Gas up the Sea-Doo, because Deep Rising is the Greatest Movie EVER?
Click on the DVD cover or the title above to download our review of the film, featuring guest host Matt “Saint Mort” Kelly of the Horror Movie Night podcast.
Review in a Nutshell: A typical Stephen Summers action-horror movie with some questionable screenwriting and some dodgy CG, Deep Rising is none-the-less remembered fondly by many fans. I am not one of those fans.

Gas up the 1967 Chevy Impala, because Phantom Town (also known as Spooky Town) is the Greatest Movie EVER!
Click on the VHS box cover or the title above to download our review of the film, featuring Sean “Hollywood” Hunting.
Review in a Nutshell: As far as low budget, “Weird West” children’s films about a suburban family succumbing to the depredations of an unspeakable Lovecraftian eldritch horror go, Phantom Town isn’t bad. Okay, it’s actually pretty bad, but its bizarre premise alone makes it worth watching at least once.
Here is a link to Erin Finnegan’s Puppet VR Murder Mystery Kickstarter Project. Good luck, Erin!
And here is what the cover of the 2013 DVD released by Moonbeam Entertainment looks like. Too spooky!

Watch out for under-cranked stock footage from nature documentaries, because Jaws 3-D is (probably not) the Greatest Movie EVER!
Click on the title or the movie poster above to download our review of the film, featuring Matt “Saint Mort” Kelly from the Horror Movie Night podcast.
Review in a Nutshell: Hamstrung by an implausible premise and gimmicky 3-D camerawork, Jaws 3-D is arguably the nadir of the Jaws films. Despite a surprising amount of talent arrayed before and behind the camera, the film’s plot never quite hits its stride and the cinematography and special effects suffer from the de-conversion process. It’s an odd relic from an early Eighties 3-D revival that never got off the ground.

Beware of women, witchcraft, and the wilderness, because The Witch (2015) is the Greatest Movie EVER!
Click on the movie poster or the title above to download our review of the film featuring Zac Bertschy of Anime News Network and Kristina ‘ChibiUFO’ Foster.
Review in a Nutshell: A grim, challenging film of pain-staking period detail and exquisite composition, The Witch (2015) is an atypical, intelligent horror tale with strong feminist themes and disturbing religious subtext.

Lay off the anti-aircraft artillery, because Repticilus is (probably not) The Greatest Movie EVER!
Click on the lobby card or the title above to download our review of the film, featuring M.O.M., the Mistress of Malapropisms.
Review in a Nutshell: A Danish / American co-production sponsored in part by American International Pictures, Reptilicus is one part giant monster movie, one part travelogue, and one part puzzling artifact of the mysteries of international productions. Apparently, in the Danish version of the film, there is at least one more musical number, and also the titular monster can fly.
This is an actual screen capture that from Reptilicus, highlighting the movie’s “spectacular” special effects.

Gas up the chainsaw, because Army of Darkness is the Greatest Movie EVER!
Click on the movie poster or the title above to download our review of the film, featuring M.O.M., the Mistress of Malapropisms.
Review in a Nutshell: Although the theatrical cut of Army of Darkness suffers from the choppy final edit foisted upon the film by the studio, the 3rd movie in The Evil Dead series is still the funniest and most easily accessible entry, and it stands out as a fun throwback to an age of practical special effects from the days before the ascension of CG.

Fire up your post-apocalyptic motorbikes, because Rats: Night of Terror is the Greatest Movie EVER!.
Click on the Italian movie poster or the title above to download our review of the featuring Oli “InvidNinja92” Bulmer.
Review in a Nutshell: A low-budget post-apocalyptic Italian exploitation film that borrows liberally from such source material as Night of the Living Dead and H.G. Wells’ The Time Machine, Rats: Night of Terror is worth viewing for some surprisingly well composed scenes and an ending that is baffling in ways that only a Claudio Fragasso script can achieve. Squeak, squeak.
Do not use Google Image Search to look up this movie. The top results are massive spoilers.
