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…

Psycho IV: The Beginning
January 14, 2021

A boy’s best friend is his mother. Norman Bates Psycho IV: The Beginning (1990) is made for television movie (Showtime) that attempts to give the history of Norman and doesn’t do the worst job. Having read Robert Bloch’s books in the Psycho series, I was surprised by the elements that were close. With the different…

The Eye
December 28, 2020

So this is weird, somehow I recorded The Eye (2008) remake and The Eye 2 (2004). I decided rather than talking about them separately that I’d do a strange mash-up of sorts and put them together in one post. Jessica Alba stars in The Eye remake, and it bugs me how much product placement there…

The Funhouse
December 17, 2020

The Funhouse (1981) is a movie that I’d never heard of until recently, and I thought I’d seen most of the 80s horror. It is like many slasher films of the time with a lot of suspense building. In fact, this one takes quite a long time to get going, like many made in recent…

Don’t Listen (2020), originally titled Voces, is the “it” horror movie that is all the rage on Netflix right now. It revolves around a family that buys, remodels, then sells houses in Spain. Young Eric doesn’t like the house, and they call in a therapist to try to figure out why he isn’t sleeping. Eric…

The Beast With 1,000,000 Eyes
November 5, 2020

Sci-Fi Horror is always a great combination for me, and when Roger Corman directs it for American International Pictures, I’m pleased as punch. The Beast With 1,000,000 Eyes (1955) is one of those films that by the end of it I was wondering what the fuck I just watched. It has Dick Sargent (the second…

I’m not sure what I expected when turned on Books of Blood (2020), maybe something miraculous that included The Madonna for a change, but that’s not what I got. When I hear Books of Blood, I desire to be frightened at least or wince once or twice. Again, that’s not what I got. At least…

X: The Man with the X-ray Eyes
September 3, 2020

I like men who look urgent. Woman At Party X: The Man with the X-ray Eyes (1963) is a movie I’ve wanted to see again for the longest time. Roger Corman Directed and Produced this American International Pictures masterpiece with Les Baxter, adding his musical genius to the score. While the horror/terror level of this…
