Pet Sematary Movie Review

Apr 08, 2019 No Comments

It is truly a wonderful time to be a fan of one Stephen King. When a new novel isn’t being released, there’s a Netflix or a Hulu series premiering. King’s works have seen the silver screen treatment more regularly over the last decade or so than just about any other time in the history of […]

I just watched, then re-watched Blood Bound (2019) — a film that comes to us from writer/director Richard LeMay, Bloodline Productions, and Garden House Entertainment.

Fighting the Sky Movie Review

Feb 22, 2019 No Comments

“Keep watching the skies!” That was the warning issued at the end of the original Thing from Another World, one of the more notable films that ushered in the age of alien invaders. Over 60 years later, the invaders are still coming in films both bombastic (Independence Day) and thought-provoking (the more recent Arrival). Budget […]

The Harrowing Movie Review

Jan 21, 2019 No Comments

In The Harrowing, director Jon Keeyes delivers a protracted opening that begins as intriguing cop drama and ends as cannibalistic camp. The former is fascinating; the latter is ludicrous. But in good time, the two somehow are effectively intertwined, turning what might have been a total disaster into a crime thriller that pulsates with tension […]

Lifechanger Movie Review

Jan 09, 2019 No Comments

The history of horror is chock full of stories of good people who, by poor judgment or just bad luck, become monsters. The Wolfman (1941), Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde (1932), and The Fly (1958 and 1986) are just a few examples. They all deliver scares, but each protagonist’s struggle to hold onto his humanity […]

The Demonologist Movie Review

Jan 02, 2019 No Comments

Chocolate and peanut butter. Chicken and waffles. Beer and pretzels. Some combinations just make sense. For instance, horror and mystery are very, very comfortable bedfellows. Both focus on the weird and macabre and are only delineated because one tends to focus on the temporal, rational world. The Demonologist is no such mystery. This occult thriller […]

Christmas Blood Movie Review

Dec 20, 2018 1 Comment

Christmas Blood – which sounds infinitely more menacing in its native Norwegian, Juleblod – lives up to the simple promise of its name. Director Reinert Kiil has created a delightfully grotesque gore-fest that nevertheless delivers some substance beyond the gallons of blood spilled on the screen. If you’ve exhausted your Christmas horror watch-list and need […]

Mrs. Claus Movie Review

Dec 12, 2018 No Comments

Mrs. Claus, written and directed by Troy Escamilla, is a holiday horror that follows in the footprints of classics like Black Christmas or Silent Night, Deadly Night. There’s something irresistible about the desire to corrupt the wholesomeness of the holiday season, and Mrs. Claus delivers blood and mayhem in a gift-wrapped package. Mrs. Claus opens […]

Blessed Are the Children Movie Review

Dec 05, 2018 No Comments

What would you do with $1,000? Take a trip somewhere? Go on a spree? Well, writer/director Chris Moore decided to take a thousand bucks and make a horror movie about dead babies, or something like that.  A strange tale called Blessed Are the Children shows us the deadly toll that one bad decision can take.
