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…

I figured I knew what was going to happen when We Summon the Darkness (2019) began, and what made me the happiest about this film is that I was wrong. It begins with a group of girlfriends traveling across-country to see a concert when they are attacked with a chocolate milkshake that splatters their windshield….

Psycho IV: The Beginning
January 14, 2021

A boy’s best friend is his mother. Norman Bates Psycho IV: The Beginning (1990) is made for television movie (Showtime) that attempts to give the history of Norman and doesn’t do the worst job. Having read Robert Bloch’s books in the Psycho series, I was surprised by the elements that were close. With the different…

Verotika (2019) is based on Glenn Danzig’s comics, which I’ve never read, but seeing this, I think I’m missing something special. Danzig did the music for this too, giving it an extra layer of macabre that wouldn’t be present had he used other artists. A warning, though, this anthology film is not for everyone. As…

The Food of the Gods
January 7, 2021

Oh, God, help us. I won’t never sin again, never. Only don’t let no rats eat us. Please God. Mrs. Skinner The Food of the Gods (1976) is an American International Pictures gem that I’m so thankful to the Scream Factory for bringing back into the light. It’s loosely based, and I mean loosely, on…

Nobody Sleeps in the Woods Tonight (2020) is a German horror film with English overdubs for us that only know one language. Netflix has been finding an amazing collection of films that I normally wouldn’t have seen or probably known about and this is a great addition to my favorite horror movies. Of course, I’m…

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…
