    HoopTober5.0 - Movie #22 - Two Evil Eyes

    This is a competent, but somewhat lacking anthology film from two of the best directors in horror history.

    George Romero's story is far too basic for someone of his abilities. It has a timid, almost soap opera quality about it. It just seems way too tame from the man who made the Dead movies. It ramps up a little near the end but it still just feels like an afterthought. Tossing in…

    HoopTober5.0 - Movie #10 - Diary Of The Dead

    After watching Land of the Dead for last years HoopTober, I wrote in my review that I will probably never bother getting around to Diary. Well about that...

    Diary shares many of the same problems that I had with Romero's previous effort. I felt that any hint of subtlety the movie tries to carry is lost. Both movies slam the same message in our face. Are we worth saving? It comes…
