The Flesh and Blood Show (Reviewed by Lisa Marie Bowman)

I had a few reasons for watching the 1972 slasher film, The Flesh and Blood Show. First off, the film was directed by Pete Walker.  Though Pete Walker may not be as well-known as some of his contemporaries and his overall cinematic output is dreadfully uneven, he was still responsible for enough memorable films that […]

Little Shop of Horrors (reviewed by Lisa Marie Bowman)

Enter singing. Little Shop…Little Shop of Horrors…Little Shop…Little Shop of Terrors… When I was 19 years old, I was in a community theater production of the musical Little Shop of Horrors.  Though I think I would have made the perfect Audrey, everybody always snickered whenever I sang so I ended up as a part of […]

Castle Freak (Reviewed by Lisa Marie Bowman)

Originally released in 1996, Castle Freak is a film that I watched a few years ago and seriously, it totally freaked me out!  Seriously, this is one truly creepy, scary, and disturbing film.  I imagine that I’m not alone in having nightmares after watching Castle Freak. Castle Freak takes place in Italy and yes, the main […]

Sleepwalkers (Reviewed by Lisa Marie Bowman)

So, last night, I was looking for something to watch and I came across Sleepwalkers, a horror film from 1992.  And you know what?  I could sit here and I could get all snarky about Sleepwalkers and I could be hypercritical and all that other stuff.  It’s tempting because the film was written by Stephen King […]

Kruel (reviewed by Lisa Marie Bowman)

The 2016 film Kruel (which is also available under the slightly altered name of Cruel) is a dark little horror thriller.  It is memorable for featuring the world’s creepiest ice cream man.  (That’s him in the picture above.) Now, when I say that Kruel was a dark film, I don’t just mean that it was thematically disturbing, though it […]

The Brain From Planet Arous (reviewed by Lisa Marie Bowman)

Are you feeling sad?  Does the world seem to be oppressive and overwhelming?  Do you just need a break from all of the nonstop drama that seems to be the price that we pay for every day of our existence? If you answered yes, all I can say is that I know where you’re coming […]

Blood Cult (Reviewed By Lisa Marie Bowman)

Oh no!  There are bad things happening!  On a small college campus, co-eds are being stalked and killed by a masked murderer who carries a cleaver.  With each murder, the killer chops off a limb and carries it off with him.  He also leaves behind a mysterious gold medallion, one that appears to feature an […]

Savage Weekend (reviewed by Lisa Marie Bowman)

Filmed in 1976 but not released until 1979, Savage Weekend is the story of a brave boom mic that takes a trip to upstate New York for the weekend and ends up witnessing a lot of decadent behavior and, eventually, a few gruesome murders.  Sadly, the brave little boom mic apparently has no social skills […]

The Ring (reviewed by Lisa Marie Bowman)

(SPOILERS BELOW!) This weekend, I will be seeing Rings, the second sequel to the 2002 film, The Ring.  (Of course, The Ring itself is a remake of the Japanese film, Ringu.)  Since it’s been a while since we’ve had a new installment in the Ring franchise, I decided to rewatch the first film tonight. I […]

The Presence (Reviewed by Lisa Marie Bowman)

The Presence opens with nearly 20 minutes of near-silence.  We watch as an unnamed and emotionally unstable woman (Mira Sorvino, who is literally listed in the credits as having played The Woman) arrives at an isolated cabin.  As she settles in for what is obviously a very needed vacation, she goes about her business without saying […]
