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 [...]
I Love Your Black Weiner, Mr. Daniels

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.

In hopes of bringing her family closer, Anna has invited a group of Thanksgiving re-enactors to her home for the holiday. Never breaking character, the new guests take some [...]
Now You Know Where the Party Is
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.
