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)

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...)

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...)

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...)

Review: Horror Express (1973)

I’m somewhat pleased that Nate asked me to do this review because I got to watch this film. I‘ve had it on DVD for a couple years now and I haven‘t had the opportunity to view it. I have just finished viewing it and found that it’s quite a fun little flick.(read more...)

Review: Blood Feast (1963)

Blood Feast 1963 poster

Ancient Egyptian cults! Decapitations! Must I mention, the infamous “pulling out the tongue” scene? Yes, this is what Blood Feast is made of (and, really, not much more). In all its shallow, technically awful glory, it is one of the most important “trash” films ever made.(read more...)

Review: The Old Dark House (1963)

Old Dark House 1963 poster

If you listen to many Hammer fans, they will tell you to stay away from this movie. Don’t listen to them. Listen to me, the resident Hammer film completeist. A Hammer film directed by William Castle may sound like an unsettling mixture. Well it is, but that’s a good thing! (God, I sound like Martha Stewart).(read more...)

Review: Dracula: Prince of Darkness (1966)

Dracula: Prince of Darkness poster

I must start out this review by saying that it was a true pleasure to review this film. I am a clinically insane Hammer buff and have not seen this movie for quite a few full moons. Therefore, in order to give it a proper review, I had to view it again. I was even more thrilled with the film after the second passing.(read more...)

Review: The Hound of the Baskervilles (1959)

Hound of the Baskervilles poster

In the very hit and miss world that I call Hammer Films, this is an absolute gem. This would seem very obvious to Hammer film fans as Christopher Lee and Peter Cushing lead the tale and Terence Fisher (Hammer’s best director) is behind the screen directing it. I have never once called a horror movie “charming”, but that is exactly how I would sum up this film along with other unlikely adjectives such as “enchanting”, “mesmerizing,” and “Chris Lee has a nice ass”. *Clears throat*. Sorry, I couldn’t resist.
