Horror B-Sides: The Gift (2000)

Growing tired of our lackluster choices so far this month, we here at Behind the Hype decided to try out a different horror filmmaker’s b-sides to see if we might be able to turn this ship around. We chose Sam Raimi’s “The Gift,” which unfortunately was nowhere near as good as we had hoped and featured almost nothing that we could recognize as a Raimi’ism. It wasn’t completely terrible and had some interesting bright spots, but it’s certainly an odd duck in our month of odd duck films.

Horror B-Sides: Mimic (1997)

A creature feature with human-sized bugs eating people in subways seems like it was tailor-made for the talents of Guillermo Del Toro, but alas, that is not what we got. Mimic should have been so much better than it was, but its parts did not work together to create a cohesive whole. We break down all the things that didn’t work, and point out some of the Del Toro staples that could have been so much more if…well…there had been so much more.

Horror B-Sides: The Serpent and the Rainbow (1988)

After a bit of a forced hiatus, we’re back and excited to take a deep dive into what we think will be an awesome month of films. The theme is Horror B-Sides, and what that means is we’re discussing some of the most famous horror directors and their “not-so-popular” fare. This week it’s Wes Craven and his Voodoo Zombie Horror Film “The Serpent and the Rainbow.” Is it a long-forgotten treasure or should it be dusted into oblivion and buried alive? Join us to find out.
