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,...
The Pizza Man horror movie
From Velli Entertainment, the production company who subjected you to The Black Witch Project comes The Pizza Man, a movie so bad the filmmakers couldn't be bothered to finish it. It clocks in at about 48 minutes long, credits included, and all I have to say is, Thank God....
Motor Home Massacre horror movie
At the risk of ruining this movie (Then again, it’s called Motor Home Massacre; can it be ruined any more than it already is?) by revealing the identity of the killer, this otherwise nondescript horror movie distinguishes itself by being *SPOILER ALERT* one of the rare (the first?) non-all-black slashers to...
Kracker Jack'd
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....
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...
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...
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...
Bela Lugosi in Invisible Ghost horror movie poster
Clarence Muse has a surprisingly significant role as the butler to the occasionally homicidal Charles Kessler (Bela Lugosi). Muse plays the part with rare class, self-respect, articulation, and balls. For instance, he schools the scheming white maid, Cecile (Terry Walker): "If you wanna stay here, I suggest you don't...
Embalmer horror movie
Predating Full Moon releases like Killjoy by several years, Embalmer was one of the earliest of the "urban horror" films of the '90s. The movie brings to life a supposed urban legend of "Undertaker Zach", a killer so vicious that he inspired a Lizzie Borden-like hop scotch rhyme: Tell you...
Ax Em horror movie poster
Some movies have to be seen to be believed, and while I wouldn't ordinarily recommend a film as bad as Ax 'Em, someone else must feel my pain. In fact, I think that every household in the world should own this movie so that the next time you see...
