Zombie vs. Robot Take 2

Posted in Reviews on June 20, 2010 by sideshowmassacre

It’s obvious that I’ve been away from this blog a long time. It’s about 6 months since I’ve even attempted a draft but I’ve missed it and I’m desperate for an excuse to immerse myself in the horror films once again.

For the first time in quite a while, there are some exciting new films on the way and I’ve just had the pleasure of watching through REC 2 and the surprising Dogtooth so I have some things to talk about.

Stay tuned, there’s plenty of fun stuff on the way.

Boogey Boogey Boogens?

Posted in Reviews with tags , , , , on January 3, 2010 by sideshowmassacre

I just slogged through an obscure monster flick from the very beginning of the 80’s (which is coincidentally also the very beginning of my life). The Boogens is a dark and effective film despite being dragged down by too much talk and not nearly enough action.

A mine is purposely demolished to seal up these turtle-like creatures. Years later when they attempt to re-open the mine, the Boogen are set free to cause very little trouble and kill very few. Practically harmless.

The kill scenes are few and far between and the movie relies on the killing being done off screen which is not uncommon. The corpses and creature aftermath are enjoyably bloody and there are a few decent “It’s definitely dead now” jump scares.

I’m a big fan of creature features from the 80’s. Critters, Ghoulies, CHUD are some of my favorites. The Boogens is a hilarious bit of nostalgia and you’ll be hard pressed to find your own copy.

Luckily there is hope. Check out campslasher He will show you the way. On to his next gem.

Happy New Year!

Wishing all my firends, family and fans a happy new year. Best wishes to my non-readers except you can’t see this so you lose out…jerks.

2010 will be a horrific year and I plan to share every moment.

Stay tuned.

Dog Eared and Left at the Bus Stop

Posted in Horror News, My Horror Collection, Reviews with tags , , , , , on December 27, 2009 by sideshowmassacre

Two horrific murders take place in a small home in England. The house becomes vacant and a University professor/paranormal investigator moves in to try and document ghostly doings with the help of her tech guy and the troubled new student from her class. Clive Barker’s Book of Blood is yet another disappointing adaptation of an amazing authors work.

Open the Book and Let me In.

I just recently picked up a copy of John Ajvide Lindqvist’s novel “Let the Right One In”. At this point I’ve watched the movie adaptation more times then I’d like to admit and thought it was about time to give the book a chance.
