Boo 2! A Madea Halloween
Boo 2! A Madea Halloween for me is kind of like a visit to the dentist you’ve been putting off for years. I’ve been meaning to get to it because I know I SHOULD (with Boo 2, for the sake of cultural literacy; with my teeth, for the sake...
Bill Huckstabelle: Serial Rapist
If the U.S. were ever to fully devolve into a totalitarian dictatorship with full governmental media control, one unforeseen benefit could be that we may never again have to see a movie like Bill Huckstabelle: Serial Rapist. I’d like to say that, in this scenario, it would be censored...
Party Day Massacre Stories
Party Day Massacre Stories is a movie in the same way that I would be a surgeon if I were to sneak into a hospital, steal some scrubs and haphazardly dig around a patient's chest cavity with a can opener. Yes, I'm technically performing an operation, but no one...
The Tale of the Voodoo Prostitute
The Tale of the Voodoo Prostitute is a Miley Cyrus type of horror movie. That is, it's awash in crude cultural appropriation, adopting a stereotypical vision of blackness for some perceived hipness factor without ever truly buying into black culture. As evidenced by the golden gun-toting gangsta on the...
Meet the Blacks
In modern horror, it seems a movie isn't a true success until someone parodies it. Black filmmakers have taken a prominent role in the horror parody genre, from the Wayans brothers' Scary Movie franchise to Marlon Wayans' A Haunted House movies. Heck, even Tyler Perry's Madea Halloween flicks have some...
A Haunted House 2
To those of you who boosted A Haunted House's opening weekend last year to a better-than-expected $18 million, you have no one but yourselves to blame for the misery that is A Haunted House 2. Picking up where A Haunted House left off, Malcolm (Marlon Wayans) and his cousin Ray...
A Haunted House
Marlon Wayans had a hand in writing Scary Movie, the entertaining surprise hit from 2000 that rekindled America's taste for spoof movies -- following the Airplane! series of the '80s and the Naked Gun flicks of the '90s -- but if his latest genre sendup A Haunted House is...
Cherry Tree Lane
I'm no expert on UK culture, but it seems that for the first decade or so of the 21st century, there was a (real or perceived) increase in adolescent crime attributed to youths dressed in hoodies who seemingly adopted what they saw as the dangerous elements of hip-hop culture,...
Honkey Holocaust movie
Over the years, Charles Manson has achieved cult hero status amongst people who are apparently willing to forgive (or forget, or just not give a damn about) the fact that he not only orchestrated the murders of nine innocent people (including 8-months-pregnant actress Sharon Tate), but also that he's...
horror movie The Night Seekers
The Night Seekers is one of those movies that’s so spectacularly bad, I'd need to review the script word by word to even come close to conveying its awfulness. It’s so fundamentally flawed, it operates on a different plane of existence. It's hard to even know what to make...
