From time to time, there are horror flicks that garner a lot of attention. They are touted as being “the best” or some other overly exaggerated term that disregards all of the other “best” movies that came before. I generally get pretty frustrated with these because, more often than not, I do not agree with those powerful opinions. One of the latest making a commotion amongst fans is Haunt, directed by Scott Beck and Bryan Woods. Guys, this movie [...]
After all of the years running this website, it’s hard to stay enthusiastic film after film. It’s not a tough “job,” yet still, sometimes it feels as if it’s a chore to get through some of the stuff that crosses my path.
