Revenge of the Zombies horror movie poster
A semi-sequel to King of the Zombies, Revenge of the Zombies is more like King of the Zombies Redux, with Mantan Moreland reprising his role as bug-eyed servant Jeff, albeit in a different location (Louisiana instead of the Caribbean) and with a different (albeit equally rigid) cast of characters....
Saw IV horror movie poster
Amazingly, black SWAT team commander Lt. Rigg (Lyriq Bent) appeared in two straight Saw films without so much as a scratch, and as such, he was rewarded by a co-starring role in Saw IV -- because really, everyone else is dead. Even though Jigsaw (Tobin Bell) died in Saw III,...
I Still Know What You Did Last Summer horror movie poster
Apparently, what you did last summer was make a crappy movie. This is the type of sequel that's so bad, it diminishes the memory of the otherwise enjoyable original (see also Resident Evil: Apocalypse). This pointless, unimaginative rehash (which even revisits the overhead shot of Jennifer Love Hewitt yelling...
Scream Blacula Scream horror movie poster
A decent follow-up to the original blaxploitation classic, Scream, Blacula, Scream finds Mamuwalde awakened by aspiring voodoo priest "Whatchoo Talkin' 'Bout" Willis (Richard Lawson) because, well, he' s an idiot. Mamuwalde proceeds to turn him into a vampire slave, and then Willis turns his girlfriend Denny (Lynne Moody) into...
Jason Goes to Hell: The Final Friday horror movie poster
While Chucky never succeeding in becoming a "bro" in Child's Play 3, for a brief period in time, Jason Vorhees was a black man. In a shark-, whale- and sea horse-jumping plot wrinkle, Jason's immortality is explained in Jason Goes to Hell as his being an evil worm-like entity...
Son of Kong horror movie poster
A rushed, inferior (and pretty darn goofy) sequel in all respects, Son of Kong clocks in at barely 70 minutes, leaving little room for the menacing natives of the original. Although the movie posters show a rain of spears threatening our heroes, the Skull Islanders here are allotted all...
Jason X horror movie poster
While the first couple of Friday the 13th films were noticeably lacking in color, the series has made up for those monochromatic early days by including fairly significant black characters in most of the entries since then. Apart from the downright Negroid Part 5, Jason X has the largest...
Trilogy of Terror 2 horror movie
The creators of this long-awaited sequel certainly knew where their bread was buttered, as they chose to feature the ol' Zuni fetish doll on the video artwork with no regard whatsoever to the human stars. As with the original Trilogy of Terror, the first two stories, fine as they...
Jaws: The Revenge movie poster
The premise behind Jaws: The Revenge is so lame, it should be put down for humanitarian reasons. It's so lame, it should be called Jaws: Jump the Shark. It's so lame, I don't even want to make jokes about it anymore. It's so ridiculous a concept that I could...
Urban Legends: Final Cut horror movie poster
Loretta Devine defies the odds and survives a not one, but two horror films (this and its predecessor, Urban Legend). Sadly, the same can't be said for Anthony Anderson. Even more sadly, Joey Lawrence manages to survive. Plus, by dying in a horror film, a young Eva Mendes takes the...
