All We Want for Christmas is… MOTHER KRAMPUS aka 12 DEATHS OF CHRISTMAS

A curse comes back to haunt a town in Essex 25 years later after an innocence woman is blamed for a series of child disappearances and murdered as a result. Depending on where you live the movie is neither known as Mother Krampus (North American release title) or the 12 Deaths of Christmas (the UK…

DEATH-SCORT SERVICE 2

At least once a year I get an email from the good folks at Sleaze Box. I wait all year for these movies and I can’t say that I am ever let down. Just like their name suggests, these are sleazy releases filled with all the blood and boobs that you could imagine. Out of…

A RECKONING Explores What Life Could Be Like If We Were Truly Alone

A dark, apocalyptic science fiction tale that ostensibly features one single character, A Reckoning is not for the faint of heart. It’s brutality is not in its visuals, but rather in the psychological pain of the lead character, credited simply as “The Lone Man”. What makes this pain so visceral and so effective is incredible…

Ithaca Fantastik 2017 Presents… TOP KNOT DETECTIVE – A Comedy Gem that Gets the Genre Film Seal of Approval from Our Resident Extreme Horror Afficionado

[Editor’s Note: Kenny is all about horror and metal, but is open to writing about all different stuff. So, this was his first piece here about a non-horror film… and with that, I think it’s a pretty great look at an interest movie.] Before we began this review I feel I must offer this disclaimer:…

Halloween Hangover, Day 3: Ithaca Fantastik 2017 Presents… TRAGEDY GIRLS!

Social media sites are some of the most highly visited sites on the Internet. People have friends far and wide thanks to sites like Twitter, Facebook, Instagram, Tumblr, etc. Sometimes they’re a gateway for people and they help advance some socialization skills prior to human interaction. You can air your grievances, profess your love, or…

The…

Halloween Hangover, Day 2: Ithaca Fantastik 2017 Presents… HAGAZUSSA – A Horror Movie About Self-Fulfilling Prophecy

Hagazussa: A Heathen’s Curse is a beautifully filmed, claustrophobic period piece filled with enough dread and horror to keep you watching even though it is nearly a silent film and what little dialogue it has is sub-titled. Hagazussa is so well-made that my jaw dropped when I read that this was writer/director Lukas Feigelfeld’s FILM…

Halloween Hangover, Day 1: Justin and Blaine on Something Weird/AGFA’s THE ZODIAC KILLER

Leave it to Something Weird Video and AGFA to dig up an oddity like The Zodiac Killer. This is a bizarre film who’s own tale of production is 10x more interesting than the film itself. Tom Hanson was a San Francisco small business owner who was running into some money problems. He hatched a scheme…

31 Days, Day 27: THIS IS NOT A REVIEW – Adam Loves OLDBOY

I need to post about Oldboy. It’s an amazing movie. My friend introduced me to it 15ish years ago. Part of the Trilogy. Sympathy for Mr. Vengeance, Oldboy, and Lady Vengeance. I recommend watching them all. I don’t remember Mr. Vengeance and only remember a beautiful snow scene in Lady Vengeance. Oldboy is a tragic…

31 Days, Day 27: MANSFIELD 66/67 Presents the LaVeyan Component of Jayne Mansfield’s Life – Complete with Greek Chorus and Creative Storytelling Technique

Jayne Mansfield was a beautiful, buxom blonde starlet oft compared or even mistaken for Marilyn Monroe. Her fame never reached Marilyn status, though her story is a far more interesting one, right down to her bizarre connection to the Satanic High Priest, Anton LaVey. In the new documentary, opening tonight on the big screen, Mansfield…
