Sleepaway Camp
September 9, 2021

I was hoping that Sleepaway Camp II: Unhappy Campers (1988) would’ve kept better secrets as the first in this strange horror franchise, but it didn’t. There’s something to be said about not knowing who is doing the kills that adds more suspense than knowing upfront. I’ll get to more of that later. It begins with…

An American Werewolf in Paris (1997) doesn’t have any ties to An American Werewolf in London; thank the celluloid gods because it might have been a lot worse for it. I didn’t have any expectations that they would be linked. The opening scene is enticing, then fades to a bro comedy. I could’ve done without…

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.

Why are they so wet? Besides that question, there are others I have for Howling III: The Marsupials (1987).

There are some great scenes, like when Donny takes Jerboa to see a…

I assumed that Behind the Walls (2018) was another run-of-the-mill haunted house film with ghosts that go bump in the night and strange happenings. Obviously, it was that, but it was more than that. This was unexpected, though a little hard to follow. Kathy Harper, who is on the run from her husband (or so…

American Gothic

And if you’re really, really good, well, you might just get a brand new dolly. American Gothic (1988) isn’t a bad film, but there’s not much to say about it. At times, I watch a movie, and when it’s done, I just don’t know what to say about it. There are so many aspects of…

Along Came the Devil (2018), aka Tell Me Your Name, isn’t much different from any possession movie made in the last twenty years; of course, it’s based on actual events. The beginning shows two girls in a closet while their father has sex with a random woman. The woman freaks out when she finds them…
