A zomcom vs. a zomdram that doesn’t stand a chance

The headline says it all, so let’s get right to my completely biased opinion about this pair of recent zombie films. DEAD SHACK (2017) Dead Shack is my kind of zombedy. The plot is simple, there are minimal characters, it’s … Continue reading

Talk to the hand…and beg it not to kill you!

I love giving a good hand blog, so I wrap my fist around three spanning two decades in this one. THE HAND (1981) Hard to believe Oliver Stone directed this rather forgettable 1981 horror flick that feels more like a … Continue reading

A triple dose of 80s schlock treatment…
