Terror in the Skies Documentary Review

Jun 05, 2019 No Comments

Giant birds snatching children out of yards. Terrifying man-bird hybrids stalking the countryside in the middle of the night. Pterodactyls screaming through the clouds! Welcome to Illinois, folks! I have always been fascinated with the weird and strange stories of the Land of Lincoln. The state has quite a reputation as a hotspot for weird […]

Winterskin Movie Review

May 29, 2019 No Comments

Does a movie centered on an old woman and a wounded young man stuck in a cabin in a desolate wintry landscape sound scary? What if one were to add in the premise of skinless monsters hellbent on flaying and eating the skin of their victims? Winterskin from director Charlie Steeds certainly has a lot […]

On the Trail of Bigfoot Documentary Review

May 21, 2019 No Comments

It takes a whole team of gumshoes to find one Bigfoot. Small Town Monsters (the production team that brought you The Bray Road Beast, and my personal favorite, The Mothman of Point Pleasant) offers up a six-part investigative miniseries on the monster so monstrous he has his own monster truck. The Hulk Hogan of cryptozoology. […]

This gem comes to us from writer Stuart Flack and director Tommy Stovall (Hate Crime, Aaron’s Blood).

Scary Stories Documentary Review

May 09, 2019 No Comments

There is a particularly potent quote in Scary Stories, filmmaker Cody Meirick’s documentary about the work of celebrated children’s horror story author Alvin Schwartz, that resonates long after the screen goes dark. Oddly, it’s not about Schwartz but about fellow children’s literature icon R.L. Stine. In this recollection, Stine talks of meeting the world’s most […]

How Technology Influences Horror Movies

May 01, 2019 No Comments

It has been over twenty years since Ringu hit our screens with a vengeance. Never before had one little girl been so utterly terrifying. The key to the movie’s success was the fact that it featured technology we find in our own homes—the simple videotape—to bring fear, death and bloody destruction. It certainly wasn’t difficult to imagine Sadako, […]

American Poltergeist: The Curse of Lilith Ratchet Movie Review

Apr 17, 2019 2 Comments

Lizzie Borden meet Lilith Ratchet. She stole your modus operandi if not your mojo. Liz preferred an axe, Lil a hatchet. But the biggest difference here is that one is a real-life original, the other a cheap imitation stuffed into a cheap film with cheap effects. Oops, I just gave away the thrust of this […]

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. It’s about a troubled teen girl who’s chosen by a coven of witches to take part in a ritual that happens every 25 years in order to maintain their immortality. […]
