Late Night Horror Shows: Memoirs of a Misspent Youth

Late night TV, we all watch it, some of us on a regular basis and some only when sleep is fleeting. The thing is, none of us really look forward to watching it. Who really waits with bated breath to see Leno tell more Clinton jokes or Letterman pull more "wacky" stunts that try desperately to recapture the hipness he once enjoyed. Although some of us used to look forward to SNL years ago, nobody is really anxious to see it limp through another season.(read more...)

Review: The Dead Next Door (1988)

Dead Next Door

This movie can be viewed in two different lights. The first, and more unflattering, is that of a straight zombie flick, shot on a shoe-string budget by some basically talented people with big ideas and a love for horror who haven't completely pulled off the movie they were trying to make. On the other hand, if you have seen the films official web site and watched the behind-the-scenes documentary The Dead Next Door: 15 Years in 15 Minutes, or read any of the number of articles about it, you will probably have a slightly greater appreciation for the movie and be a little more willing to cut it some slack.

If, however, the producers of The American Nightmare are correct, things aren't that simple. Instead of looking at the effects of the horror movie on society, this original independent Film Channel documentary examines several horror movies of the 60s and 70s as a mirror of society.(read more...)

Review: Frostbiter: Wrath of the Wendigo (1996)

Frostbiter: Wrath of the Wendigo

Yep, its another Evil Dead rip-off, but this one is full of Troma Goodness. The movie opens with a very old man writing an account of his battle with the Wendigo, an ancient evil spirit, that took place over one hundred years before the start of the movie. He managed to defeat the creature and trap in inside a mystical circle created with the skulls of the monster's previous victims. The old man warns that, should the circle be broken, the evil would return even stronger than before and plunge the world into darkness...(read more...)
