Why is Rings (2017) a Matilda Lutz fanfilm?

I started watching a horror movie and a teen drama broke out. I was like, what? What’s this? Why are there hot college girls in tight clothing in this movie? Why does that… Continue reading

Bad or Good: Alien – Covenant

Alien: Covenant (2017) looks like it’s another divisive movie from Ridley Scott.  Don’t get me wrong, this movie has a lot of flaws, and I saw a crappy review on arrowinthehead.com giving it… Continue reading

Life versus The Power Rangers

There was no way I was seeing a Power Rangers movie, so I watched Jake Gyllenhaal and Ryan Reynolds fight an alien.  Life has a lot of good things going for it, and it does… Continue reading

The Final Saw (Until the Next One)

Saw: The Final Chapter (2010) or Saw 3D is the supposed end of the Saw franchise, and it dies with a paper thin plot and very stupid characters.  As with previous Saw films,… Continue reading

31 Days of Halloween #31 – Silence of the Lambs Mega-Analysis

So now it’s time for my overly wordy analysis of the 31st movie on this year’s marathon list, The Silence of the Lambs.  To say this psychological horror movie is a classic is an… Continue reading

31 Days of Halloween 2016 #2 – Halloween 2

I guess everyone can agree Halloween II (1981) is a retread and a poor sequel, but who can live up to the original Halloween?  When you’re a movie that’s inspired a whole genre… Continue reading

31 Days of Halloween 2016 #3 – Dr. Phibes

I was torn between Little Shop of Horrors and The Abominable Dr. Phibes for what to watch, and I guess I’ve made up my mind that I really hate both of them.  Little… Continue reading

31 Days of Halloween 2016 #4 – It’s a Chopping Celebration

When you commit to the slasher, you either commit to it or you’re just another I Know What you Did Last Summer crappy teen movie, but Hatchet (2006) isn’t one of those.  It… Continue reading

31 Days of Halloween 2016 #5 – The Vampire Motorcycle

What makes a good bad movie?  I Bought a Vampire Motorcycle (1990) is a movie that’s bad on purpose, not like Battlefield Earth or something, but it’s debatable if it’s so bad it’s… Continue reading

31 Days of Halloween 2016 #6 – Dracula, Prince of Darkness

Dracula, Prince of Darkness is one of the better Hammer horror movies, but I could have used at least a word or two from Christopher Lee.  This movie sorta features Christopher Lee and… Continue reading

31 Days of Halloween 2016 #7 – Jacob’s Ladder: An Analysis

All horror twists owe something to Jacob’s Ladder.  This movie is about death, obsessing and holding onto lost love ones, and the nature of memory.  The movie itself is weird like a David… Continue reading

31 Days of Halloween 2016 #8 – Rasputin is Mad

To coincide with the celebration of Christopher Lee, this marathon takes a look at Rasputin, the Mad Monk from 1966.  This movie is underrated.  When I first saw it, it was on a… Continue reading

The Walking Dead – ep 7.1 – Has it gone too far?

Unfortunately, the media had a harsh reaction to season seven premiere of The Walking Dead, some going so far as to suggest that the show bordered on torture porn.  I think intense and gritty and… Continue reading

31 Days of Halloween 2016 #9 – They Live

I haven’t met anyone yet who doesn’t like They Live, much less anybody who enjoys their movies with a side of social commentary.  Admittedly, the movie stops short of diving into its main theme,… Continue reading

31 Days of Halloween 2016 #10 – Spencer Tracy as Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde

Which version of this story is best?  There’s plenty of versions to choose from.  Most people prefer the 1931 version, with the goofy Hyde and over-the-top performances.  The 1941 version starring Spencer Tracy… Continue reading
