The mid-80’s were a tough time for a horror movie, it was a very crowded genre with a new release coming out almost every other week, or so it seemed. It took a lot for a movie to look different from the others, which all look alike after a while. One movie tried to be a little different and that was Sleepaway Camp. Those that have seen it, will always remember it for its shocking ending. It was well received enough to warrant sequels so the series continued on in the even more crowded direct to video market, though without series creator Robert Hiltzik. If you were the type of person looking for boobs and blood in your slasher, the new filmmakers were more than happy to help out with that. After the third film, the series went on a long hiatus until 2008 when the original creator came back to film the last film in the series to date. So click below to share in the strange glory that is the Sleepaway Camp series. Continue reading “Shaun vs. The Sleepaway Camp Series”
I've been a lover/hater of low budget filmmaking from an early age, always amazed by the types of films that got released, either theatrical or more likely direct to video, and I like to shine a spotlight on them for better or worse.

idea behind “Wishmaster” may not be the most original, but at least in the right hands it could be imaginative and entertaining. And it was! Unfortunately in the wrong hands, it can turn into a big turd. In this case, the series came out with three turds out of the four movies. I would imagine most people stopped paying attention to the series after the first or second, some may even be shocked to know that there are four of these things. What’s even more shocking is that they were even made to begin with. Yes, this will not be a fun venture, but fear not, at least you only have to read about them, I had to live through them.

Well, the movie seems to be about a man murdered by drug smuggling vampires then later turned into a cyborg who shotguns his way through the undead ranks and make sure the drugs stay out of America. At least that’s what I think it’s about. There are scenes like a Chinese ghost marrying a gorilla vampire mixed into the bunch so I really have to wonder whether the crack in the movie were real because whoever was making this movie was definitely using that to pad out the movie. Continue reading “Shaun vs. Robo Vampire (1988)”
