The Corpse’s Five Days Of Christmas — BLACK CHRISTMAS (1974)

Christmas Eve is upon us, friends, and for the fourth of our “Five Days Of Christmas” holiday-themed horror film reviews, we offer my very own of one of the greatest (and my personal favorite!). Ahh, Christmas Eve!  I dunno what you Fellow Fans out there will be up to tonight; partying with family and friends,…

The ‘Corpse’s Five Days Of Christmas — A CHRISTMAS HORROR STORY (2015)

Day Two of our “Five Days Of Christmas”!  This one has several stories to “get you in the spirit”! Suppose I come to you Fellow Fans and tell you that I’ve got this flick I want you to check out; it’s a Christmas-themed anthology with crisscrossing storylines, touching on mythic creatures from Germanic and Celtic mythology, with elements…

The Corpse’s Five Days Of Christmas — SILENT NIGHT, BLOODY NIGHT (1972)

Hello, Fellow Fans!  In the spirit of the season, we’re featuring five reviews of our favorite Yuletide-themed horrors — one a day from now until Christmas!  Enjoy! There aren’t very many films that I’ve sat through on several occasions that still chill my blood when I revisit the experience.  Theodore Gershuny’s extremely underrated Silent Night,…

ABATTOIR (2016): Review…Collecting Tragedy

Lately, between James Wan and Oren Peli, the “haunted house” story seems to have become the go-to setup for the lion’s share of horror films today — with the Paranormal Activity,  Insidious,  and The Conjuring  franchises going strong, the old ghosties and their dwellings seem to be filling theaters quite a bit.  Though a bit more mainstream than my…

PANDORICA (2016): Review…Resetting The Future

Pandorica  is a film directed and written by Tom Paton. The film is a tale about the leadership trials of the Varosha, a small tribe who remain together after a large scale event called “The Great Reset”. We begin the film being introduced to three of the potential tribe leaders, Eiren (Jade Hobday), Ares (Marc Zammit),…

THE POSSESSION EXPERIMENT (2016): Review…A Less-Than-Desired Result

I like a good possession flick as much as the next guy — maybe more so.  Hell, The Exorcist  and it’s sequels (well, maybe not Exorcist II  or Dominion  so much — although both had some  merits) are amongst my favorite flicks, and in my capacity for horror enjoyment I can actually get behind The Last…

SiREN (2016): Review…She Still Likes You

Being very generous, I’ll figure that there’s maybe eight of you reading this that have never seen V/H/S.  Going way  out on a limb, I’ll say that of the rest of you, there’s maybe two or three that didn’t find the segment “Amateur Night” to be one of the best of the tales represented, if…

BLOOD HUNTERS (2016): Review…Death Is In Their Genes

At its core, Blood Hunters  (directed by Tricia Lee) is a story about redemption. Let me be honest, I found this review very difficult to do. BH is not a bad film by any means, but it seems like it sometimes struggles to find it’s footing — and the reason is that there are so…

TALES OF POE (2014): Review…Scream Queens Bring Poe Into The Modern Age

Along with H.P. Lovecraft and Stephen King, one of the big names associated with tales of terror in the last 100 years is, of course, Edgar Allan Poe.  Now before the list of your own favorite writers come crashing angrily into my inbox, I freely state that there are countless other great writers in the genre — but…

LAST GIRL STANDING (2015): Review…When The Credits Have Rolled

Most of us, even if we don’t wanna admit it, enjoy a good ol’ hack ‘n’ slash every now and then — I know I  do.  Between the likes of Michael and Jason, and even less celebrated names like Harry Warden, Madman Marz, or Cropsey, the allure of watching the standard group of young adults…

THE ID (2015): Review…Reaping The Harvest Of Madness

If Alfred Hitchcock taught us anything in 1960, it was that the real  monsters were the ones that look just like us.  Sure, Universal had it’s roster of big guns like Dracula, Frankenstein, and their brethren, and Hammer had picked up that string and, in many ways, got the kite higher.  But with Psycho  (and…
