by Phil Wheat

Stars: Tracey Gold, Edward Furlong, Bug Hall, Ethan Phillips, Olivia Hardt, Megan Adelle | Written by Paul A. Birkett, Eric Forsberg | Directed by Griff Furst I love cheesy Syfy channel TV movies – mainly because unlike big-budget Hollywood flicks, these movies know exactly what they are and their limitations and have fun with it! This […]

Stars: Andrew Pozza, Liddy Bisanz, Joey Oglesby, Donny Boaz, Devin Bonnée, Philip Marlatt, Tim Ogletree, Liz Waters, Conley Michelle Wehner | Written by Andrew Pozza | Directed by Derek Lee Nixon Parodies on horror can be hard to get right, as witnessed by Scary Movie.

‘Combat Shock’ Review

by Paul Metcalf

Stars: Rick Giovinazzo, Veronica Stork, Mitch Maglio, Arthur Saunders | Written and Directed by Buddy Giovinazzo Films are like plays and books; they elicit an emotional response from us, and we hope for happiness to be one of them, especially at the end.  Then of course there are the chosen few that are just so […]

by Paul Metcalf

Stars: Chuck Connors, Jocelyn Jones, Jon Van Ness, Robin Sherwood, Tanya Roberts, Dawn Jeffory | Written by David Schmoeller, J. Larry Carroll | Directed by David Schmoeller The slasher film does not have that much of a history of being scary.

‘Castle Freak’ Review

by Paul Metcalf

Stars: Jefffrey Combs, Barbara Crampton, Jonathan Fuller, Jessica Dollarhide | Written and Directed by Stuart Gordon I could argue that there is something subtly brilliant about Castle Freak, yes it’s got its faults and its level of sexual violence will put some off, but in other ways it’s the perfect horror film.  It knows its limits […]

‘Knights Templar’ DVD Review

by Paul Metcalf

Stars: Paul Sampson, David Carradine, Udo Kier, Norman Reedus, Billy Drago, Max Perlich | Written and Directed by Paul Sampson Knights Templar (also known as Night of the Templar) is a strange film; in fact it should not work.

by Paul Metcalf

Stars: Eva Green, Matt Smith, Lesley Manville, Peter Wight, István Lénárt, Hannah Murray | Written and Directed by Benedek Fliegauf Originally called Womb, Clone seems to have had a name change to evoke more of a sensationalist reaction in people who may buy it, but in truth the original name says a lot more about the films subject and the opinions I have of it.

Stars: Jay Laisne, Rochelle Vallese, Cynthia Ickes, William David Tulin, Kari Nissena | Written by Neil Johnson, Michael Jonathan Smith | Directed by Neil Johnson Humanity’s End is a film that just confuses me, it’s got a plot that is pretty forgetful and bad special effects and if it relied on them then it would be […]
