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

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…

You don’t have the eyes of the hunter. You have the eyes of the dead. Eddie Holt Wolfen (1981) was adapted from the book of the same name by Whitley Strieber. You could say that it’s a werewolf film, but that’s not entirely true as is shown. It stars Albert Finney as former NYPD Detective…

Brahms: The Boy II (2020) being a sequel, I wasn’t sure what to expect, including whether it would be good or not. To my surprise and relief, it wasn’t just a regurgitation of The Boy (2016). It begins with a family who goes to a house in the country after a traumatic home invasion that…

Doctor X
December 3, 2020

Doctor X (1932) is a pre-Code thrill ride that utilized two-color Technicolor, which if you’ve never seen anything in this format, it takes a second to enjoy it. From the first glimpse, it’s like a horrible attempt of colorization, then as your eyes adjust it’s like glowing sepia and cyan and is quite beautiful the…
