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…

I love that Netflix didn’t wait a long time to drop Fear Street Part 2 1978 (2021), unlike how past epic series took close to a decade to get everything out. It was weird seeing scenes from the previous episode at the beginning, but I’ll get over it. Part 2 doesn’t start with killing or…

Howling V: The Rebirth (1989), like the previous chapters in the franchise, has nothing to do with Howling IV: The Original Nightmare (1988) and at least isn’t marsupials. The opening scene hooked me as it did the first time I saw this film with harrowing events happening in Budapest in 1849. When they flash to…

The Conjuring 3 Movie Poster
June 28, 2021

After finishing my second viewing of The Conjuring: The Devil Made Me Do It (2021), I still wonder why Iona, a.k.a The Occultist, was conjuring a demon, and I find it strange that I would’ve missed that bit of important information twice, though, anything is possible. Unlike previous Conjuring films, they don’t have a flash…

Army of the Dead banner
June 14, 2021

Army of the Dead (2021) was on my 2020 watch list (in the Probably Won’t Watch section), but we all know what happened to 2020, so it wasn’t released to Netflix until recently, which they could’ve done in 2020. Not being a huge zombie fan, as it’s always the same thing over and over, and…

For whatever reason, it took nine years before they released Phantasm II (1988), and I think they did a good job tying Phantasm (1979) to it like a continuing story. The opening scene replays the ending of the first, then moves seven years later with Mike Pearson being released from an institution. James LeGros now…

Cadaver (2020) is one of those movies that kept me entertained throughout, wondering what would happen next. It begins with a strange scene of children going through heaps of clothing in a hotel, and then it took me outside to an apparent post-apocalyptic/dystopian world with dead littering the streets. When a carnie appearing man invites…
