    I vividly remember this VHS box from when I was younger and I remember how, for whatever reason, I never rented it. Wishing now I would have; this movie should be a cult classic!

    A bunch of weird/nerdy film students decide to put on an all-nite horror movie show at a rundown local theater (complete with a "fixin-it up" montage) which then invites the presence of a faceless psycho killer who then starts knocking off our students one by one.…

    Nothing overly special and certainly goofy and cheesy and funny in places, but it's got some things going for it other films don't have.

    The make-up effects are pretty tremendous and I really enjoyed all of the B-movie recreations the kids did for the festival. Fun watch in a group setting.

    A fun examination of horror and why we like to see murder and mayhem... as long as it's fake. Movies within movies, secret identities, strange dreams. This movie's got it all, and holds a mirror up to it all.

    I've been to horror festivals and I can tell you that it's very rare for a crazed, revenge-minded, burned-up psycho killer to show up and start making barbecue out of people in the theater. About the worst drama you can expect from these things is a guy knocking over your popcorn when he gets up and scoots his way down the row for a bathroom break—and what the hell kind of movie would THAT make? The makers of Popcorn wisely…

    Dismember The Alamo 2 (2015) first feature. Very fun, well-made and even though 1991, feels like a perfect 80s love letter to old school movie houses. Great stuff.

    This gets off to a terrrrrrrible start where my girlfriend Jill Schoelen is having nightmares about Manos and joins the community theater version of the kids from Texas Chainsaw Massacre, who all take turns competing over who can be the most annoying person on the planet (turns out, all of them).

    Then thankfully once the plot revs up it goes into overdrive and finally figures out how to be a really fun tribute to the schlocky…

    I didn't know much about Popcorn prior to it beginning. I had vague memories of a podcast mentioning it briefly in a positive way, so when I had the chance to see it, I did so.
    I'm of two minds with Popcorn. The inner child in me wishes I had seen it back in the early 90s. I have a feeling I would have had a close relationship with this movie back then.
    My impression of it as an adult…

    Popcorn is from director Mark Herrier. It's a metaphysical horror film about a group of students who decide to host a horror film marathon, only to discover they are living in a horror film of their own.

    I didn't know what to expect from Popcorn. But I was pretty impressed overall. The production value is shoddy, but the script is very tight for the most part and elevates the stale direction and performances, except for…

    Hoop-Tober 2.0 #23

    Already late to the slasher game in 1991, Popcorn tries to stand out from the already long-over-saturated slasher sub-genre by emulating campy '50s monster movies, as well as the modern slashers we all know and (sometimes) love. And does it work? While Popcorn may not feel particularly fresh, it does have a unique air to it, a sense of fun borne of the fake '50s sci-fi-horror films shown intermittently throughout (the film is set at an all-night…
