The Thing – Review (Scream Factory Collector’s Edition Blu-ray)

I could ramble on with this review and waste your time, but do you really need to be told to watch John Carpenter’s other masterpiece (the first being Halloween) The Thing? The film is pure perfection in every form and it’s something that will live on for generations. I never personally tackled reviewing The Thing on this site before, because I just don’t see the point. Us horror...

John Carpenter’s Village of the Damned (Blu-ray / Movie Review)

I’m sure a majority of us can all agree that John Carpenter’s work started to degrade as the mid ’90s rolled around, with his last really good movie probably being In the Mouth of Madness, released in 1994. In 1995, JC decided it would be neat to remake the classic Village of the Damned for some odd reason and we got an okay effort, nothing spectacular, but not awful either....

Check out these Awesome Halloween Short Films!

I’ve been on a kick recently watching Halloween short films on YouTube and boy, are there some real gems out there, which brings me to this quick post. I wanted to share with you my visitors, some pretty darn good short (well, shortish, as each is around an hour long) films, that I absolutely thought were brilliant, especially given the fact that these two shorts had only weeks to write, fil...

Body Bags Movie Review

Release: August 8th, 1993 Rating: R Run time: 91 min Starring: John Carpenter, Mark Hamill  Director: John Carpenter, Tobe Hooper  Official Trailer: Body Bags This movie has been on my radar for a very, very long time and I somehow always managed to just push it to the side and let my expectations build and build. After finally settling down and giving it a watch, I’m came out thinking it...

The Ward Movie Review

Release: 2010, Rating: R, Runtime: 88 min. There use to be a time, when John Carpenter’s name attached to a movie, meant something special. Then Ghosts of Mars came along and shat all over that. The Ward seems to continue that trend, by giving us a used up formula, weak chills and a lame ass ending. Also, what the frak is with the movie not having John Carpenter as the composer? That’s...

Prince of Darkness Movie Review

Release: 1987, Rating: R, Runtime: 102 min. I call myself a John Carpenter fan and here I was, never having seen Prince of Darkness before. Well, that all changed, as I finally got around to popping that DVD in and giving it a spin. So, was it worth the wait, or should I have let it be and keep it a mystery? Read on the devilish results… Short nitty-gritty plot description from IMDb is as fo...
