21 Days 'til Halloween, 2014: Le démon dans l'île aka The Demon Is On The Island (1983)

Now this truly is an obscure horror film. Unfairly obscure.

If it weren’t for the fact it is French and the current trend for genre enthusiasts is dredging the depths of American (or English speaking) horror films for ever more elusive titles, I would guarantee that this one will be “rediscovered” sometime soon, released on DVD along with a limited run at hipster theaters, and find its fair share of adoring fans. 561 more words

24 Days 'til Halloween, 2014: Bloody Moon aka Die Säge des Todes (1981)

Jesús Franco is probably best known to casual genre fans for his psychosexual, psychedelic sexploitation horror films from the 60s and 70s. Characterized by incessant zooming, groovy music and languorous pacing, at their very best they crossed over from pure “exploitation” into experimental cinema. 432 more words

31 Days # 5 - Class of Nuke 'Em High Review

Watch Free on Youtube on Troma’s Official Channel

I have never seen Nuke’Em High. Nor it’s sequels. Not that I thought badly of them, Troma and I have a decent relationship, minus that awful Poultrygeist, I like most of their releases. 202 more words

26 Days 'til Halloween, 2014: Maya (1989)

So last year I went on an 80s Italo-horror binge that knew no bounds beyond availability. It was triggered, thankfully, by a fortuitous late night viewing of a wonderfully, achingly, benignly twisted little movie called HOUSE OF LOST SOULS. 303 more words

IMDB: http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0099763/?ref_=nv_sr_1



Well, this went awry quicker than normal. Honestly I work full time, and have been battling my borderline on top of this all a lot lately, so have not had time, energy nor desire to watch anything. 329 more words

27 Days 'til Halloween, 2014: The Changeling (1980)

How is it that it’s been thirty years since they came out and we still haven’t had a haunted house movie better or even close in quality to THE CHANGELING (1980), THE HAUNTING (1963), or THE LEGEND OF HELL HOUSE (1973)? 175 more words
