Snake Outta Compton
Snake Outta Compton is the type of movie about which it seems safe to assume the title came WAY before a single word of the actual script was written. It's a punny, grade-school-level concept that's indicative of the humor within, but thanks to its relentless, all-in goofiness, the film...
Boo! A Madea Halloween
Boo! A Madea Halloween is a movie that shouldn't exist. It was conceived as a joke by Chris Rock for his movie Top Five, and Tyler Perry, apparently unfamiliar with the concept of parody, took it as a challenge. Thus, less than two years after Top Five opened, Tyler...
Not Another Zombie Movie
I know what you're thinking: not another zombie movie. Well, Not Another Zombie Movie beat you to the punch. Yes, it's another zombie movie, and more specifically, it's another zombie comedy ("zom com"). But here's a twist: it's an "urban" (read: black) zom com, which helps make it stand out...
The Alchemist Cookbook
The Alchemist Cookbook is a challenging film that defies categorization; it's part horror, part drama, part comedy and all quirky. It stands out from the bulk of today's genre movies due to its unconventional style -- essentially a one-man show, with a slow pace, ambiguous content, minimal dialogue and...
Dying to Kill
Dying to Kill is a little indie film that received a brief run on Hulu in late 2016, but otherwise, I don't think it's available anywhere, so if you want to see it, maybe you can make a flip book of drawings based on my description to get a...
Sharknado 4: The 4th Awakens
The Sharknado series began as a charmingly low-brow, tongue-in-cheek sendup of the disaster and killer animal movies you can catch on SyFy every weekend. It was initially innocuous, relatively low-key camp, but over time, the series has bought into its own viral appeal and now tries way too hard...
Topper Returns movie poster
In the third and final film in the Topper series of supernatural misadventures featuring lovable ghosts, Eddie “Rochester” Anderson is featured as Topper’s chauffeur, with his raspy, yelling voice (much more animated than Willie Best/Stepin Fetchit, and perhaps even slightly more than Mantan Moreland). Bug-eyed double takes are the...
Kracker Jack'd movie poster
Kracker Jack'd feeds off the fear that, DC Sniper and Atlanta Child Murderer aside, serial killers tend to be white. It's a fine basis for a film, and had anyone involved in the creative process been blessed with a modicum of talent, it might've lived up to that potential....
Grace Jones in Vamp movie poster
A fun horror-comedy that could only come from the '80s, Vamp features Grace Jones, scary enough as a human, as the evil vampire seductress Katrina. Fraternity pledges AJ and Keith (Robert Rusler and Chris Makepeace...Makepeace?) head to the city seeking strippers for their frat's big bash, only to stumble upon...
Leprechaun Back 2 tha Hood movie poster
Most people strive to escape the ghetto, but good ol' Leprechaun seems to relish it -- so much so that he's gone "back 2 tha hood" after his first time around. Rory (Laz Alonso) is a "good" drug dealer who you’re supposed to root for because he's not the...
