C.H.U.D. II: Bud the C.H.U.D. (1989) is a rough sequel, though there’s no indication that the C.H.U.D. in this one ever lived underground. So, I wonder, is he really a Cannibalistic Humanoid Underground Dweller? It’s definitely not the same beast either. This is totally a zombie, changing the city into more with a bite. It…

What’s more fun than a barrel of monkeys? Vampire Circus (1972). This one opens with the oiled down muscle dude hitting the giant gong, announcing ‘The Rank Organisation presents a Hammer Production,’ so you know it’s gonna be good. Well, you’d think. Vampire Circus is just strange for me and is longer than it needed…

I’ve had a quest for many years to find the movie with the fictional band The Puce Clits, and now that quest has come to an end because it’s in House II: The Second Story (1987). Honestly, that’s all I remembered from this movie. With the serious theme of the Viet Nam War in the…

The Final (2010) is about a group of misfit teenagers who seek revenge on their abusers. We all know teenagers can be horrible creatures, turning into some nasty adults, but not all of them. Sometimes when I see a film like this, I get flashbacks to good ole high school days, and I’m thankful that…

Howling II: Your Sister is a Werewolf
June 10, 2021

Howling II: Your Sister is a Werewolf (1985) sort of starts where The Howling (1981) ends with Karen White dying after she’d transformed into a werewolf. After the flashback scenes end that’s all forgotten. I find it interesting that this is based on Gary Brander’s novel The Howling II when nothing like this happened in…

Beyond the Gates
June 7, 2021

The idea of Beyond the Gates (2016), a Jumanji style horror movie, on the surface appears great, but as the movie crept along, I was disappointed. Not everything was bland, though. Like the opening credits music with its 80s flair or the few gore effects. Both of those were good. Oh, and the acting was…

The Crucifixion
May 24, 2021

I’m not sure what I was expecting when I came across The Crucifixion (2017). I had a baseline understanding of the premise based on the short blurb; a woman investigates a death that happened during an exorcism in Bucharest. The scenes with the possessions and exorcism were exciting, too bad they scattered those bits throughout…

Escape Room
May 17, 2021

Escape Room (2017) is the first of two movies with the same name released in September 2017; the other had Evan Williams, while the one I saw had Skeet Ulrich. From what I got from watching the trailers for both, they are essentially the same movie. When I first started watching the film, I was…
