Evil Dead 2 Review

Still trapped in the same cabin from part one, Ash, the sole survivor from last time out, still finds himself battling the undead. To keep things interesting a few interlopers and visitors pop up here and there, but mostly, this is Ashley’s inner-badass coming out party bay-bay. Evil Dead 2 is the film most people… Continue reading Evil Dead 2 Review

The Evil Dead Review

As we get nearer to Halloween, I was struggling to think of more horror titles to fit in with the QDR series when the ‘Evil Dead’ franchise popped in my head. This works as a double tie-in with the Halloween season, plus the new TV series starting this fall starring none other than Mr. Bruce… Continue reading The Evil Dead Review

The Little Shop of Horrors Review

I’m a sucker for old Roger Corman flicks and other such “D-Movie” shenanigans, but this movie was just a really lazy and rushed affair. I’m not one to normally harp on the superiority of remakes, but the 1986 musical version of this story is superior in just about every way. I found this flick as… Continue reading The Little Shop of Horrors Review

Halloween: Resurrection Review

This is without a doubt the laziest of all the Halloween movies. Even part three, as misguided as it was, at least tried to be creative. Halloween: Resurrection can’t be bothered with the formalities of either the franchise it represents or decent storytelling in general. For the past half dozen or so flicks, Michael Myers… Continue reading Halloween: Resurrection Review

Halloween H20 Review

With a title like ‘Halloween H20’ featuring a mass murderer stalking a college campus I wish I could say this movie was about Michael Myers stalking the campus of South Central Louisiana State University doing battle with Bobby Boucher (Adam Sandler) with Bobby’s mom (Kathy Bates) taking over the Donald Pleasance role of reminding us… Continue reading Halloween H20 Review

Halloween 6: The Curse of Michael Myers Review

I am reviewing the director’s cut here, which is the first time I have seen it---I would like to go back and see the original theatrical now for comparison’s sake, but I’ll save that for a later review. This is the first Halloween movie I was old enough to see as a kid, and being… Continue reading Halloween 6: The Curse of Michael Myers Review

Halloween 5: The Revenge of Michael Myers Review

The Halloween franchise, compared to Freddy and Jason’s series, is probably the most uneven of all the slasher series. Nothing will ever top the awful unconnected mess of Halloween III, which is why part four was such a welcome return to form, but this entry, while still at least a somewhat competent entry in the… Continue reading Halloween 5: The Revenge of Michael Myers Review

Halloween 4: The Return of Michael Myers Review

Halloween 4 is the movie that brought the Halloween franchise into the same slasher-fest league as the movies that had imitated it. Whether or not that’s a good thing depends on how big a fan you are of these kinds of flicks. John Carpenter had big Twilight Zone like ideas for the series, of which… Continue reading Halloween 4: The Return of Michael Myers Review

Halloween 3: Season of the Witch Review

Only John Carpenter knows what he was thinking when he agreed to let Tommy Lee Wallace helm this strange non-sequel (which he both wrote and directed) which is the third entry into his iconic Halloween series. The plot, in as much of a nutshell as I can come up with is this: Michael Myers was… Continue reading Halloween 3: Season of the Witch Review
