Many strange horror movies came out of the 80s, and House (1986) is a great example. It starts with a grocery delivery person coming to the house and hears a strange sound from upstairs as he’s calling for the owner. So, of course, he goes upstairs to investigate, finding the homeowner hanging from the ceiling…

Saint Maud (2019) isn’t what I expected from the trailer, but then again, it seems that trailers show the best parts these days. That doesn’t mean I didn’t enjoy the film, because I did. It is super weird and creepy and beautiful. Maud, aka Katie, is a home health care nurse with a troubled past…

When I started watching Prey (2019), I had no idea what it was, and then as I continued, I realized that I’d seen bits and pieces of it before just didn’t know what it was. It’s about Toby, who goes to a remote island to reconnect with the world after his father’s tragic death. Madeleine…

The Influence (2019) has a Gothic horror style that drew me in from the minute the family stepped foot on set. The house is super creepy and unforgettable with classic haunted house decor. The only actress I recognized is Claudia Placer, who played Irene in Verónica (2017) and is Sara in this one. She is…

Don’t worry dear, it gets worse. Dr. Mercer Boley Gargoyles (1972) is a made for TV movie with a classic 1970s musical score. I expected this film to be more low budget than it was since it was made for TV, but I was mistaken. I was impressed with how quickly it moved along with…

When Tone-Deaf (2019) first started, I wasn’t sure that I was actually watching the correct film. It was Olive’s boring life, breaking up with her boyfriend and losing her job. Then they introduced Harvey with his bizarre monologue, and I just shook my head. At that point, I still wasn’t sure if I was watching…

The House of the Devil Banner

I almost turned off The House of the Devil (2009) as the first thirty-ish minutes were boring. But the minute Samantha and Megan enter the house where Samantha is to babysit, everything changes. There are several things in this film that didn’t make sense, but I don’t want to focus on those things because I…

Edgar Allan Poe's: Buried Alive
January 21, 2021

Freedom has its limits. Gary Julian As Edgar Allan Poe’s Buried Alive (1989) started playing, I couldn’t shake the feeling that it was an American International Pictures film, but that’s not possible since they ceased operations in 1980. Oddly, the musical score sounds like something from them too, not quite Les Baxter, more like Peter…
