In which I wax poetic about the Halloween movies and horror franchises.
Horror has become a great place to examine and discuss a variety of topics such as mental health. Sure, you get a lot of dramas that talk about people’s declining mental health or issues with mental health, but you never quite get the same sort of desperate and scary look as you do with… Continue reading Daniel Isn’t Real – review
Can I just say right now that watching a movie this gnarly and sleazy in 4K is SO WEIRD! I am not really reviewing this as a sort of home release thing, but the film has never looked better. It’s still grimy, there’s tons of film grain, but it’s bright, it’s clear, and man… Continue reading MANIAC – review
To read the film geek room you’d think that ‘superhero movies’ are some great burden that has been holding film back. There are just so many of them. It’s all anyone makes. It’s all anyone talks about. Oh Lord Above, what about the OTHER movies? Whenever I read these screeds, I can’t decide whether… Continue reading Project Power – review
When we movie fans wax poetic about movies many of us long for the halcyon days of yore when films felt dangerous and directors were loose cannons. We talk about how great those movies were and how things have never been the same since. Well, ya know, maybe it’s not always such a bad… Continue reading The Little Girl Who Lives Down the Lane – review

I end up watching a LOT of movies these days and, as such, I watch a lot of mediocre to regrettable films. Films that seem to almost be made on accident by people… Continue reading The Clovehitch Killer – review
Mary is a strange sort of film. It’s a lower tier horror effort in every sense but with a respectable cast. How did this happen? I mean, it HAPPENS, but it’s rare when it does and…why? It’s hard to believe that Gary Oldman was that desperate for work and Emily Mortimer and Jennifer Esposito… Continue reading Mary – review
In watching the 4K disc for Sam Raimi’s The Quick and the Dead I am reminded of when it came out and how excited I was. I have been a fan of Mr. Raimi’s films since I was a teenager and discovered the world of The Evil Dead with friends. His frenetic style and over… Continue reading The Quick and the Dead – review
WE SUMMON THE DARKNESS is a crafty little badger. As part of the modern ‘Satanic Panic’ and ‘1980’s’ resurgence we’ve seen in horror cinema it plays a fun little game with our expectations and biases going in and mostly manages to keep its ball of string together. The story for WE SUMMON THE DARKNESS follows… Continue reading We Summon The Darkness – review
In which I talk about makin' movies.
