4/5 72% Stuck (2008) "Fans who like their films darkly humorous and filled with scathing social commentary (both subtle and obvious) should find Stuck to their liking. " ‐ The Horror Geek
Posted Apr 26, 2009
3/5 88% Adventureland (2009) "There are some funny moments in Adventureland (most of them in the first half). None of them are of the "laugh uncontrollably" variety, but the chuckles are there. " ‐ ToxicUniverse.com
Posted Apr 3, 2009
3/5 17% The Haunting in Connecticut (2009) "The Haunting in Connecticut is never particularly scary--making it a horror film for people who don't really like horror films. " ‐ The Horror Geek
Posted Mar 27, 2009
3/5 41% The Last House on the Left (2009) "Last House on the Left stands as the second Craven remake where the new filmmaker manages to get more right than wrong. " ‐ The Horror Geek
Posted Mar 13, 2009
3/5 No Score Yet Dead in Three Days (In 3 Tagen bist du tot) (2007) "Dead in 3 Days isn't a particularly effective genre film, but it is more interesting than the DVD cover description would lead you to believe. " ‐ The Horror Geek
Posted Mar 8, 2009
3/5 No Score Yet Attack Girls Swim Team vs the Unliving Dead (2008) "It's no Tokyo Gore Police, but it gets the job done when you just wanna kick back and watch Asian chicks simulate sex between bouts of zombie slaughtering mayhem. " ‐ The Horror Geek
Posted Mar 6, 2009
4/5 69% Late Bloomer (2004) "The Japanese have a gift for making uncomfortable (yet compellingly watchable) films, and Go Shibata's Late Bloomer might be the best of the bunch. " ‐ Mike Bracken's Horror Films
Posted Mar 2, 2009
4/5 40% My Name Is Bruce (2007) "My Name is Bruce is not only a movie-it's also a celebration of the cult of Bruce Campbell. " ‐ Mike Bracken's Horror Films
Posted Feb 26, 2009
1/5 No Score Yet Against the Dark (2009) "A paunchy and bored looking Seagal (who's barely in the movie) fights generic vampire-zombies. Not nearly as cool as it sounds. " ‐ Mike Bracken's Horror Films
Posted Feb 25, 2009
4/5 100% Alien Raiders (2009) "Those who get past the lame title will be rewarded with one of the better low budget horror/sci-fi films to turn up in the past few years. " ‐ Mike Bracken's Horror Films

3/5 25% Friday the 13th (2009) "Could it really be worse than Friday the 13th: Jason Takes Manhattan? " ‐ Mike Bracken's Horror Films
Posted Feb 15, 2009
4/5 No Score Yet His Name Was Jason: 30 Years of Friday the 13th (2009) "A fun, if somewhat lighthearted, look at how the Friday the 13th franchise continues to endure even after three decades of slaughter. " ‐ Mike Bracken's Horror Films
Posted Feb 8, 2009
3/5 No Score Yet Midnight Movie (2008) "Midnight Movie is an entertaining piece of low-budget slasher cinema that succeeds despite some problems. " ‐ Mike Bracken's Horror Films
Posted Feb 6, 2009
2/5 50% Donkey Punch (2008) "Donkey Punch opens strong, but loses its way at the first major plot point. A potentially intriguing thriller devolves into a generic "last man standing" movie that borrows liberally from better films. " ‐ Mike Bracken's Horror Films
Posted Jan 29, 2009
3/5 29% Underworld: The Rise of the Lycans (2009) "Not deep or particularly good, Underworld: Rise of the Lycans is the kind of innocuous fluff that will appeal to fans of the earlier entries. Everyone else can safely skip it. " ‐ Mike Bracken's Horror Films
Posted Jan 23, 2009
4/5 57% My Bloody Valentine 3-D (2009) "My Bloody Valentine is a fun throwback to the golden era of slasher movies--packed with gore, nudity, and the classic gimmick of 3D. " ‐ Mike Bracken's Horror Films
Posted Jan 18, 2009
5/5 90% Tôkyô Zankoku Keisatsu (Tokyo Gore Police) (2008) "Tokyo Gore Police is sure to be one of the best cult films of 2009. Fans of Versus and Machine Girl will want to check this out. " ‐ Mike Bracken's Horror Films
Posted Jan 15, 2009
3/5 No Score Yet Joy Ride 2: Dead Ahead (2008) "Joy Ride 2: Dead Ahead isn't as good as its predecessor, but manages to entertain almost in spite of itself. " ‐ Mike Bracken's Horror Films
Posted Jan 8, 2009
3/5 No Score Yet Dead Space: Downfall (2008) "Dead Space isn't particularly original, but fans of the game should find this animated prequel engaging. " ‐ Mike Bracken's Horror Films
Posted Dec 8, 2008
3/5 56% Sukiyaki Western Django (2008) "Sukiyaki Western Django is a far-east-meets-western that could have only sprung from the mind of Takashi Miike. " ‐ Mike Bracken's Horror Films
Posted Dec 3, 2008
2/5 No Score Yet The Last House in the Woods (2008) "Last House in the Woods is a throwback to the days when Italian horror was a vital component of the cinematic horror universe, but it works better as an homage than an actual movie. " ‐ Mike Bracken's Horror Films
Posted Nov 22, 2008
4/5 71% The Midnight Meat Train (2008) "The Midnight Meat Train is a real horror film-one filled with dark imagery, disturbing violence, and an ever-present sense of dread. " ‐ Mike Bracken's Horror Films
Posted Nov 12, 2008
1/5 0% House (2008) "House wears its religion on its sleeve-and like the pushiest Jehovah's Witnesses, it's going to try and convert you to its cause come hell or high water. " ‐ Mike Bracken's Horror Films
Posted Nov 8, 2008
3/5 39% Zombie Strippers (2008) "Unfortunately for fans of the burgeoning "walking dead eat the patrons of the champagne room" subgenre, Zombie Strippers never manages to become the classic of this particular cinematic movement. " ‐ Mike Bracken's Horror Films

Posted Oct 31, 2008
5/5 70% Red (2008) "Red is the best Ketchum adaptation to date, just edging out The Girl Next Door. It earns this achievement thanks to Brian Cox's amazing performance. " ‐ Flipside Movie Emporium
Posted Oct 30, 2008
2/5 No Score Yet Trailer Park of Terror (2008) "Trailer Park of Terror never manages to find the balance between humor and horror--but it does give it the old college try. " ‐ Mike Bracken's Horror Films
Posted Oct 27, 2008
2/5 12% Saw V (2008) "About the only thing that really interested me about Saw V was the fact that it shares this odd parallel relationship to the fifth installment of Friday the 13th. " ‐ Mike Bracken's Horror Films

Posted Sep 12, 2008
4/5 No Score Yet Gusha no bindume (Hellevator)(Gusher No Binds Me)(The Bottled Fools) (2004) "Hellevator may have a stupid title, but the end product is plays like a Japanese version of Cube reimagined by Shinya Tsukamoto. " ‐ Mike Bracken's Horror Films
