I cannot tell you how many years it’s been since I’ve seen The Invisible Man (1932), and I’d forgotten how wonderful this adaptation is. The effects are ingenious. When he takes the bandages from his head, it’s breathtaking. If they were to do it today, it’d be all CGI and gross. I love Una O’Connor,…

Sex, drugs, punk rock, hanging out in the woods, sounds great, but will The Ranger (2018) live up to my expectations? The story follows a group of teenagers, who are the ultimate punk rock posers that I’ve ever seen. Chelsea is part of them, but not really. It’s obvious from the way that she reacts…

The Curse of La Llorona was in my top nine 2019 horror movies to see (click here for that post). Something that I had suspected but couldn’t find evidence of at the time of the aforementioned post was the Conjuring Universe connection. The trailer had Father Perez from Annabelle, who is also the same actor…

Elizabeth Harvest (2018) is another of those movies that never hit my radar in 2018, and was recommended to me to watch by a follower. As the film began, I had the distinct feeling that I was viewing an adaptation of my short story Before He Returns, like the creators used the same writing prompt…

The Beast Within (1982) is one of those movies that never hit my radar until recently when MGMHD showed it, then it sat waiting to be watched in my DVR for at least a month. To say I’m surprised I’d never seen or heard of it before is very strange, as it is a perfect…

In the 1960s and 1970s, an assortment of Exploitation films hit the screen, and throughout the years, I have enjoyed a variety of them, including modern ones like Devil’s Rejects. The most recent, for me, is Trespassers (2019) where Orson Oblowitz takes us on a journey pulling in elements from Sexploitation and Splatter. The opening…

Soul to Keep (2015) was recommended to me. I wasn’t sure what to expect, but I figured since it’s on Netflix, I’d be only losing the time. The Title Sequence sketches are amazing, so I kept watching. It starts as a typical teen horror movie with a group of kids going to a remote location….

I have taken the challenge of finding the strangest horror movies made and Carnival of Souls (1962) fits that list perfectly. Somehow Mary Henry has survived a water-born car accident, while her friends died, and she has no memory of how. For whatever reason she goes to Utah to take a job as a church…
