Macabre Review: Happy Birthday To Me (1981)

Happy Birthday To MeStarring: Melissa Sue Anderson, Glenn Ford, Lawrence Dane

Directed by J. Lee Thompson

Seeing as how my birthday is here, I decided to take it upon myself to review something with a birthday theme.  And today I’m talking about a movie that can’t be more aptly named, Happy Birthday To Me.  I’ve had originally intended to do a review for this last year, but it just wasn’t in the cards.  This year, however, is a different matter.  Director J. Lee Thompson doesn’t have a whole lot of horror-related directing under his belt, but he did direct two Planet of the Apes sequels, so I took that as a good sign that things will go well here.  Was I correct in that thinking?  Well, let’s find out.

Macabre Review: Dead On Appraisal (2014)

Dead On AppraisalStarring Zack Fahey, Mike Pfaff, Marguerite Insolia

Directed By Sean Canfield, Scott Dawson, and David Sherbrook

Hello again my freakish followers.  Today I’m returning to the world of Brain Damage Films with another anthology entry.  Dead On Appraisal shares a similarity with Horror House, another anthology movie I previously reviewed, in that it revolves around a real estate agent trying to sell a house with a rather dark history .  But that’s pretty much where the similarities end.

Macabre Review: Under The Bed (2012)

Under The BedStarring Jonny Weston, Gattlin Griffith, Peter Holden

Directed by Steven C. Miller

I don’t believe there are too many people out there who, as little kids, had some level of fear about some creature that might be hiding under the bed, in the closet, or anywhere where shadows can hide it from the light.  I personally never had a fear of anything in my closet or under my bed, but the basement in the house I grew up in was a different story, which is odd since I spent a fair mount of time there during daylight hours.  But I digress.

Macabre Review: Absentia (2011)

AbsentiaStarring Katie Parker, Courtney Bell, Dave Levine

Directed  by Mike Flanagan

Indie horror has been pretty hit and miss for me over the years, and it’s because of this that I rarely get high hopes when I dive into the next one.  And as I’ve mentioned in the past, I can no longer trust trailers thanks to movies like The Apparition and Chernobyl Diaries, which promised good things but failed to deliver.
