Insidious: The Last Key Review
I’ve been on a huge giallo kick lately and while the films of Fulci, Argento, and the rest of the maestros of the golden age of horror will forever be held in high regard, it is nice to get back into something more modern. I have really enjoyed this franchise ever since the first installment and I am happy to finally view its latest chapter, directed by Adam Robitel, Insidious: The Last Key.
Master clairvoyant, Elise Rainier (Lin Shaye), [...]
After months of watching movies “just for fun,” I figured it’s time to dust off the old keyboard and share a few of my thoughts on one. I’m not sure I even remember how to do this, but what better way to dive back into the swing of things than with Ted Geoghegan’s newest film, Mohawk.
During a time when the Brits and Americans were at war, the Mohawk tribe is doing its best to remain neutral. This is [...]
Hell of the Living Dead Review
I think you guys would realize this by now…but I have a LOT of free times on my hand and I mean a LOT of it. So once again, it is time for gaming and VRV and I must choose a film from my watch list. Well, did I find a gem of a film today. Let me take you back to 1980 with this time machine, so that we can take a close look at the film Virus – [...]
The Autopsy of Jane Doe Review
Now this is one I have wanted to see for a while and I can thank Hulu and Showtime for this. I remember how bad I wanted to see The Autopsy of Jane Doe when they announced this film and just like my film review will, the promotional campaign for this film kept everything and anything about it under lock and key. I think that helped a lot with keeping the viewer guessing on what is going on. But before [...]
Better Watch Out Guest Review
So by turning on VRV, I decided to watch one of the movies on my viewing list while I gamed. The choice of the day — 2016’s Better Watch Out. The film claims to be a play on the old home invasion films, but it has one huge twist during half of the film that I can not say without giving it away. So it is a bit of a true challenge to review this film without giving away [...]
The Lift Review
In horror, whether literature or film, we’ve seen haunted automobiles, haunted washing machines, and of course haunted houses. Very rarely have we seen anything like a haunted elevator shaft. That is unless you’ve watched Dick Maas’ 1983 film, The Lift, of course.
After a brief power outage, a group of had-too-much-to-drink couples gets stuck inside of an elevator. With the elevator’s air conditioning also not working, the group doesn’t last long, passing out from heat exhaustion and almost losing [...]
The Stendhal Syndrome Review
There have been a number of times that I’ve changed my mind about a particular film, instances where I’ve gone from hating a movie the first time seeing it, only to enjoy it immensely during my next visit. That seems to be the case, once again, with Dario Argento’s 1996 film, The Stendhal Syndrome.
Officer Anna Manni (Asia Argento, Demons 2, The Church) is trying to catch a serial killer that the department has been tracking for [...]
