I did not know about Housewife (2017) until it showed up on Shudder, so I figured ‘why not?’. Can Evrenol directed and co-wrote it. They filmed the movie in Istanbul, Turkey; Can directed Baskin (2015), which I haven’t reviewed but liked (maybe, I’ll have to watch it again and do a write-up.) The special effects…

I’m not sure why they named this Ghoulies (1985), it seems Satanic Pets or something like that would be more fitting. The Ghoulies themselves don’t really play much in the film besides filler. Had they done something more exciting like Gremlins, maybe, this would’ve been better. And just think, there’s a total of four in…

I’ll make you suffer what I’ve suffered. Mary Madhouse (1981) is one of those movies that never hit my radar until recently. At least with today’s technology, it’s easier to get caught up on those hidden gems from the past. The open of this film is just as creepy as the ending. Surrounded by shadows,…

The Shed
October 27, 2020

The Shed (2019) starts out very strong with a man being stalked in the woods by a Vampire (and not a pretty, sparkly one either, thank the celluloid gods), then after the introduction, I found myself in Stan’s depressing reality. I wasn’t sure how long the teenage drama and unhappy life of Stan was going…

I’m not sure what I expected when turned on Books of Blood (2020), maybe something miraculous that included The Madonna for a change, but that’s not what I got. When I hear Books of Blood, I desire to be frightened at least or wince once or twice. Again, that’s not what I got. At least…

House of the Witch
October 25, 2020

House of the Witch (2017) surprised me for getting to it rather quickly since many horror films from the last decade took their sweet time and when it came to the climax I was already spent. It felt like it wished it was made in the 80s with a few slices of cheese thrown around….

From the bizarre opening to the end, I couldn’t help think that Deranged (1974) is a strange copy of Pyscho (1960), then later I saw bits of Texas Chainsaw Massacre (1974) thrown in though they were released in the same year. The story revolves around Ezra Cobb, who lives/d with his mother and takes care…

The Binding
October 19, 2020

The Binding (2020) (Il Legame in Italian) is a masterful cinematic delight. It begins with a brutal ritual followed by Italian text giving a brief history of binding; thank the celluloid gods there were English subtitles. That out of the way, they jump to the present with a couple and a child going to a…
