The Beast Must Die horror movie poster

The Beast Must Die! (1974)

This is a fun little film that combines a monster movie with an Agatha Christie-style whodunit. The monster in question is a werewolf, and the whodunit in question is...
Bats horror movie

Bats (1999)

I know that Leon isn't exactly Sidney Poitier ("They call me, er, well, Leon it is."), but even he is above the demeaning role of Jimmy in Bats....
Brackula: The Musical movie

Barackula: The Musical (2008)

When I heard the title of this horror/comedy/musical short, I was first intrigued, then apprehensive, then a bit hungry (I had a bagel; problem solved), and finally intrigued again....

Automaton Transfusion (2008)

Automaton Transfusion is decent in a "seemingly written and directed during a drunken weekend bender" sort of way, but otherwise it brings little new to the zombie table. It's written...
Are You Scared horror movie

Are You Scared (2006)

Sometimes I feel like I might overreact a bit when I complain about certain African-American portrayals in horror movies -- and really, in movies in general -- but then...
Arachnia horror movie poster

Arachnia (2003)

This otherwise laughable giant spider movie is notable in that it features a black heroine, Chandra (Irene Joseph). Granted, Chandra is just as laughable as the rest of the...
