10 Cloverfield Lane: Movie Review

10 Cloverfield Lane: Movie Review

Synopsis: Michelle is run off the road and awakens in a bunker with her leg chained to the wall.  She was “saved” by Howard, a large man who is a terrible combination of socially awkward and not-so-vaguely threatening.  He explains that there has been an attack and the air outside is contaminated.  Do we believe him, or is that just something he said so that she wouldn’t try to escape from the bunker? There is also another man in the…

The Conjuring 2: Spoilery Thoughts

The Conjuring 2: Spoilery Thoughts

I already wrote a review of The Conjuring 2, but I have some questions that would spoil the movie, so I opted to put them in a different post.  Because I am a kind soul. 1. Lorraine was able to defeat the demon – Valak – by saying his name, screaming other things and condemning him back to hell.  Or something.  She only knew his name because Valak told her his name in a vision.  “I know his name, I…

Thoughts on Independence Day: Resurgence

Thoughts on Independence Day: Resurgence

Alien invaders count as horror, right? I thought so. Here are a handful of random thoughts about Independence Day: Resurgence. 1. Brent Spiner is a perfectly fine actor, but Dr. Okun was entirely too prominent in this movie.  The first Independence Day was the perfectly amount of Okun: get in, say some awkward things for laughs, have an alien tentacle wrapped around his neck and get out. For this movie, it was almost like someone said, “Hey, what if we…

Poltergeist (2015): Movie Review

Poltergeist (2015): Movie Review

As I’ve mentioned many times in the past, I got into horror pretty late in my life.  I remember watching some horror in my early teens, but it didn’t really hook me until my mid-to-late-twenties. Maybe that is the reason the trend of remaking treasured horror movies doesn’t really bother me. Even if I really like an older horror film, I don’t have the nostalgia for it that a lot of people do.  (Then again, I watched Ghostbusters many times…

It Follows: Review

It Follows: Review

    With It Follows being released on Blu Ray last week, have a mish-mash of unconnected thoughts. – It’s hard to ignore the obvious Halloween references throughout the film.  All the wide shots from a steadicam.  The calm, tree-lined suburban streets with more than a hint of evil lurking.  The pulsing synth.  The fact that the supernatural killer is referred to as “The It” in interviews, which is pretty close to “The Shape”.  I kept waiting for Michael Myers…

WolfCop: Movie Review

WolfCop: Movie Review

My mother always said, “If you ain’t howlin’, you ain’t livin’.” Did Lou Garou’s mother tell him the same thing?  No way to know for sure.  If I were to guess, I’d say “yes”. “Howl, young man, HOOOOOOOWWWWWWWWL,” she’d say with fire in her eyes, and Lou would nod and take a swig of his father’s whiskey.  No donuts, though.  Not during mother’s lessons.  Never during mother’s lessons. Lou would howl.  He’d howl until his howler was sore.  “Why, mother?”…

Reilly, Molly Shannon, Cheryl Hines, Paul Reiser, Anna Kendrick, Dan DeHaan, Matthew Gray Gubler, Garry Marshall It’s a well-known fact that I enjoy zombie movies.  Because I have seen so many, I find myself drawn to films that are a bit different from the norm.  I like seeing…

Cabin Fever: Patient Zero Review

Cabin Fever: Patient Zero Review

2014 Starring Sean Astin, Currie Graham and Ryan Donowho Directed By Kaare Andrews Following in the shoes of Ti West and Eli Roth has to be a daunting task. Ti West – the man responsible for some of the best horror films of the last 10 years – made a bad Cabin Fever movie, so how could Kaare Andrews make this one succeed? Trying to up the ante in films that were already batshit crazy doesn’t seem possible, so what…

The Granny review

The Granny review

Review by Zena S. Dixon The Granny was directed by Luca Bercovici and released in 1995. With the title of the film, you should know what you’re getting into. The film opens to a medieval exorcism involving a father and daughter. As expected, death makes its appearance in this situation. The daughter quickly manages to wrap her legs around her father’s head, holding him in a leg lock as she squeals, “Lick me, lick me down there! I have no teeth down there!” This awesome line…

Deliver Us From Evil review

Deliver Us From Evil review

Review by Zena S. Dixon In the film Deliver Us From Evil, we follow a tough police sergeant named Ralph Sarchie in New York City, who encounters a series of increasingly creepy events that occur in the Bronx. Ralph used to be a Catholic and due to that he isn’t a believer in the supernatural…yet!  Throughout the film Ralph is known for his “radar” which is an ability to sense when something is worth looking into. Since Ralph has his radar, him…

Dead Snow 2: Red vs. Dead mini review

Dead Snow 2: Red vs. Dead mini review

I will talk to anyone and everyone about the extent of my love for the first Dead Snow.  It’s a little slow out of the gate, but it eventually delivers the full-fledged insanity I hoped that it would, while still developing characters I wanted to spend some time with.  It’s one of my favorite zombie movies of the past 5 years.  What Tommy Wirkola was able to do on a small budget (roughly $800K) is nothing short of extraordinary. As…

Wolf Creek 2 review

Wolf Creek 2 review

Review by Christopher Maynard Wolf Creek 2 2013 Directed by Greg McLean Starring John Jarratt, Ryan Corr and Shannon Ashlyn One of the great things about Wolf Creek 2 is you should know pretty quickly if this is your kind of movie or not. This is a movie with no aspirations to be anything more than an over the top, gore-soaked good time.  The only question is this: what constitutes a good time to you?  Give it five minutes and…

Chained

Chained

Review by Christopher Maynard Chained 2012 Directed By Jennifer Chambers Lynch Starring Vincent D’Onofrio, Julia Ormond, Eamon Farron Ever since Stanley Kubrick’s 1987 masterpiece Full Metal Jacket, Vincent D’Onofrio has been an actor you should pay attention to. With movies as varied as Happy Accidents, JFK, Men in Black, The Break Up and the upcoming Jurassic World, the only common thread in D’Onofrio’s work is the quality of the performances he turns in. This man has range. Even when I…
