Film lover in general but horror is my favorite genre.

A personal favorite.
Every time I've rewatched this, I've bumped the rating slightly and I think it's time for the full 5 stars.
The Mutilator is a movie I liked a lot on VHS. When the DVD was impossible to find, I picked up a disc with a VHS rip at a convention. Then, when it came out in a cleaned up unrated version courtesy of Arrow Video, I fell even more in love with it.
It's the slasher film…
The Monster Squad is the epitome of cinematic comfort food for me. The kind of movie that you never tire of watching. One you can throw on when you’re not feeling well or can’t decide on something else to watch or just need something familiar. Watching it feels like spending time with an old friend you haven’t seen in a while. I first saw Monster Squad in the late 80s when I was 6 or 7 and I would credit it with fueling my interest in horror and leading me to seek out scarier, bloodier movies as I got older.
Dark Age's riff on the Alex Kintner scene from Jaws is absolutely fucking brutal. I love aquatic monster movies so my score may skew high here but it's a lot of fun and ranks up there with Alligator as one of the best alligator/crocodile movies.
I started watching a terrible copy of this online once and decided to wait until I could see a better version. I'm glad I did because the nighttime scenes that were barely visible in that copy look awesome on the Umbrella blu-ray.

I've always enjoyed the performances, funny dialogue and zaniness of it all but I don't think I've ever really considered how amazing it is as an adaptation. All the elements of the game are worked into the story including…
A fun 80s survival adventure from Don Coscarelli that features a great lead performance from Lance Henriksen and early roles for Catherine Keener and Dermot Mulroney. Henriksen leads a group into the wilderness for a survival adventure weekend that turns into a nightmare when a group of paramilitary survivalists begin hunting them. It's more of an adventure movie than a thriller as it focuses more on the wilderness survival aspects than the human threat and takes its time showing the…
After Psychos in Love, Gorman Bechard made two films with producer Charles Band that he now seems to have disowned due to Band's interference. Galactic Gigolo, the first of these two movies, is the story of an alien broccoli that wins a trip to the horniest town in the galaxy - Prospect, Connecticut. The leads from Psychos in Love return with Carmine Capobianco as the visiting extraterrestrial ("you have an extra testicle?") and Debi Thibeault as a reporter following him…
