When medical student Dean Cain advertises for a roommate, he soon finds one in the form of Dr. Herbert West. Initially a little eccentric, it some becomes clear that West entertains some seriously outlandish theories specifically, the possibility of re-animating the dead. It s not long before Dean finds himself under West s influence, and embroiled in a serious of ghoulish experiments Based on H.P. Lovecraft’s classic terror tale ‘Herbert West Reanimator’ and featuring a standout performance from Jeffrey Combs as the deranged West, Re-Animator remains the greatest of 80s splatter mayhem.

Shout Factory is creating the collectors “Blu-ray” edition of George Romero’s Land of the Dead. The fourth of Romero’s zombie movies finds survivors living in a walled off section of a city, safe from the dead but not safe from the corrupt men running the place. While there is little known about what the collectors edition will include I would venture to say it will sport a 2k re-mastering and have a lot of extras and audio commentaries. If your new to Shout Factory you’ll be excited to know that they released a fantastic collectors edition of Day of the Dead. Those of you that listen to the Reel 9 podcast have heard us mention Shout Factory often. Land of the Dead is scheduled to be released on October 24 2017.

I Am Not A Serial Killer (2016)   4 out of 5 stars. Collection worthy.

Reviewed by Creepy Uncle Kevin

Yay! I really enjoyed this movie. Based on the first novel of the ‘John Wayne Cleaver Trilogy” by John Wells. Directed by Bill O’Brian, and if you can’t tell by his last name, this is an Irish production shot in Virginia. Starring Max Records (the little boy from ‘Where The Wild Things Are’!) and Christopher Loyd, who does a great job and is in the movie a lot more then I expected. Speaking of expected…boy was I wrong. I thought I was in for ‘Henry: Portrait Of A Serial Killer – The Younger Years’, and fortunately I was wrong. The story centers around a troubled teen growing up in a Midwest town who is a diagnosed sociopath, and proud of it. He is obsessed with Serial Killers and is doing his best to avoid becoming one. People start getting murdered and this starts his hunt to find the murderer, to see the murdering, take part in the murder, and to fuck with the murders head. Okay. To my surprise this movie is artistic, funny, mysterious, gross and intriguing. Plus there are some great twist that I can’t talk about to anybody because I’m the only one who’s seen the damn thing. One of the better pictures this year.

The Autopsy Of Jane Doe (2016)   3.5 out of 5

Reviewed by Creepy Uncle Kevin.

The second film from Norwegian film maker Andre Overdal who previously brought us a personal favorite under the name of ‘Troll Hunter’ (2010 – in Norwegian). This marks his first American film, and while the cover and title give off a ‘direct to streaming’ vibe, this film has received positive criticism. It is very different from his first project (I imagine any thing he does would be different from ‘Troll Hunter’) and I noticed he did not write the script this time. As for the script, the film is about two coroners, a Father and Son team played by Emile Hirsch (‘Into The Wild’, ‘Speed Racer’), and Brian Cox (‘25th Hour’, ‘Red’) who are conducting an autopsy on an unidentified corpse dropped off by the police. The corpse, or ‘Jane Doe’, is played by Olwen Catherine Kelly who does nothing but lay there completely naked the whole time making you feel uncomfortable. As the autopsy begins so does the mystery. I called the ending and that’s why the film didn’t get 4 stars, but I really enjoyed this movie. It kept me engaged. I wasn’t in the mood to actually watch a movie. I just turned on my copy to check the quality and see what the film looked like, and found myself watching for the whole show instead of the 5 minutes I expected. That’s a good review. Plus I didn’t even know it was from the director of ‘Troll Hunter’, a movie I enjoyed so much it’s trying not to turn this review into a puff piece for that movie! This film has got some great suspence, originality, and gross stuff going on. A very limited cast and again, a one location horror piece, but it moves a long well and doesn’t fall into any of the cliches. So, who is the girl? How did she die? What’s this cloth in her guts for? Whats up with her skin? Horror fans will get a kick out of this. However, I think it’s more like a very good episode of ‘Masters Of Horror’ then a film. It kind of has a ‘Tales From The Crypt’ sort of ending. Enough said. Thumbs up. Check it out.

In this podcast we continue on with more Home Invasion torment. The second feature film from writer- director Miguel Angel Vivas, who went on to make Extinction (2015) and most recently remade the subject of our previous podcast Inside. An upper class family of three moves into their new home in the woods of Madrid only to have three hooded baddies bust in to take everything from these unfortunates. High tension that will send one pacing about. Weaponizing your home. Hiding things. This is high grade horror. Known as ‘the film with only 12 shots”. In the portion of the podcast we give a quick Non-spoiler section. You will hear the ‘spoiler alarm’ before we basically go over the entire movie on a good rant. A fun listen after viewing. Check it out. Both the movie and the debate! And next time, let your daughter go to the party! Might save her fucking life! Enjoy the podcast.

In this podcast we discuss perhaps the bloodiest and defiantly craziest home invasion movie either of us has seen. Inside is a 2007 French home invasion movie directed by Julien Maury and Alexandre Bustillo. The story is about the attack and home invasion of a young pregnant women (Alysson Paradis) by a mysterious stranger (Beatrice Dalle) who wants to take her unborn baby. The film starts with a slow burn and then heats up the creep factor before erupting into high gear and going full on bloody insanity mode. Its a simple rather ridiculous premise and yet an unforgettable horrific ride. We both agree that every aspect of this production was done extremely well, the actors did a superb job on their characters, the make up effects were very realistic, and the cinematography and lighting were fabulous. We both recommend this movie. Enjoy the podcast. In our following podcast we will be covering the film Kidnapped (home invasion again) by director Miguel Angel Vivas whom has recently completed the remake of Inside. Check it out! And lock your fucking doors!
