Pie Porn

Pie Porn

The Kate Winslet buoyed HBO miniseries “Mildred Pierce” just wrapped up it’s laborious five hours. She did her best, it had great production values (production designers! Is there any Hollywood workhorse that’s had more consistent results?), but in the end, the story did not justify it’s runtime. So, sadly, I don’t think I got much...

HORROR-A-DAY: Nightmare City

Nightmare City “Nightmare City”(1980), Directed by Umberto Lenzi, Not Rated (equivalent of an R) Quite frankly, this will probably be the least scary film I’ll put on this list. And this isn’t one of those films that tries to be scary and fails — no, this is a film that is more or less an...

Zombie “Zombie“(1979), Directed by Lucio Fulci, Not Rated (equivalent of an X at the time it was released) “We Are Going viagra 100mg To Eat You!” Okay, now we’re getting into the meaty (pun intended) stuff.

HORROR-A-DAY: Wolfen

HORROR-A-DAY: Wolfen

Wolfen It seems that 1981 was a big year for werewolves on cinema screens. There were three high-profile releases that year: the previously mentioned “An American Werewolf in London,” Joe Dante’s “The Howling,” and this particular film, which was a high-profile studio release but did lukewarm business and pretty much vanished from the public’s consciousness....
