I am definitely setting myself up for some pretty harsh criticism with my next statement, but here goes nothing. Remakes are not even close to as bad of a thing as most horror fans would have you believe. Quite frankly, I have liked the majority of remakes, reboots, and reimaginings that have been produced in the genre over the last decade or so. The latest that I’ve enjoyed quite a bit is Kevin Kölsch and Dennis Widmyer’s Pet Sematary. [...]

The Stranger Beside Me Review
With the recent Netflix film and docu-series, it is only fitting that other other movies on the subject of Ted Bundy make a comeback of their own. One of them making its way back into the sight of the audience is Paul Shapiro’s The Stranger Beside Me.
While working at a crisis center in the 70’s, Ann Rule, unwittingly becomes friends with soon-to-be notorious serial killer, Ted Bundy.
Ted Bundy is one of the most [...]
The Dark Side of the Moon Review
I don’t get the chance often enough, but I enjoy watching sci-fi horror films quite a bit. Everyone knows that there is an upper epsilon of outer space horror flicks out there, but that isn’t to say there aren’t a whole slew of others that deserve everyone’s attention just as equally. One of those lesser-known ones that I am referring to is D. J. Webster’s The Dark Side of the Moon.
In the year 2022, a crew [...]
Us Home Release Review
Whether you love him or hate him, there is no denying the importance of someone like Jordan Peele to the horror genre and genre film in general. While he is still fairly new to the scene as a whole, he has made a huge impact very quickly. His first film made a lot of noise, but he really solidified his place in horror with his latest film, Us.
Us – The Movie
I generally use this platform to speak [...]
The Jurassic Dead Review
Not too long ago, it seemed that everyone and their mother was making a zombie flick. The sub-genre was extremely saturated and it didn’t take long to bore of it. Now, with a great deal of time having passed since my last dance with the un-dead, I figured it was a great time to check out one of the most original films I’ve ever encountered. I’m referring to Milko Davis and Thomas Martwick’s The Jurassic Dead.
My most recent trip to the movie theater was to watch a new horror anthology film. I wanted to keep this train rolling, so I could think of no better way to do so than with yet another film showing off some of the genre’s best indie talents. I am referring to 2018’s anthology, Hi-Death.
Two friends decide to take a “Death Tour” while visiting beautiful Hollywood, California. They are taken on an increasingly horrifying journey, created [...]
