Stake Land [2010] Movie Review Recommendation

Stake Land [2010]

Stake Land, huh, this budget mixture of The Road, Zombieland and other post-apocalyptic movies is pretty watchable. And don't be fooled by the adrenaline filled bloodbath at the beginning of the movie, the...
Dylan Dog: Dead of Night [2011] Movie Review Recommendation

Dylan Dog: Dead of Night [2011]

First of all, I did read this comic when I was a kid, not a lot, but still enough to remember the main characters and the story. Now, this movie tried to do an almost impossible task of making a good comic...
The Blob [1988] Movie Review Recommendation

The Blob [1988]

Based on the original movie from 1958, this eighties remake is great. Actually there is a new The Blob project, and Rob Zombie was slated to direct this new version, but he backed out (I think that it would...
Day of the Dead [1985] Movie Review Recommendation

Day of the Dead [1985]

This was Romero`s third zombie movie (Night Of The Living Dead, Dawn Of The Dead), and you can expect nothing less than perfection from the Zombie master. In this movie he tried to explain more of the Zombie...
Black Death [2010] Movie Review Recommendation

Black Death [2010]

Black Death is the fourth movie directed by Christopher Smith (Triangle, Severance, Creep and that's it) and I have to admit that I loved every one. This time, with a bit more money he was able to make a movie...
Night of the Comet [1984] Movie Review Recommendation

Night of the Comet [1984]

Directed and written by Thom Eberhardt (The Night Before, Without a Clue) this overlooked eighties gem is pretty entertaining. Although not scary, it's pretty good with the whole post-apocalyptic...
Fright Night [1985] Movie Review Recommendation

Fright Night [1985]

With the imminent release of the remake, it's time to brush up on this eighties classic. I seriously doubt that the new version will be any good, yes, the cast is phenomenal, but I am having doubts that they...
Altitude [2010] Movie Review Recommendation

Altitude [2010]

It's really hard to define this movie, it uses typical ingredients for a teenage horror movie, but still, it's much more than just that mixing mystery, science fiction and even time travel. All this lumped-in...
Re-Animator [1985] Movie Review Recommendation

Re-Animator [1985]

Loosely based on a H.P. Lovecraft story, this movie is yet another example of a good eighties horror movie. Cooperation between Stuart Gordon (From Beyond, Castle Freak, Stuck) and Brian Yuzna (Society, Faust:...
Split Second [1992] Movie Review Recommendation

Split Second [1992]

Yes, this is a B movie that you could catch any given night on TV, but this is a hell of a B movie. Riding on the eighties vibe and slowly transcending into nineties, it uses the best of both decades. I also...
Session 9 [2001] Movie Review Recommendation

Session 9 [2001]

Directed by now famous Brad Anderson (The Machinist, Transsiberian) this little gem has somehow managed to stay under the radar. It's not pretentious, nor glamorous but more visceral and realistic (as much as...
Julia's Eyes AKA Los ojos de Julia [2010] Movie Review Recommendation

Julia’s Eyes AKA Los ojos de Julia [2010]

As soon as I saw that Guillermo del Toro was attached somehow to this project I knew that it's going to be good. He produced this movie and Guillem Morales (The Uncertain Guest) wrote and directed it with a...
The Plague [2006] Movie Review Recommendation

The Plague [2006]

Although this movie is marketed as Clive Barker's The Plague, I doubt that Clive was significantly involved. I guess he sat down one day and wrote a short story that was supposed to be developed by the...
The Fly [1986] Movie Review Recommendation

The Fly [1986]

Based on a story that was published in Playboy in 1957 (the following year it was turned into a movie The Fly starring magnificent Vincent Price), this movie is a remake of the 1958 version. With David...
