IN THEATERS! The famous story of the Lutz family, and how they unwarily entered a hotbed of supernatural (and evil) powers when they purchased their old Dutch Colonial home in the quiet suburb of Amityville, has been told over 9 times now, if you count the 7 “Amityville” sequels, prequels, and just plain retardquels…

The stories that are told in “The Lunar Pack” are really fun and thankfully employ an under utilized horror; that of lycanthropes…

KOMA: THE JEALOUSY OF HUMANS

Karena Lam, Hong Kong actress, and Angelica Lee, stars of the new thriler “Koma”, open up about their characters Suen Ling, a seemingly wicked and devious femme fatale who will stop at nothing to get what she wants, and Chi Ching, a forgiving and terribly pitiable woman… or is that REALLY the way their characters are? Director Chi Leung Law also participates in this intriguing look into the basis for Hong Kong female-driven thrills and chills…

THE JACKET

2.5 Stars
Year Released: 2005
MPAA Rating: R
Running Time: 102 minutes

IN THEATERS! The filmmakers make a point of calling this a “genre-less” project, and indeed it is, but for most viewers I think you can throw this in the same bag with “The Sixth Sense”, “The Village”, and “Boogeyman”…

Year Released: 2004
MPAA Rating: Unrated
Running Time: 88 minutes

Think “Romy and Michelle” meets “The Rocky Horror Picture Show”, and you’ll have an accurate idea of what the filmmakers were shooting for. “Screech of the Decapitated” treats b-movies with a refreshingly feminine take on beauty, comedy, and horror…

CHRIS SEAVER’S TRASH IS BETTER THAN YOURS

Chris Seaver, the founder of Low Budget Pictures, has a strange and sick sense of humor. With the advent of DV, computer editing programs, and websites designed as support systems for independent filmmakers, there are literally hundreds of makeshift companies out there producing gore, filth, trash, sludge, slime, dirt, and disgusting garbage…Chris Seaver is just better at it…

MURDER-SET-PIECES

4 Stars
Year Released: 2004
MPAA Rating: Unrated
Running Time: 100 minutes

Usually films of this caliber violence are hack jobs or wannabe snuff films with no real message, characters, or goals other than to kill naked whores in front of a camera. “Murder-Set-Pieces” is so much more violent and so much better than anything I’ve seen before in the genre…
