Edgar Allan Poe's: Buried Alive
January 21, 2021

Freedom has its limits. Gary Julian As Edgar Allan Poe’s Buried Alive (1989) started playing, I couldn’t shake the feeling that it was an American International Pictures film, but that’s not possible since they ceased operations in 1980. Oddly, the musical score sounds like something from them too, not quite Les Baxter, more like Peter…

The Funhouse
December 17, 2020

The Funhouse (1981) is a movie that I’d never heard of until recently, and I thought I’d seen most of the 80s horror. It is like many slasher films of the time with a lot of suspense building. In fact, this one takes quite a long time to get going, like many made in recent…

You don’t have the eyes of the hunter. You have the eyes of the dead. Eddie Holt Wolfen (1981) was adapted from the book of the same name by Whitley Strieber. You could say that it’s a werewolf film, but that’s not entirely true as is shown. It stars Albert Finney as former NYPD Detective…

I think this place is possessed by demonic demons. Jack As with many horror films and not just from the 1980s, Scarecrows (1988) isn’t one that can be taken too seriously. I’m not telling you not to watch it. I’m just saying that you might not get the enjoyment value of the film if you…

Jaws of Satan
October 31, 2020

The Jaws of Satan (1981) is one of those exploitation horror films, and you know what that means, boys and girls, it’s gonna be cheese-filled and exciting. At barely five minutes in, the cheese is thicker than snot, and it’s followed by one astonishing scene after another. Christina Applegate is in this one, she was…

I’m not sure why they named this Ghoulies (1985), it seems Satanic Pets or something like that would be more fitting. The Ghoulies themselves don’t really play much in the film besides filler. Had they done something more exciting like Gremlins, maybe, this would’ve been better. And just think, there’s a total of four in…

I’ll make you suffer what I’ve suffered. Mary Madhouse (1981) is one of those movies that never hit my radar until recently. At least with today’s technology, it’s easier to get caught up on those hidden gems from the past. The open of this film is just as creepy as the ending. Surrounded by shadows,…

Lady in White (1988) is based on the urban legend of the Lady in White; no duh. It has the “Derry” feel or any of the King stories with kids and small towns – It, Silver Bullet, Stand By Me. Should I go on? – Too bad it isn’t as good. The story is narrated…
