The Last Exorcism (REVIEW)

The Last Exorcism

Daniel Stamm, director of "The Last Exorcism," must have missed the Hollywood-wide bulletin that 3-D was the new gimmick of choice for genre filmmakers. In "Exorcism," Stamm instead turns to first person perspective to weave his tale -- a choice that is just so 2008. Luckily, it's also a choice that helps make a small, low wattage horror movie more than the sum of its seemingly pedestrian parts.

Trailer: "Death Metal: Are We Watching You Die?"

I'm a sucker for any sort of documentary having to do with metal. I'll watch just about any crap if you put the world "Metal" in the title. Bonus points if you can also get some black metal guys in corpse paint in there for fun. I eat that crap up.

Aileen Wuornos: The Life and Death of a Serial Killer (REVIEW)

Anyone who has spent time browsing the annals of serial killerdom knows that female serial killers are a rare breed compared to their male counterparts. That said there are some pretty nasty death maidens throughout history like, “The Vampire of Barcelona”, Amelia Dyer “The Baby Farmer”, and “La Mataviejitas”. The uncontested rock star of the category is Aileen Wournos. While the term rock star may seem a tad cheeky, you are a better person than me if you can put Aileen’s eerie resemblance to a certain Motor city Madman out of your mind while watching her interviews.

Not Quite Hollywood (REVIEW)

I like to think I know a thing or two about genre films. Those of you reading this site probably do too, considering that you could throw a rock on the internet and (once you’ve replaced your busted monitor) you could find dozens of genre film reviews. It’s with utmost humility, then, that I have to admit to you dear readers that I have just discovered a massive blind spot in my genre credentials. I don’t know crap about Ozploitation.

Not Your Typical Bigfoot Movie (REVIEW)

Cryptozoologists have been searching the forests of North America for definitive proof of the existence of Bigfoot for years. It turns out they could have saved their time because Dallas Gilbert and Wayne Burton, two amateur Bigfoot hunters from Appalachian Ohio, have not just seen the creature once or twice but have taken hundreds of photos and videos of Bigfoot and his whole family.

Horror Doc "Cropsey" Searches For Urban Legend

A documentary that has been making the film festival rounds, “Cropsey” tries to uncover the shred of truth behind a local urban legend only to find out there is more truth to the legend than at first believed. The two filmmakers, Joshua Zeman and Barbara Brancaccio, hone in on the local legend of Cropsey, a supposed escaped mental patient who abducted children. By investigating the disappearance of five missing children, they try to follow the descent of truth into myth in their hometown of Staten Island.

"Never Sleep Again:The Elm Street Legacy" Teaser Trailer

The trinity is complete. Now that Michael and Jason have been given another go in the remake realm, it's Freddy's turn and here to taunt and titillate is a teaser for a Nightmare on Elm Street documentary "Never Sleep Again: The Elm Street Legacy."

Daniel Farrands, director of the Friday the 13th documentary "His Name was Jason: 30 Years of Friday the 13th" returns to bring us "Never Sleep Again:The Elm Street Legacy" which promises to be a thorough look at Freddy's history.

"Wreckage of My Past" Trailer

Watch it here!

That's the trailer for "Wreckage of My Past," the forthcoming documentary about the life, times and experiences of Ozzy Osbourne. Looks interesting, though I can't help but feel from the way it's presented that it likely lionizes Ozzy quite a bit. It's being produced by Sharon and Jack Osbourne, so I suppose I should've expected as much. Even so, it might be a worthwhile viewing, as Ozzy has certainly lived an interesting life.

"The Psycho Legacy" Trailer

Do you like the film franchise "Psycho?" Do you like 90 minute documentaries with over 3 hours of bonus features? Are you looking for a snappy way to celebrate the movie's 50th anniversary?
