Mulberry Street – A Mischief of Zombies

Mulberry Street – A Mischief of Zombies

“Mulberry Street” is a first time offering from writers Jim Mickle and Nick Damici, who went on to write “Stakeland”, and “We Are What We Are.” Mickle also directed this one, and that is about as good of a pedigree you will find in the movies I have been reviewing. The problem being, that doesn’t make this movie any better. Unpolished is the nicest way of saying it. Plot wise, a virus breaks out that is being spread by the large rat population. When bit by a rat the victim…

Paranormal Entity – Americas Most Demonic Home Videos

Before any sort of reviewing, joke making, and general movie nerd raging happens, I would really like to point out that the alternate name for this film is Paranormal Investigations 3. There are apparently two more of these films out there, or at the very least the creators were trying their hand at a joke…Whatever the truth is I am very happy not ever having seen them….if they exist. I always felt that if you were going to rip off a popular movie franchise you should try to at least…

River of Darkness – Total Nonstop Awful!

River of Darkness – Total Nonstop Awful!

*Clears Throat* Ladies and Gentlemen, Boys and Girls. Bob Blaschuk brings to you a review of a movie that features your favorite stars from Total Nonstop Action wrestling! “River of Darkness” is a full-stop, lack of thrill ride. A film watching experience absolutely packed to the brim with boredom, bad direction, and tedious dialogue. This movie will have you sitting on the edge of your seat, waiting with bated breath and wondering when the action is going to start. You’ve never seen, nor wanted to see, a movie like this!…

Burning Bright (2010) – Real Tiger Facts!

Burning Bright (2010) – Real Tiger Facts!

“Burning Bright” is apparently based on a poem from 19th century English Romantic Age poet William Blakes called “The Tyger”. I would not be offended, nor would I know if you took the time right now to go and read this short poem. I recommend you take note of the line where he mentions the half naked woman, and the hurricane…go ahead, I will wait….. Yup, I know what you’re thinking…no half naked woman, or hurricane mentioned. Well, I am no poet or student of poetry, but it seems from…

Ghostquake – The Haunted Dreams of Danny Trejo

Ghostquake – The Haunted Dreams of Danny Trejo

So, “Ghostquake” is bad. That line alone is probably enough to stop most people from watching this movie. Still, what’s worse than bad is that “Ghostquake” is just extremely boring. See, I can handle a bad movie, and rumor has it that I love myself some unintentionally funny bad films. But a boring bad movie, that to me, is the worst kind of film. It leaves you with the feeling that no one really cared about the finished product, and some executive just needed to fill a quota, or quickly…

Take ‘A Cure For Wellness’

Take ‘A Cure For Wellness’

A Cure for Wellness is the best experience I’ve had watching someone play a 90s horror adventure video game on the big screen. I mean that as a compliment. A young man (Dane DeHaan) wanders around a giant ‘wellness retreat’ looking for his employer in. He asks the weird residents questions, learns about the mysteries of the castle and runs into a number of challenges that he must solve by using objects he’s accumulated over his adventure. He meets Mia Goth, a mysterious patient with a dark past, that he…

Dead of Winter (1987)

Dead of Winter (1987)

Canadian winters are so magical and wonderful. Ask any Canadian, we’ll tell you, we love the snow and we love traipsing around snowy hills up in the bush with no contact to the outside world. It’s great. Especially when creepy blackmail is afoot. Well I mean, we need to have SOMETHING to keep us busy in the winter. Murder mysteries are perfect for that. Dead of Winter definitely doesn’t star Canadians, but it is a creepy winter murder mystery, and it was shot in Ontario. Therefore I’m instantly interested, because…

Snorenstein, Borenstein, and “Blackenstein” a.k.a. “Black Frankenstein” (1973) – Blaxploitation Horror #3

Snorenstein, Borenstein, and “Blackenstein” a.k.a. “Black Frankenstein” (1973) – Blaxploitation Horror #3

by Chloe Brett Re-visiting William A. Levey’s Blackenstein was not a stop on my journey that I was looking forward to. When I first saw it back in the day I found it pretty lacklustre, monotonous, and not to get to grandiose with my language, but just straight up super-duper boring. I was going in with a slanted view but I still tried to keep my heart and mind open to the possibility that this could potentially be a good movie. Well, it isn’t. Dr. Stein (John Hart) who looks…

It’s Not Cranberry Sauce in ‘Blood Rage’ (1987) – Review

It’s Not Cranberry Sauce in ‘Blood Rage’ (1987) – Review

BLOOD RAGE is the 80’s slasher at its most pure. There are teens, they hang out (for thanksgiving), and then they killed in horrific ways. That’s it! There’s nothing more to this 24 frames a second moving picture. Don’t look for any social commentary, or a plot, or even directorial flourishes.The story about twin brothers (One an evil psycho, the other framed for murder) never plays an important part, because the meek twin doesn’t do a thing until the final few moments. It’s just the psycho twin killing a bunch…
