Something Witchy

Manson Family Movies Review

It’s no secret that America is fascinated with serial killers and other true crimes. While I’m not sure where this fixation comes from, I can’t deny that I, too, am intrigued by all of the sociopaths walking the face of the earth. There are countless documentaries, made-for-television movies, and TV series telling these true tales of terror, but there are none that are quite like the Manson Family Movies directed by John Aes-Nihil.

The Plot

Many believe that Charles Manson [...]

Is God Still There?

Darlin' Review

There are quite a few films in the horror genre that are touted as being some of the best that I simply just do not enjoy. It is rare that I revisit these films to ever give them a second chance, but it is a different story entirely when said films receive a direct sequel. I was more than ready to give Pollyanna McIntosh a fighting chance to redeem what Lucky McKee had failed to do for me years ago, [...]

Long Live the King

Godzilla: King of the Monsters Review

In my last review, I made mention of the fact that I have gone to the theaters more times this year than any other of the previous five or so. While this statement is wholeheartedly true, there are also quite a few films I still managed to miss during their original theatrical runs. One of them that I greatly regret missing in that fully immersive experience is Michael Dougherty’s Godzilla King of the Monsters.

Ma Review

With still a few months to go, 2019 has already been a pretty good year for horror cinema. I think I’ve gone to the movies more this year than any of the previous five or so and I really haven’t walked out of the theater disappointed yet. One film that was great the first time around and even more so after a re-watch, is Tate Taylor’s Ma.

The Plot

A group of friends looking to score some booze get [...]

I’ve Been at the Bottom of the Barrel

Unlisted Owner Review

It doesn’t happen often, but I am occasionally approached by filmmakers, offering me an opportunity to check out their work. I have seen the good, the bad, and the ugly at this point, so I am always open to give someone’s newest project a chance without much hesitation. This time around, it was director Jed Brian’s Unlisted Owner on the chopping block.

The Plot

A week after moving in, a family of five is murdered in their new home, adding [...]

Damn Girl, I Like You Already

Ghosts of Mars Review

Ghosts of Mars

While most diehard horror fans have their own favorite directors, most every day moviegoers won’t recognize their names. There are, however, names that have become synonymous with the genre, even for casual fans. One of those names is, of course, John Carpenter. I have managed to catch most of his flicks throughout the years, but one that has always escaped me until now is his 2001 film, Ghosts of Mars.

The Plot

In a distant future, a Mars police [...]
