Exorcast Presents Ten Ideal Halloween Horror Films

When asked to make a list of Halloween films for Audiences Everywhere, I wasn’t sure if I should do a best of list or my favorite Halloween films. All I knew is that I wanted the films to actually take place on Halloween. I didn’t want to list all mainstream films, but I also didn’t want to make them all obscure, so don’t worry John Carpenter’s Halloween is in the list so get your sigh of relief out now. What I came up with is a solid little list for a good Halloween horror film marathon with the perfect...

Ilsa: She Wolf of the SS

Overview:  Ilsa is an infamous and well respected warden at a Nazi prison camp.  She conducts “medical experiments’” on the camps female prisoners. Cambis Films; 1975; Unrated; 96 Minutes. The Truth: I should start by saying that in no way do I condone anything related to the Nazis or their deplorable actions, nor do I support any hatred toward any race of people. But I love exploitation films.  Even more so, I love nazisploitation. But more importantly I love Dyanne Thorne. Filming on the set of Hogan’s Heroes, director Don Edmonds created this– the greatest nazisploitation film– and brought to...

Toad Road

Overview: Spectrevision;  2012; Not Rated; 76 minutes. Strengths:  Toad Road plays out as a docu/mockumentary shot by a bunch of friends. The cast are all real life friends and the film follows them in naturalistic situations as they do drugs and progressively dumber shit .  The drug usage is not glorified as you see in most Hollywood films and it takes a dark twist away from the inebriation once a local urban legend is introduced. It’s a shorter film (which I find to be a strength) but seeing actual effects of drug use leaves a powerful impression. Tragic Side Note:  This aforementioned element is made even more impactful and terribly sad at the knowledge that the main actress, Sarah Anne Jones, whose character in the story never used an illicit substance before, died of an overdose in real life shortly after filming. Weaknesses:  The film’s major weakness is its evident lack of a script.  For the better part of the film, director Jason Banker showcases “actors”  who are just hanging out and getting fucked up. It also doesn’t help that there really isn’t one redeemable or likable character. Watch If You Like:  Requiem for a Dream and other independent cinema Suggested Alternative Title: Trip on Acid if You Want to Find Hell Grade:...
