  • Alone in the Dark

    Alone in the Dark

    ★★★★½

    From the bonkers Donald Pleasance diner intro scene to the unhinged look of insanity on the face of Jack Palance in that final shot, Alone in the Dark delivers… mixing things up with the usual escaped maniac swill but making it multiple maniacs and throwing in some family siege narrative/home invasion spices into the slasher stew. 

    I first saw Alone in the Dark sometime in the mid 90’s after seeing genre must watches like The Prowler, The Burning, My Bloody Valentine, and…

  • The Texas Chain Saw Massacre

    The Texas Chain Saw Massacre

    ★★★★★

    A trip to no-hopesville—a spiral into unhinged southern gothic terror.

    A beautifully shot slice of sun-choked Texas sizzle that’s 110% certified grade-A impenetrable to critique, and one of the most important films ever made—horror in its purist form. The kind of raw sweat-drenched monolithic genre art that extinguishes a symbolic flame of hope inside of you, leaving but an empty husk of a viewer... forever changed.

    The ultimate horror film.

    Girls Nite Out

    ★★

    Girls Nite Out is a lower tier, lesser seen early 80’s slasher from the golden age with some small town hi-jinx for the first hour or so and a solid finale that almost makes it all worthwhile. 

    This is one of those fallen into obscurity slashers that arrow video likes to rescue… stuff like Blood Rage and The Mutilator, but for me this sadly isn’t one of those gems… I was stoked to revisit this and hoping the arrow treatment would add…

    Alexander The Great

    ★★

    Having William Shatner and Adam West (also Joseph Cotton and John Cassevetes!) in an Alexander the Great adaptation in the 1960’s from the director of the great Joe Don Baker juggernaut Walking Tall should’ve been awesome but alas… this was middling toilet slop.

    What a Bummer.

    Malignant

    ★★★★★

    Malignant feels like an unhinged James Wan directing a Corman produced Sam Raimi supernatural giallo-esque grindhouse joint written by Frank Henenlotter.

    This is James Wan’s Ghosthouse, an everything to 11 pulpy trash kitchen sink movie that doubles down on the gore while still pulling off those slow zoom tense set-pieces he’s become known for. It looks gorgeous, I loved the score, and it uniquely meshes genres while upping the frantic nature of big budget late summer horror with Wan’s usual…
