There’s No Beast Like Snowbeast!

There’s No Beast Like Snowbeast!

When making a monster movie there is a very difficult story decision you have to make very early on in writing. You need to decide whether your film is going to be monster filled right from the beginning, letting your audience see and experience your creature in all its glory, or not showing said beasty until the perfect time, letting the fear and anticipation build until finding that one glorious moment of reveal. Sure, there are probably infinite other writing options too, but they are no fun so I am…

So grab your shucking gloves, and boil some water because I am going to break it down for you, corn style. “Husk” begins with a car full of bland but well admittedly acted characters getting…

Plan Z – Worst Plan Ever!

Plan Z – Worst Plan Ever!

You have probably noticed from my horror-centric reviews that I have a lot of love for the genre. I will watch any scary movie I can get my eager hands on. No matter what I say, I really like zombies as well, and I think they make a good villains for the most part. I don’t think I am the only one that enjoys a good zombie story, hence why they have become such an iconic staple of horror, and pop-culture. That being said, the Z-genre in its current form…

Knucklebones – High Art Cinema

Knucklebones – High Art Cinema

I love a good bad movie. I love the entertainment value of a film that was never meant to be funny, or goofy but still ends up that way. Sadly, movies like the straight to VHS horrors, and sleazy action films that made up a solid staple of past cheese watching are very rare in the new age of film. Luckily though, every now and then I sit down with a post-2010 horror film I have never heard of and get the pleasure of watching something that fits right into that…

Peelers – Oil of The Damned!

Peelers – Oil of The Damned!

At first glance “Peelers” looked like the type of funny sleazy horror I would enjoy. I mean, look at that poster and tell me you don’t think the people who made this film have a good sense of humor. While it is funny, and at times weird and sleazy, “Peelers” is just too bland overall to be good. Its odd sense of humor does save it from being overly terrible, though. The laughs that are to be had go a long way to making parts of it watchable, but as…
