In 20o7, a deadly virus pandemic breaks out in northern UK. The British government’s solution is a massive quarantine over all of Scotland. Those left in the quarantine area are left to fend for themselves, which doesn’t go over so well.
Fast forward about 20 years later and enter our badass leading lady, Eden Sinclair [...]
Next up in our 31 Days of Horror countdown is “The Wizard of Gore“, a “kind of” remake of a 1970′s Herschell Gordon Lewis movie of the same name.
From a writing perspective, I think “The Wizard of Gore” could have been good- probably even great, and maybe could have cracked my top 5 horror [...]
From the opening scene “Cube” thrusts the audience, along with 6 characters, directly into a booby-trapped maze of cubed rooms. No one, neither characters nor audience, knows quite why they’re there. But the film never lets up by leaving those claustrophobic cube chambers for a flashback or an easy explanation. It maintains an intense focus, [...]
“The Last House on the Left” opens with a long campy sequence that is reminiscent of “Happy Days” or even “Leave It to Beaver” in its quaint cheeriness. Mom and Dad sit in the den and joke with their coming of age daughter about her upcoming birthday. Life is simple. Everyone is all smiles. And [...]

Part serial killer thriller, part good teens gone bad, Australian indie “Acolytes” is the kind of horror movie they should be making more of. I’m pretty hard to please when it comes to this genre, and I was pleasantly surprised by this one.
“70% chance of rain? Yeah, right. It's absolutely GORGEOUS out here!”
Of all of Fox’s recent attempts at the science fiction genre, “Fringe” looks like the most likely to succeed. It made number 9 on our list of best new shows.
There was something important. . . Oh! I've decided on the pancakes. Blueberry.
The show: “Fringe” Synopsis: Remember the “The X-Files“? [...]
Here’s a recipe for braised bullshit movie: one 12 oz. can of David Fincher’s “Se7en” (Up), one leg of “Silence of the Lambs“, and two squirts of pure Quaid sweat. (This recipe calls for Dennis. Randy is an acquired taste. Little gamey.)
Reminds me of that movie… Hook.
Yep. “Horsemen” is a blatant “Se7en“/”The [...]
Yet another shelved movie comes to light on DVD this week in “Killshot.” You already know the Weinstein routine – reshoots, delayed release dates, editors removing a major character (Johnny Knoxville), producer Quentin Tarantino removing his name, and a theatrical release covering a pathetic five theaters. What’s left is a movie gutted to just 90 [...]
Who doesn’t want to spend 93 minutes watching Liam Neeson get hands on with some perps?
And hands on with the bad guys Neeson does get – early, often and hard. He also gets feet on, knife in, electricity through and several bullets lodged within them. Yep. The man who played Schindler is [...]
