Way back in a mystical time known as “The 80s”, Charles Band’s Empire Pictures launched a series of instacult-classic flicks such as Ghoulies, Re-Animator, From Beyond, Troll, and TerrorVision.  It would still be a few years before Empire Pictures sadly went out of business and morphed into Full Moon Pictures, at which point Charles Band’s obsession with diminutive killers fully consumed him.

**********SPOILERS**********

We Are the Flesh is the story of two homeless teens who take shelter with a madman in a derelict building. He is a Coffin Joe type person spouting out pretentious nonsense the whole film and trying to corrupt the two into doing very lewd things. And he succeeds. I have been debating for the past week on whether or not to write about We Are The Flesh. I hesitated for fear of drawing attention towards it. However, some of the larger horror websites have wrote glowing or semi-positive reviews of the film. The damage is done, all I can do is give another opinion. Continue reading

Not to be confused with Catfish, the documentary about the perils of online dating released in the same year, Coldfish is the story of a mild-mannered husband who unwittingly becomes the pawn of a manipulative serial killer.  Nobuyuki Syamoto runs a small fish store with his young wife Taeko and daughter Mitsuko.  After Mitsuko is caught shop-lifting, the family is “saved” from the shop-owner pressing charges by the intervention of a man named Yuko Murata.  Murata instantly befriends the family and offers to have Mitsuko stay with him and his wife Aiko and work in his much larger fish emporium.  Mitsuko readily agrees, and Murata is thus able to bend Nobuyuki to his will.  Continue reading
