    Hospital Massacre

    ★★

    A *super* weird slasher from Cannon Films!

    It’s like a movie written by an extraterrestrial being that had only been told briefly about slasher movies and hospitals, or maybe a computer that had "American horror movie, hospital, weird stuff" entered into it for reference.

    No one does a single believable thing. It’s really astonishing.

    It’s undeniably terrible, and definitely makes no sense at all, but it’s also competently photographed, the acting is...interesting (Playmate Barbi Benton is actually pretty convincing, despite…

    "Safe? My foot." *sips digestif*

    This is a made-for-TV horror anthology from Canada. It’s more weird tongue-in-cheek thriller than horror.

I'm extremely surprised this didn't get more attention, especially considering its social and political relevance. But then, it doesn't fall in line with and hammer…

    Poultrygeist: Night of the Chicken Dead

    ★★★½

    Poultrygeist: Night of the Chicken Dead is a nasty, nauseatingly hilarious, gleefully idiotic, sometimes boring, often offensive, occasionally thrilling, frequently ghastly, and - in the end - wonderfully hideous Troma experience.

    It’s also a terrible musical! And who the hell doesn’t love a terrible musical?!

    I enjoyed this for the most part, the experience one that seems to induce a sort of schizophrenic reaction as it bounces around from mostly-impressive blood & gore sight gags to boobs, mostly unfunny/offensive racial jokes (and…
