American Horror Story Season 1 Episode 3 Review


American Horror Story is one of the more addicting horror television programs that I’ve seen in a long time. Each episode keeps drawing me into a whole new world of story telling and second guessing. I thought I had this thing figured out, then a wrench is thrown into my view, and I have to think on my feet to get moving towards a resolution. The third episode brought onto the screen several different story milestones and things are just beginning, which makes this so much better to watch than your average movie.

At this point in the story we get to find out the original owners of the house of murder, as they are calling it. There was a strange doctor that was giving abortions to women in his basement and there are some interesting Frankenstein moments where he’s working what appears to be a chimaera of sorts. The visuals here are impressive, and I definitely thought hit was a strong point in the episode.

Meanwhile in the present, the marriage that has been rocked by infidelity continues to unravel when the mistress shows up and says she’s keeping the baby. Our two faced friend comes through with a much needed helping shovel to the face which was awesome. However, not all is safe as the doctor is being drugged by someone, and he think it’s the maid!

This is quite the interesting point in the series, with a murder, a helper, and someone trying to drug the man of the house. I liked the way it was going, and it was apparent that the show is building up to something. I haven’t quite made out whether everyone is dead, if only a few of them are dead, or this is all a dream.

American Horror Story season 1 episode 3 really does do a good job of mixing storytelling with horror in a quick capsule of around 40 some odd minutes. It kept me interested, which is hard to do with television programming. I’ll have another review updated sooner than later.

American Horror Story Season 1 Episode 2 Review


After yesterday’s sex filled episode featuring a guy in a full gimp suit, I was wondering what the second episode would have in store for me, and it really let me down in the sexual department, although there were definitely some nice overtones. This second episode opened up with a 1970s serial killer rampage inside the home that the new family is now living in, and it was done quite good. Without revealing too much gore the shots were well edited, and the elements of fear were set into motion within a few minutes of the opening sequencing. I thought it was a great opener and really set the tone for everything else.

The show moved into an odd story line in which the father has to lie about going to Boston to see his former lover, and in the meantime the wife and daughter are terrorized by a group that is hell bent on reenacting the crime from the opening sequence.

This episode did two things very well, it told another piece of the story about the house, and it also set up another distrust angle between the husband and the wife. I thought those two emotional connections really shown through the underlying tension that was had.

Visually, this second episode ramped up things and while I was still confused by a great deal of the plot points, I found myself mesmerized with many of the details, wondering how far this thing would truly get. I found that there were some great moments overall, and the clichés that plagued many slasher films were not found here. In fact, it was quite the opposite, getting me to cheer for the family as they fought their way back to life rather than accepting the fate of a serial killer or the rampage of lunatics.

The end of the episode left me thinking about what I would do in the situation, and I wasn’t able to answer. I’m probably a big wuss. Episode 2 of American Horror Story Season 1 is quite good, and is still delivering one hell of a punch.

American Horror Story Season 1 Episode 1 Review


Today instead of a movie review, I’ll be discussing the first episode of season 1 of American Horror Story, which is currently available through a variety of streaming outlets as well as blu ray disc here. The show caught me off guard, and while I don’t have cable, I finally started to watch it through Netflix, and will be commenting on it, as well as posing some interior ideas, questions and thoughts on the show. If you haven’t seen it yet, you might want to skip this review and instead visit some of my previous work on the page. I also would ask you to click through the amazon links as they help me keep a roof over my head and food in my mouth.

The first episode of this show was definitely a good set up. A doctor is caught cheating on his wife, although we don’t get to see it in action, we hear noises, and the wife catches him. Dylan McDermott plays a cool doctor, and Connie Britton plays a lovely wife, and the two have an interest dynamic. Britton is hot, she’s absolutely a lady that I’d like to say what’s up to, and most likely get rejected by. Dylan is ripped in this role, and well the rest is quite interesting too. Jessica Lange plays an interesting role, and is looking well for her age.

The show doesn’t start with that plot, it starts with a haunted house which I couldn’t stop thinking about after I saw it. I make a lot of Amityville Horror jokes in the home, always talking about how I want to make a cookie cutter of the home, so that I can eat the house on a regular basis. This haunted house slays a couple of idiot kids for entering an abandoned area. They are warned not to go forward, but they go anyways and meet up with disaster.

The family after going through a crisis of infidelity move to my neck of the woods, Los Angeles and start over, in the same house the children were murdered inside of. From there strange things start to happen, and lead to a very sexy and lovely gimp sex scene with Connie Britton…hubba hubba…right right? Never mind.

This first episode most certainly sets a mean tone, with lots of points of interesting dialogue, emotion, and sexual tension. There’s a ghost story running rampant, a kleptomaniac neighbor, an autistic child, a suicidal teenager, a cutter, a milf, and a doctor that has the hots for the maid…which switches between old and young…oh god, I love the outfit.

American Horror Story Season 1 Episode 1 does a good job of keeping you entertained, and you immediately want to watch the next episode and find out what really is going on in the house. I suspect death, but who knows.

Stephen King on Kindle

Here at Scary Film Review, I spend a lot of time talking about horror movies. I also talk about video games, and television shows from time to time, but recently I’ve started to read a little more into the genre of the horror novel. Maybe it’s because I just finished an outline for my first fictional horror book, or maybe it’s just that I need to unwind a little after writing so many words per day. One horror writer that you’re never going to run away from is going to be obvious to you. With the advent of digital books and media, you’ll often find people ditching the dictionary sized paperbacks, and hardcovers for Stephen King on Kindle.

The master of horror writes a lot, and that’s an understatement. If you’re looking to get some of his work on your e-reader, consider my list of must own books from Stephen King on Kindle.



The Shining by Stephen King – Forget what you’ve seen on film, forget what you think you know, and forget the story that you saw parodied on the Simpsons, this is the book that I’m told will scare you to death. A fascinating journey into desperation is found here and the page count is much easier to manage in digital format.



11/22/63 by Stephen King – What would happen if you could go back in time and prevent a tragedy? One man tries in this time travel book of historical proportions! If you want hours and hours of material, here are 866 pages of storytelling for you to sink your teeth into.



Salem’s Lot by Stephen King – Vampires and the King of horror? (No pun intended) This is a story that is deep with symbolism and it doesn’t take an English major to see the many layers that get peeled away for you to explore. If you haven’t read it, or you aren’t sure, then at least consider that Eminem created a simile in a song about his life about this book. So if it’s good enough for a #1 song, it’s good enough for you to read.

If you’re looking for some reading, and you want to get scared or you simply enjoy the rich tapestry and rambling that the most prolific horror novelist creates, I recommend the aforementioned Stephen King on kindle selections. If you haven’t purchased the device and you are going to be doing so, click here to purchase the device and get yourself some books while you’re at it.

Open House Review


I love a good movie poster, especially those that can be doubled as porno movie posters. I grew up in a time where video stores weren’t corporate at all. The Asian people in my neighborhood owned them and they would actually put up awesome horror movie posters in the horror section. With that in mind, I was able to watch this classic 1980s slasher flick of epic proportions called Open House.

The plot of this movie is a lot like a Dario Argento Gialo mystery horror film. The movie features a great deal of mystery and you only see the weapon, the killing, and the aftermath as you roll through the movie. The villain isn’t exposed and nothing is explained until the end. As the story goes, a radio disc jockey and a real estate agent are embroiled in a situation where people are getting killed inside vacant homes for sale. When a red herring appears not to be the culprit, the killer sets his eyes on the disc jockey’s girlfriend, who just happens to be a real estate agent!

The movie is funny at moments, but gets really serious at times as well. The movie is set up exactly as you would expect from a slasher movie of the time, and it picks up in the final moments, only to get the same tone as Rambo! The ending is just odd, and the villain doesn’t appear to be as smart as he does in the rest of the movie.

For fans of gratuitous nudity, there is an awesome 1980s style nude scene at one point that just goes to show that the bodies of yesteryear were just so much more natural than what you see today. I think I went through puberty again at one point, but I’ll digress.

The movie isn’t particularly good, it doesn’t have a lot to remember other than the classic Argento style, but I really wanted to just see an Italian horror film and not this thing. You’re not missing much here, except for the cool poster.

Open House is not worth your time, unless you’re like me, and you have to see all things horror movies.

Coffin Rock Review


I remember when Wolf Creek came out, I fell asleep, and don’t remember much of the elements of it. The producer of that film was the main draw for me on this one, as it seemed pretty cool. That being said, today we will look into the film Coffin Creek, as it is an interesting tale of lurid acts, consequences, and horror. Even though it’s not listed as straightforward horror, it’s still got enough elements to scare people into thinking twice about indiscretions.

The plot of the film revolves around a couple in Australia trying to conceive. Apparently there is something wrong, as is the case with many older couples trying to have children. My version of this movie would have lasted about 10 minutes, because I would have mentioned adoption. But I’ll digress, the couple is trying to have a child but they aren’t having such a good time with it. After trying to no avail, the main character has sex with a drifter in a drunken mistake, and that sets into motion a major catastrophe.

The drifter starts to become a part of the couples life, and when it turns out that the wife is pregnant, our now stalker believes it’s his child. This sets into motion a series of events that involves all sorts of insanity, including the death of a baby kangaroo, setting a man on fire, running someone over, getting dumped off a cliff and some more gruesome points.

The movie is an exercise in futility when the end showcases a twist that I saw coming a mile away. In a way the movie reminded me of the Richard Gere movie “Unfaithful”. While that movie seemed to work in a way, this one seemed to lack that certain sexuality that it needs to fully come to a climax. (No pun intended)

The movie dragged at one point and it just seemed to play to the development of an anti-hero, but that too never came to full fruition. When the final act starts, things start to move fast, with a certain level of emotional pacing that made me like how it all turned out, but even that doesn’t save this film from being one of the movies that I wouldn’t necessarily recommend to everyone. It is a much better movie than some of the other films with similar stories, mainly because of the drifter’s psychosis. However, it’s not that memorable, with exception of the final act, which featured some cool spots. Coffin Rock is a cool movie if you have a couple of hours to kill, but you don’t need to own it.

Top 5 Hardcore Revenge Horror Films

When it comes to certain genres of horror films, many people start to question their validity as pure entertainment. For instance, many people can’t stomach certain scenes in cinema that depict sexual situations that are of a “forced” nature. To put it bluntly, rape. There is nothing entertaining about that in the real world, yet the horror genre likes to put a spin on it, allowing viewers to see the atrocity in full view then come back with a punch to the balls of anyone that found it funny or even remotely entertaining. How do they do it? Simple. They introduce a revenge plot in which the raped woman or male in certain instances gets full revenge in the most cartoonish of ways, or in some cases the most atrocious of ways.

When thinking about hardcore revenge horror films, 5 stand out as some of the best and worst in many different ways. That’s why today we will be briefly spotlighting 5 of those movies that made me cringe or at least open my eyes wider as revenge is a dish best served piping hot full of shi……never mind.



#5 I Spit On Your Grave (1978) – This controversial movie came out with a brutal premise, but it doesn’t just go from bad times to bad times, there’s a reversal of roles and no sin is left unpunished. Well, unless you count the sin of low budget cinema and production flaws, but it was 1978, a different era in movie making, right? Anyways, this movie was remade, but lacked the substance and style of this original. If you are into genital mutilation revenge plots ala “Ricco The Mean Machine” then you have to look at t his one as one of the best examples of revenge!



#4 Last House on the Left (1972) – What was it with the 70s? Some of the most violent and disturbing images came out throughout those damn hippy years! Whatever the case is, Wes Craven proved to shock the movie world with a revenge kidnapping plot that had some more, well genital mutilation. This one is still worth checking out after all these years. Once again the remake doesn’t hold a candle to the original.



#3 Last House on the Beach (1978) – Eurotrash fans will love this classic tale that turns into a swift revenge plot. Teenage girls alone at a beach house are brutally messed up by thugs, and when one of the girls is skilled, our main heroine decides enough is enough and it’s time to get REVENGE!



#2 Northville Cemetery Massacre (1976) – Touted as one of the ultimate biker flicks of all time, this movie features a mix of all things exploitation film and all things revenge. You get a sense for violence where there are no heroes, and when the law rapes a young woman, it’s the lawless that have to man up and lay down, well….the LAW!



#1 Thriller: A Cruel Picture (1973) – This is the ultimate of all of the revenge films you’re going to see in regards to the premise of hardcore. This one takes the cake in a lot of ways. If you get the unrated version, this movie turns into a XXX romp; with a slow motion pop shot that is not only disturbing, but also very stimulating for those that like to see that sort of thing. One girl, one eye, one shotgun, and that’s all you need to know!

If you like revenge films, these are your #1 stunners, and they are definitely worth purchasing for your collection. If you’re going to buy anything from amazon, please click here to visit there and bookmark the page. It helps me keep writing about this stuff and it costs you nothing extra. Thank you.

5 Horror Movie Reviews You Missed

I’ve been hard at work writing this website for about 5 years now. It has lasted longer than most of my other attempts at writing on the web, with the exception of my WWE review website that I still have up and update from time to time. My love for horror movies started a young age and through my years I have made sure to write commentary, reviews, and all sorts of things online about them.

Since today I didn’t have time to review a full movie, I decided to talk about 5 horror movie reviews that you’re missing out on. With 750+ reviews done on this site, it can be a daunting task to read everything that I have posted. In order to compensate for that, here is a quick 5 horror movie reviews that you’re missing out on that you might want to look into.

Jack Frost dvd

#5 Jack Frost Review – It’s that time again for the wintertime, and you better believe I did reviews on a variety of holiday horror movies. I did it two years in a row looking for only that type of movie to talk about. Jack Frost is one of the better ones that I found, but that’s not saying a whole lot.



#4 LIfeforce – Today you can get this movie in a variety of different ways, but when I first wrote about it, that movie was hard to find and wasn’t going to be easy to get a hold of. Now, you can even find it through Netflix. Oh well, the review was up and is up rather, and my writing suffers when I am tired.

Chaos 2005

#3 Chaos (2005) – This rare out of print movie is the hardest movie I’ve ever seen at the time. However, a Serbian Film tips the scales because that movie is just pure evil. This one though, is hard to watch on a variety of levels. It’s probably one of the hardest non-pornographic movies I’ve seen ever.

Basket Case 3

#2 Basket Case 3 – I’m one of the few bloggers that wrote about this out of print movie long ago. I’m sure it’s now in print, but I remember having a poster on my wall of this film in High School, and always loved the premise of having a Siamese twin in a BASKET! This one is outlandish, and reminds me of a better time in horror movie history.

dt

#1 Death Note – An under-appreciated film that really didn't live up to the hype, but maybe I should give it a second chance...I don't know.

Click through those 5 reviews from the past, and remember leave a comment anywhere and you can win The Walking Dead Season 1 and 2 on Blu Ray.

One last thing, if you’re gong to shop on Amazon.com please click here to visit that site and support the writing, blogging and career of yours truly. At the time of this writing I do nothing else but write for a living. I would prefer not to go back to the 9 to 5 world, but might have to if I can’t make these things work. So if you are going to shop at amazon click here, or visit the Best Horror Movie site here. Thank you.

The Best Horror Movies in 3D

The third dimension, that place that allows you to jump into the movies and be a part of the action, at least if your eyes don’t automatically correct everything you’re watching. I wear glasses, so every time I see a 3D movie, I end up seeing things from a 2D perspective. Damn you genes! Oh and damn you jeans! I like Dickies, but that’s neither here nor there, or underwear! SCORE!

Sorry.

The Best Horror Movies in 3D definitely has a lot of people arguing, and if you search the online world, you’ll find all sorts of opinions on the matter. I find that my top 5 list that will be found here will also bring about a lot of arguments. But let’s be civil and see what my personal pick of the best 5 horror movies in 3D are! (Make sure to comment if you want to win the prize this month)

#5 – Friday the 13th Part 3 in 3D



One year before I was born the people that made Jason a household name though that they could top the box office records set by their slasher film by throwing logic out of the window and selling those nifty paper and plastic lenses (the red and blue ones, those were rad) and what ensued was a maddening entrance of horror and slasher glory! This is by far one of my (5th actually) favorite movies in 3D! You can tell things were done for “cheese” factor because if it weren’t, someone would’ve been fired.

#4 – Saw VII: The Final Saw 3D



I still think that they can do “Son of Saw” or something, but whatever. The seventh film in the series, and the seventh movie that I plopped $12 to go see was done in 3D and I for one enjoyed myself. I loved the way the guts and stuff flew through the camera while I was trying to cut a hole in my popcorn…err…I didn’t really do that. I am not that smooth, and I don’t even remember seeing this with anyone. Saw VII is one of those movies that you either love or hate, and I for one didn’t hate it.

#3 – Amityville 3D



This movie came out and blew open the doors of the third dimension and made me as fall asleep. It was a remake that really wasn’t half bad, and even though I feel that the whole Amityville thing is overrated, they most certainly created a pretty cool landscape worth checking out again and again.

#2 – House of Wax 3D



It was the 1950s and while many chicks and dudes were making out in the backseat of their fancy cars, I’d like to think that there were some brave people watching House of Wax in 3D! Yep, this is a pretty cool upgrade to the original film, and it featured that classic Vincent Price take on horror. I might have said he was overrated in the past, but it’s pretty cool to see how this was part of the 3D horror landscape. It still holds up pretty well, and the music, well that’s the key to the thrills, right? Right?

#1 – Freddy’s Dead: The Final Nightmare



I was 8 years old when this movie came out and was excited! My dad took me to see this awesome 3D movie and I bought into the whole 3D thing wearing my glasses through the whole thing. Even though the movie wasn’t amazing, it still had enough gusto to make my 8-year-old heart skip a beat here and there. It holds up ok, and the Iggy Pop song is still cool overall.

There you have it, my top 5 best 3D Horror Movies, what do you think? Leave me a comment and you could win The Walking Dead Season 1 & 2 on Blu Ray. Oh and please shop on amazon.com here, it will help me stay away from working a 9 to 5 and get more prizes for the months to come!

The Twilight Zone Complete Series Blu Ray box set is one of the best gifts that you can give a horror fan for any occasion. Not only do you get every episode in high definition glory, you don’t have to wait for those pesky commercials to get in the way. My biggest gripe with the marathons that are shown on television each holiday season is the fact that they edit the show down to fit in as many commercials as possible. Not only that, some of the episodes are skipped, the order is jumbled, and the scenes are deleted. The reason being is because of time constraints, and that’s fair, but here in this edition you get it all and then some.

The first thing that you’ll notice here is the transfer. The transfer of each episode was carefully done to showcase the true power of the hi-def display, and it comes through with shining glorious clarity. The show, videos, and all visuals look stunning and truly are worth the asking price.

When you purchase The Twilight Zone Complete Series Blu Ray box set you will also get a bonus documentary entitled “Rod Serling: Submitted For Your Approval”, which is something that many collectors had previously had to fight to get on eBay an other sites.

The extra features are done right with this set, so you know you’re getting quality. Some of the features that come inside this set include audio commentaries, radio dramas from the original radio broadcasts, video interviews, conversations with Rod Serling, highlights from the seminar featured at the Museum of Television and Radio, isolated music scores, Twilight Zone ads, stills, blooper reel, Saturday Night Live clip, Twilight Zone comic book, and a complete script for twenty-two of the shows with handwritten notes from Serling!

I’ve purchased a lot of box sets in my day, and most of them have isolated features and extras, but this one is really worth checking out, especially for all the episodes that you’ve seen in your past. Never before has the whole show been transferred in such glory, which makes it a perfect example for other studios to follow when releasing sets.

If you have a fan of science fiction, horror, or just television in general, you owe it to yourself to pick up The Twilight Zone Complete Series Blu Ray box set.

Die Review


I’ve seen a lot of movies that copy others. Look through the archives of Scary Film Review and you will see a great deal of movies that I have watched and talked about that are completely ripped off from another famous or infamous movie. When I first read the premise for “DIE” I figured it was another clone of the “SAW” series, and while it pretty much is, there is a little bit of gusto to think about that will make you think a little.

The first thing that I noticed about the movie was the way they shot the main villain; he played and talked in the same manner that Bruce Wayne would talk. If you mixed the Dark Knight and Saw you would get this villain named Jacob. He speaks as though he’s doing something noble, but in reality he’s making another stab at The League of Shadows, only this is far more gruesome.

We are presented with a story about salvation, but it’s not what you might think. Six people show up in a dark warehouse and are wondering what is going on. They each have to roll a dice in order to see whether or not the other person will die. After going back and forth between different people, there are only a couple of people left to kill off before the villain reveals the purpose of this entrapment. Meanwhile, there is a rogue detective on the hunt, trying to figure out what is going on, who is kidnapping people and whether or not they are still alive.

The movie does a lot of things well, especially setting up a believable type of cult scenario. Jacob is by all intents and purposes a better villain than Jacob, and the “Jesus” salvation complex and visuals definitely plays to the favor of the movie. There was a bit of a slowdown in the middle of the movie, but after that, this thing truly went off the rails.

The visuals are nice, not too gorey, and there are sequences that were lifted directly from the Batman movies. You switch characters in here to match up the latter and it would be just fine. I found that to be the most compelling thing about this movie, which really plays like a made for television mini-series more than a full fledged film.

DIE is not a great movie, but it’s adequate and does the work that the SAW sequels didn’t get done in 5 tries. I liked it enough to recommend it, so make sure that you check it out. If you want a movie that mixes genres, this is definitely worth checking out. If you miss it, you’re not going to kick yourself, but if you’re a horror fan, you have to check it out. It’s another piece to the puzzle of watching all things scary movie. Hey, if I could sit through it, you probably can too, so check it out today.


The Walking Dead Spoilers


The Walking Dead television series is one of the best things I’ve seen on television in a long time. However, did you know that the whole series has already been written? Ok, so not every aspect is the same, but after talking to several different fans of the show, they have said that the comic books are better than the stories that you see on television because they are far ahead of what you see on the screen. Essentially, if you buy The Walking Dead Compendium here, you will have all the spoilers that you could possibly want from the show.

When you check out the first compendium, you will be getting the first 48 issues of the hit series in comic book form. It’s not adapted from the show; this is the original stories that MADE THE SHOW! If you want to see how things compare to the television version, you’ll want to check this out.

Right now, if you order The Walking Dead Compendium here, you will get a massive volume with 1,088 pages of non-stop action for nearly half off! No joke. If you are a fan of zombies, movies, and scary film, this is for you. I don’t usually recommend getting comic book volumes because they can cost you a lot for only a hundred or so pages, but this has no ads, and is over 1,000 pages!

The best thing about this is that if you purchase the book, you can knock someone out because it weighs a ton. The Walking Dead series is definitely going to go down in history as one of the best examples of horror on the small screen, and it all started with this series of comic books. This award winning series continues today, and if you haven’t invested into it, the time is now.

If you’re going to shop online for a comic book fan, yourself, or you just want to look around Amazon online, go ahead and look at The Walking Dead Compendium here, and see if it is something that you want to pick up. I own it, and it’s definitely far more compelling at times than the live action series. Check it out, and help support this blog.

Buffy The Vampire Slayer Complete Box Set


If you’re a serious fan of Buffy, then you already own all the sets of this series and you’ve watched them several times, however, there are some of you that have held out on getting the series for yourself or a loved one for quite sometime. Well, the time is now to check out Buffy The Vampire Slayer Complete Box Set, which is available for nearly ½ off if you click here. This complete setup completes everything, and you get everything you could get from the show in one easy box set of epic proportions. (Terrible language, I know)

If you haven’t seen the show, or maybe just a few episodes, you should know that this show is definitely one of the great ones. What sets it apart from many others is the individual show scripts which go through several arcs that don’t really intertwine right away but get you hooked none the less. The casual viewer will definitely like some of the emotional stuff with a teenager subplot that seems to go through the same angst as you probably come to expect from a series that features, well, a teenager. However, there are moments where you realize that there’s something far more sinister going on, and when that opens up, you start to recognize why so many fans of this show have been diehard since day one.

When you purchase Buffy the Vampire Slayer Complete Box Set, you are not just investing in another television show that will sit on your shelf unwatched, you’re getting one of the most engaging horror television shows of all time. The show definitely transcends the moniker of being about a girl with super human abilities and starts to really charter a course through seven seasons of something more compelling than just your average angst fueled drama.

If you are a fan of the X-Files or any other kind of science fiction, or horror anthology, you’ll want to check this out because it most certainly has a large story, many seasons, and all the elements that you would expect from a vampire type narrative, without the glimmer and stupidity that is attributed to things like Twilight. You most certainly can’t go wrong with this set, especially if you’re planning on getting it for yourself or someone you know. Pick up Buffy The Vampire Slayer complete series here, and help make someone smile with ease.

The Dentist Review


Ah yes, the most hated medical profession outside of being a Proctologist, has to be this one, The Dentist. In this review, I will be talking about that and wonder a few things that I have experienced in my life and some things you might want to chime in about, all in all a good time. So sit back, grab a stiff drink (I like Gin & Tonic), and enjoy the ramblings of your host with the most, Sir J.

The Dentist is a movie that I’ve seen before, but haven’t in a long time, so I had to watch it again in order to remind myself of how cool Corbin is. It stars Corbin Bernsen, one of my personal favorite actors in a role that is quite maddening in many ways. A well to do doctor is having problems with his marriage (and no, it’s not that he’s not going down…er….never mind), and one day catches his wife and the pool guy getting some action. He gets mad, so mad that he goes forward to grab his gun and hunts down the pool guy at a friends house, when he is caught by a friend of his wife. They exchange pleasantries before he finds out that the pool guy is banging her too! Now, don’t get me wrong, this is in no way a porno, but I swear I saw a pornographic movie start this way, but then again, I just remember a pool house in the Asia Carrera movie “The Bitch” in where…er…once again never mind.

The plot of the movie becomes a revenge thing, where our antihero goes nuts in his dental practice and starts hurting his patients. As he slips more and more into madness and molests one of the women that comes to get a cleaning, he starts to kill them off in the most ridiculous of dental ways. As the film progresses he eventually is caught, and this morality play ends with him in a very uncomfortable position.

Corbin Bernsen rocks this one, slipping in and out of madness as the evil dental professional, and at times you are rooting for him. At other times, you’re disgusted by the makeup effects that are used to make the kills and thrills more gorey. One major prosthetic is amazing, however, with a man’s mouth opened at full mast and his teeth and tongue exaggerated for the camera.

The revenge plot thing works well here, and the movie is fast paced. On one side you want to root for him, because that good for nothing pool man is getting it on with all the wives. Then again, he shouldn’t kill, he should just get a divorce right? Or maybe he should get revenge somehow, that doesn’t involve killing? Who knows, it’s a standard horror piece with above average nudity and comedic timing that may or may not be intentional. I recommend The Dentist, it made me laugh, it made me cry, it made get wood….er never mind.

The Best Horror Novels of 2012

When I was doing a search for the best horror novels of 2012, I didn’t find a lot of lists out there on the subject. So to satisfy my own curiosity I put together a list based on a number of criteria that should point you towards reading the best of this year. These 3 books are the best I could find, but if you have better ideas, or you simply want to search on your own, do so by clicking here.



This Book is Full of Spiders: Seriously, Dude, Don’t Touch it By David Wong – Now that he’s getting a lot of publicity for the movie that is to come “John Dies in the End” this sequel of sorts should get you to start reading horror fiction once again. The cover alone is worth looking at, but it’s what lurks inside that should captivate your imagination, and soul! Get it today by clicking here.





14 by Peter Clines – One of the most interesting ideas to put on paper, a strange apartment, mutant cockroaches, and life that just seems unfair, and that’s just the beginning of t his interesting book that will have you scared to ever live alone in the dumps of Los Angeles’s less than attractive areas. 14 by Peter Clines comes highly recommended, and you can purchase it here.



Penpal by Dathan Auerbach – A horror novel that was originally posted in excerpts online through reddit and other online forums, is the basis for this interesting story that caught most people off guard. Ready to get blown away by creative horror narrative? Here’s your shot at something new and worthwhile. I’ll keep the plot a mystery because you’re going to want to go in fresh. Purchase it here.

Coma (2012) Review


I’m always excited to see new horror novels, and then I realized that what I thought was new is really old. That’s why I was shocked to learn that this series is a rehash or update of the original movie that was based on a 1977 book by Robin Cook. This horror story is one that is poignant, and very timely, and all in the same breath scary. This four hour drama really is condensed into around 2 ½ hours or so if you catch it on blu ray or through streaming of some kind. Coma is one of the slickest mini-series adaptations that I can remember in recent times. Far better than the last one I reviewed on this site, “The Langoliers”.

The series starts out as a medical drama, a young graduate student is starting her first rounds in a hospital and everything seems normal. However, after a flurry of patients start to dip into mysterious comas, she is alerted about what is really going on. As she starts to investigate, she starts to find out information that the hospital higher ups don’t want her to know. Meanwhile, a blossoming romance starts between a rogue surgeon and the coed, and then this series takes a wild turn into the unreal before leaving the plot hanging in the midpoint.

This very much felt like a made for television production, however, the tense moments between each interval point forward made for some very suspenseful and scary tie ins to real life. You see, the story becomes not so far fetched when you understand the underbelly of what’s going on. Government cover ups, medical science, comas, and all sorts of little details go into making this one of the more brutal ideas of medical studies gone wrong. Yet, it seems to be almost possible, it really does tow the line really close for comfort; especially with the way the characters react to certain developments.

Coma goes into full throttle in the latter stages, and if you’ve developed any care for the characters you start to panic when the twist reveals more than just a hospital trying to harvest, but also a psychopath willing to kill for his freedom, and then throw in a psychopathic drug trip and you have all the makings for one of the cooler developments in mini-series history than “Who Shot JR”. Ok, I had to do it, but it’s better than a giant spider in a cave, right? Right?

I honestly recommend Coma (2012) as a scary series, and am looking forward to purchasing the novel by Robin Cook. For those that aren’t familiar with his work, he’s a neurosurgeon and medical doctor that has parlayed a lot of his experience into some of the most poignant horror medical novels and thrillers ever created. He seems to be on top of things, and well, this movie made me think twice about getting my knee fixed, that’s for sure. Check out this series and drop me a comment and let me know if you liked it.

9 Dead Review


Picking up yet another independent horror movie, I found another interesting piece with some interesting moments. While this movie was not the greatest ever, it did feature some quality moments, which made the genre that was started by the Saw sequels urgent and somewhat entertaining. 9 Dead is a movie that features all the best in horror and all the worst in horror all at the same time. You can call it whatever you want to call it, but this movie has an entertainment quality that reminds fans why they like the genre to begin with.

9 Dead is a movie that features a group of people that are put together in a room and should know why they are there. A sadistic killer is there and he’s asking them to figure out why, and as they go through the motions of trying to figure it out, complications arise and each one is killed off one, by one. As the movie progresses their intertwining stories start to come out and the puzzle pieces start to fit quite nicely over layers of flashbacks.

Melissa Joan Hart stars in this movie and she is out of place for the most part, she can’t carry the load of being in despair, although it is something that she tries really hard to convey overall. I found that her performance really pushed me far away from what I feel would’ve been a good overall horror movie. Her performance isn’t the only lackluster one, however you have to look past those things.

9 Dead has its moments, but it’s not going to be on any top 10 lists at all. The movie really falls flat in the end, and the way things are left just screams for something more. The movie passes through the motions that you’d expect from a thriller and right when you think that Jigsaw will appear, the credits roll and leaves you with a half a chub and a smartphone looking for Clarissa Explains it All on dvd. This is one that you’ll want to check out, but won’t necessarily be favorite by anyone outside of diehard horror fans. I liked it, but didn’t think it was the best of the “saw” clones.

Midnight Movie Review


Ever since I decided to end my relationship with Time Warner Cable and go without cable, I’ve been able to watch far more movies than I can shake a fist at. This movie has been on the shelf for a while, and I only heard about it being available on dvd recently. It first came out in 2008 and it has been ignored by most idiots, like myself, until now. Midnight Movie is an interesting mix of genres and truly delivers on a variety of fronts, including the end.

The movie stars out with a bang, it features a psyche ward and a crazy person being allowed to watch their own movie. When this happens, he disappears and goes into his film and on a rampage….four years later. We catch up with a midnight movie being shown in a small town, and the viewers end up being part of the show, whether they want to or not.

A great deal of genres are mixed in this movie, with the primary one being slasher. There is a killer gutting people and taking them from the real world into the film world. This is done with a cool looking drill piece that is shoved into the stomachs of victims. The main killer seems to just want to kill for the sake of it, until he’s knocked out cold and killed, but then we get to see a second party, and a revival that is quite good.

The movie is a nice paced film that tries hard to make things good on a one million dollar budget. The acting is ok, the cinematography is good, and the music is a good mix of instrumental and rock music. I found that the gore effects were done nicely and effective as well. In fact, I found a lot of things to love in this one, and when the revealing twist happens, I was cheering.

Midnight Movie is a good slasher hybrid with good effects, funny moments, and twists that you may see coming a mile away, but still want to see play out. The ending is bleak, but I won’t spoil it for you. As far as independent horror is concerned, this is one that entertains and delivers a hefty punch. I was surprised yet again at another indie horror film capturing the imagination and ethos of the 1980s with style and lots of substance. Sure there are some downsides, but they are easily overlooked for an impressive film that breaks taboos and pays homage even if it might be inadvertent.

Favorite Midnight Movies

The clock strikes midnight, you’re wide awake and you don’t know what to watch. You decide on the genre of horror, but what will you watch at such a late hour? You brew some coffee and mull over the decision and that’s when you decide to check out your favorite horror movie review blog, and you look for something that will be good around midnight.

Well, if you’ve found this post and you’re looking for Scary Film’s favorite midnight horror movies, then you will be glad to know I’ve got you covered. Here are 3 of my personal favorites to watch around midnight and the likes. Pick them up via amazon.com here, or click the links to help support this blog.

My 3 Favorite Midnight Horror Movies



The Shining Blu Ray – When it comes to adapting Stephen King’s work, you really have a lot of work on your hands. He writes like it’s going out of style and continues to fill pages and pages with writing. He probably writes about as much as I do, the only difference is he makes millions and I’m lucky if I can make this month’s rent. (Seriously, help me out please) He didn’t like the adaptation of his novel, but I sure as hell do. Kubrick took a lengthy novel and made something so killer that if you’re up at midnight, you will enjoy. Get it on blu ray and put on the surround sound, and get ready to enjoy a thrilling horror picture of epic proportions. I for one love it.



Silent Night, Deadly Night – Ever since I was a child, I have loved this movie. Sure, it’s brash and it bastardizes the Santa Claus role, but so what? This movie is awesome. It has something for everyone including sex, violence, and nuns! If you’ve been bad, then watch this movie and keep being naughty!



Cabin Fever Blu Ray – I love Rider Strong. I love him as the sidekick in Boy Meets World and I love him in this movie. He plays “Paul” and makes it to the end of a movie where no one should survive. This movie is Eli Roth’s first film out of school and he truly made a classic. I absolutely love it, and feel that it’s underappreciated in todays gore filled marketplace.

The aforementioned are going to get you back to sleep after waking up in a cold sweat at midnight. If you haven’t already done so, check them out on blu ray and dvd. Click the links, help me out, or simply go back to bed and enjoy a dream or whatever.

DIEner Review


I’m not a big fan of zombie movies; I just get bored of it after a while. Even though I enjoy certain programs and movies in the genre, it’s one of those things that have been done to death, much like Vampires. While I can watch a decent movie about it, I am often times bored by the way it’s presented. That’s not the case, however, for this movie DIEner…get it? Which came out in 2009. This movie clocks in around 1 hour and 20 minutes and is not a compelling piece but offers some good overall action.

The movie’s plot revolves around a drifter that is killing people in a very small town. When the people he has killed start coming back to life, he commissions a couple to help him thwart an invasion, but that doesn’t prove to be possible. The zombies come through a diner and start to eat their way through any living thing that is in the area.

This movie is an example of what a low budget and a cool idea can do. I found it to be an interesting take on the whole Zombie thing, but there was no real explanation as to why things were going the way they were. I found moments to be laboriously done, and the pacing slows down before it ramps up to a full frenzy in the end.

When the movie is over, you truly feel like you just saw a made for tv special that only last’s an hour. Cut up, this would be a good 1-hour presentation on the SyFY channel. It most certainly needs another 45 minutes to get really good, but then again, maybe it’s not that great. DIEner…Get It? Is available now, but I’m not sure if anyone will buy it.

3 Indie Horror Gems To Watch Again

When it comes to independent film making, the horror genre is one of the most packed. People love making horror films for a variety of reasons, and they excel in many ways. Some of the studios in recent memory have invested heavily in independent horror to the fact that some were paying upwards of six figures per film to release the dvd. I saw many of these classics while working at a video store in Los Angeles.

Although now I write for a living, I sometimes wish I could go back and be a video store clerk. I feel like I was made for that type of job, but alas, it’s time to look at different things.

Here are 3 indie horror gems to watch again. Click on the links and buy them online to help this blog continue to move forward.



Feast – There are monsters outside of a small town bar and a group of people is trapped. Sounds like a cliché right? It kind of is, until you start to unfold what lurks outside of the doors and you get showered in blood. There are some awesome characters found here, and you’ll love the way things play out in this gorey independent horror film.



Wrong Turn 2 – The sequel to the box office hit is one of 5 sequels that have come through dvd and bluray. This is a good one only because Henry Rollins is in it and he’s BADASS to the very end. If you want gore, and horror mixed with that great sarcasm that can only come from Henry Rollins, then you owe it to yourself to check out Wrong Turn 2 again.



Serum – This independent film is a gem that was shot on HD cameras but made straight to dvd. The movie is a standard monster type film where a doctor discovers an interesting ride through what can happen medically when money is on the line. I didn’t sell that well at all… it’s a cool “cure all” movie with dire consequences.

As per usual, I beseech everyone to pick these up on dvd or streaming services online, they are instant independent film classics.

Dead Tone Review


Well, my goal of writing only werewolf movie reviews really tanked this month, and with that in mind I decided to throw in the towel and just start reviewing again. I managed to watch a cool slasher film that most people didn’t see for a few years until it was purchased by the people that were producing the Flavor Flav horror anthology television series for BET and thus we get this movie called Dead Tone.

I read some criticisms about how this movie was a rip off of “Scream” but when you get to the meat of the movie you start to realize that this stands all on its own with great prowess. The plot involves a prank call gone awry. A few kids are calling people and making them panic, and if they can reach 75 seconds on the call, they are declared a winner. The opening is very hard to watch, especially since many taboos are broken in the horror genre. Just in the first 15 minutes, you get child killing, a strangling, and a lot of violence that you just don’t get with a lot of other horror films today. Granted, this movie was made in 2005, and then released in 2007, so it’s not like a brand new one, but it definitely earns the R rating with how brutal the opening is.

The movie progresses nicely, setting up the twists that are to come and in predictable fashion the children are college students when we pick up the story. They are headed to a remote house where they can party and once again play the game of prank calls. It’s there that they run into the same villain that terrorized them as children, only this time they are going to get hacked!

The movie turns from dramatic thriller to serious slasher with a faceless villain smarter than the kids he’s chasing. You get all the gore you want here, and if you blink you’ll miss some cool sequences of death. The movie continues like this through the third act, right before it hits the climax in which we see who the villain really is, and a twist that my girlfriend even didn’t see coming!

By the time a rogue detective gets to the crime scene, we already get more twists than a pretzel. That’s terrible, I’m sorry.

Dead Tone is a refreshing slasher movie that had me guessing until the very end. I appreciated that this didn’t take itself too seriously, and delivered a good romp of horror fun. I really enjoyed this one and highly recommend it for those that are looking for a hidden gem amongst the bargain bin movies at your local video store. Do they exist any longer? Man, remember the porn sections that were blocked by red ropes or something like that? Nevermind. Check this movie out and look for a brief cameo in the start by FLAVOR FLAV!

3 Cool Euro Trash Blu Ray Discs To Buy

When it comes to European trash movies, I’m a big fan. Whether it’s exploring the evil and satanic nuns of Italian and Spanish fame, or I’m knee deep in the rape-revenge flicks that sliced in pornographic scenes with femme fatales that would put shotguns in the mouths of their oppressors, I love the genres that came out of this era of exploitation cinema.

Today, I wanted to veer into some of my favorites and just recommend that you please help this blog by checking them out, purchasing them, or at least helping me out by going to amazon.com here, and picking up whatever you’d like. I’m 100% freelance and write for a living, so I’m not making billions, and need your help.

Here are 3 cool Eurotrash Blu Ray discs to purchase today:



Baron Blood Blu Ray – Mario Bava really turns up the scar tactics in this story about a Student abroad trying to learn about his family. This movie plays on the sadist ideologies that seemed to run rampant in the exploitation genre, but you’ll find that it’s not exactly gore filled, despite an awesome disc cover. Pre-order this one at a major savings.



Amer Blu Ray – One of the most interesting and beautiful pieces of giallo cinema is found in this 1970s Italian euro trash picture. It might be mislabeled but when you get to the eroticism that is presented here, you’ll understand why even a high definition transfer doesn’t change the notion. You’ll find the transfer to be one of the best reasons to own a blu ray player today.



Living Dead Girl Blu Ray – This French film ties together the hysterics of toxic waste and earthquakes into a terrifying tale about when zombies rise from the grave to feed on the flesh and blood of humans. This transfer is amazing, and you get an awesome amount of features to go with the bloodlust that is sure to entice even the most jaded of horror movie fans.

Werewolf Hunter Review


When it comes to finding good movies, I tend to judge the cover. I know, they always say not to, but I can’t help it. I’ve found some of my favorite movies and books have the coolest covers ever. Maybe it’s because I’m a graphic designer (bachelor’s degree), or maybe it’s because I’m a man and visual stimulation comes naturally to me in some way, I just absolutely love cover art. When I saw the cover art for Werewolf Hunter, I was definitely intrigued and thought it would be a good overall flick. What ended up turning out was a moderately successful werewolf movie that left me wanting something else. The movie is a Spanish one that was originally titled Romansanta, but for this review it’s called Werewolf Hunter, the proper name.

The movie is an interesting one, it is based on true events, and it’s not completely implausible. The plot revolves around a man that seduces women and then eats them. He then takes their fat and makes soap. When many women start disappearing a small town starts a hunt for all wolves, thinking it’s merely a wolf that is doing the damage. After some time, we are introduced to a hunter that claims he has been turned into a wolf and now must hunt his nemesis in order to once again become a man. The whole thing is tied up to a folklore tale of a man that claimed he killed many people but wasn’t to blame, because he was a werewolf.

The plot moves slowly, although there are some nice visuals. You get a sense for the time and place, with great costumes and beautiful women. Yes, there is nudity, so score one for those looking for a little Spanish boob action. Other than that, the movie feels like a Shakespearean play, as there is high drama throughout the film. By the time you get to the killing, it’s subdued and boring. There is a quick transformation scene that is kind of cool, but other than that, this felt like a made for television romp than anything else.

Werewolf Hunter is not a good movie, if you’re looking for horror. It’s a good piece of dramatic film making, but outside of that, it’s just not for scary film review fans or anyone that wants to have fun at the movies. I started to fall asleep towards the end, which is an awful sign. Not every movie can be a winner, but then again, my girlfriend liked it, so maybe it’s good for some, not for others. Wow, how awful are my reviews getting? I’ll have more reviews coming sooner than later.

Red: Werewolf Hunter Review


For today’s review I wanted to look at a little made for television movie about werewolves and boy did I find one that I didn’t hate, and was pleasantly surprised with. SyFy channel made this movie in 2010 and it starred some halfway decent acting mixed in with some interesting story telling elements and while it looked like it could be a straight to dvd feature, it still had elements worth noting that were far beyond the campy norm that usually plagues movies of this nature. Red: Werewolf Hunter takes the traditional route with horror, but there is enough to please just about anyone.

The movie revolves around the plot of Little Red Riding Hood, as she and her family are now hunters of werewolves. The first sequence of this film really hooked me. We get to see grandma get torn to pieces by a wolf, and while this moment was really harsh, it would not live up for the rest of the film, as this is the most violent scene you get without the aid of computer graphics. Grandma doesn’t live and through the floorboards of the attic a young Red watches on.

We are then moved forward to a new day, a new home and a couple visiting the woods to grandmother’s house. There we meet the werewolf hunters all in line with “Red” and there are some laughable moments in the introduction of each character, but you just live with it. The problem that plagues the family is a new breed of werewolf that can morph whenever they want, which means that outside of the full moon, the family will now have to fight.

When the fiancée of “Red” gets bitten, all hell breaks loose and the family has to fight the new villain. The villain named Gabriel is awesome, in my view, mixing elements of “Prison Break” with something a bit more macabre. If you don’t get behind the family of hunters, you will get behind this villain, as he owned the screen whenever he was on. Outside of that, the rest was just a bit bland.

The movie goes through the same elements that you would expect with any other horror film in this genre with people dying, the body count rising and the ultimate showdown between hunters and hunted. In the end, you get a favorable ending and that’s about it.

Red: Werewolf Hunter had some great moments. I liked the fighting for the most part, and did enjoy the movie more than I thought I would. I think SyFy is getting better with these pieces as the movie had a certain element of budget that is often times lacking. I didn’t like the graphics of the wolves, but I guess I can live with them. Overall, this wasn’t half bad, and would recommend it. It’s not great, by any means, but it’s far better than you’d expect.
