BSJ

This week’s Exploitation Alley movie was suggested to me by Jerry. I usually tend to choose older films, or films considered exploitation or genre classics, but I decided to go for it andcheck out something fresh, new, and (hopefully) exciting.

A decade back when we first started Icons Of Fright, one of my personal favorite columns here was from my dear friend Jason Alvino called “The Vault Of The Forgotten & Obscure!” While tons of titles that we had vague memories of as kids were still trickling into the ever-growing DVD market at the time, […]

There are moments in my life where I make extremely unwise decisions and I will be the last to admit it when I’ve made a mistake.  However, this is an instance where I will scream from the rooftops how much of an idiot I am.  I’m the type of person that likes to watch franchises […]

hshc2

For this week’s Exploitation Alley, I decided to take it way back. Back to 1958 to be exact. A time where wearing pants was considered a form of rebellion (if you were female), and parents were the most unhip people ever.  Ok, maybe that last part is still valid, but either way, it was a […]
