The Satan Killer (Thrift Store Mulleted Death Machine Action Thriller Junk)

  Sometimes hitting the video shelves at your local Goodwill/Thrift Store of your choice or the farthest reaches of the Internet is like the Lament Configuration from Hellraiser. You either wind up completely peeled or discover a new form of chocolate stroke you never knew existed. This month, we’ll be diving into the discount bin […]

Evil Laugh (Sordid Skeleton Kink Slasher)

Evil Laugh (Sordid Skeleton Kink Slasher)

  By 1986, the slasher subgenre had all but run its course. After the one-two punch of Halloween and Friday the 13th raked in serious box office, every major and indie distribution company had to take a stab at the formula, thus creating a surplus of largely forgettable junk. The “Law of Diminishing Returns” set […]

Story of a Junkie (IRL Drug Culture Docudrama)

  The crown jewel in the paste crown of the Troma Team, Lech Kowalski’s Story of a Junkie (originally filmed as Gringo) is a wild trip through despair and addiction on the sordid streets of the Lower East Side circa 1983. Depressing, exhilarating, refreshing and a marked contrast from the usual Troma swill, Story of […]

Irréversible (Reverse Order Rape Revenge Thriller)

  Sooner or later, everything you know and love will be taken from you. When it happens, the only thing that separates you from everyone else is how you react. Do you suck up your pride and cry into your beer? Do you pack up and take matters into your own hands? Once you do, […]

Manhattan Zodiac ’77 (Modern Giallo Slasher Trashterpiece)

  Hell has finally frozen over… The 1970s and 1980s Grindhouse era of exploitation cinema spawned a curious breed of trendy bullshit infesting streaming sites and video shelves. Blame Tarantino and Rodriguez for this, their failed gimmick inspired a phalanx of imitators who couldn’t tell you the difference between Violent Shit and Dawn of the […]

Primal Rage (Giallo Bio-Horror)

Primal Rage (Giallo Bio-Horror)

  At the tail end of the 1980s, the Italian horror business was in crisis mode. Argento had fled after Opera for an attempt at grabbing the brass ring of a career in America. Fulci had taken ill and his sporadic output suffered as a result. Lamberto Bava never fulfilled his early promise and Michele […]

The Scarlet Worm (Abortion Brothel Revenge Western)

  Normally, I have a policy not to review movies made by friends and acquaintances because I actually value the people in my life and it would suck if I wrote a bad review and lost a good friend in the process. That said, I’m glad to be breaking company policy today because The Scarlet […]

Calamity of Snakes (Reptilian Slaughter Horror Comedy)

  Well, well, well…it looks like my big buddy Stephen Biro released another decent movie. Praise Allah. In another case of broken clocks telling the right time twice a day, Unearthed Films unleashes Calamity of Snakes. This truly obscure 1983 Hong Kong disasterpiece has languished on the likes of cheap Brentwood DVD sets for far too […]

Phenomena (Italian Psychic Power Insect Horror)

  Dario Argento is a legend for many reasons, a director with a body of work most directors would kill for. While his work of recent memory has been scattershot at best, there’s no denying that he was on a tear from Deep Red until possibly The Stendhal Syndrome (some would say Opera). Today, we’re […]

Cocaine Bear (Drug Addicted Nature Horror Comedy)

Cocaine Bear (Drug Addicted Nature Horror Comedy)

  Where did Elizabeth Banks come from? After the loathsome reattempt at a Charlie’s Angels revamp, Banks has apparently channeled her inner mad lad and gone plumb nuts with the absolutely savage Cocaine Bear. Is this thing stupid and needlessly gory? You better believe it. It’s also more fun than you’d imagine. This is Raising Arizona […]
