The Descent: Part 2 (Buy Here)

Dazed, bloodied and speechless with trauma, Sarah Carter emerges alone from the Appalachian cave system where the events of The Descent took place. Local sheriff Redmond Vaines forces her back underground to help the rescue team which is desperately searching for her five missing girlfriends. As the team moves deeper into the caves, Sarah’s flashes of fractured memory intensify and she begins to realize the full horror of the would-be rescue mission. Only Sarah knows the terror which lurks in the shadows of the caves. But they are about to encounter a new tribe of crawlers – inbred, deformed and even more viciously feral than those Sarah faced before.

The first film was one of the few that actually freaked me out, so I'm going to refrain from being snarky on the second installment until I've watched it! Claustrophobia, weird muties, sign me up!

Life Blood (Buy Here)

Forty years ago a supernatural force vanquished Brooke and Rhea, a sexy lipstick lesbian couple, after they committed an inconceivable murder. Now, on New Year's Eve, they'll rise from the dead. Still hot and still a couple, they're back as vampires. Enamored with their newfound power, it's no longer a question of whether they will kill again, but of how.

So I'm confused here...are they rising from the dead because they were lipstick lesbians? Or is there something else at play here?

Megapiranha (Buy Here)

A mutant strain of giant piranha escape from South America and eat their way toward the Florida coast.

We've all seen the clips of "Megapiranha" by now. I could give a damn what the plot is here, I just want to see giant fish eating helicopters.

Passed the Door of Darkness (Buy Here)

Detectives Chris Malloy and Murphy MacCasey comb through L.A. in a search for "The Shadow of God," the most sadistic serial killer the city has ever seen. As every murder scene is more horrific than the last, and every clue hits closer to home, the detectives slowly realize "The Shadow" is stalking them. With one shocking twist after another, their hunt for "The Shadow" leads to an unexpected, bloody--and deadly--climax.

When you name your "most sadistic serial killer the city has ever seen" The Shadow? It tells me you need to try a little harder.

Sympathy (Buy Here)

When a reckless bank robber and his rebellious teenage hostage hole up for the night in a bad motel, anything can happen. A mysterious stranger and dark twists of fate send this night into a descent of bloody madness in this deadly game of cat and mouse where nothing is what it seems. Lock yourself in for this claustrophobic tale that is equal parts classic suspense thriller and grindhouse horror.

I've yet to see "Sympathy" yet but I'd be willing to bet that when they say 'equal parts grindhouse horror'? They put that crappy faux film scratches throughout the entire film.

Tales From the Darkside: Season Three (Buy Here)

We don't need a plot description for "Tales from the Darkside"; it's a classic all it's own and there's a fair chance you've all at least heard of this old horror show.
