    “31 Nights of Terror” A Plague So Pleasant

    Posted in Disc Reviews by John Ceballos on October 5th, 2015

    My name is Clay Marshall, and I am one of the many survivors of the zombie apocalypse.”

    Yes, you read that right. The word “many” in the above quote is not a misprint. A Plague So Pleasant seeks to explore the crushingly mundane aftermath of a worldwide plague.

    The Bloody Ape

    Posted in Disc Reviews by David Annandale on April 13th, 2009

    Try this plot on for size: Gordo, an ape owned by carnival sideshow barker the Great Lampini (Paul Richichi), gets loose and rampages about Long Island, raping and killing and stealing cars (!).

    The Devil’s Daughter

    Posted in Disc Reviews by David Annandale on December 6th, 2007

    Come with me, gentle viewer, back to the state of horror on TV, Anno Domini 1973. After her long-absent mother dies in mysterious circumstances, Belinda Montgomery attends the funeral where she meets Shelley Winters, an old friend of the family, or so she claims. Winters takes Montgomery into her home, and there our young heroine meets all sorts of strange people, and gradually realizes she is in the clutches of a Satanic cult who believe she is Satan’s daughter.
