Sam Raimi’s Weird Horror-Comedy: Drag Me to Hell (2009)

There's this cliché in literature and film where a character says something along the lines of "I didn't know if I should laugh or cry." It's pretty trite, sloppy writing, and I roll my eyes whenever I hear it, but like all clichés, there's a spark of truth which underlies the statement. There is a … Continue reading Sam Raimi’s Weird Horror-Comedy: Drag Me to Hell (2009)

John Carpenter’s Theory of Horror: They Live (1988)

A few years ago, I visited Seattle's Museum of Pop Culture (aka MoPOP). Honestly, the main reason I checked it out was that the building looks like it was designed by/for a modern day Willie Wonka. However, to my pleasant surprise, they happened to be running a temporary exhibit on horror movies. They had a LOT of … Continue reading John Carpenter’s Theory of Horror: They Live (1988)

Holiday Classic Review! Black Christmas (1974)

Happy Holidays! It's that time of year again, and I figured I'd have to celebrate the season by settling down and watching a classic Christmas/Horror hybrid that I've never actually got around to seeing, Black Christmas from 1974. It was honestly pretty enjoyable overall, but one of the best things is that it's totally free (and legal!) … Continue reading Holiday Classic Review! Black Christmas (1974)

Welcome to Blumhouse Review Part 3 of 4: Nocturne

Welcome to part three of my "Welcome to Blumhouse" reviews! In case you're unaware, "Welcome to Blumhouse" is a collection of four unrelated films available to watch on Prime Video with an Amazon Prime subscription. I've already covered Black Box and The Lie in previous posts, and today I'll take a look at Zu Quirke's 2020 film titled Nocturne.

Blumhouse Productions is the company best known for producing films like Get Out, Paranormal Activity, and Sinister (hey, I wrote a Sinister review! Check it out HERE if you're interested) as well as … Continue reading Welcome to Blumhouse Review Part 1 of 4: Black Box

Review: His House (2020)

Netflix's His House, released for streaming on January 27, 2020, is a thoroughly conventional haunted house film with some genuinely unique new trappings, which left me confused if I took anything away from the film. The story focuses on a refugee couple who, having escaped from war-torn South Sudan, find themselves in government housing. However, it … Continue reading Review: His House (2020)

The Blair Witch Project – 21 Years Later

It's always weird to write about a film that I can so clearly remember seeing during my childhood. The Blair Witch Project came out when I was an elementary school student. It was the perfect storm of media buzz, schoolyard rumors (oh my god, you saw an R-Rated Horror Movie???), and the macho-posturing of telling … Continue reading The Blair Witch Project – 21 Years Later

1922 – The Horror of Decay

I finally got around to watching 1922 on Netflix, knowing nothing about it initially except for the fact that it was (yet another) Stephen King adaptation. When it comes to viewing adaptations of King's work, I try to maintain a healthy skepticism going into the film. While there have been many successes (Stand by Me, The Shining, Misery), there … Continue reading 1922 – The Horror of Decay
