After starting in Washington D.C. nine years ago Horror Movie Night has expanded to include chapters in Austin, Dallas and Chicago. Horror’s Not Dead’s own Brian Kelley is the originator and programmer of this illustrious weekly Wednesday night tradition which features a “classic” horror film. Each week I will be reviewing/commenting on the past week’s selection so do your best to find the film, most of which have not made it past VHS, and follow along. Better yet, start your own chapter!
It’s been a long time since I’ve sat down and watched my way through the Ghoulies or Critters franchises, probably since they were originally released, but recently I bought all of them and plan on watching them again. Why the hell not? Who doesn’t love small creatures that kill and cause mischief? I’ve always been a big fan of the Gremlins films so when I read this week’s HMN pick was akin to all of these films I was stoked. Turns out that Stephen Paul Contreras’ Beasties has much less to do with the others and is beyond confusing with ideas and themes that are all over the place.
