Children Shouldn’t Play With Dead Things – review and appreciation

   I was still a kid when I discovered Children on one of our regional over the air channels that ran a double feature block of horror movies on Saturdays. The intro to the Thriller Double Feature mixed Led Zeppelin’s Whole Lotta Love (the instrumental weirdness in the middle of it) with images from several… Continue reading Children Shouldn’t Play With Dead Things – review and appreciation

The Deep House – review

There’s something about a well done haunted house film that just really taps into what makes horror so special and captivating for me. Take a normal day, normal people, and then insert them into a place that should be safe – a home. The home can be inhabited or abandoned, but either way it feels… Continue reading The Deep House – review

RISE OF THE SCARECROWS : Hell on Earth – Review

If there’s one thing that I can say I truly appreciate about experience and age it’s that the meanness of youth often falls away. Sure, sure, we’re still mean as old folks but with luck we gain the wisdom that other people shouldn’t have to take big old swigs of that meanness just because we… Continue reading RISE OF THE SCARECROWS : Hell on Earth – Review

HALLOWEEN KILLS – review

HALLOWEEN KILLS – review             Now that this is finally out, and the fans are seething, and the pundits are posting their bile can we just take a moment to appreciate what Rob Zombie was able to do? He took a dead franchise and gave it life. It wasn’t the life we were expecting, and… Continue reading HALLOWEEN KILLS – review

Godzilla Vs Kong – review

   I grew up with Godzilla and his movies. I remember watching Godzilla movies on a Detroit station that ran sci-fi and horror double features on Saturdays. I grew up watching him battle King Ghidorah, Mothra, Rodan, Gigan, and the rest. From a young age Godzilla was part of my life, so much so that… Continue reading Godzilla Vs Kong – review

THE ARRIVAL – movie review

            Do you ever remember things differently than maybe they happened? I mean, we all do it, right? With friendships. With love. With our heroic adventures where we’re the star. We all do it, exaggerating or blurring reality or not quite seeing a thing for how it was. I have that happen to me all… Continue reading THE ARRIVAL – movie review

BLAIR WITCH – movie review

               I don’t think it’s any secret that I am a slappy for the BLAIR WITCH and all of its associated creations. I am a slappy, like I said. I remember seeing the BLAIR WITCH PROJECT a week before it came out in wide release and it blew me away. I was able to see… Continue reading BLAIR WITCH – movie review

Friday the 13th Series/Scream Factory Boxed Set Review

            To say I was excited to see that FRIDAY THE 13th was getting a proper boxed set is a huge understatement. I have always loved the series and while there have been lots and lots and lots of releases there was never a comprehensive one with ALL of the movies together and with as… Continue reading Friday the 13th Series/Scream Factory Boxed Set Review

Daniel Isn’t Real – review

            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
