Original Vs. Remake: I Spit On Your Grave

Of course, everyone cheerfully agreed with the outcome of our last holiday Original Vs. Remake where 1974's classic Black Christmas easily took out its infamous remake. I was glad to see that while the vast majority knew that the original would win, many still didn't mind giving some cheesy props to the crazy gory, yet still strangely fun, remake. For today's O vs. R we are getting...

Halloween (1978)- Horror Movie Review- (Day 31 of 31)- October Massacre

PLOT:  Halloween starts in first person POV as a big boobed teen is murdered by a clown-costumed kid, a young Michael Myers. Fifteen years later, dorky teen Laurie Strode (Jamie Lee Curtis) prepares for yet another lackluster Halloween by babysitting while all her friends engage in typical horror movie teen activity (that's sex). At the same time, Michael...

Today we're looking at this scene from JAWS 2...

Kill of the Day: Damien: Omen II (1978)

It's safe to say DAMIEN: OMEN II is a pretty forgettable sequel, right? Well it's tough to follow up a flick like THE OMEN. One thing DAMIEN has going for it though - it's death scenes! I'm talking about one scene in particular where this woman gets her eyes pecked out by a crow. But that's not all! She then stumbles out onto the highway and gets creamed by a semi. Harsh stuff. Love it!...

Face-Off: The Stepford Wives Vs. Invasion of the Body Snatchers '78

It seemed that we were all on the same Chucky page with our last Face-Off , agreeing that Child's Play 2 was the better sequel over Child's Play 3. Nicely played! Today's Face-Off comes at you courtesy of being inspired by Edgar Wright's closing chapter in the Cornetto Trilogy, The World's End, which has a bit of an "evil double of people" spin to it. Plus, I'm working in a bit of a...
