Happy New Year, Suicidalists! This week we kick off 2014 with a review of the latest picture from Mike Mendez, a riff on the current trend of ridiculous and magnificently bad giant monster movies with funny titles: Big Ass Spider starring Greg Grunberg star of TV’s Heroes and Twitter.
Merry Christmas, Happy Hannukah and Happy Festivus! ‘Tis the season to watch horror movies where you actually see Santa Claus make good on his judgement of the naughty. Here are five movies to watch this holiday season that are suitably festive and horrific.
Watch this week’s episode of Cinema Suicide for the return of The Android’s Dungeon, the old Cinema Suicide comic book column now in glorious high definition. This week I let you in on three comics that have been working for me lately, The spy comic Velvet on Image Comics from writer Ed Brubaker and artist Steve Epting, the sci-fi book Letter 44 on Oni Press from writer Charles Soule and artist Alberto Jimenez Albuqurque and Rat Queens on Image Comics from writer Kurtis Wiebe and artist Roc Upchurch.
Watch this week’s episode for a review of Murder University by Cinema Suicide favorite, Richard Griffin. This slasher movie throwback plays for yuks and demonstrates that Griffin is just as relevant a director as other independent horror darlings like Adam Wingard, Ti West and Ben Wheatley.
Also, there’s a brief salute to Doctor Who on fifty years of great storytelling and a look at the first book in Neil Gaiman’s return to Sandman, Sandman Overture.
This week’s movie review takes a week off from the usual indie horror stuff that I usually do to take a look at the exploitation/grindhouse revival picture from director Henry Saine, Bounty Killer. How do I feel about these new school riffs on old school exploitation movies? Not very good, unfortunately. Watch the video to see why you should probably take a pass on Bounty Killer.
After many delays and serious technical difficulties, I return! Here’s a look at the weirdo horror picture, Escape From Tomorrow, shot on location at the Magic Kingdoms in Disneyland and Walt Disney World by director Randy Moore. But before we get into it, check my thoughts on the trailers for Captain America: The Winter Soldier and X-Men: Days of Future Past as well as season 3 of American Horror Story and the new NBC series, Dracula.
This week’s episode officially kicks off the Halloween season with a look at horror’s most uniquely European horror movies, the erotic vampire movie. I give you the run down on Requiem For A Vampire by France’s legend of erotic horror, Jean Rollin as well as the deeply absurd, Vampyros Lesbos from director, Jess Franco and the 1983 Tony Scott film, The Hunger starring David Bowie, Catherine Deneuve and Susan Sarandon. So get comfortable, this week’s episode is chock full of blood, fangs and lesbians.
Check out this week’s episode of Cinema Suicide for a review of the 2013 horror anthology sequel, VHS 2 with shorts from Adam Wingard, Eduardo Sanchez, Gareth Evans, Timo Tjahjanto and Jason Eisener. But before we dive into the review, the Hotness is all about the Welcome To Night Vale podcast.
This week’s episode takes a look at Attack on Titan, an anime series that has even the most casual anime viewers going bananas. Is it all that? Watch and find out. I also wax editorial on the Dexter series finale and Marvel’s Agents of SHIELD series premier.
I’m back this week after taking last week off due to being stupid busy IRL. For reparations I bring you a look at Rob Zombie’s latest picture, The Lords of Salem, a movie unlike anything he’s ever done before. It’s a decadent horror movie that tosses aside his usual splatter movie conventions and goes for something new and refreshing… but is it any good? Watch the video to find out.

Cinema Suicide began as most movie blogs do. One man, his many opinions and an ability to write that is questionable at best. Since then, movie reviews made room for the latest news in horror, exploitation and cult movies. What you can expect to find is everything you could possibly want to know from DVD releases and reviews to trivia about movies you may or may not be familiar with. At the bottom line, Cinema Suicide aims to reach beyond the shallow interactions of your typical blog and create a community that can come together around a concept that we all have in common: A love of really crappy movies.
