Not to be confused with “Funky Town”.

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.

Beware of women, witchcraft, and the wilderness, because The Witch (2015) is the Greatest Movie EVER!

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.

Review in a Nutshell: A fun little “creature feature” that completely flies apart in the third act, Graveyard Shift nevertheless has excellent production value, good special effects, and charming performances from a strong cast of character actors.

Beware of angry poltergeists, because The Changeling (1980) is the Greatest Movie EVER.

Click on the movie title or the poster above to download our review of the film, featuring “Celebrity Translator” Neil Nadelman.

Review in a Nutshell: The Changeling (1980) is a beautifully shot, gorgeously edited, low-key, suspenseful film that is part ghost story and part detective story. Although the final act stumbles a bit after all of the mysteries are revealed, it’s still interesting as a well-made, atypical horror movie.

ERRATA: I accidentally referred to House on Haunted Hill as 13 Ghosts. Mea culpa.

Strap on your snow shoes, because The Frankenstein Theory is (probably not) the Greatest Movie EVER!

Click on the movie poster or the title above to download our review of the film,

featuring Katherin the Great.

Review in a Nutshell: A fairly typical found-footage horror film saddled with a particularly improbable premise, The Frankenstein Theory plays more like a tourist advertisement for beautiful Alaskan scenery than a suspenseful melodrama. I enjoyed Kris Lemche as the resident mad scientist, though.

Dead Teenagers. IN SPACE!

Break out the impromptu guitar jam sessions, because Phantasm is the Greatest Movie EVER!

featuring Tom Pandich of Tomics! by Tom!!! and the Alter Ego’s podcast.

Review in a Nutshell: Phantasm is a shining example of that rarest breed of horror film – the horror movie that functions on a symbolic level. Strange, dream-like, and surreal, it’s a movie that constantly challenges the viewers’ expectations.

FINAL THOUGHT:
