All Cheerleaders Die (REVIEW)

"All Cheerleaders Must Die" is an odd film, made even more odd when you consider it came from Lucky Mckee, the same guy whose twisted mind created the cult classic "May" almost a decade ago.  Where the latter was a dark, sensitive, emotional look at a loner trying to survive without anyone to love her, "Cheerleaders" is a slick, vapid, sexed up slasher/monster movie seemingly straight out of the 80's.  Having not checked in on Mckee's career much over the last few years, I'm honestly not quite sure what to make of this sudden turn of events

5 Questions: Surrealist auteur Dante Tomaselli tells us about his nightmares

I've personally been a fan of Dante Tomaselli's bizarrely surreal indie horror films since I saw his first work, "Desecration" over a decade ago.  He's continued to release films over the years including my favorite of his, Horror, and his latest work Torture Chamber.  While checking in with him recently, I discovered

Ground Zero (REVIEW)

Ground Zero

Stop me if you’ve heard this one before. A laboratory gets broken into and an experimental virus is stolen. It gets ingested and turns its victims into animalistic zombies who crave human flesh…

Oh, you’ve seen that movie before? Several times, you say? That’s probably why, unless you have a burning desire to see it all over again, you can skip “Ground Zero.” Directed by Channing Lowe, this is a movie that offers no originality or new ideas on the “zombie outbreak” concept, instead relying on clichés and tired concepts.

The Download Horror (REVIEW)

The Download Horror

In my short tenure as film reviewer for Bloody Good Horror, I will say that writing this review for “The Download Horror” is the biggest challenge I’ve had so far. What can I say about this movie? On the one hand, it reminds me of the horror movies that we probably made when we were 15 years old with a cheap camera, a bucket of ketchup, and a bunch of friends. On the flip side, the creators of this movie aren’t 15 (at least I don’t think they are), and it’s just not a good movie. I mean... it is bad.

American Mary (REVIEW)

"American Mary" has been taking the horror world by storm lately, and it's easy to see why. It's directed by the "Soska Twins", Jen and Sylvia, a rising directing duo most known at this point for their dark horror comedy "Dead Hooker in a Trunk".

Excision (REVIEW)

“Excision” is a movie that defies categorization. It’s being marketed as a horror film, which, while that label is not entirely accurate, is understandable because the film contains a level of squishy gore and bodily fluids that isn’t typically seen outside of genre affairs. Some might argue that it’s more of a comedy. While it is true that mainstream comedies of the last few years have been incrementally edging up against the line between funny and disgusting, “Excision” gleefully charges past that line and dares the audience to laugh or blow chunks.

Playback (REVIEW)

Playback Image

“Playback” starts interestingly enough. A young man named Harlan Diehl walks around a country farmhouse with a video camera, filming recently slaughtered bodies (as we learn later, it’s Diehl’s adopted family being filmed and he’s the one who did the slaughtering). His camera then focuses on a little baby left untouched in the mayhem. Before we learn the reason for his murdering spree, however, he is gunned down by police officers. Would it surprise you to know that the baby survives?
