For the past couple of years, I’ve taken it upon myself to compile a list of some of the best things that horror had to offer. I am not an authority on the matter whatsoever, and when it comes to 2020, the first thing we all think about isn’t “the best” of anything. Still, I think it is important to look back on the year and try to remember all of the good that us genre fans were given.
Possessor (Uncut) Review
We are now officially three days into December and while I generally like to fill this month with more holiday horror films than any of Santa’s helpers could ever truly handle, I couldn’t help but start off with one not-so-Christmas one.

One film that I would hear or read about over and over again was House of Flesh Mannequins [...]

In a day and age when new restorations of said films are given to fans periodically, there is no longer a reason to ignore them. As I received yet another copy of Harry Kümel’s Daughters of Darkness, there was no better time to finally dive into it.
The Untold Story Review
Many years have passed since I started writing film reviews.
