Hello once again. After a brief involuntary hiatus from reviewing, I’m finally back to try to pick up the slack. I’ve been wanting to  watch and talk about another movie directed by Richard Griffin. And so I decided to go with today’s choice, Murder University.  Let’s get to it. Continue reading

Macabre Review: Formula For A Murder (1985)

Formula For A MurderStarring Christina Nagy, David Warbeck, Carroll Blumenberg

Directed by Alberto De Martino

It’s been a while since I reviewed something a little older, and thanks to the nice people at Shameless Films, I’ll be doing just that today.  It’s a return to Italy for a review of Formula For a Murder (aka 7, Hyden Park: La Casa Maledetta).  Although,  it’s not exactly a return to Italy per se, as the movie itself takes place in New York City.  Well, you get what I’m saying.  Let’s begin.

Macabre Review: Rabid Love (2013)

Rabid LoveStarring Hayley Derryberry, Jessica Sonneborn, Brandon Stacy

Directed by Paul J. Porter

If I had to pick my favorite decade for horror, it would have to be the 80s.  Sure, the 80s had some horrible movies like any other decade, but it also had some of horror’s most memorable characters, one-liners, and practical effects.  And when someone tries to capture the 80s feel for their movie it definitely piques my interest.  It also worries me a little, for fear that the movie will fail utterly in that regard.

Macabre Review: Exhumed (2011)

exhumedposterStarring Debbie Rochon, Sarah Nicklin, Michael Thurber

Directed by Richard Griffin

For today’s review I’m traveling back to the magical year of 2011.  At least I think it was magical, I don’t really remember a whole lot about that year.  And no, alcohol wasn’t a factor.  Ok, it wasn’t a HUGE factor.  Anyway,  I’ve watched a LOT of horror in my time, but there is an equal (or maybe even greater) amount that I still have yet to see.  Enter Exhumed, a movie that I’m embarrassed to say escaped my radar until recently.  This is thanks to Rob at the wonderful Wild Eye Releasing, who was nice enough to send me a goodie-bag (or box in this case) of horror flicks to watch and review.

It’s serial killer time here at the Necropolis Macabre, and today I’m talking about Head Cases: Serial Killers In The Delaware Valley.  My thanks go to director Anthony Spadaccini, who was nice enough to hook me up with a screener earlier in the week.  It’s been a while since I watched either a serial killer movie or a mockumentary, so let’s get into it and see what I thought of this.
