Random Acts of Violence

Apropos, as this flick is Canadian, Random Acts of Violence reminds the authors of the quote, “I went to a boxing match and a hockey game broke out,” although in this case, it’s “I went to a horror film and a lecture about violence broke out.” Nobody goes to a horror film to learn anything ..read more

Vacancy

by Really Awful Movies
1M ago
Vacancy takes its place in a very long line of motel/accommodation-related horror, obviously harkening to Psycho, but also recently through the likes of Airbnb terrors like 13 Cameras and The Rental with the connective tissue going back to golden era horrors like Mountaintop Motel Massacre and Tourist Trap. And it doesn’t exactly ring that bell ..read more

Cemetery of Terror

3M ago
Can you be all things to all people? Apparently so, if the curious Mexican horror, Cemetery of Terror is any indication, a grab bag of every possible genre often haphazardly tossed together. What begins as a standard Night of the Creeps/Hell Night style film built around the usual bunch of collegiate types with designs on ..read more

Hellbender

10M ago
Hellbender is another indie horror darling which is amassing lots of critical goodwill but not that much love from the people who matter most, ultimately, the audience. It follows, well…It Follows as another low-budget production that needs a Kleenex to dab all that spittle off critics’ yobs. But that least with that one, there was ..read more

Texas Chainsaw Massacre

Texas Chainsaw Massacre has so much spoon feeding, you’d think you were at a long-term care home. And that makes sense, as at this point, if this is a direct sequel to the events of the 1974 movie, Leatherface would be clad in adult diapers. Hey, Netflix idiots, YOU retconned the interceding films. I’m just ..read more

Malatesta’s Carnival of Blood
Really Awful Movies
by Really Awful Movies
1y ago
Art house, meets funhouse? Malatesta’s Carnival of Blood is a no-budget 70s exploitation film with Gothic and other aspirations, which, even if frequently unmet are nonetheless well worthy of your time. The brainchild of director Christopher Speeth, for whom this is a singular achievement – literally, as he never made another film – this one ..read more

Wendigo

If you can’t get your myths right, sometimes you get lucky and create your own. That’s the case with Wendigo, which mispresents the Indigenous mythical creature as a beast with antlers, a monster motif that’s since increasingly revealed itself as a creature resembling the Jägermeister logo in countless films, recently, The Ritual. The Wendigo is ..read more

Antidote

In Woody Allen’s Sleeper, a guy goes in for routine surgery that turns out to be anything but. Uh oh. That, at least, was played for kicks as the protagonist wakes up in a future with oversized vegetables and an Orgasmatron machine to get your rocks off (or heck, maybe there’s overlap between the two ..read more

Knife in Ice
Really Awful Movies

1y ago
Having a character be mute is a clever, albeit annoying way to propel a narrative. In the horror genre, it’s a conceit that’s typically a response to trauma, as in Halloween 5: The Revenge of Michael Myers, or in Umberto Lenzi’s giallo Knife in Ice, whose lead witnessed her parents’ death in a train crash ..read more
