Basket Case (1982)

Basket Case - The tenant in room 7 is very small, very twisted and very mad.

Belial is one of the many names for The Devil. The meaning of the word in Hebrew is "worthless" and this could quite accurately describe the motivations for the anger-fuelled murder spree of Belial and his brother Duane in Henenlotter's first feature length horror movie. This also begs the question "What kind of parents call one member of a Siamese... Click to read more "Basket Case"

The Cabin in the Woods - If you hear a strange sound outside... have sex.

The Cabin in the Woods is a rarity in modern horror in that it gets a lot right. Directed by Drew Goddard (who also wrote the movie alongside Joss Whedon), it is apparent that his time writing and producing TV was well spent, mastering the art before delving into film. Whedon's influence is also very noticeable within the execution of the film, the... Click to read more "The Cabin in the Woods"

They will make cemeteries their cathedrals and the cities will be your tombs.

Demons - They will make cemeteries their cathedrals and the cities will be your tombs.

Despite the expected poor dubbing and tawdry rock music (sounds familiar), Demons (Dèmoni) is a gore inspiring and influential Italian horror movie that has obviously helped fashion many a horror movie that has been created since. Packed to the gunwales with stereotypes and cringe worthy dialog, Demons is also brimming with grisly and creative guts... Click to read more "Demons (Dèmoni)"

Demons 2 - The Nightmare Returns

Demons 2: The Nightmare Is Back (Dèmoni 2: L'incubo ritorna) is pretty much an Italian zombie flick but with the undead referred to a demons and possessing a little more flair than the shambling gut-piles we are used to from the Italian reanimated population. Written by Dario Argento and directed by Lamberto Bava, Demons 2 has all of the cheesy pop... Click to read more "Demons 2 (Dèmoni 2: L'incubo ritorna)"

Evil Dead Trap - Toshiharu Ikeda's Japanese Slasher

Considering Evil Dead Trap (Shiryo no wana) was made in 1988 is still kicks the ass of many of the recent cookie-cut J-Horrors. Rather than being a supernatural tale steeped in folklore and overrun by long haired apparitions (as we have come to expect from Japanese horror), Evil Dead Trap is more reminiscent of non-Asian horrors of the era such as ...

Evil Dead Trap 2: Hideki - Beware of the "Box" Cutter

Evil Dead Trap 2: Hideki (Shiryô no wana 2: Hideki) has very little to do with it predecessor apart from the occasional appearance of the now older Hideki (the ex-conjoined tormentor revealed in the final section of Evil Dead Trap). Izô Hashimoto (scriptwriter of Akira) takes the writing (along with Chiaki Konaka) and directorial reins and provides... Click to read more "Evil Dead Trap 2: Hideki (Shiryô no wana 2: Hideki)"
