“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. “The Howling: Reborn (2011)” movie review.

    "The Howling Reborn"- which attempted to cash-in on the "Twilight" craze- tries to be for everyone and yet it ultimately ends up being for no one, except maybe those cinematic masochists who wish to endure the entirety of the Howling franchise...like me...and you know what? I'm not even sure if this is for us because "The Howling Reborn" isn't even bad enough to satisfy my self destructive cravings.
  2. “Howling VII: New Moon Rising (1995)” movie review.

    Bad will always be bad, but "Howling: New Moon Rising" is a special kind of evil- one that represents everything I deplore about cheap sequels, from stock footage abuse to padding to terrible everything, causing the traumatic experiences of the Puppet Master franchise to resurface.
  3. “Howling VI: The Freaks (1991)” movie review.

    "Howling VI: The Freaks" is technically the best of the Howling sequels, but it achieves this by being OK in every way, making the movie a little too average for my tastes. Considering it's about a werewolf and vampire dueling wits in a circus troupe, I should be squealing in joy instead of shrugging indifferently!
  4. “Howling V: The Rebirth (1989)” movie review.

    "Howling V: The Rebirth" writes checks it cannot cash, but was still an easy watch and in some ways, is my favorite of the Howling sequels. After all, it's a werewolf-themed murder mystery which place in a dilapidated castle and that concept is just amazing.
  5. “Howling III: The Marsupials (1987)” movie review.

    On a technical level, "Howling 3" is a noticeable step up from its predecessor, even containing some legitimate good stuff. My problem is that even the filmmakers don't seem to know what kind of movie they wanted to make. A comedy? Horror? Arthouse? Romance? Environmentalist propaganda? Exploitation? It's too much of all of these genres to satisfy as any one of them!

    "The Howling" is a good movie, one of the few examples of horror that I would recommend to even those who don't lurk within the fandom of the genre. Yet I have always felt that it is a bit overrated, believing that its more passionate followers have convinced themselves that the handful of exceptional moments embody the entire film.
