Face-Off: Silent Rage vs. Hero and the Terror

Last week it was announced that the 1982 Chuck Norris film SILENT RAGE will be coming to Blu-ray courtesy of Mill Creek Entertainment, and that announcement instantly caught my attention because SILENT RAGE had quite an impact on my childhood. As a fan of both horror and martial arts movies, I loved watching Norris take on a slasher, and so I kept watching that movie, over and over again....

Face-Off: The Car vs. Christine

The goofball family film MONSTER TRUCKS, which is about trucks being powered by monstrous creatures, isn't really Arrow in the Head material and isn't exactly setting the box office on fire, but its release is responsible for inspiring this week's Face-Off, as it got me thinking about horror movies in which vehicles are powered by otherworldly forces. Specifically, it got me thinking about...

Face-Off: Psycho vs. Dressed to Kill

There have been a lot of characters with multiple personalities in the horror genre over the decades, and M. Night Shyamalan is adding another one into the mix with this weekend's release of SPLIT. With that film coming out, this seemed like the appropriate time to take a look back at perhaps the most popular film about split personalities in the genre, Alfred Hitchcock's 1960 classic PSYCHO ....

Face-Off: A New Beginning Tommy Jarvis vs. Jason Lives Tommy Jarvis

This Friday is a Friday the 13th, so it seemed fitting to make FRIDAY THE 13TH the theme for this week's Face-Off. Past FRIDAY THE 13TH Face-Offs have put movie against movie and given more attention to iconic slasher Jason Voorhees, but one aspect of the series that has been neglected are the heroes and heroines. Many fans consider Tommy Jarvis to be Jason's greatest foe - the character...

Face-Off: Resident Evil vs. Underworld

More than a decade ago, Paul W.S. Anderson and Len Wiseman both began franchises that center on badass female leads taking on various types of monsters - in 2002, Anderson dropped Milla Jovovich into a world inspired by the RESIDENT EVIL video game series, while Wiseman put Kate Beckinsale in the middle of a war between vampires and werewolves in 2003's UNDERWORLD . Jovovich and Beckinsale...

Face-Off: Terror Train vs. New Year's Evil

In just a few days, we'll be able to call it a wrap on a year that has been deeply disappointing for many of us in all sorts of ways. But even when there's a "good riddance" feel to the approaching end of the year, there's always one kind of entertainment that will help give my spirits a boost - slasher movies. While New Year's Eve isn't the most popular choice for a horror setting, there have...

Face-Off: Black Christmas Billy vs. Silent Night, Deadly Night Billy

Two Christmas-themed horror movies. Two killers named Billy. Two very different approaches to bringing these men and their crimes to the screen. While Bob Clark's 1974 film BLACK CHRISTMAS keeps its killer Billy shrouded in shadows and secrecy, Charles E. Sellier Jr.'s 1984 slasher SILENT NIGHT, DEADLY NIGHT was carried on the shoulders of its killer Billy. So in the end, which is the...

With the Christmas holiday approaching, 'tis the season to watch Joe Dante's classic 1984 creature feature GREMLINS . But of the two GREMLINS films, is the first the best?

Face-Off: Saint vs. Rare Exports

The month of December is now in full swing, which means it's time to start watching horror movies that have something to do with the upcoming holidays. My own viewings of holiday horrors began with a pair of movies that seemed to be good Face-Off candidates, as they both present a horrific take on the legend of Santa Claus: SAINT , directed by Dick Maas, and Jalmari Helander's RARE EXPORTS ....

Face-Off: The People Under the Stairs vs. Don't Breathe

The Fede Alvarez-directed, Sam Raimi-produced DON'T BREATHE , which I found to be incredibly intense, is now out on DVD and Blu-ray - you can order your copy HERE . If you haven't seen it yet, I need to give you a SPOILER warning before you start reading this Face-Off, because some of its secrets will be revealed below. There's no way to get around spilling a few details, because DON'T...

Face-Off: Attack of the Killer Tomatoes vs. The Stuff

It's the week of Thanksgiving in the United States, the time when we get together and chow down until our clothes tighten and our stomachs threaten to burst. As we're surrounded by all the savory foods and desserts, we don't usually have much more on our minds than how delicious that stuff is going to be as we gobble it down. We don't stop to think how dangerous food could be if it decided to...

Face-Off: They Live vs. Society

I'm not sure if you've noticed, but the presidential election was recently held in the United States. It was a long, tumultuous, exhausting build up to election day, and many couldn't wait for it all to be over with. A week later, we are still within that tumultuous time, so this seems like the appropriate week to take a look at John Carpenter's 1988 film THEY LIVE and Brian Yuzna's SOCIETY...
