Tales from the Crypt Presents: The Ritual
July 13, 2020

I loved the HBO series, Tales From The Crypt, back in the day, and when I came across Tales from the Crypt Presents: The Ritual (2001), I couldn’t resist the urge to emerge into the cheese. The movie has an interesting beginning where a doctor melts, there’s a girl who has a deal with him…

Dawn of the Dead
July 6, 2020

I’m trying to understand why zombies have flooded the horror genre, so I figured I’d watch Dawn of the Dead (2004). It’s the remake of the movie of the same name from 1978, the second in George A. Romeo’s zombie franchise. Even after seeing this, I’m still not sure about them. The fact that this…

Dead Birds
June 25, 2020

There are worse things than dying. Todd Dead Birds (2005) has been on my radar for a while, and I finally got the chance to watch it. It’s considered a “Western Horror,” though it’s not western at all, it’s Civil War, not the Wild, Wild West. I recognize a few actors, (Sam) Patrick Fugit from…

Alien abduction revenge seems like a good idea. Who wouldn’t want to get revenge on the jerks that probed you? But as Altered (2006) shows us, it’s not the best thing to do. Somehow Wyatt was altered when he was on the spaceship, while one died and the others were returned to earth with only…

Trick r Treat banner
June 15, 2020

I’m not a huge fan of anthology films, just because the stories the producers put together don’t make sense. Trick ‘r Treat (2007) fixed that problem for me. While separate stories are being told, they are all contained to one town on Halloween and are intertwined nicely to have a cohesive film. The cast in…

Dark Floors
June 8, 2020

Dark Floors (2008) has been on my watch list for a while, and now that I’ve finally seen it, I’m left feeling empty or at least not full. I saw the trailer for it, and that’s how it came to be on my watch list. I thought it was going to be terrifying, but they…

The Strangers
June 1, 2020

Inspired by true events, well a mix of them, The Strangers (2008) tells the fun tale of masked intruders who antagonize a couple spending time in a family cottage in the woods. While it’s not extraordinary, I like it, and every time I see it, I get the chills. I like the cast, Liv Tyler…

The Echo
May 25, 2020

Ghost stories are always fun, though sometimes the creators of these films go too far with how they imagine things. The Echo (2009) takes us on the journey with Bobby Reynolds, who’s been released from prison and he returns to his mother’s apartment to live. The opening credits have strange screaming and ranting, and I…
