The Ray Bradbury Theater: The Black Ferris (1990) – CARNIVAL HORROR TV REVIEW

By Geno McGahee Ray Bradbury obviously had a hard on for carnivals. In 1983, he wrote SOMETHING WICKED THIS WAY COMES and that movie was terrible despite the fact that a carnival is the ideal setting for a horror movie. Seven years after that flick, perhaps Bradbury wanted to redeem himself with THE BLACK FERRIS, […]

The Ray Bradbury Theater: A Miracle of Rare Device (1989) – TV SHOW REVIEW

By Geno McGahee I’m not a big fan of that futuristic wasteland sort of movie…the Mad Max stuff. So, maybe I would like this better if I was a fan of that look and that situation, but then again, I’m not sure if this is a wasteland or the future or what the fuck is […]

The Ray Bradbury Theater: The Veldt (1989) – TV SHOW REVIEW

By Geno McGahee Ray Bradbury liked futuristic stuff, but I guess that makes sense. He was considered a sci-fi writer and a great deal of sci-fi stuff takes place in the future, but this was the 1980’s version of the future. I grew up in the 1980s and loved it and when I watch these […]

The Ray Bradbury Theater: THE FRUIT AT THE BOTTOM OF THE BOWL (1988) – Michael Ironside EPISODE HORROR REVIEW

By Geno McGahee I get the sneaking suspicion that Ray Bradbury dealt with a lot of assholes in his rise to fame. After watching so many of his stories, there is a common theme. If the lead is a writer, which many of them are, they deal with somebody either totally dismissing them or outright […]

The Ray Bradbury Theater: THE MAN UPSTAIRS (1989) – VAMPIRE ALIEN EPISODE HORROR REVIEW

By Geno McGahee What if you had a vampire living upstairs from you? What if that vampire did absolutely nothing wrong and was just on vacation? This tale really is about vampire hate and how it drove one troubled boy to commit murder. This Ray Bradbury Theater episode “THE MAN UPSTAIRS” is very odd and […]

The Ray Bradbury Theater: THE TOWN WHERE NO ONE GOT OFF (1986) – Jeff Goldblum TV EPISODE HORROR REVIEW

By Geno McGahee The year 1986 was a breakout year for Jeff Golblum as he starred in the horror film “THE FLY.” OK, maybe he didn’t capitalize on it as he should have, following up with movies like VIBES and EARTH GIRLS ARE EASY, but showing his great talent, his career survived those speed bumps […]

The Ray Bradbury Theater: THE COFFIN (1988) – TV EPISODE HORROR REVIEW

By Geno McGahee The 1980s was a big time for robots. There was a genuine fascination with them that led to many toy manufactures to create radio-controlled robots for the consumer. I remember wanting one, but my fat cousin got one instead. I never trusted him alone with that robot either, by the way. I’m […]

The Ray Bradbury Theater: THE EMISSARY (1988) – ZOMBIE TV EPISODE HORROR REVIEW

By Geno McGahee The Ray Bradbury Theater series is absolutely a mixed bag. There are some real scares and some very interesting, but not so scary, stories. Then there are tales like THE EMISSARY that wanted badly to be a straight drama but squeezed in a horror element to get it a pass. I had […]

The Ray Bradbury Theater: GOTCHA (1988) – TV EPISODE HORROR REVIEW

By Geno McGahee In like a lamb and out like a lion. The episode “GOTCHA” of the Ray Bradbury Theater begins very mellow, but it begins to slowly turn up the suspense leading to a very creepy ending. John (Saul Rubinek) goes to a costume party dressed like Oliver Hardy from the LAUREL & HARDY […]

The Ray Bradbury Theater: The Lake (1989) – Paranormal HORROR TV REVIEW

By Geno McGahee Lakes can be creepy and that is the setting for the 1989 Ray Bradbury Theater episode titled “THE LAKE.” Everyone has known somebody that has drowned at a lake and it is especially tragic when it’s a child. In this episode, we visit the death of Telly (Jessica Billingsley), a young girl […]
