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 […]

Peacock (2010)

Peacock is a very interesting, and original film. It tells the story of a small town bank clerk named John Skillpa, who has a very big secret. Little do his fellow towns people know that John also has a split personality, that happens to be a female. This causes him to dress as a woman […]

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 […]

SyFy’s Mothman

Yes you read the title correct I am in fact reviewing a SyFy original film. Mothman is very loosely based on the crypto we all have heard of by this point of our lives. Loosely as its based in point pleasant and the killer is the mothman other than that the story is basically throw […]

Pig

Adam Mason’s “Pig” premiered free to all tonight, on bloody-disgusting, dreadcentral, and Twitchfilm. Mason was responsible for the mind-fuck of a film “The Devil’s Chair.” as well as “Blood River.” To call this a film would be liberal usage of the word. It’s more of an experiment in the technical side of film making. There […]

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 […]

The Reeds

The Reed’s tells the story of six friends who plan a weekend boating trip through the Norfolk Broads but soon find themselves caught in the middle of the struggle between an old man and the very teenage life’s he took many years ago. The spirits of the murdered teen’s now haunt the old man and […]

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 […]

June 9

June 9 follows Derek boggman and his four friends, who during their summer vacation decide to make a video of their pranks, and trips into a neighboring town, Boston Mills, that’s surrounded by many dark legends and has been dubbed the nickname hell town. Showing footage of their various activities leading up the day in […]

Lake Mungo

Lake Mungo tells the tragic story of sixteen year old Alice Palmer, who drowned while swimming in the town’s local dam. What seemed like an open and shut case of accidental death, would soon be turned upside down with the start of strange events within her home. Revealing a girl who kept many shocking secrets […]

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 […]

Staunton Hill

Staunton Hill follows a group of young friends hitchhiking their way to a rally in D.C., but when their paths cross with an all too eager to help stranger, their lives take a horrible turn. Their journey to the home of the Stauntons, a crazed redneck family who’s involved in a very grisly, and blood […]

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 […]

The Fourth Kind

Since the 1960’s a very large number of the population of Alaska are reported missing every year. The FBI has launched thousands of separate investigations of the region. But still the truth remains unknown. The Fourth Kind follows the story of psychologist Dr Abigail Tyler whose research would turn out to be some of the […]

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 […]
