The Night of the Hunter (REVIEW)

During the Great Depression a desperate man murders two people and steals $10,000 from a bank so he can take care of his children. He hides the money where only his kids can find it, and then is executed later in prison. While he is awaiting his hanging he's forced to bunk with a deranged preacher who sees the man’s hidden money as an opportunity for himself.

Onibaba (Demon Woman) (REVIEW)

J-Horror is pretty well beaten into the ground by this point. With films like “Ringu”, “Ju-On” and “The Eye” spurring American remakes, sequels, sequels to the American remakes and blatant rip-offs, the genre is pretty much dead. Personally, I know if I have to review another film with that wet ghost girl with stringy hair I might just swear off horror films forever. But J-Horror wasn’t always about cell phones, video tapes or that goddamn ghost girl. There was a period of time when Japanese horror was something else entirely.

Rooms for Tourists (REVIEW)

A couple of months back I decided on a whim (not to mention a creeping deadline) to give one of those Redbox DVD machines a try. I was surprised at the fairly decent representation of horror titles, many of which I’d never heard of. I nearly took a bullet for the team and rented “The Devil’s Tomb”, but even the almighty tag-team of Ray Winstone, Ron Perlman and Bill Mosely can’t get me to intentionally watch a Cuba Gooding Jr movie.
