Campfire Tales (1997)

After four teenage friends crash their car, they discover a deserted church nearby and decide to wait there for help. To pass the time, they recount well-known urban legends with twists.

Please please please, do not confuse this movie with the shitty movie called Campfire Stories. That ones a piece of crap, while this one is really good. (I haven’t seen the “Campfire Tales” film with Gunner Hansen so I can’t tell you about that one.) But this one has been a favorite of mine since I first saw it. In fact, I have GOT to get my niece (16yrs old) and nephew (13yrs old) to watch this next week. I’m sure I could spook them silly with it, as I did with their sister... Continue reading

The World’s Creepiest Places by Bob Curran (Book Review)

There are some places in the world where humans quite simply should not go. Not just haunted places, but sites where ancient forces still hold sway. We can recognize such locations by the responses they evoke within us—that feeling we call "the creeps." Visit spooky locations from Ireland through the empty deserts of the Middle East, to the misty hills of Tibet and back through Europe to America.

I love books like this, or rather I want to love books like this. I always loved watching and reading stories about hauntings and other strange activity... Continue reading

Creepshow 2 (1987)

In an homage to the works of EC Comics the rotting but amiable Creep introduces this anthology of three gruesome tales written by the master of horror, Stephen King. In the first story, a wooden statue of a Native American comes to life...to exact vengeance on the murderer of his elderly owners. In the second, four teens are stranded on a raft on a lake with a blob that is hungry. And in the third, a hit and run woman is terrorized by the hitchhiker she accidentally killed...

I rented this movie a LOT as a teenager, I loved it. For some reason I didn’t see the first one until I was in my mid to late 20’s, and I wasn’t a huge fan of it... Continue reading

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

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

As the stories unfold, an unknown person at the sorority begins committing murder. The three distinct segments involve a homicidal doll, an undead crew directing a fading actress and a gory hunting tale ending in death. Stars include Bridget Marquardt and Holly Madison.
