Triskaidekafiles

Triskaidekafiles is a love letter to cheesy cinema from the 80s and 90s, with the occasional dip into other eras.  if you're a fan of MST3K, Elvira, Joe Bob Briggs, or just bad horror movies in general, Trisk is the place for you.

So let's just ignore that I have not updated the front page in six months...

Happy summer, Triskelions!  To celebrate, I've decided to dive into the lake and go for a summer long swim in slasher movies.  The slasher in the woods/slasher at camp subgenre has been a staple since at LEAST Friday the 13th.  Get your characters in a secluded area, kill 'em off when they could be believed to have wandered off and got lost.  Simple plot device, and it works SO well.  Plus, the woods are full of scary things before you even drop the guy with the machete in the shadows.

To celebrate, I am doing an entire series of reviews spotlighting slashers in the woods.  I tried for summer camp slashers, but with the few I have already done, and wanting to avoid any more Jason movies, it became difficult.  So I still have a few campers, but broadened slightly to just people camping randomly in the woods.

So enjoy Trisk's summer long SUMMER OF SLASHERS event, with the following mystery reviews!

  • JUNE 1st - Don't Go in the Woods
  • JUNE 13th - **** ****** ****
  • JUNE 26th - TRISK'S 200TH REVIEW (And not a slasher.  I had to break the pattern here)
  • JULY 1st - ********* ****
  • JULY 13th - *********** ****
  • JULY 26th - **** ****
  • AUGUST 1st - ******
  • AUGUST 13th - *** *********
  • AUGUST 26th - Trisk's annual anthology review.

And as my regular reminder, it would be a huge help to Trisk if you could swing over to Full Moon Streaming and sign up, sending some much needed fundage my way.  You get to help me keep Trisk running and get more movies, and you get to see some great terrible movies from Full Moon, many of which have already been on Trisk, or will be soon!  Watch along as I cry in pain!  I...am terrible at selling things.

You can find all the reviews on (duh) the Reviews page, starting with the newest and going backwards in time.  That's only the 30 most recent though,  so be sure to click through our Movie Cover Gallery, which has every review linked via cover artwork, broken down by the year I reviewed it.  I also will talk about new movies and tv shows, and not always bad horror stuff, in the What I'm Watching page.

Trisk can also be found on Facebook, and I urge you to like us and post stuff there!  Also, there's a ton of other social network links and even a link to e-mail me with lots of handy buttons at the bottom of this page.
