Werewolf flix that make me howl with laughter in between screams

I’ll never forget back in 1981 when An American Werewolf in London and The Howling changed the werewolf genre forever, from the transformation effects of both to the comedy of An American Werewolf in London and the bipedal wolves of … Continue reading

Johnny Gruesome is the face of evil in the basement

I finally took a moment to watch some up and coming movies (they might be out by now for all I know), so the only common theme between these three is that they are recent releases. We have a torture … Continue reading

STREAM QUEEN: 6 degrees of Bill Oberst Jr.

Slashing and spoofing and clowning around

This was originally just going to be a slasher spoof double feature about two films that came two decades apart, but I had to throw in one oddity that fell around the middle somewhere.  STUDENT BODIES (1981) One of the … Continue reading
