Its the moooost wonderful tiiiiime of the yeaaaarrrrr….. OCTOBER, Halloweenmas! And we at Horribly Hooched are celebrating by doing 31 for 31, or a new horror movie every night for the entire month of October!

Why I watch Horror, an editorial   Recently updated !

The horror community recently lost the legendary Wes Craven to brain cancer on August 30th. Having grown up on his work, and been shaped by it, it hit me pretty hard. His unique brand of storytelling and adroit handling of prose and dialog always made an impact, whether I was shaking from fear or laughter. […]

Oktoberfest The Movie!

Any fan of this site is likely as large a fan of booze as we are…and any self respecting Hooch Hound will understand the pure unadulterated glory that the Oktoberfest celebration can be. Short of Mardi Gras its hands down one of the most balls out epic festivals of the year. Take that, and the […]



Red Eye (2005)

As most of you are undoubtedly aware, Wes Craven left this mortal coil on August 30th, to the wailing and haunted tears of horror fans around the world. We here at Horribly Hooched wanted to celebrate the wonderful work of this wonderfully morbid and gruesome visionary all month – so i’m kicking things off with […]

Nightbreed (The Director’s Cut) (1990)

Hello Meat Sacks. Welcome to the inaugural review of the newly-reformatted Wasted Wednesdays. This week we’re looking at a recently re-released cult film from one of the modern gods of horror, Clive Barker. Back in the late 80’s, some genius thought it would be a good idea to give Clive a bunch of dough to […]



They Live (1988) & RIP Roddy Piper

(WARNING: This article is a heartfelt eulogy to “Rowdy” Roddy Piper, and a serious rim-job of “They Live”. We will return you to your regularly scheduled booze-fueled rants next week.)   Hello Meat Sacks. If you were a child of the 80’s then one of the major cultural figures of your youth was probably….Hulk Hogan. […]

The Best Horror on Netflix RIGHT NOW! (July)

Hey y’all! We’re approaching the 4th of July weekend, and for most of us that means hoochin’! And what better companion to that glass than a decent horror flick? Welp, I’ll do the heavy lifting (and drinking) for you and let ya know what’s good on Netflix right now. For this list I’m aiming for […]



Horsehead (2014) – Check your psychoactives at the door 2

“There is nothing in the world more helpless and irresponsible and depraved than a man in the depths of an ether binge.” DRINK OF CHOICE This film is an absolute mindfuck, and to adequately prepare you for the insanity that’s waiting I suggest you rock the Pan-Galactic Gargle Blaster. Described as having ones brains smashed out […]

Night of the Seagulls (La noche de los gaviotas) (1975)

Hello Meat Sacks. Today we’re dipping into a subset of the zombie genre that never really gets much love, the Spanish Blind Dead movies. Though not revolutionary, these films definitely stand out from the pack of ordinary undead movies due to their production quality and creative take on the genre. The Blind Dead themselves are arguably […]



Forbidden Forest

Released in 1983 Created by Paul Norman/Cosmi Corp for Atari and Commodore 64 Size: 512Kb Genre: Action Greetings, my fellow video game masochists! The time has come to review a very important game to me. Important and dear to my heart. Indeed, Forbidden Forest was the first game I ever played that scared the HOLY […]

Interview with Ross Patterson on Helen Keller vs Nightwolves

  Ross Patterson, often known by his alias Saint James St. James, is something of a legend around these parts. You’ll know him from such pants dropping films as ‘Poolboy: Drowning in Fury’ and ‘FDR: American Badass!’ – soon, though, you’ll know him for something else. Helen Keller vs Nightwolves took the internet by storm when […]



Here Comes the Devil (2012) – Ahi Va El Diablo

I realized that for these themed months I’d been treading water in familiar territory, reviewing films that fit the chosen genre and that I also loved. Can’t blame a guy for being eager to share whats near and dear to his heart, can ya? Well, no more! While researching popular horror films that were also available […]

The Devil’s Backbone (El espinazo del diablo) (2001)

Hello Meat Sacks. We’re paying homage to Spanish language horror around these parts throughout the month of May, which means a lot of really spooky films are gonna get watched, and a lot of tequila and frijoles are gonna be consumed. Which means the ol’ Uncle Frank headquarters is gonna smell something awful come June. […]



Tremors (1990)

Hello Meat Sacks. You monkeys have no doubt heard of the term “B-Movie”. It originally referred to low-budget films that acted as supporting time-killers in double features, and often meant the movie was cheesy or exploitative, and often a genre film. In my opinion, some of the best films of all time were B-Movies, and […]

Piranha 3D (2010) – DYING to get WET

“Piranha hunt in packs. The first bite…draws the blood…the blood…draws the pack” Wrapping up the wonderful (S)Laughter Month over here at Horribly Hooched, the final film I’ll be reviewing is Piranha 3D. Released in 2010, I could never really nail down what it was that attracted me so much to the film. Besides, of course, the […]

Piranha 3D (2010) - DYING to get WET


Frailty (2002) 1

Hello Meat Sacks. (S)Laughter Month is in full swing here at Horribly Hooched. However, ol’ Uncle Frank got a rather large and insistent hair up his ass to re-watch a certain under-appreciated gem which has fallen through the cracks of horror history. Unfortunately for the theme of the month, it has about as many giggles […]

WolfCop (2014) – Here comes the fuzz!

Officer Lou Garou has run afoul of more bottles than actual criminals in his tenure as town sheriff, but when things get a little…hairy…he literally rises to the challenge, in more ways than one (I’m talkin about his fuck stick). DRINK OF CHOICE Whiskey and beer. Seems to be the choice of late…but something about WolfCop reminded […]

Leprechaun 5: In The Hood (2000)

Hello Meat Sacks. It is time to finally put to rest the fifth entry in the “Leprechaun” series of films, which your trusty band of sotted miscreants here at Horribly Hooched have been attempting to screen and review since good ol’ St. Paddy’s Day. This time around, the titular squirrely little green bastard finds himself […]

Leprechaun 4: In Space (1996) 1

Hello Meat Sacks. So ol’ Uncle Frank signed on to review some of the “Leprechaun” movies back around St. Paddy’s Day and he’s just getting around to them, because work and booze. Full disclosure, I’ve never seen a frame of a “Leprechaun” movie, as they always seemed like they’d be a stupid waste of my […]

Dead Heat (1988)

Hello Meat Sacks. Wanna get your yuks on with some good old-fashioned cornball shit? Then have I got the movie for you. Take “Lethal Weapon”, cross it with “Return of the Living Dead”, throw in a dash of “Re-Animator”, and then dial your expectations back a hair, and you got “Dead Heat”. That’s all the […]
