Dead Hooker In A Trunk (2009)

Have you ever been skull-fucked after an ass rape? This is one of the many perplexing question posed by Twisted Twins “Dead Hooker In A Trunk”. Identical Twins Jen, and Sylvia Soska wrote, directed, produced, and starred in this wildly dark, and comedic horror/comedy that delivers what the title promises. The twins play, well… twins, […]

Blood River (2009)

Adam Mason has quickly become one of our favorite directors at The Liberal Dead. He has an uncanny ability to take next to no budget, and create something that will blow your mind. “Blood River” is his best film to date, and a true cinematic masterpiece. The story follows Summer(Tess Panzer) and Clark(Ian Duncan) as […]

[REC] 2

“[REC] 2” begins directly where the first film left off. As reporter Angela Vidal is being dragged off into the darkness, a swat team, led by an agent of the Ministry of Health is infiltrating the building. As it turns out, the Ministry of Health agent, is actually a priest, and has been sent to […]

Slaughtered (2010)

Left Films was kind enough to send me a screener of Kate Glover’s “Slaughtered”, and for that I thank them, and her. Unfortunately, it will probably be the last screener I receive from said studio, as I can’t in good conscience give this film a good mark. “Slaughtered” follows a group of friends that work […]

Girl Number Three (2010)

Before going in to “Girl Number Three” you have to accept, and embrace the fact that this is a micro budget production. You have to accept that you will not be witnessing any flashy FX, or quick cut editing. If you can get this into your head before you start the movie, you should be […]

Get Off My Porch(Short)

“Get Off My Porch” is a short by director Patrick Rea, that could easily fit into a fall themed anthology. The short tells the story of Neill Marshall(haha) An average husband, trying to make the most out of his wife being out of the house. Neill is catching up on some football watching, and potato […]

Train (2008)

On IMDB, it states that “Train” was originally penned as a remake to the 1980 Jamie Lee Curtis film “Terror Train”. Apparently, they must have re-written the entire script, as other than the fact that the events are unfolding on a train, there isn’t even remotely any similarities between the two plots. “Train” follows an […]

Rampage (2009)

Disclaimer: This is going to be a positive review for an Uwe Boll flick. If you fear this will shatter your concept of reality, you may want to stop reading now. Rampage stars Brendan Fletcher(Freddy Vs. Jason) as Bill, a seemingly normal early twenties kid, who has yet to find his way. His parents are […]

Mutants (2009)

Two good zombie flicks in a row? Is that even mathematically possible? Leave it to the French to quench my bloodlust. After being pleasantly surprised by “La Horde” I decided to pop in another new French zombie film titled “Mutants.” Low and behold, I was surprised once more. “Mutants” opens with a furious, and bloody […]

The Horde (2009)

I’ve been looking forward to “La Horde” for the better part of a year now. I love modern french horror. Movies like Brotherhood of the Wolf, Haute Tension, Inside, and Martyrs puts to shame most American horror, so when I heard a modern french Zombie film was on it’s way, I was immediately excited. “The […]

Survival of the Dead: Has the world gone mad?

I’ve already reviewed George Romero’s latest entry into his “Dead” saga, but I want to talk about it for a little bit. I’ve been seeing a lot of overly positive reviews pop up for this flick, including from Dread Central, one of the only mainstream horror sites I usually trust. I’ve watched the movie twice […]

Hanger (2009)

Ryan Nicholson’s films are some of the most polarizing experiences in motion picture that I’ve ever seen. For some, they’re cinematic gold, taking us back in time to the sleazy 80s. For others, they’re annoying, and disgusting. I fall into the former category. While I admit, the first time I saw Live Feed, it didn’t […]

Sympathy (2007)

I want to start with a disclaimer before we get into things. Sympathy is not going to be for all audiences. It is a very low budget movie, and it shows. If you’re looking for a glossy Hollywood thriller, with cookie cutter characters, and a nauseatingly happy ending, you’re going to want to put this […]

The Human Centipede(First Sequence)

It’s very rare for me to sit in awe of a film after the credits roll. I see some decent movies from time to time, but most of the time it’s the same old thing, just rehashed in a competent way. It’s been a good while since I just thought “Wow” after the film was […]

Remakeapalooza: Children Of The Corn (2009)

I’m not going to waste time on plot synopsis, as it’s a remake of a classic, and we’re all familiar with the story. 2009’s Children Of The Corn is a shitty remake, of the shitty cult classic from 1984. Much like Wes Craven’s original The Hills Have Eyes, I’m not sure how the original achieved […]

Pandorum (2009)

Pandorum stars Dennis Quaid, and Ben Foster as Lt. Payton, and Cpl. Bower. A member of a flight crew aboard the ship Elysium, a ship carrying 60,000 people sent desperately from the now overpopulated earth in order to find a new planet to inhabit. Bower, and Payton wake up from hypersleep suffering from severe memory […]

Dead Air (2009)

Dead Air is a hard movie for me to score. Some aspects of it, to me are amazing, while some(the entire zombie plot) are a little underwhelming. Dead Air stars Bill Moseley as Logan, a late night shock jock who spends his time berating his callers. Much like “Pontypool” something has happened outside of the […]

A Nightmare On Elm Street (2010)

I may have made a mistake. I recently bought the Nightmare on Elm Street blu ray, so I decided to watch it before the wife and I left for the midnight screening of Platinum Dunes “re-imagining” of said title. This means I was in uber-critic mode. Not only that, but I also watched the “Never […]
