Little Monsters
Although she’s starred in more acclaimed films, Little Monsters might just be the movie that best embodies the spirit of the Cult of Lupita Nyong'o. All of the qualities we’ve come to love about her -- beauty, style, class, wit, charisma, smarts, vivacity -- are on full display in...
Last Ones Out
Africa in horror movies is like Cleveland in real life: nothing good comes from going there. Its sole purpose, it seems, is to serve as home to ravenous animals and menacing supernatural entities, along with the hapless natives who fall prey to them so the white protagonists don’t have...
overlord
Genre films about supernatural Nazi evildoings have been around since King of the Zombies (released during the Nazi regime of the 1940s, before the US even entered WWII), but they've exploded in number in the 21st century, headed by the likes of Hellboy, Dead Snow, Outpost, Frankenstein's Army, Iron...
Ojuju movie poster
There's something universal about the nightmarish thrill of watching someone being eaten alive by reanimated corpses that has led to the propagation of zombie movies around the world. I've seen living dead films from six of the seven continents, and frankly, I can't say with 100% certainty there isn't...
The Dead zombie movie
An unnamed war-torn region of West Africa becomes home to atrocities beyond any it has ever witnessed when the dead begin to rise and consume the living. Amidst the chaos, an American military engineer named Brian Murphy (Rob Freeman) boards the last evacuation flight out of the area, only...
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...
Wasteland horror movie
With its scenes of a lone black man sifting through the ruins of a zombie apocalypse while he flashes back to memories of life before the outbreak, Wasteland could be described as a British I Am Legend -- give or take $150 million in budget. Shameer Seepersand is the poor...
Zoombies horror movie
It should go without saying that my expectations for a movie about zombie zoo animals were pretty low, but one of the joys of being a horror fan of color is watching a random little flick like this and realizing the hero is actually someone who looks like you....
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....
