The modern movie audience is used to team-up flicks every few years with Marvel pushing out flicks like a litter of kittens. In the 80s that kind of thing, well it wasn't a thing. Then came along Eliminators. Imagine every action flick stereotype teaming up. An R2D2 knock-off, the brainy scientist who is also the hot girl who would later be better known as Tasha Yar, Terminator with tank treads, Han Solo but a boat driver (he ain't a captain,…

this movie doesn’t just kick ass, it also has a incredibly genuine and emotional core for a slasher this brutal, especially one that’s under the Puppet Master franchise. every character is written with so much care and humanity that even the worst of them become likable. theres a lot about this movie that stuck out to me as borderlining profound, but i was drunk off my ass so i definitely need to revisit sober to really sink my teeth into the…
Hellboy is directed by Neil Marshall and stars David Harbour, Milla Jovovich, Ian McShane, Daniel Dae Kim, and Sasha Lane.
Hellboy must defeat Nimue, an evil blood queen who intends to bring the end of the world and to have Hellboy himself be her king.
I was so excited for the Hellboy reboot despite wanting a third movie to conclude the Guillermo del Toro trilogy. I certainly was looking forward to this reboot more than most though. I finally got…
“I’m drawing my own line in the sand!”
And that’s exactly what this film does it stands out amongst the other Hellboy movies and makes its own path that is far more driven by the graphic novel series then the ones before. This film takes scenes straight from the frames of the Wild Hunt a Hellboy story along with Hellboy in Mexico a Hellboy short story and more, crafting a predictable but highly enjoyable film. He’s told to be the…
Unfortunately more people want to respect the other movies than they want to enjoy more Hellboy. Most bad reviews are so obsessed with Guillermo del toro they haven't set the table to enjoy this movie. I've been a fan of Hellboy and the BPRD for decades now and any excuse to see more Lobster Johnson, Baba Yaga, Benjamin Daimo, and the rest of the gang is fine with me. This movie had Giants, demons, cat people, zombies, vampires, and a…
Mozart, Allen, and the villain are so fucking great. Like god damn that villain is so evil I love it.
Great direction and no studio interference whatsoever.
Craven’s vision of this voodoo horror film is magnificent.
Not too many great voodoo films, but this one is definitely one of the few!
As I started typing this my brother informed me that they deleted Salem’s Lot off of here...
10/10 film, idk why they deleted it, but that movie is orgasmic.
Idk if this made any money but I already know it made none sadly.
Is there a Blu-ray of this?
Like so much of Wes Craven's Eighties output, "The Serpent & the Rainbow" feels at times derailed by what must have been studio-mandated dream sequences following the success of "Elm Street." But for most of its runtime, the film is a compelling docu-drama about a subject made all the more terrifying because, well, it's real. Visually stunning and as sweat-inducing as a fever, I dare say it's nearly a masterwork.
So an anthropologist dude, played by Bill Pullman, rocks up in Haiti to lurk about in an attempt to find out what the fuck is up with those zombie rumours. In the process he finds himself immersed in unfamiliar cultural beliefs, in over his head when it comes to local politics, and hot to trot for a whipsmart and wisened Haitian beauty, played by Cathy Tyson.
-- the Haitian setting, with the voodoo and all that may seem like a…
The late horror master Wes Craven's most underrated film, The Serpent and The Rainbow is a slow-burn dive into Haitian voodoo culture set during a time of great political turmoil in the region. I always love when films can blend real world conflicts with supernatural or fantastical themes (ex. Pan's Labyrinth) and The Serpent and The Rainbow does it beautifully. It's really and truly a shame that it isn't as popular and acclaimed as some of Craven's other works, because…
Man. I can’t exactly put my finger on just why it is, but I loved the hell out of this movie. Bill Pullman goes on a fun filled romp through Haiti after being sent there by a greedy American pharmaceutical company to locate a magical powder that turns people into zombies. Along the way, he gets tangled up with a police chief that also happens to be a super powerful voodoo priest, participates in a love scene that has the…
For those of you familiar with the comics of Frank Miller, this portrait of dystopia America is as close as we've gotten to the Martha Washington vision.
Gibraltar Entertainment means that this post-apocalyptic United States is actually South Africa & Namibia. Having broken in with the company's Headhunter, Francis Schaeffer is once again in the directors chair. A repentant figure in the rise of the Christian Right, Schaeffer has brought his baggage to Africa, but the religious chip on his shoulder…
