The House of the Devil (reviewed by Lisa Marie Bowman)

When was the last time you actually saw a good movie on Chiller?  Seriously, it doesn’t happen that often and perhaps that’s why, when  I recently curled up on the couch and watched 2009’s The House of the Devil on Chiller, I wasn’t expecting much.  However, I was pleasantly surprised to discover that The House of the Devil is […]

Sole Survivor (Reviewed by Lisa Marie Bowman)

For my first May review here at Horror Critic, I want to take this oppurtunity to tell you about an ujustly obscure horror film for 1983, Sole Survivor. I found this film on DVD at Half-Price Books where it was being sold for a dollar in the clearance section.  If not for the fact that I […]

The Wicker Tree (Reviewed by Lisa Marie Bowman)

Most of the time, I use my role as an online film blogger to try to tell people about great films that they may have not heard of or that they may have missed previously.  However, occasionally, I come across a film that is so bad and pointless that I just have to take a […]

The Rage: Carrie 2 (Reviewed by Lisa Marie Bowman)

Lately, the 1999 horror sequel The Rage: Carrie 2 has been showing up fairly frequently on Cinemax and I’ve spent many an insomnia-filled night watching a wild-eyed Rachel (Emily Bergl) use her brain to kill every high school football player on the planet.  It seemed like every time I came across Carrie 2, the film was […]

The Children (reviewed by Lisa Marie Bowman)

Let’s just be honest: Children are scary.  Especially when they’re evil killer children with black fingernails who can scald you to death with a hug.  “Oh, Lisa,” you’re saying, “there aren’t any children like that!” Oh really? Obviously, you’ve never seen a low-budget little horror film from 1980 called The Children. The small town of […]

Bunnyman (Reviewed By Lisa Marie Bowman)

It seems like almost every holiday has inspired at least one horror film.  There’s been a host of films about killer Santas, there’s the Halloween films, and who could possibly forget Valentine?  Even Thanksgiving inspired Eli Roth to make a fake trailer for Grindhouse. But what about Easter? Me and my BFF Evelyn were discussing […]

BTK (reviewed by Lisa Marie Bowman)

One of the unfortunate things about being a self-appointed “film critic” is that the majority of the films that have been released over the past century are neither good nor bad.  Instead, they’re simply “bleh.”  Neither good enough to be memorable nor bad enough to be truly entertaining, a Bleh film sits in the gray […]

Two Thousand Maniacs (reviewed by Lisa Marie Bowman)

If there’s anything that I love almost as much as a good horror movie, it’s a good musical.  One of my favorite musicals is Brigadoon.  Brigadoon is about a ghostly Scottish village that only appears for one day every hundred years.  It was made into a film starring Cyd Charisse who is one of my favorite dancers of all time […]

Rats: Night of Terror (Reviewed by Lisa Marie Bowman)

  Can one scene make an otherwise thoroughly useless movie worth seeing? That was the question I was forced to ponder as I wrote this review of 1984‘s Rats: Night of Terror. Rats: Night of Terror opens in the 23rd century.  As the result of a nuclear war, Earth has been transformed into a barbaric wasteland.  While […]

Blue Sunshine (Reviewed by Lisa Marie Bowman)

Occasionally, on twitter, I’ll take part in the Drive-In Mob live tweet session.  Every Thursday night, a group of exploitation, grindhouse, and horror film fans get together and watch the same film and, via twitter, provides their own running commentary track.  It’s always terrific fun and a good opportunity to discover some films that you might […]
