The Walrus and The Carpenter: Kevin Smith’s TUSK

*Danger, Will Robinson: Affiliate Links Ahead! Clicking on some links may compensate myself and the blog. Read the disclosure policy for complete info.* Republished today in memory of Michael Parks. Tusk I became acquainted with a Walrus when I was lost at sea. I would describe Tusk as a horror-comedy. I really would. I’d also describe it…

MOVIE REVIEW: Leigh Janiak's Honeymoon is a horror/thriller bound to make you think twice about who you're marrying | onecriticalbitch.com

Honeymoon

*Danger, Will Robinson: Affiliate Links Ahead! Read the disclosure policy for complete info.*   The first in this year’s series (but certainly not the last) to be written and directed by a woman, Honeymoon is everything a horror movie should be. It’s also something new, something different, and dare I say – maybe something better.

MOVIE REVIEW: Olatunde Osunsanmi's THE FOURTH KIND | onecriticalbitch.com

The Fourth Kind

*Danger, Will Robinson: Affiliate Links Ahead! Read the disclosure policy for complete info.* It’s fair to say The Fourth Kind is not well reviewed. Rotten Tomatoes’ critics’ consensus calls it “hokey,” “clunky,” and somehow “makes its close encounters seem eerily mundane.” I don’t disagree with any of those thoughts, per say. It is a little hokey. It can be really…

REVIEW: Jack the Ripper and Johnny Depp in FROM HELL (2001) - Join in on #31DaysofHorror at onecriticalbitch.com

From Hell

*Danger, Will Robinson: Affiliate Links Ahead! Read the disclosure policy for complete info.* From Hell  is that  sort of odd 2000s conundrum: a self-serious historical thriller with the editing style of a teen slasher pic. I can’t defend Heather Graham’s difficulty with a cockney accent, but I do have a soft spot for the flashy cuts…

REVIEW: Mumblegore from the likes of Patrick Brice and Mark Duplass in "Creep" 92014) - Join in on #31DaysofHorror at onecriticalbitch.com

Creep

*Danger, Will Robinson: Affiliate Links Ahead! Read the disclosure policy for complete info.* I don’t like found footage horror and I seriously struggle with mumblecore (this is a thing, we’ll discuss it). But I really think I like Patrick Brice and Mark Duplass’s little aptly named creeper, Creep.

REVIEW: Slither (2006) - a B-style horror/comedy from James Gunn - Join in on #31DaysofHorror at onecriticalbitch.com

Slither

*Danger, Will Robinson: Affiliate Links Ahead! Read the disclosure policy for complete info.* Before he was helming Guardians of the Galaxy, James Gunn was playing in a low-budget B-Movie sandbox. Slither is a sci-fi/horror comedy that makes great use of bugs, slugs, and meteors from outer space.

REVIEW: Horror movie Pontypool is kind of like a zombie movie, kind of something else - Join in on #31DaysofHorror at onecriticalbitch.com

Pontypool

*Danger, Will Robinson: Affiliate Links Ahead! Read the disclosure policy for complete info.* Every once in a while, something special comes along to shake up a genre that’s just a little stale. Pontypool may not be a zombie movie in a traditional sense, but it’s those little differences that make it truly memorable.

The Eclipse

*Danger, Will Robinson: Affiliate Links Ahead! Read the disclosure policy.* Terrible news if you’ve been a fan of the in-your-face horror options presented thus far (See Halloween, Drag Me To Hell, and Identity). More along the lines of Absentia, but with a grander, more classic tone, The Eclipse is at its heart a romance. A romance with…

REVIEW: Identity (2003) starring John Cusack, Ray Liotta, and Amanda Peet - Join in on #31DaysofHorror at onecriticalbitch.com

Identity

*Danger, Will Robinson: Affiliate Links Ahead! Read the disclosure policy for more info.* I’m a critic, not a reviewer. I don’t want to waste a lot of time covering films that don’t matter. Identity (2003) is not a film that I love, and in my re-watch this month, I’m not entirely sure it’s even a film…

REVIEW: Sam Raimi's Drag Me To Hell (2009) - Join in on #31DaysofHorror at onecriticalbitch.com

Drag Me To Hell

*Danger, Will Robinson: Affiliate Links Ahead! Read the disclosure policy for more info* Nearly two decades since his last installment of Evil Dead flair (the cult classic Army of Darkness), Sam Raimi dropped his new comic book movie reputation to return to his roots. Drag Me To Hell is an homage to the past, but also a regeneration: proof that…
