Pet Sematary II – Quickie Review

I only ever found the original film passable at best. This is a pretty weak follow-up. Edward Furlong is reliably awful. More gore than the first, but it’s also guilty of having more bore. There is only one reason to ever watch this film. The inspired and amusing performance of Clancy Brown.

Vagrant, The – Quickie Review: 31 Nights Of Horror – Day 14 / Film #2

Over-the-top campy, horror-comedy about a man who is being terrorizes in his new house by an invading hobo starring cult favourites Bill Paxton and Michael Ironside as well as Kuato as title character.

Dr. Giggles – Quickie Review

Brain Donors – Quickie Review

A very funny movie in the tradition of the Marx Brothers. John Turturro is fantastic in the Groucho inspired role. Rapid fire jokes and sight gags elevate this move. Not all jokes hit, but there are far more hits than misses. The opening credit sequence is awesome, but an obvious ploy to pad the running …
