The Garden of Fragile things
October 12, 2021

On Amazon, The Garden of Fragile Things is categorized as Occult Horror and Occult Fiction, but I’m not sure that’s where I’d put them because the horror was few and far between, and I just didn’t feel the occult. That aside, I enjoyed the book and found it entertaining. The memoir style is well crafted,…

Come Play hide and seek scene
October 4, 2021

I’m finally catching up on the horror films I didn’t see from 2020. Though Come Play (2020) wasn’t on the original watch list for that deplorable year, I added it when I saw the trailer for it. This film is frightening. Just the idea of a demon lurking behind the screen of a tablet or…

Empty Man Cover
September 27, 2021

The Empty Man (2020) is based on the Boom! Studios comic series of the same name that I vaguely remember reading back in 2014. It has a slight resemblance to Slender Man too, which isn’t a bad thing (at least I wasn’t bored watching this). The film begins sometime in 1995 with four friends hiking…

Prey for the Dead
September 11, 2021

The first thing I thought when I finished reading Prey for the Dead was that the male characters are jerks yet the female leads, Linda and Shana, are in love with them no matter how badly they treat them. The men are vampires, but still, it left me with an uncomfortable feeling. That aside, I…

Sleepaway Camp Angela Screaming
September 2, 2021

Sleepaway Camp (1983) is one of those films that, if you haven’t seen, you’re not missing much because it’s a lot of teenage drama. Though, I can’t really say that because this film has so much WTF happening that if you don’t see it, you will miss the bizarre elements that make it such a…

When I read this on a website about House III: The Horror Show (1989), it made me more confused than I’d already been about this film being in the franchise (I’m not citing the reference). The Horror Show was originally intended as an entry into the House series of films but was marketed as unrelated,…

August 2, 2021

The Presence (2010) is not what I expected, but it’s good, nonetheless. It stars Shane West as Ghost, and it’s not exactly revealed who he was. For whatever reason, he is trapped in a cabin on an island and cannot leave. When the Woman arrives, he begins to watch her, and it’s on the creepy…

July 8, 2021

Howling VI: The Freaks (1991) reminds me of Vampire Circus (1972), which isn’t a bad thing; I liked that movie. Like the previous installment, this was a direct-to-video release, which is strange to me since it feels like something would’ve been in the theaters. I hadn’t seen this one until recently and will be watching…
