Cathy’s Curse (reviewed by Lisa Marie Bowman)

First released in 1978 and currently available in a few dozen public domain box sets from Mill Creek, Cathy’s Curse is one of those very special films that is so bad that it simply has to be seen for itself.  Cathy’s Curse is a film that is just so relentlessly bad and inept that it […]

“It’s my nature” — Alan Dean (Mark S.

An American Werewolf in London (reviewed by Lisa Marie Bowman)

I resisted seeing An American Werewolf in London for quite some time because 1) I kept mixing the film up with its “sequel,” An American Werewolf in Paris (which is seriously one of the worst films ever made) and 2) werewolves scare me in a way that vampires and zombies don’t.  Seriously, what is a […]

The Black Waters of Echo’s Pond (reviewed by Lisa Marie Bowman)

When The Black Waters of Echo’s Pond was given an extremely limited theatrical release back in 2010, I was one of the few people to actually go to the trouble of saying it at a theater.  Of course, when I was driving to the theater, I nearly had a head-on collision with another car.   As […]

Snowbeast (reviewed by Lisa Marie Bowman)

Now, as you read the title of my latest October review for HorrorCritic.Com, I can guess what you’re thinking.  Why would anyone want to watch, let alone review, a film called Snowbeast? Halloween is the perfect time of year to discover previously obscure horror films from the past.  Let’s be honest — everyone’s seen The […]

Don’t Open ‘Til Christmas (Reviewed by Lisa Marie Bowman)

  What better time to review a Christmas horror film than Halloween, right?  With that in mind, here’s my review of an obscure little grindhouse effort from the early 80s, Don’t Open ‘Til Christmas. As the movie opens, we find ourselves in England with Christmas quickly approaching.  The fog-drenched streets of London have apparently been besieged by […]

Prom Night (reviewed by Lisa Marie Bowman)

The original 1980 Prom Night (not to be confused with the terrible remake that came out a few years ago)  is an old school slasher film, one of the many that came out in the two years immediately after Halloween.  It even stars the star of Halloween, Jamie Lee Curtis.  Prom Night also stars a lot […]

Shock Waves (reviewed by Lisa Marie Bowman)

With today being the first day of October, I found myself thinking about some of my favorite zombie films.  One which came to mind immediately was Ken Wiederhorn’s low-budget but effectively disturbing 1977 film, Shock Waves. In Shock Waves, a group of tourists find themselves shipwrecked off the Florida coast.  As they wander through the isolated, […]

Zombie 5: Killing Birds (Reviewed by Lisa Marie Bowman)

Thanks to the wonderful people at Anchor Bay, I recently watched Zombie 5: Killing Birds, one of the last of the old school Italian horror films. Admittedly, when I first hit play on the DVD player, I was expecting the worst.  Of all the various official and unofficial sequels to Lucio Fulci’s masterpiece Zombi 2 (which, […]

Bates Motel 1.10 “Midnight” (Reviewed by Lisa Marie Bowman)

(Have you seen this episode yet?  If not, you might not want to read this review.  Spoiler warning!) Well, we all knew that was going to happen, didn’t we? To recap: During last night’s episode of Bates Motel , Norman (Freddie Highmore) asked Emma (Oliva Cooke) to attend a school dance with him.  Emma bought […]
