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…

slumber party massacre 2

The Slumber Party Massacre (1982) The Slumber Party Massacre has so many cool things happening besides the gore that if you blink too long, you might miss them. But seriously, the main draw for this film is the boobies and blood because how can you go wrong? My favorite is the use of red in…

Oh, the cheese, the glorious cheese, how I yearn for your touch. Parasite (1982), if anything else, is a cheese-fest. The setting is a post-apocalyptic USA, where using Styrofoam burger boxes is apparently the rage in decorating. I wasn’t sure if they were Big Mac or Whopper containers, it’s been so long since they used…

High Spirits
July 16, 2020

High Spirits (1988) is a romantic comedy with some ghosts thrown in, but that doesn’t mean it doesn’t have some great thrills and chills. It stars Steve Guttenberg, Daryl Hannah, Peter O’Toole, and Liam Neeson, revolving around Peter Plunkett (O’Toole) who is trying to save his family’s castle from creditors. Ladies. Gentlemen. Children. You appear…

Maniac (1980) is one of the darkest, strangest films to come from the 80s. Well, I guess technically it was made in the 70s, but that doesn’t change this “video nasty” delight from being an awesome slasher thrill ride. Joe Spinell plays Frank Zito, a creepy, gross, mentally and physically scarred man. The sexual content…

After Midnight

After Midnight (1989) is another anthology film that threw three short films together with no rhyme or reason. They were supposed to be scary but weren’t really. I liked the main story about the sexy beast of a psychology professor, played by Ramy Zada, who is teaching fear. Now, that could’ve been something good had…
