  • “TALES FROM THE CRYPT PRESENTS: DEMON KNIGHT” (Blu-ray Review)

    ,,

    Even though TALES FROM THE CRYPT took pop culture by storm when it debuted at the tail end of the ’80s, it’s a damn shame that the first film under the series’ banner, DEMON KNIGHT, isn’t considered to be more of a genre classic. With one of the strongest ensemble casts in horror history, an imaginative script and brilliant practical effects work from Todd Masters, Ernest Dickerson’s first foray into fright filmmaking is an undeniably fun and impressive effort on all accounts. And yet, DEMON KNIGHT never quite carries the same weight as contemporary classics such as TRICK ‘R TREAT, NIGHTBREED and PUMPKINHEAD, although hopefully that reputation will turn around with the film’s incredible new Blu-ray from Scream Factory.

  • Stream to Scream: “BIG ASS SPIDER”

    ,,

    In today’s current horror landscape, there seems to be three kinds of creature features made for hardcore monster movie fans. The first would be the big budget blockbusters such as GODZILLA or PACIFIC RIM, which offer insane monster fighting action at a massive scale. The second would be the no-budget Syfy Originals, which offer over-the-top monster-run-amok films with Z-grade FX and stern, humorless performances. And then there’s the few and far between that comes out of the independent film world, some which have a campy appreciation for the creature features of the past and some, such as BIG ASS SPIDER!, that embrace the genre’s nature and makes comedy out of an inherently comical concept.
