The Horde (2009)

The Horde (2009) — I really can’t say why I didn’t connect with this movie, but I just didn’t. It has most of what I love in zombie movies. There are definitely a handful of truly awesome moments. The story’s good. The blood keeps flowing. Maybe it’s because the characters aren’t very well-developed so I … Continue reading

The Video Dead (1987)

The Video Dead (1987) — Even by the low, low standards of direct-to-video blood-and-guts horror movies of the 1980s, this movie is a great big steaming pile of dog shit. Okay, now if I point out of everything that’s wrong with this movie like the shitty acting and the almost nonexistent production values you might … Continue reading

City of the Living Dead (1980)

City of the Living Dead (1980) — If you are the type who pukes your guts out seeing gore in movies you might want to steer clear of this one in which someone literally does puke their guts out. But what else would anyone expect from Lucio Fulci, the Italian horror maestro who made Zombi … Continue reading

Dead Snow (2009)

Dead Snow (2009) — This movie is about Nazi zombies.  That really tells you all you need to know about whether or not you’re going to like it.  The characters are not developed at all and the first 45 minutes or so really drag but it has Nazi zombies.  There are some clever gore moments … Continue reading

Planet Terror (2007)

Planet Terror (2007) — I fucking love this movie because it just goes for broke on awesomeness.  It may not actually scare anyone (although it has a spider and spiders freak me right the fuck out) but it does entertain from beginning to end.  I still lament that the full theatrical Grindhouse experience is not … Continue reading

Slither (2006)

Slither (2006) — Definitely the better film in my Halloween Alien-Slugs-Make-People-Into-Zombies Double Feature.  This movie rocks.  Half gross-out horror flick and half comedy, this movie plays to my sick sense of humor.  The fact that the leads are Nathan Fillion and Elizabeth Banks should clue you in right away that this movie isn’t playing it … Continue reading

Night of the Creeps (1986)

Night of the Creeps (1986) — Campy fun, but not the classic I had been led to believe it was.  There are zero scares in the entire movie but it manages to be enjoyable anyway due to a very dated 80s sense of humor.  Ah, the 80s.  This was part one of my Halloween Alien-Slugs-Make-People-Into-Zombies … Continue reading

Zombieland (2009)

Zombieland (2009) — SECOND REVIEW [Blu-Ray]: This movie is pretty much tailor-made for me.  As many times as I’ve seen a nun crushing a zombie with a falling piano (in addition to the two times I’ve seen the movie it was in every single ad) I have never failed to laugh out loud.  Because that’s … Continue reading
