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 […]

The Devil’s Mercy

This movie from 2008 was nominated for a Young Artist Award [Category: Best Performance in a Feature Film – Supporting Young Actor] for Dylan Everett’s role as a 6 year old boy living in a new apartment with his parents. This movie is a Horror Movie B film, but was executed very well. Admittedly one […]

Tucker and Dale VS. Evil

This film from 2010 mixes horror and comedy in a delightful way reminiscent of Sean of The Dead. This film takes common teen actors and teen slasher film actors like Jesse Moss [Dear Mr. Gacy, The Uninvited, Final Destination 3] and Katrina Bowden [30 Rock (TV), Piranha 3DD, The Shortcut] and pairs them with Tyler […]

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 […]

Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn Part 1 (Reviewed By: NikAngel)

  Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn Part 1 (2011) Before I review this film, I must recommend that to completely enjoy this series, the viewer should approach each installment with the mentality of a highly emotional teenager. Preferably, one with wildly magnified mood swings. Then, combine that with the idea that a vampire is a hundred […]

A Blade in the Dark (Reviewed by Lisa Marie Bowman)

If you’re lucky, you remember your first time.  I know I do.  I was 17 years old and I was trying very hard to convince myself that I was an adult.  It had been less than a year since I was first diagnosed as being bipolar and I was still struggling to understand what that […]
