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…

With the recent reboot of the Critters franchise, I figured I should check out Critters (1986) again, to refresh my memory of what it’s all about. The story is about aliens that escape from an asteroid prison to Earth where they wreak havoc on rural town. It’s like a mix of Gremlins (1984) and The…

Even with the incredibly boring beginning, Seven in Heaven (2018) turned into the suspenseful supernatural film or as I’m calling Horror-lite. This film definitely wasn’t full-strength horror, like it’s a YA horror novel; maybe, it was adapted from a book, I don’t know and don’t care enough to find out. The strange thing, I kept…

The 1980s produced so much cheese that it’s hard not to get constipated. At least I, Madman (1989) didn’t cause any backups even with the cheese meter hitting pretty high. The thrills and chills were strong, especially when they played with camera angles and used tricks with shadows. I, Madman has an uncanny resemblance to…

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…

As of today, there are only 86 days until Halloween, so I figured I’d revisit my 2019 Horror Movie Watch List. I’ve seen 15 that were both on the original list, and others that got added along the way. I’m finding myself liking the Indie films so much more than the big budget producers, and…

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…

I have the knack of finding some of the strangest “horror” movies ever made and Dead of Night (1945) fits quite nicely into the slot. It’s a British anthology film with an Alfred Hitchcock/Twilight Zone feel. Not all the stories in this film are frightening, well, actually, none of them are, but that’s not to…
