Review: Secret Window (2004)

Secret Window poster

If I had known this movie was based on a Stephen King story, I wouldn’t have gone. Basically, his movies are werewolf poo. Not that this is his fault, by the way. YOU try to cram 1000 pages into a quality hour and a half film. He couldn’t do it even with John Carpenter holding the camera (e.g. Christine). NO ONE can do it.(read more...)

Review: Jeepers Creepers II (2003)

There are certain movies I can’t seem to avoid seeing regardless how bad they look: anything with a serial killer hacking up oh-so-pretty teenage stars, anything with a ghost scaring the crap out of stupid people, and apparently, anything with a winged cannibal dressed up in a Matrix costume.

Oh dear.

That’s really all I can say. I was one of those that realized the potential of the first Jeepers Creepers. It had the atmosphere, the mood, and just the right amount of creepiness. Then, it suddenly turned into a slapstick comedy. But, the potential was there. Potential that I thought I might see in in Jeepers Creepers II. And, I SO didn’t.(read more...)

Review: Frankenstein (1910)

Frankenstein 1910

It's amazing the difference 50 years makes. In 1950, Edison's Frankenstein was on the "Films Lost Forever" list. In 2003, it became available for the first time on DVD. I had the opportunity to view it on the big screen at Monsterbash 2003, and I can say from the very bottom of my dark, scabied heart, it is a must have for any monster or silent film fan.(read more...)

Review: Freddy vs. Jason (2003)

Freddy vs. Jason poster

Like it or not folks, this movie was The Phantom Menace for horror fans. Put in the works in 1994, most horror fans gave up hope that this would ever be made. Here we are, 9 years later, with one question:

Did Freddy fry marshmallows on his face or something?

Well, that was MY question. But, you might be asking, “Did it live up to his hype?” And I would answer, “The best it could.”(read more...)

Bruce Campbell Interview

Bruce Campbell

The undisputed god of the modern B movies, Bruce Campbell is most known for his work from the Evil Dead series. He’s constantly working on various projects in the industry from movies to video games. Classic-Horror got the opportunity to meet up with him for a discussion about all things evil and dead. (read more...)

Cheri Montesanto-Medcalf Interview

Cheri Montesanto-Medcalf

The winner of three Emmys for her makeup work on "The X-Files," Cheri Montesanto-Medcalf was on the fast track for success at an early age. At age 17, while still in high school, she was the department head for makeup on the movie Fear No Evil. Now, she is one of the most sought after makeup artists in the business. I got the chance to interview this perfectly lovely woman, and she gave the people of Classic-Horror a wonderfully insightful behind-the-scenes glimpse of "The X-Files."

Classic-Horror: Hi Cher! Are you ready to do the interview?

Cheri Montesanto-Medcalf: Sure!

C-H: Thank you so much for doing this.

Montesanto-Medcalf: My pleasure.

Review: The Lost World (1925)

So you’ve seen Nosferatu, The Phantom of the Opera, and The Cabinet of Dr. Caligari. Still bitten by the silent film bug? Well, if you’re looking for something a little lighter than the run-of-the-mill silent horror flicks, you can do no better than The Lost World. A unique tale coupled with wonderful special effects makes this a fun way to spend 69 minutes.(read more...)

Al Feldstein Interview

Al Feldstein

Being one of those immature people who still read Mad Magazine, this interview was a pleasure for me. However, from a horror buff point of view, this man is important to our genre because he helped create perhaps the most successful horror comic book in history, Tales From the Crypt. I caught up with him via Internet, and he gave the readers of classic horror a very “MAD” chat about all things from the Crypt. (read more...)

Review: Dracula Has Risen from the Grave (1968)

Dracula Has Risen from the Grave poster

Well, here we have yet another Hammer Dracula movie. I must say I was a little worried as this one had no Peter Cushing and no Terence Fisher. It turns out my worries were for nothing, as this film was a perfect installment to the series.(read more...)

Gene Colan Interview

Tomb of Dracula

In the fickle world of comic books, there is one true survivor: Gene Colan. Well known for his work on the TOMB OF DRACULA comic, Gene has done everything from Captain America to Daredevil to Howard the Duck. I got the pleasure to interview this outstanding man, and he gave the readers of Classic-Horror a wonderfully unique interview. (read more...)
