Scouts Guide to the Zombie Apocalypse (2015)

Roger Braden suggested today's movie and I would have never watched it otherwise. I'm glad he brought it to my attention. Check out his Facebook group Valley Nightmares, which is all about the history of the films that played at the drive-ins and theaters in his home state of Kentucky. He also writes from Drive-In… Continue reading Scouts Guide to the Zombie Apocalypse (2015)

TABLOID WEEK: The Secret Life of Marilyn Monroe (2015)

Based on The New York Times bestseller of the same name by J. Randy Taraborrelli, this movie proves that sometimes, Lifetime will actually put money into their movies. Or mini-series. You know what I mean. This is about as A-list as this channel is ever going to get, but of course, it's not to be… Continue reading TABLOID WEEK: The Secret Life of Marilyn Monroe (2015)

BASTARD PUPS OF JAWS: Avalanche Sharks (2015)

I've been in shark crazed waters for awhile, so sometimes it's good when someone offers you a life preserver.

Day 22 of the Scarecrow Psychotronic Challenge is 22. Separation. Alienation. Aloneness. If you scream alone in the woods and no one is around to hear it, are you really screaming?

It all… Continue reading 2018 Scarecrow Psychotronic Challenge Day 22: The Witch

BIGFOOT WEEK: Bigfoot: The Movie (2015)

A lot of this review won't make sense if you aren't from Western Pennsylvania. Becca was born near Detroit, so she doesn't always get a lot of Pittsburgh. There's the yinzer accent. The strange customs. And when we were in line at Kennywood to ride the Thunderbolt the other night, she didn't get the palpable… Continue reading BIGFOOT WEEK: Bigfoot: The Movie (2015)

CHRISTMAS CINEMA: A Christmas Horror Story (2015)

We love portmanteau movies. Tales from the Crypt, Asylum, Tales that Witness Madness, really anything that Amicus ever did? Yep. However, modern versions tend to be seriously lacking, substituting gore and shock for storytelling and proper use of the form. LIke A Christmas Horror Story. It skirts the very thing that makes the anthology film tick -- it has… Continue reading CHRISTMAS CINEMA: A Christmas Horror Story (2015)
