House of the Dead 2 (2005)

Director: Michael Hurst

Writers: Mark A. Altman, Michael Roesch, Peter Scheerer

Cast: Emanuelle Vauguier (Alexandria), Ed Quinn (Ellis), Sticky Fingaz (Dalton), Nadine Velazquez (Rodriguez), Sid Haig (Professor Curien)

I can’t believe that I’m singing the praises of a “House of the Dead” movie. The first one was such a big disappointment, that a sequel that was so dissimilar to it in every way was a pretty welcome sight. I’m not a gamer, and perhaps I might have enjoyed the original, a bit more if I had. Doubtful, but maybe.

This one has Sid Haig, the hardest working man in exploitation film for four decades and counting as a professor that has come up with a way to reanimate the dead. He picks up a test subject/victim from the local college. She ends up being the »

Stage Fright (2014) Film Review

20 April 2014 12:48 AM, PDT

Review by Jesse Miller, MoreHorror.com

Stage Fright is a Horror-Comedy Musical that pays homage to the slasher films of the 80s while delivering exposition in the form of songs that pay homage to the musicals and rock operas of old.

The film is written and directed by Jerome Sable, who also worked on music and lyrics found here.

Sable brings a wonderful manic energy to the plot and I wouldn’t be surprised if he grew up avidly watching slasher films of the 1970s and 80s because everything here, from the nasty twisting story to the creative kills, reminds me of the likes of such horror films as Friday the 13th and Sleepaway Camp.

Allie MacDonald is pitch perfect in her role as the tormented yet sweet Camilla. She’s the typical sweet but awkward protagonist you’d find in one of the Friday the 13th films – you know »

Return of the Living Dead Part 2 (1988) review

19 April 2014 11:35 PM, PDT

Reviewed by Kevin Scott, MoreHorror.com

Writer: Ken Wiederhorn

Director: Ken Wiederhorn

Cast: Michael Kenworthy (Jesse), Thor Van Lingen (Billy), James Karen (Ed), Thom Matthews (Joey), Suzanne Snyder (Brenda), Dana Ashbrook (Tom Esseck), Philip Bruns (Doc Mandel)

Return of the Living Dead may have been the first zomedy ever. It was as far I’m concerned anyway. An off the rails and completely over the top parody homage that had the pedigree of being written by the guy that penned “Night of the Living Dead” and directed by the guy who wrote “Alien”. A very nostalgic movie for me, and an all-around favorite to just about any horror fan that I know of. Which brings me to the question of “Did the sequel that came three years later fair as an acceptable follow up?”

I’ve learned a couple of things about part 2 that I didn’t know. It wasn »

Phantasm (1979) Review

17 April 2014 1:21 AM, PDT

Reviewed By: Chris Wright, Morehorror.com

Directed By: Don Coscarelli

Written By: Don Coscarelli

Starring: A. Michael Baldwin (Mike), Bill Thornbury (Jody), Reggie Bannister (Reggie), Angus Scrimm (The Tall Man), Kathy Lester (Lady in Lavender), Terrie Kalbus (Fortuneteller’s Granddaughter), Kenneth V. Jones (Caretaker), Susan Harper (Girlfriend), Lynn Eastman-Rossi (Sally), David Arntzen (Toby), Ralph Richmond (Bartender), Bill Cone (Tommy), Laura Mann (Double Lavender), Mary Ellen Shaw (Fortuneteller), Myrtle Scotton (Maid)

Boy!!! A quick way to send children behind the sofa is put this often overlooked Phantasm from Don Coscarelli on your television set. I’d be scared to go to a funeral home if I was up at a young age watching this at night! This movie is must see for fans who like low budget movies. “Halloween” may have gotten the most glory but I think “Phantasm” is a worthy top 5 of the 1970s in terms of low budget. »
