LOVECRAFT COUNTRY Episode 1: Sundown Review

Aug 20, 2020 No Comments

It’s a great time to be a fan of H.P. Lovecraft. If you want proof, just look at all the controversy over his racism. Hear me out, fellow cultists. I’ve written elsewhere about parsing Lovecraft’s antisemitism as a Jew (TL;DR, it was a rare instance of malignant illogicality on the part of a generally decent, […]

All Hail the Popcorn King Movie Review

Aug 13, 2020 No Comments

Joe R. Lansdale is the Mark Twain of genre fiction. I can’t think of a more thoroughly American horror writer, with the possible exception of Ambrose Bierce. But for all Bierce’s brilliance, his vision was sharply defined by unwavering misanthropy and cynicism. Lansdale, like Twain, has range. He’s done horror, crime fiction, Westerns, comics, and […]

Wrestlemassacre Movie Review: A Cinematic Death Match

Jul 31, 2020 No Comments

Greetings, sports fans! Time for a confession. When I’m not hacking up bodies in the lab or working on ways to resurrect them, I do like to occasionally kick back and relax with athletic competition. Traditional “sports ball” games don’t engage me that much, but when it comes to the grunt and groan antics of […]

Baby Frankenstein Movie Review

Jul 24, 2020 No Comments

So, I just watched what just may be the most terrifying horror movie of 2020 thus far. Surprisingly, this film has nothing to do with terrible worldwide pandemics or corrupt politics. In fact, what it does deal with is something far more horrible. My friends, this nightmare of a film is called Baby Frankenstein, brought […]

Dark backstories, mind-boggling characters, and horrifying houses are standard in horror films, and for good reason. Over the past several decades horror films have evolved, keeping this subgenre fresh, but these staples are ever present. In fact, the horror genre grossed over $1 billion at the box office in 2018, revealing that moviegoers are still […]

Luz Movie Review

Jun 18, 2020 No Comments

The receptionist in a police precinct lobby blindly goes about his work when an obviously injured woman enters. She stares at him for several minutes; he does not look up. She haltingly, agonizingly walks toward a vending machine, buys a can of soda, drinks it. She eases her way back toward the door, looks again […]

The Luring Movie Review

Jun 11, 2020 No Comments

Like many of you, I’ve been looking for some decent, satisfying horror to watch during these crazy times. The horror offerings on many of the streaming platforms have been tame for the most part. I haven’t seen anything new that’s blown my mind or made me excited. This makes me a sad Barb. However, after […]

Ouijageist Movie Review

Jun 04, 2020 No Comments

Why on Earth would anybody mess around with a Ouija board? Judging from the awful results of using one seen in dozens of movies and TV shows over the years, you’d have to be a few McNuggets shy of a Happy Meal to try contacting the spirits by means of Ouija. Seriously, can you name […]
