In the beginning scenes of this film, a journalist and a scientist’s daughter decide to go to the remote island of Matool together. They end up hitching a boat ride with a vacationing couple. They stop for a moment so the brunette can take a half-naked swim and snap some pictures, leading up to the […]

Yesterday afternoon I opened up a package to find a copy of Trees: The Movie, packed with a cute little pinetree air freshener (making it the best-smelling movie on my video shelf). A somewhat bizarre homage to Steven Spielberg’s classic Jaws, Trees pits man against conifer in a battle to the death. Ranger Cody gets […]

Them Damn Zombies

This independant movie starts out with Cleatus, a guy with a mullet, a Metallica shirt, and a dog named Sam. It seems Sam has venture off into the woods and won’t come back. We soon learn why. In the words of Red, a friend of Cleatus’, it’s “them damn zombies!” Three friends, Jessica, Tiffany, and […]

The Beyond

Eyeball-popping fun! No, actually, while plenty of eyeballs get popped, the movie was kind of slow. The mood is set fairly well, but I still think Zombie was Fulci’s most cohesive movie. This one has a lot of loose ends, and pointless plot-detours. The acting isn’t bad, but certainly is not good. This movie has […]

Texas Chainsaw Massacre: The Next Generation

I was really scared when I looked at the box art for this one, thankfully it was somewhat misleading. It shows a Leatherface sort of character wearing red thigh-high pantyhose with a really horrible mask. It’s not quite as dramatic as the cover, but yes folks, Leatherface is now a cross-dresser. Actually, this seems to […]

Texas Chainsaw Massacre 3

This movie has nothing going for it at all. A couple is passing through Texas, only to end up getting ‘hunted’ by locals. I was kind of annoyed with the references to the original movie, like there’s a family member who takes the couple’s picture in the first few minutes. Sorry, but this dude is […]

Texas Chainsaw Massacre 2

The movie opens up with some high school kids driving through Texas, calling a local radio station and annoying “Stretch” the DJ. The second time they call, Stretch can hear a chainsaw and they are screaming. Seems they ran the wrong Texans off the road. Flash forward to the next day. Dennis Hopper, whose worst […]

Texas Chain Saw Massacre

The beginning of the film sets the mood well. There’s a short intro telling how this film is based on real murders (loosely based on Ed Gein’s murders, that is) and a long zoom in on a dead body in a cemetery. Then we see some twenty-somethings in a van, driving out into the Texas […]

After years of hearing great things about this movie, I bought a copy. I’ll have to say I have mixed feelings about it. Basically, the story goes as follows: girl go to a German ballet academy run by witches, maggots fall out of the ceiling, and some carnage ensues. Okay, that was a bad synopsis. […]

Subspecies 2

This movie takes up precisely where the original Subspecies left off: it seems that the vampire Radu (Anders Hove) has “mingled his blood” with unsuspecting mortal Michele (Denice Duff), turning her, slowly but surely, into a creature of the night. She escapes his castle to a hotel, where she calls her sister Becky for help. […]
