A "Totally" Cool Chat with PJ Soles

PJ Soles

You know her voice instantly, especially when she says "Totally!" PJ Soles made her mark in two of the best horror films of the late 1970s, Brian de Palma's Carrie and John Carpenter's Halloween. She took some time out of her busy schedule to chat with our very own Jenn Dlugos about those films and her experience with Rob Zombie while filming a part in The Devil's Rejects.(read more...)

Review: Dracula A.D. 1972 (1972)

Dracula AD 1972 poster

In a desire to reach the young market, Hammer Films put out the movie that many consider an atrocity in the Hammer Dracula series. Dracula 1972 A.D. was meant to breath new life into the classic horror monster, even though there was nothing really wrong with him to begin with. What we are left with is a film that can’t decide whether it’s a teen flick or a serious horror film, but still has enough likeable aspects to make it an enjoyable Hammer Dracula flick.(read more...)

Review: The Revenge of Frankenstein (1958)

Revenge of Frankenstein poster

The second of the Hammer Frankenstein dynasty, The Revenge of Frankenstein has been revered as one of the best Hammer films to date. A suitable, and in some ways superior, follow-up to The Curse of Frankenstein, The Revenge of Frankenstein is required viewing for any classic horror fan.(read more...)

Review: Carrie (1976)

Carrie poster

One can’t help but to smile fondly when one hears the line, “They’re all going to laugh at you.” Carrie was the first, and undoubtedly the best of Stephen King’s book adaptations. What gives Carrie its staying power? The fact that underneath the supernatural overtones, this film remains to be one of the most realistic and relatable cinematic tragedies of modern day.(read more...)

Review: White Noise (2005)

White Noise poster

I am willing to accept that most every attempt at horror that Hollywood puts out is going to be hack. Above this, I can still usually find something at least mildly enjoyable in the typical Hollywood horror flick. This film? Not so much. For a film in which I had such low expectations going in, I still came out disappointed due to directorial incompetence and the fact that the creators were absolutely clueless of the potential of the subject matter.

Review: Cannibal! The Musical (1996)

Cannibal the Musical

Trey Parker's ("South Park") Cannibal! The Musical is a western/horror/cannibal/comedy/musical. There are not many of those out there, folks. And certainly none so many that still manages to be a hilarious must-see despite its heavy, heavy flaws.(read more...)

Review: The Comedy of Terrors (1964)

Comedy of Terrors 1964 poster

Finally released for home-viewing pleasure relatively recently, many reviewers call this film “the funniest horror parody ever made.” While that may be stretching it a bit, The Comedy of Terrors is an absolutely hilarious little romp well-suited to titillate any lover of the classic horror genre.

Review: Open Water (2003)

Open Water poster

Well-made horror is only too rare these days, but well-made horror made with only one screen shot is virtually an impossibility -- that is, until Open Water came around. Open Water has been defined as “Blair Witch Meets Jaws.“ This seemingly accurate description is actually quite a discredit. Open Water has the best qualities of both films, but blew both of them away in the suspense department through just a touch of courage.(read more...)

Review: Gremlins 2: The New Batch (1990)

Gremlins 2: The New Batch

Gremlins 2: The New Batch is to Gremlins like Halloween 3 is to Halloween, or like Freddy vs. Jason is to… er… any other Jason and Freddy movie. It’s off. Way, way off. It’s like the sequel of Citizen Kane being The Silence of the Lambs. Both are excellent movies in their own right, but not exactly shooting for the same viewer demographic. This is exactly what happened to Gremlins 2.

In order to enjoy this movie you must:(read more...)

Review: Shadow of the Cat (1961)

Shadow of the Cat

A missing film from many Hammer Films’ filmographies, The Shadow of the Cat is 100% Hammer. Released under Hammer’s pseudonym, BHP Productions, The Shadow of the Cat gives the same gleefully eerie pleasure as Hammer‘s well known hits.(read more...)
