(10)
April 27, 2013

Heavy metal impresario Rob Zombie exploded on the movie scene with his first feature film House of a 1000 Corpses in 2003.

The Echo (2008): Grudge-like Terror

I’ve just fallen in love. Not with someone, but something; the film The Echo. Amazingly it is a re-make (not, if you’ve read many of my posts or seen my YouTube channel something I am too fond of) of a Filipino film titled Sigaw (second side note – which I am currently desperately searching for)… Read More ›

The Pact (2012) It’s Not What It Looks Like

Don’t let the trailers fool you. I was expecting something completely different after being bombarded with misleading trailers; first in the cinema and then on the internet.

Open Graves (2009): Sizzling Dushku

Directed by Álvaro de Armiñán and written by the Father/son duo of Roderick and Bruce A. Taylor Open Graves is like Jumanji on PCP or alternatively for grown-ups. There’s nothing new here on offer.

When this book was originally published it was only 249 pages long and had (presumably) a huge amount cut by the publishing house.

When I was about 12 years old my parents took my brother and me to Six Flags Over Texas. As there is roughly 7 years difference in our ages (he’s younger) he was only about 5 years old at the time. We went through the whole park at least twice. It was a lot smaller… Read More ›
