Deep Dark

Director/Writer: Michael Medaglia Stars: Sean McGrath, Anne Sorce, Denise Poirier Deep Dark (2015) – IMDb A starving artist, no direction, what seems like less than no talent, living with his mother, looking for his way to finally express himself and find his art. Now to me, this movie is deliciously dark and funny at the same time. It’s twisted in all the right ways. And it’s one that has to be watched to really be fully understood.  It’s definitely not something that is fully expected when you’re watching. To me, this movie is something totally memorable. Once you watch it, you’re definitely never going to forget it’s concept. For me, it’s definitely a movie I love to watch. Maybe it’s not one I remember off the top of my head over and over, but once the memory is triggered, it’s once I come back to. While I would love to call it a five bloody kitties movie, the fact that I do have problems remembering the title, unfortunately relegates it to a mere four bloody kitties out of...

The Bay

Director: Barry Levinson Writers: Michael Wallach, Barry Levinson Stars: Will Rogers, Kristen Connolly, Kether Donohue The Bay (2012) – IMDb This movie would easily qualify as “found footage” except that the footage is less found and more recovered from government sources (supposedly).  It’s an interesting mixture of disease/government failure and cover up as well as horror. Now how good is it? That’s rather questionable. Acting, camera quality, and so on are pretty weak, general story line is also not among the strongest I’ve seen. So personally I can’t call it anything particularly wonderful. So, in short… this is a two bloody kitties out of five. Something I can easily get through, but not really worth a re-watch unless it’s something you’re personally in...

George A. Romero – Beyond Zombies

George A. Romero has long been long standing figure in the Horror movie world. Anyone who has an somewhat serious interest in movies knows him as the man who created the Zombie movie – his classic Night of the Living Dead will forever live in the minds of Americans as one of the most frightening movies they’d ever seen. However, what most people don’t realize is that George was involved in horror even beyond zombies. Yes, he kept his hand in it producing his hits Dawn of the Dead, Day of the Dead, and more recently adding to it with Land of the Dead, Diary of the Dead,  and Survival of the Dead – but he was also a key figure in the production of the series Tales from the Dark Side – a late night TV show that aired in the 1980’s. On top of producing the Tales From the Dark Side series, he wrote a number of episodes, and eventually wrote a segment for the movie that was released in 1990, again with no zombies. Other movies that many people will mention, but perhaps not immediately recognize as being George A. Romero are Monkey Shines and Creepshow. In short, the loss experienced by the Horror movie genre on July 16 2017, is rather astounding. While it’s one that would have been experienced eventually, it’s still not one...

Sleepaway Camp

Director/Writer: Robert Hiltzik Stars: Felissa Rose, Jonathan Tiersten, Karen Fields Sleepaway Camp (1983) – IMDb Classic 1980’s horror film right down to the beginning credits. Families and kids out on the lake for some gorgeous summer fun and then… some dies a horrible death! Now, if you’re looking for a classic ’80’s horror, I have to say, this one nails it on the head. From acting to death scenes, this movie has it all. I sort of wonder how it was I never saw it before. There really are some pretty creative murders. So, in short, this is a great movie if you’re in to 80’s horror. I give it a three bloody kitties out of five myself. I’d rate it higher, but for me 80’s horror is still a little too campy to get too high a rating, but it’s always fun to...

Boogeyman

Director: Stephen Kay Writer: Eric Kripke Stars: Barry Watson, Emily Deschanel, Lucy Lawless Boogeyman (2005) So this is one of those movies I was watching a second time specifically just to write a review. It’s not really one of my favorites. Though it does have some of my favorite actors in it. So the over all concept of this movie is given away in the title – the Boogeyman. It’s a well used concept obviously, the Boogeyman concept being used in terms of everyone, including big names like Freddy Krueger, Michael Myers, and Jason – this is really a movie using it the name to give the Boogieman a lore all his own. How successful were they? I’m not sure I’d say they managed all that well, personally, as on my second viewing of this movie I barely paid attention enough to really give a solid review. In short, it’s not enough to really hold my attention for a re-watch, giving it a two bloody kitties out of...
