BEFORE I WAKE (2016) Director: Mike Flanagan Writers: Mike Flanagan, Jeff Howard Stars: Kate Bosworth, Thomas Jane, Jacob Tremblay, Annabeth Gish, Dash Mihok, Antonio Evan Romero There are films that are obviously made to appeal to hardcore horror fans. TERRIFIER, HOSTEL, the V/H/S series. There are films that are made for those who like their scares a bit more cerebral than gory. IT FOLLOWS, STARRY EYES, IT COMES AT NIGHT. And then,...

Steven’s Stupid Stash Synopsis: The Blue Underground Killer Thrillers Collection

Blue Underground has taken multiple routes when it comes to packaging their releases over the years. Films that were given DVD releases back in the day sometimes received the BD upgrade. Many of these individual releases also got put into Midnight Movie sets ranging from two to five films. The Killer Thrillers collection is a set I recently picked up for less than twenty bucks when they were on sale through Deep Discount.  I already...

BODY MELT (1993) Director: Philip Brophy Writers: Philip Brophy, Rod Bishop Stars: Gerard Kennedy, Andrew Daddo, Regina Gaigalas, Ian Smith, Robert Simper, Vincent Gil Where do I even begin with Aussie co-writer/director PHILIP BROPHY’S low-budget ‘splat-stick’ romp from 1993, BODY MELT? When keeping an eye out for films to review for this site, I try to make sure that they’re as relevant to the BENEATH THE UNDERGROUND ethos as...

Film Review: BETTER WATCH OUT! (2016)

BETTER WATCH OUT! (2016) Director: Chris Peckover Writers: Zack Kahn, Chris Peckover Stars: Levi Miller, Olivia DeJonge, Ex Oxenbould, Virginia Madsen, Patrick Warburton, Dacre Montgomery BETTER WATCH OUT!, from director CHRIS PECKOVER, makes it clear from jump: it is NOT here to make your “Yuletide gay.” In fact, it’s about as far from straight (as in ‘straight-and-narrow’) as any effed-up holiday slasher freak-out can get. Written...

Film Review: Blade of the Immortal (2017)

Director: Takashi Miike Stars: Takuya Kimura, Hana Sugisaki, Sôta Fukushi Blade of the Immortal is a film based on Manga, directed by Takashi Miike. I recently picked this one up when I was scouring the Amazon Warehouse deals. This is a great place to look  for DVD and BD films because you usually get good used deals as long as you have Prime shipping. I find it to be hit or miss, with the pricing to be inconsistent and sometimes a...

Every Unearthed Films Release, Ranked and Rated: Part 5 of 5 (TOP TEN!!)

As we approach top 10 territory, I realize that these are the films that I have watched an almost unhealthy number of times. These are examples of horror film history. They come from all over the world and exemplify the best of multiple sub-genres of extreme horror.  10.5??? Coming in tenth place was essentially a tie between Marcus Koch’s insane clown film 100 Tears. It is a cult classic, and possibly the best movie I’ve...

Every Unearthed Films Release, Ranked and Rated: Part 3 of 5 (#21-#35)

This portion of the list is where things become extremely brutal. It holds most of the 3.5 star ratings and definitely thrusts most collectors of extreme horror into the must-own range. Numbers 31-35 are a worldly mixture of gore films. They go across multiple genres, all being solid examples of their craft. Black Sun is widely considered one of the most disturbing films of all time. It really just edged out Philosophy of Knife when I...
