During the 1980’s camp related movies seem to spike the box office interest. Everything from Friday the 13th Summer Camp Nightmare and The Burning on one side of the spectrum to Meat Balls and its sequels on another could generate an audience and hopefully a modest profit. Every kid was going to summer camp […]
We have come to the end of the Stepfather Retrospective Series which means we’ve arrived at the 2009 remake simply entitled The Stepfather and o(pens with the same scene essentially and then… the movie just has it’s way with you). I want to be absolutely clearly that Jeff and I do not outright hate remakes. […]
Remember Corey Haim in Silver Bullet? He had a super wheel chair that was motorized, gas powered… it made every snot-nosed little so so and so wanna be a cripple so he could fight werewolves with firecrackers and Roman candles all from the seat of his turbo thruster ignited joyride mobile. Even me. I remember […]
If you’ve been paying attention to the things we’ve been doing lately on this website, and our podcast, you know that we dedicated the entire year of 2012 to doing a podcast series, examining the career of one of the most prolific genre filmmakers of all time, John Carpenter. In that series, each episode tackled, […]
So if you loved The Stepfather and think it was a pretty solid production, you would be shocked to find out all the insanity that seemed to surround the sequel’s production. Re-writes. Re-shoots. Added blood and/or gore or some reasaonble facsimile there of. Cool box art. Actors and directors who refused to compromise their visions. […]
Father’s Day… You know, you really don’t want a separate holiday for Stepfathers right? It’s just one day for everybody. All of us who might be considered a dad or dad-like substitute of a day just like you moms! That’s right. We get a day. We get ties and shit. Well it’s a great time […]
What can I say about the cannibal subgenre that stormed Euro cinema during the 70’s and 80’s? I love ’em. I love ’em when they’re good. I love them when they are not so good. I love them when they are an excuse to put naked women on the screen and cover them in Crayola […]
This is the end my friends. This is the last of the last and the absolute worst in the series of Critters movies. I’m afraid we don’t have much to offer you in the way of consolation, but I can assure you that you will find this installment of Dead Air will be amusing. By […]
You waited to find out what might have possibly happened to Charlie and Brad and Ug and Grover’s Bend. In your mind the battle is larger than life. In your mind Charlie and Johnny Steele fight Crites using new fangled weaponry with spacecraft you haven’t seen yet. There’s more nudity and more jokes. The gore […]
Critters 2 is a fan favorite. It’s a holiday favorite. Critters 2 is an amazing movie that woke up after a serious night of drinking and found its tongue firmly in cheek. The Dead Air guys love this movie and for the most part find a strange nostalgic connection to it. For me personally, twas the […]
Welcome to the next retrospective series from the Dead Air crew featuring all four films in the Critters franchise. Four movies you say? Yes. There were four movies made. Sure we all know about the glowing red eyes outside of the Browns’ window that scared the Stone out of Dee Wallace. We are all familiar […]
It’s over people. Season 3 of The Walking Dead has come to a close and we have questions. I will be the first to admit that this was not what I had in mind for a season finale though I was able to make a few predictions that did come to fruition. That doesn’t mean […]
Let’s get this out of the way in as polite a fashion as we might be able to muster for Candyman 3 aka Day of the Dead, our feeling toward the third installment in the series and how it fits into the whole mess. Candyman: Day of the Dead is trash. That’s all you need […]
Did you like Candyman? You loved it, right? Well welcome to the early eve of your disappointment with the sequel to Candyman, Farewell to Flesh. There’s nothing like watching a breakthrough performance from Tony Todd playing the ultimate urban legend creepy only to having it followed up with a near non-performance or at least non-appearance […]
In case someone forgot to tell you, we’re huge fans of John Carpenter, here at The Liberal Dead. In 2012, resident podcast expert Jeff Konopka, myself and several other guests, recorded a retrospective podcast series, examining all of carpenter’s films. Already being fans of Carpenter, it was quite an experience to study his filmography. Being […]
Welcome to the first episode of The Liberal Dead‘s Candyman Retrospective Podcast Series! In this episode, Jeff and James tackle the franchise’s first installment, 1992’s Candyman. Was that really Ted Raimi? How seriously does James take his urban legends? Why does Jeff cringe and the thought of dog heads? Find the answers to these questions here – along […]
With the rise of the teenage movie audience the horror genre has seen itself, for lack of a better word, shared. Take your average teen, romantic comedy and the create a horror hybrid that falls just under the acceptable boob, obscenity clause in the MPAA guideline so as to earn a PG-13. The result is […]
