Performance Art

It’s become a distant memory by now, something that’s nearing twenty years old but which still sticks with me.  I have never been the most confident of ‘performers’ when it comes to doing readings. I have said this in the past. I read very quickly and I’ll fumble around with words and the WORST is… Continue reading Performance Art

Terror Unimaginable

Along with reviewing found footage and all the other fun stuff I do, I also write books. If you're in the mood for a late year chill, or an early winter thrill, look no further friend. I have just what the demon ordered... https://spookychris.com/haunted-bookstore/

DEAD RESIDENCE – found footage review

Being in the process of looking for a new home, I can tell you earnestly that it’s no fun. Maybe it COULD be, but brother, it’s no fun. It’s stressful. What you see is that houses reflect their owners in many ways, and like people, some places are just broken.  DEAD RESIDENCE is a found… Continue reading DEAD RESIDENCE – found footage review

Some Good. Some Bad. Some Ugly. So What?

It’s always an easy go-to for film fans to declare THIS year or THAT year is the greatest ever for a genre or for film in general. Or even better, to declare that THIS IS THE WORST ERA EVER for movies or a genre.  It’s low hanging fruit.  Sure, you can rattle off reasons for… Continue reading Some Good. Some Bad. Some Ugly. So What?

A Festival of Film

It feels strange to say this but I have been a part of putting  seven film festivals together (eight if you count my involvement for the Flint Film Festival in 2005). Heck, I met my wife through a film festival. It started with the horror group I was a part of and our showing short… Continue reading A Festival of Film

SHEDIM – found footage review

If you want to get to my sweet spot for found footage, you want to aim right for the fauxumentaries that are out there. I LOVE when a film can nail that, like POUGHKEEPSIE TAPES does. The idea of people making a doc about something crazy is great. (Not including BLAIR WITCH here because it… Continue reading SHEDIM – found footage review

DAY OF DISAPPEARANCE – found footage review

Any time I am given something a little different in a found footage film I get a little excited. So often we get the same pretty young people doing something they shouldn't and suffering the consequences. Of late they are influencers trying to make a name for themselves by walk to deep into the dark.… Continue reading DAY OF DISAPPEARANCE – found footage review

TERROR TRAIN – 2022 – review

TERROR TRAIN has always been one of those third tier slashers that never could get a break. Were it not for a starring turn by Jamie Lee Curtis, it’d have been all but forgotten but for the diehard slasher fans and the horror geeks that look for the most obscure of titles to get excited… Continue reading TERROR TRAIN – 2022 – review

THE THING : The Musical AKA Escape from the Shining Alien Thing From Beyond the Stars (fan edited film) – review

OK, let me get this out of the way first.  I am not a fan of fan edits.  I mean, cool on folks that do them and that enjoy them. It’s basically like a remix, something that was big back in the day and still is around to some degree. What bothers me about it… Continue reading THE THING : The Musical AKA Escape from the Shining Alien Thing From Beyond the Stars (fan edited film) – review

Podcasting, As One Does

So, I mean, you know I have a podcast, right? Right? I mean, it hits the main feed so I think you do but I figured it was worth mentioning, just in case. I have been podcasting in general for almost ten years now but solo since 2020, the height of the pandemic. I started… Continue reading Podcasting, As One Does

HELLRAISER (2022)- review

I saw the original HELLRAISER when I was a teenager and just discovering Clive Barker. I remember the newspaper ads, and the trailer and had no idea what to expect. In 1987 horror was still in the grips of the slasher craze and Freddy, Jason, and Michael still ruled the theaters, they and their ilk.… Continue reading HELLRAISER (2022)- review
