I cannot tell you how many years it’s been since I’ve seen The Invisible Man (1932), and I’d forgotten how wonderful this adaptation is. The effects are ingenious. When he takes the bandages from his head, it’s breathtaking. If they were to do it today, it’d be all CGI and gross. I love Una O’Connor,…

With the recent reboot of the Critters franchise, I figured I should check out Critters (1986) again, to refresh my memory of what it’s all about. The story is about aliens that escape from an asteroid prison to Earth where they wreak havoc on rural town. It’s like a mix of Gremlins (1984) and The…

The 1980s produced so much cheese that it’s hard not to get constipated. At least I, Madman (1989) didn’t cause any backups even with the cheese meter hitting pretty high. The thrills and chills were strong, especially when they played with camera angles and used tricks with shadows. I, Madman has an uncanny resemblance to…

The Beast Within (1982) is one of those movies that never hit my radar until recently when MGMHD showed it, then it sat waiting to be watched in my DVR for at least a month. To say I’m surprised I’d never seen or heard of it before is very strange, as it is a perfect…

Sometimes I come across a train wreck and can’t stop watching it. The Video Dead (1987) is one of those movies, and I still can’t believe I watched it to the end. It is different from other zombie movies, where cutting off their heads doesn’t kill them, but if you trick them into thinking they…

I have taken the challenge of finding the strangest horror movies made and Carnival of Souls (1962) fits that list perfectly. Somehow Mary Henry has survived a water-born car accident, while her friends died, and she has no memory of how. For whatever reason she goes to Utah to take a job as a church…
