Aside from a recent return to that thing they call a movie theater after more than a year, I have really been slacking when it comes to my movie-viewing hobby. For months, films have just been stacking up all around me because, lets face it, even when I’m not watching films, I am still buying them. With no real set direction to head in, I figured what better way to re-start my film journey than with another [hopefully] good old [...]
Back when video rental stores still existed, I remember walking the aisles for what seemed like hours, hunting for the next best horror flick to watch. Now that those places have gone the way of the dinosaurs, it is almost even more difficult to choose a film for the night’s viewing. Sure, everything is at our fingertips now, but between countless streaming services to pick from and the hundreds of physical media stored on my shelves, I spend more time [...]

I’m not sure if this one will kick me back into review overdrive, but at least it’s a step in the right direction. So, after weeks of intention, let me stall no further as I dive into F.C.

As I grew older, however, I realized the error of my ways and now I find myself seeking the next best film that fits the bill quite often. Read on to see how Christopher Landon’s Freaky compares to some of the greats we’ve seen over [...]
Happy Times Review
I’ve never been one to plan many things ahead of time. My life is pretty routine, but when I veer off path and do things out of the ordinary, I like for them to be spontaneous. I guess the same can be said for my movie viewing. Every time I try to plan out the next few films I’m going to watch, a new one comes out of nowhere and squeezes its way into said schedule. That is exactly what [...]
