After an all-too-serious story combined with awkwardly placed sexploitation in SLINK, Masters found the balance between horror and goofy humor in TEACHERS DAY, and that's what makes it such an entertaining watch.
Could it get worse for a guy who bears a grudge against everyone, who codendently shoves away those who care for him like they were leperous bungee jumpers- screw off, come back, screw off, come back? Ask the guy that just took a bite out of his neck.
Up until SLINK, Jared Masters had been focusing on retro sex comedies reminiscent of sexploitation out of the 60's and 70's. With his first horror film, he went a much darker direction, while still maintaining a core of exploitation. In other words, SLINK uses every opportunity for nudity, and often sacrifices the violence that the story really calls for.

Well, it’s Valentine’s Day again.

There’s just something about a movie with weird monster puppets and buckets of gore, isn’t there? From Infested Films and Brain Damage Films comes an anthology apparently packed with both. The DEAD ON APPRAISAL release has been set for March 1st on VOD and April 8th on DVD, packed with special features. It looks to be […]
After watching the new FOUNDERS DAY concept trailer, you would assume it’s much more than just a concept. There’s a lot of substance here for just an introduction, and frankly, I’m already intrigued and shooting hasn’t even begun. This new trailer was filmed August of 2013 in Connecticut with near 40 cast and crew members, […]
Zombie Ass: Toilet of the Dead There’s an easy way to begin this review: all Noboru Iguchi films are an acquired taste, but chances are if you know the director, you know what you’re getting into. That said, ZOMBIE ASS: TOILET OF THE DEAD is even more gross than the rest. Tokyo Shock gives fair […]
For anyone who missed the original trailer announcement (find it here), MUCK is an upcoming horror film with an obvious focus on thorough plot development, deeply emotional character creation, unforeseen plot twists, psychological mind games, and thought-provoking socioeconomic analysis. Yes, I’m full of shit. If you actually watched the trailer, you know I’m lying through […]
For those of you who have missed us, we’re back! Alright, so we’ve had a bit of an unannounced hiatus here at the Blood Sucking Geek, mainly for a few personal reasons, but it’s about time we get back up and running. So before just jumping right back into things like normal, I wanted to […]
The Blood Sucking Geek was developed as a single-author horror movie review blog by Jonny Dead. After an overhaul, the site now has multiple authors, and provides reviews, lists, discussions, and news of horror films, games, and music. We are all fans of obscure, classic, cult, unknown and under-appreciated horror. For this reason, we all strive to create a renewed interest in the lesser known parts of the genre, and to inform readers of films/games/music that they may not already be aware of.
