Frightmare One of the most popular of Pete Walker’s films, and one of his strongest, tells the story of a family broken apart by the mother’s insanity. FRIGHTMARE opens on a court hearing for Edmund and Dorothy Yates, with vague detail, but the couple is sentenced to an extended stay at the asylum. Fifteen years […]
Killing Spree Tim Ritter’s low-budget exercise in absurdity and gore is packed to the gills with bad acting, cheesy lines, ridiculous effects, and exagerrated characters. And still, it’s damn near a low-budget horror comedy masterpiece. KILLING SPREE tells the story of Tom Russo, a newly married man with a jealous streak a mile wide. When […]

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.
Just the other day we showed you the new FOUNDERS DAY concept trailer, and since then we’ve had the chance to chat with writer/director Erik C Bloomquist about his upcoming horror film. Interview with Erik C Bloomquist Jonny Dead: What is your ultimate vision for FOUNDERS DAY? Erik C Bloomquist: We want to create an experience […]
Frolic Pictures recently released several films on VHS, one of which is their new horror thriller SLINK. Writer/director Jared Masters, and also the owner of Frolic Pictures, has been producing films specifically for the exploitation fans, and as would be appropriate to the genre, has decided to release many of them on VHS. The SLINK […]
Well, it’s Valentine’s Day again. Whether you’re single, shaking your fist at couples walking by and listing off the reasons that it’s better to be single, or if you’ve got a significant other and you’re looking for that last minute gift that won’t get you kicked out of the house or at least down to […]

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 […]
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.
