30 Days of Night – Halloween Horror Month Movie Spectacular 2014 Day 15

I never really hear anyone mention this movie so I didn’t have terribly high expectations for it. Luckily it turns out it’s pretty good. Not a timeless classic certainly, but more than good enough to keep you entertained for a … Continue reading

The Lost Boys – Halloween Horror Month Movie Spectacular 2014 Day 14

I didn’t watch The Lost Boys until a few years ago, which means it invokes no sense of nostalgia in me beyond the hairstyles and clothes of the characters. I suspect that I would like this movie a whole lot … Continue reading

Hellraiser II: Hellbound – Halloween Horror Month Movie Spectacular 2014 Day 13

Not for the squeamish. I’m not sure if much else needs to be said about Hellraiser II. It picks up hours after the end of the first movie with a highlight reel of its more gruesome parts. The daughter who survived … Continue reading

Necronomicon – Halloween Horror Month Movie Spectacular 2014 Day 12

It’s difficult to articulate an opinion about Necronomicon. Like a thing out of the Lovecraft stories that it is based on the movie seems unknowable and unnamable. It’s not good, but it’s not exactly bad Esther. It’s an anthology of … Continue reading

The Whisperer in Darkness – Halloween Horror Month Movie Spectacular 2014 Day 11

The Whisperer in Darkness is by far the best movie I’ve seen this month. It is an adaptation of the Lovecraft story by the H. P. Lovecraft Historical Society (who also did the amazing Call of Cthulhu). Call of Cthulhu was … Continue reading

After quite enjoying the first movie, I was curious to watch this sequel. I was immediately hooked as it started with Cristopher Lee reading form the Book of Revelation. Unfortunately, that turned out to be the highlight of the entire … Continue reading

The Toxic Avenger – Halloween Horror Month Movie Spectacular 2014 Day 8

I first learned of The Toxic Avenger through toy ads in the early nineties for figures which seemed to be ugly rip-offs of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles (or Teenage Mutant Hero Turtles as they were known here). I also … Continue reading

Mimic – Halloween Horror Month Movie Spectacular 2014 Day 6

Mimic is a mankind tampers with nature and has to deal with the consequences kind of horror story. While I don’t really appreciate that sentiment (go science!), it can make for pretty good stories. As it does in this case. … Continue reading

Without Warning – Halloween Horror Month Movie Spectacular 2014 Day 2

While still remaining firmly in B movie territory, Without Warning is a definite step up from yesterday’s Sharknado. I hadn’t heard of it until I saw it described as something of a precursor to Predator. I can see the comparison, … Continue reading

Sharknado – Halloween Horror Month Movie Spectacular 2014 Day 1

And so here we are. Plunging headlong into another month of horror movies. They say you should begin as you mean to go on. Except that there are quite a few other B-movies coming up, I don’t mean to keep going … Continue reading
