Reed Alexander's Horror Review of 'Lord of Illusions' (1995)
Barker was really on point with this story. It's dark and gritty, and fucking disturbing. I also forget just how insane it could be including the multiple extremely cringe-worthy scenes. Barker was always good at extremes. So when the guy who gave me Hellraiser put out an Eldritch horror, I dove on it like a live grenade.
'Rock, Paper, Scissors' Movie Review
Rock, Paper, Scissors (originally titled Rock, Paper, Dead) is the long-awaited collaboration between director Tom Holland, who brought us Fright Night and Child's Play, and writer Victor Miller, who wrote the first Friday the 13th. It involves a former serial killer named Peter “the Doll Maker” Harris (Luke Macfarlane), who was sent to an insane asylum. However, he is released at the behest of his doctor, Dr. Evelyn Bauer (Tatum O’Neal), as she believes he has been rehabilitated, despite the skepticism of former police detective Doyle Dechert (Michael Madsen). Upon returning to his family home, Harris is plagued by horrific memories of his abusive uncle, and it takes an unfortunate emotional toll.
The Age of Scary Puppets and Dolls: Why Full Moon Deserves Their Streaming Service
When you think about it, we shouldn't be too surprised that the boys at Full Moon Entertainment recently relaunched their streaming service, branded as Full Moon Features—featuring 500+ titles of some of the shlockiest, sexiest, sleaziest, cheesiest, B-horror flicks ever known to man.
Film Review: 'Hidden in Plain Sight'
Katie (Victoria Barabas) is a small-town waitress with a big secret to hide—starting with the fact that she's living under a false name. Originally an art gallery employee in the city, Katie began a relationship with Nick (Gino Anthony Pesi), a patron who Katie met at an art show. Handsome, charming, and wealthy, Katie was taken by Nick, and their first month of dating was bliss. But after being attacked by a burglar in Nick's apartment and learning the true nature of Nick's profession, Katie makes clear to Nick that she wants nothing to do with him.
Do I tuck my shirt in?I don’t care, you look like you’re gonna fix the computer anyway. This straightforward movie Pledge managed to surprise me. At first, I didn’t expect much from it. But as the story unfolded, I thought that the makers of this horror story had incorporated some strong elements into it. Those who have experienced the rush into a fraternity personally will be happy that they didn’t have to endure a similar experience. It’s extremely difficult to stand out with horror when you see the number of horrors being released these days. After the first 20 minutes, it looks like you are going to watch a remake of Porky’s. Or better still, Revenge of the Nerds. You could say it was funny one way or another. But the fun part soon made way for the disturbing section. An atmosphere of panic, fear, and despair prevails until the end of the film.
Film Review: 'The Redeeming'
During a cold and stormy night, Joyce (Tracey Ann Wood) is surprised when a young man comes to her front door. The man introduces himself as John (Ryan Wichert), and asks to take shelter in Joyce's cottage from the storm, as well as get help with his broken arm. Despite reluctance to allow a stranger into her home, Joyce relents and lets John inside, with the two initially beginning to form a wary friendship as they prepare to weather the storm out together.
'Big Legend' (2018)
I don’t believe in fairy tales. Another film about the legendary Sasquatch, better known as Bigfoot. A few months ago I saw the film “Primal Rage” which I really could appreciate despite the low budget. And that because of the tension and the scarce moments of gore that were incorporated in it. In the movie “Big Legend” you have to deal with the same horrible monster, but unfortunately, that’s the only similarity with the previous movie. The film is long-winded and boring at certain times. And it’s not bloody at all. Something you should expect in a monster movie with an extremely powerful, hairy creature. A creature that tears off limbs and effortlessly slides vehicles in front of it. Not that “Big Legend” was torture to watch, but I still had to make an effort to keep my attention. And I always felt the urge to scroll on my tablet for something interesting to read. Not a good sign.
‘Scary Stories to Tell in the Dark’ Movie Review
Based on the popular trilogy of books of the same name, Scary Stories to Tell in the Dark involves a group of kids in the late sixties who sneak into an allegedly haunted house on Halloween night. After finding a book of scary stories written in blood (supposedly by a vengeful spirit), it quickly becomes clear that these local legends are true. And before long, new stories begin writing themselves—with them as the characters!
'The Lodge' Could Very Well Be The Next Great Horror Film!
In most celebrated horror films, there are two things that usually, more often than not, resulting in a terrifyingly satisfying and thought-provoking experience. There is a group of unsuspecting people, and there is a place they go where terrifying things happen within its walls. Over the years so many great examples of filmmakers taking those two factors, and generating an eerie concept that causes most of us to sleep with the lights on for weeks after the credits roll. The Conjuring films, The Shining, The Haunting of Hill House, Poltergeist, and The Amityville Horror are just some examples that meet these criteria that have become revered as classics within the genre. And it looks like the next title that could very well be added to that list is The Lodge. Some hail it as the next great, game-changing horror experience that is sure to rattle anyone who sees it. And from the looks of its shocking trailer, this relentless, mind-bending fright-fest seems like it will live up to its already infamous reputation as being scary as hell.
Quentin Tarantino's Final Film May Be a Horror Movie (Are You Surprised?)
We tend to forget that when it comes to Tarantino, the man's a legend. He himself is a motion picture! He's the Stephen King of film-making when you think about it. In fact... wouldn't it be a novel idea to have Tarantino adapt one of King's novels? We think so. Stanley Kubrick has, of course, done just that with The Shining.
Vampires from Demonology
We've all have heard stories about vampires and creatures going bump in the night, but where do most of these tales originate from? Demonology is the study of multiple creatures of the abyss from all origins of the world. Within the studies of demonology are vampiric creatures ranging from firefly-transforming bloodsuckers all the way to a corpse crawling its way from the grave to feast on your flesh.
Monogatari: The Tale of Castra (Part 2)
Castra and Fenora bow to the altar. In front of them the High Deacon is praying. The room is dilapidated, cracks and vines cover the walls. As he stands and turns smiling.
