The Hoot Owl Review

With social media as it is, it’s hard to not hear about movies, especially if you are a horror nut like myself. So as I was scrolling through my movie options last night I came across The Hoot Owl. I haven’t heard a word about this movie, but the trailer looked decent enough, so I took a chance and rented it.

The Hoot Owl follows the story of a young couple, April and Scott, who along with her sister [...]

Never Talk to Strangers

The Black Phone Review

Blumhouse Productions have been around since 2009 and have made a name for themselves as the Hollywood go-to studio if you wanted to film decent sized budget horror movie. They have produced 85 films to date and, full disclosure, I have not been a fan of most of them. They generally tend to be too generic or sanitized for my tastes. They have produced some great movies, but they are few and far between in my opinion. When I heard [...]

Forgive Me Father for I am Sin

The Devil's Hand Review

The Devil's Hand poster

One of my favorite sub-genres is theological horror. There are some really great movies like The Exorcist and Saint Maud, but there are also some really bad ones, as well, like The Remaining and End of Days. Seeing that Karl Mueller wrote this movie and he also wrote/directed one of my favorite found footage movies — Mr. Jones — I decided to give The Devil’s Hand a chance. Worse case scenario, I waste 86 minutes of my time [...]

Unsheltered Review

I got to say, Tubi is REALLY stepping up their game with horror movies lately. It’s been my platform of choice for the past month and I have yet to see a really bad movie; I’m sure they are on there, but haven’t been disappointed yet.

Unsheltered is the directorial debut of Marcus Small and it was filmed in Orlando, Florida (my old stomping grounds).  The story is told with a mix of formats — found footage (from the main [...]

How Far Would You be Willing to Take a Dare?

The Dare Review

The Dare poster

As a rabid horror fan, I am always looking for a newer movie to watch, maybe something that I missed when it was released or something that went straight to VOD because of the pandemic. The Dare is yet another movie that I “put on for background noise,” but ended up on the edge of my seat, watching every minute of it with my undivided attention and hitting replay as soon as the end credits rolled. I’ve seen people complain [...]

Not All Miracles are Holy

Godforsaken Review

Godforsaken poster

Godforsaken follows an independent filmmaker who is documenting his trip back to his home town to attend a high school friend’s funeral. But when Lisa seemingly comes back from the dead and starts performing miracles, the filmmaker and his friends try to uncover the mystery surrounding this resurrection. Some people thinks she’s God, and some think she is the devil. You’ll have to watch the movie and find out.

I am a bit of a found footage freak. I’ve lost [...]
