Horror film originality was and is a hard thing to come by. The genre is replete with derivative, and often times, unmemorable dreck.

The Chiodo brothers managed to do just that in 1988 with the fan favorite, Killer Klowns from Outer Space.In case you have be... Read More

It was called the Wild, Wild West for a reason.  There was lawlessness across the open plains and a feud brewed between the white people and the Indians.  The American troops tried their best to keep things orderly but it seemed to have little effect.  As Captain Joseph Blocker (Christian Bale; The Dark Knight) transports dying priso...
