“Fear” – Movie Review

Fear is at the very center of what the horror genre is all about.  Although to be fair, just because a film isn’t “scary” to a particular person doesn’t mean it’s a terrible movie (which is a debate for a different day).  But fear itself is at the core of what horror’s ultimate purpose is.  So many different horror movies have toyed with the idea … Continue reading “Fear” – Movie Review

“Infinity Pool”: A Visceral, Surreal, Sci-Fi Nightmare [Review]

Traveling abroad is an excellent way to expand on your horizons, learn about new cultures, and gain a great deal of respect and understanding for the world in which we all live.  However, for anyone who’s ever stayed in a beach resort where you’re asked not to leave the property, it’s easy to see the vast contrast between the tourism luxury at the hotel, and … Continue reading “Infinity Pool”: A Visceral, Surreal, Sci-Fi Nightmare [Review]

Top 70 Movies Shown on “The Last Drive In with Joe Bob Briggs”

For over 40 years, the legendary John Bloom (or as he’s professionally known “Joe Bob Briggs”) has served as a champion of the types of films that most critics wouldn’t touch.  Between reviewing movies at drive-ins and grindhouses, and promoting low budget gems on his numerous TV series over the years, Joe Bob has certainly done a lot for not just horror, but genre films … Continue reading Top 70 Movies Shown on “The Last Drive In with Joe Bob Briggs”

Servant: “Seánce” Review

Things just keep getting weirder and more tense on Servant!  The latest episode introduces two new characters and takes things from eccentric and fun weird to downright disturbing pretty quickly… Live In Nurses Picking up where last week left off, the live-in nurses Dorothy hired Bev and Bobbie are just as hilariously strange and eccentric as you’d expect from this series.  They open with a … Continue reading Servant: “Seánce” Review

“The Lair” – Movie Review

Science gone wrong remains a popular subgenre of both sci-fi and horror (often at their intersection) going all the way back to the monster movies of the 1950s.  In Shudder’s latest exclusive film The Lair, we see extra-terrestrial monster horror set against the backdrop of a war drama and the result is a decent action-horror movie that despite taking itself too seriously at times, ends … Continue reading “The Lair” – Movie Review

“Hansel & Gretel: Witch Hunters” 10 Years Later – A Campy, Fun Horror/Action Thriller

Who else remembers that odd trend in the early 2010’s when studios were putting out gritty, action-oriented adaptations of classic fairy tales?  This trend included 2011’s Red Riding Hood, 2012’s Snow White and the Hunstman (and its 2016 sequel), 2013’s Jack the Giant Slayer, as well as Hansel & Gretel: Witch Hunters (also from 2013). The result was a much darker take on some of … Continue reading “Hansel & Gretel: Witch Hunters” 10 Years Later – A Campy, Fun Horror/Action Thriller

“Darkness Falls” 20 Years Later: The Killer Tooth Fairy Movie You Forgot Existed

If there’s one thing the horror genre is known for, it’s taking every single holiday, fairy tale, or beloved children’s icon and making it demented and terrifying.  We’ve had killer Santas, so in 2003 filmmakers tried to do the same with the tooth fairy and the result was Darkness Falls. Critics and audiences didn’t warm up to it at the time, and in the years … Continue reading “Darkness Falls” 20 Years Later: The Killer Tooth Fairy Movie You Forgot Existed

Top 5 Creepy “Web Footage” Movies

As society and technology evolves, so too does the art of filmmaking.  The 2010s saw a massive trend of “found footage” horror movies after being popularized by Blair Witch Project in 1999 and again by Paranormal Activity in 2009.  But as technology grew and things like Skype, Zoom, and FaceTime became more popular, the genre evolved again into what I like to call “Web Footage”. … Continue reading Top 5 Creepy “Web Footage” Movies
