Film Reviews

Empire International/Full Moon Films

This page will serve as a main hub for all my reviews of Empire International, Full Moon and other Charles Band related films. As I complete them, this will be updated with links to the reviews. I’ve tried to make this list chronological and comprehensive, but I’m probably missing or wrong a few details. I’m not too worried about it though. And yes, I do plan on working my way through every one of these as long as I can find them (some of these are fairly obscure), so obviously this is going to be going on for quite a while. I realize how ridiculous this must look to even bother watching some of these, but I’m gonna give it go. As long as they’re fun, I’m game. Compilation films have been removed from the list.

  1. Great list! I think with enough popcorn and Tequila you might even be able to get through the whole thing. : ) And looking through the titles I think I’d like to revisit some of the Classic Band films. Thanks!

    • So far I haven’t been burned too bad by these, although Underworld and Dreamaniac were pretty bottom of the barrel stuff. I’m optimistic that I’ll make it through though! Charles Band has definitely presided over some fun films. Check out Zone Troopers if you never saw it, it’s fun.

      • It’s definitely hit and miss. I noticed you’ve got “The Dead Hate the Living” on your list. I remember really liking this one. It has a great, low-budget “we’re making a horror flick and loving it” energy to it. Fun stuff!

        • Yeah that list is just everything with Charles Band’s name on it, so I’ll definitely eventually get to that one. I just looked it up and it looks fun! So far I’ve been working somewhat chronological, starting with the Empire International films, but I’m thinking right now that maybe I should jump around more as I’m unsure of the quality of a lot of the later stuff.

  2. Yeah, I think if I were you I would. Maybe even stagger them. Watch an old one, then a newer one. Whatever you choose, it’s one helluva project! : )

    • Hahaha yeah it’s gonna be a while before I’m done! I think I will jump around a bit more though, so I can have 80s and 90s movies to jump back to when the newer ones possibly disappoint.

      • I definitely think jumping around will help you get through some of these films. But you may want to sit while watching a few of them too. ; )

        • hahahaha yeah good one. I have been known to pause a movie and “do a lap around the room” to wake myself up, but jumping around may be a better idea.
