It’s that time of year again! Each year at the 7 Golden Vampire Awards, we take a look at all the films we’ve reviewed this year on Channel 83 and hand out some awards for the best and worst ones in different categories. Once again we are joined by a special guest to help us put a stake in the heart of 2020! The post E128: 2ND ANNUAL 7 GOLDEN VAMPIRE AWARDS appeared first on Channel 83.
This week we’re joined yet again by George, host of The Best Little Horror House in Philly! We’re wrapping up our month of Halloween Hangover with a non-horror movie that terrified George as a child, 1968’s car-come-to-life fantasy musical Chitty Chitty Bang Bang. The post E127: CHITTY CHITTY BANG BANG – feat. George from The Best Little Horror House in Philly appeared first on Channel 83.
The Halloween season has passed and just like last year we’re switching things up a bit this week and taking a look at a movie that is decidedly non-horror to help you get over your Halloween Hangover. After 31 days straight of horror we could all do with a bit of a palate cleanser, I think. Our movie this week is Big Wave from 1984. The post E126: BIG WAVE appeared first on Channel 83.
Hello, videodrones! Thanks for sticking with us through our 31 in 31 marathon! Today we’re bringing you a quick episode wrapping up the month of October before taking a short break! The post E125: HOOPTOBER WRAP-UP appeared first on Channel 83.
We did it videodrones, 31 episodes in 31 days! There have been many ups and downs this month but we rose to the occasion and bested the Hooptober challenge. We close out the month with yet another film directed by Tobe Hooper. Much like The Mangler and Djinn, Night Terrors is yet another Hooper film with a troubled production that fails to deliver. The post E124: NIGHT TERRORS appeared first on Channel 83.
If the Pumpkinhead franchise has taught us anything, it’s that sometimes it’s better to let sleeping demons lie. I only wish that Jeff Burr and co. had heeded that advice before deciding to make Pumpkinhead II: Blood Wings. The post E123: PUMPKINHEAD II appeared first on Channel 83.
Tonight we’re reviewing The Mangler 2 from 2002. You may remember that the original Mangler was one of the films that was submitted to us for Shitty September. If there’s one thing that horror fandom has taught me over the years it’s that horror franchise sequels follow the law of diminishing returns, so when your starting point is something as shitty as the original Mangler well… let’s just say I didn’t have high hopes for this one. The post E122: THE MANGLER 2 appeared first on Channel 83.
Rather than using the Hooptober marathon’s requirement of watching one invisible man film as an opportunity to finally watch Universal’s classic 1933 film The Invisible Man, we at Channel 83 instead decided to do what we always do: go with a much more obscure film that probably no one cares about. Tonight we’re reviewing the 1954 Japanese film, Invisible Man aka The Invisible Avenger. The post E121: INVISIBLE MAN (透明人間) appeared first on Channel 83.
The original Candyman is one of only two films that I’ve reviewed on this cast that I’ve given a 5-star rating on Letterboxd. I love that movie, I believe it is one of the best, if not the best horror movie of the 1990s. I’ve always considered myself a fan of the sequel as well, although it had been quite some time since I’d seen it. Let’s see if my feelings have changed! The post E120: CANDYMAN: FAREWELL TO THE FLESH appeared first on Channel 83.
It’s day 26 of our Hooptober marathon we’re getting so damn close to finishing this and tonight’s film, 1979’s Giallo in Venice, is a corker. Released on December 31st, 1979, Giallo in Venice marks the end of the giallo’s heyday in the 1970s both literally and figuratively. By this point the artistry that had become a hallmark of the genre had given way to movies like Giallo in Venice whose main goal is to be the sleaziest, most vile and repugnantly violent film possible. The post E119: GIALLO IN VENICE appeared first on Channel 83.
Anak Ambar is an Indonesian short film directed by Melvin Giovanie and written by Fanny Gunawan. It’s a pretty straightforward film and, like The Oily Maniac, is an adaptation of traditional Malay mythology. Does this low-budget short deliver the horror goods? The post E118: ANAK AMBAR appeared first on Channel 83.
Bride of Re-Animator sees the return of Jeffrey Combs and Bruce Abbott to Miskatonic University in Brian Yuzna’s follow-up to the 1985 Lovecraftian classic. With effects from Buechler, Nicotero, and Screaming Mad George, Bride of Re-Animator is everything you want in a goofy horror gorefest. But does it live up to the legacy of the original? The post E117: BRIDE OF RE-ANIMATOR appeared first on Channel 83.
Tonight we’re reviewing our 3rd and final disease-based film for the Hooptober marathon. This one, 1993’s Dark Universe, is brought to us by the same dynamic writer/director duo that gave us 1995’s Jack-O. Throw Joe Estevez and Steve Barkett into the mix and we’ve got ourselves a stew going! The post E116: DARK UNIVERSE appeared first on Channel 83.
A little over a month ago, we reviewed the first Violent Shit film for our Shitty September marathon. In fact, the first Violent Shit was so bad that it ended up being crowned the winner of Shitty September. Obviously I wasn’t too stoked to watch the sequel being that the first is one of the worst movies I’ve ever seen. Unfortunately, reviewing the first one means that reviewing the rest of the franchise is an inevitability because that’s just how we roll here at Channel 83. The post E115: VIOLENT SHIT II: MOTHER HOLD MY HAND appeared first on Channel 83.
Tales from the Crypt: Demon Knight was directed by Ernest Dickerson, the same man that graced us with Surviving the Game! Featuring appearances from William Sadler and a very young, very delicious Billy Zane, is Demon Knight the best TFTC movie? The post E114: TALES FROM THE CRYPT: DEMON KNIGHT appeared first on Channel 83.
Basket Case 2 is a follow-up to writer/director Frank Henenlotter’s 1982 debut film about the brothers Bradley. Duane and Belial are back and better than ever and although this sequel is a much more polished film than the first, there’s still plenty of gonzo, Henenlotter charm to be found in Basket Case 2. The post E113: BASKET CASE 2 appeared first on Channel 83.
Tonight we’re joined by friend of the cast Mike Ward. Mike is an all-around cool guy and former writer for Mondo Exploito, so we called upon him to help us dissect 1991’s The Guyver! Mark Hamill, Michael Berryman, David Gale, Jeffrey Combs, Jimmie “JJ” Walker, and Linnea Quigley star in this is great American tokusatsu film directed by effects legends Steve Wang and Screaming Mad George. The post E112: THE GUYVER – feat. Mike Ward appeared first on Channel 83.
It’s day 18 of our Hooptober horror marathon and I stand before you a broken man. We’re a little more than halfway through the month and for the first time so far, I feel like I’m having a rough go of it. Tonight’s film, 1988’s Rejuvenatrix, is the first movie I’ve reviewed where I’ve really had to question my decision to review a film per day. The post E111: REJUVENATRIX appeared first on Channel 83.
It creeps and leaps and glides and slides across the floor! It’s the friggin’ Blob! Today we take a quick look at Irvin S. Yeaworth Jr.’s 1958 classic. Steve McQueen stars opposite a squishy mass of silicone in this landmark of B-cinema. The post E110: THE BLOB appeared first on Channel 83.
Now, if you’re like me, you hear the name Primal Rage and your mind immediately thinks of the 1994 video game about dinosaurs fighting each other but tonight’s film isn’t anything like that. Again, this one goes towards fulfilling the Hooptober requirement of watching 3 disease-based films and this one was a doozy. The post E109: PRIMAL RAGE appeared first on Channel 83.
Mati Diop’s Atlantics is a beautifully-shot, languid mystery/romance set in Dakar, Senegal. The film received high praise upon its release in 2019, even making then-U.S. President Barack Obama’s list of his favorite movies of 2019. But is it a horror movie? The post E108: ATLANTICS appeared first on Channel 83.
I had really considered going rogue and skipping the Hooptober “disease-based films” category. I mean, do we really need another reminder of how shitty things are in the world today? But ultimately, I decided that I may as well just play along with the rules and The Carrier made me glad that I did. This one has to be seen to be believed. The post E107: THE CARRIER appeared first on Channel 83.
Continuing on with our Hooptober marathon, today we take a quick look at the Austrian home invasion film, Funny Games from 1997. Michael Haneke’s polarizing film was famously called “a complete piece of shit” by French filmmaker, Jacques Rivette. Let’s see if he was right. The post E106: FUNNY GAMES appeared first on Channel 83.
We’re forging ahead in our 31 in 31 Hooptober challenge with 2015’s Unnatural. James Remar and Sherilyn Fenn battle a genetically enhanced polar bear in this low budget natural horror film directed by Hank Braxtan. The post E105: UNNATURAL appeared first on Channel 83.
Tonight we continue on with day 11 of our Hooptober marathon with 2018’s animated body-horror film, Violence Voyager. Written and directed by mysterious Japanese artist, Ujicha, Violence Voyager feels like a Golden Books videotape from hell, complete with child murder, cybernetic enhancements, and plenty of bodily fluids. The post E104: VIOLENCE VOYAGER (バイオレンス・ボイジャー) appeared first on Channel 83.
