Chillerama (2011)

The screams -- and laughs -- come fast and furious in this anthology of four tongue-in-cheek horror tales, each from a different writer/director. The baddies range from a gang of gay "werebears" and a monster sperm to Nazi madmen and zombies.

I went into this movie not knowing a thing about it other then Adam Green had something to do with it. I love his films Hatchet & Frozen, and that’s why I requested this to review on BluRay... Continue reading

Day of the Dead (2008)

The town of Leadville, Colorado is plagued by a mysterious flu. Soon the towns people are turning into ultra fast flesh eating zombies.

Corporal Sarah Bowman, and a small group of people attempt to survive and head out of town. This is a remake of George A. Romero’s Day of the Dead.

I have NOT seen the original film, and at this point in time I don’t plan to. I’m a fan of the original Night of the Living Dead, and I enjoyed the remake a lot. I saw the original Dawn of the Dead years ago and thought it was horrible. I truly believe its one of those movies a lot of people like because everyone else does... Continue reading

Dead and Breakfast (2004)

But the tables (and suspicions) turn when the townspeople become possessed by an evil spirit and besiege the young people in the B&B.

Another Netflix streaming film I avoided due to the bad rating. I actually avoided this for six months! Today I watched part of the trailer and realized SO many people were in this I just had to watch it. I’m just glad that I knew going into it that it wasn’t a serious movie, that it was more of a dark comedy with zombies. In fact, there is even a singing zombie… Continue reading

Dead Man Walking by Marty Shaw (Book Review)

Griffin knew watching an inmate being put to death wouldn't be fun, but he never expected Callahan to return as something less than human. Now Griffin, along with a handful of officers and inmates, are trapped within the walls of a prison as a legion of the walking dead stalk them for food. The choice is simple - fight back or die.

Seeing how this is a short story, there isn’t all that much to write about in response to how I liked the story other then saying I loved it... Continue reading

Helter Skelter by Bryan Cassiday (Book Review)

[rating:2/5] Evildoers run riot across the sun-drenched Southern California landscape in Helter Skelter. Zombies, vampires, and other wicked creatures wreak mayhem and carnage in these shocking horror short stories by Bryan Cassiday. Not all of these tales feature supernatural creatures. Some of the evil creatures are human--perhaps the most terrifying creature of all. These stories defy logic, yet they obey their own inexorable logic of fear. Continue reading

When they accept an invitation to an exclusive party at a remote farm, seven strangers who love scary movies find themselves unwilling participants in a nightmarish role-playing game that pays homage to a classic horror film.

ere’s one that was mailed to me that I’d never heard about before. I had no idea what “Mimesis” even meant until later when its defined within the movie. It basically means to imitate. Which exactly what this movie does... Continue reading

Growing up I recall my older sisters watching this and me catching glimpses of it and being scared out of my mind. Netflix had it streaming for the last two months and I just never got around to watching it. I was too worried that it was going to suck so I just kept putting it off... Continue reading

As they get further from home, Shan becomes more and more concerned that Mr. Parker has gone from amusingly eccentric to crazy...

When I originally purchased this (for free) I was under the impression that it was horror. I read a couple reviews after I purchased it that cleared up the fact that no, it was not really horror... Continue reading
