All right guys, I'm actually moving my movie reviews to my Wordpress blog so I can try and reach a wider audience. If you ever enjoyed reading my blog posts, it would be great (and wise) for you to check out my blog and possibly subscribe to my feed? Anyway, yeah. I haven't done a post in quite some time but I'm bored out of my mind as of late so I'll probably do a bit.
I actually have a huge-ass list of films on my phone that I've been meaning to review, I just haven't gotten around to doing it.
Here's the link to my new blog: https://orsonwellespeas.wordpress.com/
You guys (the usual ones who comment and read my stuff, but everyone else too) are just great and whenever I saw that you commented on my blogposts, I really felt a sense of commu…Read more >

Basket Case (directed by Frank Henenlotter) was always one of those movies I had heard or read about or seen on the shelves of the horror section at Barnes and Noble, but I was never really keen on buying it.
Eventually, I came around to purchasing Brain Damage, another Frank Henenlotter film that I'll talk about in another review.
I thoroughly enjoyed Brain Damage and Henenlotter's use of comedy and horror being blended together, so I decided that I may as well give Basket Case a go. And it was something.
The story is relatively simply. A man named Duane walks around New York City with a basket. The basket lid is locked tight with a padlock, creating an overall mystery to the whole thing. He chec…

There are spoilers in this review. You have been warned.
Being a huge fan of the original, I was shocked to learn that there was a sequel, and even a third film in this series after doing some research.
Bride of Re-Animator has the same main cast as the original, with the exception of Barbara Crampton as Megan, who (SPOILERS), died at the end of the original film.
The plot takes place eight months after the epic battle between the living and the dead lead by the decapitated Dr. Carl Hill. Herbert West and his associate, Dan Cain are serving in a missonary clinic in South America. Herbert West has been using wounded soldiers as a means of further developing his formula. Suddenly they are bombarded by a bunch of enemy soldiers and they have to f…

Parents is a horror/dark comedy directed by Bob Balaban. I had heard about this film for years but I never got around to purchasing a copy. It stars Randy Quaid and Mary Beth Hurt as Father and Mother, two 1950s loving parents of their boy, Michael (Bryan Madorsky).
While I was expecting a more prevalent sense of humor throughout the film, I was still not disappointed. This film is surprisingly dark and disturbing and is most likely Randy Quaid's greatest performance of all-time. (No, it is most certainly not Christmas Vacation 2: Cousin Eddie's Island Adventure.)
The film captures the essence of what every child fears about their parents secrets. We can all remember the time our parents told us to eat our greens so we can be strong, or to sto…Read more >
I bought this film about six months ago and it had been sitting on my shelf amongst my other B-films ever since. I just now got around to watching this disgusting masterpiece and good god, it's amazing.
For those of you who have never heard of Street Trash, the film is about a society of homeless people living in a junkyard. The number of homeless people is never necessarily clear, but it's enough to have a few homeless mob scenes that are highly disturbing.
A local liquor store owner discovers an old box of wine or whiskey or something in his basement. The stuff is called Viper. He decides to go ahead and sell a whole bunch to the homeless people in the area for a dollar a bottle.
What makes Viper so different from the other liquors is the fa…Read more >
