After not seeing The Evil Dead (1981) in a while, I’d forgotten that it was a low budget horror film, but that doesn’t matter because Sam Raimi utilized everything he had available to him to make this an extraordinary masterpiece. As I watch it for the n-th time, I get to go back in time…

Well, now that I’ve finally seen The Texas Chain Saw Massacre (1974), I figured I’d binge the others, including the remakes. There are twelve years between the original movie and The Texas Chainsaw Massacre II (1986), but the opening scroll and the narrator said thirteen. The biggest thing I’m noticing from the first/original is the…

Jack Frost (1997) is like a train wreck that I couldn’t stop watching. And while everything in my mind said to look away, I just couldn’t.

Apparently, Tiffany, Charles Lee Ray’s former/past girlfriend has been looking for the Chucky doll, and finally figures out it’s in an…

This is the end, friend. Andy Child’s Play (1988) continues to be one of my favorite horror movies of the 80s. It was exciting and creepy, and still is. This movie was so cool when it first came out, and I think it holds its own today. Of course, other film makers jumped on the…
