Happy Bloody Valentine’s!

To quote from the Bluegrass-y remake of the song “99 Problems” by Hugo (as opposed to the original from Jay-Z, which I don’t care for) as used to great effect in the FRIGHT NIGHT remake. “If you’re havin’ girl problems, I feel bad for ya’ son. I got 99 problems, but a bitch ain’t one.”…

The Soska Sisters Want Your Blood

Sylvia and Jen Soska, the “Twisted Twins”, a pair of independent movie directors responsible for such modern classics as AMERICAN MARY, are “hosting” a blood drive. “It’s that magical time of year again where we Sisters Soska don’t just want to spill blood on the screen, but want YOU to bleed for us. Don’t worry,…

In defense of Kinski

Klaus Kinski was one of those actors who’d take any old part that came along. He’s sorta like Nicholas cage in that respect, except his talent eclipses Cage’s like a spotlight outshines a match. I have full confidence saying that Kinski took roles that were beneath his abilities both because so many who knew him…

A Look Back At THE MUMMY

Sometimes I will go back and take a second look at a movie I’ve seen and initially didn’t care for, just because I keep hearing such good things about it from other people. Maybe, I think, I missed something. Rarely, very rarely, I will change my opinion based on this second viewing. (GONE GIRL is…

Should they make BLADE 4, or “Revamp” the series?

Honestly, I’m not sure they should do either. This might be a case of “leaving well enough alone.” The first two BLADE movies were hella strong. The third, not so much, and let us not even mention that attempt at a TV show. (What, you forgot there was a Blade TV show? Consider yourself lucky.)…

Of Vampires and Sanguivores

In this day and age, and in a free society, a person can call himself anything he wants to. This doesn’t just apply to gender. If an anatomically male individual claims to really be a female “on the inside” and wants to be referred to as a “she,” I will do so as a show…

A Reason to watch RIVERDALE?

When I first heard–er, read–about the CW’s plan to bring the Archie comics to life in a new, “dark” television series called RIVERDALE, I responded with a sneer. I thought it sounded stupid. If I’m being frank, I still do, and this despite the fact that RIVERDALE is now in its second season and has…

SLENDER MAN Sycophant Sentenced

I caught the trailer for the upcoming SLENDER MAN movie, which has been moved from its original release date until late August, at the beginning of WINCHESTER this past weekend. (Isn’t it funny how they call them “trailers” when they come BEFORE the movie?) It looks good, but it’s impossible to get a read on…

THE WALKING DEAD: Carl May Not Be Dead After All?

If this is true, as reports suggest, it’s one of the most egregious cases of backpedaling I’ve seen in a long time, outside of politics. What a cop out. Come on, people, you’re better than that, aren’t you? You made the move, now you’ve got to stick with it. You can’t ret-con it, even if…

Thanks, Swampy

I caught WINCHESTER at the theater this past weekend–look for my review also up on this site–and it got me to thinking about a comic book I read as a kid. Far from being “just” a comic, though, this one was part of a series that left a permanent, indelible imprint on my life, on…

Mistress of the Dark, Mistress of Copyright Infringement?

You may have heard that Vampira (real name Maila Nurmi), star of PLAN 9 FROM OUTER SPACE and the original “Mistress of the Night” late night Horror movie host, sued Elvira for stealing her gimmick, but the courts ruled in favor of Elvira. It isn’t true. There was no ruling because there was no trial….

Vladislav! Baby don’t hurt me!

If you do not “do” Facebook, create a Facebook account for yourself, just so you can watch this video. It’s totally worth it. It’s hysterical. I laughed until my ribs hurt. My friend Shannon alerted me to it, suggesting that I pass it along to you, all my faithful followers, and so that it what…
