The Horror Show (1989) review

The Horror ShowReviewed by Kevin Scott

The Horror Show (1989)
Written by: Alan Smithee, Allyn Warner, Leslie Bohem
Directed by: James Isaac, David Blyth
Cast: Lance Henriksen (Detective Lucas McCarthy), Brion James (Max Jenke), Rita Taggart (Donna McCarthy), Dedee Pfeiffer (Bonnie McCarthy), Aron Eisenberg (Scott McCarthy), Thom Bray (Peter Campbell), Matt Clark (Dr. Tower), Terry Alexander (Casey)

Some films aren’t served very well by their titles. A name is just a name, but then again, first impressions can seal the deal. I didn’t see The Horror Show until about a week ago. My cursor has been looming over it in my Netfix queue for quite some time. The title is so ambiguous, that it could be anything. The key word is anything, and I will see anything with Lance Henriksen in it. He’s become the stuff of legends. He’s one of the few character actors that have transcended anonymity into bona fide celebrity territory. It couldn’t have happened to a nicer guy, and I’ve liked him ever since his first turns as one of Cameron’s ensemble players, his roles as the bad guys in 90’s action films, and whatever he pops up in now. He’s a good actor, and just as at home in something just for fun, or something unsettling and terrifying.

The poster art included with this review gives a little more info that the poster art I saw. Obviously, it has something to do with an electric chair. “Meat Cleaver Max” Jenke is the vilest of the vile serial killers. He’s about to meet his Maker with absolutely no remorse for what he’s done to his victims. Looking on is the guy who caught him, Lucas McCarthy. He’s a hard boiled cop that just wants this nightmare to be over. Catching Jenke nearly took the wind out of his sails, and he’s struggling to cope. Jenke swears vengeance on McCarthy just before the switch is pulled. After Jenke is history, Lucas settles in to devote some time to his wife, daughter, and son. His serenity is short lived when he begins to have visions of Jenke back from the grave. He begins to think that he’s going crazy until he’s visited by Peter Campbell, a guy who’s been studying Jenke.

Creeper (2012) movie review

CREEPER MovieBy Jonathan Weichsel

As a horror reviewer I come across trailers for neo-Grindhouse and exploitation movies all the time that promise to be shocking, or sexy, or depraved, and inevitably when I sit down to watch one of these movies for review it ends up being some lame shot on video piece of shit with in-camera sound and no score, featuring jokes ripped off from South Park, zero story structure, and if there are naked women, they are women that you do not under any circumstances want to see naked. I usually watch about ten minutes of such a film and then don't bother to write a review.

Creeper (Written and Directed by Matthew Gunnoe, starring Darryl Baldwin, Monica Chambers, Rohnja Morrow) might not be a masterpiece of horror cinema, but it is a horror/exploitation film that is better made than most, and delivers where other films in the neo-Grindhouse genre fall short. I Spit on Your Grave isn't a masterpiece of horror cinema either, but it is an effective shocker, and if it weren't for the tablet computers and other modern technology, Creeper would feel right at home playing as a double feature with this film on 42nd street in the late 1970's.

Most of the new wave of exploitation films look like they were made by a bunch of stoned high school students after school and on the weekends. This is not what I want when I watch underground cinema. I have written this before, but it's worth saying again, I want to watch underground films that look like they were actually made by crazy people, films that actually appear to have come from the underground.

Creeper feels like a movie that was written and directed by someone who really, really, really hates women, like some kind of male rights activist. At times it seems like the film's sole purpose is to show how bitchy women can be, and the rest of the time its sole purpose is to punish women for being bitchy. Creeper is possibly the most misogynistic film to come out of the current era of misogynistic filmmaking, but I say that if you have a controversial point of view, and you want to make an exploitation movie expressing that point of view, then you should take your point of view as far as it can possibly go. If you don't do this, then you are not making underground cinema. Creeper therefore, is exactly the kind of underground film I want to watch.

MUCKby Seth Metoyer

Writer/director Steve Wolsh is getting ready to MUCK you up, again.

Bunny Boilers: Ten of the most evil serial killers ever

Dandy American Horror Story Serial Killer Freak Show

When we hear the phrase serial killer we may automatically think of men – but some of the most deadly murderers in history are female. We may like to play simple games based on crime, death and intrigue such as the themed slots you would find at SuperCasino, but the reality is often horrific – and sometimes comes with an XX chromosome. Here’s a top ten list of evil women in history.

1) Myra Hindley
The 'Moors Murderers', Hindley and her boyfriend Ian Brady, killed five young people in the 1960s in Manchester, England, sexually assaulting four of them. Several bodies were left on bleak, desolate moorland; the corpse of Keith Bennett has never been found. The judge described Hindley and Brady, who used axes, blades and even pieces of string to murder their victims, as “two sadistic killers of the utmost depravity.”

2) Miranda Barbour
Officially, the ‘Craigslist Killer’ and her husband Elytte killed just one victim named Troy Laferrara, who had responded to an advertisement for ‘female companionship'. However Barbour has stated in various interviews that she killed at least 22 others in a six year bloodbath across the US, fuelled by Satanic beliefs. The 19-year-old has expressed no remorse throughout the case –here’s how the New York Post has covered her crimes.

3) Rosemary West
West and her husband Fred are the third couple on this list to wreak unspeakable havoc. She was convicted of 10 murders in 1995, committed in the ‘Cromwell Street House of Horrors’ in Gloucester – including the couple’s 16-year-old daughter Heather. There are many parallels between Hindley and West, including the sadistic sexual nature of the crimes, and the fact that some remains have never been discovered.

4) Belle Gunness
This Norwegian immigrant used her imposing six foot frame to kill anywhere between 25 and 40 people across America, collecting insurance, cash and valuables on the way. The list included two husbands, multiple potential lovers and several of her own children. Gunness was never sentenced for her crimes; her body was found following a fire at her home in Chicago in 1908 - along with many others.

Blood Glacier (aka The Station) review

Blood GlacierReviewed by Kevin Scott

Blood Glacier (2013)
Written by: Benjamin Hessler
Directed by: Marvin Kren
Cast: Gerhard Liebman (Janek), Edita Malovcic (Tanja), Brigitte Kren (Ministerin Bodicek), Hille Beseler (Birte), Peter Knaack (Falk), Santos (Tinnie), Felix Romer (Harald), Wolfgang Pampel (Bert Kakauer)

I don’t want to lead anyone astray on what this film is about. Just from reading the plot before I watched it, I gathered that it could be labeled as eco horror, which for the most part, I guess it is. Here we go though, putting labels on stuff, when all the old classic throwback horror from the 1950’s of mutated whatevers caused by radiation or some other ecological sin man created was just a scary movie. That’s how I prefer to look at it.

This is an Austrian film, and it takes place at a remote mountain research station in the Swiss Alps. There’s a small group of scientists that are studying the effects of climate change in some of the most delicate environments. Janek is the hardcore guy of the group whose a hard drinkin’, hard smokin’ everyman, but really knows his stuff, and even if some of his coworkers don’t like him, that’s too bad. He’s been there longer than anyone else, and knows the terrain better than anyone. He’s a loner by nature, and really only likes his dog, Tinnie. He makes a discovery of a sinister looking red liquid oozing from a glacier. Baffled by what it is, he has to cut his inspection of it short, because his dog is attacked by something unidentifiable.

Book review: 'The Root Of All Evil' by Roberto Costantini

The Root of All EvilReviewed by Jesse Miller

Where does evil come from exactly? Is it born within each individual or is it made throughout that individual’s life, as a result of what they personally experience? The age old questions gets a fresh examination by Italian author Roberto Costantini in his gripping psychological thriller, actually the second entry of a trilogy in what is dubbed the Commissario Balisteri trilogy.

Looking to take a careful examination of the nature of evil, Costantini takes readers into the past of his character Michelino Balisteri and back into Tripoli, 1962 where a young Balisteri encounters characters that challenge his perception of what is right and what is wrong.

As The Root Of All Evil explores the coming-of-age story of Balisteri and his journey into adulthood, the novel also jumps into a narrative that takes place in an undetermined time, where a woman is held in a particularly nasty trap that would be worthy idea for a Saw film.

How does this narrative connect to the one that chronicles Michelino’s life from 1962 onwards? The answer lies in this richly detailed 676 paged Italian epic thriller that I couldn’t help but lose sleep over, as I was riveted by the world that was created by Costantini and compelled to keep turning the pages.

For starters, his prose and approach to the material is fresh by itself. A sprawling story that begins in Tripoli in 1962 and covers Italian characters while offering a study on the nature of evil? It is unique because it was something different to what an American novel that might try to do with the same subject.

Just like Dario Argento, whose work comes to mind when The Root Of All Evil gets nasty, or Takashi Shimizu, Costantini is a refreshing artist to come across and particularly for such a genre because it’s uniquely different to what I’ve been exposed to before I sat down to read this effort.

5th Annual Mile High Horror Film Festival 2014 review

Mile High Horror Film Festival 2014 Headerby Miss E.

Mile High Horror Film Festival
Oct. 9-12, 2014
Littleton, Colorado

The 5th Annual Mile High Horror Film Festival was a twisted cornucopia of live performance artists, vendors, horror icons, FX artists, shorts, full length features, classics, and live industry panel discussions that drew the most rabid of fans. The repetitious problem of this particular festival is that it is structured in such a way it is impossible to see and do everything, leaving the most enthusiastic of attendees with nagging doubts and fear of “missing something”.

Opening night featured the original 1977 The Hills Have Eyes with all it’s glorious, non-PC dialogue. Original star Michael Berryman (Pluto) provided behind the scenes stories in an engaging Q&A session preceding the screening.
Hosted by The Alamo Draft House, Champion of the Independent Film Genre, MHHFF is growing in attendance every year. With over 80 films from 17 countries, stand outs in the following categories are as follows:

Best Of Shorts:
Killer Karts- Winner from 2013, this is just the right amount of cheese to please. The Legend Of Beaver Dam- (2010) - Awesome story line and musical score. Tumult- (2012) One of the better concepts of disastrous blending of past and future.

Shorts Program One:
M is for Mobile- Disastrous results when a cell phone ends up in the wrong hands. Motel London 2- Local Colorado offering with excellent special effects. 2 Careful Owners- In depth sequel to the popular 1 Careful Owner from last year.

Shorts Program Two:
Atlanta Zombie Apocalypse- Cleverly written comedy about being trapped in a haunted house when the real terror is happening outside. M Is For Matchmaker- (Out take from ABC’s of Death) Finds second life with horror Queen Tiffany Sheppis as a demented matchmaker with unusual clientele. Tasha and Friends- Muppets on a murderous rampage. Peepers- Paranoia in suburbia. Rat Pack Rat- A Sammy Davis Jr. impersonator off of Craig’s List ends up on an unusual gig with a dying patient.

‘Aliens Night’ Short Film Review

Aliens NightReviewed by Jesse Miller,

ALIENS NIGHT is a lively science fiction short film starring Stefani Autuori and – here’s the best part – writing, shooting, editing, animation, directing and post production are all down by an Andrea Ricca. A huge accomplishment, yes?

ALIENS NIGHT is brisk and straight to the point: Aliens touch down looking to cause havoc and they met their match – an unnamed lady scientist (played with a certain cheekiness by Stefani Autuori) that will give them hell.

It’s a bare bones story but the rousing musical score and effective use of editing and camera angles make up for that small factor, making this exciting effort pretty much a display of Ricca’s skills as a film maker and a strong resounding reason why someone needs to hand him a script and a bigger sandbox to play in so he can get to work on a full length feature.

If you’ve got 7 minutes to spare, why not get comfortable and give this fun short a watch. You might be pleasantly surprised.
