31 Days of Halloween 2016 #18 – Strange Elvis

Bubba Ho-Tep (2016) is a movie so strange, I’m almost too weirded out to laugh.  Elvis is still alive and living in an old folks home with his buddy, the African American JFK,… Continue reading

31 Days of Halloween 2016 – #19 JoyRide (2001) with Paul Walker and LeeLee Sobieski

There’s absolutely nothing original about this film, but at least it doesn’t insult your intelligence and it’s certainly way more entertaining than other flicks in this sometimes-stupid young-people-acting-like-teens horror genre.   There’s all… Continue reading

31 Days of Halloween 2016 – #20 Silver Bullet (1985) and Stephen King

This film was not highly anticipated and nearly departed theaters as fast as it arrived.  It’s a decent movie, but there are other movies way better, like An American Werewolf in London and The… Continue reading

Top Ten Actors With Beards

This list is brought to you by top ten lists that mean something.  We’ve got bearded men this time around, and they better be well-groomed to make this list.  Sorry Keanu.  You’re out!… Continue reading

31 Days of Halloween #21 – Brazil’s first horror film

Now it’s time to expand my horizons, if I’m not already doing that with upteen indie films on this list.  Who needs Jason Voorhees when you’ve got a Portuguese guy screaming bloody murder?… Continue reading

31 Days of Halloween 2016 #22 – The TryHard Exorcist III

I’ve thought about reviewing The Exorcist III several times over the years because it’s an interesting subject.  You’ve got the Exorcist angle and the sequel angle, which is obvious, but I think maybe this… Continue reading

31 Days of Halloween 2016 #23 – There’s a lot of running in Aggression Scale (2012)

There’s something gritty and real about The Aggression Scale (2012), which makes it a good indie movie.  I’ve got a couple indie movies on the Halloween countdown this year and many people probably haven’t seen them.… Continue reading

31 Days of Halloween #24 – Frenzy (1972) is the most controversial Hitchcock movie ever made

Frenzy is the most controversial movie Hitchcock ever made.  It’s certainly not spoken of in the same breath as Psycho and Vertigo, and I think that’s largely because of the controversy surrounding its… Continue reading

31 Days of Halloween 2016 – #25 Splinter (2008) is a movie at a gas station

I can’t remember how I heard about Splinter (2008), the movie everybody missed at the movies because it earned like five dollars, so this is really an indie film.  It stars nobody you… Continue reading

31 Days of Halloween #26 The Haunting inside…

The Haunting (1963) is somewhat of an acquired taste at this point, but you can’t deny the effectiveness of the atmosphere and the hidden meanings.  This is a movie in the vein of… Continue reading

31 Days of Halloween 2016 – #27 Bad Moon (1996) Gets Dogged

No dogs were hurt in making of this movie.  That’s good, because a dog is the main character, and he can’t talk and he doesn’t show much emotion.  This is really not a… Continue reading

31 Days of Halloween 2016 #28 Monster Squad is 80s

I’m not I agree with critics who say Monster Squad (1987) is a B-Movie, but it sure is a product of its time.  This movie is like Goonies with young kids chasing after… Continue reading

31 Days of Halloween 2016 – #29 Cloverfield (2008) can learn

Cloverfield (2008) takes what everybody did previously and twists it for the cellphone generation, throwing in some exploding rich people, social drama and nervous laughter.  Good times.  So this isn’t Godzilla.  And we… Continue reading

31 Days of Halloween #30 – Jason X is stuck in the past

I’ve read a lot of stupid articles saying that Jason X was original, ahead of its time, and entertaining.  I’m at odds with all those dumb points.  At best, Jason X is fan-fiction.… Continue reading

31 Days of Halloween 2016 – #31 Young Frankenstein

Young Frankenstein (1974) is the kind of movie crafted with joy and energy.  You can see Gene Wilder, Teri Garr, Marty Feldman and cast really having fun with this one.  This is a light comedy,… Continue reading
