“Dream The Crow Black Dream”: Jerry’s Look Back At THE CROW

When something hits for me, it HITS. I’ve always been that way and I doubt that the fervor I have for everything I dig will ever lessen. That excitement, while having led me into a lot of great memories, have given me an equal amount of recent moments, full of wondering, “What the hell was […]

MY FIRST R-RATED THEATRICAL EXPERIENCE: “SAW” TEN YEARS LATER

(BJ Colangelo as a 14 year old. Feel free to judge those broke-ass extensions) 2004 was a strange year for me.  I graduated from a very small junior high school in June and a few months later I was thrown into the chaotic world of an overpopulated and underfunded high school.  I liked to think […]

Exploitation Alley: THE HOUSE OF EXORCISM (1974)!!!

If 1970’s possession films aren’t your thing, they probably should be. Most of the time they can be downright creepy, often the right amount of cheese, and there’s always a chance that you might get surprised with random boobs for no reason at all. Actually, I’m pretty sure that I just explained the film I […]

“All Of My Friends Are Monsters, and My Heroes Are Survivors”: An Ode to The Grandmother of Scream Queens

Yesterday, we all found out that Marilyn Burns had passed away, and while it might not have affected some, it certainly did leave a mark on horror fans everywhere. It seems that a lot of people throw stories up about the passing of genre greats almost immediately, and for a good while today, I fought […]

A “Renny Harlin Horror”Double Feature Adventure: PRISON/A NIGHTMARE ON ELM STREET 4!!

Alright fright fanatics, it’s Double Feature Adventure time. While my usual sidekick Natty isn’t along for the ride this time (she’s currently hard at work writing the next Pauly Shore film. Not really, but hey, she has big dreams, ok?), I had a jonesin’ for the early horror entries from Finnish director (and obviously my […]

Exploitation Alley: CONTAMINATION .7

I decided to ask a friend for a recommendation recently (said friend being  Jerry) , and he suggested this epic, train wreck of a film. After viewing it, I still don’t know if I want to punch him and revoke my friendship, or bake him cookies, and give him a high five.  I mean, this film […]

Josh Soriano’s FIVE BEST “OLD DARK HOUSE” FILMS

On a stormy night, amidst the the trees on a fog-shrouded​ hilltop, a large house sits. Inside, a group of people have come together to hear the reading of a will. As the night continues, the ​​storm’s grasp strengthens and renders it impossible for the group to leave. They’ll have to spend the night. However, one […]

Exploitation Alley: MONSTROSITY (AKA- THE ATOMIC BRAIN)!!!

This is one film that I simply could not believe I had never seen before. I have a space in my heart reserved for weird, trippy (and somewhat terrible films) films, especially if they’re in black and white…I just can’t get enough.  Alas, I went into this expecting something great, and within a few minutes […]
