The Creep Behind the Camera (2017)

Before I get into the review proper for this one it’s important to point out that this film is based on the making of The Creeping Terror. For those that don’t know (I didn’t), the Creeping Terror was a super cheap monster movie released in 1964 and quickly forgotten until in 1993 Mystery Science Theater […]

Death By Umbrella (2016)

I love film. I love books. So I love film related books. Whether they are biographies, histories, or reference guides, I’ve got a stack of them and love learning about the broad and strange world of film from across the globe and across time. Rare is the book that crosses my path that doesn’t easily […]

Slasher Films (2003)

Slasher films are as integral to the history of horror as peanut butter is on a PB & J. As horror fans we’ve all seen a boat load and would probably watch a tanker full. They are a bridge that leads from gialli and nasty drive-in fare to the supernatural special effects spectaculars that dominated […]

A Critical History and Filmography of Toho’s Godzilla Series, 2d ed (2010)

I don’t remember the first Godzilla movie i ever watched. I feel like it must have been at a time in my life before solid memories were formed. I’m sure i first saw one of the films as a very young child on TV. He became a part of my DNA. I have always known […]

Creature Feature: Nature Turned Nasty In The Movies (2014)

Growing up as movie obsessed youth I cut my teeth on Harryhausen dynamation epics, action movies, and whatever monster flick my folks would let me put my hands on. As I grew older I moved on to more grotesque films and pursued the goriest of the gory and the most over the top action films […]

So Bad, It’s Good (2012)

Every week I host a Bad Movie night in my small town. When I say Bad Movie, I mean movies that are hilarious, action packed and buckets of fun to watch. I don’t mean boring, which to my mind is the only truly bad film out there. Mediocrity is bad, having no budget or talent […]

Curtains (1983)

Curtains has been on many many wish lists over the last 15 years, since DVDs became widely available. Every year one horror magazine or another puts out a top 10 list of forgotten or lost films that have yet to make the jump to dvd. Curtains is almost always on those lists. Many people grew […]

World Gone Wild (2014)

My earliest action movie memory is of The Road Warrior. Every time the film played on T.V., I would watch it. Max was just such a cool character. He drove what is arguably the coolest vehicle in all of film history, sported a sweet sawed off shotgun that has the same amount of stopping power […]

Toxic Graveyard Podcast #0

Hello dear readers I have decided to pull the Toxic Graveyard podcast out of retirement and start fresh with episode #0 with my co-host Jose. It’s been 3 years almost exactly since I did one last so I figured it was time. We review Riddick (2013) and Elysium (2013) sitting outside at our local Drive-In […]

Elevator (2011)

I have a soft spot for indie flicks that take place in a single room/house/location. From a writing standpoint, it’s really hard to pull off an engaging, entertaining, film with limited characters and locations, hence why you’ll never see Transformers: The Cabin in the Woods. Films of this nature hinge on a believeable script and […]
