Review: ALL THROUGH THE HOUSE

In Movies by Duff0 Comments

There is a big knife-shaped fuzzy warm gooey place in my heart for this low-budget slasher flicks. Chocolates? Nope. Give this guys some mindless violence, naive characters and devoted killer and I’m all yours. Watching All Through The House, I keep wanting Rhonda Sheer to interrupt every 15 mins some silly antics and a commercial for Duckman. Yes, I’m dating …

‘The Monster’ Is Here!

In Coming Soon, Movies by Bub Smith0 Comments

Bryan Bertino created one of the best horror movies with The Strangers. A flick that does not get enough credit for how great it is. Not only was it loved by me, but it also turned a nice little profit. This normally means we would get a slew of movies from the film maker, but in the 8 years since …

Blu Ray Review: The Mind’s Eye

In DVD/BluRay, Movies, Reviews by Bub Smith0 Comments

A couple of years back writer/director Joe Begos put out the ultra-low budget sci-fi/horror flick ‘Almost Human’ and I hated it.  Hate may be a tad strong, but what Begos was attempting was WAY out of his wheelhouse and while the heart was there, the movie suffered. Although, I have to give Begos credit, the man has balls the size …

Movie Review: Without Name

If the very first thing onscreen at the beginning of a film is a warning that viewers are about to partake in scenes unsuitable for the photosensitive and/or epileptic, my expectations of the film automatically skyrocket, especially if said film purports to be “an eco-terror version of Polanski’s The Tenant.” Any project warning you right off the bat of its …

As the experiment ramps up, the kids start to think that the …
