The Presence (2010) is not what I expected, but it’s good, nonetheless. It stars Shane West as Ghost, and it’s not exactly revealed who he was. For whatever reason, he is trapped in a cabin on an island and cannot leave. When the Woman arrives, he begins to watch her, and it’s on the creepy…

Sixteen years after Howling VII (1995) was released comes The Howling: Reborn (2011); I think they waited that long because of the dreadfulness of the previous film. This one has some good tongue-in-cheek times, like when one of the characters makes fun of all the other films in the franchise because they were all “old”…

I haven’t seen a good Werewolf movie in a long time, and I’m happy to announce that Howl (2015) is fantastic. It starts as we follow Joe Griffin through his boring life of being a security guard on a train, who then finds out that his bosses passed him over for a promotion. As they…

Before I watched House on Willow Street (2016), I read the blurb that, in a nutshell, says criminals take a wealthy man’s daughter hostage to learn later she’s possessed. Those simple words intrigued me, so I had to see it because there’s something about possession movies that always give me the chills. This movie starts…

Beyond the Gates
June 7, 2021

The idea of Beyond the Gates (2016), a Jumanji style horror movie, on the surface appears great, but as the movie crept along, I was disappointed. Not everything was bland, though. Like the opening credits music with its 80s flair or the few gore effects. Both of those were good. Oh, and the acting was…

I would hope that Phantasm V: Ravager (2016) is the last in the franchise since Agnus died before the film was released; he was 90. Eighteen years passed since IV was released, and it’s very telling in the actors. I know, I know we all get old, but doing a Phantasm-athon and seeing them all…

The Crucifixion
May 24, 2021

I’m not sure what I was expecting when I came across The Crucifixion (2017). I had a baseline understanding of the premise based on the short blurb; a woman investigates a death that happened during an exorcism in Bucharest. The scenes with the possessions and exorcism were exciting, too bad they scattered those bits throughout…

Escape Room
May 17, 2021

Escape Room (2017) is the first of two movies with the same name released in September 2017; the other had Evan Williams, while the one I saw had Skeet Ulrich. From what I got from watching the trailers for both, they are essentially the same movie. When I first started watching the film, I was…
