Horrorfest 2022 Presents: Head of the Family (1996, Charles Band)


Head of the Family has some good comedic moments, yet as a horror movie it’s flat and not interesting enough. The mutants provide some entertainment, however I couldn’t give a hoot about the human characters whatsoever. Furthermore the movie seemed to be holding the viewer at arm’s length, possibly afraid no one would laugh at the jokes and daring people to care about this goofy movie. It doesn’t work, yet I didn’t hate this movie. I was just left disappointed.

Most of the truly captivating material happens in the last act, which doesn’t bode well for the rest of the movie. Charles Band has done much better work, check that stuff out instead. Viewed on Shudder because of, who else, Joe Bob Briggs, of course. I wonder if the sequel goes full camp all the way or not.

No Tweets, No Problems


Yeah but it was my hellsite. Once.

Maybe I would care more about Twitter suspending me over a tweet about fictional characters if other social media platforms didn’t exist. But they do and honestly I’m on pretty much all of them. I’ll miss getting followed by The Last Drive In crew and Sam Neil, yet the former are heavily on Instagram anyways. This also comes at a time when I’m trying to dodge Spider-Man movie spoilers and Twitter is rifled with those.

Also they fail to crack down on bots, obvious trolls and people who definitely give off the alt right Nazi vibe. Facebook sucks at that also and they’ve suspended me a couple times for jokes about white people. Hello, I’m white. Whatever. Sure I’ve filed multiple appeals that didn’t work and even had some crypto person tell me they could restore my account for a fee (um no I’m good). I did keep the backup account which Twitter forgot about even though it has my real name as my username for that one haha.

Maybe I’ll restart again but I spent 10 years on that site and didn’t even get past more than 1500 or 1600 followers. That’s pretty pathetic. Sorry to those who relied on me for likes and comments, yet I’m sure they’ll be fine. Anyways they can find me on five other apps so I think it’ll work out alright. Plus maybe I’ll actually use the time I would waste tweeting to focus on that giant movie backlog of mine. Which I’ll probably Instagram about.

Small Town, Big Secrets (Dead & Buried, 1981)


Originally written back in 2011 on an old blog, now reposted since the film was featured on The Last Drive In.

1981 really was a banner year for horror movies, primarily when it came to werewolves: An American Werewolf in London, Wolfen, and The Howling. From the writers of Alien, Dan O’ Bannon and Ronald Shusett, and the director of Raw Meat, Gary Sherman, came a lesser known and somewhat underrated flick called Dead & Buried. Just like Raw Meat and Strange Behavior, this film was quite different from much of the horror fare that was more commonly found in the genre at the time.

In fact, much of this movie has the feel of a lost 80s Twilight Zone episode, or a short story from some famous horror novelist. The small town of Potters Bluff, nestled in New England has some rather dark secrets. Primarily the fact that the residents kill off anyone who has the misfortune to stop by in the town, or just be passing through. Unlike some other films, this movie gets right to the point with that fact: the opening scene quickly descends into a crowd of locals burning a hapless victim alive.

Despite some clearly obvious cliches, Sherman and O’ Bannon/Shusett aim for a distinctive atmosphere that actually works. The characters themselves aren’t too well drawn out, but the local town corner and the in over his head sheriff are rather interesting people, and they help drive the film’s plot. Most of the kills are rather shocking due to the rather simple fact that ordinary people ganging up on you and murdering you with a smile and not even thinking twice is something straight out of many nightmares.

Naturally a film like this has to have some rather stark twists, and this one does not disappoint. Even though Dead & Buried has a couple of rather large plot holes, and the movie at times is sketchy, the twists and the movie being overall solid is enough to overcome those. And all things considered, this was really just a dry run for O’ Bannon’s 1985 cult classic Return of the Living Dead.

My Sister is a Werewolf (Ginger Snaps, 2000)


I originally wrote this review back in 2011 when I first saw Ginger Snaps. The Last Drive In prompted me to repost it here.

Even though there are women directors, when it comes the horror genre it has the feel of being largely dominated by men instead. So when a strongly feminist, women oriented movie such as Ginger Snaps comes along, people take notice. In this case the movie is quite possibly one of the best werewolf films ever made, taking some of that particular sub-genre’s mythology and using it to articulate ideas about adolescence, womanhood, and even growing up.

Two sisters who are incredibly close are the main focus here. Bridgette, the younger of the pair, and Ginger, the oldest, do not fit in at all. They are picked on in high school, misunderstood by their parents, and get in constant trouble with their teachers. So when Ginger is attacked by a werewolf, their problems only get considerably worse. Naturally Ginger denies that what tried to take a large chunk out of her arm was actually a person who turns into a hungry wolf creature when the moon is full, but B (as she is known) from the start is unconvinced.

Feeling left behind by Ginger completely turning into a different person, B turns to a fellow student for answers, who also happens to be the guy that made the previous creature roadkill. They quickly discover that the mythology they thought they knew is only half correct, and the girls find out that seeking a cure quickly becomes the least of their worries.

Its remarkable how quick things spin out of control in this movie, and the last act is rather freaky. There is a great deal of blood in this movie, maybe even more so than most horror movies, and despite the creature effects looking a bit fact its rather cool that the movie’s director choose to forgo CGI and roll with practical special effects and actual makeup. The movie’s unflinching use of gore is also quite notable, although not surprising considering that werewolves are usually a rather violent animistic bunch.

Driven by great acting from the two lead actresses Katharine Isabelle and Emily Perkins, a neverending sense of fear, and its femine take on werewolves, Ginger Snaps is a rather unique movie. Whether or not the film’s sequels are as good remains to be seen. Still, when it comes to the genre this is one of the better horror movies to be released in the past 20 years.

Horrorfest 2019 Presents: Jack Frost (1997, Michael Cooney)


There are times when I view a horror movie that is goofy, funny, and not at all scary yet I really like it anyways. In some cases the movie is dumb as hell and yet it has that rare charm that makes it hard to resist. In this case I am talking about Jack Frost, which incidentally was also featured on The Last Drive In’s Joe Bob’s Red Christmas marathon months later on Shudder. What a movie. If you want to see a serial killer turned into an evil murdering snowman, this is the movie for you! If you expect great intelligent cinema that teaches you something, this is not your movie. Sometimes I choose entertainment instead, and this is one of those times. Oh and Jack Frost is full of a bunch of character actors thrust into starring roles-people I have never heard of before, even if I might know them from somewhere else. Which is usually the case with horror movies.

This movie has more one liners than any Xmas based horror movie I have ever seen, and also they even made sequels. Will I attempt to track down the sequels at some point? Absolutely, even if they are terrible. I realized after enjoying Gremlins all these years that I rather like a good snow based horror movie, and there are just not enough of them in force today. Probably because ones such as Silent Night Deadly Night were driven out of the cinema by people mad that horror take aim at their sacred holiday traditions. Well that is a damn shame. Give me killer gremlins, evil snowman, psycho Santa’s, creepy phone calling wackos, and of course home alone kids battling evil home invaders. Horror should not be limited to the other three seasons when the forth season is perfect for such cinema.

MonsterVision Lives


last-drive-in-joe-bob-briggs-e1529942979473-530x278

Those poor kids today have no idea what it was like to have to use cable and local TV to see many cult films that never came to their area. Or enjoy drive in’s, something I have never been fortunate to expirence. Well for us who were around for the 1990s Joe Bob Briggs was the guide to numerous low budget cult classics every week on TNT’s MonsterVision. Even though there were commercials and some questionable footage had to be cut (often for time) there were also Drive-In totals, great trivia bits, and Briggs’ snappy commentary.

So when years after TNT axed MonsterVision, all of us fans were excited to hear that the streaming service Shudder had convinced Briggs to do one last (hopefully not) Drive In marathon show. Fittingly called The Last Drive-In, this was to be a 24 hour marathon hosted on Shudder from Friday night to Saturday night. This was a great idea, one that would allow us fans to also comment on Twitter during the marathon. In fact, I wrote this while enjoying one of the films shown, the freaky 1987 classic Hellraiser. Plus getting retweeted by Briggs on Twitter in real time is cool, a nice byproduct of social media.

Despite some issues with my Roku player and the Shudder app (something everyone else experienced) this was a success. Clearly the fans of Briggs still heavily exist, and the “Hey we broke Shudder” jokes were amusing despite having to deal with streaming issues. However it was all worth it, just to see Joe Bob Briggs on TV doing his thing all over again. I am glad that Ted Turner and overworked servers could not stop JBB from doing what he does best: introduce us to fun and interesting cinema. Joe Bob Briggs forever, indeed.
