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.

Cannibal Holocaust (REVIEW)

The only thing more shocking to me after having just watched "Cannibal Holocaust" than the images contained within has got to be how damn good the movie actually is, even almost 30 years after it's original release. Ruggero Deodato, the man responsible for this film, has refused to state that he was actually trying to make some type of social commentary when he directed it back in 1979. I find this fact incredibly puzzling, mainly because I picked up an undeniably strong social message without having any prior awareness that there was one.

Altered (REVIEW)

After finally getting a chance to sit down and check out Eduardo Sanchez's "Altered," I have to say I'm more than a little shocked that I didn't heart more about it in the horror community upon it's release. The co-creator of the Blair Witch Project went way out on a limb here and from what I just saw, succeeded with almost everything he was trying to do.

The Descent (REVIEW)

"The Descent," the new film by "Dog Soldiers" director Niel Marshall, centers on a group of young thrill seeking women who get together every year for various "extreme" activities such as cave exploring and mountain climbing. In the opening scene, we witness the tail end of one such gathering, and a tragic accident that befalls one of the women on the way home. One year later, with their interpersonal relationships forever altered as a result of said tragedy, the women reconvene for another outing in an attempt to regain some type of normalcy in their lives.

1408 (REVIEW)

"1408" is a summer fear flick that certainly has the pedigree worthy of a horror classic. It has everything going for it. You've got a story by the legendary Stephen King, some great lead actors like John Cusack and Samuel L. Jackson, and some solid direction from Swedish director Mikael Håfström. Does this strange brew mix together to form a summer blockbuster? Read on and find out.
