For the six of you who enjoyed the last one, here’s part two of my coverage of the Leprechaun series before getting into the recently released reboot, Leprechaun: Origins. Click below to see just how crazy the series becomes as the filmmakers come up with new places to drop the Leprechaun. There was a brief trend of putting horror characters in outer space…Jason was up there, Pinhead was up there, why not a Leprechaun? But then he makes his way back to Earth in back to back films taking place in urban ghettos getting his freak on with plenty of weed smoking, rap music and hoes. You wouldn’t think there’d be this much mileage in a killer leprechaun franchise, but here we are with parts 4-6!
To celebrate the release of the reboot of the Leprechaun franchise, here’s the first part of the original series starring Warwick Davis as an evil little leprechaun who goes to great lengths to protect his gold from those who would be greedy enough to steal it. He starts off by arriving in North Dakota to scare the hell out of Jennifer Aniston in her film debut. He moves on to Los Angeles to find a bride then winds up in Vegas to party down with the rest of the greedy bastards there. Continue reading “Shaun vs. Leprechaun (Part 1)”
Come and listen to a story about a man named Mick
Following his girlfriend to a town full of hicks
Then one day a storm knocked down some power lines
And up through the ground came a bubblin worms.
Ladies and gentlemen, I bring you one of the worst movies ever! Does it look like Friday the 13th to you? The filmmakers sure hope so, cause they practically rip off that series from the hockey mask to the crazy old man who warns everyone. What it doesn’t rip off are the inventive kills and any sense of dread since it’s mostly bloodless and filmed in the daytime. Yeah, it sucks. Continue reading “Shaun vs. Bloody Murder (2000)”
What happens when you mix toxic waste with slugs? Slightly larger than normal slugs, which may not be a big issue if it weren’t for the fact that this breed is also carnivorous meat eaters with a sudden fascination for human flesh. It’s not so bad since you can just step on them, but when there’s a million of them coming up through toilets like Ghoulies, I think I’d rather just move to another town.

If you ever imagined Johnny 5 from Short Circuit going crazy working as a mall cop, this may be the movie you’re looking for! Ah, the 80’s…where we dared to dream about the future…of mall security. The movie is really about a group of mall security droids that go haywire and have urges to kill the unfortunate teenage mall employees who decide to have a sleepover that very same night. What a crazy coincidence!
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”

Travelling far, far away from a deluxe apartment on the west side away from Weezie, Sherman Hemsley plays one half of a duo of police officers sent to serve an eviction notice at a supposedly haunted house owned by a vampire. Do vampires live in haunted houses? I guess this one does. I got a fever and the only prescription is a better movie.
