Darkness Rising
May 3, 2021

Just because a movie has an exciting poster doesn’t mean it’s going to be good. Darkness Rising (2017) that looks good on the surface with a poster that caught my attention, too bad it didn’t hold my interest; it wasn’t like I had anything else to do on a Sunday. It had creepy moments like…

Matthew Hopkins: Witchfinder General
February 18, 2021

Witchfinder General (1968) (aka The Conqueror Worm) is a collaboration between Tigon British Film Productions and American International Pictures. For the American release, AIP changed the name to Edgar Allan Poe’s The Conqueror Worm to link to other Corman/Poe movies they created. I’m not sure how brilliant that was since this has nothing to do…

1408
January 28, 2021

Finally, I got something to write about. A ghost that offers turndown service. Mike Enslin Just because Stephen King wrote 1408 (2007) doesn’t mean it’s good enough to make a movie. This is one that should’ve been left alone. It’s based on a short story, (I haven’t read it, and have no intentions) feeling like…

Night of the Lepus (1972), aka Rabbits, begins with a believable newscast about the environment and rabbits’ overpopulation. Well, if you live where I do, you know the rabbit population is enormous. This film is like Empire of the Ants (1977) or Food of the Gods (1976) – rather, those films are like Night of…

The Eye
December 28, 2020

So this is weird, somehow I recorded The Eye (2008) remake and The Eye 2 (2004). I decided rather than talking about them separately that I’d do a strange mash-up of sorts and put them together in one post. Jessica Alba stars in The Eye remake, and it bugs me how much product placement there…

Ghoulies
October 29, 2020

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…

Spirits of the Dead
October 15, 2020

Spirits of the Dead (1968) is a strange anthology film containing three Poe stories. While American International Pictures didn’t produce this film, they distributed the English version; I watched the French/Italian version. It’s strange that not all the voices can be heard as they are erased from the soundtrack. I wonder if it’s the same…

The Boy
March 2, 2020

I remember seeing ads for The Boy (2015) on ChillerTV when it was still a thing and was interested in what it was. The bits that I saw back then reminded me of Children of the Corn meets Pumpkinhead. Imagine my disappointment when I finally saw it three years later on SYFY VOD. Chiller Films should…
