Movie Review: COLOR OUT OF SPACE

Richard Stanley is back. This is the guy who wrote and directed DUST DEVIL. He was also supposed to be the director for THE ISLAND OF DR. MOREAU. Whether he quit or was fired from that project depends on whom you choose to believe, but if you’ve seen that one, you know it’s for the…Continue readingMovie Review: COLOR OUT OF SPACE

TV Review: NOS4A2 Season Two, Episode 5

“Bruce Wayne McQueen” Damn. Now *that* was an episode! The only weakness, and it is also the only thing stopping this one from being the best episode of the series to date, is that kid. When the acting is as good as it is from all involved, it just makes it all the more obvious…Continue readingTV Review: NOS4A2 Season Two, Episode 5

THE CHOSEN Part Two: IN THE PADDED BELLY OF A CONCRETE WHALE Part 21

Light banished Darkness. Insomuch as it could experience the physical concept of pain, the Darkness suffered. To the extent that it could feel the human emotion of anger, the Darkness raged. The Darkness surged with hatred, hatred on a scale that defied the pitiful mortal definition of the word, hatred so all-consuming and potent that…Continue readingTHE CHOSEN Part Two: IN THE PADDED BELLY OF A CONCRETE WHALE Part 21

THE LOST BOYS Series: the Kiss of Death

In a way, you kinda have to admire the way the CW just keeps on trying. They ordered a pilot episode for a new TV series based on the 80s movie classic THE LOST BOYS, then scrapped the whole thing once it was completed and started over from scratch. Then they lathered, rinsed, and repeated.…Continue readingTHE LOST BOYS Series: the Kiss of Death

Revisiting the Classics: THE LOST BOYS

I didn’t get to see THE LOST BOYS in the theater when it originally came out. I read about it in FANGORIA. I saw the television ads for it. And when it released on VHS, I immediately rented it. It’s one of many films I didn’t get to see in the theater when they first…Continue readingRevisiting the Classics: THE LOST BOYS

Movie Review: FOLLOWED

I saw this one as part of a double-feature with RELIC. Two completely different kinds of Horror movies, both excellent. FOLLOWED, with a crackerjack performance from lead actor Matthew Solomon, is clearly inspired by the Hotel Cecil and the Elisa Tam case from 2013 (as was the fifth season of AMERICAN HORROR STORY: HOTEL; of…Continue readingMovie Review: FOLLOWED

Movie Review: RELIC

I don’t know if it’s typical of all drive-ins (I expect it is) or just the one I frequent, but when a movie is really dark—and I’m not speaking of tone here, but literal lighting—it can be hard to tell what’s happening on the screen sometimes. Sometimes this actually helps the experience, as with the…Continue readingMovie Review: RELIC

Movie Review: HELLRAISER: REVELATIONS

One more down, only one more to go in my quest to view all the HELLRAISER movies. For the most part, that law of diminishing returns I’d expected and feared didn’t materialize—until this particular movie, that is. I’ve found more to appreciate than not in the HELLRAISER movies prior to this, the ninth film in…Continue readingMovie Review: HELLRAISER: REVELATIONS

NOS4A2: Is Charley Evil?

Watching this week’s episode, during one of the commercial breaks, the wife and I started discussing who our favorite character in the series was this season. Hers remains Vic, while for me it’s Charley all the way. “He’s a great villain,” she said, to which I replied, “Yeah, but he’s not really evil.” “He’s pretty…Continue readingNOS4A2: Is Charley Evil?

NOS4A2 Season Two Episode 4: “The Lake House”

What’s the primary lesson we should all take away from this week’s episode, kiddies? It’s the lesson that Tabitha obviously did not bother to learn (which does make one wonder what they’re teaching FBI agents at the Academy these days), the number one rule of Zombieland, a movie she must never have bothered to watch,…Continue readingNOS4A2 Season Two Episode 4: “The Lake House”

The CHOSEN Part Two: IN THE PADDED BELLY OF A CONCRETE WHALE Part 20

It would have required very little effort of the imagination for Gale to believe she and Deb were in Hell. The darkness surrounding them seemed alive, so thick as to be palpable; it rendered all the more horrific the sounds that wafted through the cramped trees, magnified by the dead air. Her eyes and lungs…Continue readingThe CHOSEN Part Two: IN THE PADDED BELLY OF A CONCRETE WHALE Part 20

Movie Reviews: HELLRAISER: DEADER and HELLRAISER: HELLWORLD

I watched these two films back to back, as I continue working my way through all of them. That isn’t the reason I’m reviewing them together, though. I could get two articles instead of one out of this, but honestly talking about both at the same time is appropriate, since they both have the exact…Continue readingMovie Reviews: HELLRAISER: DEADER and HELLRAISER: HELLWORLD
