Hold on to your ancestral family curses, because Black Sunday is The Greatest Movie EVER!
Click on the Blu-ray cover or the title above to download our review of the film, featuring Megan, aka “Brainchild“, from The Manga Test Drive.
Review in a Nutshell: A sumptuous pre-giallo Gothic horror film that is also a blatant Dracula rip-off, Black Sunday highlights the aesthetic choices that earned director Mario Bava the title of the godfather of Italian horror.
Hold onto your blood, because The Legend of the 7 Golden Vampires is the Greatest Movie EVER!
Click on the Bluray cover or the title above to download our review of the film, featuring Oli “InvidNinja92” Bulmer.
Review in a Nutshell: An ambitious production troubled by a clash of directorial styles and studio difficulties, the Hammer Films / Shaw Brothers co-production that pits martial heroes against Dracula and his hordes of jiangshi servants is not quite the chocolate / peanut butter combination you would expect from a film that mixes Gothic horror with kung fu action.
Pray for daylight, because Near Dark is the Greatest Movie EVER!
Click on the particularly egregious Bluray cover or the title above to download our review of the film, featuring Kyle “ChibiUFO” Foster.
Review in a Nutshell: Part Western, part romance, part vampire film, part motorcycle gang road movie, Near Dark is a film with revolutionary ideas and strong performances that is weakened by the simplicity with which it solves its central problem. Definitely worth a viewing or two.

Terrible meme humor aside, July is coming to a close and we’d be remiss if we didn’t offer up another quivering slab of Anime Fun Time.

Ghost vampires are like the worst kind of vampire.

Hold onto your precious essence, because Lifeforce is the Greatest Movie EVER!
Click on the movie poster or the title above to download our review of the film, featuring the UK’s own Ollie Bulmer.
Review in a Nutshell: Great special effects, droll British performances, and the lovely Mathilda May can’t prevent this troubled Golan / Globus production from being tugged in too many different directions at once. Is this the Greatest Movie EVER? Ollie and I disagree.
Break out the repeating crossbows, because Underworld: Rise of the Lycans is the Greatest Movie EVER!
Click on the movie poster or movie title above to download our review of the film.
Review in a Nutshell: Underworld: Rise of the Lycans is the best of the Underworld series, mostly because it riffs on Lord of the Rings rather than The Matrix. Also, this time the vampires finally get what’s coming to them.
This movie contains:
Hold onto your viscera, because Against the Dark is the Greatest Movie EVER!
Review in a Nutshell: A messy, straight-to-DVD action / horror movie, Against the Dark begs the question: Which is the real lumbering, undead monster? A vampire? Or Steven Seagal’s career?
