Blu-ray Review: ‘The Unborn’!

by Gumbercules9000 on Oct 3rd, 2018

There is a fun horror sub-genre about pregnancy and demonic babies. In 1991, a film called ‘The Unborn‘ was added to that list and could be compared somewhat to ‘It’s Alive‘ and ‘Rosemary’s Baby‘. What’s crazy about this movie is the amount of talent involved before they were A-List. This is filmmaker Rodman Flender’s first film who went on to make a ton of horror movies and TV shows such as ‘The Office‘, ‘Arli$$‘, and ‘Leprechaun 2‘. It was produced by Roger Corman, starred a young Lisa Kudrow, with cinematographer Wally Pfister, who went on to lens all of Christopher Nolan’s movies, including the ‘Dark Knight‘ trilogy. It’s crazy, I know.

Blu-ray Review: ‘The Tingler’!

by Gumbercules9000 on Oct 3rd, 2018

Gimmicks used to be a huge thing in horror movies back in the 1950s. They were used all the time in these low budget horror films to conjure up scares, word-of-mouth, and good publicity to sell a movie that wasn’t necessarily any good. In 1959, filmmaker William Castle (House on Haunted Hill, 13 Ghosts) was a pioneer in using these gimmicks. He was known for paying actors to attend movie screenings and scream and or faint during the film to cause a stir. In House on Haunted Hill, Castle rigged a fake skeleton to fly through actual movie theaters to scare the audience. He was a genius for sure, way ahead of his time. In 1959 though, he made a film called ‘The Tingler‘, which starred Vincent Price. His gimmick for this film was to use some of the budget to attach buzzers to theater seats to simulate scares and screams at certain moments in the movie. It worked perfectly and this is the type of movie where this gimmick succeeds.

Film Review: mother!

by Gumbercules9000 on Sep 13th, 2017

Hi everyone, Bryan here….

It’s been proven over the last two decades that filmmaker Darren Aronofsky makes movies his own way. He doesn’t bow down to Hollywood execs and never makes movies for the masses. Most people would fail with this tactic, but with Aronofsky, he wins awards and is met with critical acclaim. With films like Pi, Requiem for a Dream, Black Swan, and The Wrestler (I won’t mention Noah) – you can tell that Aronofsky doesn’t make tightly wrapped, happy movies with pretty little bows on them. I commend him for this, because he’s doing something that nobody else is doing.

Hey guys, Jana here,

For the inaugural event of Wizard World’s Comic Con in Tulsa, Oklahoma, the guests were in abundance. I was extremely excited to sit in on a panel Q&A by Robert Englund. Before Englund took the stage, the audience got a special teaser for his newest film, ‘Fear Clinic‘. The film which doesn’t open until February of 2015 can be seen earlier if you are fortunate enough to be able to attend NYC HorrorFest where ‘Fear Clinic‘ will be the official opener.

Film Review: ‘Innocence’!!

by Gumbercules9000 on Sep 5th, 2014

Hi everyone, Bryan Here….

1280x720-9xm

I admit it. I’m a complete sucker for the supernatural horror genre. I love fully engrossing myself in the wake of these ghost and demonic stories. Even though this is the one genre that has me leaving my turtle night light on at night, I can’t help myself but watching every single film I can, relating to the supernatural. So I was pleasantly surprised to see a slow burning horror film from writer-director Hilary Brougher give us a unique take on this particular variety of film. Based off of Jane Mendelsohn’s novel of the same name and with the help of writer Tristine Skyler, Brougher and Skyler deliver some very creepy moments, despite an over-the-top third act in this horror-drama genre film called ‘Innocence‘.
