Behind the Mask: The Rise of Leslie Vernon (REVIEW)

If you thought after "Scream," "I Know What You Did Last Summer" and "Urban Legend" that the slasher film couldn't get any more self aware, than you probably haven't seen "Behind the Mask: Rise of Leslie Vernon." If that's the case, I would recommend you go pick it up right now.

Hostel 2 (REVIEW)

Eli Roth made one thing clear over and over while out promoting "Hostel 2", this will not be a rehash of the original "Hostel." In many ways, the man is absolutely right. As a sequel "Hostel: Part II" aims for something a little higher than the original. Surprisingly, it succeeds at many things... if perhaps not all.

Zombie 3 (REVIEW)

WOW... what the hell did I just watch? I ventured into Zombi 3 knowing full well how "bad" it's purported to be. I knew about the directorial problems, bad acting, plot inconsistencies and everything else. But dear horror fan, nothing... and I mean NOTHING could have possibly prepared me for the movie that I just saw. In fact, as the minutes tick by it's becoming harder and harder for me to fathom that what I just saw was real.

The Serpent and the Rainbow (REVIEW)

As a writer/director, Wes Craven has certainly been a hit or miss kind of guy. When he's hitting the mark he's creating genre defining moments like those found in "A Nightmare on Elm St" or "Scream". When he's missing, he's churning out utter shit like "The People Under the Stairs", or even worse, "The Hills Have Eyes Part II". It's this dichotomy that makes Craven such an enigma in the horror genre. Fortunately for me, when I sat down tonight to watch "The Serpent and the Rainbow", I was not disappointed.

The Toolbox Murders (REVIEW)

When it was released in 2003, "The Toolbox Murders" was hailed as a return to form for Tobe Hooper, the sometimes genius, sometimes not-so genius director behind "The Texas Chainsaw Massacre." After blowing the film off for a few years I finally gave it a spin tonight, and after reviewing all of the evidence I must say that I have to concur.
