Battery, the


movie scene

The film was made on a mere budget of six thousand dollars and looks very impressive considering. The cinematography and framing by Christian Stella is a slight step above typical indie fare and has a nice sun soaked and rather artistic feel to it…

Dead Alive


movie scene

Back before he was some sort of corporate whipping boy on the company payroll who was hired to make generic blockbuster films Peter Jackson actually used to make decently crafted independent films that ranged from bad to good to decent (I’ll leave it up to you to decide which ones […]

Maggie


movie scene

Arnold in a zombie film! What more badass of a thing could you ask for? Jesus I’m so ecxited! Wait……what? It isn’t really a zombie film? Oh…..it’s more of a drama film that just happens to have zombies in it? Well does Arnold still get to kick any zombie ass? […]

Plague 2, the


movie scene

I put The Plague 2 on almost completely blind. I knew it had something to do with zombies and the familiar ground of “post-apocalypse” fiction; however, in all honesty, I have never seen the original The Plague so I had no idea what I was in for. I had a […]

Premutos: Lord of the Living Dead


movie scene

Premutos is by no means a great film or a pinnacle of the art, but goddamn if it isn’t satisfying. Premutos is the brainchild of German gore meister  Olaf Ittenbach; mostly known for the film the burning moon (which is also awesome in its own right). Premutos is basically Ittenbach […]

Quarantine


movie scene

I’ll come right out and tell you now that Quarantine is a hugely unnecessary film. This is one of those tricky little remakes that changes its name and then goes and replicates the original film so much as to make its own existence pointless. Quarantine is a remake of the […]

Rec 4: Apocalypse


Rec 4: Apocalypse scene

The fourth (and supposedly final) film in the Rec franchise is here. I’ve seen a lot of differing opinions on the series in general. I know a lot of people who love the first one and hate the rest, some who like the first two, some who like the whole […]

Train to Busan


train to busan

Train to Busan is one of the more recent entries in the highly populated horror sub-genre of zombie outbreak/virus/infected people films. This one comes to us from far across the ocean from the land of perpetual sunlight and happiness AKA South Korea. I’ll be the first to admit that I’m […]

Zombeavers


Zombeavers! Funny right? I admit that it is clever (right up there with zombees or zombeagles) however it can be hard to stretch a little one note joke like that into a feature length film. Horror comedy is a hard genre to pull off; it’s entirely a balancing act that […]

Zombie


zombie

First off, I don’t care what you want to call it; Zombi, Zombie, Zombi 2, Island of the Living Dead, Nightmare Island, etc….. I’m going to call it Zombie, no matter what you call it though, it’s just as awesome. The film was directed by the late great goremaster Lucio […]
