Fall Down Dead (REVIEW)

I’m going to stray from the norm a little bit this week. I should be using this time to write about the film “Fall Down Dead”, a low-budget slasher flick that’s pretty much everything you’d expect from a low-budget, straight-to-DVD slasher film. It’s a review that I’m sure you’ve read a dozen times by now.

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:

Dark Ride (REVIEW)

The 'dark ride' is a venerable staple of fairs, carnivals and theme parks. Sometimes they're innocuous, like Disney's cheery “It's a Small World,” and sometimes they're a bit more sinister, but no matter what mood they try to capture, a theatrically-lit enclosed space full of animatronics is always uncanny.

The Absent (REVIEW)

You can tell a lot about a film by the way its packaged. When sending along a film for review, some companies will take the "less is more" approach, by sending along just the DVD in a generic case and maybe a press release to go with it, letting the viewer do the work. Other companies will give you absolutely every piece of information they can on their film, hoping that something sticks out as worthwhile.

ThanksKilling (REVIEW)

There exist certain openings in the pantheon of films that become timeless. They are lasting images that simultaneously tell you everything you need to know about the film you’re about to watch and become iconic images that transcend the film they’re in. Two enormous spaceships rocketing overhead locked in the heat of battle. A rugged archeologist grabbing a golden idol and outrunning a booby-trapped boulder. A baboon holding up a baby lion on a rock. “I was born a poor black child”. “They’re coming to get you Barbra”.

Episode 137 - "My Soul To Take"

Maybe the worst film we've ever reviewed... including "Shreik of the Mutilated".

Dead Tone (REVIEW)

I made a lot of prank calls as a kid. My friends and I were bastards like that. Chances are, if you accidentally dialed one of our cell phones, at some point in time we would be calling you back about something stupid. If you and your friends liked to hang out in the park and do whatever it is teenagers would do out in the woods, there was a non-insignificant chance that we’d be hanging out just out of sight and would be calling you on the park’s pay phone and trying to creep you out. Luckily, we never got caught or otherwise dealt with any negative repercussions of doing this so much.

Halloween Countdown - 25 Days to go!

I think it's safe to say we all love Halloween. So in order to make the wait JUST a tad more bearable, I'll be giving you random daily horror tidbits!

For today, I bring you the horror-comedy Hatchet! If you haven't heard, in a rather shit-tastic move, the recently released Hatchet II has been pulled from theaters. So since we can't watch that, we'll revisit the first one! Enjoy!

Blood Feast (REVIEW)

It’s a new decade, and we appear to be on the cusp of a new cycle in horror. Quentin Tarantino and Robert Rodriguez’s Grindhouse introduced the mainstream to the drive-in gore flicks of the ’60’s and ’70’s and has started a new trend at the theaters. This year has already seen "Piranha 3D" and "Machete", and with movies such as "Hobo with a Shotgun" around the corner, we appear to be at the beginning of a contemporary Grindhouse revival.

"The Final" Tackles A Touchy Subject

Although the trailer for Joey Stewart's upcoming revenge flick "The Final" looks somewhat interesting, you can't help but feel that the controversial subject matter is, perhaps, in poor taste. With school-related violence occurring at a brutally alarming rate, basing an entire motion picture around a dejected group of outcasts who torture and torment their teenage enemies might be a hard sell to the general public. Then again, maybe that's precisely what Stewart had in mind.
