Halloween Resurrection horror movie poster
Most people will consider Resurrection noteworthy because it's the film in which one of the original "final girls," Laurie Strode (Jamie Lee Curtis), "finally" dies, but I think it's just as noteworthy as the film in which the series finally "gets jiggy with it." For the longest time, Michael...
The Hills Have Eyes 2 horror movie poster
It's odd enough that The Hills Have Eyes 2 is a sequel to a remake of a movie that already had a sequel, but when you factor in that both "part ones" are lily-white, while both sequels feature two prominent black characters, things seem eerily calculated...Or maybe it's just...
Da Hip Hop Witch movie
As a movie reviewer, a lot of times it's more fun to watch a bad movie than a good one because they're easier to write about and are more susceptible to wacky critical zingers ("Fantastic Four? More like Not-So-Fantastic Bore. Burn!"), but there's nothing enjoyable about Da Hip Hop...
Holla horror movie poster
Since modern direct-to-video urban horror started proliferating in Blockbusters around the country in the mid-'90s, the quality has been, shall we say, sketchy -- so much so that moderate theatrical stabs at the sub-genre like Bones and Tales from the Hood seem like masterpieces by comparison. Well, Holla's here...
Holla If I Kill You movie poster
You might be tempted to dismiss this low-budget comedic slasher, but in some ways it's an important and perceptive film. Well, maybe not "important," but in light of the whole KKKramer controversy with Michael Richards, Holla If I Kill You is eerily prophetic. It revolves around the world of...
Holla If You Hear Me horror movie
I feel obliged to review this movie less because it's urban horror than in order to clarify that I had nothing to do with it whatsoever. You see, the director has the same name as me (Mark Harris), and as much as I admire his parents for their good...
Hood of the Living Dead horror movie
There's actually a good idea for a horror movie in here somewhere; where better to find a steady supply of corpses ripe for zombification than in the 'hood? The 'hood in question here is in Oakland. A scientist (Carl Washington, who hasn't let an inability to act stop him...
Hood Rat horror movie poster
I don't know the story behind this film's multiple titles, but I can almost guarantee that Tara was the original name until some meeting of brilliant minds decided it was more marketable to call it...HOOD RAT. I'm guessing if C.H.U.D. had a black cast, it would've been titled T.H.O.T....
The Horrible Doctor Bones horror movie
I'll resist the urge to make a pun about how "horrible" this film is -- although it is pretty bad. I hesitate to call the script a "script." It's more like two or three plot points jotted down on a napkin, padded out with musical numbers. That's right; I...
Ice Spiders horror movie
If it's Saturday night on SyFy, it can mean only one thing: giant bugs! Or giant snakes. Or giant sharks. Or giant weasels. Or normal-sized weasels with giant delusions of grandeur. But Ice Spiders stands out from the pack not for its creature content, but rather because it...
