When Apparition (2019) began, I thought I was watching the wrong movie because the events in the first third of the movie aren’t what the description told me. I didn’t mind though because I liked what I was seeing as brutal as it was, and the craziness of the mom going nuts was freaky and…

I think this place is possessed by demonic demons. Jack As with many horror films and not just from the 1980s, Scarecrows (1988) isn’t one that can be taken too seriously. I’m not telling you not to watch it. I’m just saying that you might not get the enjoyment value of the film if you…

November 16, 2020

Gretel & Hansel (2020) is a movie that quickly moved to a pay television channel; I’m sure some would blame COVID-19 for it, but I wouldn’t be too quick to place the blame there, some movies just don’t make it. That being said, I’m not sure what happened with this one, the trailer gives a…

Blood Bath
November 12, 2020

Blood Bath (1966) – after seeing it again, I don’t get the name, but whatever – is from American International Pictures, and is a total B Movie. It’s artsy like The Cabinet of Caligari (1962) or Carnival of Souls (1962) featuring a beatnik art scene. A very young and svelte Sid Haig plays Abdul the…

Jack in the Box
November 9, 2020

The Jack in the Box (2019) was a last-minute addition to my 2019 watch list that appeared to have something to offer that was different from all the blandness that I had experienced that year. When it finally became included in Prime, I decided to watch it and see if I’d suffer more disappointment. The…

The Beast With 1,000,000 Eyes
November 5, 2020

Sci-Fi Horror is always a great combination for me, and when Roger Corman directs it for American International Pictures, I’m pleased as punch. The Beast With 1,000,000 Eyes (1955) is one of those films that by the end of it I was wondering what the fuck I just watched. It has Dick Sargent (the second…

Play or Die
November 2, 2020

I found Play or Die (2019) in the neverending list of OnDemand choices. I’d never heard of it but had an idea of what it was about, a mix of Saw and Escape Room. It’s based on the novel Puzzle by Franck Thilliez and was directed and co-written by Jacques Kluger. It begins with an…

Jaws of Satan
October 31, 2020

The Jaws of Satan (1981) is one of those exploitation horror films, and you know what that means, boys and girls, it’s gonna be cheese-filled and exciting. At barely five minutes in, the cheese is thicker than snot, and it’s followed by one astonishing scene after another. Christina Applegate is in this one, she was…
