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…

The Town That Dreaded Sundown
November 26, 2020

The incredible story you are about to see is true, where it happened and how it happened; only the names have been changed. The Narrator The Town That Dreaded Sundown (1976) is an early slasher example, and one of the better ones that go on the top shelf with The Texas Chainsaw Massacre (1974) and…

I’ll make you suffer what I’ve suffered. Mary Madhouse (1981) is one of those movies that never hit my radar until recently. At least with today’s technology, it’s easier to get caught up on those hidden gems from the past. The open of this film is just as creepy as the ending. Surrounded by shadows,…

House of the Witch
October 25, 2020

House of the Witch (2017) surprised me for getting to it rather quickly since many horror films from the last decade took their sweet time and when it came to the climax I was already spent. It felt like it wished it was made in the 80s with a few slices of cheese thrown around….

From the bizarre opening to the end, I couldn’t help think that Deranged (1974) is a strange copy of Pyscho (1960), then later I saw bits of Texas Chainsaw Massacre (1974) thrown in though they were released in the same year. The story revolves around Ezra Cobb, who lives/d with his mother and takes care…

Dark Encounter (2019) made my watchlist last year, but since it wasn’t available on Prime until recently, I didn’t watch it (yes, I’m thrifty). The biggest reason it made my list was because Grant Masters is in it. I enjoy his style, and this role made me appreciate him more. You might remember him from…

Sugar Hill
April 30, 2020

For the last day of 30 Days of Terror, I didn’t have to think too long to know which film I wanted to tell you about. Sugar Hill (1974) is one of those amazing B-Movies produced by American International Pictures; it also falls into the Blaxploitation category, which is a term that annoys me, but…
