Nightmares in a Damaged Brain (reviewed by Lisa Marie Bowman)

I have often read about a low-budget horror film that was released in the mid-70s.  The film was advertised as being “a film that could only have been made in South America … where life is cheap!”  The title of that film was Snuff and I’ve never seen it (nor do I have much desire […]

The Last Resort (reviewed by Lisa Marie Bowman)

The Last Resort is a low-budget horror film from 2009 that tends to show up on Chiller a lot.  It’s a low-budget film about annoying people who, largely as the result of their own stupidity, get trapped in a really bad situation.  It’s a movie that many people dismiss but I’ve always found it to […]

The Nun (Reviewed by Lisa Marie Bowman)

When talking about the 2005 Spanish horror film The Nun, it’s best to admit one thing from the start.  This film has got an absolutely terrible ending. It seems to be the unwritten rule of modern horror that every movie has to have a “shocking” twist that’s revealed during the film’s final 10 minutes.  Occasionally, […]

The Devil Inside (Reviewed by Lisa Marie Bowman)

As a film reviewer, I usually try to introduce my readers to good films that they might otherwise miss.  However, sometimes, you see a film that’s so bad, bland, and/or boring that you simply have to speak up to prevent anyone else from wasting their time watching it. The Devil Inside is one such film. […]

The Black Cat (Reviewed by Lisa Marie Bowman)

For my first horror review of October, I want to tell you about a movie that was directed by one of my favorite Italian filmmakers, Lucio Fulci.  That movie is the unjustly neglected Gato nero, or the Black Cat. In The Black Cat (loosely — and I do mean loosely — based on Edgar Allan Poe’s short story), the great […]

Dracula A.D. 1972 (Reviewed by Lisa Marie Bowman)

I don’t know about you but I love the old school Hammer horror films from the 60s and 70s.  These are the films where iconic actors like Christopher Lee and Peter Cushing played characters like Dracula and Baron Von Frankenstein.  At the time they were released, they were considered to be quite risque but, seen […]

Alone With Her (Reviewed by Lisa Marie Bowman)

I recently watched the 2007 horror film Alone With Her and I have to say that I’m surprised that this film isn’t better known.  It’s probably one of the better horror films that I’ve seen recently.  I say this despite the fact that it’s a “found footage” horror film, that is the entire film is […]

The Hearse (Review by Lisa Marie Bowman)

I feel no shame in admitting that I love horror movies.  I don’t think that’s any secret to anyone who has ever read my reviews on this site or over at Through The Shattered Lens.  When I’m feeling so restless that I can’t sit still or focus, all you have to do is give me a horror […]

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 […]
