Zombie 4: After Death or How I Learned to Start Loving Trash and Stop Being a Snob

There’s a moment about halfway through After Death (although time becomes indecipherable while watching, so for all I know it could be ten minutes into the film or six seconds prior to the conclusion) where you’ll have to make a decision. You’re in or you’re out. There’s no middle ground, no neutrality. A coin and … More Zombie 4: After Death or How I Learned to Start Loving Trash and Stop Being a Snob

The Merits of Sin: The Backlot Murders (2002) (USA)

We’ve all spent time with dumb movies. As horror fans we are some of the more adventurous moviegoers out there and hunting down that hidden gem usually comes with our fair share of sitting through idiocy.

The Merits of Sin: The Rider of the Skulls (1965) (Mexico)

Wonderful hodgepodge of insanity from south of the border seems like it may have been the first three episodes of a failed television series edited together for feature length. I don’t really give a good gawd damn how it came into existence, I’m just happy it’s here. Every great hero has a great origin story. … More The Merits of Sin: The Rider of the Skulls (1965) (Mexico)

The Merits of Sin: Snake Sisters (1984) (Philippines)

What in the seven fucks just happened?! Incredibly weird fantasy flick feels like a really bad fever dream, constantly shifting between irritation and insanity.
