  • Mimic (1997) #SciFi #HorrorMovie

    Mimic

    I vaguely remember Mimic (1997) when it came out. I know I saw it, but for the life of me, I couldn’t tell you anything about it. Since it’s a Guillermo del Toro film, I figured I’d give it another watch. Back then, I had no idea who he was, or why he mattered, of […]

  • Waxwork (1988) & Waxwork II: Lost in Time (1992) #Cheesefest #Horror

    Waxwork_b

    Waxwork (1988) is one of the strangest anthology films I’ve ever seen. It begins as a horribly acted teen horror flick, then progresses into something good and unbelievably amazing, though the acting doesn’t improve. It’s weird. I don’t remember Zach Galligan’s acting skills to be so bad in Gremlins. It’s also a remake of sorts […]

  • An American Werewolf in Paris (1997) #HorrorMovie Review

    ParisWerewolf_b

    An American Werewolf in Paris (1997) doesn’t have any ties to An American Werewolf in London; thank the celluloid gods because it might have been a lot worse for it. I didn’t have any expectations that they would be linked. The opening scene is enticing, then fades to a bro comedy. I could’ve done without […]

  • Howling VII: New Moon Rising (1995) #DirectToVideo #Horror #Flop

    Howling-NewMoonRising_b

    I had higher hopes for Howling VII: New Moon Rising (1995) based on the previous installments; too bad it didn’t even reach Marsupials bar. To start, the name of the film in the opening credits was Howling VII: Mystery Woman, but when I did a Google searched, it only returned Howling VII or Howling: New […]

  • Howling VI: The Freaks (1991) #Werewolf #Horror

    Howlin-VI_b

    Howling VI: The Freaks (1991) reminds me of Vampire Circus (1972), which isn’t a bad thing; I liked that movie. Like the previous installment, this was a direct-to-video release, which is strange to me since it feels like something would’ve been in the theaters. I hadn’t seen this one until recently and will be watching […]

  • Bad Moon (1996) #HorrorMovie Review

    Full, crescent, quarter…each is a bad moon for a werewolf. First off, I want to tell you that I didn’t like Bad Moon (1996) that much. It had so much potential to be good, but failed. There are good parts, like the beginning with the werewolf attack, even though the beast was very stiff. My […]

  • Phantasm IV: Oblivion (1998) #HorrorClassic

    Phantasm_IV_b

    Four years after Phantasm III comes Phantasm IV: Oblivion (1998). At the ending of Phantasm III, Tim is pulled through a window while Reggie is detained by several spheres, which is not touched on in this chapter. However, Mike experiences flashbacks while driving a hearse, showing things that happened in the previous three movies. Angus […]

  • Phantasm III: Lord of the Dead (1994) #HorrorClassic

    phantasm_III_b

    Phantasm III: Lord of the Dead (1994) jumps ahead two years from the previous installment with some changes to the cast. A. Michael Baldwin returns as Mike Pearson, who’s been in a coma in those two years. Bill Thornbury also returns in his role as Jody; he was turned into a chrome ball and can […]
