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 […]

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 […]
