With 2020 the way it was, I’m not surprised that I never heard of Gates of Darkness (2020), and had it not been for Tubi, I might have missed it completely. The cast is an interesting mix of people I’ve never seen before and ones that I’ve seen several times before. And based on one…

I really liked the beginning of Butchers (2020), it had good frights, then it went to a videotape excursion of some teenagers. I thought, dang it, it’s a found footage film. Turns out it wasn’t and I’m glad I gave it a chance. It’s a nice combination of Wrong Turn and Texas Chainsaw with blood…

Survival films can be predictable and blasé but VFW (2020) is not one of those films; though the way it was set up at the beginning, I knew there was going to be a confrontation at the VFW (hence the name). The cast is a great mix of talent, including Fred Parras and George Wendt….

Starfish
February 15, 2021

Starfish (2018) is a science fiction horror film that I hadn’t heard anything about before finding it onDemand. It revolves around Aubrey, a young woman who has returned to the town she once lived with her best friend for her funeral. In the beginning, I wasn’t sure if I cared, then as it progressed I…

SciFi Horror is always fun and Leviathan (1989) adds to the catalog, taking bits and pieces of other films like The Thing (1982) and Alien (1979). I’m not saying it’s bad, many film creators do it and it’s not so obvious, though. The visuals are good for the most part, the only thing that I…

Verotika (2019) is based on Glenn Danzig’s comics, which I’ve never read, but seeing this, I think I’m missing something special. Danzig did the music for this too, giving it an extra layer of macabre that wouldn’t be present had he used other artists. A warning, though, this anthology film is not for everyone. As…

The One Enlightened (Chronicles of the Diasodz Book 2) continues where The One Discovered left off with a little glimpse of the ending (thank the Goddess because it’s been a while since I read it). The story follows Sofia who is learning about being a Diasodz and her power. This chapter in the Diasodz series…

Santa's Slay
December 24, 2020

I don’t want to screw the bird, I want to eat it. Darren Mason Santa’s Slay (2005) is the truth about Santa Claus. Not really, but it’s one of the best Christmas horror movies I’ve seen in many years. Most of the scenes are cleverly filled with puns, including the character names. The opening takes…
