“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. “Unfriended (2014)” movie review.

    "Unfriended" is pretty f@cking stupid, but not as f@cking stupid as the trailers suggested it would be. The gimmick might cause eye rolling, but it is utilized reasonably well and I never grew impatient or disinterested. Yet how can anyone find this scary? The trailers spoil the majority of the kills, the characters are too unpleasant for you to fear for them and the tone rapidly alternates between disturbing and goofy.
  2. “Puppet Master: Axis of Evil (2010)” movie review.

    "Puppet Master: Axis of Evil" feels like the filmmakers (Band and DeCoteau) are giving a sincere apology to the fans in the form of a superior movie, while preparing a proper burial for the series as a whole...sort of. It's still pretty bad, but it's only bad in a typical 'direct-to-DVD' flick kind of way. The important thing is they tried.
  3. “It Follows (2015)” movie review.

    I love "It Follows" for its individuality, as it has a unique story, visual style and even the character writing and scare tactics were somewhat unconventional. But above everything, I thought it was pretty damn scary!
  4. “Demonic Toys (1992)” movie review.

    Posted by
    "Demonic Toys" turned out to be surprisingly entertaining, offering all of the over-the-top gore, cheese and weirdness that I wanted out of the more popular "Puppet Master". However, I can already feel it dissipating from my memory and I noticed that the titular demonic toys became increasingly irrelevant as the narrative progresses.
