About Me

Exclamation Mark and his trusty Blue Heeler, Elsa.

Like a lot of kids of my generation, I was introduced to B-movie horror and science fiction films through a local “creature feature.” Each Friday night I would stay up late with my little brother (and sometimes my best friend, Tony) to watch rubber-suited monsters nab beautiful women, or alien beings attempt to blend in with Earthling society.

​Those hours enraptured in front of the television with my brother and friend are some of my favorite childhood memories. This site is an extension of those memories. I am not so much a critic as I am a person who enjoys spouting off about the movies that have made such an impact on my life. In my mind, this page is just as much a tribute page as it is a source for reviews.

The rating system I use (the exclamation marks) is an extremely general gauge and is there primarily for your amusement. You’ll get a more accurate idea of how I feel about a film by reading the actual review.

As a general rule, I do not review films that are less than 25 years old. However, if I should see fit to review a newer film, I reserve that right. So there.

Understanding the rating system:

! = Just terrible.

!! = For hardcore genre fans only.

!!! = Good fun.

!!!! = Great fun, nearing classic status.

!!!!! = Classic film and/or B-movie Gold.

Personal Bio: I was born into a large family (6 brothers, 2 sisters) in 1962. I graduated from an Iowa college with a B.A. in English, and minors in Art, Religion, and Computer Science. I work at a youth care shelter for children who have been removed from their homes due to abuse, neglect and/or delinquent behaviors. I abide in the state of Iowa, United States of America, with a Blue Heeler named Elsa (after Elsa Lanchester) and two cats, Callie and Allie.
