Nightmares on Netflix: Flight of the Living Dead

“You thought what? That it was me gnawing on the passengers? Nah, I’m a vegetarian.” ~Frank Listen to the last podcast? Well, then you know how much I love zombie movies. Well, I love -most- zombie movies. Since they’ve been trendy and cool, the movie industry has been over saturated in them. The majority are […]

Late to the Party: The Breakfast Club

This week’s choice is brought to you by my co-worker Julia, who was kind enough to suggest this one to me when I was rather stuck on which movie to watch. Of course, it’s been suggested by other people before, but she really pinned it down for me. Click here for the live-tweeting stream. Please note […]

Ridiculed & Ruined Part II

There have been some terrible remakes, and I’m counting them down. We’ve already done the first five in Part I and if you haven’t read it, you should totally check it out. If you guys are liking my ‘Top Ten’ lists, it’s possible that I’ll do more in the future. Let’s me reminisce on some […]

Ridiculed & Ruined Part I

Last week as an added bonus to my ‘Nightmares on Netflix’ weekly post, I decided to write about what I consider to be some of the best horror movie remakes. In that post, I mentioned that if someone commented, what I would do this week, is do a Top Ten of the -worst- horror movie […]

Remade and Remastered Part II

Every horror movie out there is at risk of being remade. Each passing year the industry ramps up the number of these retellings, so that soon enough we’re going to be drowning in them. Never fear! There are many that are actually quite good. Just because the original is amazing, doesn’t mean that a fresh […]

Remade and Remastered Part I

I figured that since I submitted by ‘Nightmares on Netflix’ piece late this week, that at the very least, I should offer all you guys a little something extra. With Fright Night having just hit/stab/slice/chop theatres across the country, and it being talked about on one of our most recent podcasts, I’ve decided to take […]

Nightmares on Netflix: Idle Hands

“Yeah, well, we weren’t in Hell! I mean, there was this bright white light at the end of a long tunnel, right? And there was these chicks’ voices, and that music… kinda uncool music, like, Enya. And these chicks’ voices, they were saying, “come to us, come towards the light.” We figured, fuck it, I […]

Late to the Party: The Rocketeer

The Rocketeer was recommended to me by both Kim and Brendon, as well as one of my best tweeps, so I thought I’d give it a go. I had high hopes for it when I discovered that it was a Disney film, so I hunkered down to give it a good watch. Click here for […]

Late to the Party: Stand by Me

Ted, Vern, Gordie and Chris

My main motivation to watch this film was that it starred Wil Wheaton, who is quickly becoming one of my nerd idols.  I’ve seen him in the Guild, a couple of clips from Star Trek: The Next Generation and an episode of The Big Bang Theory.  I wanted to see something of his that wasn’t […]

Nightmares on Netflix: Paranormal Activity 2

It’s strange getting to do a review of a movie that’s come out in the last couple of years. What’s stranger still is that only the -second- film of this growing franchise is up on Canadian Netflix. It’s sort of a shame, considering that I do enjoy the first so much more, it was reminiscent […]

Late to the Party: Dawn of the Dead

This week’s blast-from-the-past review is for George Romero’s Dawn of the Dead.  Hopefully I won’t piss Kim off too much, ‘cause she’d probably hunt me down and hurt me for saying anything bad about it.  Luckily for me, I quite enjoyed it.

Nightmares on Netflix: Devour

“Some people worship Satan for power.. money. Me? I did it for the women. There were more chicks willing to get down at a Black Mass than at a Judas Priest concert.” ~ Tattoo Artist What do you get when you mix Adam Gross (writer of the DOA movie) and David Winkler (director of A […]

Late to the Party: Night of the Comet

Regina at the arcade

This week’s ‘80s movie was Night of the Comet, which was one of the few suggested to me that I’d never heard of.  Only Bree of Geekin’ Out fame mentioned this particular movie to me, telling me that “Zombies + Valley girls = horror comedy gold!”, so I figured there wasn’t a whole lot to […]

Nightmares on Netflix: I Know What You Did Last Summer

Nightmares on Netflix-I Know What You Did Last Summer

“You got a letter? I got run over, Helen gets her hair chopped off, Julie gets a dead body in her trunk, and you get a letter? Oh, that’s balanced!” ~Barry The 1990s focused heavily on their teenage ‘victims’. Lots of sequels started out the decade (Child’s Play, The Leprechaun), and even while more metafictional […]
