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.

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 […]
