    33 % old school, Dead Silence-era James Wan, dripping in his patented atmospherics that I love so much: fog, neon, overhead shots, and the only director working today that can efficiently and effectively pull off jump scares.

    33 % 90s Darkman / Army of Darkness-era Sam Raimi splat-stick pyrotechnic stunt show silliness, Dutch angles and zooms and dreary, noir-y set pieces that I had forgotten how much I loved and realized has been missing in my life for far too…

    Taste the Blood of Dracula


    (I Never Had) The Bloody Hammer #16:

    Lee returns after being summoned via black magick rituals (and some neat re-hydrated Alka Seltzer-looking blood effects) by a quartet of hedonistic assholey aristocrats. When the blood drinking ceremony goes wrong (as it usually does), the resurrected Count goes on a vengeance tear hunting down the three remaining elder jerkwads by turning their daughters into gleefully evil be-fanged acolytes.

    While upping the quotient on blood, nudity, sex and violence from the previous installments,…
