I Was a Witness to the GET OUT “Garden Party Massacre!”

Nestled into the leafy hills of Universal City, CA lies a cul-de-sac called Colonial Street — a set of seemingly innocuous suburban houses which have served, over the years, as the location for shows like LEAVE IT TO BEAVER and DESPERATE HOUSEWIVES. It was against this backdrop that Universal Pictures decided (with no small amount […]

TAMMY AND THE T-REX: The Film That Put Paul Walker’s Brain Inside a Dinosaur

Hidden in the annals of 1990s low-budget genre cinema is a film so spectacularly stupid that it’s hard to believe that it not only exists, but that the actors ever worked again.

Five MYSTERY SCIENCE THEATER 3000 Movies That Deserved Better

Just about every sci-fi/horror nerd is celebrating the return of MYSTERY SCIENCE THEATER 3000 on April 14, 2017, but although this beloved series has earned a loyal fanbase by mocking bad movies, I think it’s worth pointing out right now that not all of the movies it lampooned were technically “bad.” Granted, many of MST3K’s […]

Five SXSW Horror-Thrillers You Have to See (and One You Never Will)

The dignity of film festivals falls by the wayside a few minutes before midnight, when the monsters come out. That’s especially true for the illustrious South By Southwest (SXSW) film festival, with a popular “Midnighters” program that highlights scary movies, violent comedies, and bizarre experiments in audience discomfort. I attended SXSW 2017 last weekend, where […]

The MORTAL KOMBAT Movie Is Nothing To Brag About

If you’re a fan of video games, and you’re a fan of movies, then you’ve probably noticed that every single time Hollywood tries to turn a successful game into a blockbuster motion picture they seem botch the job.
