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.

Blue Sunshine (Reviewed by Lisa Marie Bowman)

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 […]

Holocaust 2000 (reviewed by Lisa Marie Bowman)

Earlier this morning, while suffering from an annoyingly persistent case of insomnia, I decided to spend 2 hours watching a classic Italian horror film, Alberto De Martino’s oddly effective Omen rip-off, Holocaust 2000. In Holocaust 2000, Kirk Douglas plays a businessman who wants to build a gigantic nuclear power plant in the Middle East.  There are a few problems with […]
