FLAME ON! Yeah, my beloved Splatstick subgenre (EVIL DEAD trilogy!) usually has plenty of action.
I do like the BLADE series, VAMPIRES, BROTHERHOOD OF THE WOLF, DOG SOLDIERS, END OF DAYS, THE HIDDEN, PITCH BLACK, DAWN OF THE DEAD remake, FROM DUSK TIL DAWN (even the DTV sequels), as others have mentioned.EVIL ALIENS
, THE CONVENT
, and (acquired tastes) BLOODY MALLORY and ANGEL OF THE NIGHT
are fun schlock.
ALIEN and PREDATOR series and their numerous knock-offs from DOOM to DNA offer a varied amount of entertainment.
DEEP RISING, PLANET TERROR, SPLIT SECOND, FULL ECLIPSE, VERSUS
BIG TROUBLE IN LITTLE CHINA, HELLBOY, THE MUMMY, TREMORS, CARNOSAUR, OMEGA MAN, DARK PORTALS (VIDOCQ), and THE GUYVER dabble a bit in action/horror.
Uwe Boll flicks (HOUSE OF THE DEAD, ALONE IN THE DARK, BLOODRAYNE) and Asylum's I AM OMEGA are shit, but are good for a drunken MST3K party session.
The SANTO and TOXIC AVENGER franchises!
The HK Zombie-Vampire genre (MR. VAMPIRE, etc).
Adult Swim's live-action STIFF
, the web cartoon and comic XOMBIE
, the comic books HACK AND SLASH and SPOOKS, anime like VAMPIRE HUNTER D and BLOOD: THE LAST VAMPIRE (plus others), BUFFY and ANGEL tv series.
COLD AND DARK was forgettable. HORRORS OF WAR was ok, OUTPOST was better.Sorry, I'm also a guilty UNDERWORLD and RESIDENT EVIL fan... Please don't take away my Corner Club card.
The subpar (AKA cruddy) LEGION OF THE DEAD
, SHIRA: THE VAMPIRE SAMURAI
, GUARDIAN OF THE REALM
, MATTHEW BLACKHEART: MONSTER SMASHER, and RAZOR BLADE SMILE
left a lot to be desired, but are worth a completist (sorry, can't help it) mention.
EDIT: Avoid VAMPIRE ASSASSIN and AVIA VAMPIRE HUNTER at all costs! You've been warned.
Anyone see/recommend the cheesy-looking GABRIEL
