"He who has wisdom wonders not of the beast"An antediluvian tome of philosophical verses describing the nature of evil and the beast form it can take, The Curses of the Ancient Dead acts as a magical doorway through which a half-vampire, half-werewolf, full-demon can be conjured in Empire Picture's quirky 1988 horror flick, Cellar Dweller. Littered … Continue reading Tome of the Week: The Curses of the Ancient Dead (Cellar Dweller) – 1988 | New 5th Edition Wondrous Item

Monster of the Week: Nightbeast (Nightbeast) – 1982 | New 5th Edition Monster

"Why don't you just blow the thing's head off, dad?"Nightbeast (1982) is not a good movie.Any horror fan who has heard of Don Dohler (R.I.P. 2006), knows the cult status of the b-movie director and his low-budget science-fiction/horror films.

"She takes what belongs to her, the animals, the peopleand she drinks the life from their bones"Despite being a straight to DVD release, Director John Wulfson's debut and apparently only film, the 2003 horror flick The Bone Snatcher has an interesting premise and is surprisingly watchable.
