Create your Killer – 2019 – horror/comedy short

I actually never saw create your killer before. But now that I found it on Bloody Fierce Prouctions youtube channel I couldn’t resist. It’s about what you can expect. It’s funny and witty but doesn’t have a dense plot. But in 7 or 8 minutes long so there’s really not much time to develop anything anyway. But what’s created in those short minutes is really all you need. You get a killer story with all...

Death Ship – 1980 – a nazi slasher?

I wasn’t really educated enough when I first saw Death Ship in 1980. I thought that the cover art was more or less stolen to the much newer horror flick Ghost Ship. It took me a while to realize that Ghost Ship is actually more or less a remake of Death Ship. I don’t know why it didn’t occur to me but it just didn’t. It’s so obvious now. Of course, the cover art alone...

Scream – 2022 aka Scream 5

Ok, so when the original Scream came out in 1996 I was twenty-six years old. That makes me older in 2022 when Scream came out again. I wasn’t too impressed by the original movie but all these years later, would I like this new take on the classic? It’s a really good question. I think that the way I view movies these days are a bit different. Back then I was disappointed that the movie...

Drive-In Massacre – 1976 – Surprisingly Good!

I really commend 88 Films for bringing these cult slashers to the public. It’s also obvious that the genre existed before John Carpenter made it famous in 1978 with his masterpiece Halloween. In this case, there might not be a masked killer and this is not a ‘boogeyman’ flick. I think those came later with franchises like Friday the 13th and Halloween. It is about an unknown killer though and no one is safe. Drive-In...

Scalps – 1983 – a desert slasher

The fun thing about slasher collections is that there’s always one or two that aren’t really up to par with the best of the genre. Scalps is such a movie. I don’t really understand what they thought about conceiving this. It’s a movie that goes all over the place, it contains all of the necessary elements for a slasher but it never delivers the goods properly. It’s bloody, there is a campfire and ghost stories...

Crossbones -2005 – A Pirate Slasher

If you’re like me and have several thousands of DVDs in your collection, you’re always happy to find something that you never heard of that might fit your preferences. In this case I found a pirate movie and thought I would add a nice adventure film to my collection. Crossbones isn’t that though. It may be disguised as one but it’s really not. Crossbones begins with a narrator telling us the backstory of this pirate...
