A favorite subgenre of mine has always been the Christmas slasher flick. I’ve reveiwed a handful here at MCFTR over the years, starting with the cult classic Silent Night, Deadly Night several years ago and devoting practically the entire holiday season to the genre last year…

It’s been a while since we dropped in on our old pal, Jack Frost. Last year, in fact, when we reviewed the greatest Mutant Killer Snowman movie that shares its name with a Michael Keaton family film ever to be caught on film…

Doom (2005)

Movies based on video games are notorious for being awful. I believe Noel even wrote an article detailing the badness, but like a fool I gave Doom a chance anyway. I knew I wasn’t about to see a good movie by any means, but I at least expected it to be entertaining…

I didn’t know what to expect when I loaded up on Zombie movies for this month’s tribute to the walking dead. I knew I’d probably have to wade through a bunch of the crappiest films ever made in order to really satisfy my zombie cravings, but I’m used to bad movies…

I am probably one of the only people in this dimension that was really
