Freddy Krueger’s Tales of Terror: Blind Date (Book #1) Book Review

Release: 1994, Pages: 156 See, I told you in the last book review that I wouldn’t be as long doing up another one. ‘Cause I enjoyed the last young adult Freddy Krueger novel so much, I decided to immediately dive into the first book in the series and finished it up in a two separate nights of reading. How does it fair compared to Twice Burned? Read on to find out… Short nitt...

Freddy Krueger’s Tales of Terror: Twice Burned (Book #4) Book Review

Release: 1995, Pages: 154 Okay, I’ll admit, I’ve been ultra slack on the book and video game reviews. I’ve been busy watching movies and taking action figure photos, that any time that would normally be spent on reading or playing games, is nil. That’s all changing today though, as I just finished reading a book, titled Freddy Krueger’s Tales of Terror: Twice Burned, ...

The Willies Movie Review

Release: 1990, Rated: PG-13, Runtime: 92 min. Okay, now I’m really starting to get into the obscure, lesser known films, with my review of The Willies, starring Sean Astin (The Goonies, The Lord of the Rings). Broken down into an anthology style with 2 main stories, The Willies is the perfect example of an 80s (well, not really, as the movie came out in 1990) kids horror film. Back then, kid...

Cheerleader Camp Movie Review

Release: 1988, Rated: R, Runtime: 89 min. Part comedy, part horror, part awful, Cheerleader Camp is many things, but is it a good movie? You’re opinion on that, really comes down to whether or not you can get over the hilariously poor acting and overall shoddy looking quality and enjoy it for what is, a low budget 80s slasher, with a fairly clever ending. If you’re interested in findin...

Brain Damage Movie Review

Release: 1988, Rated: R, Runtime: 84 min. Boy, was I not prepared going into this one. Chock full of sexual undertones, anti-drug messages and a weird talking slug monster named Aylmer, Brain Damage is a film that requires a certain taste to like it. As for me, I most definitely was hesitant at first on whether or not I liked it, but as I let the movie stew for awhile, it started to grow on me and...

Dolls Movie Review

Release: 1987, Rated: R, Runtime: 77 min.   So I finally got around to seeing this little gem from the 80s, called Dolls, directed by Stuart Gordon (Re-Animator) and brought to us from the same people that did Puppet Masters (a movie this one has a lot in common with). One of the first things you need to know before watching Dolls, is the acting is awful, just terrible. Stilted line deliverie...

Alligator Movie Review

Release: 1980, Rated: R, Runtime: 91 min. Watching Alligator reminded me of the time I watched C.H.U.D. I had a preconceived notion going in that the movie was going to be a giant cheese fest, loaded with ridiculous special effects and laughable acting. Colour me surprised and shocked, that Alligator shattered all those notions and gave me a stellar creature-feature, laudable acting and a dash of ...

The Slumber Party Massacre Movie Review

Release: 1982, Rated: R, Runtime: 77 min. The Slumber Party Massacre has a clear goal in mind. Show a good amount of nudity, along with a side order of driller mayhem. It runs a quick 76 minutes and doesn’t for one second have you guessing who the killer is, or what’s going to happen next. It may be a rinse and repeat slasher, but it never once has you thinking its anything less than w...

Zombie Lake Movie Review

Release: 1981, Rated: NR, Runtime: 90 min. I didn’t know that Zombie Lake was considered the worst zombie movie of all time before watching it, yet now that the movie has splashed FIN on the screen, I can honestly say, without a doubt, that Zombie Lake is a giant steaming pile of crap, destined to nestle itself deep into your brain, like some sort of bug and pick away at your brain cells one...

The Theatre Bizarre Movie Review

Release: 2011, Rated: NR, Runtime: 114 min. I love anthology films, as evident by my Creepshow 2 movie review. When watching one of these films, you feel like you’re getting short small stories, with quick resolutions and usually a neat little twist at the end. The Theatre Bizarre, is an anthology film, but it’s an awful, awful anthology film. One that feels like the sole purpose of th...

Lovely Molly Movie Review

Release: 2011, Rated: R, Runtime: 99 min. Newlyweds Tim and Molly move back into Molly’s deceased parents house and not too long into their stay, strange noises start happening at night and Molly slowly inches herself towards insanity. Is the haunting experiences all part of Molly’s awful drug addiction? Or are the things that are going bump in the night really out to get her? Lovely M...

Invasion of the Body Snatchers (1978) Movie Review

We now jump ahead a little over 20 years and take a look at the Invasion of the Body Snatchers remake of the same name. The movie was released in 1978 and although not a shot for shot remake of the original, it still obtains a lot of the same beats, but with a different, more bleak outcome. The movie is jammed packed full of well known faces and top of the line practical effects, but how does it c...
