Default Cinematic Shocks - In-depth analysis on horror, exploitation and other shock cinema

Cinematic Shocks is my new blog. I will be publishing a new article on average once a week applying intelligible in-depth analysis to horror, exploitation and other shocking cinema.

At this moment, there are 42 pieces for you to read. These include two brand new reviews exclusive to the site - check out my write ups of Thriller: A Cruel Picture (1974) and Deadbeat at Dawn (1988). There are 35 updated versions of all of my articles from my old blog all fully revised and are now much better reads. There are also links to 5 of my reviews up on Zombie Keeper.

So join me on this journey and I hope you enjoy your reads. To begin reading click here.

Thank you all very much for reading,

Dave J. Wilson

Thank you very much, mate. That is really cool to hear as I always try to write the most interesting pieces that I can to make for the best possible reads.

On with business...

I have just published my massive feature article -

A Nightmare on Elm Street Part 2: Freddy's Revenge (1985) - A Nightmarishly Underrated Sequel

I will be making some changes to the layout of the blog next week to make for easier site navigation.

Thanks for reading,

Check out my review of the 1981 slasher The Prowler.

I published this piece a bit later than planned due to constant changes I had to make to the blog's layout. My next article should be up on the site a bit sooner. It also isn't the film I originally intended to write about but I needed to get something up for this week and I didn't have much time. I already had the research together for the review and slashers are easy to write about so I went with the logical choice.

Thanks for reading.

Check out my article The Progression of a Filmmaker: Three Short Films by Jeremiah Kipp with links to two of the shorts and information about the other and be sure to watch the trailer included for Kipp's upcoming feature debut 'The Sadist' starring Tom Savini due out later this year.

I got this piece up a lot later than planned. I usually like to publish a new aritcle on average at least once a week and here is my one for last week. I'm getting back on track though and I will have a new review up at the latest this Sunday.

Thanks for reading.

Check out my review of the short film House Call (2011).

There should be some changes soon with a new banner for the blog's header that will be unique to the site and will help promote the brand name of Cinematic Shocks. I will also be putting together a links page with a list of banners of recommended blogs and websites.

Thanks for reading.

I have just published my review of Gutterballs (2008).

Cinematic Shocks now has its own unique banner for its header and I just got the news today that a few more are on the way. A big thank you to David Grant the writer of the brilliant site Films That Witness Madness for taking the time out of his busy schedule to put them together.

I have also made a SITES OF INTEREST page with a list of banners of blogs and websites you should check out. So get on over there.

Thanks for reading,

Dave J. Wilson

Starting next week, I will be publishing two new reviews per week. More quantity does not mean less quality though as I will still be putting in the exact same care and effort into each article to make for the best possible reads. In the case of a feature then it will be just the one piece for a week but other than that it will be two new reviews per week from now on unless other commitments dictates otherwise.

I’ll be doing write ups of new releases in the next couple of weeks.

Thanks for reading,

Dave J. Wilson

Check out my review of The Wicker Tree (2011).

I know it's been a while since my last update, but from now on I will be publishing a new article twice a week with the first piece up every Wednesday and the second up every Friday. So, you will know when to check back for new material from me. You will also know what to expect to see on Cinematic Shocks every week from the new 'COMING ATTRACTIONS' section at the top of the right column.

Thanks for reading,

Dave J. Wilson

Check out my review of C.H.U.D. (1984).

This is the first of five of my articles to be published over five consecutive days this week that were originally up on the now defunct horror film review website Zombie Keeper. All pieces will be fully revised to make for better reads.

Thanks for reading.

Check out my feature article Death Wish II (1982) - A Quintessential Piece of Exploitative Revenge.

This will be the last feature I will write for quite some time and the plan to publish two new reviews per week is now on the backburner. From now on for a good while, Cinematic Shocks will be updated every Friday as a bi-weekly blog of in-depth reviews of around about 1000 words each.

I know this was my first update in two weeks but from now on, you can expect a new review from me every Friday without fail. I would like to write more features and publish a couple of reviews every week but I have other stuff going on. So, check back to the site every Friday for new material from me.

Thanks for reading,

Dave J. Wilson

Check out my review of Vice Squad (1982).

My schedule is freeing up, so from next Friday I will definitely be getting into the routine of publishing a new piece once a week on that same day. My aim is to make Cinematic Shocks a bi-weekly blog of in-depth reviews of around about 1000 words each.

The only exception I will be making is for special events. Disturbing Films' first annual Vampire Week is coming up at the end of next month and I will be providing three reviews during that week with a retrospective on the Fright Night franchise. I will be re-publishing two old reviews of '30 Days of Night: Dark Days' and 'Martin' between these articles.

My contributions will go up between Monday 23rd and Friday 27th July.

Thanks for putting up with the lack of new material from me as of late and thanks for sticking with Cinematic Shocks during its fledgling days.
