Michael Myers Halloween Kills
October 18, 2021

You know how you get all excited about a movie coming out, and then you have to wait another year because of a pandemic? That’s how Halloween Kills (2021) was for me. Though I don’t understand why they shelved it for a year, it’s not like they didn’t stream it the same day. So yes,…

A Quiet Place Part 2
October 11, 2021

Sometimes movies have incredible hooks that suck me in and chew me up, leaving me terrified; other times, they don’t. Let me tell you that A Quiet Place Part II (2021) had the hook. The thing that I never understood from the first installment was the how, and this one filled in those blanks. The…

Come Play hide and seek scene
October 4, 2021

I’m finally catching up on the horror films I didn’t see from 2020. Though Come Play (2020) wasn’t on the original watch list for that deplorable year, I added it when I saw the trailer for it. This film is frightening. Just the idea of a demon lurking behind the screen of a tablet or…

Empty Man Cover
September 27, 2021

The Empty Man (2020) is based on the Boom! Studios comic series of the same name that I vaguely remember reading back in 2014. It has a slight resemblance to Slender Man too, which isn’t a bad thing (at least I wasn’t bored watching this). The film begins sometime in 1995 with four friends hiking…

September 13, 2021

Even after seeing the trailer for Malignant (2021), I wasn’t sure what I’d be seeing when I started. The opening scene is super cheesy, which I didn’t expect, but with Christian Clemenson in it, how could it not be? Then when it jumped to the present, the tone of the film changed; something it did…

A Classic Horror Story
September 6, 2021

Sometimes I worry about the horror movies Netflix says I need to watch, which was the case with A Classic Horror Story (2021). It is an Italian film with voiceovers, or if you speak Italian, you can watch it with the original audio; that has no bearing on the movie. I just thought I’d point…

The Swarm
August 30, 2021

The Swarm (2021) on Netflix is not exactly what I expected, and after letting it soak in my brain for a few days, I still feel disconnected from what I saw. It’s about a woman and her two children, who are recovering from the loss of the father/husband. She, for whatever reason, begins raising locusts….

Fear Street Preacher
July 26, 2021

Fear Street Part 3: 1666 is the conclusion of this amazing horror film series. I’m sad that it’s over, but they resolved the mysteries, so what else is there? I’ve never read any of R.L. Stein’s books, so I really don’t know. As with Part 2, they added scenes from the previous films, then jumped…
