  • The Privilege (2022) #Horror #Review

    The Privilege (2022) is a German horror film about wealthy teens. The intense opening kept me on the edge of my seat, and then it skipped forward several years with Finn in some sort of therapy.  There’s a lot of strangeness happening that kept me interested. The supernatural aspects were creepy, and I thoroughly enjoyed […]

  • Betaken by Drema Ferrell #Thriller #Review

    Betaken is a fantastic look into a place that I’ve heard and seen stories about for years, giving a view that hooked me from the first page. It’s about dark events that happened in the late 1970s to early 1980s in the Appalachians. From the first chapter, I was whisked away into this strange world […]

  • Aftermath (2021) #HauntedHouse #Thriller

    Based on the title, you’d think that Aftermath (2021) was a post-apocalyptic film, but it’s not. It follows Natalie and Kevin, who are having marital problems because she cheated. So in hopes of rekindling their marriage, they buy a house where brutal murders were committed. (This sounds like a great thing to do.) Kevin cleaned […]

  • The Hidden Hand (1942) #1FromTheVaults #GothicHorror

    The Hidden Hand

    The Hidden Hand (1942) is one of those gems that make me glad for TCM. It’s a short film at sixty-three minutes, but each of those minutes is filled with delight. I think subconsciously it inspired me to write Hydrangeas on the Lanai as they share many of the same unpredictable elements that I love. […]

  • The Redwood Massacre (2014) #HorrorMovie Review


    The Redwood Massacre (2014) made me nervous when I started watching it, as so many horror films do in this millennia, and being on Amazon Prime; it was a total crapshoot. As the movie progressed, I knew I was in store for a bloodbath, and in a good way. There’s so much blood, almost to […]

  • The Dungeonmaster (1984) #Horror #Fantasy #Lost80s


    I don’t know how many times I’ve seen The Dungeonmaster (1984), but each time I see it, I am happy that I came across it again. In my most recent viewing, I couldn’t help but giggle about the prophetic glimpse into the future with X-CaliBR8, Paul’s computerized personal assistant, complete with a smartwatch and Google […]

  • Freaks (2018) #Dark #SciFi #Thriller


    Freaks (2018) is an unexpected thriller that I’ve had lingering on my watch list for a while. I’m not sure it’s technically horror. It’s more like a strange post-apocalyptic film with a large amount of bizarro mixed in. Maybe, even like A Quiet Place (2018). Well, that was the beginning. Then the further I went […]

  • Clive Barker’s The Plague (2006) #HorrorMovie Review


    Clive Barker’s The Plague (2006) is not based on Clive Barker’s writing, but he produced it, so he got to put his name on it. And truth be told, I probably wouldn’t have put it on the watch list had it been for his name, and that would’ve been my loss. This is an unexpected […]
