Mother's Day - I'm so proud of my boys. They never forget their momma.

For a Troma movie, Mother's Day is a relatively serious affair but with the complete absurdity that is usually associated with Troma don't expect anything too austere. Mother's Day is a deplorable, twisted and darkly humorous exploitation flick like what I Spit on your Grave would have been like if it starred The Marx Brothers. The premise of the m...

New York Ripper - New York City: It's a nice place to visit, but you wouldn't want to die there!

Ah, Lucio Fulci. He stopped making sex comedies just in time for his now-legendary forays into horror to get him banned in the UK. Mr. Fulci has the dubious honour of three of his films - The Beyond, The House by the Cemetery and Zombie - appearing on the infamous video nasties list of '84, a list dominated, incidentally, by his countrymen.

A Nightmare on Elm Street 2: Freddy's Revenge - Someone is coming back to Elm Street!

Faced with having to express an opinion on the whole Elm Street franchise, the most daunting one to rein judgment upon has to be the second installment, Freddy's Revenge. The main reason for this is due to the two very different scenarios in which this movie has seduced my retina and caressed my occipital lobes.Scenario one is as a horror newbie wh...

A Nightmare on Elm Street 3: Dream Warriors - If you think you'll get out alive, You must be dreaming.

Despite being one of the better sequels in the Elm Street franchise, A Nightmare on Elms Street 3: Dream Warriors is definitely the turning point where Freddy starts to show off to his audience and begins the descending spiral towards the cartoon character he is destined to become. For the most part, director Chuck Russell manages to recapture the ... Click to read more "A Nightmare on Elm Street 3: Dream Warriors"
