The Stand: “Blank Pages” Review

As The Stand begins to settle in on its long term storyline, this third episode “Blank Pages” features less of the plague that wiped out humanity and more of the impending conflict between those that follow Mother Abigail and Randall Flagg. But once again, it feels more like a series of jumbled up vignettes than a clear and concise narrative.  And it all stems from … Continue reading The Stand: “Blank Pages” Review

Terror Train vs. New Year’s Evil

Two early slashers, two New Year’s Eve parties, two movies that turned 40 this year, there’s oddly a lot in common between Terror Train and New Year’s Evil.  Neither are quite as well-known as other slasher classics, but they both capitalized on New Year’s Eve, a holiday which doesn’t get as much attention in cinema, and they both did so in the very same year. … Continue reading Terror Train vs. New Year’s Evil

However, between streaming, drive-ins, and the few months that AMC and Regal were open, we still … Continue reading Top 10 Best Horror Movies of 2020

Top 5 Disappointing Horror Movies of 2020

It’s been quite the year (in more ways than one), and while movie theaters were sadly shut down for much of the year (and some still are), there were still a good bit of horror movies released.  Some were great, others less so.

The Stand: “Pocket Savior” Review

Following a premiere episode that was okay at best, The Stand really picked things up in the second episode “Pocket Savior”.  The nonlinear timeline still seems like an odd choice, but it’s put to much better use here.  It also helps that the series has already introduced the Captain Trips virus, so this episode is free to focus more on character, and that’s definitely what … Continue reading The Stand: “Pocket Savior” Review

He brings joy to millions of people, and for some odd reason also helps advertise for Coca-Cola.  As loving and jolly as he can be however, … Continue reading Top 10 Killer Santas from Movies and TV

The Stand: “The End” Review

“The Stand” infamously remains Stephen King’s longest novel and adapting it is no easy task.  Mick Garris valiantly attempted a four part TV miniseries back in 1994, and the for the most part, it was very successful and well made (for its time). A modern” retelling isn’t a bad idea in theory, but it could very easily go wrong.  So how does CBS All Access’ … Continue reading The Stand: “The End” Review
