Sex, drugs, punk rock, hanging out in the woods, sounds great, but will The Ranger (2018) live up to my expectations? The story follows a group of teenagers, who are the ultimate punk rock posers that I’ve ever seen. Chelsea is part of them, but not really. It’s obvious from the way that she reacts…

Even with the incredibly boring beginning, Seven in Heaven (2018) turned into the suspenseful supernatural film or as I’m calling Horror-lite. This film definitely wasn’t full-strength horror, like it’s a YA horror novel; maybe, it was adapted from a book, I don’t know and don’t care enough to find out. The strange thing, I kept…

The Curse of La Llorona was in my top nine 2019 horror movies to see (click here for that post). Something that I had suspected but couldn’t find evidence of at the time of the aforementioned post was the Conjuring Universe connection. The trailer had Father Perez from Annabelle, who is also the same actor…

Elizabeth Harvest (2018) is another of those movies that never hit my radar in 2018, and was recommended to me to watch by a follower. As the film began, I had the distinct feeling that I was viewing an adaptation of my short story Before He Returns, like the creators used the same writing prompt…

Sometimes I come across a horror movie that has an unexpected genuine sweetness, and Wilding (2018) is one of those films. I know it seems strange for that to occur in horror, but the scenes where Anna is learning about the world are just that. The strangeness of her being locked in the attic made…

In the 1960s and 1970s, an assortment of Exploitation films hit the screen, and throughout the years, I have enjoyed a variety of them, including modern ones like Devil’s Rejects. The most recent, for me, is Trespassers (2019) where Orson Oblowitz takes us on a journey pulling in elements from Sexploitation and Splatter. The opening…

Soul to Keep (2015) was recommended to me. I wasn’t sure what to expect, but I figured since it’s on Netflix, I’d be only losing the time. The Title Sequence sketches are amazing, so I kept watching. It starts as a typical teen horror movie with a group of kids going to a remote location….
