Film Review: ZOMBIOLOGY: ENJOY YOURSELF TONIGHT

Well. WOW. How do I even begin? I went into director ALAN LO’S epic ZOMBIOLOGY with little to no expectations, save my past experiences with Asian horror/sci-fi/fantasy…the last encounter having worked out pretty well, considering it was another zombie thriller from South Korea, TRAIN TO BUSAN. This mostly Hong Kong production does share quite a few similarities, but diverges into SHAUN OF THE DEAD-country more often than not....

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: MOM AND DAD (2017)

It’s probably safe to say that every parent in existence today, or every one that EVER existed, has had that moment of pause: that split second when dealing with their kids, regardless of what age (ESPECIALLY with teenagers, though), when something’s gone wrong, or something has happened that turned a shit day into an even shittier day, thanks to their ‘little darlings’, and that thought has crossed their mind before they could even...

Film Review: AUSTRALIENS (2014)

AUSTRALIENS (2014) The synopsis reads as oddly as the film weaves itself: Ten year old, Australian born, Andi Gibson had what she describes as an encounter with a flying saucer. Although others think she is clearly insane to some degree, she begins to prove them wrong when extra- terrestrial beings begin to descend on Australia in a bizarre nation wide attack. With no assistance coming from any foreign countries, it is up to Andi and...

Film Review: South Mill District (2018)

Joe Meredith is a DIY horror writer/director. He’s known in small circles of effects guys and artists like James Bell and Phil Stevens. With his new release, South Mill District, he hopefully has a shot at a new level of independent film popularity.    Although this was a short film, coming in just under thirty minutes, I was impressed by its efficiency. It used standard voice-over narration, walking the viewer through a world...

Film Review: Blood Rage (1987)

Blood Rage is a one of the hidden gems from Arrow Video that I picked up at this year’s festive sale. Gore fiends and low-budget cult collectors from back in the day know all about this film. Some, however, need some education. Blood Rage was shot in Jacksonville, Florida in the early eighties and released in 1987. Directed by John Grissmer and starring Louise Lasser and Mark Soper, this was a film that seemed like it would get some...

Film Review: LONG NIGHT IN A DEAD CITY (2017)

If you’ve ever walked down a darkened, empty street in your town at some point, and felt that surreal, displaced feeling that all is not what it seemed – not even YOU, then LONG NIGHT IN A DEAD CITY, director RICHARD GRIFFIN’S own peripheral ode to CARNIVAL OF SOULS, will be just what you’re looking for. Griffin, together with life and producing partner TED MARR, has been the driving force behind Scorpio Film Releasing, his...

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...
