Stake Land (2011)

The press materials for Jim Mickle's Stake Land reference author Richard Matheson, but only insofar as it includes a kind of cross between vampires and zombies, as Matheson employed for his great novel I Am Legend. Otherwise, Stake Land starts off as a kind of very serious, dreary version of Zombieland. A naive teen (Connor Paolo) joins up with a grizzled hardass called "Mister" (Nick Damici, who co-wrote the script), who teaches the youngster how to kill the ravenous beasties. They keep traveling north, hoping to run into some kind of haven, and pick up the usual batch of misfits (including Top Gun's Kelly McGillis) along the way. It's all fairly typical. What sets this movie apart, however, is the appearance of a bizarre religious cult that could be more dangerous than the monsters. If only it had gone farther...

Bride of Chucky (1998)

The talking doll Chucky, voiced by Brad Dourif, was the killer in the Child's Play slasher series, one of many that ran out of steam. But in the late 1990s the series became more playful with Bride of Chucky (1998). Oscar-nominee Jennifer Tilly plays Tiffany, an ex-girlfriend of Chucky's former human self, who is killed and turned into another doll. Chucky and Tiffany hit the road with a young couple, hoping to take over their human bodies, and wind up on another bloody killing spree. Amazingly, Hong Kong action director Ronny Yu (The Bride with White Hair) was hired to direct this, and he brings a slick, kinetic, cartoonish energy to the proceedings. Yu went on to direct another slasher sequel, Freddy vs. Jason (2003). read more...

Prevenge (2017)

Filmed partly in Wales, this Shudder exclusive is enjoying a 2017 theatrical release, but subscribers can see it from the comfort of their couches. Not that this is a comforting movie, although it is frequently quite funny, in an extremely dark way. Actress Alice Lowe apparently conceived (no pun intended) the idea when she was pregnant, and ended up writing, directing, and starring in the final result, Prevenge. She plays Ruth, a very pregnant woman whose partner died in a mountain climbing accident; Lowe visually equates the red climbing ropes with blood-filled veins and umbilical cords, connections to life. Now, distraught, she visits a midwife that says her baby is in charge. So Ruth begins listening to her baby's sinister, high-pitched voice, as it urges her to kill. read more...

All Cheerleaders Die (2014)

Director Lucky McKee made a most auspicious horror debut with the wonderful May (2002), but he has tumbled a long way down with All Cheerleaders Die, which is based on his early short film, and is co-directed with Chris Sivertson (I Know Who Killed Me). Some have seen this movie as a sly satire on the lowly roles of women in horror films, but at the same time, it's actually a horror movie about women occupying those same roles. read more...

Beyond Re-Animator (2003)

This perfunctory sequel, the third, and (so far) final in the Re-Animator series, takes place thirteen years after Bride of Re-Animator (1990). Dr. Herbert West (Jeffrey Combs) is serving time in jail for his crimes against humanity. A little kid from 1990 has now grown up to become Dr. Howard Phillips (Jason Barry). He has asked to be transferred to the prison's hospital, and requested to have West as his assistant. The idea is to begin work anew on West's glowing green re-animation formula. This time, however, West has developed a way to extract a living being's "essence" and inject it into one of his re-animated zombies, thereby giving the re-animated victim something like a "soul" (although West wouldn't call it that). read more...
