The Super (2018) is another of those movies that were released in other parts of the world a year before the USA, and since that’s where I live, I will use that year. When I first started watching, I was concerned with the possible rip-off of The Shining because of the focus on the boiler….

Dang, with only the opening credits and score, I’m hooked, and I want to see Night of Demons (1988). Is it because of the cheesy synthesizer sounds? Maybe. Could it be the strange animations? Another possibility. Whatever piqued my interest so quickly, movie makers of today need to figure out, because I’m tired of the…

I came across Aterrados (2018) – Terrified for those us who don’t speak Spanish – by accident while looking for something to watch. I hadn’t heard of it or anything about this Argentinian film. The short description of it didn’t give me much, but the movie poster intrigued me, so I figured, What the hell?…

I loved it from the first sequence, how is it possible not…

Vincent Price is my favorite actor, and to honor his birthday, I’ve decided to tell you about a few of his movies that I find exceptional. The simplicity of The Bat (1959) makes it strong. Even the one effect is stupendous; really, I’m not making fun of it. I wonder if they tried to get a…

The second Clive Barker story I read was Cabal (I still have the 1st Edition Hardcover I bought when I was in college), and to my delight in 1990 Nightbreed was released on the big screen. It is the first movie that I’m conscious of seeing that was adapted from a book; with Hellraiser, I…

Oh man, I can’t tell you how many times I’ve seen Motel Hell (1980); it has to be at least ten. I remember seeing it as a kid, and my mom saying ‘Oh, gross’ when someone wore a pig head. Many years had passed since the first viewing that I figured what the movie was;…
