Phobia Movie Review

Nov 27, 2014 1 Comment by

In case you haven’t figured it out by now, psychological horror is kind of my “thing.”  I’ll watch anything, but nothing gets under my skin in just the right way quite like a good, meaty mind-fuck movie that raises some serious questions about the nature of reality.

Nov 25, 2014 No Comments by

This past Halloween, in lieu of tormenting the kids who were trick-or-treating in my neighborhood, I decided to take a three to four-hour road trip to Columbus, OH.

The Butchers Movie Review

Nov 06, 2014 No Comments by

Director Steven Paul Judd’s The Butchers has a familiar premise: Strangers on a journey become mired in a strange situation.

Horns: Book vs. Movie

Nov 04, 2014 3 Comments by

As a very big fan of Joe Hill’s sophomore novel Horns, I was awaiting Alexandre Aja’s film adaptation with much anticipation.
