Nine Dead

Going in to Nine Dead(2010) I had next to no information about the film. I knew it featured Melissa Joan Hart, which, let’s face it, is the queen of the curvy women for my generation. And I saw that it had a 4 star rating on Netflix. Now, if you’re familiar with Netflix, you know […]

Repo Men (2010)

One trip to IMDB would clue you in on a little controversy over the film Repo Men. Despite beginning it’s early writing stages in 2003, people seem to think that it’s a “Rip off” of a film titled “Repo! The Genetic Opera.” Personally, I never got around to seeing that film, so I thought I […]

Splinter

Splinter was one of the biggest surprises for me in 2009. After a very limited theatrical run in late 2008, it was finally released on DVD in April of 2009. Splinter is one of those movies that was never given a fare shake. It’s technically a straight to video movie, but it was better than […]

The Final(2010)

The After Dark Horrorfest has been hit and miss. The past 2 years have been outstanding compared to the first 2. Although there were some gems here and there, “Borderlands” and “Mullberry St” comes to mind. There was also some complete crap, like “Nightmare Man.” This years crop of “8 Films to die for” have […]

George A. Romero’s Survival of the Dead

Before I start this analysis, let me clear something up. I am one of the biggest Romero fanboys on the planet. If the title of our blog didn’t tip you off, Romero is one of the biggest influences on me, and my quest into the horror genre. The past two films in his “Dead” series […]

The Descent: Part 2

A sequel. I should end my review right there. But in the interest of taking up useless e-space, I’ll continue. For me, The Descent Part 2 had 2 strikes against it before the opening credits rolled. Director Neil Marshall has not stepped back behind the camera to further his already finished story and the sequel […]

The Burrowers(2008)

Burrowers is a western/horror hybrid, set in 1879 in the Dakota Territories. A few pioneers have settled outside of civilization. Will Parcher, played by William Mapother(Lost, The Grudge) is attempting to ‘swoon the poon’ of Gertrude played by Laura Leighton. In a brutal nighttime attack, the survivors of a family are abducted. Being set in […]
