Onibaba (Demon Woman) (REVIEW)

J-Horror is pretty well beaten into the ground by this point. With films like “Ringu”, “Ju-On” and “The Eye” spurring American remakes, sequels, sequels to the American remakes and blatant rip-offs, the genre is pretty much dead. Personally, I know if I have to review another film with that wet ghost girl with stringy hair I might just swear off horror films forever. But J-Horror wasn’t always about cell phones, video tapes or that goddamn ghost girl. There was a period of time when Japanese horror was something else entirely.

Netflix Streaming Friday: "Twin Peaks"

David Lynch. You either love him or hate him. Me, I love the dude. While I can't explain a single one of his movies, that doesn't stop me from thinking they're awesome. What is Dennis Hooper huffing in "Blue Velvet"? No idea. All I know is that Frank Booth might be one of my favorite screen villains ever and that I haven't been able to drink Heineken since seeing that movie. It also doesn't help that it tastes terrible, but that's another story entirely.

Netflix Streaming Friday: "Mega Shark vs. Crocosaurus"

When us Syfy Original connoisseurs last saw the Mega Shark, it was locked in battle with the dreaded Giant Octopus in 2009's aptly titled "Mega Shark vs. Giant Octopus". We thought things were over when our band of heros, including Lorenzo Lamas and Tiffany, managed to vanquish both beasts, saving mankind from the Mega Shark's passenger plane eating ways (seriously, look that shit up on Youtube, it's incredible). We thought they were gone. We thought we were safe from ever having to see a movie with "Mega Shark vs." in it's title again.

Turns out we were wrong. Dead wrong.

Netflix Streaming Friday: "Dead Alive (Braindead)"

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".

Netflix Streaming Friday: "The Thing"

Many of you probably woke up to the unpleasant sight of snow this morning. While your gut reaction will probably be to curse a bit, contemplate moving to Florida because you're a big old baby and then trudge through the snow to brush off your car and fight traffic to work, I implore you to stop all that. Draw all the curtains and blinds in your house. Make it nice and dark. Now turn off your heat, open your doors and windows and let that cold inside.

Netflix Streaming Friday 3/24/11 - "Escape From New York"

It's the year 1997 and the United States is in trouble. World War III is raging and the United States is locked in an never-ending battle with the Soviet Union and China. Crime is on the rise and the nation's penal system is overwhelmed. In a desperate attempt to win the war on crime, the island of Manhattan is walled off and converted into a maximum security prison where the inmates run wild and no one can escape. The system seems to work well enough, until the unthinkable happens.

What if HP. Lovecraft and John Carpenter made a film together? Well, that'd be kind of weird because HP Lovecraft died before John Carpenter was even born so there'd some pretty spooky shit going on for that to happen, but forget all that. "In the Mouth of Madness" is essentially that film.

Netflix Streaming Friday - Week of March 4th, 2011

Conspiracy theories are awesome. There's just something about listening to hillbillies talking about aliens shoving shit up their asses that I find hilarious and will never get tired of hearing. The only thing better than listening to hillbillies rant and rave about aliens, the Men in Black (not the Will Smith kind) and far-reaching government conspiracies is listening to a formerly respectable, former A-lister (maybe that's a stretch) simultaneously nuke his career and do all the above.

Netflix Streaming Friday - Week of February 25th, 2011

I swear, Netflix Streaming is turning me into a big nostalgic baby. When I think of classic horror television from my childhood, there's some obvious shows that come to mind, "Tales from the Crypt", "Monsters", "The X-Files", "Dark Shadows", all that jazz. There was one that I sorta forgot about until I read it's name going through this week's new additions to Netflix's Instant Stream, but upon reading I was awash in a wave of nostalgia, "Eerie, Indiana". If you remember the show, it was that same feeling you just got.

Netflix Streaming Friday - Week of February 18th, 2011

There's nothing I love more than a shitty horror sequel that takes place in Outer Space. While everyone out there claims that "Leprechaun in the Hood" was the best "Leprechaun" movie, all the cool kids know that "Leprechaun 4: In Space" was really the best one. Disagree with me? Well, then you're not a cool kid. Deal with it.

Along those lines, my absolute favorite "Friday the 13th" film is easily "Jason X". Does it suck? Oh absolutely. But is it entertaining? Well, let me just list out some of the crazy shit that happens in this movie:
