“MartialHorror” is a website dedicated to my two favorite film genre’s: Martial arts and horror. While I do make special exceptions as to what I review, the website mainly focuses on these two genres. However, I also use the focus somewhat liberally. If a movie simply has martial arts, or has it’s scary moments, I may also review them.


  1. “Puppet Master 4 (1993)” movie review.

    "Puppet Master 4" seems cheaper than previous entries of the franchise, which is strange because it boasts such a high profile concept (killer puppets vs demons). But it's also just a bad movie that finds any semblance of redemption by providing lots of unintentional hilarity. Plus, at least it's very short.
  2. “Puppet Master III: Toulon’s Revenge (1991)” movie review.

    "Puppet Master 3: Toulon's Revenge" showcases Blade, Leech Woman, Jester and the other demonic puppets inflicting brutal punishment on deplorable Nazi's and the filmmakers are clearly having a blast with the concept. Demonic Puppets Vs Nazi's!!! Puppets terrorizing Nazi's!!! All I have to do is repeat the same thing over and over again, which is enough to sum up my feelings towards this film.
  3. “Puppet Master (1989)” movie review.

    The "Puppet Master" films were selected for my March Franchise Marathon, which is nice because I was never able to complete these movies...Yet after watching the original, I find myself afraid...and not for the right reasons. The first is supposed to be the best, right?
  4. “Three Outlaw Samurai (1964)” movie review.

    "Three Outlaw Samurai", which probably should be called "Three Outlaw Ronin", is an entertaining Chambara opus thanks to an abundance of style and swordplay. But it's not likely to last very long within your memory because it borrows from every trendy samurai flick of its time...
  5. “Maniac (1980)” movie review.

    I can see many viewers calling "Maniac" boring and I wouldn't blame them. But I thought the filmmakers did a masterful job at creating a never-ending feeling of unease thanks to the atmosphere and amazing performance by Joe Spinell- who is adorable and terrifying at once.
  6. “House (1977)” movie review.

    "Hausu" is a fascinating experience because it's one psychedelic visual following another, some shots being alluring while others are haunting. It's corny, campy and kind of creepy, but you have to accept its avant-garde approach in order to appreciate it.
