah Tobe Hooper. Funhouse comes two years after his masterful vampire film Salem’s Lot, and for me was the beginning of the end for Tobe Hooper.
Don’t you love having a preconceived notion about a movie based on its title or poster art and it turns out to be something different. That’s what happened with The Toolbox Murders. I thought it would be another 80's slasher movie about a guy killing girls with tools, and it sort of is, but then it stops and becomes something else. Tonight it’s Tool Time.
