horror comedy

“Eddie: The Sleepwalking Cannibal” is literally what you think it would be about from the name. A mute man named Eddie has the dark talent of turning cannibalistic once he falls asleep. Throw in a creatively starved artist using Eddie’s night attacks as inspiration for paintings and you have the full picture. Let me make it clear that this film is listed as a horror comedy which aided me in examining the purpose behind this plot. If you love “Shaun of the Dead” and the satirical yet bloody good “Cabin in the Woods” then...you’ll probably want to avoid this one.

Let's deal with the question on everyone's mind right off the top: Would the sequel to 2010's well-regarded horror comedy "Piranha 3D" be able to match the disembodied male sex organ quotient of the original? Happily -- or perhaps unhappily, depending on your feelings -- the answer is yes, sweet lord yes!

Let's just say it, "Gingerclown 3D" is a fantastic name for a film. The cast also looks great, Lance Henriksen, Tim Curry, Michael Winslow... but then I watched the trailer, and there isn't a single "Ginger" in it.

If I had to guess, I would assume that nostalgia plays a huge role in a lot of horror fans love of the genre. Personally, I know that when people ask me why I like and write about genre flicks, my go-to answer usually involves growing up watching these films with my father and childhood friends. Given that I grew up as a child of the nineties, anthology horror in particular triggered that nostalgic feeling more than almost anything.

I’ve long held the belief that the “Adjective Movie” series has been the single worst trend of the 2000’s. That said, I’ve held this belief without ever seeing a single film in the series. Yes, somehow despite being a teenage male just entering High School when the original “Scary Movie” came out in 2000 (in other words, the key demographic), I’ve somehow avoided all four movies in that series, “Not Another Teen Movie”, “Epic Movie”, “Date Movie”, “Meet the Spartans”, “Superhero Movie”, “Disaster Movie”, “Dance Flick” and, most recently, “Vampires Suck”.

In the above snapshot from the upcoming "Vamps", Alicia Silverstone and Krysten Ritter star as two modern day vampires whose immortality is threatened when love enters the picture.

Jeff Lieberman's "Remote Control" gives us an inside look at what happens when a video store clerk unearths an alien plot to take over the world with a 1950's sci fi movie that brainwashes its viewers into becoming mindless killers.

So apparently, if you are a miner and you witness a strange goo-like substance erupting from the earth deep within your mine shaft, your first instinct would be to taste the stuff. Am I right?!

Yes. "Dead Alive" is now streaming.

For most of you, that's enough to have you go rushing to your TVs to boot your Netflix streaming device of choice up. If you're somehow unfamilar with the film "Dead Alive", you may know it under the name "Braindead".

It's like "Wrong Turn" in reverse.
