Incarnate (2016) gives an interesting twist on Exorcism that had me thinking of the Insidious franchise much of the time. And for some reason, I convinced myself that the boys were the same actors from Insidious and Sinister, which isn’t true at all; I think it’s because of the likeness among them. Aaron Eckhart plays…

Pumpkins (2018) was a refreshing change from many of the horror movies I’ve seen recently. It has an 80s feel that I wasn’t sure was intentional, but totally worked, reminding me of Pumpkinhead (1988). The cheese level is extraordinary, another thing I wasn’t sure was intentional. The effects were great for a low budget film,…

House at the End of the Street (2012) stars Jennifer Lawerence and Max Thieriot, and I always assumed it was just a typical teen horror from the bits that I’ve seen. But until I sat down and watched the entirety, I discovered it’s not typical at all. The truth, though, it’s not horror at all,…

The Final (2010) is about a group of misfit teenagers who seek revenge on their abusers. We all know teenagers can be horrible creatures, turning into some nasty adults, but not all of them. Sometimes when I see a film like this, I get flashbacks to good ole high school days, and I’m thankful that…

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…
