Reanimated Review: ‘Stag Night of the Dead’

(0)
August 22, 2017

On November 11, 2010, I posted my first ever review on our old blog. It was 2010’s Stag Night of the Dead, directed by Neil Jones, which we watched by way of a screener link. I felt like I should preserve it on our current site. I haven’t seen the film since, but you know…. Read More ›

Horror Short Review: ‘Your Date is Here’ (2017)

Confession: I don’t often watch short films. And, really, there is zero reason behind it. Shorts are brisk, to the point, and I swear every time I see one, I am reminded that I need to watch more. This is such the case with 2017’s Your Date is Here, written and directed by Zak White and Todd Spence…. Read More ›

Movies We Love: Kong: Skull Island (2017)

Back in 1997, I went to see Titanic. I wasn’t expecting much…I mean, I already knew how it would end, right? Well, it wound up being a film that sat with me for days, maybe even weeks. Now, at that time I was a 19-year-old kid that watched slasher movies and Mallrats on repeat. I… Read More ›

Redemption Viewing (Halloween Edition): ‘Satan’s Little Helper’

Third time’s a charm, yeah? About this time 10 years ago, we were young and and free (sans kids) — consuming any and all Halloween-themed movies/TV episodes we could get our hands on — for better or worse. This was when we unearthed Satan’s Little Helper, the 2004 Halloween night romp about an annoying little kid with… Read More ›

Re-visiting Rob Zombie’s Halloween II

Seven years ago, on Halloween night…or, well actually, it was like in August I think, we watched Halloween II, the sequel to Rob Zombie’s divisive Halloween remake. Both Joanna and I hated it. So, of course, we had to watch it again and see if our initial hatred was warranted or if, with the passage… Read More ›

‘Shark Swarm’: A Review Rehash

Labor Day was last week. For many, it marks the official end of summer. In honor of that, here’s a little shark-related throwback. Back on June 14, 2008, well before we had any plans for a blog or website or podcast, I felt compelled to write a short review of the made-for-SyFy flick Shark Swarm.

BP Podcast, Episode 13: ‘Someone’s Watching Me’ & ‘The Toolbox Murders’ (1978, Birthday Edition)

Thirty-eight years ago, Johnny was born. And this week, we’re celebrating by taking a deep-dive look at two first-time watches from 1978: John Carpenter’s Someone’s Watching Me and cult fave The Toolbox Murders.

BP Podcast, Episode 12: A look back at 2006

This July marks the 10-year anniversary of when Joanna and Johnny started dating. Ten years is kind of a big deal, so… this episode looks back at 2006 movie moments! It was tough, but we narrowed it down to 10 horror movies and one pretty special non-horror movie (plus a couple other mentions). From The Hills… Read More ›

Franchise Friday: ‘Basket Case’

Up next: A weird, little franchise we haven’t visited in a while… June 3, 2014:  Basket Case (1982)  Is Belial a sympathetic horror character? Johnny: DISCLAIMER: When we watched Basket Case as part of our current Franchise Friday project, I totally slept through a ton of it. I was beat. But I’ve seen it enough in… Read More ›

‘Deathgasm’ and Me

When I was in seventh grade, circa 1990/1991, I was just a dude with long, scraggly hair, black stonewashed jeans, wire-framed glasses often held together by paperclips, Bart Simpson “Eat My Shorts” t-shirts and a love of what I referred to as metal. In retrospect, it’s easy to see why that year was not that… Read More ›
