Cast A Deadly Spell (Reviewed by Lisa Marie Bowman)

Welcome to 1940s Los Angeles! It’s a world that, at first, seems very familiar.  World War II is over and, even as America faces the future with refreshed optimism, the streets of Los Angles remain mean and dangerous.  There are gangsters.  There are rich men plotting to make themselves even richer.  The police are corrupt.  […]

The Watcher (reviewed by Lisa Marie Bowman)

  Released in 2000, The Watcher is one of those movies where a burned out FBI Agent finds himself locked in a game of cat-and-mouse with an overly verbose serial killer.  The FBI agent doesn’t want to get involved and is struggling with a drug addiction.  (It’s always either drugs or a wife who doesn’t […]

Teenagers From Outer Space (reviewed by Lisa Marie Bowman)

The aliens have landed in California! And they’re teenagers! That may sound like the set up of a 1960s beach movie but actually, Teenagers From Outer Space is an oddly somber little movie from 1959.  Now, just to be clear, somber does not necessarily equal good.  There’s a lot of humor to be found in […]

The Guardian (Reviewed by Lisa Marie Bowman)

The Guardian, a horror film from 1990, tells the story of a woman named Camilla (Jenny Seagrove), who is hired as a nanny and proceeds to not only claim the baby as her own but also tries to seduce the baby’s father away from his wife. Or maybe Camilla is a druid who kidnaps babies […]

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 […]
