Film Review: KRAMPUS (2015)

His legend has existed for centuries, going so far back, in fact, that there is a school of thought that he actually pre-dated Santa Claus, NOT the other way around.  He’s been making appearances and been a so-called “special guest” in a lot of horror anthologies and holiday-themed, slasher-centric movies, most notably in A CHRISTMAS HORROR STORY.  But it was high-time that KRAMPUS got to have his own movie, and who better to handle...

Top 10 RAPE/REVENGE films by Samuel Glass Jr

Is there anything more controversial, a subject more touchy and fraught with ‘triggers’ these days, than the rape/revenge sub-genre? I have already reviewed movies that provided the perfect motivation for payback, but does revenge ever go deeper, than when it’s taken at the hands of a woman who has been wrongfully, brutally violated?  There’s even ANOTHER level to explore, when you get into a male character seeking revenge for sexual...

100% certified fresh by Rotten Tomatoes.  Critically lauded across the board, especially for being the ‘debut’ film for writer/director JORDAN PEELE.  Making CRAZY amounts at the box office, for the relatively tiny budget it had. Exactly how does one review a movie with the current pedigree of GET OUT, without ruining it for those who haven’t seen it? And should it be advised to those same people, to believe all the hype around it?...

TOP 10 REVENGE THRILLERS

Revenge is a disk best served rented, or streamed. At least that’s the way I look at it. I mean, let’s face it – about 90% of the movies that feature ghosts, slashers or other monsters, human or supernatural, are always based at their core on some kind of vengeance…even upon those who may have inherited “the sins of the fathers” – or mothers, as it were. In no real particular order, let me run down for you 10 of my...
