Stag Night of the Dead (2010) Original Release Date: October 31, 2010 (online only; DVD release TBA) Run Time: 81 minutes Please welcome the newest member of the “Best Title Ever” department: “Stag Night of the Dead!” (It also scores very high in the “Best Tag Line Ever” category, although for me, the primary “Six […]

G.O.R.E. Score: Night of the Comet

Original Release Date: November 16, 1984 Run Time: 95 minutes “Night of the Comet” is a very unique movie. To the average viewer, it probably appears to be just another kitschy ‘80s horror film. But for those select viewers “in the know” about this movie’s director, Thom Eberhardt, and what his true intentions were in […]

G.O.R.E. Score: The Plague

Original Release Date: September 5, 2006 Run Time: 88 minutes This past weekend I was on a trip back to my hometown, Ft. Wayne, IN, a town situated about two hours northeast of Indianapolis.

The tale is not as focused on the actual apocalypse or what happens because of the apocalypse, but rather what happens in spite of the apocalypse. This idea for the direction of the movie […]

G.O.R.E. Score: Undead or Alive

Original Release Date: March 15, 2007 Run Time: 91 minutes It’s clear that the folks who made “Undead or Alive” knew that their movie wasn’t going to win any major awards, and they seem to have made their movie while keeping that knowledge in mind. This is probably one of the best things that could […]

G.O.R.E. Score: Night of the Living Dead 3D

Original Release Date: April 26, 2007 Run Time: 80 minutes “Night of the Living Dead 3D” is hilarious. Too bad it wasn’t trying to be intentionally so. Oh, where to begin. “NotLD 3D” is an amazingly weak movie in almost every facet. It does nothing to establish itself as a “remake” of the classic NotLD, […]
