Jack’s Freaky Flick Pick | ABCs of Horror: Part I

Since it’s Spooktober, I figured I’d do something special and offer up a horror movie recommendation for every letter of the alphabet. Some of them may be obvious, but some—I hope—are not. This isn’t a list of my all-time favorites (though some are on here); it’s simply a variety of films, all of which I …

Jack’s Freaky Flick Pick | Movie Review: Pumpkinhead (1988)

I was into punk music before I was into horror movies, so when I realized that the Misfits song “Pumpkin Head” was inspired by a film, I had to see it. Stan Winston’s Pumpkinhead was itself inspired by a poem by Ed Justin, whom the main character, Ed Harley, is likely named after. The movie …

Jack’s Freaky Flick Pick | Ninja III: The Domination (1984)

I love a schlocky exploitation film, and though the intrepid standalone Ninja III: The Domination is only just fine, it certainly delivers on the schlock and the exploitation of then-current trends in film: dance, horror, and… ninjas? Yep, the same decade that gave us Dirty Dancing, A Nightmare on Elm Street, Flashdance, and Friday the …

Jack’s Freaky Flick Pick | Movie Review: Phantasm (1979)

Don Coscarelli’s Phantasm is the classic story of a diabolical 7-foot tall mortician who morphs into the body of a blonde temptress and lures unsuspecting barflies to their deaths so he can harvest their bodies and shrink them into dwarves that look like Jawas from Star Wars and launch them into another dimension in a …

Jack’s Freaky Flick Pick | Movie Review: Tetsuo the Iron Man (1989)

After waking up in the hospital with cotton balls stuffed into my ears and nose, groggy and wickedly sore on the left side of my head, the attending nurse relayed the story that I had apparently told her in my induced sedation after bursting through the emergency room doors at four in the morning with …
