3/4 64% Poultrygeist: Night of the Chicken Dead (2006) Kaufman is one of the last great trash filmmakers.‐ ESplatter

3/4 87% The Conqueror Worm (Witchfinder General) (2000) With no supernatural elements to speak of, it is as much an historical drama as a horror film.‐ ESplatter

3.5/4 53% Wolf Creek (2005) Despite the obvious influences of the original "Chainsaw," "Hills Have Eyes," "Last House," and other kidnap-terror films, you can't predict what is going to happen in this film.‐ ESplatter

3/4 78% Wrong Turn 2: Dead End (2007) This might be the best revenge-horror film in years.‐ ESplatter

4/4 83% Inside (À l'intérieur) (2007) I dare call 'Inside' a classic because it is such a damn good horror movie. It also happens to be one of the bloodiest things ever produced -- anywhere.‐ ESplatter

2.5/4 No Score Yet Eskalofrío (Shiver) (2008) Worth catching but not worth writing home to mother about.‐ ESplatter

3.5/4 58% Quarantine (2008) In some ways 'Quarantine' is better than 'Rec,' not only xeroxing all its shocks but managing to add more.‐ ESplatter

2.5/4 30% Hello Mary Lou: Prom Night II (1987) ... stacks up as a nice sleaze fest.‐ ESplatter

3/4 No Score Yet Dark Floors (2008) 'Dark Floors' manages to keep up the supsense for a good 90 minutes and close with a powerful, art-film ending.‐ ESplatter

4/4 69% Child's Play (1988) 'Child's Play' is one of the scariest movies ever.‐ ESplatter

3/4 89% The Baby (1973) ... the film has the look and feel of a TV cop drama, and a politically incorrect, outlandish storyline that couldn't be filmed today.‐ ESplatter

3/4 14% Mirrors (2008) Alexandre Aja proves once again that he is the best horror movie maker working today.‐ ESplatter

3/4 No Score Yet The Skull (1965) While the film drags in parts and can't be counted as a classic, it's a rock solid Amicus production and a must-see for fans of that studio's work.‐ ESplatter

4/4 88% Tales From the Crypt (1972) This film cannot be recommended enough.‐ ESplatter

3.5/4 No Score Yet Blood and Lace (1971) An awesome, unjustly unavailable early '70s horror film, ...This film's opening murder must have inspired John Carpenter, who filmed the first killing in Halloween in a similar way.‐ ESplatter

2/4 71% w Delta z (2006) 'The Killing Gene' feels like a film that was trying to be something else -- maybe a dark and bloody episode of 'The Wire.'‐ ESplatter

1.5/4 13% Book of Shadows - Blair Witch 2 (2000) This film was cranked out awfully fast.‐ ESplatter
Read More | Posted Aug 4, 2008
3/4 No Score Yet Bloody Birthday (1984) What the film lacks in story it makes up for with a high body count and plenty of gratuitous sex.‐ ESplatter
Read More | Posted Aug 4, 2008
4/4 86% The Blair Witch Project (1999) "Blair Witch" should go down in history as proof that it doesn't take a big budget to make a great movie, in fact it may not even take a budget at all.‐ ESplatter

3/4 40% The Black Cat (1981) This is a decent Fulci film, delivering all the sleaze and some of the splatter you can expect from the Italian goremeister.‐ ESplatter

3.5/4 91% L'uccello dalle piume di cristallo (The Bird With the Crystal Plumage) (1970) Those familiar with Argento's films should be able to see the groundwork that was being laid for later classics like "Deep Red" in this one.‐ ESplatter

2.5/4 45% Beyond Re-Animator (2003) This director's work has varied from the sublime ("The Dentist") to the awful ("Faust"). This lies somewhere in between, more toward the good than the bad.‐ ESplatter

3/4 No Score Yet Berserk (1967) This role actually seems to strangely mirror aspects of her own life, as chronicled in that kiss-and-tell autobiography by her adopted daughter.‐ ESplatter

1.5/4 No Score Yet Beneath Still Waters (2005) Not as horrible as some of the direct-to-DVD stuff hitting shelves, but a weak movie all the same.‐ ESplatter
Read More | Posted Aug 4, 2008
3/4 74% Behind the Mask: The Rise of Leslie Vernon (2006) A rather funny "Scream"-like cross between a mockumentary and a direct-to-video slasher movie, "Behind the Mask: The Rise of Leslie Vernon" is custom-made for horror fans, but it isn't remotely scary and people that aren't already steeped in the lore of t‐ ESplatter

3/4 40% And Soon the Darkness (1971) Some downplay the effectiveness of this film because of its slow pace. I find it only adds to the tension.‐ ESplatter
Read More | Posted Aug 4, 2008
2/4 60% And Now the Screaming Starts (1973) The film is suprisingly bloodless, considering the fact that it received an R rating, and despite the fact that a demon rape is part of the storyline, there's precious little skin.‐ ESplatter

2/4 No Score Yet Contamination (1980) The one saving grace of this film is the excellent score by Goblin.‐ ESplatter

3.5/4 86% The Abominable Dr. Phibes (1971) Director Fuest brings an enormous sense of art-deco style and grand guingol humor to the affair ...‐ ESplatter

3.5/4 83% The Candy Snatchers (1973) Not a classic, but an unjustly forgotten oldie from the golden age of violent exploitation ...‐ ESplatter

3/4 No Score Yet A Blade in the Dark (1983) Considering how low the budget obviously was, Bava does a great job crafting a classic giallo mystery. The film may even have inspired Wes Craven's "Scream 3," which was also a horror movie about the making of a horror movie.‐ ESplatter

1/4 7% Shutter (2008) ... the film feels like a made-for-TV movie.‐ ESplatter

3/4 40% All the Boys Love Mandy Lane (2013) The film is pretty good, but suffers a little bit from serious-itis.‐ ESplatter

4/4 87% Duel (1972) The film pits the awesome talents of Richard Matheson ... with Spielberg, delivering one of the best genre films of the past 50 years.‐ ESplatter

3/4 No Score Yet The Iron Rose (1973) Despite a non-existent budget and its lack of lesbian vampires, this film manages to deliver as much atmosphere as some of Rollin's best work.‐ ESplatter
Read More | Posted Jul 4, 2008
3.5/4 No Score Yet Nude Vampire (1969) "The Nude Vampire" is one of Rollins' best, although it shows that he was still learning his craft.‐ ESplatter

3/4 44% Hostel Part II (2007) This second film definitely shows Roth's absolute courage as a director. He didn't pull any punches with this follow up.‐ ESplatter
Read More | Posted Jul 3, 2008
3.75/4 61% Hostel (2006) Roth is able to change the focus from frolicking raunchiness to extreme chilliness in a way that's quite sobering.‐ ESplatter

3/4 49% The Hills Have Eyes (2006) Some say this remake is better than the original, but it ain't so.‐ ESplatter

33% Trapped Ashes (2006) Ultimately, I'd recommend this film for fans of anthology horror films, but it's far from a classic.‐ ESplatter
