The Shed
October 27, 2020

The Shed (2019) starts out very strong with a man being stalked in the woods by a Vampire (and not a pretty, sparkly one either, thank the celluloid gods), then after the introduction, I found myself in Stan’s depressing reality. I wasn’t sure how long the teenage drama and unhappy life of Stan was going…

I’m not sure what I expected when turned on Books of Blood (2020), maybe something miraculous that included The Madonna for a change, but that’s not what I got. When I hear Books of Blood, I desire to be frightened at least or wince once or twice. Again, that’s not what I got. At least…

House of the Witch
October 25, 2020

House of the Witch (2017) surprised me for getting to it rather quickly since many horror films from the last decade took their sweet time and when it came to the climax I was already spent. It felt like it wished it was made in the 80s with a few slices of cheese thrown around….

October 22, 2020

From the bizarre opening to the end, I couldn’t help think that Deranged (1974) is a strange copy of Pyscho (1960), then later I saw bits of Texas Chainsaw Massacre (1974) thrown in though they were released in the same year. The story revolves around Ezra Cobb, who lives/d with his mother and takes care…

The Binding
October 19, 2020

The Binding (2020) (Il Legame in Italian) is a masterful cinematic delight. It begins with a brutal ritual followed by Italian text giving a brief history of binding; thank the celluloid gods there were English subtitles. That out of the way, they jump to the present with a couple and a child going to a…

Spirits of the Dead
October 15, 2020

Spirits of the Dead (1968) is a strange anthology film containing three Poe stories. While American International Pictures didn’t produce this film, they distributed the English version; I watched the French/Italian version. It’s strange that not all the voices can be heard as they are erased from the soundtrack. I wonder if it’s the same…

They're Inside
October 12, 2020

I knew They’re Inside (2019) was a copy of sorts of The Strangers (2008) before I watched it, which probably should’ve deterred me, but I hoped for the best. I thought “found footage” films were over in 2015, it turns out I was wrong. And true to many films like this, it has “real” acting…
