“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.

    "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.
  2. “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.

    I still think "The Witch" is a good movie though, with nuanced characters and creepy atmosphere. At the absolute least, it's a bold experiment that stands out for trying something completely different. But it was upstaged by its own hype and didn't quite meet my expectations.
  5. “Warriors Two (1978)” movie review.

    "Warriors Two" (directed and co-starring Sammo Hung) is a great- if flawed- kung fu flick, but it's only great as a kung fu flick. If you're aren't into the genre, you probably will spend more time hating on the script.
