The Toybox Movie Review

Sep 13, 2018 No Comments

Imagine the best elements of a haunted house inhabiting a recreational vehicle.

Aug 22, 2018 No Comments

Made in 13 days and for $8000, writer/director/producer Joe Badon’s The God Inside My Ear is a darkly funny, highly trippy and just flat out weird tale. About what, you ask? Well, THAT is the million-dollar question. It might be about a breakup between an oddball guy and his oddball girlfriend, and all of the […]

German Angst Movie Review

Jul 25, 2018 No Comments

Upon seeing the trailer for German Angst from Artsploitation Films, I was excited. As you may know by now, I’m a sucker for a good horror anthology. Anyway, after seeing that there was an offering from Jorg Buttgereit (Nekromantik, Nekromantik 2) included, I became downright giddy as I’m a fan of his other works. The […]

Terrifier Movie Review

Jul 19, 2018 No Comments

Whether they’re killer ones from outer space, dancing or selling fried chicken, clowns are frighteningly memorable and nearly everyone has a love/hate relationship with at least one. In writer/director Damien Leone’s Terrifier, the harlequin-styled Art the Clown (originally debuting in Leone’s All Hallows’ Eve [2013]) returns to give us a fantastically satisfying grindhouse gorefest that’s […]

Hereditary Movie Review

My husband and I decided to take in an afternoon showing of Ari Aster’s Hereditary recently, curious to see if it lived up to the hype of being called the scariest movie ever, or to see if it was deserving of the hate that it’s been getting since its release. Admittedly, the trailers for this […]
