Bloody Moon   BloodyMoon Keyart severin 85x120 reviews horror Director: Jess Franco
Writer: Erich Tomek
Release year: 1981
German Title: Die Säge des Todes

If only every slasher film had a stone mill saw at its disposal.

A boarding school is plagued by grisly murders. Cult director Jess Franco, with his inimitable ways of poor or artistic taste – you be the judge of that – gives us his take on the late 70′s/early 80′s whodunit slasher format.

Dead People    MessiahofEvil 73x120 full length movies Director: Willard Huyck

A.k.a.: Messiah of Evil

In order to live, they will take you one by one … and no one will hear you scream!

A woman in search of her father arrives in a strange town with the help of his increasingly disturbing letters.  I won’t spoil anything by saying this is a zombie film, but it’s not your run of the mill fast-paced zombie horror either. But that isn’t a bad thing.

The Howl

The Howl   lurlo 82x120 reviews drama Director: Tinto Brass
Writer: Tinto Brass, Gian Carlo Fusco, Franco Longo and Gigi Proietti
Release year: 1970
Italian title: L’Urlo

Interesting to watch.

Director Tinto Brass has created a film that I will never, to my last dying breath, ever understand. This is pegged as a “surreal cult classic” and it most surely was surreal and has enough bizarre and incredibly sensational scenes full of artistic shots. In addition, a warped scenario featuring random mind-fuck sets in which I truly had no idea what the hell was going on. Seriously, Brass himself could explain each scene as I viewed it and I would still never “get it”.
