This year has been a pretty great year for horror films and there are still two months to go. I’ve been lucky enough to have seen plenty of entertaining genre flicks in theaters, making the movie-watching experience that much more grandiose. One of my favorites to experience in this manner was, without a doubt, Alexandre Aja’s Crawl.

10/31 Part II Review
For diehard fans, every day is a good day to watch a horror flick. That doesn’t make the month of October any less special, however. As Halloween approaches, that extra little chill in the air causes just about everyone to get into the spooky spirit. This makes it a perfect time not only for horror flicks of course, but Halloween-themed horror more specifically. One that I have been looking forward to for quite some time is the anthology film, 10/31 [...]
Scary Stories Review
When I was younger, I was terrified of almost everything. I would have nightmares more often than not and was even frightened of my own toys at times. The My Buddy doll that somewhat resembles Chucky comes to mind.

In addition, I’d love to have my older sister read various tales [...]
3 from Hell Review

Needless to say, [...]
Anna and the Apocalypse Review
I’m not sure what is going on with the Universe, but time flies by way too quickly nowadays. Unfortunately, as I get older, that all seems to happen even more rapidly. As if the year didn’t speed by quickly enough on its own, I’ve decided to help things along by watching a film which takes place during Christmas time. The film I am referring to is John McPhail’s Anna and the Apocalypse.

Bed of the Dead Review
We all grew up hearing the saying “don’t judge a book by its cover.” Being someone who grew up with a video rental store down the street from me, I made it a habit to do just that, whenever perusing the horror aisle. Seeing all of the VHS cover art on display was what made the hobby such an exciting one. Something equally as important as [not] judging a book, or in this case a film, by its cover is [...]
