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
March 25, 2021

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…

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…

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…
