DARK ANGEL (1990)

Explosions, drug dealing, endorphin extracting, projectile weapons, and a high speed pursuit. And to think that coming in peace meant no violence whatsoever. One thing is certain: it's Christmas in Houston, and a psychopathic alien is on the loose, injecting non-junkies with heroin like there's no tomorrow. Sounds like a gift that keeps on giving,..

The Laughing Dead (1989)

There's nothing quite like a helping of Mayan madness, especially when it involves blood sacrifices, hotel hijinx, a head being tossed around à la hot potato, heart swapping, zombified locals, surreal situations, macabre merriment, and a priest getting mixed up with the god of death, all of which are present in The Laughing Dead. Odd..

It's not often that a detective meets his match, but when he does, you can bet that he'll be in over his head, or maybe I should say out of his mind? Either way, Scanner Cop II has enough mind-melting, smoldering skin, and vicious villainy to go around. Granted, it isn't much in terms of..

Evilspeak (1981)

I don't know about you, but all this computer calamity has left me wondering why it isn't more commonplace. I mean, sure, the likelihood of awakening demons by way of technological means is low, and yet the destruction on display is more compelling than the world's most reliable Internet connection. You have a scene wherein..

Blood Beat (1983)

What we have here is a movie that isn't afraid to be out-there; a movie that is so feverish that any attempt to make sense of it would leave you scratching your head. But you know what? I wouldn't have it any other way because Blood Beat is a lot like receiving a gift that..

Old Dracula (1974)

Funny how an ounce of new blood can make all the difference in the world, innit? Heh. Well, even if Dracula is no hematologist, he knows a thing or two when it comes to performing a transfusion, so you gotta give him credit where it's due. Not too much credit, though, because otherwise he'll give..
