Storm of the Dead horror movie
I've seen my share of misleading DVD covers, but Storm of the Dead might take the cake. A more accurate representation of both the content and the quality of the film would be the original Photoshop hatchet job of a poster: Even the tagline is misleading: "In the swamp, there...
28 Days Later horror movie poster
Those of you looking for a sequel to Sandra Bullock’s alcoholic drama 28 Days will probably be disappointed in 28 Days Later. The first clue that you have the wrong movie might be all the British accents. The second might be all the murders. The gritty and truly frightening...
Bleeding Rose horror movie poster
I would call Bleeding Rose a supernatural whodunit, except if you look at the DVD cover, it doesn't exactly take CSI to guess whodunit. Hint: the guy with the pentagram carved into his forehead is not to be trusted. The guy in question is Alex (Nicholas Vitulli), the abusive,...
Blood Tide horror movie poster
In the hindsight of DVD release-dom, James Earl Jones receives top-billing in this cast of C-grade stars, but as for the movie itself, he’s relegated to supporting status to Martin "Cobra Kai" Kove of Karate Kid fame and Lydia "Too Close for Comfort" Cornell. Why do Darth Vader like...
Caged Terror horror movie poster
Caged Terror stands as a towering testament to why kids should say no to drugs and why hippies should say no to filmmaking. I'm not sure how this movie was promoted when it was released, but it could hardly be considered horror, and it's only marginally a (very tame)...
Candyman horror movie poster
Outside of Blacula, perhaps no figure personifies "black horror" more than Candyman. And like Blacula, the iconicity is deserved. This movie is one of the most atmospheric and genuinely frightening films of the '90s -- granted, it's much scarier before Candyman (Tony Todd) reveals himself to be a rather...
Children of the Corn 2009 horror movie remake
Like many people, I thoroughly ignored the Children of the Corn remake once the label "SyFy original" was slapped on it, but when I finally got around to watching it, I almost dropped my hot wings: Holy Halle Berry! There's a black chick playing the Linda Hamilton role! Indeed, there...
Frogs horror movie poster
You'd be hard-pressed to find a less intimidating title for a horror movie than Frogs, but those who've witnessed Kermit's coke-fueled tirades first-hand know how scary these creatures can be. Frogs is set in an unnamed, Louisiana-esque swampy locale. Ray Milland, coupled with his role in The Thing with...
House of Wax movie poster
Poor Blake (Robert Ri'chard). First, he decides to take a "short cut" to the big football game. Then, he has to make out with Paris Hilton, whose breath no doubt smells of penis. Next, it turns out she might be pregnant (He is black after all; he can't help...
