Oliver Stone wrote and directed 1981's "The Hand," a movie that scared the beejeezus out of me as a kid. "The Hand" is about, unsurprisingly, a hand. It is also a remake of a 1946 movie, "The Beast With Five Fingers," and is based on Marc Brandell's novel, A Lizard's Tail.

I'm pretty sure the most memorable thing about 1991's "Popcorn" is the awesome video cover. It's because of that VHS video cover that I've always had a soft spot for this movie.

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.

I was pretty excited when I discovered "Screamtime", a British horror anthology streaming on Netflix Instant Watch this past weekend. This was one of those movies I have always wanted to check out but never got around to watching until now.

If you're a fan of "so bad they're good" movies, then this movie is not for you.

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?!

Apparently I've been on an Eddie Furlong kick lately, because "The Visitation" is like the third movie I've watched in the past month with him in it. The film, which is based on the novel of the same name by Frank Peretti, takes place in the small town of Antioch.

Believe it or not boys and girls, in the early 90's, Edward Furlong was considered a teen heartthrob. So thank you, Eddie Furlong, for being the reason I saw a really fun horror movie that I would have never watched otherwise at such a young age.

"Rabid Grannies" is a Belgian horror film that was dubbed in English and thankfully distributed in the US by Troma. It's a pretty fun little horror comedy that revolves around the demonic possession of two elderly sisters on the night of their 92nd birthday party.

In this, uh, interesting horror-comedy, we get an insider's look at what happens when you mix an animated monster, porn actresses, and David Carradine... and let me tell you, it's pretty darn entertaining, in a watch with a group of friends and a ton of beer sort of way.
