Terror-dactyl!

No, it’s not an obscure but terrifying poetic form, it’s Q, the Winged Serpent, the Greatest Movie EVER!

Review in a Nutshell:  This movies is BAD.  Really, really bad.  No, I’m serious.  It’s bad.  Even the presence of David Carradine and Richard Roundtree cannot salvage this film. 

On the plus side, Claymation dragon-dinosaur.

Don’t act like you didn’t see this coming…

Place your bets on your favorite giant marauding reptile, because Komodo vs Cobra is the Greatest Movie EVER!

Review in a Nutshell: Unlike The Curse of the Komodo from the same director, Glori-Anne Gilbert does not get naked in this film.  Also, there are giant, computer generated endangered species, and they fight.

Racism, Misogyny, and Zombie Insensitivity

Aim for the head, because Dawn of the Dead is the Greatest Movie EVER!

Review in a Nutshell: Low budget and slowly paced, Dawn of the Dead is the cornerstone of the genre for the zombie afficianados out there.  For everyone, else, well…

All Sean, all the time.

‘Lugubrious’ Actually Means ‘Melancholy’

Beware of Dog

Watch for the Werewolf Break, because The Beast Must Die is the Greatest Movie EVER!

Review in a Nutshell: The Beast Must Die is a quirky hybrid of murder mystery and werewolf movie with a stellar cast that was filmed at the beautiful Shepperton Studios in England. The film’s salient features are the Werewolf Break and the fact that the werewolf was played by a large, fluffy dog.

This movie contains:

Ground Mics!

Obnoxious House Guests.

Dog on the roof. DOG ON THE ROOF!

Exploding Helicopters.

Orphanages and Bullies Don’t Really Exist.

Don’t drink the amber rum, because The Devil’s Backbone is the Greatest Movie EVER!

Review in a Nutshell: The Devil’s Backbone is a Gothic tale of injustice and inevitability set during the Spanish Civil War. Think of it as a primer for Pan’s Labyrinth, with less magic, more realism, and no Doug Jones.

This movie contains:

Inappropriate Relationships.

Friendly Ghosts.

Burn Victims.

Savage Children.

COMING SOON!

Mom and I take a crack at The Beast Must Die. Watch for the Werewolf Break!

Are you Afraid of the Dark?

Beware of mutant space geckos, because Pitch Black is the Greatest Movie EVER!

Review in a Nutshell: Pitch Black is a clever little science fiction film with a used universe aesthetic and a scintillating performance by Vin Diesel as escaped convict Richard B. Riddick. Too bad David Twohy had to muck it all up in the sequel…

This movie contains:

Keith David, Space Faring Muslim.

Purple People Eaters? (Okay, that’s more of a Cyan…)

ACTING!

PATHOS.

COMING SOON!

Once again we’ll venture into the Gothic imagination of Guillermo del Toro

when Sean and I review The Devil’s Backbone.

Bad Moon, or Bad Touch?

Blame it on the family dog, because Bad Moon is the Greatest Movie EVER!

This movie contains:

Faithful Family Pets.

Nasty Werewolves.

Creepy Uncles.

FINAL THOUGHT:

This is not the expression I would make in reaction to an impending Werewolf mauling.
