Trilogy of Terror 2 horror movie
The creators of this long-awaited sequel certainly knew where their bread was buttered, as they chose to feature the ol' Zuni fetish doll on the video artwork with no regard whatsoever to the human stars. As with the original Trilogy of Terror, the first two stories, fine as they...
Jaws: The Revenge movie poster
The premise behind Jaws: The Revenge is so lame, it should be put down for humanitarian reasons. It's so lame, it should be called Jaws: Jump the Shark. It's so lame, I don't even want to make jokes about it anymore. It's so ridiculous a concept that I could...
Urban Legends: Final Cut horror movie poster
Loretta Devine defies the odds and survives a not one, but two horror films (this and its predecessor, Urban Legend). Sadly, the same can't be said for Anthony Anderson. Even more sadly, Joey Lawrence manages to survive. Plus, by dying in a horror film, a young Eva Mendes takes the...
Jeepers Creepers 2 horror movie poster
Given that Jeepers Creepers 2 stars a high school basketball team, I suppose it's not surprising that it has a large number of black cast members. The shirtless homoeroticism, on the other hand, goes unexplained. (Maybe the director's prior arrest for child molestation has something to do with it.) We...
Wishmaster horror movie poster
Three black characters (most notably played by Tony Todd and Bokeem Woodbine) appear in each of these first two movies in the killer genie Wishmaster franchise. None of them are major, but all of are apparently worth killin'! Six up, six down; pretty impressive, even in this age of black...
Killjoy 2 horror movie poster
Killjoy was not what people in the industry would refer to as, um, "good," but Angel Vargas's performance as the killer clown was one of the few bright spots. Imagine my dismay, then, when the sequel came out featuring Trent Haaga as KJ. Watching it, I was further miffed...
Zombie 4 horror movie poster
While the original Zombie (AKA Zombi 2) was a genuine thrill, its inevitable sequels can only be described as "lacking." Camp value is the main thing the third, fourth, and fifth films in the series have to offer, but Zombie 4 comes the closest to matching the original's quality. That...
Land of the Dead horror movie poster
Land of the Dead is the fourth film in George Romero's "Dead" series and the fourth to feature a strong black lead or co-lead. This time, however, bro'man is batting for the other team. That's right, he's a so-called "stencher" -- making the slur (the "S" word?) all the more...
Leprechaun Back 2 tha Hood movie poster
Most people strive to escape the ghetto, but good ol' Leprechaun seems to relish it -- so much so that he's gone "back 2 tha hood" after his first time around. Rory (Laz Alonso) is a "good" drug dealer who you’re supposed to root for because he's not the...
Leprechaun in the Hood movie poster
What can you say about a movie in which a man gets stabbed in the neck with an afro pick and a Leprechaun quotes Martin Luther King, Jr. within the first five minutes? At least it's not directed by Uwe Boll? Actually, this is above average for a direct-to-video...
