Soundtrack Review: Umberto Lenzi’s EATEN ALIVE! (NSFW)

In Random Rants, Reviews by Corey0 Comments

Cannibal films are an acquired taste. They’re most certainly never easy to swallow and only the hardcore of horror fans can truly appreciate them in all of their flesh eating glory. In 1980, CANNIBAL HOLOCAUST was released and became the standard on which all cannibal films would forever be judged. Ruggero Deodato’s film is remembered for numerous reasons but Riz …

In Movies, Random Rants by Peggy0 Comments

Ah, Valentine’s Day. That time of year when love is in the air, Cupid is flittering about with his quiver of arrows, and people in general are swept up in the Hallmark™ hysteria involving candy, flowers, jewelry, and a whole lotta ‘bow-chicka-bow-wow’. I’m not here to talk about that kinda love. I’m here to shed some light on that lesser …

Silent Night, Deadly Night Series Review – Part 2

Remember how I said Part One of this series had lazy writing? Well forget that. I’m pretty sure the creative geniuses for this movie took longer to finish up their post coffee morning dump than to write this screenplay. Silent Night, Deadly Night: Part 2 begins with Ricky, the younger brother of the serial killer Santa from the first film. He’s in …

Is it weird to review a book of reviews? It’s like googling Google (WARNING: do not attempt that.

The Paul Feige led campaign has been met with mixed (internet) opinion, with much dissention coming from the collective fanbase of the 1984 original film. So here’s what we’ve seen: 1.) Contrary to Feig’s assurance that this is a completely separate timeline/universe …
