Phenomena (1985)

  About 15 years ago I discovered Dario Argento. I remember I was hanging out at my girlfriend’s house (she’s now my wife), and I was watching one of her cable channels I didn’t have. It was a horror marathon hosted by Tom Savini. He was showing Suspiria and had interviews with Argento and trivia […]

A Cat in the Brain (1990)

The first time I saw A Cat in the Brain was when Grindhouse originally released the movie on DVD. A friend of mine had it and despite having only seen one or two Fulci flicks I was eager to dive in. We both sat mouths agape at what we saw. Truly a spectacle to behold […]

What Have You Done To Solange? (1972)

About a decade ago (has it been that long?!) I went on a giallo binge. I looked up lists online and tried to knock out the best of the best. I remembered watching this flick and not having my socks blown when I saw it. When I got the Blu it was great timing, I […]

Pieces (1982)

When I was a kid roaming the aisles of my local mom & pop video store I used to always look at Pieces. It had some very provocative cover art that suggested it was gory, filled with nudity, and the box proclaimed You don’t have to go to Texas to have a Chainsaw Massacre! Talk […]

Splintered Visions (2015)

In that annals of horror cinema Lucio Fulci is a giant name when it comes to sleaze and gore. For many of us he is the first touchstone into the wild word of Eurohorror, led there by promises of uncompromising vision and boat loads of red stuff. From there the world of Eurohorror and more […]

Your Vice is a Locked Room and Only I Have the Key (1972)

The second film in the deluxe boxed Black Cat set from Arrow Films is a giallo with a most wonderful title. Your Vice is a Locked Room and Only I Have the Key (1972), might just be the longest title of a giallo that has ever existed. I’m not a scholar on the subject but […]

Giallo Meltdown (2015)

It’s been awhile since I’ve watched any giallo films in earnest. For a while, I couldn’t get enough but after seeing a few misfires in a row I suppose I moved on to other interests. Author Richard Glenn Schmidt did not. His obsession with gialli is like an ever burning flame and that flame can […]

Fang of Joy #2

About a year ago I snagged myself a copy of Fang of Joy #1, reviewed here, and really enjoyed it. An American zine that focuses exclusively on Eurohorror, it fills a great niche of interest and does so with humor and wit. I’ve been waiting patiently for number 2 to come out and was super […]

Death Occurred Last Night (1970)

When it comes to classic Italian cinema, I only have a cursory knowledge. I’ve seen all the Argentos and Fulcis, a handful of the Martinos and Lenzis, a smattering of Bava (father & son), and bits and pieces of other film makers canons. I enjoy Italian horror, giallos, and crime films but honestly they are […]

The Girl in Room 2A (1973)

The world of Mondo Macabro is still alive and kicking, and they continue to bring funky rare flicks for us film fanatics. A newish release, the cult Italian/US film The Girl in Room 2A is indeed a rare one. The world of Eurohorror is one less often ventured here in the States. We’ve always had […]
