Scream-A-Day No.26 – THE DEVIL’S BACKBONE (2001)

I avoided this film for a minute. Who wants to see a film about the backbone of the devil?  That’s got to be creepy.   But  “El Espinazo del Diablo” (original title)  is anything but a story about the devil’s anatomy. This story was about a boy,  An orphan to be exact, who was brought to …

Scream-A-Day No.22 – DEEP STAR SIX (1989)

      In 1979 and 1982 we were introduced to two pivotal monsters in horror – ALIEN and THE THING.  One was a creature that would hide in the dark and the other would mutate to whatever monster it needed to be. In 1989, we had two monsters that were pretty much rip-offs of …

Scream-A-Day No.21 – SUGAR HILL (1974)

The bad guys in this film messed with the wrong sister.  Because when some local gangsters take out her boyfriend, SUGAR HILL calls up some old school kick-ass. So old school they’re dead, but still walking and ready to kill.  That’s today’s classic flashback Scream-A-Day. Marki Bey plays Diana ‘Sugar’ Hill, a woman that loved her boyfriend …

Scream-A-Day No.20 – THE FRIGHTENERS (1996)

Fox.  But his ghosts were a little bit more fun to be around.  That’s why I picked this Scream-A-Day for a Sunday Afternoon horror romp. After Frank Bannister has an accident that killed his wife, he can see ghosts. …

Scream-A-Day No.18 – CARRIE (2013)

This 18th Scream-A-Day just premiered this weekend.  I had a chance to see it today and truthfully the 2013 remake wasn’t a bad film.  For what’s essentially a teen horror, CARRIE is better than most others. Moretz  as the Telekenetic introvert, and Moore as the religious zealot of a mother, delivered very good performances.  But …
