Movie Review: <em>Venom</em> (2018)
It has been a long time since I have really followed Venom in the comics. That really goes for pretty much all comic books, these days I get my superheroes on the big screen rather than the printed page. With that said, there is likely a good portion of you...

A Haunting Experience at The Terrordome
I love this time of year. The changing of the leaves, the chill in the are, the appearance of Halloween decorations in stores, not to mention the increased focus on horror movies. In addition to all of that, there is the annual return of haunted attractions...

Movie Music: <em>Halloween</em> - "The Shape Returns"
Any new take on a classic is usually met with a cacophony of derision. It’s true, most of them do fail to live up to expectations. I also find that many just can’t in no matter what, before they get made people clamor for something new, when that happens th...

Event Recap: The 5th Exhumed Guilty Pleasures Marathon (Alamo Drafthouse, Yonkers, NY, 9/22/18)
There are a few cinematic events that are well worth looking forward to. This goes beyond your anticipated new releases. This goes beyond what shows on the screen (although that does matter), it is about the people who run the event and the people that atte...

Movie Review: <em>Peppermint</em>
When people ask me what I thought of Peppermint , my answer is always the same. I tell them that the movie is nothing but a collection of missed opportunities. On some levels I liked it, but on other, more, levels, I just did not. I was relatively excited t...

Movie Review: <em>Dr. Butcher, M.D.</em> (aka <em>Zombie Holocaust</em>)
What is it about Italian genre film making of the 70’s and 80’s that makes it so attractive? There is just something about those movies that I find irresistible. Yes, they run the gamut in terms of quality from all-time classics to utterly atrocious, but th...

Movie Review: <em>Revenge</em> (2018)
Rape/Revenge movies have a long and grimy tradition in the cinema world. These movies don’t glorify the prior act, while putting the latter on a pedestal. This is the way it should be, rape is in no way shape or form a defensible act; however, in the form o...

Critical Capsule: <em>Slender Man</em> (2018)
Using Moviepass of late has turned into a sad game of Whack-A-Mole. I had intended to see The BlackkKlansman, but since those showtimes disappeared from the app, I turned towards the next available film. I was sent down the rabbit hole of Slender Man. I gue...

Movie Review: <em>The Tortured</em> (2010)
While looking for movies featuring Bill Moseley, I stumbled across The Tortured on Netflix. I read the description and must admit to being intrigued, if not exactly wowed. I decided to give it a shot, being less than 90 minutes, it wasn’t exactly going to b...

Movie Review: <em>Beyond the 7th Door</em>
Beyond the 7th Door is a movie that almost defies explanation. It is a movie that was made on the tiniest of budgets, with the tiniest of casts, and once it was made it seemed to pass directly into legend. It did not pass Go and I am pretty sure it did not ...
