FORBIDDEN ZONE is the definition of a cult classic, inside and out, as it was about as underground a film as one can get, with its cast and those involved with the project. The truly sad thing about this film which was made in 1980 is that I had never (more…)
The ultra-hip STRAY CAT ROCK series starts off with the first of 5-films, DELINQUENT GIRL BOSS, directed by Yasuharu Hasebe (STRAY CAT ROCK: SEX HUNTER, FEMALE PRISONER SCORPION: #701’s GRUDGE SONG) and starring the Japanese (w/Korean ancestry known as a Zainichi Korean) pop singer-turned-actress Akiko Wada (more…)
Wild Eye Releasing, whom many readers that read reviews here generally find that I abhor many of their films (but also have recently found a winner amongst them with MURDER UNIVERSITY), are back with a new seemingly low-budget horror flick revolving around the spirit of Christmas and Santa Clause. It has a plethora of B-film actors and actresses one will find familiar and is directed by (more…)
SLAUGHTER TALES is a total piece of shit that was created by a kid not even 15-years old, but SLAUGHTER TALES is one of those “so crappy it’s completely awesome” kind of things and is full of laughs and great entertainment value. Director, actor, producer, cinematographer, screenwriter, make-up artist, and every other type of job one can think of needed on the set, Johnny Dickie, wears a plethora of creative hats. He is the creator of a zero-budget, z-grade, production with a zero-talented cast of “actors” that underneath it all is full of so much heart and soul that it is (more…)
The indie horror film ZOMBIE A-HOLE starts out with a half-naked girl in a thong with her tits hanging out running from some crazy maniac with a machete of sorts, and is followed up by a completely naked girl running down the same path immediately after the previous girl is getting hacked up to death. So far, the first five minutes had my attention. Completely. I let it slide the fact that the film has a (more…)
Rudyard Kipling’s MARK OF THE BEAST is, of course, an indie horror film based on a short story by Rudyard Kipling of the same name, and upon reading it after viewing directors’ Johnathan Gorman and Thomas Edward film (both directors’ of the BIKINI BLOODBATH Trilogy fame) , I feel their story is a pretty direct and accurate modernization of Kipling’s story that does it justice and keeps to the story almost exactly. One can find Kipling’s short story online for free if they care to read it to compare this indie horror film with the original story, as watching the Blood Bath Pictures release helped clarify the story as it is told in a contemporary manner and style all its own.
The film starts out with (more…)
The low-budget indie horror flick DROPPING EVIL, directed, shot, co-produced, and co-edited by Adam Protextor and written by Louis Doerge, had all the ingredients for a typical slasher film whose setting was the dreaded woods and entailed a small group of teens getting away for the weekend. I thought to myself—how mundane! I have seen this before and it definitely works out better if there is some budget and familiar names attached to the project. Is this indie horror film going to fall victim to all the typical mistakes and missteps that so many other indie horror films fall to? (more…)
