Night of the Living Dead (1968)

  View this post on Instagram   A post shared by Lara (@knobbygirl) on Nov 20, 2018 at 11:54am PST The kids and I have been watching Eli Roth’s History of Horror and the first episode was about zombies. I figure that the best way to introduce them is to begin with the film that […]

Victor Crowley

Getting Schooled

The Breakfast Club meets Apocalypse Now – how’s that for a fucking amazing tagline? The people who brought us The Haunted Trailer were back at Frightmare with another locally made horror film. I was tentatively afraid that Getting Schooled would be a rehash of Haunted Trailer, but it was totally different in tone and content. […]

Texas Frightmare Massacre

How does Parrish Randall know what dog vagina tastes like? I guess there are just some questions that I’ll never know the answer to…although, I bet I could ask my 3 year old, because she won’t stop letting the dog lick her open mouth, no matter how much I scream at her. I guess I […]

Alive and Lubricated

What exactly has been lubricated here? As I see it, the word “lubricated” in the title could be referring to one of two things. “Lubricated” as in partaking of alcoholic beverages, as alcohol is often referred to as a social lubricant. Much, much alcohol is consumed throughout the film – in almost every scene in […]


Warning: there are no actual bums in this picture. I admit, when I slid Bums into the DVD player, I began watching with the trepidation that usually accompanies foreign films. Five minutes in, I heard the first “aboot” and giggled. I thought to myself, “Am I going to be able to get past this?” I’m […]

Cornman: American Vegetable Hero

Cornman is the new Cannibal! That’s a pretty bold statement, almost on par with saying that orange is the new pink. But there you have it, the literary equivalent of premature ejaculation. I loved Cornman. Why Cornman, you ask? How can such a stupid movie be named as successor to the throne of Trey Parker? […]


I hate wine. Although I have been known to quaff Strawberry Hill and other Boone’s Farm delicacies – not to mention the occasional “box-o-wine” – I (and most drinkers outside of the hardcore, homeless winos) hardly categorize those things as real wine. Real wine is seriously gross. Red wines, by far, are the grossest, although […]


This movie was retarded and boring. And Pretentious – don’t forget pretentious. In the past, I’d claimed that David Lynch had never led me astray. I’ll never be making *that* statement again. As Executive Producer (and cameo star) of this movie, you’d think that he would have known better…but nope, I was forced to sit […]


May is the kind of film that I look for, hope for and have a helluva hard time finding. What kind of film is that, you ask? The kind that actually gives me nightmares. They weren’t heinous nightmares by any stretch of the imagination, but there were dismembered cats chasing me through my dreams that […]
