MONSTROUS MOVIE REVIEWS: The Wolf of Snow Hollow (2020)

The year of 2020 has been horrible for everybody. Many people are living day-to-day and so many locally owned businesses are no longer with us. The pandemic has also affected larger chains as well, especially when it comes to entertainment. Movies stopped filming, theatres shut down and entertainment that we really needed to keep our mind off of things were non-existent.

MONSTROUS MASK REVIEWS: The Monitor by Trick or Treat Studios

One thing I have always been a fan of is the big-brained alien creatures from the movies, such as INVASION OF THE SAUCER-MEN from 1957. In fact I like them so much, I wrote a whole blog on them (seen HERE). The subject of this blog, The Monitor from Trick or Treat Studios, falls in this category.

You do not have to be a flying saucer fanatic to know the word Roswell and what happened there in 1947. If you have been under a rock and unaware of the story, to put it simply, there is overwhelming proof that an alien space craft crashed in Roswell, New Mexico in July of 1947. Left behind was a gigantic debris field and three alien bodies, all about three to four feet tall, and one was still alive. As soon as it was announced that we had captured a disc, the story was changed saying that it was actually a weather balloon, despite the fact that the military that went to the crash had years of experience with weather balloons and still said it was an alien craft. This has been one of the longest covered-up secrets in United States history and considering that all files of the case were “accidentally” incinerated, it is doubtful that we will ever know the truth; until now.

For the Halloween season of 2020 I became aware of a company that showed up on my Facebook feed called Terror Threads. They were advertising a House Of Terror USB cassette and the whole concept intrigued me. I grew up with albums such as Sounds To Make You Shiver and Disney’s Chilling, Thrilling Sounds Of The Haunted House and this looked like something very similar. Since I had never heard of this company, and since I had been getting inundated with scam ads on Facebook, I went to the website to see if this was a similar situation. Thankfully, it was not.

THE BASEMENT BLU-RAY REVIEW: Extraterrestrial (2014)

It’s not often that a movie like EXTRATERRESTRIAL comes around where they do pretty much everything right, especially a horror movie. If more film makers believed in doing something original like this, as opposed to sequel or remake after sequel or remake, then the movie industry would probably be in much better shape (and yet this film only received a limited release in the United States).

THE BASEMENT BLU-RAY REVIEW: Howard the Duck (1986)

In the summer of 1986 Universal Studios and Lucas Productions (yes, THAT Lucas Productions) released a film that may go down in history as one of the worst movies of all time. It featured an all-star cast, featuring Lea Thompson, Jeffrey Jones and Tim Robbins and had a budget of $35,000,000 (it reportedly grossed $16,295,774 in the United States according to the IMDB website). The story features Howard, a humanoid duck character from a planet much like earth whose predominant species were ducks instead of hairless apes.
