DVD: Mother

For anyone interested, here’s how my process of choosing what to post here on elroyonline works: I watch stuff, lots of stuff, lots of really random stuff. Some of it isn’t great, some of it is ok, some of it entertains me enough to want to share it with some folks. Those folks is you. […]

Series: Kolchak: The Night Stalker

Long before Peter and Walter Bishop started exploring the fringe with that chick who isn’t Clare Danes. Before Sam and Dean put on their best denim and started poking around in the supernatural.

Horror: Acolytes

ACOLYTES is the work of Jon Hewitt, a man whose short resume of movies (both as writer and director) doesn’t stray too far from the thriller genre.

Horror: Donkey Punch

At every step of the way, while watching DONKEY PUNCH, i was that idiot who screams at the screen for the characters not to do the thing that they are clearly about to do. And a few minutes after ‘every step of the way’ I was the know-it-all asshole muttering “Told you not to!” under […]

Horror: 13 Game of Death

This intense horror / thriller from Thailand really surprised me. Despite the absurdity of the plot, which revolves around an online ‘reality’ game which must be something of a logistical nightmare to pull off, 13 GAME OF DEATH is actually a very entertaining, albeit stomach churning, movie. Pusit finds himself at the end of his […]
