Run and Kill (Infidelity Revenge Extreme Horror Comedy)

  For lovers of vintage Hong Kong weirdness, the gang over at Error 4444 have got all bases covered with an eclectic lineup of releases and a future slate of titles that are downright mouth-watering. This month, they truly became my heroes for giving “Bloody” Billy Tang’s Run and Kill the Blu-ray release that it […]

The Black Room (Gother than The Hunger Horror Thriller)

The Black Room (Gother than The Hunger Horror Thriller)

  One of the most beautiful things about the “Boutique Label” movement is the careful consideration and attention paid to films that have simply flown under the proverbial radar and been ignored for far too long. Hyped considerably by Bill Landis in the pages of Sleazoid Express yet ignored elsewhere, Elly Kenner and Norman Thaddeus […]

A Gun for Jennifer (Poster Says it All Revenge Thriller)

A Gun for Jennifer (Poster Says it All Revenge Thriller)

  It’s “Vinegar Syndrome Month” here at Deaf Sparrow and this writer would like to highlight two exceptional releases that are currently flying under the proverbial radar. These are criminally underrated films that will blow your fucking socks off if given the chance yet through some bizarre circumstances or just poor judgment on behalf of […]

Mother’s Day (I Love Mommy Rape Revenge Slasher)

Mother’s Day (I Love Mommy Rape Revenge Slasher)

  Upon release in 1980, Charles Kaufman’s Mother’s Day has confused, enraged and intrigued audiences the world over with its uneasy mixture of crude humor and sheer terror. Made famous by a scathing takedown by Roger Ebert and praise from FANGORIA, the film continues to baffle with its tonal shifts. Either way, it’s an unforgiving […]

Cemetery Man (Grotesque and Sublime Zombie Horror Comedy)

Cemetery Man (Grotesque and Sublime Zombie Horror Comedy)

  The last great hope for Italian genre cinema, Michele Soavi’s Dellamorte Dellmore (christened Cemetery Man by October Films upon it’s US release in 1996) feels like the end of an era on celluloid. This beautiful, haunting and elegiac story of love and loss in land haunted by the undead has been tough to find […]

Suitable Flesh (Sexy Kinky Lovecraftian Body Swap Horror)

Suitable Flesh (Sexy Kinky Lovecraftian Body Swap Horror)

  With the passing of director Stuart Gordon and the unwarranted attention paid to the grossly overrated Color Out of Space, we as an audience are experiencing an outrageous resurgence in the proliferation of H.P. Lovecraft adaptations. Written by Re-Animator scribe Dennis Paoli, Suitable Flesh would be the last film Lovecraft would be caught dead […]

The Last Horror Film (Onanistic Maniacal Horror Comedy)

The Last Horror Film (Onanistic Maniacal Horror Comedy)

  With the success of 1980’s Maniac, producer Judd Hamilton saw dollar signs in the torrid team-up of the beautiful Caroline Munro and quirky character actor Joe Spinell. As a result, we were graced by the truly bizarre The Last Horror Film (lensed at the 1981 Cannes Film Festival as The Fanatic) less than two […]

The Abomination (Cancerous Death Lump Splatter Horror)

The Abomination (Cancerous Death Lump Splatter Horror)

  I have been fascinated by Bret McCormick’s The Abomination ever since I first saw a truly hideous poster for it (see above) in John McCarty’s indispensable book The Sleaze Merchants. Something about the sly smile on the bloody teenager in the Izod and Ray Bans intrigued me and I knew I had to see this […]

When Evil Lurks (Bloody Mess Argentine Possession Film)

When Evil Lurks (Bloody Mess Argentine Possession Film)

  There’s been a veritable buttload of hype about this When Evil Lurks flick swarming out of Fantastic Fest. Normally, my bullshit detector goes off whenever these dorks go all gushy for the latest dose of grossolalia. Well, I’ve never been happier to eat some crow than now because When Evil Lurks is not just […]

Don’t Answer the Phone (Disturbed Veteran Slasher Shlock)

Don’t Answer the Phone (Disturbed Veteran Slasher Shlock)

  Taking it back to the Dawn of the Reagan Era this month with Don’t Answer the Phone. This by-the-numbers Kenneth Bianchi/Ted Bundy schlocker is elevated to somewhere near greatness by a balls-out performance by Nicholas Worth that will leave you grasping your chair in genuine fear. As for the rest of the film? Well, […]
