Blu-ray Review: ‘Two Orphan Vampires’ (1997)

I have to admit – I was a little worried about Two Orphan Vampires. I’d never seen a Jean Rollin film from the 1990s and I imagined something with synthesized saxophone music and lots of softcore lesbian sex. Rollin wears this mantle from cinephiles as the king of lesbian vampire sexploitation, but I’d never really […]

Tales From the Elliptical: Bob Gale Makes Wil Wheaton Eat Poop, Martin Sheen vs. Billy Zane, and More

It takes me just shy of 30 minutes to run 3 miles. It takes just shy of 30 minutes to watch an episode ofTales From The Crypt. Combine the two and you have Tales From the Elliptical, a recurring column at HND where I supplement my love for anthology horror television with my love of not […]

Terror Tuesday Report: The Burning Moon (1997)

Editor’s Note: Usually we like to post Terror Tuesday Reports on the Tuesday following the screening, but the overwhelming and intense insanity of THE BURNING MOON actually put our intrepid writer, Noah, into a blood coma. When he awoke, this post had somehow found its own way onto the site. Enjoy. The Film Terror Tuesday […]

Tales From the Elliptical: Running Through the First Four Seasons of ‘Tales From the Crypt’

I am by no stretch a health nut. I drink way too much and eat too many things that once had faces for that to be the case. I have, however, spent the last few weeks running 3 miles every day on an elliptical. I’m no speed freak, so it takes me about 30 minutes […]

Halloween White Elephant: La Setta (1991)

From Brian Kelley–“Though far from prolific, Michele Soavi is probably my favorite Italian horror film director. This film is considered the 4th in the DEMONS series (Soavi’s THE CHURCH was the 3rd). Neither of Soavi’s entries have any real relation to Lamberto Bava’s originals. While LA SETTA takes a while to get off the ground […]

Halloween White Elephant: Cemetery Man (1994)

From Peter Hall–“Quite simply one of the best horror movies of the ’90s.  Sure, it’s not a straight scary movie, but it has a whimsical sense of the macabre that is impossible to not fall in love with.  Style aside, it’s also just a very unique zombie film that doesn’t treat the undead like an […]

Halloween White Elephant: Carnosaur 3: Primal Species (1996)

From Brian Kelley–“I have been running a horror movie night for almost 10 years now. Back in the mid-2000s I would review each film the day after Horror Movie Night on my MySpace blog. Recently, while going through this blog, I came across a rave review of the b-movie mess CARNOSAUR 3. As such, I […]

Terror Tuesday Report: Maniac Cop 2

The Film I have an unhealthy level of affection for this entire franchise. In one of the few entries of my AYIF series, I revealed my love for the first film in suspiciously overzealous fashion. After seeing the first, I immediately sought out and watched parts 2 and 3 and found them both to be […]

Guest Review: CRIMSON RIVERS and RESURRECTION

The first, and possibly the only, guest review(s) submitted to the site while I am away in Qatar.  Dueling thoughts below from reader Brian on the 1999 flick RESURRECTION and 2000’s CRIMSON RIVERS.  So, enjoy his straight-to-the point thoughts while I’m away. PS.  So far I’ve caught SEVERANCE and FEAST on Arabic TV, maybe the […]

Review: BRAINSCAN

Directed by John Flynn, 1994 Written by Andrew Kevin Walker, story by Brian Owens Some jackass hack named Andrew Kevin Walker has been hounding me in the comment section to review BRAINSCAN, “his 1994 mind-bending masterpiece starring Eddie Furlong”.  I’d never heard of it until old Andy poked his persistent finger in my side again […]

Review: NIGHTSCARES (aka BEYOND BEDLAM)

Directed by Vadim Jean, 1994 Written by Vadim Jean, based on the novel by John Brosnan NIGHTSCARES opens with long pans of the exterior of an apartment building inter-cut with long holds on the faces of people sleeping. This sequence is followed immediately by Craig Fairbrass as the worst cop ever (which makes him the […]

Review: SUMMER OF NIGHT (Novel)

Written by Dan Simmons, 1991 There is an unexpected advantage to being my age. I’ve been around, sure, but there is still so much outside my footprint. I’ve got feelers out everywhere, normally yielding at least a geographical plotting of everything in the arena even if I never take he/she/it one on one, but from […]

Review: CAMPFIRE TALES

Directed by Matt Cooper, Martin Kunert, David Semel, 1997 Written by Martin Kunert, Eric Manes, Matt Cooper How does one review a piece of horror best described as cute? I’ve got no problems with CAMPFIRE TALES, which may as well be the Showtime version of “ARE YOU AFRAID OF THE DARK?”. I’m sure they had […]

Review: The Dentist

Directed by Brian Yuzna, 1996Written by Dennis Paoli, Stuart Gordon, Charles Finch To me The Dentist is the straight-to-video movie.  I can’t tell if it was an actual STV release, but it is the one movie I remember seeing on video store shelves everywhere as a child and thinking to myself, "Wow, did they really […]

Review: Aftermath

Written and Directed by Nacho Cerda, 1994 Aftermath is art so rare, so exacting and so human that it will penetrate all who view it to their deepest core.  This is not theory, this is irrefutable fact.  It is gravity.  Nacho Cerda’s short film is a definition of gravity possessing such validity that had Newton […]

Review: Dellamorte Dellamore (Cemetery Man)

Directed by Michele Soavi, 1994 As an opening sentence there’s little I can do to make this seem less hyperbolic, and for that I make no attempt to apologize, but I shit you negative when I say Michele Soavi’s work on Dellamorte Dellamore is some of the best direction the celluloid art has ever seen […]

Review: Audition

Directed by Takashi Miike, 1999 Even though it’s only seven or so years old, Audition is almost a legendary film already.  It doesn’t have a mainstream following yet, but it’s the kind of viral movie that one of your friends sees and then says, "Dude, you’ve GOT to see this one Japanese movie!  It’s so […]

Review: Nightbreed

Directed by Clive Barker, 1990 The ’80s/early ’90s were easily the glory days of horror. It was a time when true imagination was on the screen. Material actual felt original back then. It didn’t feel processed. It didn’t feel engineered. It felt right. Even the sequels felt original. I’ll take a Nightmare on Elm Street […]
