Teenage Frankenstein: Alice in the 80s (Alice Cooper Vol. 2)

(0)
May 25, 2017

Admittedly, I have a soft spot for Alice’s ’86 to ’91 era. I discovered the Coop by way of the ubiquitous “Poison” video during the heyday of MTV. Alice became sort of a family obsession, shared between myself, my brother, my sister and my mother. I would acquire his entire studio output, but those few… Read More ›

BP Podcast, Episode 26: “A Couple of ‘Chainsaw’ Revisits”

After a little time off, we’re back! And for this episode, we revisit two random-ass franchise movies: The Texas Chainsaw Massacre: The Next Generation (1994) and Texas Chainsaw 3D (2013). One we didn’t dig when we first watched it and one we didn’t remember a damn thing about. And the re-viewing results are interesting! We also pay our respects… Read More ›

Virgin Fangs: My First Viewing of Lugosi’s ‘Dracula’

Watching the original Dracula for the first time in 2017 feels a bit absurd. But that’s the way it is. I’d never seen the movie before. Although when you put together every famous scene and still involving Bela Lugosi’s Dracula, I may as well have seen the whole film in pieces. One of the biggest… 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 ›

So, 1987 turns 30 this year, and to honor that, we celebrate a shit load of movies! Man, it was a good year. We each picked our top 8 genre movies — there is some overlap — and have a good time. One caveat: Nightmare on Elm Street 3: Dream Warriors was excluded because, you know, it’s… Read More ›

Movies We Love: Drive Angry (2011)

Patrick Lussier’s Drive Angry is one of those movies that not a ton of people went to see, but pretty much anyone that did, loved it. It’s a supernatural action grindhouse explosion movie that does not let up from the first frame. And it is, without question, the movie that Nicolas Cage was made to… Read More ›
