Reanimated Review: ‘Stag Night of the Dead’

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 ›

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).

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 ›

BP Podcast, Episode 24: “‘My Bloody Valentine’ and Other Vday Viewing Traditions”

Join us this week as we celebrate Valentine’s Day! We chat up the original ’81 slasher My Bloody Valentine, its worthy ’09 remake, and a bunch of other standard (and not) Valentine’s Day viewing traditions. Ahem, sexy thrillers.

We also rewatch the loose SNDN remake, Silent Night (2012), and discuss (is it still forgettable?). We also talk about recent movie viewings — including a lot of Thanksgiving and holiday flicks… Read More ›
