HORROR-A-DAY: Near Dark

HORROR-A-DAY: Near Dark

Near Dark “Near Dark” (1987), Directed by Kathryn Bigelow, Rated R At first I was a little hesitant to include this film on the list because I feel it's a little too well-known. Then I was walking through a store the other day where I saw merchandise for “New Moon“, the new Twilight film, prominently...
HORROR-A-DAY: Prince of Darkness

HORROR-A-DAY: Prince of Darkness

Prince of Darkness “Prince of Darkness” (1987), Directed by John Carpenter, Rated R I feel like I can’t make a horror film list without mentioning John Carpenter – it just isn’t possible. I mean…Halloween. The Thing. And, to a lesser extent…The Fog.  So, with this list’s theme being an appreciation for the lesser known, I’ve...
HORROR-A-DAY: Zombie

HORROR-A-DAY: Zombie

Zombie “Zombie“(1979), Directed by Lucio Fulci, Not Rated (equivalent of an X at the time it was released) “We Are Going To Eat You!” Okay, now we’re getting into the meaty (pun intended) stuff. This here film, an italian cheapie made as a “sequel” to DAWN OF THE DEAD, has become almost as legendary. Never...
HORROR-A-DAY: Wolfen

HORROR-A-DAY: Wolfen

Wolfen It seems that 1981 was a big year for werewolves on cinema screens. There were three high-profile releases that year: the previously mentioned “An American Werewolf in London,” Joe Dante’s “The Howling,” and this particular film, which was a high-profile studio release but did lukewarm business and pretty much vanished from the public’s consciousness....

HORROR-A-DAY: Tombs of the Blind Dead

Tombs of the Blind Dead “Tombs of the Blind Dead” (1971), Directed by Amando de Ossorio, Not Rated (equivalent to an R) Some of the films that I present on this list I will have just watched for the first time before I write about it. This is one such case. Tombs of the Blind...
HORROR-A-DAY: The Birds (Josh's Day Off)

HORROR-A-DAY: The Birds (Josh’s Day Off)

The Birds “The Birds” (1963) dir. Alfred Hitchcock Good day, everyone! Adam here.  Josh is taking today off, so I will providing you with your uncommon Horror Movie fix.  As far as Hitchcock goes, “Psycho” gets a lot more play than this gem, especially at Halloween time.  “Psycho” deserves every bit of credit coming to...
HORROR-A-DAY: The Bird with the Crystal Plumage

HORROR-A-DAY: The Bird with the Crystal Plumage

The Bird with the Crystal Plumage “The Bird with the Crystal Plumage” (1970), Directed by Dario Argento, Rated PG(!) Ah, the Italian giallo film. Quite a bizarre genre, and one that doesn’t receive much attention here in America outside of film geek circles. Why? Well, by and large, the giallo genre (or, more correctly, subgenre)...
HORROR-A-DAY: Martin

HORROR-A-DAY: Martin

narrative essay div> Martin MARTIN (1977), Directed by George A. Romero, Rated R George A. Romero = zombies. Right? Right. Wrong. I mean, I will give credit where credit is due — the man is responsible for creating the legendary Dead trilogy (the inferior films beyond those first three will receive no acknowledgement here), and...
Horror-A-Day: An American Werewolf in London

Horror-A-Day: An American Werewolf in London

An American Werewolf in London *ADAM’S NOTE: This is a DOUBLE recommendation from myself.  Take her away, Josh!– AN AMERICAN WEREWOLF IN LONDON (1981), Directed by John Landis, Rated R I can hear you guys now: “Rare?! How in the Sam Hill is this (awesome) movie RARE?!” It’s not. As a matter of fact, it’s...

Horror-A-Day: DEATHDREAM a.k.a DEAD OF NIGHT

DEATHDREAM aka DEAD OF NIGHT (1974), Directed by Bob Clark, Rated R Okay, now we’re getting back into the straight and narrow path of good ol’ horror. Here we have a film with quite a few official titles, such as...
