Film Review: Contamination (1982)

Contamination was another “splatteriffic” film that I picked up from this year’s Arrow Video Festive Sale. It was released in 1980 and directed by Luigi Cozzi. He made a Hercules movie and a Godzilla movie. He did some stuff to honor Dario Argento as well. For the most part, though, we only care about him because of this movie. Contamination is an alien exploitation film that will remind you of everything from Hell of the...

Film Review: CURSE OF THE WITCH’S DOLL (2018)

Even though evil dolls have been around since the beginning of film, it was ANNABELLE that reanimated it. And CURSE OF THE WITCH’S DOLL may well be the film to kill it again. Beginning with a prologue set in 1660 in which a witch is dragged off to her doom as her doll, (with eyes that look oddly plastic given the time period), watches. We then jump ahead to 1942, Adeline (Helen Crevel SURVIVAL INSTINCT) and her daughter Chloe (Layla...

Film Review: CUTE LITTLE BUGGERS (2017)

You have to give director Tony Jopia (DEADTIME, DAWNING OF THE DEAD) credit for letting us know right from the go just what to expect from CUTE LITTLE BUGGERS. Within the first few minutes we get aliens here to mate with our women, a set of large, bare, silicone enhanced breasts, tentacles, killer rabbits and a bloody impalement. Shakespeare this isn’t.

Film Review: CRACKBABY BILLIONAIRE (2017)

It took me a long time to get around to seeing Crackbaby Billionaire from Sleaze Box veteran John Miller. I reviewed his ultra-violent, sleazy film Skumbagz a couple years ago. Crackbaby Billionaire uses many familiar elements from Miller’s past works. His post-modern/hip-hop infused portrayals of the underbelly of society are still very apparent in these films. Similar to low-budget filmmakers like Dakota Bailey, Miller is constantly...

Film Review: COLD MOON (2016)

Although best known today for his writing for the screen with credits on, among others, THE NIGHTMARE BEFORE CHRISTMAS, BEETLJUICE and THINNER, the late Michael McDowell was also a prolific and successful author. Surprisingly none of his books have been adapted until now, with the arrival of COLD MOON, based on his second novel “Cold Moon over Babylon”. When a sixteen year old girl turns up dead, tied to her bicycle in the ominously...

Film Review: CREEPER (2012)

Creeper was a film that was directed by Matthew Gunnoe back in 2012. It was released by Unearthed Films, and is currently available to stream for free on Amazon Prime Video. This is the only film that I haven’t purchased before viewing. I didn’t even know their titles were available on any streaming services. This was released to a minimal amount of hype awhile back. It seemed like I was seeing it get overshadowed by Bloodshock on...

Film Review: CLOWNTERGEIST (2017)

CLOWNTERGEIST, yes you read the title right. And just as you could be excused for thinking you’d misread it, you could also be excused for thinking it’s either a bad parody or a real reach for a plot. But that would be a mistake, because while no classic, this is a very enjoyable film. Emma (Brittany Belland THE SLEEPER) has an intense fear of clowns, this is a real bad thing as Ribcage the Clown (Eric Corbin SACRIFICE) has turned up...
