‘Flesh for Frankenstein’ – The Good Doctor Gets Naughty in This Must-See Exploitation Adaptation

Oh boy. This movie. Paul Morrisey’s 1973 feature Flesh for Frankenstein (AKA Andy Warhol’s Frankenstein) is quite the dip into genre absurdity. Initially the film may look like a more sexed up Hammer production, but it quickly establishes itself as something far more perverse and darkly comedic than any of Hammer’s stately, gothic curios. The […]

‘War of the Worlds’ – Spielberg’s Horror Epic Still Packs a Visceral Punch

The Newsweek blurb that has graced every physical release of Stanley Kubrick’s The Shining calls it “The first epic horror film.” That quote has always stuck with me. Horror films are many things, but epic is usually not one of them. Put simply, a cinematic epic is defined by its sense of scope – telling […]

Alien Day: Why ‘Aliens’ is Still the Perfect Horror-Action Hybrid

April 26th means Alien Day. And on this day I would like to challenge the “common wisdom” of James Cameron’s Aliens that has always been a bee in my bonnet. Or should I say an Alien in my ascot? A Facehugger in my frock? I’m not going to sit here and pretend that what is […]

Power of the Night: A ‘Critters’ Franchise Retrospective

The Critters franchise is very close to my heart. Like Gremlins, it is not only one of the first horror movies I remember seeing, but it’s one of the first films I remember seeing in general. During my adolescence I felt like the only person who had seen these films, and because of that they […]

‘Ghoulies III: Ghoulies Go to College’ is a Silly Creature Feature Delight [Hidden Gems]

Ah, Ghoulies – the other, other Gremlins knock-off. This label is something of unfair misnomer, as the first Ghoulies film was in production at the same time as Joe Dante’s classic film. This little franchise that could sit on a porcelain throne of cult appreciation alongside other Tiny Terror pictures like Critters and Troll. The […]

Mystery Meat: 1989’s ‘Parents’ is a Wonderfully Quirky Cannibal Movie [Hidden Gems]

Actor/filmmaker Bob Balaban made his directorial debut with this underseen gem of childhood fear and suburban horror. 1989’s Parents isn’t the first horror film to use the setting of middle class America to study the rot that hides underneath, but it is a particularly eerie and bleakly funny one. The story is simple: little Michael […]

‘Munchies’ Proudly Ripped Off ‘Gremlins’ Back in 1987 [Hidden Gems]

Oh boy. Munchies (1987) is…something. Produced by the beyond prolific and legendary Roger Corman and directed by Tina Hirsch, Munchies is a late 80s rip-off of Gremlins – one of the slew of similar films to follow in the wake of the 1984 Amblin classic. Corman is known for cashing in on any hot film or […]

‘Scream’ – Ghostface Voice Actor Roger L. Jackson Is the Unsung Horror Icon of the Slasher Franchise

You’re home alone. You’re making a snack before you sit down to watch a spooky movie. The phone rings. Odd, who could it be at this hour? You answer. On the other end of the line a friendly, yet provocative voice answers back. He sounds fun – a little sexy even. He asks you: “What’s […]
