An American Werewolf in Paris (1997) doesn’t have any ties to An American Werewolf in London; thank the celluloid gods because it might have been a lot worse for it. I didn’t have any expectations that they would be linked. The opening scene is enticing, then fades to a bro comedy. I could’ve done without…

I had higher hopes for Howling VII: New Moon Rising (1995) based on the previous installments; too bad it didn’t even reach Marsupials bar. To start, the name of the film in the opening credits was Howling VII: Mystery Woman, but when I did a Google searched, it only returned Howling VII or Howling: New…

Howling VI: The Freaks (1991) reminds me of Vampire Circus (1972), which isn’t a bad thing; I liked that movie. Like the previous installment, this was a direct-to-video release, which is strange to me since it feels like something would’ve been in the theaters. I hadn’t seen this one until recently and will be watching…

Full, crescent, quarter…each is a bad moon for a werewolf. First off, I want to tell you that I didn’t like Bad Moon (1996) that much. It had so much potential to be good, but failed. There are good parts, like the beginning with the werewolf attack, even though the beast was very stiff. My…

At the ending of Phantasm III, Tim is pulled through a window while Reggie is detained by several spheres, which is not touched on in this chapter. However, Mike experiences flashbacks while driving a hearse, showing things that happened in the previous three movies. Angus…

Phantasm III: Lord of the Dead (1994) jumps ahead two years from the previous installment with some changes to the cast. A. Michael Baldwin returns as Mike Pearson, who’s been in a coma in those two years. Bill Thornbury also returns in his role as Jody; he was turned into a chrome ball and can…

Psycho IV: The Beginning
January 14, 2021

A boy’s best friend is his mother. Norman Bates Psycho IV: The Beginning (1990) is made for television movie (Showtime) that attempts to give the history of Norman and doesn’t do the worst job. Having read Robert Bloch’s books in the Psycho series, I was surprised by the elements that were close. With the different…

It’s been a long time since I’ve seen Stigmata (1999), so when I saw that it was going to be on TV, I had to put it in the DVR. I always found this film strange and disturbing. I like how they used the real stigmata location and give an explanation of the placement. This…
