The House Of The Devil had me at hello. I first saw the poster back in August on Dinner With Max Jenke and my interest was piqued instantly. The poster art brought me back to the video store trips of my youth. I spent so much time standing in the hor
Set in W.W.II France, The Inglorious Bastards follows five soldiers who are each facing court-martial for crimes ranging from stealing to murder. After a Nazi attack on the convoy transporting the prisoners to court, the soldiers escape and quickly d

Ahhh… the apocalypse, how I love thee. Well, when the apocalypse is in the form of celluloid that is. For whatever sadistic reason, I never tire of this genre and I’m a little surprised that I had never heard of the 1988 nuclear war film, Mir
I recently read a Facebook comment in which my cousin proclaimed she “would like the 3 hours she spent watching the new Friday the 13th and The Unborn back please! Great job being NOT interesting and NOT scary…” I thought to myself,
