Before the door slams slut on 2015, hopefully hitting it in the ass on the way out, here’s a prediction: 2016 will be 1992 in different clothes.
Consider the evidence: there’s a new Batman movie, The X Files is back on TV and Clinton is running for President. Also, the horror movies slated for release are mostly sequels and remakes.
1992 gave us such culturally enriching experiences as House IV, Prom Night III: The Last Kiss and the awesome Witchcraft 4: The Virgin Heart, and while 2016’s line-up isn’t quite that bad, it still leaves much to be desired. Among the least desirable titles is a remake of The Blob, from the director of the When A Stranger Calls remake.
Amityville 1992: It’s About Time was the 6th film in the haunted house franchise, and guess what? Not only is another Amityville film due in 2016, but if »

Ah, cockroaches. They just don’t get much love in the Horror genre. One would think that these lowly creatures, clicking and flitting, scurrying and shuttling from dark to light would be prime fodder for terror terrain. However, up until 1988’s The Nest, there are only a handful of critter flicks starring these grotesque end- of- the- worlders. Concorde Pictures (Roger Corman’s latest company at the time) unleashed this gloriously gruesome roach-a-rama on an unsuspecting public and watched them squirm with delight.
Actually, The Nest only received a limited release by Concorde, but made its coin when it was released on video by MGM later that same year. Reviews were generally positive, with critics seeing it as a good natured update of 1950’s monster movies, of course with new, improved and gnarly special effects. The Nest is, shall we say, a great deal moister than its bug strewn brethren of yore. »
